SANDTROOPER #01 Sandtrooper - The Black Series 6-inch collection from Hasbro 2014 The Black Series

Sandtroopers search Tatooine for R2-D2 and C-3PO, who escaped from a Rebel ship with the plans to the Death Star. The troopers encounter the two Droids in Mos Eisley, but a Jedi mind trick fools them into letting the Droids go."These aren't the Droids we're looking for."

After releasing four waves of figures, Hasbro redesigned the packaging for The Black Series 6-inch collection, replacing the orange details with blue and altering the window to better display larger characters. With the new package design, Hasbro opted to renumber the line and the Wave 1 2014 assortment was born. This first wave of figures included the repainted #01 Sandtrooper with black enlisted pauldron pictured here, the Return Of The Jedi #02 Darth Vader with two-part removable helmet, the Return Of The Jedi #03 Luke Skywalker as he appeared in the film's climatic third act, and A New Hope #04 Chewbacca.

The figures in this assortment were first displayed in Hasbro's showroom at the 2014 International Toy Fair, and then publicly in their booth at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. All four figures began showing up the following September.

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.
