Funko is opening the vault for one of the higher prices POP's to hit the secondary market and you have a second chance in getting one. If you passed on Greedo last time, do not wait this time. He has already sold through most wholesale outlets and Funko DID say he is limited so if you see one grab him before he is gone! He will sport a new box so if you have one, do not worry, he should hold his value. Look for more Star Wars POP's to be brought back from the vault soon!
Well, this is it, the last figure from wave 2 of the ever popular Black series 6" figures. I must admit and I said I would eat crow......I really like this figure! In fact I will go on record and say this is my favorite out of the bunch. I know the color is not quite right but still, Hasbro gave us an excellent Greedo 6" figure. I personally like the color and the sculpt is spot on. Unlike other Star Wars purists, I am very pleased with what we got here. I know Greedo could have been better but to me, he is just fine. I guess I really got a thrill out of the weathering done to his cloths and once again, look at that crisp detail! The head sculpt is nice and one of the best so far. Now that is saying something as all the figures from both waves look really good. Maybe it's the articulation he sports? I know compared to Boba he has more range in his articulation due to not having anything blocking that articulation. Bottom line is this, if you see poor Greedo do yourself a favor and pick him up. I can tell Hasbro has put in a ton of heart in these figures and I for one love it. My rating is a 5 out of 5! Now I will go hide as I am sure the interwebs will slowly implode due that statement. Keep up the great work Hasbro!
Starting tomorrow night we will start to break down the latest release from Hasbro; Star Wars Black 6″ figures! We received our samples from Big Bad Toy Store and we are excited to show them off. First glance, they look incredible! I assure you the winner out of this batch will surprise you….it surprised myself.
So you purchased the inaugural wave of the Star Wars Black 6" series AND you scored the SDCC Boba Fett, what now? As far as retail goes I am seeing very little left for the 6" series. I am assuming sales have been brisk and fan excitement is high for this line. Some might be wondering when the next wave is due and I can answer that for you! Coming this November we will get: Slave Leia Han Solo Greedo Boba Fett
Well..was the wait worth it? I dig the concept of this series but I am not sold on this figure. I guess I was expecting more with the simple fact it took this long to premier it. It kills me though, Hasbro has potential with this line and I know this line is aimed at collectors. The character selection gets me big time. Why Greedo and not a Cody or a Darth Vader? Man, if I could choose my top 5 figs I can assure you Greedo would not be in it. Still, fans will eat him up and with all my bellyaching, I will buy him as well. I just hope Hasbro realizes the potential that the Black series offers and get us some hard-core fan favs before this line is shelved (hoping for an ultimate Luke Jedi!).
