Excellent point. Many people bought VOTC, VTSC and so on just because of the wonderful vintage packaging. I'm sure that would definitely be a big draw if they brought it back.


I've always hated the dreadful Black Series packaging. And, though I've always been an opener, it's even more disheartening that when we do finally get (at least SOME) of The Force Awakens figures in 3.75 SA, it'll be in this crappy, crappy packages, instead of the stunningly gorgeous packing that the 5POA line currently boasts.

PLEASE CHANGE THE HORRID BLACK SERIES PACKAGING! (Heck, please rename the 3.75 black series into something else, to avoid confusion with the 6 inchers.)

I agree, they actually should have never branded them under the same name, or expanded TBS to include the Titaniums,etc. It just adds confusion to everything, especially during Q&A sessions...

Saw the TBS Wave One at Walmart today. Didn't snap a pic because I somehow forgot my phone.

But, still cool seeing the new packaging. Luke looked great. Chewbacca, not bad, even though a repack.. Vader... ugh. Why did they have to pick such a bad version of him...

Anyways, it sounds like this first wave will be short produced, which is good. And the next ones will be in higher production, and also available on www.walmart.com

Wait, was Kylo Ren in that wave or was it still just older figures?

What is the breakdown of Wave 1?

And Wave 2 is only the FO Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren.

Wasn't there a press release saying Poe, Rey, Finn, and ANH Leia would be the next set available? I feel as if I'm missing one, because I thought there were 10 total figures "this Fall" or something...

I thought that Leia is supposed to be in Wave 2. Here's what they look like:

That does make sense, then there would be 3 figures per wave. I've not made any type of comparisons, but I read that someone said these were all the 6 inch sculpts just shrunk down. Considering the Trooper, Kylo, Finn, Rey, and Poe are all in the bigger line, I wonder if we can anticipate Phasma, the Constable, and the DeadPool looking guy in the 3.75 line as well. I know I'd really like to have an articulated Phasma for sure!

I'm assuming wave 3 will be Han(E6), Rey, Finn, and Poe. That's 4, but I can't see them having a 4th wave before Christmas with just 1 new figure in it.

I'm interested to know how These are packed. Are they packed just 3 per case (each figure 1x) or are there solid cases? Chewie, how many figures did you see total?

I'd assume These could be packed in cases of 6, each 2x. If they're only packed three per case, then maybe there is a wave 4 and wave 3 will have some repacks, which as Long as they aren't from wave 1, then that would be ok. I could see the do wave 3 with 2x new TFA character, 2x Han, 1x Kylo, and 1x Stormtrooper. Then wave 6 would be 2x new TFA, 2x other new TFA, then 2 others (hopefully 2x the stormtrooper again.

Online it Looks like you can just order Singles, which is fine, but it would be nice to know how the stores will received these.

I'm happy to get some SA 3.75" TFA characters, but only 5 new figures this fall, is still too few SA 3.75". I really hope the 3.75" SA figures hit more heavily in the spring then.

I have mixed feelings about the SA exclusive line, considering the price is staying high and the character selection may be a lot of repeats from the 5 POA line. For example, I think the 5 POA Finn figure is good as-is, if Hasbro takes that sculpt and adds more articulation, do I really need it? Its a bit of a dilemma for my future SA purchases.

I know what you mean... my take though, is if they make an SA Finn, I'm going to want both him and Poe with that Resistance jacket, and probably make a few custom troops/officers wearing it as well.

The 5POA figures are a better than I expected for this film so far, but definitely fall short of what I'm wanting long-term.

And we'll have 2012 all over again when they had TVC and Movie Heroes having Maul, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gons, etc. in both lines.
