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.

Man,  this line is addictive, lol. I have Darth Vader & C-3PO, and picked up a cheap TFA Finn; now, I want TFA Rey (although, I wish she had the upgraded paint deco) and Han, Tarkin, the Porg 2 pk, the cheap Rogue One figs,.... I'm curious what the new paint technique could do for some of t... read more

My first thought when I saw Hoth Leia?  nice base for a Bespin Escape version,  just switch out hands, new head & lower legs  ;) I like the accessories, but, no Mynock cave mask? Bring on the Bespin Han!   I liked the astromech 3 pk (Amazon exc?), untill I saw damage on R2, a... read more

I finally broke down and bought my first 6" figjure, Darth Vader. I've also always been a 3 3/4" collector,  and I've been tempted a few times, but, I guess I just couldn't resist the power of the dark side, lol Well, I added the Walgreens 3PO to my collection this week. I've been tempted t... read more

 Maybe one could simply switch-out characters and do different displays at a time...   That's the plan in a perfect world.  For me personally, switching out a display takes some time.  There's taking down the figures, which then lay on the floor until they take the place in t... read more

Wow...everyone's dumping the 6-inch line? I feel like I'm enjoying it now more than ever. But I do understanding trying to spread one's limited funds amongst varying scales becoming an uphill battle, as it were. I'm not made of money myself, so I have to be somewhat selective also. That being said, ... read more

I'm just finding I don't need multiple representations of one thing.  Whether it's Star Wars or superheroes or GI Joe.  I'm definitely not "getting out".

I just replaced my 6" Star Wars display with a rad new MCU display and now I'm mulling over unloading my 6" stuff.  I don't think I can keep up with two SW scales and between the two, 3.75" is always going to be THE SW scale for me.  I don't want to jump the gun though because I know I'v... read more
