Mudtroopers, like sandtroopers, get everywhere. Hot Toys has theirs, LEGO and Funko have theirs, too and soon Hasbro will be releasing a couple in the Force Link line. But what about the 6″ Black Series? Rumor has it that there are a few more characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story coming to the front lines, one of which is a much needed mudtrooper. Details are murky, and smell like wet Wookiee, but you can probably bet on an early 2019 release from captivity.
In case you were late coming into the 6″ Black Series game, or missed them the first release, Entertainment Earth has preorders for individual figures from Wave 9 all priced at $21.99 each. Expected release date is August 2018.
Princess Leia Organa
EW has also revealed the SDCC exclusive Black Series Centerpiece Starkiller Base set which includes Rey and a new battle damaged Kylo Ren Black Series figure from The Force Awakens. For openers, the set includes a water mister for steam effects, and an acrylic light-up backdrop. Retail price is $109.99 and will be available at SDCC, Fan Expo Canada and Hasbro Toy Shop.

Speculation has been swirling like an icy wind around the possible Black Series exclusives for this year’s SDCC and we believe we have some frozen solid details for the first of three potential offerings. Echoing back to previous years, SDCC exclusives are often based on what’s come, and that holds true here, but it also pulls in another figure from out of the blue (with a fresh new face). Although not entirely scene accurate, the presentation may get you all mushy over it.
Based on some intel and cross-referencing of our recently acquired UPCs from Brickseek, it looks like Target may get yet another exclusive 6″ Black Series figure. Based on the above UPC/DPCI and its code name of “Chronos”, we surmise that it is White Worm member, Moloch. With the figure’s large size, it also slots into a larger price point of $29.99.
Chalk this up as an unconfirmed rumor for now until officially confirmed by Hasbro or when it shows up online, which ever comes first. Info has been added to our Master List as well.
Thanks to BP with the assist on this smuggled information.
U.S. collectors will be waiting a little longer for the Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series General Veers as compared to our overseas friends. We received word that we can expect this in the Fall and it will retail for $19.99 (no exclusive mark up).
Canada residents can now order the Toys”R”Us exclusive 6″ Black Series Stormtrooper with Blast Accessories.
Thanks to Toyshiz for the heads-up!
My oh my, what an uninspiring time the retail scene is these days for Star Wars…
5POA for the Solo line is front loaded with non-Solo movie figures, 6″ TBS is a rare store find at all, and TVC has kicked off with carry forwards that Walmart is pushing to the clearance section (hopefully this stops with Wave 2 and we see true peg space dedicated to them).
The only place worth even stopping to check out the Star Wars section at all in my neck of the woods is Target, who at least seems to be trying (but even there, the scene is pretty sad) . How goes it in your area?
Meanwhile, in Mattel’s Jurassic World section…
Based on our report this morning and after some additional digging on Brickseek it looks like that rumored* Target Exclusive 6″ figure will be Princess Leia (Bespin Outfit). As stated earlier, price point is set at $19.99 and has an estimated availability of early August. The assigned UPC and DPCI codes are provided in the image above and have been added to our Master List.
