    The lack of Jawas on any rumor list disturbs me greatly.

    Them little buggers could make me break down and buy a 6" figure.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I'm just confused how Jawas, or R2 droids, or ugnaughts, or Ewoks, or Yoda can't actually BE 6" in size for this line. Whatta ripoff!

    Bespin Fatigued Luke is my fave in this whole figure line.

    The stormtrooper's helmet is really odd, they replaced the Sandtrooper's "mouth" segment with a new one that simply doesn't fit, it's too big and bulbous.

    Luke Bespin looked good at first blush, but the clearer pics show a horrendous likeness, a caricature at best. Hopefully that gets another pass before retail.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Jawas you say.... you want Jawas? Then BAM! Your wish is granted. Jawas are coming.

    Hasbro's Customer Service page kinda spilled the beans about some upcoming figures.

    6" Black Series Jabba The Hut
    6" Black Series Speederbike
    6" Black Series E4 Chewbacca
    6" Black Series E4 Tie Fighter Pilot
    6" Black Series E5 C-3PO
    6" Black Series E5 Darth Vader
    6" Black Series E6 Luke Jedi
    6" Black Series E2 CloneTrooper
    6" Black Series Jawas

    There's also multiple numbers for the Sandtrooper. Which may mean we'll see the other pauldrons.

    The TIE Fighter Pilot could be potentially awesome and a great way for Hasbro to redeem themselves after that Stormtrooper they are releasing.

    Jabba? Really. Holy crap. Don't get me wrong, that thing theoretically should be awesome, but the basic figures aren't moving well. He'd have to be a $40 figure, at least, and a much tougher sell. Not to mention he'd take up a ton of shelf space, which retailers don't like. He'd probably have to be an exclusive.

    I've got to wonder if one of the multiple "Sandtroopers" is a typo for "Sand People." Seems odd to get Jawas without them. (And "Jawas" plural seems not in keeping with the TBS packaging aesthetic.)

    In any case, no doubt I'd at least get the Jawas if they actually hit retail.

    Now... "The lack of Ewoks on any rumor lists disturbs me greatly. Them little buggers could make me break down and buy a 6" figure."

    I don't know what area you're living in. But they were selling fairly hotly for months.
    We're seeing some lingering now because stores kept reordering. But those will likely move as X-Mas approaches.
    And they pretty much already confirmed that Jabba was coming during an interview during NYCC.
    The Speederbike w/ Biker Scout shares the same Assortment Number, and has been confirmed to be $40-$45.

    Possibly. But we got 12" Sand People long before we got 12" Jawas. And I think it suggests we'll get 2 per pack.

    Now... "The lack of Ewoks on any rumor lists disturbs me greatly. Them little buggers could make me break down and buy a 6" figure."
    Give 'em time. I'm sure at least Wicket has a good chance of showing up in the next few years.

    SoCal, east of LA. Target's about the only store that carries them, and they haven't been able to get rid of them since the get-go.

    2014 six inch black series rumors

    Bossk
    IG-88
    Lando ( Outfit not specified but I hope its Cloud City )
    Jango Fett
    Mace Windu

    Of course we're still going to see Luke Cloud City and Obi Wan Revenge of the Sith, plus the stormtrooper and Anakin Revenge of the Sith.

    I heard this on the sideshow message boards from someone that seemed to be in the know.

    Luke Jedi Knight and C3PO are also possible. Chewbacca is rumored too.

    And I'm sure they'll do Darth Vader.
    BAD Pts Need: R5-C7 lf leg (x2), , R4-P44 right leg BAD Pts Offered For Trade: PM me - I have lots of parts now including BG-J38!. New Kyle Katarn is also available.
