Interestingly, the Wedge Antilles was solicited as being from “E5”, but there have been a lot of source designation mix ups from Hasbro in both the Black Series and Vintage Collection.

Searching around today I managed to find what maybe the first look at the solicitation imagery from CinemaSceneMarketing for theater concessions marketing for The Rise of Skywalker. It appear that the newest poster is prevalent across tubs, drink holders, as well a character cups.
Our rumor of an upcoming First Order Jet Trooper (Carbonized) “Bruges Rocket Pearl” has been confirmed thanks to an eBay auction. The figure differs from the TBS wave 23 figure as it will have a pearlescent deco and feature a special box to match. This joins the Carbonized versions of The Mandalorian and the Second Sister Inquisitor, and the yet confirmed Sith Trooper – all of which are thought to be individual exclusives for select retailer but that is just speculation until official announcements happen. The First Order Jet Trooper (Carbonized) is thought to be a Walmart exclusive.
Thanks to Alisan S. for the alert.
The new Supreme Leader Kylo Ren “Force Rage” Mask has been found on shelf at Target in San Jose, CA. The mask apparently lights up along the fused cracks when you yell through it. for Hasbro sure knows thgeir market with all this “raging” and “screaming” incorporated into their toys.
This will be available on Triple Force Friday. Thanks to spikeymikey218 for the image.

Back in April, we reported on a potential exclusive code named “Dublin N Prov” being listed in the EB Games system. Recent reveals confirm that “Dublin” is the code name for C-3PO in The Rise of Skywalker, which lead to the assumption that “Prov” or “Providence” would be R2-D2. This is not the case. Shipping info that I was able to find today, reveals that this is a two-pack of some sort with the aformentioned C-3PO and a new character named Babu Frik.
I know nothing about this new character but there must be some relationship to the protocol droid that plays out in the film. Will this be angry eyes 3PO or the “Rambo” version with additional accessories as seen on some artwork? No word yet on where this will be offered in the U.S.
Today’s sleuthing of shipping records as has revealed that figures which we’ve previously rumored are currently headed to the US.
These coded characters names include:
“Bruges Red – Metallic” – Sith Trooper (TROS)*
“Bruges Rocket – Pearl” – First Order Jet Trooper? (TROS)*
“E6 Luke Skywalker” – Luke Skywalker (ROTJ)
*The metallic and pearl designations should refer to a special deco and packaging combination for each figure.
