Rumor Report: 6″ Black Series Commander Gree Available Again Soon

For those that missed out on the first release of the Toys”R”Us Exclusive 6″ Black Series Commander Gree from 2017, word is (via the 6″ Black Series Collectors group on Facebook) that he may be available sometime again in the near future as distributors have started receiving solicitations and opening preorders again.

Toyguide Update: 6″ Black Series Rey (Jedi Training) Crait (TRU Exclusive)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Toys”R”Us exclusive 6″ Black Series Rey (Jedi Training) Crait figure.

PROS:  The upgraded deco and soft goods for Rey make this far superior (in my opinion) to the standard Black Series figure release. The inclusion  of diecast weapons are a nice touch as they feel weighty in the hand and add a bit more authenticity to the figure. The included Crait base components are nicely sculpted and painted. It will be interesting to see how this environment and Rey interact in the film.

CONS: I, and I think many, feel that issuing superior versions of the same character in such close proximity to the initial figure release date reinforces the practice of collectors waiting out inital product launches. Despite the improvements to the figure and the inclusion of the environmental base, the price of this exclusive at 75% markup over the basic Black Series figure seems excessive.

Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
