The Order 66 toy store in the UK has also listed a new 6-inch Star Wars Black Series 2-pack, featuring Pow Dameron vs. a Riot Control Stormtrooper. They are listed for a January release in the Uk. It’s unclear if they will make it to the US.

ONE: 12 COLLECTIVE LAWMASTER ONLY AT PREVIEWS
Previews has listed their exclusive Lawmaster motorcycle that is meant to go with the Judge Dredd One:12 Collective action figure. I would have thought they would have the Lawmaster sold separately, but it looks like you need to buy both that and a new Judge Dredd figure. Bummer.

Bryan first discovered an appreciation for action figures at an early age, setting up elaborate GI Joe ant hill attacks, complete with firework pyrotechnics. Due to the high injury rate for the Joes, replacements were a constant necessity.
