Last week we exclusively revealed that there is another 6″ Black Series figure from The Mandalorian en route to the US., and after some additional digging today, I’ve been able to confirm that the character code named “BOBBY” is IG-11.
9/13: Some additional poking about has also led us to the fact that the new 6″ Black Series Luke Skywalker from Return of the Jedi (which we discovered back in May) will probably be a deluxe release and with a higher price point (similar to General Grievous) than the standard Black Series figure. Still no word on exclusivity or what extras Luke may include.
Update 9/16: Unfortunately, I cross-referenced this figure with another yet to be revealed deluxe figure. ROTJ Luke will feature a standard box size and price point release. Sorry about the mix up. 🙁
If you have a Burlington Coat Factory store in your area, it might be worth stopping by to check out their toy section. The above 2-pks are $4.99 and the 4-pack is $8.99. Good luck!
Their store locator can be found here.
A character code name has been holding out on being deciphered since we started uncovering them back in February. Our digging has accurately confirmed them all thus far, but “BOSTON” has eluded us — until now. Click on through to check out the list of all that we have deciphered so far plus the reveal of this new figure’s possible identity.
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.
Fed the Google machine today as was able to turn up manifest info showing that wave 2 of the Vintage Collection E9 launch is currently en route to the US. This wave consists of the Jawa x2, Sith Trooper* x2, Knight of Ren x1, Shadow Trooper x2 and Princess Leia (Yavin Ceremony) x1.
*Note: This is not the Sith Jet Trooper from wave 1
