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.

Target’s Exclusive 6″ Black Series Luke Skywalker (Ahch-To Island) has now been marked down 50% to $14.98 in some locations as I found this morning at my local store (Plymouth, MN). As always, your mileage may vary in finding similar discounts in your area.
Well, it looks it our initial report of the Vintage Collection wave 2 was accurate after all as Robot Kingdom has posted the case assortment breakdown. 3 new figures will be issued in this wave: Han Solo, Enfys Nest, Imperial Combat Tank Driver plus a repack Death Trooper from Walmart’s exclusive TBS line and finally, 4 peg roasting carry forwards consisting of Kylo Ren, Rey, Supreme Leader Snoke and First Order Stormtrooper. Head on over to check it out, plus take a gander at the (poorly kept secret) Enfys Nest carded figure.
Welp, another product has leaked out to retail before the official announcement. This time it’s the long-rumored Black Series Centerpiece Rey (Starkiller Base) set. This will also be available as part of the SDCC Exclusive Starkiller Base set that was announced two weeks ago. This was found, again, at Toys”R”Us in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Thanks to Ben R. for the image.
EW has also revealed the SDCC exclusive Black Series Centerpiece Starkiller Base set which includes Rey and a new battle damaged Kylo Ren Black Series figure from The Force Awakens. For openers, the set includes a water mister for steam effects, and an acrylic light-up backdrop. Retail price is $109.99 and will be available at SDCC, Fan Expo Canada and Hasbro Toy Shop.
Update: Press release and images added

Walmart has finally given up the glut of 6″ TBS figures from The Force Awakens and Rogue One – unable to sell some of these even at $5.00 each, some stores have lowered the price to mere pennies per figure in an effort to dump inventory (three cents each, to be exact). Be on the lookout in your area, and you might find Brickseek helpful in your searches.
After some digging on that taboo resource, Brickseek, I managed to find the UPCs and Walmart SKUs for the new figures in wave 2 and 3 of the 2018 Vintage Collection (which we’ve had in our Master List for weeks). You can see the info in the graphic above or check it out in our list with the full case breakdown of the waves. I’ve also taken the liberty of adding each of the figures to our Amazon Associates page. You can’t order them yet but you can add them to your personal lists for future ordering reference when available.
The flood continues as Instagram follower madcollector24 reports finding wave 1 of the 2018 Vintage Collection at Fry’s Marketplace in Chandler, Arizona
Twitter follower Nitehawk_76 reports finding a fresh case of the 2018 Vintage Collection wave 1 at his Walmart in Texas.
Like previous merchandise launches (The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi), multiple waves of 6″ Black Series may make it into the hands of collectors via retail (brick and mortar and online) for the launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story products in April. Wave 16 has already started showing up in advance of the street date and Wave 17 may be hot on its heels.
