This past weekend, thousands of Star Wars collectors raced scalpers to Gamestop stores across the country in a mad dash for the newest wave of Star Wars Black Series 6″ figures. But for the 90% of fans who came up short, fear not–the all-new Star Wars Black Series 6″ six-figure wave is now up for order online, including Black Series Darth Revan, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia and more!
Darth Revan won the Hasbro Fan’s Choice Poll in Summer 2015, with Rebels’ Sabine Wren placing as the runner-up in the poll. It’s been a long, hard wait for diehard fans of these two non-movie characters, but the wait has finally come to an end–the Star Wars Black Series Sabine Wren and Darth Revan assortment finally began shipping to stores in the United States over the weekend, and online stores are now able to take orders to be fulfilled in the next week or two as well!
This assortment has almost unquestionably the single best ratios we’ve seen all year long, so i foresee plenty of people just ordering the full case and skipping out on hunting for this wave in stores entirely.
- Darth Revan (Knights of the Old Republic)
- Sabine Wren (Star Wars Rebels)
- Obi-Wan Kenobi (A New Hope)
- Princess Leia Organa (A New Hope)
- AT-AT Driver (Empire Strikes Back)
- Snowtrooper (Empire Strikes Back)
The Obi-Wan Kenobi figure was previously released with additional accessories for San Diego Comic-Con 2016 as an exclusive in July, but all five of the other figures in this series have never been released before in the 6″ scale, so this is going to be one hot wave where I wouldn’t be surprised to see the whole set getting scooped out of stores in one fell swoop, leaving nothing for the second collector who comes by.
The Star Wars Black Series 2016 Wave 5 figures are now up for order in cases (and some individuals) online, and are scheduled to be officially released and shipped out in the next one to two weeks. EE is offering free shipping on the full case and tends to receive their figures before other online retailers, whereas BBTS has slightly lower prices but you’ll have to pay for shipping on your own. I opt for EE personally, but your preferences may vary.
Now that the final Black Series 2016 wave is finally hitting stores, which figures are you going on the hunt for, Star Wars collectors? Are you planning to go out on patrol to pick-and-choose your favorites, order the full assortment online, or pass over this hotly-anticipated wave of figures altogether?
