    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.

    The others you mentioned were rumored months ago by "Stan" on Scum's forums....

    Apperantly this "Stan" supposedly works for Hasbro. And is very good with reliable info.

    Then Stan must be from the Rhode Island province, "Case Packing-Stan."

    I couldn't resist.

    I've only bought the majority of what's been released for BobaFrett. My gift to him. He's getting the Mos Eisley cantina themed characters and I'm going "Special Edition" with it so he gets Boba Fett if I could only find him for Barry.

    That being said, I'm getting a select few to go with my Unleashed.

    From the offerings, I got myself a Sandtrooper (to go with Tusken Unleashed) and I'm nicely impressed.

    I'm going to be getting:

    Luke Bespin - to go with Cloud City Vader Unleashed

    Obi-Wan ROTS - to go with General Grievous Unleashed

    E6 Luke Jedi to go with Slave Leia Unleashed (I'm never buying the 6" Slave Leia figure with way too much articulation showing)

    Stormtrooper
    C-3PO
    Chewbacca
    Lando (if Bespin)

    are all possibilities for me. Maybe I'll have to get myself a Boba Fett and hope they make a Bespin Han and red Bespin Gown Leia.

    I'm thinking of doing that "We would be honored if you joined us" scene in 6".

    IMO, Cloud City is a very underserved or underrated environment of the OT, overshadowed by Jabba's and the cantina.

    I think maybe this scale has a little potential for me after all.

    I also hope for some 6" Jabba goons, but I won't be getting the 6" Jabba the Hutt. I have two (2) SideShow giant Jabbas and that's enough!

    I just want to display a mini-sailbarge fight scene around the Unleashed Slave Leia (so I don't even need Boba Fett for that one).


    With repacks of older figures, you've got to figure on Hasbro re-shipping Boba Fett.


    SHELF-WARMERS:

    R2-D2
    Luke X-Wing
    Slave Leia
    Greedo

    POTENTIAL RE-RELEASE SALES:

    Darth Maul (maybe)
    Sandtrooper
    Han Solo (already being re-released and probably shelf-warming soon)
    Boba Fett

    In fact, a repack case of these (if Han weren't coming with Obi-Wan, Stormy, and Luke Bespin already) would work for this line.

    The TIE Fighter Pilot (unless it's a removeable helmet Jagged Fel or Baron Soontir Fel) doesn't do anything for me. While kind of a black stormtrooper (or shadow trooper) in a similar design vein, it might be the worst choice of a figure for this line yet (assuming they could have not super-articulated Slave Leia).

    But watch Hasbro re-use the Leia body for an Oola repaint or something.

    The big rumor is that six more people will find Boba Fett in 2014.

    Chuxter, Through all the years I've known you, you never cease to be a funny guy!

    Your comment did make me laugh. ( And I still haven't found Boba Fett).

    From what I understand, he has a source (possibly himself?) that works in the factories and is privy to information in the planning stages such as prototypes. He revealed that a few months back when people on RS started calling BS on him, but the broken English and misspellings certainly lead me to believe he's not an American Hasbro employee. A fair chunk of his info comes to pass, but since he's so early in the planning stages, a lot of it gets changed or cut by the time the products hit shelves.

    Actually, the TIE Fighter Pilot is the only figure announced that I'm really excited for. Hasbro is going to have to get it right though and if it ends up with a removable helmet and some EU character or a clone-head underneath, then forget it. No sale.

    The Biker Scout has kind of piqued my interest, but that's definitely a 'wait and see' item.

    IF they get around to making any Skiff Guards, Gamorrean Guards, or other Jabba's goons, then I'll track down a Jabba the Hutt later on. But I'm really not interested in buying Jabba first and having him sit around by himself for years while waiting for some minions.

    If they make enough figures for the appropriate parts, I will totally make a Cruisemissile Captain Frassk.

    Since the Sandtrooper and upcoming Stormtrooper don't have removable helmets, I think it's probably safe to assume that's how they'll be treating other trooper army builders going forward. Also, with it now being canon that the Empire phased out clone troopers in favor of recruits, I doubt that we'll see many more clone heads on OT troopers.
