News has been kind of light regarding products tying to The Mandalorian which set to debut in November of this year. But I’ve come across a bit of info that shows that a vehicle from the series will be offered in the Vintage Collection. I’m not sure if it will be out this year, but if what I’m hearing is accurate, it will be worth the wait.
Hasbro Pulse current has the new wave of 6” Black Series figures in stock.
Thanks to Adam J. for the alert.

Twitter follower Frisi sends us this report of more “collector” tomfoolery taking place with those clearance Target Exclusive 6” Lukes.
DarthChuckMC has sent us a reminder of Target’s current markdown procedures which have recently involved those 6” TBS Luke (Death Star Escape), TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) and Retro Collection figures.
DorksideToys has shared with us a new image of the upcoming SDCC exclusive 40th Anniversary 6” Black Series Boba Fett (Kenner) figure . Note the inclusion of the E-11 Stormtrooper blaster rifle which wasn’t shown at SWCC. A nice decision as it’s more “Vintage Kenner-like” to include the Stormtrooper blaster.
Hasbro has sent out notifications to Hasbro Pulse Premium Members to reserve a spot in line for their booth at SDCC in order to purchase exclusives. First come, first served.
All reservations requests are due by Monday June 24, 2019 at 9:00 AM EST.
Thanks to YogiKai for the heads up.
UPDATE: Reservations are now full and the page removed.
With the return of The Clone Wars next year it would probably be fitting to get a new clone trooper or two into collectors’ hands. You hopefully caught our report back in May of the rumored Clone Commander Bly, now there is comm chatter that there will be another Clone Commander joining the ranks and probably be a fan channel/online exclusive. There are plenty of commanders yet to be made and with the existing tooling coupled with some stellar paint work and new accessories, Hasbro should be able to knock a few out rather easily.
Just a reminder that tickets go on sale today at 9am PT for next year’s Star Wars Celebration.
It looks like that we may be receiving one of the main protagonists from the upcoming Jedi: Fallen Order game very soon by way of the 6″ Black Series line. The Second Sister Inquisitor has been on collectors’ want lists since being revealed at Star Wars Celebration and rumor has it, she’ll be available in time for the game’s launch in November. Could this be the “FO Trilla” character we’ve had on our rumored TBS list since early May? With SDCC just around the corner, we hope that we will get some confirmation on this then, if not before.
Our latest Customizer Spotlight focuses on the work of the amazing father and son customizing duo, Brian and Elias.
Just imagine if Hasbro offered a Jedi Youngling set like this! Check out their latest jaw-dropping customs after the jump!
