Instagram follower Jeremy B sends us this image confirming our May report of an upcoming exclusive 6” Black Series Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure. A friend of his purchased it from a recent Disney storage sale.
Walmart was originally thought to be the retailer of this yet to be announced exclusive, but based on new info that may not be the case.
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. 🙁
Collectors who preordered the exclusive 6” Black Series Emperor Palpatine with Throne from Amazon have started receiving processing and shipping notifications for their orders. This set was originally slated for an October release but it looks to have been moved up.
Yesterday I posted via Facebook that I managed to find shipping manifest info revealing that the Vintage Collection Skiffs and Skiff Guard 3 pk. are enroute to the US from China. Now this morning, we’ve received word that processing notifications have started going out to those that preordered these items and should be expecting shipment in the next 10 days. So keep an eye on your inboxes!
Twitter follower Bossk’s Bounty has posted a YouTube review of the upcoming Walmart Exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set from Hasbro. It looks fantastic overall and looks to be a great value for the price point. The review also confirms the VC numbers for Han Solo (Carbonite) and Ree-Yees as VC136 and VC137 respectively.
