Looks like Hasbro’s dipping back into the orange line 3.75″ Black Series again as a new listing has popped up on Walmart.com via Brickseek for a Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony) figure for the Vintage Collection. No word yet on exclusivity. On a related note, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a 6″ version of this figure before too long.
Snooping around on Brickseek (as I do), I found a new listing for a Black Series helmet that may be exclusive to Walmart. The item is referenced in such a way that it could be from Solo: A Star Wars Story. Not sure what it may be (Range Trooper? or Patrol Trooper?) or if it’s still coming at all. More details as I find them…
SDCC is almost upon us and we’re that much closer to getting some “official” confirmations of upcoming products we’ve been revealing for this year and beyond. That said, I ran a few UPC through my local Target scanners and snapped a couple images showing that the 6″ Black Series Moloch “Cronos” ($29.99) and 6″ Bespin Leia ($19.99) are showing up in Target’s system (outside of Brickseek). Click the image above for the evidence.
Upon further UPC checking on Brickseek today, I managed to find a new assortment of Micro Force vehicles. Click on through to check our Luke with Snowspeeder, Rey with Speeder and AT-AT Commander with AT-AT Walker. UPCs have been added to our Master List and individual page links on our Amazon Influencer page.
Based on some intel and cross-referencing of our recently acquired UPCs from Brickseek, it looks like Target may get yet another exclusive 6″ Black Series figure. Based on the above UPC/DPCI and its code name of “Chronos”, we surmise that it is White Worm member, Moloch. With the figure’s large size, it also slots into a larger price point of $29.99.
Chalk this up as an unconfirmed rumor for now until officially confirmed by Hasbro or when it shows up online, which ever comes first. Info has been added to our Master List as well.
Thanks to BP with the assist on this smuggled information.
Back in February a leaked image was floating about showing a 3.75″ scale TIE FIGHTER heading to the Force Link 2 line from Hasbro. Surprisingly, it didn’t drop with the release of the first wave of Solo merchandise, but we can now report, thanks to Brickseek, it is coming soon. Slotted in as the first “Class C” vehicle for this line look, the price is expected to be $39.99. Due to the angle of the leaked image, it is unclear if this is the standard TIE or the cool TIE BRUTE that we briefly saw during the pursuit in the maelstrom, but I’d expect the standard TIE configuration based on products already released by Mattel and LEGO. The UPC, DPCI and Walmart SKU have been added to our Master List. Expect to see the first images of this at SDCC (if not sooner).
Based on our report this morning and after some additional digging on Brickseek it looks like that rumored* Target Exclusive 6″ figure will be Princess Leia (Bespin Outfit). As stated earlier, price point is set at $19.99 and has an estimated availability of early August. The assigned UPC and DPCI codes are provided in the image above and have been added to our Master List.
*All rumors are unofficial and the availability is subject to change.
Update: 7/19/2018 – figure confirmed as Leia (Bespin Escape)
Over the holiday weekend, a member of a local MN toy group (MN Toy Posse on Facebook) found the new Black Series Darth Vader Helmet marked down to $75 at Walmart. If you are checking in your area for similar sales use UPC 630509607358 via Brickseek
Per our rumor report from April, we have secured (via Brickseek) the UPCs and Walmart SKUs for 4 upcoming 3.75″ figures for the Vintage Collection. We’ve also added this info to our Master List and added links on our Amazon page. Continue the “Vintage Conversation” in our comment section or our forums.
