Hasbro revealed the first wave at NYC Comic-Con this weekend. In addition to the four shown, there will also be a new Gamorrean Guard (from ROTJ), Han in Stormtrooper armor (from the first movie), a new Clone Trooper (either from Episode III or from the Clone Wars animated series), and Luke Skywalker (Crait) from The Last Jedi.
Hey Flack, your Yak Face woes are answered. Well, kinda. I hate that they gave him the West End Games-inspired revised “species name” instead of just calling him Yak Face. If I get that one… I’m totally gonna sticker that over, just for my own display.
Looks like the 3.75″ Black Series is history, now folded entirely into the retro-packaged Vintage Collection. I’m totally okay with that.
The May lineup… if funds allow next month, I’ll be picking some of these up, particularly Lando and Chewie. Maybe Phasma…maybe. If I can only afford two, though, Lando and Chewie get preference.
Then in June… Luke and Artoo are must-gets. Since the “basic” 3.75″ line didn’t do the Crait version of Luke, I’ll try to get two of him (a “hanger” and an “opener”), again providing I have the dough on hand.
