Star Wars Black no longer at Smyths

As originally broken by Robin Edmonds on the UK Star Wars Black Facebook Page, I can now confirm that Smyths Customer Service are advising customers that once the current stock of Black Series has sold through on clearance they will no longer be stocking that line.

That leaves SWB6 collectors Toys R Us on the high street, or independents. Although Asda may be about to enter the market having recently added SWBS6 to the Asda Living stores.

Smyths in general seem to have suffered on two fronts. Firstly they went heavy, as may did, on wave 2 and got stuck with Slave Leia and Greedo, to a lesser extent, as peg warmers for over a year. With all the figures on one SKU the system would rarely replenish with newer stock as Leia & Greedo weren't selling. They also went heavy in on the Deluxe wave, but although they got it ahead of TRU, they were later than a lot of the online stores and collectors had pretty much got what they wanted by that point (clearances prices in the states wouldnt have helped)

The Smyths news is disappointing for SWBS6 fans in the UK, but probably not all doom and gloom as am sure they will be back, along with many other new retailers, when the Force Awakens product hits in September, Wether that will include 6" figures is yet to be seen
