Look for order processing/shipping notifications for the Target Exclusive 6” Black Series Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) to start hitting your inboxes
Finally for reveals today (maybe) is a drop of some new UPCs/SKUs for upcoming 6″ Black Series figures. If you’ve follow our rumors and hints here and on social media for a few months, the first two on the list above won’t be a surprise. Note “LA” codes probably stand for “live action” for characters from The Mandalorian. All codes have been added to our Master List for quick reference.
After breaking the news of the new Hyperreal line back in February, I have discovered more information pertaining to the next release and it is, not surprisingly, Luke Skywalker. What’s in question is which version of Luke it is as I originally heard is was from The Last Jedi, but new info says its from The Empire Strikes Back. That being said, originally Vader was listed as being from A New Hope, but it is now listed as being from Empire. We’ll have to see when Luke is officially announced or more leaks occur (whichever comes first). Until then, the UPC and Walmart SKU has been added to our Master List.
After a long weekend of ignoring my family* to bring you the latest rumors, we kick things off this week with info for more Hasbro product coming later this year. Remember all info is subject to change and cancellation by the manufacturer (Hasbro) and no assurances can be made as to when and where these will be available, if at all.
For those looking to complete the Retro Collection carded set, Target.com is now has the Escape From Death Star Game with Exclusive Grand Moff Tarkin available for purchase.
I managed to track down carded glam shot images for the Vintage Collection Wave 7 which includes Luke Skywalker (Crait), R2-D2 (ANH), Imperial Assault Tank Commander (Rogue One) and Death Star Gunner (Rogue One). Click on through for a closer look.
Hasbro will soon be officially announcing a new segment of Black Series figures called “HyperReal” – rumor has it that these figures are even more articulated than the current Black Series line and they are a larger scale. For further evidence supporting the rumor of this line, we’ve had in our in our Master List of UPCs/SKUs a item called Darth Vader (E4) Action Figure with a
$49.99 $79.99 price point. Today, Brickseek updated that listing to include the Hyperreal reference and you can see it on Walmart.com shown as “SW E4 BL HYPERREAL DARTH VADER”. The dimensions of the packaging also allude to a larger scale than the current 6″ Black Series line.
More as it develops and watch for an official announcement at Toy Fair.

Update: I cross referenced the wrong price point. They will be closer to $80
Let’s start the new year off with what I think is the UPC/DPCI/TCIN info for the upcoming Target Exclusive 6″ Black Series Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise/Trash Compactor) figure. This info is not 100% confirmed at this point but some searching and cross referencing has pointed me to this conclusion. If anything further develops, we’ll post a confirmation.
Tamashii Nations has updated the SHFiguarts pages for their Star Wars products to include new details and images for their Princess Leia Organa (A New Hope ) figure. Click on through for the image gallery and watch for its availability in December.
