6" The Black Series Anakin Skywalker Figures Not Slated For The First Wave Of 2014
Jay Cochran - October 31, 2013


Yesterday, we showed you some new official images for Hasbro's third wave of 6" The Black Series figures which has been dubbed by Hasbro as the first wave of 2014. The images showed figures for Bespin Luke Skywalker (ESB), Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ep III), and a Stormtrooper (Ep IV).

Earlier in the month during the NYCC, Hasbro released an official image for another as-of-yet unannounced 6" figure in the form of Anakin Skywalker (Ep III). It was originally thought that Anakin would be the fourth figure released in wave 3 since there had only been three figures announced for that wave while the previous two waves had four figures in them. It turns out that is not the case. Hasbro has confirmed for us that Anakin will be released in a later wave and will not be included in wave 3.

During the NYCC we were told that the decision to go from four figures in a wave to three was to give Hasbro some flexibility to re-release figures that maybe didn't see a huge release the first time around.

So just to be clear, wave 3 or the first wave of 2014 will include the following:

- Bespin Luke Skywalker (ESB)
- Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ep III)
- Stormtrooper (Ep IV)


And Anakin Skywalker (shown below) will be released in a subsequent wave, our guess wave 4.

December date really doesn't matter, the Lord of the Rings movies were each released in December and it didn't affect matters one bit. I was in college at the time and it was fun for us to go see it at that time. When the semester ended before we left for home we met at the dorm and left in ... read more

It depends the release date Abrams is pushing for and the scheduled release for the merchandise, since most of the time the merchandise comes out about a month, month and a half before the movie. Either way this movie will be the year's highest grosser regardless the date it's released.

I'm kind of surprised we did not see any Force Awakens stuff but then again not surprised that they want to keep that under wraps until the last minute. I hear Abrams is pushing for an earlier release. I wonder what that would do to the all-important merchandising....?

Oh yeah I forgot they are making the Force Awakens figures, oh well one day we'll get to the Expanded Universe.

I can see maybe 10 of those figures being made, lol. maybe after TFA hits, next year they can focus on smaller characters, but for now, it'll have to be key characters with a few army builders/favorites sprinkled in.

Its ok by the time they get to those figures(if they do) they'll probably be on their 10th Han Solo and 15th Luke and a Clone trooper with Hello Kitty deco, which means you'll probably be done by then.
