Star Wars Black Series is all over the place right now with late waves, store exclusives and hard to find figures. Today we are taking a look at some of the exclusives floating around. Admiral Piett is an online exclusive, available at several stores including site sponsor Entertainment Earth. General Veers uses his same base body but adds ground assault gear to rep his Empire Hoth attack look, and he’s exclusive to Walgreens. The Gamorrean Guard came out a bit ago, and is a Target exclusive. There is also a Mimban Trooper exclusive to Wal Mart and Bespin Escape Leia over at Target (which we will look at later, in progress). And that’s just what’s relatively new, there were several other exclusives earlier in the year, including cancelled TRU ones that half leaked out. Couple this with a new Solo Wave that is out, but not even online for Pre-Order and tons of shown but not solicited items at Toy Fair and SDCC, and woofa. It’s the wild west out here.
We are going to try and run some catch up here with a look at Piett, Veers and the Gamorrean Guard. All 3 are OT and well done, worthy of a pick up. While the Imperial ranked officers make sense to litter around as exclusives, the Guard being exclusive is crazy, especially since he’s a troop builder. And awesome. Great paint, fur that doesn’t suck, accessories – it’s a winner. Hopefully he gets a modified but wider release later.
Read on to check out all 3 after the break courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
