Rumor Report: New 6″ Black Series Figure Codes and Reveals

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.

Rumor Report: New Hero Series and Role Play UPCs/SKUs

Finally, I managed to find several listings for 12″ Hero Series figures as well as role play items, when cross referenced with each other, they may confirm that Kylo Ren’s LFL product code name is “Olso”.

12″ Hero Series
E9 “Bruges Red”
E9 “Oslo”
E9 Darth Vader

Role Play
E9 “Oslo” Mask (Kylo Ren?)
E9 Stormtrooper Mask
E9 Darth Vader

The relevant UPCs and Walmart SKUs have been added to our Master List for your reference.

Rumor Report: New E9 and Mandalorian Black Series UPC/SKUs

The finds continue as I managed to local 8 new UPCs and Walmart SKUs for upcoming Black Series figures for The Rise of Skywalker, Jedi Fallen Order and The Mandalorian. Based on what I’m finding for new product, I think it is now safe to assume that the code “Oslo” is for Kylo Ren. More on that soon….

Update: “FO Cal” is Cal Kestis from the new game Jedi: Fallen Order

Update 2: Thinking linguistically, La Huck may be the female form of the code, and it would be Cara Dune.

Rumor Report Update: More E9 Black Series Figures Hitting EBGames System

As a followup to our report from early April, it appears there are a few more additions for the 6″ Black Series assortment for Episode 9. EBGames has updated with listings for “Dublin N Prov” and “Bruges White”. It also confirms that “London White” is an exclusive for the chain, so it could be a GameStop exclusive here in the US as well. Thanks to Audiobeing for the heads up.

Rumor Report: New LFL Code Names

As you know, the characters from The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi, and Solo, were shrouded in secrecy with the use of code names. For Episode IX and The Mandalorian, that practice continues. I found out a few of these a while ago and waited for a little more corroboration but now that the Toy Fair dust has settled a bit, I feel now would be a good time.

For Episode IX, code names revolve around famous cities, like London, Oslo, Bruges, Limerick, and Boston. As for The Mandalorian, I’ve only seen one name referenced thus far and that is “Huckleberry”.

How these names are assigned to the characters has yet to be deciphered, but I would think it’s safe to assume that The Mandalorian may be “Huckleberry”. More as we learn more…

Update: Rumor Report: Force Friday 2019

While the final cinematic chapter in the Skywalker story draws to a close in December 2019, there will (once again) be a huge marketing push and global launch for products for Episode IX. Rumor has it that this date is set a bit closer to the film launch than the previous installments — October 4, 2019. Barring leaks and official early first looks and preorders, this will be the hard street date for the copious amount of licensed products (toys, books, clothing, etc.) from not only Episode IX but from other sources throughout the franchise as well.

And yes, you can expect us to assemble our downloadable “unofficial” checklist for this event as well.

UPDATE: also of interest, Star Wars will be sharing a merchandise launch date with another popular and highly anticipated sequel. If you have young kids like I do, hopefully that won’t cause your bank accounts and credit cards to be Frozen, too.
