Rumor Report: 6” Black Series Waves 19 and 20

You may recall our report from a couple weeks ago where are some new 6” Black Series figures were found via a Brickseek. We now know what wave(s) to expect them in thanks to a tip from reader Benjamin I. Wave 19 looks to include Val (Mimban), the Imperial Patrol Trooper and L3-37 and Wave 20 should include Dengar, Lando (Skiff Guard Disguise) and Princess Leia (Hoth). Carry-forwards/repacks for these two cases are unknown at this time, but we will update as soon as we know.

Brace Yourself for Bent Barge Booklets

Here is a preemptive warning to those expecting a Behind the Workbench booklet for the Jabba’s Sail Barge. Due to the oversized envelope and the average size mailboxes people have, letter carriers are forced to fold/bend/crease the booklets to fit, yielding less than ideal conditions for this limited edition document. I would think a  simple “DO NOT BEND” stamp could have alleviated some of the potential damage.

Solo: Slow Stocking

As many of our fellow collectors have experienced, retailers seem to be on their own schedule (feels like a store-by-store basis) on getting new product onto the pegs for Hasbro’s latest lineup of Star Wars merchandise.

So if you haven’t seen many signs of new stock yet, it might just mean the stores you are hitting just haven’t made it a priority yet.  I’ve seen this slow trickle in  my neck of the woods, then yesterday found a Target that had finally set aside some time and shelf space to get new items out.

So, don’t give up  too early – and share your finds too (or lack thereof) after the jump!
