JediDefender.com has posted a list of upcoming Star Wars products that supposed originated from the Hasbro Customer Service website. Man, it’s been ages since I posted a rumored list!
There are products from a number of lines, but the most relevant for our (well, my) purposes are the Star Wars Black 6″ items:
- SW 6″ EP 4 CHEWBACCA
- SW 6″ TIE PILOT
- SW 6″ EP 5 C-3P0
- SW 6″ EP II CLONE TROOPER
- SW 6″ EP 5 DARTH VADER
- SW 6″ EP 6 LUKE JEDI
- SW 6″ JAWAS
- SW 6″ SANDTROOPERS (Multiple Listings)
- SW BLACK SERIES 6INCH DELUXE AST (?)
- SW BLACK SERIES 6INCH JABBA THE HUTT
- SW BLACK SERIES 6INCH SPEEDER BIKE
This list seems way too wishlist-y to me – Chewbacca, C-3P0, Darth Vader and Jedi Luke would nearly knock off all my remaining must-haves for this line. On the other hand, the line has already given us Boba Fett, Darth Maul and Ep. 4 Han. I’m beginning to wonder about Hasbro’s plans for SWB6″…they’re really not holding anything back. No Martian Manhunters or Ram Mans here. Maybe they’re just going to knock out the obvious must-have characters by 2015 and then put the line away for a few years while they focus on the new films in 3.75″?
But getting back to the list…what does “deluxe assortment” mean…? Also: freaking Jabba?! If this list proves accurate, we’d all better start saving up now.
PGPoA’s Star Wars Black Week starts this Monday, folks. Five straight days of Poe-penned SWB reviews. And three of them are already written, so there won’t be any last-minute cancellations.
(A tip of the hat to Poester RC for the heads-up on the list.)
