    Who else is into collecting these awesome 6 inch figures? They are a little pricey but the the detail they have makes them well worth the money. I have just fairly recently started collecting them and I love "the hunt" in trying to find the ones I need to complete each wave that has previously been released. I'll post a pic of my Black Series display sometime later. A complete checklist can be found here: www.itsalltrue.net/?page_id=24273

    I've started collecting these, and they are indeed nicely detailed and sculpted.

    I'm hoping to find a few new ones under the tree...

    I was trying to avoid collecting these and save some money for The Force Awakens line but gave in and ordered wave 5. Now I'd like to find Boba Fett, Luke in X-wing gear, and R2-D2. I'm lucky to have two Target stores near were I live and recently seen the Shadow Trooper two pack with Speederbike, I'm contemplating on whether to get one as it's an exclusive and that is usually what I specialize my collecting around.

    They look pretty cool, but I missed out on the first ones and so it's a bit late for me to start collecting them now.

    Personally I'm probably largely off collecting figures for now, except maybe if McFarlane started making them. :drool:

    I highly recommend in getting them if you happen to come across them again! I've looked at a couple of Target stores near me and struck out both times while trying to find the Shadow Squadron set. Oddly enough, my local Walgreens was LOADED with Prototype Armor Boba's! I ended having to get my Shadow Squadron set off ebay. Sure, I paid a little extra, but man they sure look awesome! :)

    I missed ALL of the waves/series up until just a little over a couple of months ago. So it's never too late. ;)

    Ok, here it is guys...

    (x-wing)I was doing a little Christmas shopping yesterday, and I perused the Star Wars part of the toy section. All they had was Slave Leia and Greedo and little Wedge here. :)

    The famed Rebel pilot now sits proudly on my desk at work, keeping me company.

    I've got both the regular and prototype Boba. Happy with them.

    Bit disappointed with the qualify and proportion issues with the Scout Trooper.

    Still waiting to get the Stormtrooper and Sandtrooper, and then I'm properly done until the TFA imperials.

    I just ordered my first Black Series figure from Amazon, the 6 inch Tie Pilot. Quality looks good and hoping not to be disappointed.

    If this helps, I received mine a couple of months ago and I'm not disappointed.

    I think you'll be very happy with what you get. I have a dozen or so 6" Black Series Figures, and all are nicely detailed and painted. They have great articulation and hold a solid pose. They also hold their blasters/weapons tightly.

    Can't wait to get my hands on the upcoming TFA 6" figures...:D

    Got the Tie Pilot today and you guys were right, it certainly did not disappoint. I've got him on my desk right now as I type this. He's posed in a purposeful stride, I imagine he's assigned to the Death Star and he's heading to his awaiting TIE in the hangar :cool: Definitely would like to pick up some more, the Scout Trooper / speeder bike and Hoth Luke / Wampa combos look cool.

    I have about a dozen of them but keep mine in the box. Need to because I have a nosy cat around. I'm waiting on the 1st wave of '15 to come to my doorstep. Which includes the series of 4. Han and Luke in stormtrooper garb and a clonetrooper and Emporer.

    The Ahsoka figure looks like it will be pretty cool. I like the realistic features that will allow it to mesh with the others in the series. I hope they do several Rebels figures. I'd like to at least have the Ghost gang, the Inquisitor, and Kallus. An couple of the old clone troopers from season 2 would be cool also.

    A little late to the party, as I had no plans of getting any of these. Then today I decided, why not? I order the Boba Fett (no PT) 6", as well as both sandtroopers (Orange and black paladin)

    What is the difference between that and barbie? Also... The dad is obviously not a Star Wars fan... It almost seems staged..

    Also, the dad complains about the chain around her neck...What about that big ass chain around his neck?

    If he doesn't have any answers to why she has a chain around her neck then he probably hasn't seen the movie and needs to be shot.:) But seriously, it isn't hard to say it is from a movie and it isn't real. It's all make believe kids.
