A new images showing 12 Mystery Minis for Solo: A Star Wars Story give us the first glimpse of a couple new characters. Based on some reference that I have, I believe that the 1/36 character is Dryden Vos (middle row, far right) played by Paul Bettany. As for the figure on the lower right, he/she is a mystery for now.

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.
Prototype collector Gorkoracing has shared via Instagram a rather cool acquisition he recently obtained. The set of Echo Base themed prototypes dates back to 2012 and includes a probe droid (with breakaway pod), Echo Base Trooper, Imperial Engineer, and an Echo Base console. Head on over to Gorkoracing’s Instagram feed for the details.
