Rumor Report: 6″ Black Series 2019

While doing some research over the past couple of days on few new UPCs I found on Brickseek, I came across more as-of-yet unannounced and rumored products for the Black Series and by “more” I can confirm 17.  If you frequent some of the Black Series groups on Facebook, I’ve been “hinting” at some of them, but if not and your curiosity is piqued, click on through and maybe we’ll see some of these confirmed at SDCC this year.

Look Familiar?

My oh my, what an uninspiring time the retail scene is these days for Star Wars…

5POA for the Solo line is front loaded with non-Solo movie figures,  6″ TBS is a rare store find at all, and TVC has kicked off with carry forwards that Walmart is pushing to the clearance section (hopefully this stops with Wave 2 and we see true peg space dedicated to them).

The only place worth even stopping to check out the Star Wars section at all in my neck of the woods is Target, who at least seems to be trying (but even there, the scene is pretty sad) .  How goes it in your area?

Update: Walmart Exclusive TVC Rey (Island Journey) Hits eBay

An overseas auction for the upcoming Walmart Exclusive Vintage Collection Rey (Island Journey) #VC122 figure has surfaced on eBay (as well as the exclusive 6″ Black Series Chewbacca  and 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper). So, we’ve added the pertinent UPC and SKU info to our expanding Master List for easy reference.

UPDATE: UK collectors can preorder this figure now from In Demand Toys

Rumor Report: More Vintage Collection Figures

There is one 3.75″ Black Series figure that has been highly requested for re-release since it was so difficult to find when Walmart held its exclusivity. Collectors can breathe a sigh of relief that the Rogue One Scarif Stormtrooper will be getting the “TVC” treatment. Another character joining the collection is rumored to be Leia in Boushh Disguise. It is unknown if it’s an all-new version or repacked (from 2015) but is probably the latter as the line is balancing repacks with all-new sculpts. Expect these along side Yak Face and Klaatu in 2019*.

*I sure hope these don’t get cancelled.
