In case you missed them all, here are individual links to the Hasbro rumor reports we have posted over the past couple of days in reverse chronological order:
After breaking the news of the new Hyperreal line back in February, I have discovered more information pertaining to the next release and it is, not surprisingly, Luke Skywalker. What’s in question is which version of Luke it is as I originally heard is was from The Last Jedi, but new info says its from The Empire Strikes Back. That being said, originally Vader was listed as being from A New Hope, but it is now listed as being from Empire. We’ll have to see when Luke is officially announced or more leaks occur (whichever comes first). Until then, the UPC and Walmart SKU has been added to our Master List.
Amazon currently has the new Black Series Hyperreal Darth Vader listed at $49.99. And before the haters start to chime in that this is already a failure, you’ll note that this isn’t a sale – it’s the regular listing price with no discounts/savings. You can also see why our exclusive report on this figure was originally listed at this price, then revised to reflect Hasbro’s MSRP of $79.99. We’re not sure what’s going on here but if you’re at all interested in this, I suggest ordering it now to lock in the preorder price guarantee.
UPDATE: Price changed to $79.99
Brickseek has updated with an image for the Black Series Hyperreal Darth Vader that we exclusively revealed last week. As you can see, it confirms the 8″ scale. Watch for more details this weekend at Toy Fair (if not sooner).
Hasbro will soon be officially announcing a new segment of Black Series figures called “HyperReal” – rumor has it that these figures are even more articulated than the current Black Series line and they are a larger scale. For further evidence supporting the rumor of this line, we’ve had in our in our Master List of UPCs/SKUs a item called Darth Vader (E4) Action Figure with a
$49.99 $79.99 price point. Today, Brickseek updated that listing to include the Hyperreal reference and you can see it on Walmart.com shown as “SW E4 BL HYPERREAL DARTH VADER”. The dimensions of the packaging also allude to a larger scale than the current 6″ Black Series line.
More as it develops and watch for an official announcement at Toy Fair.
