Thanks to Matt Z. for the alert.
We’ve received multiple reports of preorders being processed from sponsor Entertainment Earth for the 6” Black Series Archive Wave 2 assortment. If you have done so, check the status of your order and watch for shipping notifications soon.
As a follow up to our report from last week, Target has updated more Hasbro product DPCIs to “discontinued” status. Items include Star Wars Resistance (basic figures and two packs), 6″ Black Series Chewbacca (Vandor-1), Solo: A Star Wars Story 6 pack of troopers, and the Galaxy of Adventures (GOA) tube figures.

@Laughing_Place via Twitter reports that the 3 new exclusive 6″ Black Series sets (along with other official Galaxy’s Edge merchandise) are now available for purchase at DTD World of Disney* which is outside of Disneyland.
I trust everyone had a relaxing Memorial Day Weekend break with family and friends. As I get caught up on my inbox of emails and social notifications, I’m seeing a ton of reports concerning delays and cancellation notices on orders from Walmart for Jabba’s Palace playset, cancellations of Amazon preorders for figures from Black Series wave 21 and TVC Skiffs, and finally, Target has changed the status of the Retro Collection DPCI to “discontinued” after only a couple of weeks of availability (if you saw them at all). I know it’s frustrating for today’s “gotta have it now” collector, but I urge you all to show restraint and NOT reward scalpers or fall victim to algorithmic pricing for any of these items as they will all be available eventually for retail price or less (at least in the U.S.). Reach out to friends and trusted acquaintances in the collector community to help fill those holes in your collection and in turn do the same for others.
I managed to find info for two more 6″ Black Series figures for The Rise of Skywalker and today I added info for “Berlin Leader” and “Cairo Grater” to our expanding Master List of UPCs and SKUs for 2019 and beyond. Feel free to speculate as to the identity of these two mystery characters.
Last night, Dan from StarWarsCollector.com noticed that the Shop Disney Parks app has updated with a slew of new merchandise for the pending launch of Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland. Among the new products are the 3 recently revealed exclusive 6″ Black Series sets (Droids, First Order, Smugglers) They are currently unavailable for purchase via the app but hopefully this is an indication that they will be available at the attraction when it opens at the end of the month.
Update: on a related note, the Shop Disney Parks app is being discontinued on May 31, 2019 to consolidate its store with the ShopDisney app.
