Rumor Report: VC09 Boba Fett (Photo Real) Status

Back in October 2018, Hasbro announced that 5 previously released TVC figures would be reissued in the Vintage Collection with Photo Real paint applications and of those 5, only Boba Fett has been MIA. After a bit of research today, I managed to find a listing stating that the updated Boba Fett (VC09) will be in a case assortment (after waves 6 & 7) and packed with carry forwards of Chewbacca, R2-D2 and the Stormtrooper.

As with any rumor, it is subject to change and/or cancellation by the manufacturer.

Rumor Report Update: More E9 Black Series Figures Hitting EBGames System

As a followup to our report from early April, it appears there are a few more additions for the 6″ Black Series assortment for Episode 9. EBGames has updated with listings for “Dublin N Prov” and “Bruges White”. It also confirms that “London White” is an exclusive for the chain, so it could be a GameStop exclusive here in the US as well. Thanks to Audiobeing for the heads up.

Rumor Report: TVC Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise)

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.

Rumor Report: More Galaxy of Adventures Products

The biggest complaint so far with Hasbro’s Galaxy of Adventures figures is the laziness in execution stemming from the recycling of previously used sculpts for the first two waves. Things may be changing in that regard in late 2019 as more new figures are introduced as well as vehicles and beasts. What is even more interesting is that we’re hearing of a potential scale change too (comparable scale and price to the 5” Marvel Infinity War line). That would essentially mean that there wouldn’t be two competing 3.75” lines vying for collectors dollars with just the Vintage Collection remaining. Toyfair 2019 is next month so we’ll have to see how/if/when this plays out.
