For the past day or so, people that placed orders for The Black Series 40 Anniversary 6" figures over the past weekend have been receiving their shipments from HasbroToyShop.com.
I just received mine today as well and they were packed as expected from HasbroToyShop. They were just thrown into a box without any type of packing or padding material what so ever. Luckily though my set arrived undamaged.
In this installment of The Star Wars Show, we reveal first details on the in-home release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, announce a special Star Wars Celebration Orlando panel, we visit New York Toy Fair 2017 to check out some awesome new Star Wars toys, chat with toy hunter Jordan Hemrough, and much more!
"Experience Rogue One: A Star Wars Story again -- and go behind the scenes with a galaxy of bonus features -- when the thrilling tale of rebellion comes home on Digital HD (March 24) and Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand (April 4)."
There will also be 3 exclusives offered by Target, Walmart, and Best Buy that vary from Packaging to Bonus Features. For more info check out StarWars.com.
"Cameras are rolling on the adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee; principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20 at Pinewood Studios, London.
The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian".
A few people emailed us stating that Hasbro is cancelling their orders for The Black Series 40th Anniversary 6" figures that were available on Saturday.
I decided to reach out to HasbroToyShop.com and they stated that they are in the process of cancelling orders for those that placed multiple orders of the same figures (or if your credit card was declined).
Per HasbroToyShop.com, "As these are exclusive (they are not exclusive BTW) items there is a strict 1 per household limit. Your first order will ship. The duplicate orders even though authorized will be canceled and the charge will be taken off any credit card used".
So if you needed more then one of each figure, you will have to wait and preorder them from a online retailer or wait to find them at a Brick and Mortar store. Don't give into the scalpers on Ebay, these should be just about everywhere in March / April.
In this installment of Rebels Recon, we take a look at the Star Wars Rebels episode "Legacy of Mandalore," in which Sabine returns home to Krownest, looking to recruit her mother and Clan Wren to the rebel cause. Host Andi Gutierrez sits down to discuss the episode with the show's creators and stars, including Dave Filoni, Pablo Hidalgo, Tiya Sircar, Henry Gilroy, and more.
HasbroToyShop.com now lists the first wave of The Black Series 6" Carded figures as "in stock". The first wave consists of Han, Luke, Leia, R2, and Obi-Wan. Price is $19.99 each with a limit of 1 of each figure per order.
As of this post, Amazon is taking orders on 5 of the 6 figures from The Black Series Wave 9 if your still in need of them. Revan is sold out as expected. Figures are sold and shipped by Amazon. Prices range from $11.08 to $23.75 per figure and the ship dates are different on some of the figures.

In this installment of The Star Wars Show, we have a major Star Wars: The Last Jedi announcement for Star Wars Celebration Orlando, Dhruv Chanchani (a.k.a. Kitster from The Phantom Menace) sits for a chat, we visit Sideshow Collectibles for a look at their stunning figures, and much more!
Still dialing in my new camera, but managed to get some photos finished of The Black Series 6" 37: Baze Malbus figure. The sculpt looks great and has plenty of articulation. He includes a Heavy Repeating Cannon and a Taser. Please enjoy our new HD Photos!
The Black Series 6" 34: Darth Revan figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. Personally think this is one awesome looking figure. Revan is super articulated as expected and includes 2 Lightsabers.
Unfortunately these have yet to hit Brick and Mortar Stores in large numbers. The only retail stores it has trickled into so far is GameStop and ThinkGeek. If your looking for this figure your best bet is online stores like our sponsors.
Just finished photographing The Black Series 6" 33: Sabine Wren figure and have added her to our HD Photo Gallery today. This includes Box, loose, and variations.
These photos are from my new camera which I think look pretty awesome. Also since I have a lot more pixels to work with, I will be increasing our HD Photos size by about 40% over our previously photos, which were already impressive. Enjoy!
After a much needed break from photography for the past few months (been doing this since 1995) I am refreshed and ready to get back into it. I have decided to also retired my 10 year old digital camera that to this day produced some of the highest quality photos out there and bought a new camera and lenses.
I am in the process of creating all new digital filters and tools for my new camera, to process these new photos. This new camera produces some amazing high detailed photos and has allowed me to increase our already large photos by about 40% with even better detail that I was able to get with my old camera.
Also I will be working on restoring our older HD Photo Galleries, which was corrupted by a catastrophic Server failure a while back.
