Star Wars Black Series 3 3/4 figs

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen or gotten any of the 3 3/4" figs? I was wondering if darth vader is a new sculpt or not and if his helmet and mask come off.

I have not seen them in person. But I know that Target has them in the back room. Who all is on wave one?? I have not paid much attention to SW other than the 6 inchers. I want the Mara Jade bad but she is wave 2 I think I remember reading.

Sorry, I didn't take a full card pic when I asked him if he wanted it still.

There's someone else's pic of the card... kind of bland if you ask me, and tiny, much smaller than vintage. I'm actually headed down to the dungeon to take some pics of stuff to sell to raise a lil' money to pay for my toy show entry in a couple months... so if you want, I can take a pic of her next to a vintage card to show how tiny it is(think 4" marvel or MMPR figure card size, maaybe a bit taller).

I'm looking forward to finally* having a well-articulated arena (torn shirt) Padme' in my collection

 

 

 

(*I asked about that figure waaaay back in one of Hasbro's earlier ('6/07?) q&a's, lol)

saw 2x of Biggs, Speederbike Scout, and Anakin at TRU... I didn't think anything special of them, and I don't like the new card style either with the big bubble right in the middle

Does anybody have a link to these figures? I want to see what makes these so special and what the cards look like

I saw Clone Pilot and Anakin tonight. Good stuff imo and I love the card backs being so sleek and small! :) I must get that Padme. Anyone know the DCPI at target for them??

I saw all of wave 1 at TRU yesterday. Can't say I am overly impressed, especially at $10 a pop. I picked up Biggs but passed on the rest. I pretty much already have sufficient versions of the other figures in this wave and the paint jobs on some of these where sloppy. Padme had unpainted joints and not sure why Ceremonial Luke comes with a blaster that looks more fitting for Princess Leia and looked way to long and thin to fit in his holster. The Biker Scout is just a repackaged version of the one that came in the TRU Speeder bike set which I might add was also still sitting on TRU shelves. I am really tired of seeing the same old characters reissued over and over for this line and also not a fan of the Black Series packaging. Its plain and boring. I can forgive it for the 6" line because those figures are new and cool but for the 3.75" its just blah and if sales have been weak on this line I don't see this 3.75" Black series doing much to revitalize it. I will maybe pick up one or two here and there like the wave 2 Mara Jade but for the most part I think I will stick with 6" for now.

I mostly agree. While I think many look good like Anakin, Clone etc etc I don't need another one. Luke I thought was a big improvement but I have yet to see him in person. I does stink about the joints on Padme but a lot of SW figures have been that way for years now and more in wave 2 including Mara are apparently :(

I should just buy the Scout bike but I have not yet so for now I want the Scout.

I would go with the Bike if you can still find it. Its actually a nice update to the Speeder Bike toy and goes well with the figure.

Yeah, I agree, if you're going to spend $10 on a Biker Scout, might as well throw another $10 in and get the bike, lol.

Actually that is the blaster he has in the movie.

I haven't found a great screencap w/ it, yet, but Hamill is holding the long barreled 'Princess Leia' blaster in a photoshoot (w/ just the black shirt/brown pants for that sequence), and, it was also included w/ the Sideshow 1:6 Ceremonial Luke, as well.

 

Update: See 2 posts below for images, courtesy SnTrooper ;)B)

I remember seeing that at some point I think it was a cover of Star Wars Insider, I remember he had the specific blaster and had a dark shirt.
