Hopefully you saw our rumor report of upcoming Vintage Collection figures we posted last week prior to SDCC. Only a few were revealed but as promised, here are the UPCs and Walmart SKUs for those figures. This should fill in some (not all) of those open slots shown on Hasbro’s slide for 2019. You’ll notice a couple absences from our initial report (Luke Skywalker, Darth Revan and Death Star Gunner) – I’ll provide those respective codes once I do a bit of double checking and cross referencing to insure their accuracy. These have been added to our Master List as well.
Following up on our 6″ Black Series 2019 report from yesterday, it’s time to check out what we can expect for some of the 3.75″ Vintage Collection figures for next year. Surprisingly there are not a lot on this following list that support Jabba’s Sail Barge. Not surprisingly there may be a fair amount of repacks again from Walmart’s exclusive releases and potentially older TVC figures. Click on through to check out what we’ve uncovered.
As a follow up to our report from April, it looks like wave 19 of the 6″ Black Series assortment is shaping up as follows:
1x Imperial Patrol Trooper
1x Rio Durant
1x Princess Leia – Hoth Outfit
1x Lando Calrissian – Skiff Guard
1x Han Solo – Bespin Outfit (Wave 18 repack)
As you can see, this is one of the strongest waves of Black Series to come out in some time. Watch for official preorders to go live soon.
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.
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.
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.
