We’ve had listing for 3 long-rumored Hot Wheels Characters for some time on our Master List and today, via Tim C. in the Star Wars Hot Wheels Collectors Facebook Group, we get the first look Jar Jar, R5-D4 and R2-Q5. Click on through for a closer look.
I found and shared this comical graphic and link via Facebook and Twitter from sponsor Entertainment Earth on Friday last week. At the time, the case of the 12 6″ Black Series Rose Tico figures was listed as $239.88 but I suspected a pending promotion for Valentine’s Day next week and sure enough, it’s now a mere $19.99.
Hot Toys has revealed their awesome 1:6 Scale Luke Skywalker (Crait) from The Last Jedi. Check out the full gallery on their Facebook page and watch for a preorder announcement soon through SideshowToy!
An image of the upcoming 6″ Black Series Rebel Trooper has been posted on a Facebook group courtesy of Brian Metz. This figure is part of the next wave (18) of figures at 1 per case, so expect it to be a bit tough to find at retail at first. Your best bet may be to order from one of our sponsors like Entertainment Earth or DorksideToys who will be receiving full cases of this figure. Watch for preorder announcements soon.
Over the holiday weekend, a member of a local MN toy group (MN Toy Posse on Facebook) found the new Black Series Darth Vader Helmet marked down to $75 at Walmart. If you are checking in your area for similar sales use UPC 630509607358 via Brickseek

Based on several posts via Facebook, Instagram and eBay, it appears that our intel was correct in that collectors can expect to be able to acquire both waves 16 and 17 of the 6″ Black Series assortment for the Solo: A Star Wars Story launch in April. Reports also confirm the case breakdown that we reported as well.
A few new images have turned up online via Facebook and eBay and today we get another look at Han Solo, Range Trooper, and Lando Calrissian from Solo: A Star Wars Story as well as shots of the renamed Death Star Trooper (note the new Photo Real face) and Jawa. Sadly, no Grand Moff Tarkin. Click on through for individual images of each.
Thanks to the Incredible Mr. Limpet for the heads-up.
