    Hasbro revealed their Black Series snowspeeder at NYC Toyfair. This will include a Dak Ralter figure, but the cockpit will have room for two Black Series figures, so pilot Luke could also fit in there. This will retail at $119.99 (USD) and I’ve found it on pre-order for £92.85 (GBP).

    Do we think we’ll get a Boba Fett re-release in this line? I’ve missed him twice now and was hoping this line would finally give me a chance to snag him for a halfway decent price.

    I think it’s likely that we’ll see a Boba Fett. Fett is easily one of the most iconic character designs and most sought after figures out there. I believe that there’s another wave of ESB anniversary figures still to come and I suspect that Hasbro may have been keeping him in their back pocket for that.

    The 2019 Black Series fan choice poll, had a top ten heavy with ESB characters (Dagobah Luke was the winner, I believe). The top ten included Willrow Hood (ice cream maker guy), Lobot, Bespin Leia, an FX-7 medical droid and an Ugnaught. I wouldn’t be shocked to see one or two of these become figures as well.

    Really looking forward to TVC 3.75 line. Nice sculps and like 1980 all over again! Especially with the Retro ESB wave. Thoughts on these? Again the figure I really want is the new sculp/figure which is Snowspeeder Luke with the game. So we are expecting these mid to late April?!

    I'm stoked for the Retro line as well! I got all six of the first wave plus the Tarkin that came with that wave's board game. I think I saw an April 24 release date for the game with Snowspeeder Luke and just a "Spring" release date for the six figures. Supposed to be a Wal-Mart exclusive

    I want the ESB board game - I never had that when it came out. The Luke figure looks good.

    A Black Series Boba Fett has just been announced. It’s a carbonized version. It’s up for pre-order on some sites.

    Thanks for the heads up! I’ve gotta say, that carbonized version is pretty tempting — I might have to suck it up and go for it, he’s the only major Original Trilogy character I’m missing from my display.

    Mine arrived today. This thing is huge. Great detail. I had the original one but this is something else. Waiting on luke to arrive to take his place with Dak.

    If they do a black series at at to scale it will be massive

    He's great. Picked him up a few weeks ago. The tie fighter pilot was one of my favorite background characters

    I have been very tempted to order a Snowspeeder, so it’s good to hear that you’re happy with your purchase. It will be a great piece when you have Dak and Luke together.

    I don’t think we’ll see a Black Series AT-AT because of the size, but we could see an AT-ST sometime in the future. I suspect that Hasbro are testing the water with the Snowspeeder. If it sells well (which I think it will), we might see more vehicles further down the line.

    I put in a pre-order for the carbonized Boba as well. I have the original, but I couldn’t resist another.

    I saw that! I ended up finding a relatively cheap Boba Fett online, so I’ll leave the 40th Anniversary figure for all the collectors who don’t unbox their figures like I do. But I appreciate the heads up! :)

    Cheers. Just waiting on luke. The speeder is massive so I'd say an in scale at at would've been maybe a hasbro funded job like the sail barge was and unicron
