It’s a cold and blustery Friday here in Minnesota/Hoth, and a new rumor has risen over the frozen horizon. The exact details are coded and the source had a self-destruct, but it’s a good bet that the Empire (Hasbro) knows it’s coming and Darth Vader is seeing to it personally (as a pack-in).
Rumour has it (ooh) we can expect a few more Rogue One (5 POA) action figure two packs — both of which may feature a trooper that seems to be all the rage right now. One of the sets includes a rebel pilot, the other, a “space monkey”? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Stop. Rumor Time. We’ve received a tad bit of intel regarding a future (not necessarily the next) wave of 3.75″ Black Series figures coming to Walmart next year.
Without spilling the beans fully, I can hint that all four will probably be repacks; two of them are potential army builders, one is a very requested figure from the Original Trilogy offered briefly in the Vintage Collection and one is a perennial favorite.
Any guesses? Leave them in the comment section or forums and stay tuned for more vague rumors and cryptic writings (maybe even for Episode VIII) in the coming days.
As we’ve been hinting in the last few episodes of The Realm Recap, the weeks leading up to Toy Fair are a prime time for product reveals and leaks. Jedi Temple Archives has posted a new rumor list of 6″ figures planned for The Black Series including Original Trilogy figures like Ben Kenobi, AT-AT Driver and Snowtrooper. Head on over for the story.
We’ve received an intelligence report from a trusted source that there are plans for an exclusive 6″ Black Series Trash Compactor scene in the works. Our rebel spy was able to see a newly sculpted head for the existing 6″ Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise. It is unknown at this time if it would include multiple figures (Han, Chewie, Leia, and Luke) or if it would be something like the recent Kmart Exclusive Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) as the concept is still looking for an official retail partner. More to come….
