Star Wars Black Series, Wave 15 for January 2018

Yakface.com have revealed the make-up of the first Star Wars Black Series wave of 2018. This 15th Wave will apparently keep the Phase 3 packaging and will include at least three new figures. We've updated our 2018 page with this new info from Yakface.com

The January 2018 release will bring us the general release of Captain Rex - complete with new face printing technology. There will be DJ from The Last Jedi, and Rey in her Resistance Base (Journey to Ahch-to) outfit from The Force Awakens.

The wave will be the newer 8 figure assortment, and the other 5 figures are presently touted as repacks. These will be the recent figures of Lando and The Imperial Guard - good news for those who didn't get these in the summer of 2017 or who want to expand their Imperial Guard forces.

Less welcome is the repack of The Last Jedi Sergeant Poe - originally released in Wave 13 and already peg-warming in some stores.

The final two figures are from the start of Phase 3 back in 2015 - Captain Phasma and the First Order Stormtrooper. Now while these are most likely repacks, I am still going to hold out some minor hope of them at least being tweaked. The FO Trooper could be updated with the new headsculpt that we've seen on the Executioner figure and in the Amazon box set. Phasma could get a revised paint job and/or be packed with her new staff weapon.

Considering the 8 figures in the wave, it seems DJ will be the chase figure - followed by Rey and Rex. The rest are most likely going to peg warm, particularly the Phasma and Trooper figures IF there is no tweak.

We await full details on Wave 15 and if this is a January release then pre-orders should go up very soon.
