A new 6″ Black Series Rey (Resistance) was revealed at today Hasbro Breakfast. The image above comes from Steve Evans, Design Director at Hasbro via Instagram. He also states that starting in Spring 2018, they’ll be implementing a new paint technique.
UPDATE: here are a couple nice shots of TLJ and TFA Rey courtesy of The Wookiee Gunner
Rebelscum captured a great shot of this wet-haired 6″ Black Series Luke Skywalker that supports our rumor from 2015 regarding a possible Trash Compactor scene with that particular Luke. Stay tuned throughout the weekend to see how/if this pans out.
If you follow us via social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) you caught word early this morning that the SDCC exclusives for Hasbro will be available* on August 14 for purchase (on HasbroToyShop.com) according to Hasbro’s website. You can see each link and pricing below:
Rey (Jedi Training) and Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) – $49.99

*Limit 2 per household.
Upon revisiting our Target DPCI list we posted on July 2, one of the listings (087-06-8397) is now updated with a new coded description: “E8 BL Tango Black”. Since it is pretty specific and is reported as having a 10/1 release date and $19.99 price point, we suspect this may be an exclusive figure for The Last Jedi.
We shall see…. we shall see.*
*Not a hint
As we continue to gather details for Force Friday II in September, we’ve managed to assemble a preliminary “rumor” list of two waves of Black Series figures slated for release for the event. Wave 1 has been nailed down for a while but Wave 2 has some “newness” to it.
For a few details regarding the basic (non-Black Series) figure line, be sure to check out tonight’s episode of First Order Transmissions as I’ll be breaking down the first 3 waves of figures.

Target needs to take a hard look at their DPCI system and how they assign them to particular UPCs as there is no good explanation as to why a Black Series figure from 2015 (let alone Zuvio) should still be twice as much as a figure from 2016.
Target has finally begun the process of clearancing out product that has been desperately staring back at you for nearly the past year. While most of these are the “lower tiered” 5POA style toys that even the kids seem to have no interest in, you will also likely find items from TBS getting marked down significantly as well.
While it’s good to get out with the old, seeing what is on clearance, and more importantly, knowing what NEVER MADE IT to retail, is a chilling sign for just how bad the brand is being merchandised these days. We can only hope that Hasbro has a much better game plan for the upcoming two films and beyond and turns this frown upside down.
Head on over to the forums for some close up images of the items marked down at my local store in the STL area, as well as the markdowns (which are already significant)… and for a personal rant.

Today we have some new Target DPCIs to share that tie to the Force Friday II launch and beyond. These codes are listed simply as “Star Wars” through Brickseek, but on Target’s internal systems, some are linked to The Black Series, but we can’t confirm which at this time.
As always, thanks to TargetGod for the intel.
