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.
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.
Pal Flyguy from Flyguy.net reports that some AMAZing site has leaked the unofficial reveal of an upcoming 6″ Black Series Emperor Palpatine with Throne AND interchangeable heads! Price is said to be about $40 (US).
As a follow up to our Black Series report from Monday, we’ve found a few more product details, this time for the Vintage Collection — some from Episode IX, plus 2 rumored E4 characters and one from the EU. Click on through for the breakdown.

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.
There is one glaring absence in a certain crew of rebels that will be filled sometime in late 2019. If you’ve followed along with some of the other rumor articles or through various Black Series groups on Facebook, you’ll know the answer. If not, you won’t have to go far.
As a follow-up to our rumor report (and hints) from November 2018, word is we can look forward to (at least) 3 vehicles at retail for the Vintage Collection in 2019. Two are Original Trilogy related and the third is from Episode IX. More as we learn more…
We have what I think is a fun little exercise in “guess the Black Series figures” coming out in 2019. I’ve posted a series of 12 clues after the break to help narrow the field to the 3 characters. Ready? Set? Guess!

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.
