6" The Black Series Anakin Skywalker Figures Not Slated For The First Wave Of 2014
Jay Cochran - October 31, 2013


Yesterday, we showed you some new official images for Hasbro's third wave of 6" The Black Series figures which has been dubbed by Hasbro as the first wave of 2014. The images showed figures for Bespin Luke Skywalker (ESB), Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ep III), and a Stormtrooper (Ep IV).

Earlier in the month during the NYCC, Hasbro released an official image for another as-of-yet unannounced 6" figure in the form of Anakin Skywalker (Ep III). It was originally thought that Anakin would be the fourth figure released in wave 3 since there had only been three figures announced for that wave while the previous two waves had four figures in them. It turns out that is not the case. Hasbro has confirmed for us that Anakin will be released in a later wave and will not be included in wave 3.

During the NYCC we were told that the decision to go from four figures in a wave to three was to give Hasbro some flexibility to re-release figures that maybe didn't see a huge release the first time around.

So just to be clear, wave 3 or the first wave of 2014 will include the following:

- Bespin Luke Skywalker (ESB)
- Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ep III)
- Stormtrooper (Ep IV)


And Anakin Skywalker (shown below) will be released in a subsequent wave, our guess wave 4.

Stormtrooper Luke came today.  I got him from Amazon for $17.  I am not disappointed.     He looks just like X-Wong Luke, my favorite Luke so far.  I was not expecting him to come with the little communicator, a nice addition especially seeing as how they seem to be skimping... read more

No new 6" product at my Target for months.    Same here for the single packed figures. I'm talking like 6-9 months since I've seen anything new on the pegs. They seem to stock the 'deluxe' releases (ie. Jabba) a little more frequently.   I thought I had found Jedi Luke earlier t... read more

Found IG-88 and Cody yesterday but left them because I'm passing in prequel and background characters.  I probably should have picked them up though, for trade bait.  They did look very cool...

I thought I had found Jedi Luke earlier today at my local Walmart (which is pathetic when it comes to toys, especially Star Wars, but that's a whole other thread), but before I could leave the aisle with it, I noticed the package looked pretty beat-up. I mean, we're talking like a twenty-year-old to... read more

No new 6" product at my Target for months.  The nearest one to me has had 2 Obi Wans dangling on the pegs for I don't know how long.

Nope. CW & Rebels are part of the official canon timeline. Everything going forward is part of official canon.
