More products ranging from action figures to roleplay items are currently headed to the US via China and Vietnam. An update to shipping info shows that Hasbro’s E9 Vintage Collection cases, TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony) cases, Mega Mighties, E9 Micro Force, Scream Sabers, E9 Poe Dameron blasters and Sith Trooper blasters are all en route to various ports in the US.
After searching through a couple thousand listings last night, I managed to locate info for two more basic role play masks (not helmets) for The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian. Both are no-brainer releases of course but hopefully we see something a bit more upscale in the not too distant future. The UPCs and Walmart SKUs have been added to our Master List page.
As a follow up to our previous reports, it looks like that the pricing for the rumored upcoming Luke’s X-wing and the E9 Medium Vintage vehicle are both set at $99.99 each. These are in fact two separate vehicles, each with their own product code and both are packed 2 per case.
Searching around the web again has yielded the results for a new interactive D-O from Hasbro. It is called “ULTIMATE D-O*” that is Bluetooth-controlled and is a separate product from those that we have listed previously. The Ultimate D-O has recently completed testing via the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) as required for all wireless “intentional radiator” devices sold in the U.S.

Now that we’ve all had time to calm down since SDCC and come to terms with the fact that Hasbro is severely hamstrung by Lucasfilm (which is nothing new in a summer before a film release), we are here to put some lipstick on that puffer pig and remind you of what we can expect* for the rest of the year and beyond by recapping over 30 EXCLUSIVE RUMOR REPORTS that you won’t read anywhere else, and if you do, they were likely reposted/referenced from this site (usually without attribution).
*All rumors are subject to change and/or cancellation by the manufactuer and nothing is confirmed despite evidence of such products in development and/or slated for release. Captain America, nor his ass, endorse this information.
It appears that the new droid sidekick, D-O, from The Rise of Skywalker will be getting the 10″ Funko POP! treatment as a new listing with the code name “Limerick” has surfaced in Target’s system. We first reported the code name back in February, and started compiling evidence attributing the name to D-O ever since, tying it to products for the Black Series and interactive/radio controlled droids. The DPCI for the 10″ POP is 323-01-7303 and retails for $29.99

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.
