While Hasbro’s official SDCC panel starts at 2pm on Friday, July 19. Be sure to be around the day before on Thursday, July 18 as word is that a new product (or products) will be announced/confirmed. No word yet if it’s from the Vintage Collection or Black Series or from what media source (movie, TV, comics) it/they may be based.
News has been kind of light regarding products tying to The Mandalorian which set to debut in November of this year. But I’ve come across a bit of info that shows that a vehicle from the series will be offered in the Vintage Collection. I’m not sure if it will be out this year, but if what I’m hearing is accurate, it will be worth the wait.
UPDATE: Pricing I have found put this item (currently) in the $100+ range for the US.
It looks like that we may be receiving one of the main protagonists from the upcoming Jedi: Fallen Order game very soon by way of the 6″ Black Series line. The Second Sister Inquisitor has been on collectors’ want lists since being revealed at Star Wars Celebration and rumor has it, she’ll be available in time for the game’s launch in November. Could this be the “FO Trilla” character we’ve had on our rumored TBS list since early May? With SDCC just around the corner, we hope that we will get some confirmation on this then, if not before.
I managed to find info for two more 6″ Black Series figures for The Rise of Skywalker and today I added info for “Berlin Leader” and “Cairo Grater” to our expanding Master List of UPCs and SKUs for 2019 and beyond. Feel free to speculate as to the identity of these two mystery characters.
Looks like the wait for Crait Luke is finally over – at least until next year – as last night I found info for the unannounced, but eagerly anticipated, Luke Skywalker (Crait) for the 6″ Black Series line. He appears to be part of the same wave along with Jar Jar Binks, Count Dooku, and Commander Bly which we exclusively revealed last week, but that may change since we’re so far out from release.
Collectors have been clamoring for more and more 6″ Black Series Prequel figures and Hasbro has satisfied those pleas most recently with the release of Mace Windu, Padme Amidala, Battle Droid and the pending mainline version of Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan). Even with those stellar figures in collectors’ hands, they want more. I’ve discovered new info that will add 3 more characters – one from each film in the Prequel Trilogy.

Some more late night digging turned up a non-sequential UPC for an upcoming 6″ Black Series figure from The Rise of Skywalker. The figure is coded similarly to other speculated troopers with the label “E9 Bruges Rocket Pearl” – could this be the white First Order Rocket Trooper seen in those quick frames in the teaser trailer? Time will tell. Feel free to give your own theories as the the identity of this character.
There is one more thing that I neglected to mention before. Recently Hasbro decided to reissue 6″ Black Series Commander Gree as a fan channel exclusive. Don’t be too shocked if we see some other in-demand main line and previously exclusive figures make their way to collectors via fan channel releases.
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:
New info for the Vintage Collection has been a little light but I did manage to find codes for a few figures from our exclusive rumor report back in April as well as info for a another unannounced addition to the line – Princess Leia (Yavin Ceremony)*. This figure should be an update to the Walmart Exclusive version now with PhotoReal and joins the also unannounced Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony) figure we exclusively revealed back in March. All relevant UPCs and Walmart SKUs have been added to our Master List.
*Walmart lists this as E6 Ceremony which I believe is an error due to their record of other mislabeling TVC figures, especially from TVC Wave 5.
