Collectors are starting to receive their wave 21 cases of 6” Black Series figures which includes the Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan) figure first offered as a Star Wars Celebration exclusive. Collector Matt Z. noticed upon opening the Obi-Wan that he doesn’t include either of the extra hand accessories from the exclusive, despite Hasbro Pulse website showing the two-figures outstretched hand in one of the loose photos.
You may recall a similar solicitation imagery mix-up with the retail 6” Bespin Han Solo being shown with the pointer figure hand which was only available in last year’s convention exclusive Exogorth Escape Set.
Bummer, I guess that will make the SWCC Version all that more desirable.
Now that Father’s Day has passed, Target has placed the Black Series Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) and TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) on clearance starting at 50% off. Time to army build those peg warmers.
Update: 50% off sale also includes the Retro Collection assortment.
Update 2: Han Solo and Luke Skywalker are now 70% off
Sponsor Entertainment Earth is now processing preorders for Black Series Wave 21. Be sure to check your account for a status update.
Thanks to Matt Z. for the alert.
While we don’t have any official confirmation (we rarely do), we have received a report that the 6″ Black Series figure available with the Jedi: Fallen Order bundle through GameStop may also be available via Galaxy’s Edge/Disney Parks/Shop Disney making this figure more of a shared exclusive. Again, this is just a rumor and I’ll be looking for more corroboration and will update when possible.
In addition to preorders processing for Black Series Archive Wave 2 preorders, reports are coming in of them being found at Target as well. The image above comes courtesy of Don.
We’ve received multiple reports of preorders being processed from sponsor Entertainment Earth for the 6” Black Series Archive Wave 2 assortment. If you have done so, check the status of your order and watch for shipping notifications soon.
Reader Chad R. reports finding part of the next wave of 6” Black Series (BT-1) at GameStop in Alabama.
It looks like the Obi-Wan Kenobi and BT-1 Black Series figures are now available for preorder again on Amazon after long-standing preorders were cancelled last week.
As a follow up to our report from last week, Target has updated more Hasbro product DPCIs to “discontinued” status. Items include Star Wars Resistance (basic figures and two packs), 6″ Black Series Chewbacca (Vandor-1), Solo: A Star Wars Story 6 pack of troopers, and the Galaxy of Adventures (GOA) tube figures.
@Laughing_Place via Twitter reports that the 3 new exclusive 6″ Black Series sets (along with other official Galaxy’s Edge merchandise) are now available for purchase at DTD World of Disney* which is outside of Disneyland.
Update: StarWarsCollector.com has posted that these will also be available to purchase online through ShopDisney.com in July.
