Title: 40th Anniversary Black Series Wave 2
Post by: GlitchBob007 on June 15, 2017, 08:29:20 PM
Here's my two cents on each of the 6 figures from wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Black Series Line:

Stormtrooper - nothing significant here, painted ever so slightly differently from the original. Good to have another chance at these guys.

Chewbacca - either intentionally or not, the paint on this one is a little bit different than the original. This one looks just a bit better, in my opinion.

C-3PO - straight repack of the EB exclusive, nothing new with this one

Jawa - great figure, looks awesome. The only issue I've found is that the cloth robe hinders the leg and knee movement.

Death Squad Commander - this figure looks fantastic. Hasbro nailed this one.

Sand People - another amazing figure. The alternate pieces for the Gaffi stick add some nice variety and the cloth robe works pretty well.

So, 3 easy passes for those who've been collecting for a while, and 3 brand new figures that are all pretty great.

I have yet to open any of these (will only be opening the ones that are making their debut) but I have to admit the carded figures look really nice. I initially thought they should have gone with a vintage inspired box to keep the box packaging for 6" but now that I've got them in person there's just nothing like the pure vintage carded look.

Now if only they could do a vintage collection 3.75" R2 on a SW card.

I love the big vintage cards, though the only one that has forced me to spend money so far is R2. If they do the same thing for the ESB anniversary in 3 years, I will be powerless to resist.

Yep! EB, TRU, and Walmart have all had them so far.
