The Black Series has gone deluxe! Larger scale figures and accessories are coming, kicking off with Wave 1′s Biker Scout and Jabba The Hutt (non SDCC version). The Biker Scout is a standard Black Series 6 inch scale figure and comes packaged with an in-scale Speeder Bike as seen in Return of the Jedi. A stand comes-with, so you can pose the figure on-bike for some dynamic shots. We’ve shot it up and done up some thoughts, check out over 35 shots courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Thanks to forum member TheBigMachine, we have word of some new Star Wars Black Series 6″ Figures coming next year. Dorkside Toys has posted pre-order listings for the following 6″ figures:
- Clone Commander Cody
- Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
No word, at this time, of the Obi-Wan is a repack of the previously released figure or an all-new version. Perhaps it could be an Alec Guinness version! We’ll have more as it becomes available. These are listed for a first quarter 2015 release. No images are yet available.
Toyark forum member Kernel has purchased the Marvel Legends Infinite Series Agent Venom at his local Walgreens. The Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Agent Venom figure has officially begun to hit store shelves. The figure is priced at $19.99. It is currently sold out online.
Marvel Legends Infinite Series Agent Venom Figure
With his wall-crawling super-powers, Spider-Man is usually too much for any villain to handle. But this is one terrifying villain! Your Agent Venom figure is dressed in his signature black suit, with a helmet and tentacles that make him extra tough to beat. Send him into battle against the forces of justice and see what happens!
No news yet on the Black Series 6″ Prototype Armor Boba Fett. Start checking your local Walgreens stores for Venom. Happy hunting!
SDCC is where Black Series launched in 2013 with the Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite set. Over the last year, we’ve seen a solid line up of figures from all eras of Star Wars with more to come. To set off “year 2″ – we get another SDCC exclusive, Jabba the Hutt and his Throne Room. This is a hyped up version of the soon to be released “Deluxe” series figure.
The set comes with Jabba the Hutt, Salacious B. Crumb, a hooka pipe/stand, and a railing. On top of all that, the box itself is a cardboard diorama of Jabba’s throne room from Return of the Jedi featuring artwork to mimic his platform and even a cardboard Han Solo in Carbonite. You can swap out the cardboard Han with the one from Boba’s 2013 set and hang him there instead (see the pics inside).
We’ve done up over 55 pics of the set in high resolution for you, check them out along with our thoughts after the break!

The Star Wars Black Series Wave 4 galleries continue today with #14 Clone Trooper! Packed in the case along with Ep 3 Anakin Skywalker, Wave 4 gives us 2 solid Prequel characters. The clone trooper has the ability to be repainted over and over, and Hasbro has already started that process :). Read on to check out some high res pics and some quick thoughts, courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
Check back later in the week for our shoot of SDCC Jabba!
Star Wars Black Series from Hasbro is a favorite here at Toyark, and Wave 4 is in hand and ready for action. This wave features 2 new figures and 2 re-packs: Ep 3 Anakin Skywalker, a Clone Trooper, a Storm Trooper and Boba Fett. Finally a re-up of figures that makes sense since one is a troop builder and one is still a bit hard to find. We are starting things off with #12 Anakin Skywalker today, read on to check out some high res pics and some quick thoughts, courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
Marvel Legends continues the movie specific releases with this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy! Earlier this year, there were Spider-Man 2 and Captain America waves to compliment the movies, and next up is GotG. The wave features the core characters – Star Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot as the Build A Figure. Filling out the wave are comic versions of Iron Man and Nova. Each case comes with an extra Iron Man and Star Lord, so those should be filling the pegs soon enough. We’ve done up a high res photo shoot of the whole wave for you, check out the images and our thoughts after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
Hasbro is known for sending out kick ass promotional boxes for their properties with big movies about to drop, and Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel is next up on that list! The box contains items already in stores related to the movie, including Marvel Legends Star Lord, 2.5 inch Drax and Korath, Big Blastin Rocket Raccoon, the Milano Starship, and Role Play Star Lord Quad Blaster and Rocket Action Mask. But, these go out to press not focused on collectors as well, so it’s a nice spread for those not familiar with the line.
There is definitely some fun stuff for the kids in here, and the Marvel Legends stuff is top notch as we saw during our photo shoot back in June. Check out official images and product descriptions for the first waves available now via our post from Toy Fair 2014. We’d like to thank the Hasbro PR team for hooking us up, make sure to check the GotG stuff in stores now!
