Now, there are 3 of them??? In the wee hours of the morning, I received the above image from Instagram user argent_no_1. It shows another 6″ Black Series Sith Trooper release, this time sporting a distinctive white box and the words “First Edition” emblazoned in a circular call out on the front. It has subsequently turned up for sale on Amazon.de. As you may recall, we were the first to reveal details for the packaging for the Second Sister Inquisitor which also features similar packaging design. I am now of the opinion that there are several of these “chase” packaging versions of select figures from the Black Series. If you review our Master List, you’ll see TBS figures with “Metallic” and “Pearl” after their names. (Second Sister has “Graphite” on its box). I believe these are all special packaging variants. Again, with zero communication as to what this “First Edition” Sith Trooper may officially be, it’s all speculation, but it is reminiscent of the “First Day of Issue” figures for the Legacy and Clone Wars line, the Ultimate Galactic Hunt (UGH) campaign and those chase versions of foil backed TVC figures. It does beg the question: why this wasn’t released “first” to reflect the packaging’s distinctive call out?
Update: To throw another possibility on the pile, we do have 2 rumored figures, “London (i.e. Rey) White” and “Bruges White” on our Master List as well. Could “white” be a reference to the color of the box on these two figures? The plot thickens… as the Amazon.de listing has been removed.
