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. But what about the 6″ Black Series? Rumor has it that there are a few more characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story coming to the front lines, one of which is a much needed mudtrooper. Details are murky, and smell like wet Wookiee, but you can probably bet on an early 2019 release from captivity.
In case you were late coming into the 6″ Black Series game, or missed them the first release, Entertainment Earth has preorders for individual figures from Wave 9 all priced at $21.99 each. Expected release date is August 2018.

Thanks to Toyshiz for the heads-up!
Based on our report this morning and after some additional digging on Brickseek it looks like that rumored* Target Exclusive 6″ figure will be Princess Leia (Bespin Outfit). As stated earlier, price point is set at $19.99 and has an estimated availability of early August. The assigned UPC and DPCI codes are provided in the image above and have been added to our Master List.
*All rumors are unofficial and the availability is subject to change.
We’re getting to that time again where new info is starting to populate online databases and in store systems. With that, I came across about a dozen new UPCs that I’m currently researching and trying to decode. One such item is for a 6″ Black Series figure that is showing up in Target’s system as “BS 6″ Bespin” with a price point of $19.99. There aren’t any additional details for it, but since it doesn’t share a UPC with the upcoming Bespin Han Solo, and it specifically references Bespin in its name, I’m thinking this could be another unannounced exclusive.
What if it was a revisit of the Bespin Luke with new Photo Real face tech? Maybe it’s a Princess Leia in Bespin Gown or in her Bespin Escape attire – which would be a great repurposing of the upcoming Hoth Leia sculpt? Or, what if it’s Lando’s third love, Lobot? (The first and second being himself and L3-37, respectively). Feel free to speculate as to whom you think the figure might be.
Thanks to TargetGod for the assist in this report and stay tuned for more details on this and other items as they are gathered.
CommScan has picked up another unannounced figure heading our way. InDemandToys.co.uk has posted an image of a 6” Black Series Exclusive General Veers complete with removable AT-AT Commander armor. Look for an official announcement soon regarding its details.
If you listened to our last episode of The Realm Recap, you may have heard a passing mention of this figure.

As for U.S. residents, don’t expect finding this at Target quite yet. While the hard locked street date is June 1, they have yet to arrive stateside.
