Rumor Report: 6” Black Series Waves 19 and 20

You may recall our report from a couple weeks ago where are some new 6” Black Series figures were found via a Brickseek. We now know what wave(s) to expect them in thanks to a tip from reader Benjamin I. Wave 19 looks to include Val (Mimban), the Imperial Patrol Trooper and L3-37 and Wave 20 should include Dengar, Lando (Skiff Guard Disguise) and Princess Leia (Hoth). Carry-forwards/repacks for these two cases are unknown at this time, but we will update as soon as we know.

Solo: Slow Stocking

As many of our fellow collectors have experienced, retailers seem to be on their own schedule (feels like a store-by-store basis) on getting new product onto the pegs for Hasbro’s latest lineup of Star Wars merchandise.

So if you haven’t seen many signs of new stock yet, it might just mean the stores you are hitting just haven’t made it a priority yet.  I’ve seen this slow trickle in  my neck of the woods, then yesterday found a Target that had finally set aside some time and shelf space to get new items out.

So, don’t give up  too early – and share your finds too (or lack thereof) after the jump!

Solo Toy Launch

If you went out hunting for new Star Wars product on Friday, chances are you were pretty underwhelmed by what was on the pegs (i.e. lack thereof).

Personally, I found a few things I wanted after driving around a bit, but it was pretty sad to see just how little retailers seemed to care about having new product out for the April 13 street date (I could not find one single carded figure anywhere – I struggle with calling  this as a “launch” at all).

If you did score some good stuff though, we’d love to hear about it and see pics in our forums.

Rumor Report: 6″ Six Eyes Coming Soon?

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.
