After an extensive search online, we’ve located and added the UPCs and Walmart SKUs for the second wave of 6″ Black Series Archive (BSA) figures to our 2019 Master List of products. As you recall, Hasbro officially announced back in October at NYCC 2018 that wave 2 would consist of Anakin Skywalker, Yoda and the Biker Scout/Scout Trooper. Darth Maul* on the other hand has been on our rumor lists for a while and based on the UPC info found above, we now have Maul’s accurate (yet unofficial) confirmation. Case breakdown isn’t known at this time but we can guess that it will be similar to Wave 1 with a 2x pack out.
*Note: the image for Maul is not of the actual BSA figure.
Columbia Sportswear has officially revealed their next offering in their Limited Edition Star Wars line of jackets. The Star Wars Empire Crew parka is a tribute to that iconic blue and orange crew parka from the Norwegian location shoot for Hoth. It is set to launch on December 7th for $500.00. There will also be a limited number of jackets signed by Mark Hamill ($1,980*).

*All proceeds of these sales go to charity.
Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow (November 6), HasbroToyShop will be offering the exclusive 6″ Black Series Echo Base Set with Han Solo and Princess Leia.

Thanks to Rogue 13 for the heads-up.

Speculation has been swirling like an icy wind around the possible Black Series exclusives for this year’s SDCC and we believe we have some frozen solid details for the first of three potential offerings. Echoing back to previous years, SDCC exclusives are often based on what’s come, and that holds true here, but it also pulls in another figure from out of the blue (with a fresh new face). Although not entirely scene accurate, the presentation may get you all mushy over it.
U.S. collectors will be waiting a little longer for the Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series General Veers as compared to our overseas friends. We received word that we can expect this in the Fall and it will retail for $19.99 (no exclusive mark up).
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.
We’ve found a new boxed image for the upcoming 6″ Black Series Zuckuss. Hopefully the retail partner(s) for this former TRU exclusive will be announced soon. Click the image above to check it out.
