You may have caught this rumor/tease of ours back in June. Hidden with the article you can make out the italicized letter “FOX” and now it appears that you can preorder this figure at your local GameStop thank to an image from @kylocollector courtesy of kixin_around.
UPDATE: GameStop has apparently stopped taking in-store preorders for this figure. No word as to when they may resume. Thanks to those who left comments regarding this new development.
Images confirming our recent rumor reports of the 6″ Black Series The Mandalorian (Carbonized) have surfaced via Instagram.
This was found at a Target in Georgia, thanks to Toyshiz for the heads up.

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.
We’ve received and read several reports of collectors receiving their shipments of convention exclusives from Hasbro Pulse with varying degrees of damage. Boba Fett with crushed blisters, Jedi Legacy packs with folded over/creased upper tabs due to being packed into small of a box, and Sith Trooper boxes crushed or torn. Hopefully these reports are in the minority, especially with the lengths collectors had to go through to even be able to order them (aside from the Luke Set).

It appears that Target will be receiving an exclusive 6″ Black Series figure for the launch of merchandise on Triple Force Friday. An entry in their system lists a figure “Huck1 Copper” with a price point of $24.99. Based on what we know on code names, this is The Mandalorian and based on the leaked “Graphite” version of the Second Sister Inquisitor, the figure and packaging will probably feature a copper-like finish as well. For those keeping track, this will make another known variant joining Graphite, Pearl, and Red Metallic.
Thanks to TargetGod for the intel.

Although today was stated by Target’s corporate site as the release date for the Retro Collection Prototype Darth Vader, most stores have not received any of these figures. Fortunately a check this morning via the Target website at a store in Ocean, NJ yielded 34 of them. Some were set in the Funko section and two pegs worth in the Star Wars section. Best of luck to those on the hunt and thanks to Jonathan R. for the hook up.
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.
