Home Bargains 6" Star Wars Black Series "bargains"

As has been reported on many Facebook groups, UK retailer Home Bargains are currently stocking wave 1 of the phase 3 Force Awakens 6" Black Series figures. The price is a staggering £5.99 each.

The catch here is the quality of the five figures which are being reported as being brittle, coming out of the box broken or with very poor paint jobs. Although unlikely to be bootlegs, these are potentially seconds or rejects from last year and being cleared out via Home Bargains at a very low cost price.

The five figures are Rey with BB8, Kylo Ren, Finn, Chewbacca and the First Order Stormtrooper. I took a look at a local Home Bargains and can confirm that there are issues with these figures, particularly the Stormtrooper where the heads were all warped and quite poorly painted. There are good examples out there, so worth hunting, and for customs these are a considerable saving than purchasing these new.
