There is one 3.75″ Black Series figure that has been highly requested for re-release since it was so difficult to find when Walmart held its exclusivity. Collectors can breathe a sigh of relief that the Rogue One Scarif Stormtrooper will be getting the “TVC” treatment. Another character joining the collection is rumored to be Leia in Boushh Disguise. It is unknown if it’s an all-new version or repacked (from 2015) but is probably the latter as the line is balancing repacks with all-new sculpts. Expect these along side Yak Face and Klaatu in 2019*.
*I sure hope these don’t get cancelled.
A little birdy told me that there may be a surprise or two left to be announced before the products for Solo: A Star Wars Story officially go up for preorder/sale tonight at 12am ET. Be sure to check back this evening for the reveal, unless there is an official press release prior.
For those wanting to plan ahead on their Black Series purchases, here are the details for Wave 18 (2018 wave 3).
Correlating UPCS/SKUs for the above can be found on our Master UPC/DPCI/SKU List.
Now that we have a name to go with the face, we can share a rumor of a new 6″ Black Series Argus “Six Eyes” Panox coming for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Not much is known (yet) in terms of availability but you can bet heavily that you’ll see it on shelves this year.
Note: In mythology, a being “Argus Panoptes” was said to have had a hundred eyes. Nice that the mythological names are carrying through to the characters from Solo too.
In my searches for new, unannounced products* today I managed to find a listing for an item that includes 5 Force Link 2.0 figures. It is unknown if it is another playset or a simple figure multipack but it includes at least one exclusive figure – Holographic Maz Kanata, plus Rey (Island Journey), Kylo Ren, a First Order Stormtrooper and Finn. I will share more details such as price and availability when possible.
*All rumors are unofficial and subject to cancellation by the manufacturer. No proprietary (non-public) information was used in the assemblage of this report.
Hasbro is really banking on the success of the Mighty Muggs line. As we reported last month with the rumor of 8 more on the way, you can now double that as I have found listings for 8 more. Click on through for the list that includes characters from Rogue One, Solo, A New Hope, Return of the Jedi and The Phantom Menace.

As we continue to assemble our upcoming checklist for the product launch on April 13 for Solo: A Star Wars Story, we’ve heard of two more vehicles coming as part of the Class B assortment. One is a repack from The Last Jedi – the A-Wing Fighter with Tallie, the other is rumored to be Han’s Landspeeder (with Han) as seen in the leaked production photos as well as the LEGO set (75209). Considering the number of repacks and non-Solo film related figures/vehicles coming out that day, the merchandising tie-ins seem to be quite low – maybe lower than Rogue One.
For those that didn’t shell out the cash for the BB-8 Mega Playset, (or by one loose off of eBay) your 3.75″ Force Link figure collection has a glaring hole. Even though there is an all-new super articulated Supreme Leader Snoke coming in the first wave of the Vintage Collection in April, rumor is he will also be available as an individually carded figure in the Force Link/Star Wars Universe line. Look for him to possibly ship along side the Princess Leia Hoth and Maz Kanata (with jetpack) carded figures in the spring.
With The Last Jedi in the rear view mirror for many, we can continue our focus to products for Solo: A Star Wars. As a refresher, we revealed through several articles (below in reverse chronological order going back to October) new products from Hasbro and Mattel.
Stay tuned for a more accurate breakdown of the first wave (wave 16?) of 6″ Black Series figures that will include characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story very soon.
Also, a friendly tip: 99% of the products with UPCs that we have shared over the months, can be found directly on Amazon.com and Walmart.com with a little app-fu and the barcode scanner built into their respective apps. You’re welcome :).
As we rumored a few days ago, Hasbro’s Forces of Destiny will be expanding to add its first vehicle in the line. An excellent candidate for this assortment would be Sabine’s “Graffiti Speeder” from the episode Crash Course.
