    I have been asking myself the very same question my friend and I find it really odd that so far none of them have been released. I even found some pics of upcoming TFA figures yet I have seen no figure of our OT heros.

    It's really a bummer that we're not getting those figures as well as important characters like Maz Kanata and Snoke. I'm thinking they are not even going to do a Snoke figure as aparently they don't want us to know his real size. We get figures of both Sarkp Plank and Constable Zuvio wich were both deleted yet we can't get someone like Ackbar, the Bossk looking guy at Maz's or the huge worm that was at Maz's as well. Heck even a few new droids are more welcome than this gattling gun Finn.
    I'd take figures of this:

    Or even this scary thing:

    Over another lame armored Finn figure any day. We don't have a single Leia figure yet we already have about five Finn figures.

    That one guy on Twitter bought a Han figure along with Lightsaber Rey and the McCquarrie wolfman looking dude. So I'm sure they're coming soon.

    Walmart seems to have been withholding the figures from the stores and jacking the prices on Walmart.com.
    $24.99 for the basic 3.75" Han Solo, it's rediculious.

    Same for the resistance Ray.

    I have only seen the Han Solo and Resistance Rey 3.75 figure once (about a month ago) in Target, and bought 2 of each. If there is a demand for them, I will try to sell the extra one of each I have on Ebay.

    Since Force Friday, I've honestly been more selective about which figures I buy. I will make a point to buy the BS Luke, Leia, C3PO with red arm, Snoke (if made), and General Hux. Just got the Ahsoka and Kanan. Really wish they'd make a Kylo Ren shuttle for the 3.75 figure like Kenner would have.

    Certain areas must be getting theirs before Kansas City, MO, because I have seen several on eBay that aren't anywhere around here. Saturday I was 5 minutes late getting to my local comic shop and the guy checking out in front of me got the last Black Series Luke. I also saw a Black Series 3.75 Leia in the blue dress on ebay that I will collect when it finally gets around here. I snagged the Han Solo as soon as I saw it, knowing there probably won't be any for Episode 8.

    They could be waiting for celebration before releasing any more Black Series figures as in the uk haven't seen any new ones for a while

    I read somewhere that they were possibly canceling some of the later BS runs, and switching the packaging over to BS Rogue One packaging. I do know some of the figures aren't selling well over here. At Walmart, the pegs are always full of Finn figures, and the Poe figure. Never see the Rey or Kylo anymore. There has been a storm of Captain Phasma figures, but I believer her lack of screen time has massively affected her action figure sales. I can't wait til they make a Force Awakens Luke in his beard and robes. I will walk over small children and elbow an old lady in the face to grab that one first.

    re: the Black Series

    i live in a massive geek town and finding figs is super-hard.
    i only just managed to snag a Phasma a couple of weeks ago, though right before the DVD/Bluray release there were plenty of Kylo Rens and Stormtroopers to be had (which had been scarce previously).
    now it's mostly Guavian Death Guards and Resistance fighters (if even that). with the occasional Finn.

    i should note too that i live in the city where Hasbro makes these dang things, so it's massively frustrating.
    wave 6 was supposed to be out in January and i've seen not one single fig from that series.

    I've given up on Walmart as all they had since the holidays are secondary characters that nobody buys. Once in a while Target/ToysRUs restock as I was able to get a Resistance Rey and Han last month.

    I think that Disney is forcing them to do this thing where once they release a certain amount of figures, they purposely let the stock in all stores run out and then build up demand before releasing more .

    They seem to have a ton of Black Series figures around my area. I saw about 6 of the Darth Vader Emperor attack figures at Walgreens. The Walmarts and Targets here have a ton of Finn's and Phasma's (which I knew interest would die quickly after her part in the movie). Now, I am on a quest to find the Boba Fetts in the stores around here, as eBay is just too marked up for my personal liking. I am really wanting an old Luke figure to be made and released. I will be pissed off it is a Comicon exclusive kind of thing though.

    I finally got my Finn and Bloody Helmet Finn off Ebay. Trying to decide if I want to stop by a local store on my way home and get a BS Commander Cody and Red Clone trooper.

    Wow, this BS Princess Leia figure looks really bad. More like a drag queen.
