Awesome. Hope distribution improves world wide next year for everyone. Long overdue.
Agreed. I hope the good distribution helps to keep the scalpers away as well. I’m getting a little tired of the old “supply and demand” BS line.
Ain’t that the truth. Nothing worse than having to pay double, triple or even more for something.
Here’s the thing, there are only a couple times I get a figure being way out of normal price. An exclusive figure, perhaps SDCC, or an out of production figure. I recently bought Bossk and IG-88 for about 90USD between the two of them. I may not like that price, but I understand that they only make but so many of them.
That’s true. Sometimes we have to bite the bullet if we want it. I know I have.
$40-$45 USD is my limit for out-of-production black series figures, but i only did that once and it was for the legit darth mauls reported on this site , but i’d pay 40-45 for Anakin and Boba Fett
That’s about what we gave for Malgus.
Agreed. Got both Anakin and Maul for about $40 US, but still want a Boba. One day.
TRU have had these on sale at 50% off (worked out at £12.48 a figure) up until last night. There are many happy collectors in the UK right now 🙂
Gosh I wish I’d gone there instead of Forbidden Planet – as you can see I paid full price! £12.48 is a great price especially if you can get Jaina Solo, which is sure to be much sought after.
Yeah I managed to pick her up from the Liverpool TRU thankfully. Also managed to get Snoke, Rose, Poe, Maz, Praetorian Guard, 40th Anniversary C3P0 and Death Star Commander. Christmas came early!
You got 40th Threepio and DSC for £12.48?!?!?!?!
Yup! Full cases were coming and going all over the place apparently but they only had those two when I was there. Join the UK Black Series Collector page on Facebook for loads of up to date reports and sales to keep in the loop 🙂
Managed to get the force link kylo starter set for £12.48 at TRU this week as well – a much more manageable price (especially as I’m hoping to get 2 in due course – one for each of the kids – just waiting for a good deal on a different starter set)!
For those in the Northeast US…I found these figures at a Target in NH yesterday. Left them behind for the next collector, too…not on my “want” list.
I think the sculpt is great, but something about the figure does not appeal to me either. Maybe if the robe was black, or any color but gold. I’ll have to see him in the movie first, and maybe my mind will be changed, but for now this one is an easy pass. It just looks like a near human, old alien in a bath robe.
Yeah, I’m really not sold on Snoke yet. Plus, that figure really looked disgusting…I mean, they did a good job with the sculpt lol.
I don’t think I mind him as a character. I’d certainly like to know more though.
Yeah, as a character, sure, I want to know more. But as nothing more than a character design at this point…I just find him more than a little humorous, to be honest!
Don’t hold your breath on any decent origin / character development for Snoke. He is the brainchild of JJ after all, which means Snoke will likely be a mysterious politician who rose to power using the dark side to manipulate the senate.
I would say it could be Mother Talzen or palpatine taking a new body, but it seems to require too much knowledge of Star Wars for the JJ universe. The Anakin scar on the forehead suggests Vader’s corpse brought to life; the similarity definitely seems intentional.
Yeah, Rian Johnson pretty much just confirmed in a recent interview that we’ll know “exactly as much as we need,” which makes me feel like he’ll just…be there.
I kind of hope there are no “resurrections.” That would be kind of strange.
$25 pounds? for Disney’s own Bruce Jenner doll?
Also available in France at Toys R Us
Yours for a mere €30 ($35.42, 20% VAT included)
Apart from that, not a single Praetorian, ESB Snowtrooper, AT-AT driver, General Leia, Poe Dameron, Rose or Jaina Solo in sight.
But piles and piles of Kylo Ren(remarkably unpopular), Rey (no more, I beg you!!!), Luke, Finn in disguise, and Maz.
