TBS Rumor Report Update: No Dooku, Yes Sidious for Fan Channel Wave 3

As a follow up to our Rumor Report back in January regarding the return of Count Dooku to the Black Series line, infomation that I have found indicates that was inaccurate and the figure is actually the pipelined Darth Sidious. Sidious will be packed alongside the single packed Super Battle Droid and both figures are fan channel exclusives (like Padme, Anakin, Ki-Adi-Mundi and Phase I Clone Trooper) as they are part of the Prequel “mini-beat”.

TBS Rumor Report Update

We had hinted at these in various IG posts and comments as well as on our master list but Jedi Aayla Secura, Ki-Adi Mundi and ARC Trooper Jesse will be joining the Black Series next year with Ewok Celebration Leia, Figrin D’an and New Republic Security Droid. (Not sure at this time of the Jedi will be from AOTC or ROTS) 

Thanks to JediInsider for the wave details.

No Update on Walgreens Exclusive 6″ TBS 212th Battalion Clone Trooper

Collectors have been anxiously awaiting some sort of update on the official release/preorder of the Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series 212th Battalion Clone Trooper announced last week. So here’s a “non-update” update: as of today, Walgreens still doesn’t have this in their system – neither online nor in-store.

If we use the last Walgreens exclusive as a guide, the 6″ Phase I Clone Trooper Lieutenant never went up for preorder either. It was leaked on August 18, 2020, officially announced on August 21, and then went online for purchase (not preorder) a month later on September 18. I wouldn’t be surprised if something similar happened for the new 212th Clone Trooper.
