Star Wars Black Series, February 2016 wave will contain Flametrooper

Japanese online store AmiAmi released details this week of what they called "Assortment 9" of the Star Wars 6 inch Black Series.

This assortment is due for release in February 2016 and is listed as containing the following figures

[Set Contents] -Captain Phasma x1 -Jango Fett x1 -Flame Trooper x2 -Finnn 2 x1 -Chewbacca 2 x1

The obvious figure to jump out is that of the Flametrooper who will be packed 2 per case to bolster the ranks of the First Order.

Jango Fett will become the first non-Episode 7 character to be included in the new phase 3 packaging.

The other interesting elements are the numerical 2 after both Finn and Chewbacca. This could indicate an alterative version. For Finn this is expected to be his Stormtrooper outfit. For Chewbacca, we are not sure, unless there is a signifcantly different look in the film for Chewie I am not sure what you could do, particularly as he is already peg warming. The other alternative is the 2 here relates to this being the 2nd Chewie release in the range after the Original Trilogy chewie from wave 5.

This all ties up to the info Dorkside Toys broke earlier in the year, and the only real question now is whether we have 2 more waves coming in December ahead of this Feb release? These would be what we have been calling wave 3 (Tie Pilot and Resistance Trooper) and wave 4 (Hux, Snowtrooper and Asty)
