At the end of August, Robot Kingdom posted an image of a new Han and Leia Hoth Two-Pack (seen HERE). The online retailer later took down the posting. Like you, we were wondering where this particular Black Series set was going to land, let alone be available for pre-order. Well, we now have our answer, Europe!
We did some quick research and the MCM London Comic Con and Comic Con Paris (France) are both at the end of October. Which means we could see these to appear as early as November on the secondary market. Will Hasbro place them on the Hasbro Toy Shop? Happy Hunting, Junkies. #AFJ4LIFE
From Yahoo Lifestyle (UK): "Hasbro, the toy manufacturer behind the hugely popular and ridiculously collectible Star Wars: The Black Series range, has announced its first ever UK and European convention exclusive figures. The Black Series is renowned for its incredibly detailed recreations of classic Star Wars characters, and they’ve become highly sought after by hardcore fans.
We’re thrilled to be able to share the first look at the ‘Star Wars: The Black Series Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa Figures‘ which will only be available to purchase at MCM London Comic Con, Comic Con Paris (France) and Lucca Comics & Games (Italy) and at Noris Force Con in Germany (through their wholesaler Heo).
The dual pack contains 6-inch scale figures of Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa, as they are seen on the planet Hoth in Star Wars: Episode IV – The Empire Strikes Back" (see full piece HERE).
