    The vehicles look pretty interesting. And I like Jabba too. Presume he's part of that black line or whatever. I wonder what his scale size is.

    Is that walker the AT-PT from the Thrawn Trilogy?! Sure looks like it...

    Well, it looks like I'm done with the 3 3/4" figures for a while. None of these (not even the highly-demanded Toryn Farr) interest me. Fortunately, the 6" Black figures are still looking good.
    I was hoping that we would get some sort of big reveal concerning some unannounced figures though. The ones shown had all already been somewhat confirmed prior to Toy Fair. But still, I'm very excited about Chewie and Darth Vader.

    EDIT: Stupid me I guess Jabba was our big surprise. I'm appreciative that Hasbro is making a point to add some diversity to the 6" Black series with the seemingly HUGE Jabba, but oddly enough, I'm just not very excited about him. Maybe I'll change my mind when I see him in person.

    Updated with descriptions. Sorry for the delay, getting these up across our sites is time consuming and exhausting.

    Thanks everyone.

    Black series 6 inch Vader looks good. Hopefully the mask all assembled can pull off the look.

    man.. for most of their lines hasbro has stuck up a big middle figure and yelled a loud F YOU to fans/collectors. oh well.. they'll lose money, i'll save money.

  8. Startaiger has no avatar! Startaiger says

    Oh my GOD!!! That 6" Biker Scout & Speeder Bike!!! It's absolutely awesome!! I want it like ..RKGHT NOW!!! Gotta have at least 2 or 3 of these.
    6" Vader doesn't look bad too... Wish they put another one on display with his helmet on.

    Some people take things way too personally.

    To add to my comment in the other thread, I definitely want BS 6" Vader, Jedi Luke and Chewy. I also want that Scout/Bike set and Jabba, but both will have to wait until I get a better idea of price/size.

    Pass on pretty much everything else. None of the other new stuff there that really interests me.

    I love the beveled bucket heads of the R5 series more than the domes of the R2 series; and since red is my favorite color, I'm afraid I have no say in what happens next.

    Really liking the Dagobah Luke and Yoda....but I really can't believe we are getting yet another shelf warming Vader, Hoth Luke and Snowtrooper. Were is ANH Leia? Seriously getting tired of waiting for a good version of Leia in her iconic white gown and buns.

    I'm excited to see the inclusion of a repainted Sandtrooper in Wave 5 of the 6" Black Series. I snagged the original from Wave 1 when he was in stores, so this one is most likely a pass for me, but it's great to see that Hasbro is willing to bring back figures from earlier waves. It's definitely a good sign that hard-to-find figures, like the elusive Boba Fett, will, at some point, be available again for those who were not able to find them initially.

    Yeah, my question on the Vader is what makes him unique to Ep. III? I mean it's true I don't have a "definitive" Vader for my Ep. III shelves but is there anything that sources him directly to the film that's significantly different from, say, the Ep. V Vader we got in Wave 1 other than the gun/blaster gimmick? I actually like the Snowtrooper because it's the officer version seen with the AT-AT Driver and General Veers in a close-up shot in the movie. So that one I get. I also like the new Hoth Luke because, with the Wampa "battle damage," he should go nicely with that older deluxe Wampa w/playsets that came out a while back. And I wholeheartedly agree...we desperately need a definitive Leia from A New Hope!

    My definitive Leia would be Hoth or Bespin (white jumpsuit).

  15. darthschroeder's Avatar darthschroeder says

    We really do. I think she is the only main character from ANH that has never gotten a super articulated figure. There have been ones that came close, but they had those terrible swivel elbow joints.
    And I agree that the Hoth and Bespin outfits are great, but they have both gotten action figures recently, and they are not nearly as iconic as the white gown and buns. I mean, how many cosplayers have you seen decked out in Leia's thick coat from Hoth?
