Recent Finds/Acquisitions: The Black Series

Postby YAK_Chewie » Tue Jun 18, 2013 10:42 am

Since some of us placed some preorders for these already, and these will be hopefully showing up in stores in late July/early August... this is the place to post those finds!

Looking forward to seeing the finds from other collectors. I live in Maine, so late July early August usually means September at the earliest!

I'm still waiting on my Luke/Biggs preorder from TRU, but I did get TSC Hem Dazon off eBay. Awesome looking cantina alien, the joints are dated, but I don't see hasbro revisiting this guy anytime again.

I can't believe they are reissuing that awful biker scout, the paint and joints are terrible.

Still no Black Series in the Twin Cities, but I did pick up The Rise Of Darth Vader battle pack. Pretty cool for a bunch of repacks; I didn't have the "light up" Darth Vader or the TVC Emperor, so why not. Two vintage style figures and an old ROTS figure and accessory with the "light up" Vader that I never saw on a shelf. They also had all the new Saga and Mission Series figures, and I have to admit that these are growing on me. They look pretty darn good, but of course they are very simple. I do get a strong twinge of childhood nostalgia for the 70's and 80's looking at these; I might just stick with OT figures. Anyway, can't wait for the Black Series! New stuff!

That pic is a perfect illulstration of why I think I'm sick of X-Wing pilots... Hasbro keeps changing the shade or orange!

Nice custom rebel there though using the Cracken body; I like that.

I came across a case of Black Series at TRU today (and Mission Series).

I picked up Padme, Luke and the green clone (almost bought the pilot instead, but went with green). Can't believe Biggs is packed 2X per case. And carried forward in Wave 2. Lame.

Which TRU was that? I hit one in S. StL last week... off of 270. No luck.

This was the Sunset Hills TRU, right off Hwy 44 and Watson.

I also hit the South County TRU (Hwy 55 and S. Lindbergh) on my way home as I really wanted a second Padme... and SCORE! They had a case there too. The only figure missing was Luke.

So, I ended up today with the following:

Luke x 1
Padme x 2
Green Clone x 1

Eventually, I will probably grab a couple clone pilots, then I'll be done with this wave. It really is a lousy wave in my opinion. Hard to believe that Hasbro thought this was a good assortment to launch a new line.

had to go to Target since TRU was sold out already, but I got the Clone Pilot, Biker Scout, Clone Sgt and Anakin

I had to look at the Clone Sgt a few times
the green is so dark at first glance I thought it was black against the black card back

these new cards rhyme with "duck"

I hope they have a very short life

So far no signs of the new 3.75" Black Series figures in my area, but I'm keeping my eyes peeled and might make a couple of store runs sometime tomorrow.
