Star Wars Black 6 inch General Discussion

I've posted pics from the booth as well as official pics. Check out Bossk's articulated jaw and the Tauntaun's opening belly.

The old thread was at 200 pages, figured it was a perfect time for a reboot.

My internet company decided to dig up and replace all their wiring this weekend, so this is the first time I've seen pics on a screen larger than 5". Was it stupid of me to expect for the Tauntaun to have more articulation? It's a buy anyway, but I am a bit disappointed. Thankfully outside of that and the previously announced BS6 waves, it's a cheap Star Wars SDCC for me.

Bossk is my cutoff for obscure characters. He looks great, but I know if bought him my Star Wars collection would expand to places I don't want it to be.

Sexay! Black Series is lookng better and better.

Love the TIE Pilot and Bossk especially. And the Han w/ Tauntaun and Luke w/ Wampa are awesome.

Not sure if I'll pick up the Shadow Stormtrooper or Shadow Biker Scout w/Bike. But they look keen.

The Tauntaun has a slit on it's underside like the vintage figure doesn't it? That's probably the reason for the lack or articulation

Want that Bossk now, pls. I'm mainly into this line for Imperial nasties and funky alien bounty hunters, so he's way up on the list. IG-88 too please!

If I can find it, and make space on my shelves, I may be needing that Wampa too. Tauntaun is already bought...

That Wampa is amazing. I need it.
Also, I saw "General" and thought Grievous. I was very disappointed.

TIE Pilot, Stormtrooper Han, Clone Sergeant and Emperor are musts for me, so is the Hoth Han set. I'm on the fence about the Luke with Wampa because I don't know I have enough room for them. I'm already planning on getting the Tauntaun set. Though it does look great.

And in case I can't find the regular Clone Trooper, I plan on getting this one. Don't know which one I really prefer more, but I'd like to have at least one of them. After seeing pictures of it loose and posed I think it looks pretty good.

The Taun Taun looks sweet. $39.99 isnt so bad, because the last Taun Taun was like 25 bucks at Target and this one is bigger and comes with Han.

Hoth stuff was never my favorite, but I'm in for both sets. Hell, I'm in for everything OT in general. Looking forward to the hate Emperor will get for having cloth robes. Looking forward to building an army of Han Solo Stormtroopers. Looking forward to a Threepio eventually, disappointed there was none. Was there any video demonstrating Bossk's articulated face?

As long as the Emperor has a plastic hood, it could be ok.

Disappointed to hear the Emperor will have soft goods, the last good Palpatine figure was for POTF2 in 1996.

Outside of that, AWESOME!

Not unhappy by a single choice. The only other complaint is that this expensive line just got a lot more expensive. Not sure if I want the Target set, but I'll wait until I see it in person. That mostly works because I hardly go to Target anymore and they rarely have their own exclusives around here. >_>

It's kind of surprising to get a Clone Officer so soon, but pretty happy that it's the Sergeant. Now I just need a Jango Fett to be made to get his jetpack so I can customize a Sergeant into a Battlefront 1 jetpack trooper, at least his rifle already came with the Sandtrooper.
