I just wanted to clarify our earlier post because I feel it didn’t clearly layout what area of retail collectors may experience some difficulty finding these figures. So, to be clear, please accept this clarification. Our earlier article on the possibility that wave 2 might not be found everywhere on Force Friday II, found HERE, is written from a “brick and mortar” perspective. It should much less of an issue to find this “other” wave online. I just wanted to be clear on this point. So, if you’re going out on Force Friday II, have your devices handy. You never know if you might need them. Good luck to everyone!
As you probably already know very well by now, there should be two waves of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures available on Force Friday II. Jedi Temple Archives has learned that a possibility exists that the second of the two waves may not show up on September 1st, but arrive shortly thereafter. Just be of the mindset that if you don’t see that second wave on day one, it’s availability is imminent.
Gree is now showing up in many stores across the United States. I was able to find at least 12 Toys R Us in my area that had them in stock and I was able to go pick one up from my local store an hour ago. It was nice to not have to pay that shipping or have to fiddle with sticking random things into my cart for the free shipping. Take a peek and see if he is available near you for in store pick up.
The Black Series [Phase III] Imperial Royal Guard is IN STOCK on Amazon for $21.99! Special thanks to Michael W. for the alert!
UPDATE: Sorry folks, I checked stock twice before posting and it was there. It’s gone now.
After some fantastic The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ reveals at San Diego Comic Con this year, fans of the line are dying to know what’s next from Hasbro. JTA has “accidentally” come across some invaluable information that collectors should probably prepare themselves for with regards to the 6″ line. Rose (from The Last Jedi), 4-LOM and Dengar (bounty hunters from The Empire Strikes Back) and Han Solo (in his famous Bespin outfit) are likely candidates for the line. As you heard in our SDCC interview with Hasbro, they already have a list in mind of what characters would be part of a 40th anniversary lineup of Episode V if they “were” to do that. Three more Episode V figures only makes that dream more likely, right? As with any rumor that is unofficial, take this scoop with a grain of salt until confirmed by Hasbro. Stay tuned for more “rumors” coming soon!

They may be a bit more expensive, but you also back Kohls Cash. Use Promo: FFSAVE20 to save 20% off your purchase, which makes it actually the right price (plus free shipping!)
Update: Luke Speeder and Vader Centerpiece are now OUT OF STOCK
The Target Exclusive 3-pack has been showing up at discounted prices all over, but so far Ross seems to have the lowest price at $22. If you still need this, now is a good time to go take a look! Thanks to JTA readers Bryan and Merdock for the news.
A little birdie just told us that The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures due for Force Friday II (whatever characters they may be) have FINALLY shipped and are en route to retail. As you know, there has been much speculation on why these case assortments have not leaked yet (on eBay and even brick and mortar). Here is your answer. It looks as if everyone might have an equal chance now since Hasbro intentionally delayed their shipment to prevent…. you know…. as much abuse as possible.
Target.com has put their The Black Series [P3] 6″ Rogue One 3-pack on clearance for $28.98. Might be a good time to grab it if you haven’t yet. You can also get free ship to store which will save on the shipping cost.
Amazon.es gives us a look at some of the new figures coming out on Force Friday II and they’re in stock for a Sept. 1 release. They have Finn (First Order Disguise), Kylo Ren (Episode VIII), Rey(Jedi Training), And Luke (Jedi Master). What do you think about them now that we get a good look at them. Thankfully it isn’t the same old Finn!
UPDATE: These images have been removed.
We heard a rumor! You know there is a Finn in The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line for Force Friday II (or shortly thereafter) right? You should probably expect a version of Finn in some First Order disguise and not in the common/standard outfit with open jacket. We’ve also learned that Poe Dameron should be in some captain’s gear too. But we should all wait to be sure when Force Friday II arrives!
Amazon is trying hard to get rid of their abundance of stock of the Kylo Ren (Unmasked) six-inch figure. This figure has dropped so low it’s now relegated as an add-on item. Click here for the $4.99 TBS6 Kylo Ren…
Would you like to know which one of the four Praetorian Guard styles will be part of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure assortment on Force Friday II? Then click through. But before you do, we can confirm that Maz Kanata is the replacement for the figure removed from the first couple of case assortments and Kylo Ren does indeed come with facial scarring this time around as our friends at Yakface.com have accurately reported. More details to follow soon.
Hurry! SDCC TRU exclusive Clone Commander Gree is back in stock on Toysrus.com. Limit is still 1 per customer.
UPDATE: These are now on backorder! Several people have had theirs be listed on backorder, while some are not.
Today we bring you a first look at some brand new The Black Series 6″ figures thanks to a friend who was able to find them in the Target system. Come take a look at some other never before seen figures after the jump! Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Brandon!
Check out the new Elite Praetorian Guard and the First Order Judicial 6″ Elite Die-Cast figures coming out from Disney that made their way to Instagram. This is the first I’ve seen the name First Order Judicial (heck, it’s blurry so I may even have that wrong) and the Elite Praetorian Guard actually looks much better than I originally expected. I hope the Black Series ones look even better! What do you think? Special thanks to JTA reader Al for the heads up!
With the sea of leaks of products from The Last Jedi line, it’s pretty interesting that NO The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures have leaked out yet, isn’t it? Expect those leaks to hit closer to Force Friday II (which we imagine could be quite imminent). #themoreyouknow
We hope you got to check out our complete and close look at all of the San Diego Comic Con Hasbro exclusives that were available this year. With this recap, you can click any image below and be taken to that release’s Research Droids Review and Visual Guide. On an interesting and related note, we have noticed that availability of these exclusives on eBay seem better than ever and the prices are coming down a bit too. Check it out on eBay!
JTA reader Allen found a ton of 40th Anniversary Legacy Packs marked down at his local Walmart in Smithfield, RI. According to Allen, they are marked down to a mere $15! I know my local Walmarts have more than 20 of these each and they have yet to even mark them down at all. My Walmarts don’t have ANY of the Star Wars figures marked down yet…Which is strange. Have you found the Legacy Pack this cheap yet in your area? Let us know!
Still don’t believe The Black Series [Star Wars 40] 6″ line is out of production? We were waiting for the first store report to come in as we knew this was imminent from one of our sources. These 6″ figures are now being found on clearance at Walmart so they can prep for Force Friday II. Aside from some solid case packs via online, you can all stick a fork in this line. Special thanks to JTA reader Ben H. for sending us the first store report of this.

The Black Series [Phase III] X-34 Landspeeder/Luke Skywalker San Diego Comic Con exclusive release is probably going to disappoint collectors of this line.
