Default Star Wars Black - 6" Action Figures

Star Wars is releasing the long awaited 6" line (comparable to Marvel Legends - but I'm hearing more detailed).

The 6" is expected to Pre-Sell out shortly, and there is also a heavy expectation that Hasbro will cut orders. No word yet on what big box stores will carry it, of if they will carry the figures.




There will also be a 3-3/" line - both lines are expected to be well received. I do expect to see these in the big box stores stores - and I have a good idea of which figures will be hot, since the case breakdown is available.




PREVIEWSworld - STAR WARS BLACK 6-IN AF ASST 201301 (C: 1-1-1)

Shhhuuuccckkkksssss! I haven't bought figures faithfully in a LONG time! I have tons of the old SW figures. Looks like I'm getting back into toys grrrrrr

The 3-3/4 Vader looks awesome, love that version.

I placed my order today, and my distributor told me that I can't be promised because of allocations (on the 6" figures). I could get my order cut, or not get my shipment on the first go around (there tends to be split shipments on Hasbro).

My shipping is cheap from the distributor - so probably something like $8-12 for all 3 cases.

Someone is confident they can get at least 10 of the Boba Fetts at ComicCon as they're selling them for $109 and have sold 3 already

If they're limited, I think they'll go higher than $109 as it's exclusive to the show, on a new figure line, detailed 6' figs, and star wars fans are insane. i once joked you could stamp Star Wars on a dog turd, put it on ebay and advertise it as authentic Wookie Crap and some nerd would buy it.

Ya, and the Sandtrooper and Darth Maul figure seem to be selling out for individual pre-sells. The cases only come 4 packs - so you get one set and no duplicates in every case. There will be no figure shortage in these releases.

LOL that'll be interesting to see how that goes. They limit the number you can buy and they sell out very quickly. Usually you have to have a ticket to even have the opportunity to purchase. And then you have to hope that they don't sell out when it's your turn to buy!

These are pretty cool..is everyone in here preordering from the link in the OP? Or is there other sites that are good with preordering figures for a reasonable price?

And do you HAVE to buy the entire set? I'd maybe be interested in picking up the Stormtrooper and R2D2.

Lastly, no mention of what stores would possibly be carrying these in August? Might be easiest to just pick up then.

I just used the first link as an example. You can order from BBT if you like. They also have them by individual figure. Pricing is below SRP (I do not expect that to last) - so I would get them while you can.



For the set:
2013 Star Wars 6" Black Series 01 - Case / Set of 4 - Star Wars 2013 Star Wars Star Wars Black

Sandtrooper is sold out

R2-D2:
2013 Star Wars 6" Black Series 01 - R2-D2 - Star Wars 2013 Star Wars Star Wars Black

Awesome! Thanks for the post..I've actually never heard of BBT before *Bookmarks*

$79.99 AND they won't charge until they ship, can't beat that. I think I'll just grab the whole set.





Here's a few more pics I just found

I normally don't share the competition (I can't compete with them lol).

Glad I could have helped!
