Looks like Chewbacca is getting the shaft on receiving a medal again as Jedi Temple Archives has posted a new update regarding the status of the Princess Leia (Ceremonial) figure from Wave 7 and 8 of the Black Series. She has been removed from both assortments and has been replaced by an extra stormtrooper (wave 7) and an extra clone (wave 8).
No word as to why or future availability.
Our good friends at Jedi Temple Archives have posted some details regarding what we may expect to see in terms of which 3.75″ figures will be seeing higher production runs than others (i.e., which individual figures will be offered as full case assortments to online stores, etc.).
Some of this sounds like good news to fill demand on certain figures, while there’s also a couple of figures that just don’t make sense to see high production runs (such as Dutch Vander).
Personal Note: That last assortment case that’s full of new figures, such as Carbonite Han, Boushh Leia, new Jawas, and of course Mosep has me concerned. Will this assortment even hit retail? Will it be in very short supply? Check out JTA’s report and be sure to share your thoughts there or in our forums.
