Collected News: June 10 – 16, 2013

Each week I’ll take a look at what toy (and related) news have been announced and share what news I’m most excited about!

Star Wars The Black Series 6″ Action Figures Waves 2 & 3

On January 29th 2013, USA Today’s article had confirmed Hasbro’s new Star Wars The Black Series 6″ line that will feature the following characters in wave 1: Luke Skywalker in X-Wing Pilot gear, Darth Maul, R2-D2 and a Sandtrooper. Plus, on May 3rd, a Boba Fett 6″ Figure with Han Solo in carbonite was announced as one of Hasbro’s SDCC 2013 exclusives.

On June 10th 2013, flyguy.net announced the following action figures that will be appearing in waves 2 & 3 if the Star Wars The Black Series (to be released later in 2013):

  • Star Wars Episode 3 Anakin Skywalker 6″ Action Figure
  • Star Wars Episode 3 Obi Wan Kenobi 6″ Action Figure
  • Star Wars Episode 4 Greedo 6″ Action Figure
  • Star Wars Episode 5 Luke Bespin 6″ Action Figure
  • Star Wars Boba Fett 6″ Action Figure
  • Star Wars Slave Leia 6″ Action Figure
  • Star Wars Episode 4 Han Solo 6″ Action Figure
  • Star Wars Episode 4 Stormtrooper 6″ Action Figure

From the list above, I’m excited to see how the Luke, Han and Leia figures will turn out. I’m hoping that the single Boba Fett figure has other differences from the 2013 SDCC exclusive version (other than not having the Han in carbonite add-on). No product images available for waves 2 & 3 as of this writing, but I will post images once made available.

That’s it for this week, friends! Have a good week!
