Black Series Captain Rex Quick Fix

There has been a lot of commentary out there about the helmet size of the new Captain Rex (#09) figure from The Black Series being too small. There is a very easy “fix” that most people can do if you have some older Clone Wars Rex figures laying about. Click on through for a quick fix on bringing that shrunken head version back to the front lines of your collection.

Black Series Awakening at Target?

Picture1

Over the weekend, forum member Jodo ran into something very few people have seen at a Target store in a long, long time… several new Black Series figures.  Not full cases, of course, since Target seems to reject the notion of giving their customers a full selection of Star Wars figures these days, but it still seems like a positive sign (I ran into some stores that also stocked last week, though it was as usual, just 2-3 figures at a time).

Keep those store reports coming in, and hopefully the last handful of figures from the final waves of pre-Episode 7 Black Series actually make it to the pegs in decent supply before the onslaught of product in September…

TBS #02 Luke Skywalker Elbow Pin Variant

Speaking of variants, a new figure variant has surfaced that actually improves upon the pre-existing figure. Newer releases of #02 Luke Skywalker (Hoth) now feature color matched (tan) elbow pins. The original VC95 and TBS #02 releases has contrasting gray pins that stood out quite noticeably. Click the image above for a closer look.

Thanks to our friend Matt Booker from JediNews for the heads up.

TBS #08 Stormtrooper Card & Insert Variant

As suspected, the initial shipments of the Black Series #08 Stormtrooper that included the “#08” sticker on the card back and bubble insert covering the “#15” have been corrected. My recent case from Entertainment Earth included 2 stormtroopers, both feature this correction. The date stamp is 50651. If this interests you in the slightest, you can click through to check out the comparisons.
