DorksideToys has shared with us a new image of the upcoming SDCC exclusive 40th Anniversary 6” Black Series Boba Fett (Kenner) figure . Note the inclusion of the E-11 Stormtrooper blaster rifle which wasn’t shown at SWCC. A nice decision as it’s more “Vintage Kenner-like” to include the Stormtrooper blaster.
Hasbro has sent out notifications to Hasbro Pulse Premium Members to reserve a spot in line for their booth at SDCC in order to purchase exclusives. First come, first served.
All reservations requests are due by Monday June 24, 2019 at 9:00 AM EST.
Thanks to YogiKai for the heads up.
UPDATE: Reservations are now full and the page removed.
Hasbro has released presentation images from Star Wars Celebration. Click on through to check out new products from the Vintage Collection, Black Series/Black Series Archive. Check back for more updates.
Entertainment Earth has announced that starting tomorrow they will be announcing their exclusive preorders* for NYCC. Watch for the Star Wars exclusive to be announced on Friday, October 5.
*First available through Entertainment Earth
Note: Entertainment Earth used the Black Series Biker Scout graphic for their exclusives banner for SDCC 2018, so don’t assume that the exclusive for NYCC is Scout Trooper related.
For those that keep track of these things whether for cataloguing or product tracking, we’ve added the UPCs for the upcoming 6″ Black Series Archive figures to our Master List of products. As you recall, Hasbro officially announced at SDCC 2018 that the Archive assortment would take popular/in demand Black Series figures and reissues them with slight updates like Photo Real technology (where applicable). These figures will be blister carded.
A couple months ago we teased what we thought was another SDCC exclusive, when in fact it was another convention exclusive. Robot Kingdom has posted the first look at that set showing a reworked Han Solo in Hoth Gear with Princess Leia in a cool Echo Base presentation/display box. Watch for an official announcement soon.
Here is just a friendly reminder that Hasbro’s convention exclusive go on sale sometime on Monday, Aug. 13. Bookmark this page for reference and make sure your order info is up-to-date for quicker checkout.

Hopefully you saw our rumor report of upcoming Vintage Collection figures we posted last week prior to SDCC. Only a few were revealed but as promised, here are the UPCs and Walmart SKUs for those figures. This should fill in some (not all) of those open slots shown on Hasbro’s slide for 2019. You’ll notice a couple absences from our initial report (Luke Skywalker, Darth Revan and Death Star Gunner) – I’ll provide those respective codes once I do a bit of double checking and cross referencing to insure their accuracy. These have been added to our Master List as well.
