New “Solo” Force Link 2pk Info Found

One of the listings that we posted last week for the Force Link 2pks for Solo: A Star Wars Story has been updated. It now includes the description: “SWU S2 Hermes and Perseus Guard” and, as we deciphered the other day, “Hermes” is the code name for “Lando Calrissian”. This marks the first Force Link character we’ve been able to confirm for the 3.75″ Force Link/SWU line for Solo. The pertinent info as been transferred to our Master UPC/SKU page found over in the right column of the site. Stay tuned for more details as we find them.

UPDATE: Perseus Guard = Kessel Guard

Before She Was the Fastest Hunk of Junk in the Galaxy

“What a piece of junk!”
“She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid”
“This bucket of bolts is never gonna get us past that blockade”
“Then we just float away…” “…with the rest of the garbage”
“She’s the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy”
“The garbage will do”
“Blast that piece of junk out of the sky!”

The Millennium Falcon has always been the subject of mockery in terms of its appearance, but there was a time when the Falcon was all-new. Han said he made some “special modifications” and soon we’ll get to see what it looked before Han took ownership.  With Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out in a few months, be prepared to start seeing a fresh, slightly sleeker depiction (and a slightly different silhouette) for one of the most iconic starships in film. And as you’d expect, we’ll be seeing a wide range of toys and collectibles from Hasbro, Mattel, LEGO and more as well.

Update: Rumor Report: 6″ Black Series “Solo” Wave (16)

We’ve been doing a bit more digging over the weekend in order to try to shore up the breakdown for first wave of 6″ Black Series figures set to launch in April for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Like previous launches, the wave will feature figures from different film sources, not just Solo. Based on an image I’ve seen and what’s been deciphered from the code names, the wave breakdown should be as follows.

2x Han Solo
2x Imperial Range Trooper
1x Captain Lando Calrissian
1x Grand Moff Tarkin
1x Death Squad Commander (40th Anniv. repack)
1x Jawa (40th Anniv. repack)

Update 2/23/18: Death Squad Commander will now be designated “Death Star Trooper” and have Photo Real face printing.

Rumor Report: What We Know For Solo

With The Last Jedi in the rear view mirror for many, we can continue our focus to products for Solo: A Star Wars. As a refresher, we revealed through several articles (below in reverse chronological order going back to October) new products from Hasbro and Mattel.

Stay tuned for a more accurate breakdown of the first wave (wave 16?) of 6″ Black Series figures that will include characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story very soon.

Also, a friendly tip: 99% of the products with UPCs that we have shared over the months, can be found directly on Amazon.com and Walmart.com with a little app-fu and the barcode scanner built into their respective apps. You’re welcome :).

UPDATE: New Force Link Solo Figure 2 Packs
