J.B. reader Wayne Eggert has shared some images with us of variations he's found in figures from Hasbro's 6" 40th Anniversary Collection.
I thought I would share the variations in the new sandpeople figures. In addition to the color difference on the heads, the pouches on the dark head version are painted a flat reddish brown while the pouches on the other are unpainted glossy light brown. The dark head seems to have been produced over many waves and the lighter head on possibly the last lot only. I've seen several of each, but all the light heads have been from the same lot (70961) where there are a wide range of lots on the dark head.
Similarly, the flat reddish brown pouches have been only on the Sand People with dark heads while the light brown have been exclusive to the lighter head version. This could be because of a mixed production since all the pictures I've seen of the main run Black Series Raider have all had light heads. If it goes back to dark heads in a later run, this could wind up being the rarest 40th anniversary figure.

Let's take a look at Hasbro's The Black Series 6" figures on the secondary market. Most Black Series 6" figures can be had for regular retail price even years after their release, but there are some figures which have increased in value gradually.
Currently the top spot goes to the Boba Fett/Han Solo in Carbonite 2-pack which was a San Diego Comic Con exclusive in 2013. The demand for some of those figures is pretty amazing, even bootleg versions seem to be making quite a bit of money on the secondary market (Darth Maul!).
Many of the figures listed below have doubled in value, if not more, check it out:
2) Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot), 1st release and 40th Anniversary Collection

They will be released together with a display stand which can hold a backdrop picture (each figure will come with two different backdrops, a movie scene and a character picture). The Black Series 6" figures will also get static versions along with a display stand which features sounds and light effects ($50 each).
For the full reveal, head on over to Gizmodo.com.
In early January 2017 JediBusiness.com reader Toby Laurie purchased a Hasbro The Black Series 6" figure on Ebay, and when he received it he noticed that Han Solo's hair was the correct gray color. Originally Hasbro released Han Solo with a light brown hair color, but told us during an interview at Star Wars Celebration Europe, that the hair color would be corrected.
"I bought it off eBay! Never seen it anywhere else and one this one! I've checked the box and the sellotape is original by all accounts" and "it was an English seller as the packaging is the UK version without the design blight hazard label on the front!"
So keep your eyes peeled when you are out on a toy run looking for figures!
Thanks for your report Toby!

Do you remember people finding The Black Series 6" Anakin Skywalker action figures in Chewbacca packaging? It looks like packaging errors are back. JediBusiness.com reader Tommy Lopez found a Jyn Erso (Jedha) action figure in Cassian Andor (Eadu) packaging. The box was still sealed sitting on a retailer's shelf.
We do get asked quite often how much something like this is worth, and the answer is, not much more than its retail price. Keep in mind that Hasbro's 6" The Black Series boxes can EASILY be tampered with. The tape can very easily be peeled off to open the box without any visual damage to the packaging and a different figure, including its plastic housing, can be inserted without any trouble.
It sure makes for a unique collectible and a cool find, but don't expect to make money off of those random factory errors.
Thanks for reaching out Tommy!

Hasbro's The Black Series 6" line of action figures has shown up at ROSS stores again. This time the First Order Stormtrooper and Rey with BB-8 were found at $8.99. The downside? Look at the paint applications on all the figures. The Stormtrooper had black spots up and down the armor while BB-8 had an entirely clean body with a super dirty head. Is it worth buying figures this cheap and compromising on the quality? Your call! Happy Hunting!
Your mileage will vary, but Kendall Pope reported in that he found The Black Series Target exclusive 6" Poe Dameron with FN-2199 on clearance for $11.98! Our local Target carries them at full price still, but it might be worth to take it up to the scanner next time to check the price!
