After spending a few hours searching this morning, I managed to stumble across a new listing for an unannounced Vintage Collection figure: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise). Perfect for the upcoming Barge and rumored Tatooine Skiff, right? No word yet if this is exclusive to Walmart, but based on its UPC, that is not out of the realm of possibility. Maybe we’ll learn more about this at Toy Fair next month. The pertinent info has been added to our Master List of UPCs and SKUs.
Instagram account @boxlunchbrea has posted a first look at 5 new Return of the Jedi themed POP!s from Funko. Click the image above to check out Lando Calrissian (General), Emperor Palpatine, Wicket, Princess Leia (Endor Dress) and Han Solo (Endor Trench Coat)!
Update: There is also a 6 POP! as part of this release – an electronic Darth Vader complete with light up Sith lightning effects
Entertainment Earth has opened preorders for Funko’s new ROTJ Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader Vynl Figure Set. Look for it to start shipping next month.
It’s been a while since we’ve posted regarding future figure assortments, but it looks like that the first wave of the Vintage Collection for 2019 is set as follows:
2x Saelt-Marae (Yak Face)
2x Klaatu (Skiff Guard)
2x Scarif Stormtrooper
1x Princess Leia Organa (Boushh Disguise)
1x Range Trooper
Preorders should open next month through various distributors for a January 2019* delivery.

As a follow up to last week’s report regarding Target aisle reset plans, we’ve receive word that the planogram has now been updated to include the popular Gamorrean Guard again – that will mean (at least) 3 exclusives of the shelves for October. (Gamorrean, Moloch, at Bespin Escape Leia).
Sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has the 6″ Black Series Admiral Piett figure in stock for $24.99.
Another scan through my online sources this morning has turned up a Hasbro listing for an upcoming Talking Wicket the Ewok. Price point looks to be about $20* making far less complex than the Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie figure that is hitting stores now.
*Price and availability subject to change.
Walmart has added product images for the upcoming Force Link 2 Darth Vader and Jedi Luke Skywalker figures. Of note, the Force Link app shows a different hologram/sculpt representation for Darth Vader and labels it as being from The Empire Strikes Back whereas the figure shown is obviously from A New Hope.

Following up on our 6″ Black Series 2019 report from yesterday, it’s time to check out what we can expect for some of the 3.75″ Vintage Collection figures for next year. Surprisingly there are not a lot on this following list that support Jabba’s Sail Barge. Not surprisingly there may be a fair amount of repacks again from Walmart’s exclusive releases and potentially older TVC figures. Click on through to check out what we’ve uncovered.
