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.
