Collectors have been clamoring for more and more 6″ Black Series Prequel figures and Hasbro has satisfied those pleas most recently with the release of Mace Windu, Padme Amidala, Battle Droid and the pending mainline version of Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan). Even with those stellar figures in collectors’ hands, they want more. I’ve discovered new info that will add 3 more characters – one from each film in the Prequel Trilogy.

Hasbro Pulse has removed the exclusive 6″ Black Series 20th Anniversary Obi-Wan and Darth Maul figures from its website.
For those lucky enough to get the Celebration Exclusive 6” Obi-Wan and Darth Maul 20th Anniversary figures, Hasbro Pulse has started processing and shipping orders.
Thanks to Francisco for the alert.
The digging continues today and has yielded info for what is described as a “SW RP Scream Saber“. This may be the super-secret lightsaber that was shown off at Star Wars Celebration Chicago last month. As a bit of a bonus, additional sleuthing turned up an IMDb profile for an actress (Aymee Michel) who posed as a packaging model for a product called the “Hasbro Scream Saber”.
Relevant UPC info has been added to the role play section of the Master List.
It looks like after The Rise of Skywalker this December, we will be waiting until December 2022 for the next theatrically released film:
Untitled Star Wars 12/16/2022
Untitled Star Wars 12/20/2024
Untitled Star Wars 12/18/2026
No word yet if this is the Rian Johnson or the Benioff/Weiss trilogy
Some more late night digging turned up a non-sequential UPC for an upcoming 6″ Black Series figure from The Rise of Skywalker. The figure is coded similarly to other speculated troopers with the label “E9 Bruges Rocket Pearl” – could this be the white First Order Rocket Trooper seen in those quick frames in the teaser trailer? Time will tell. Feel free to give your own theories as the the identity of this character.
Target.com is also processing and shipping pre-orders for their exclusive TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) figure. Check your inboxes for notifications.
GameStop is now taking preorders for the Exclusive POP! Boba Fett (Animated) figure from Funko. Estimated arrival date is July 31.
Look for order processing/shipping notifications for the Target Exclusive 6” Black Series Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) to start hitting your inboxes
There is one more thing that I neglected to mention before. Recently Hasbro decided to reissue 6″ Black Series Commander Gree as a fan channel exclusive. Don’t be too shocked if we see some other in-demand main line and previously exclusive figures make their way to collectors via fan channel releases.
