Clone Trooper (BD 16) [Cip-Quad Cannon] - Hasbro - The Legacy Collection (2008)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: The Black Series [Star Wars 40]

We all know that Toys R Us in the USA is liquidating their inventory, but JTA reader Jason A. sends us a disconcerting image. His local store received a literal palet of Legacy Packs from The Black Series [Star Wars 40] line. How many of these bleeping things did they make? Can we expect more stuff like this to show up? Will the solid cases of Darth Revan finally arrive? Right now these sets are marked down to $23.99, but many other retailers have already cleared these out for $10 or less per pack. Is this a testament to how small our community is, or is it more of a testament to how lousy distribution is?

The Ghosts Of The Black Series Past.... For You.... On eBay

I have seen some strange eBay auctions in my past, but this one stands out. Is anybody in the mood for empty boxes of already unboxed Hasbro The Black Series 6″ figures? Special thanks to Paul B. for the alert. (By the way as an aside, doesn’t the word “unboxing” just make you want to hurt someone?)

Early Bird "Empty Box" Promotion: 40 Christmases Ago This Year!

Yahoo! has republished their popular article on the vintage Kenner Star Wars Early Bird Kit (which originally ran December 2015). Because this December marks the official 40th Christmas anniversary of Kenner’s groundbreaking Early Bird Kit “empty box” promotion, Yahoo! has wisely decided to rerun the article and update it to include The Black Series 6″ Legacy Pack which was inspired off of this original collectible as well as other “insider” updates. We should also note, although not mentioned in the article, that Hasbro paid homage to this concept back in 2005 for 3.75″ scaled action figures for The Saga Collection. You can check out both the Early Bird Certificate Package and the Early Bird Figures sets in our Research Droids Reviews. In the meantime, check out the revised article from Yahoo! News.

Another Gamestop Blunder For The Books

JTA Reader Alexander F. sends us in this report of his latest purchase from Gamestop.com. He originally ordered two Artoo-Detoo 40th Anniversary Black Series figures, but when they showed up, he got a big surprise. He opened the large box to find two Supreme Leader Snoke (throne) instead of the Artoo’s. The receipt even says Artoo 40th Anniversary. This seems to happen more than it should. Have any of you had a similar mistake happen? Let us know in the comments below!

Last Post On 40th Anniversary Wave 2 (Promise?)

If you’re a Star Wars collector, you know how this goes. You feel like you’re a yo-yo with how information is relayed and what the true status of the figures you actually want is. As you know, and some people feel we have harped on this for way too long already, is that 40th Anniversary wave 2 is and has been completely sold out since about the summertime. (In fact, it’s believed that this was the case even prior to 2017 SDCC – however, we can not wholly conclude that.) But there is great news ahead. Some of you saw our post last night before we were asked to pull it, but now we can share the details. (more….)

So, Where Are Those 40th Anniversary Wave 2 Figures?

You saw our friendly warning here months ago about about the 40th Anniversary The Black Series 6″ wave 2 figures; that they were completely sold out. Various interviews with Hasbro at SDCC this years allowed some to believe that they were shipping at that time, but we were cautious to not be eager about this news. But as you know, no units arrived at retail and many people’s pre-orders weren’t fulfilled and remain open or have been canceled. Now Hasbro answers Star Wars Action News’ question (from their HASCON interview) that they’ve all been shipped. Now, there could be some in transit somewhere, but it looks like these figures are finally all gone. We believe they’ve always been gone for months now (and actually have sources that confirmed this). If you need them, check eBay quickly because there is an even stronger chance now with this new confirmation that you’ll never see them again… unless Hasbro orders a new batch to be produced. As you can see from the listings, some figures go for obscene amounts.

TBS6 [SW40] Wave 2 Pushed Out AGAIN: This Time 6 More Months

Entertainment Earth once again pushes out their anticipated arrival date of The Black Series [Star Wars 40] wave 2 figures. But this time you’ll have to wait SIX more months until February 2018. Wow, will anyone accept these are just sold out by now? Good news still exists however. With the proof that foreign orders (Europe/UK) will be fulfilled because of extra production, it’s probable Hasbro will do the same for its American collector base which is probably why these orders have been pushed out once again. But that’s just a guess. Whatever the case, we hope you’re all able to secure this great wave of figures at some point.
