Just a reminder that tickets go on sale today at 9am PT for next year’s Star Wars Celebration.
Collectors are starting to receive their wave 21 cases of 6” Black Series figures which includes the Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan) figure first offered as a Star Wars Celebration exclusive. Collector Matt Z. noticed upon opening the Obi-Wan that he doesn’t include either of the extra hand accessories from the exclusive, despite Hasbro Pulse website showing the two-figures outstretched hand in one of the loose photos.
You may recall a similar solicitation imagery mix-up with the retail 6” Bespin Han Solo being shown with the pointer figure hand which was only available in last year’s convention exclusive Exogorth Escape Set.
Bummer, I guess that will make the SWCC Version all that more desirable.
As a follow up to our original exclusive rumor report from April, we have acquired new UPCs and Walmart SKUs for the first wave of TVC figures slated to be released for Force Friday on October 4 for the official kick off of merchandise for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. Interestingly, we found info for yet another Luke Skywalker from A New Hope that has a unique UPC from the Yavin Ceremony version which we first revealed in March. This could be either the Stormtrooper Disguise or X-wing pilot figure that were revealed at Star Wars Celebration, the latter of would make sense considering the release of his TVC X-wing Fighter this year.
We have also added the E9 assortment UPC and SKU (which will change for the Vintage Collection) to our Master List as well.
Hasbro Pulse has removed the exclusive 6″ Black Series 20th Anniversary Obi-Wan and Darth Maul figures from its website.
In case you hadn’t had your fill of SWCC coverage, here is a gallery of images that I captured at Hasbro’s booth.

We’re heading to Star Wars Celebration this weekend and for those that can track me down, I’ll be giving away a few goodies. There will be two new SWCC fan badges and like Yak Face himself, they’ll be tough to acquire, especially the chase variant. You can only obtain this version via following us on Twitter and watching for our tweet revealing its location. Each badge will also include our 2019 SWCC Yak Face Collector Coin button. Remember, we’ll also be doing a Collecting Track meet-and-greet on Sunday, April 14 at 4:30pm (Room W476) where you can get our SWCC exclusive patch wedge.
I hope to see some of you there!
