It took some time to find public information for this one but there is another Black Series Helmet set for release and this one may tie to The Mandalorian based on the footage shown at Star Wars Celebration. Based on the stormtrooper helmet released for Rogue One, this helmet is for the Incinerator Trooper and is said to be a fan channel exclusive.
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.
StarWars.com has announced that Star Wars Celebration 2020 will be held August 27-30 at the Anaheim Convention Center and tickets go on sale June 21 at 9am PT. You can check out the ticket details at StarWarsCelebration.com.
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.
For those lucky enough to get the Celebration Exclusive 6” Obi-Wan and Darth Maul 20th Anniversary figures, Hasbro Pulse has started processing and shipping orders.
Thanks to Francisco for the alert.
