Entertainment Weekly had the exclusive reveal of this year’s Star Wars Black Series SDCC and Celebration exclusives. You can expect to pick up Old Ben Kenobi at SDCC and Kylo Ren at Star Wars Celebration. The details of the exclusives are below, but I have a feeling Ben Kenobi will be re-release in an upcoming retail wave. Just like Boba Fett was without the Carbonate, The First Order Stormtrooper, ect. There are plenty of Kylo Rens out there so I really don’t see this one getting another release.
Its is already July and you can already feel the calm before the storm. Not only are retailers ramping up orders for the Holiday season, they are also getting antsy for Force Friday, which is Sept 4th. There are no pre-orders up on the wholesale level so they are keeping this one close until the very end. (more…)
