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.

Yeah, the others are going to be available wherever the Black figures are sold. Speaking of which, I have a question that I was wondering if anyone could help me out with... I recently got the Anakin and Clone Trooper figures and noticed something strange about their numbering. As everyo... read more

I already hit a few Walgreens today and nothing exclusive except the Game of Thrones dwarf. Would have been great if these hit two and a half months ago when I was in Puerto Rico where you see a Walgreens every half mile. Chewie, Vader, and Luke will also be at other stores eventually, right? T... read more

This is the kind of stuff that really pisses me off! I have had the Boba Fett pre-ordered from Walgreens for over a month now, and have had this series of Black figures pre-ordered from Entertainment Earth even longer, and they are BOTH all over eBay and I haven't gotten a darn thing!... read more
