The Black Series: #11 Chewbacca

The 2015 Black Series #11 Chewbacca figure looks amazing! Hasbro did a great job on the sculpt and gave him plenty of articulation. In my opinion this has to be one of the best Chewbacca figures to date. If I had to complain about one thing its that his Bandolier is not removable, but thats not really a big deal to me personally. Chewy is packed with his trademark Bowcaster.

Enjoy the new HD Pictures!

The Black Series 3.75" Wave 7 Card Front Preview

Just got a case of The Black Series 3.75" Wave 7 figures and as a preview I have uploaded some card front photos to our Facebook Page.

There are 8 new figures in this wave. The Stormtrooper #08 is technically a repack, but Hasbro has updated its paint apps. Also for the variant hunters out there, Hasbro made a error on the Stormtrooper insert and card back as the figure number is printed as #15 and not #08. To remedy this, they placed #08 stickers over the printed #15 text on the insert and card
