After an extensive search online, we’ve located and added the UPCs and Walmart SKUs for the second wave of 6″ Black Series Archive (BSA) figures to our 2019Master List of products. As you recall, Hasbro officially announced back in October at NYCC 2018 that wave 2 would consist of Anakin Skywalker, Yoda and the Biker Scout/Scout Trooper. Darth Maul* on the other hand has been on our rumor lists for a while and based on the UPC info found above, we now have Maul’s accurate (yet unofficial) confirmation. Case breakdown isn’t known at this time but we can guess that it will be similar to Wave 1 with a 2x pack out.
*Note: the image for Maul is not of the actual BSA figure.
After spending a few hours searching this morning, I managed to stumble across a new listing for an unannounced Vintage Collection figure: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise). Perfect for the upcoming Barge and rumored Tatooine Skiff, right? No word yet if this is exclusive to Walmart, but based on its UPC, that is not out of the realm of possibility. Maybe we’ll learn more about this at Toy Fair next month. The pertinent info has been added to our Master List of UPCs and SKUs.
Instagram account @boxlunchbrea has posted a first look at 5 new Return of the Jedi themed POP!s from Funko. Click the image above to check out Lando Calrissian (General), Emperor Palpatine, Wicket, Princess Leia (Endor Dress) and Han Solo (Endor Trench Coat)!
Update: There is also a 6 POP! as part of this release – an electronic Darth Vader complete with light up Sith lightning effects
Don’t give up hope on your hunt for the 6″ Black Series Gamorrean Guard. Stores are getting shipments this week and they will continue to get more plus, not all stores have reset their aisles yet. Over the past 4 days, my local store (Champlin, MN) has stocked the shelves twice (July 26 and July 30) since its release meaning some stores are receiving multiple cases and not just one, but as always your mileage my vary. For those that placed orders online, emails are going out stating a delay until August 20, so hopefully that will reassure you that you are covered until then.
New details for the illusive (at least in the US) 6″ Black Series Gamorrean Guard have been light since that original internal date of June 1 came and went. It now appears that mid-July is the new “target” time frame for its release. RC from Phoenix was told that his particular store has this specifically en route for July 14? Your mileage may vary, but we’ll definitely report when the first one turn up on shelf.
Brickseek has also updated with UPC and Walmart SKU data for the upcoming 6″ Black Series Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure coming in Wave 20. We’ve added the info to our Master List and our Amazon affiliate page for easy reference.
