DorksideToys has shared with us a new image of the upcoming SDCC exclusive 40th Anniversary 6” Black Series Boba Fett (Kenner) figure . Note the inclusion of the E-11 Stormtrooper blaster rifle which wasn’t shown at SWCC. A nice decision as it’s more “Vintage Kenner-like” to include the Stormtrooper blaster.
After breaking the news of the new Hyperreal line back in February, I have discovered more information pertaining to the next release and it is, not surprisingly, Luke Skywalker. What’s in question is which version of Luke it is as I originally heard is was from The Last Jedi, but new info says its from The Empire Strikes Back. That being said, originally Vader was listed as being from A New Hope, but it is now listed as being from Empire. We’ll have to see when Luke is officially announced or more leaks occur (whichever comes first). Until then, the UPC and Walmart SKU has been added to our Master List.
After a long weekend of ignoring my family* to bring you the latest rumors, we kick things off this week with info for more Hasbro product coming later this year. Remember all info is subject to change and cancellation by the manufacturer (Hasbro) and no assurances can be made as to when and where these will be available, if at all.
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.
