R5-G19 R5-G19 2014 The Black Series

An R5-series astromech droid stands in the briefing room as Rebel Alliance leaders Mon Mothma and Admiral Ackbar outline the planned attack on the second Death Star.

In the fourth quarter of 2014 the first wave of figures in The Black Series revamp began to hit shelves across North America. The assortment comprising of repaints, repacks, and a single kit bash figure, including the character debut #01 R5-G19 pictured here, the kit bashed #02 Luke Skywalker, the repacked #03 Darth Vader, the repainted #04 Darth Malgus, the repacked #05 Starkiller (Galen Marek), and the repacked #06 Yoda, featured a brand new card back design that did away with the minimalist style seen previously in favour of a layout that harkened back to the 2008 Legacy Collection and The Clone Wars packaging.

What's In The Box?
  • R5-G19 Figure

About This Figure:
  • The #01 R5-G19 figure was made using Build A Droid parts making it easily customizable.
  • The droid on the card back isn't actually R5-G19. While this figure represents a droid seen in the briefing room, it was standing on the other side of the set behind an extra in a cape.

Poll
Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
