Sideshow is now taking preorders for the Hot Toys 1:6 Scale Princess Leia (Bespin) figure from The Empire Strikes Back.
As a follow up to last week’s report regarding Target aisle reset plans, we’ve receive word that the planogram has now been updated to include the popular Gamorrean Guard again – that will mean (at least) 3 exclusives of the shelves for October. (Gamorrean, Moloch, at Bespin Escape Leia).
Amazon has picked up the exclusivity for Funko’s October Smuggler’s Bounty box and its theme is “Cloud City”.
The October Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty subscription box is taking a trip through the clouds inspired by Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back. The box will include an exclusive Empire Strikes Back Pop! figure and other collectibles you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Quantities are limited. Do or do not. There is no try.
You can preorder the box now for $29.99.

Release Date: Oct. 1, 2018
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.
