The Black Series and More Found In Ireland

Posted by Chuck | August 15, 2014 at 09:11 PM ET

JTA reader Toryn has a great store report from Ireland! Click through to read about his all-day toy run where he found a little bit of old and new!

I spent the entire day shopping today and as a result have quite a bit to report on. The majority of which struck me as quite odd. The first image of the Wave 6" Black Series came from Smyths Toystores here in Dublin the TRU of Ireland. The weird thing about this is they had only as far as Wave 2 of TBS 3.75" and Wave 2 of the mission series. They had NO Saga Legends. In a kids toy store ?? (Sidenote: I'm not complaining I hate 5POA the logic just makes no sense !!)

I then went to a comic book store where I found the huge amount of black series figures. They had about 5 figures of EVERY figure in Wave 4 3.75" TBS. I was surprised when I checked that they had NO Wave 4 of the Black Series 6" !! In a collector based store ??

Finally I went to a smaller toy store chain known as Toymaster and got myself a Padme from Wave 1 of TBS quite cheap. They had a pile of the posters as seen in the 3rd picture. I asked could I take some and the woman said as many as I want so I took 5 or 6. When I got home I was really surprised to find the first row of figures on the poster named at the bottom as "Star Wars Legacy Collection 3.75" Basic figures" numbers 1 to 15 are all actually the last two waves of the 30th Anniversary collection. Any chance you could shed some light on this ??

As you can imagine my head hurts from trying to figure out what is going on in Irish stores !! Keep up all the good work !!
