J.B. continues to be your premier resource for Star Wars action figures. Today we've added the 3.75" Kylo Ren action figure to the system which was sold exclusively in Japan in the BluRay Movie Nex bundle. The set included Kylo Ren, an exclusive display stand by Takara Tomy (the distributor for Hasbro Star Wars in Japan), 10 mini posters, a 3-disc Steelbook BluRay set, a digital copy and a guide book to The Force Awakens. Have a look at the figure entry for all the details.
We've just finished our Black Series 3.75" toy line with the rare Amazon Italy exclusive Han Solo in Cinema Box a few days ago, and today we are happy to report that we've finished our 3.75" Rogue One Collection as well! The last entry into the database was the Finn with Desert Landspeeder set, which in Rogue One packaging was only sold in International markets.

Here is a Black Series 3.75" action figure set which a lot of collectors missed out on. In late 2017, right before the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Amazon Italy sold an exclusive cinema box set which included a Black Series 3.75" Han Solo figure.
The set featured the Hasbro and Black Series logos. The box included two movie theater tickets to see The Last Jedi, a BB-8 colored car charger, a BB-8 colored micro USB cable, BB-8 colored headphones, two headphone attachments for different ear sizes and the Han Solo figure. The set was limited to 500 pieces only and cost 49,99 Euros, which is currently $56.08 in the U.S. Needless to say, with only 500 sets made, and availability restricted to only Amazon Italy, this is the rarest of all Black Series 3.75" sets made. This was the last puzzle piece to our full Black Series 3.75" archive, have a look here for all figures made in this series: Star Wars Black Series 3.75" toy line.

Our friends at Fantha Tracks have learned that Hasbro's version of Han Solo's M-68 landspeeder is a copy of an art department concept design by Neil Ellis and not a copy of the actual model used in Solo: A Star Wars Story! Neil Ellis is a concept model maker and costume FX prop maker working for Lucasfilm. You can follow him on his Instagram account and make sure to check out the entire story at Fantha Tracks!

When I first saw The Force Awakens, I was struck by how little there was in the way of costume changes for the main characters. There also didn't seem to be many background characters. Whereas in A New Hope or Return of the Jedi, the camera lingers a bit more in the Cantina and Jabba's Palace, The Force Awakens seems to blur through its similar local, Maz's Castle. After I saw the movie twice, I started composing a list in my head of what figures Hasbro could make for the 3 3/4" line. At first I thought there were about 25-35 figures that could be made. With not all that many figures already released, and comparing this to the output we had with the last major film release, Revenge of the Sith, it seemed very small.
