edit: wait... they STILL haven't corrected Jedi Luke's hair?!?  Come on, spend a little money there, Hasbro.

That's great that they have something, but those figures are giving me sore eyes all on their own.  :speechless-smiley-004:

The first wave of the new STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line is currently available for purchase on Walmart.com and features EPISODE VI DARTH VADER, EPISODE VI LUKE SKYWALKER, and EPISODE IV CHEWBACCA. The second wave, featuring a brand new EPISODE IV PRINCESS LEIA figure and the first two figures based on STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (FIRST ORDER STORMTROOPER and KYLO REN), are available to pre-order now on Walmart.com. Both waves will be available in stores in the next few months.  Additional 3 ¾-inch figures will be coming later in 2015.

Later in 2015?  Just how much later can it get once you get past "next few months"? lol...   Obviously that Leia is the Ceremony Leia we were promised, maybe she won't look like Anne Hathaway when she's finally released.

So we'll finally get our 3-3/4'' SA figures!! YES!!

And don't worry. Pretty sure Walmart Canada will get these a plenty. The pegs are ready for these. The packaging is quadrilingual. There is not way these do not make it here. Even in Quebec. You'll see.  :)` :D

And the fact that we get repacks for the OT, I couldn't care less for now. All I really want are those TFA SA 3-3/4'' figures. :)

Head over to JediInsider... they have pics of the Ceremony Leia in the new packaging and more importantly the FO Stormtrooper in his SA goodness (yet sadly I'll admit that the 5POA version is better sculpted... something about the helmet on the SA version looks off)

Having a hard time finding out whether or not the OT figures (other than Ceremony Leia) are repacks/repaints/kitbashes or all new. Anyone seen anything? I may have asked this before... sorry if that's the case.....  :speechless-smiley-004:

Well the first wave are repacks (TVC Jedi Luke, Chewie, and a very old sculpt Vader).

Paul at JTA recently had a conversation with a Hasbro rep and got this response to your question,


"I developed a strong conversation surrounding The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75” Walmart exclusive line. Fortunately, Hasbro’s designer Steve was able to join in on the conversation. (More on this soon.) Just like The Force Awakens line, not all of the TBS3.75 figures made it out. We should be seeing more of wave 1 shortly as well. Wave 2 will go up for pre-order sometime this month, but likely won’t hit Walmart brick and mortar until November. Hasbro explained that all of the Original Trilogy figures released in this line will be repacks. There will be NO NEW Original Trilogy figures. (The same is true for Prequel Trilogy figures.) The focus is on The Force Awakens right now and any slots for OT will be figure we have already seen at an earlier time (save for the delayed Princess Leia)."  - Paul H. @ JTA

I am not sure if this is good or bad news.   I was on Amazon.com and found they had all the figures from the last 2 SA 3/ 3/4" waves that I wanted.  Shipping was not that much and if you have a problem amazon will take care of you so I bit decided to buy them.  Some I purchased from amazon it self and 2 others from resellers that were being fulfilled by amazon.  When I got the package the interesting thing was the packaging from the resellers.   

It was all blank on the back except for a little blurb at the top talking about the characters then the whole middle section was blank except for the picture of the character and then at the bottom was the Hasbro Quebec address.   No multi language writing.

So this is either good news we are getting these waves or it is bad news that they are being dumped to other resellers instead of making there way to the Canadian market.

I hope I am the bearer of good news but these were American resellers with these cards that were at one point destined for Canada.

You mean the Mossep Bineed & Leia Boushh waves? I got a few through Amazon as well, but they had the full US packaging (which looked like it had been run over by a tank - but I digress as the figures inside were perfectly ok). I'm wondering if those were ones where a sticker was going to be applied before they got to market - but someone decided not to bother since they were never going to get there. Very interesting anyhow.

Purchased SA Chewie at WalMart. I didn't want to, but I was powerless when I beheld his true awesomeness in person - SO disappointed I spent the same amount of money on that latest Black Series version with the dopey looking new head when I see the two side by side.  :speechless-smiley-004:
