Luke Skywalker (Dagobah) has won Hasbro’s TESB 40th Anniversary Fanvote for the next 6″ Black Series figure offered on the Vintage style cardback.
Hasbro Pulse via Instagram is now taking votes for what figure collectors would like to see immortalized in the 6″ Black Series line for the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. Voting closes Friday, March 8.
Feel free to leave your comments here as well for the 10 they have selected.
After an extensive search online, we’ve located and added the UPCs and Walmart SKUs for the second wave of 6″ Black Series Archive (BSA) figures to our 2019 Master List of products. As you recall, Hasbro officially announced back in October at NYCC 2018 that wave 2 would consist of Anakin Skywalker, Yoda and the Biker Scout/Scout Trooper. Darth Maul* on the other hand has been on our rumor lists for a while and based on the UPC info found above, we now have Maul’s accurate (yet unofficial) confirmation. Case breakdown isn’t known at this time but we can guess that it will be similar to Wave 1 with a 2x pack out.
*Note: the image for Maul is not of the actual BSA figure.

Speculation has been swirling like an icy wind around the possible Black Series exclusives for this year’s SDCC and we believe we have some frozen solid details for the first of three potential offerings. Echoing back to previous years, SDCC exclusives are often based on what’s come, and that holds true here, but it also pulls in another figure from out of the blue (with a fresh new face). Although not entirely scene accurate, the presentation may get you all mushy over it.
