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.

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.
A new customizing community has launched via a private Facebook group. Star Wars: A Custom 1:12 Galaxy is a community of like-minded customizers as well as an educational resource for 1:12 Star Wars custom figures and dioramas. Their customizer’s archive is a variable “cookbook” chock-full of figure recipes, diorama blueprints, tutorial guides and a databank of materials that will allow you to search out and find the unique custom cast parts you need to complete any project.
To help promote this endeavor, we are proud to debut their recipe and tutorial for an amazing 6″ Yak Face/Saelt Marae figure. Click on through for the detailed images and info.
For those that are still collecting POP! figures from Funko (and merchandise from The Last Jedi), keep your sensors peeled at Target as they’ll soon be received an exclusive Resistance BB Unit.

In this digital age of news delivery we are looking into how to further enhance this site and how we bring the news to you. If you follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) you are already accustomed to our near real-time/live updates and notifications of breaking news, product announcements, exclusive reveals and in-stock availability of in-demand products.
That said, we are researching the implementation of push notifications transmitted to you via your phone, tablet, and desktop computers for even faster news delivery as we know you can’t be online every where at once. The notifications would be opt-in of course but we wanted to take your temperature on this first before implementing that functionality (if at all).
If you have an opinion on the matter, feel free to leave a comment. If received positively, we’d look for it to go into effect February 1.
