As a follow up to our original exclusive rumor report from April, we have acquired new UPCs and Walmart SKUs for the first wave of TVC figures slated to be released for Force Friday on October 4 for the official kick off of merchandise for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. Interestingly, we found info for yet another Luke Skywalker from A New Hope that has a unique UPC from the Yavin Ceremony version which we first revealed in March. This could be either the Stormtrooper Disguise or X-wing pilot figure that were revealed at Star Wars Celebration, the latter of would make sense considering the release of his TVC X-wing Fighter this year.
We have also added the E9 assortment UPC and SKU (which will change for the Vintage Collection) to our Master List as well.
Next month’s Vanity Fair will feature an in-depth first-look covering the details of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. Accompanied by photography by Annie Leibovitz, the story will give readers our best look yet at the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga. Print editions featuring two collectible covers will be on newsstands on June 4.
I managed to find info for two more 6″ Black Series figures for The Rise of Skywalker and today I added info for “Berlin Leader” and “Cairo Grater” to our expanding Master List of UPCs and SKUs for 2019 and beyond. Feel free to speculate as to the identity of these two mystery characters.
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.
Roll over, BB-8. It looks like the next interactive figure for the Hasbro line (and many others I assume) may be the new droid D-0 from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. A new listing shows an IP “Spark and Go Limerick” and I speculate that “Limerick” may be LFL code for D-O. And if that’s the case, the Black Series figure we listed earlier “London and Limerick” should be Rey with D-O. The relevant info has been added to our Master List.
Update: Spark and Go Cork added.
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 Darth Vader
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.
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.
As a follow up to our exclusive report back in January, I managed to find a UPC and Walmart SKU for the rumor E9 Vintage Collection Medium Vehicle. No word yet on what it is but I believe it is different than the rumored TVC Luke Skywalker X-wing coming later this year.
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.
Lucasfilm has revealed the official key art for the packaging that we’ll see across thousands of different products for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
