Fellow collector and J.B. reader Owen Brown found a difference between the single carded Range Trooper from the Force Link 2.0 series and the multipack Range Trooper figure from the Mission On Vandor-1 4-pack. If you look closely at the chest plate you'll notice that the single carded figure has a small black stripe painted on it while the figure from the multipack has a blue stripe instead.
StarWars.com has revealed the next wave of tube figures which will include Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Rey, Kylo Ren, General Grievous and Boba Fett. Each pack contains one 3.75-inch scale Star Wars figure, a mini comic, and a code that can be activated with a smart device to unlock more stories online. We've done the research for you and tell you which figures are re-releases and from what series, take a look!
Originally the up-coming Black Series 6" General Grievous action figure was listed with a ship date of March 2019 which has now been pushed back by a month into April. It's not too late to get your pre-order in at Entertainment Earth though.
With Star Wars Celebration Chicago taking place (we'll likely see some exclusives there) and the next wave of Vintage Collection figures shipping, April is shaping up to be a very busy month for Star Wars action figure fans!
Entertainment Earth is now taking pre-orders for the highly anticipated next wave of Black Series 6" figures. The wave includes highlights such as Mace Windu, an Episode 1 Battle Droid, Padme Amidala from Episode II, Vice Admiral Holdo, Dryden Voss and Han Solo in Mudtrooper disguise. Check it out and get your order in!
Entertainment Earth has updated their pre-order listing for the Vintage Collection 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper with a carded image. The name plate looks mighty busy with two languages squeezed onto it, but we like how it turned out overall! To get your figure pre-ordered have a look here.
