Rumor Report: 6″ Black Series Mudtrooper for 2019?

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.

SDCC Exclusive Rumor: It’s Getting Hoth In Here

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).
