The next wave of the Star Wars Black Series 6" figures has been confirmed as the 5 new figures we saw at NYCC 2016 along with a totally unnecessary repack of Director Krennic from Rogue One, the third time this figure has been packed in a 6 figure wave.
While fans will look forward to picking up iconic characters like Qui-Gon, Lando and Hera - the bizarre decisions on what figures to include in waves is hard to fathom.
I, like many, now seem unlikely to see let alone own the Chirrut Imwe or Baze Malbus figures. Packing them with FOUR repacks has left retailers unwilling to sell singular as they dont want to be left with excessive amounts of Jyn and Cassian. And with the Toy market at its lowest after Xmas it seems doubtful that any major retailers will get this wave. We saw this exact situation in January last year with Asty and Hux.
This all begs the question why on earth wasn't Imwe or Malbus carried forward into Wave 11 to help collectors who want to spend their money on new figures - what does Hasbro know that we don't about Director Krennic?
Our archive page for Black Series 2017 has been updated with this new wave layout and the numbering. We estimate a March release, but this needs confirming,
