Looks like the wait for Crait Luke is finally over – at least until next year – as last night I found info for the unannounced, but eagerly anticipated, Luke Skywalker (Crait) for the 6″ Black Series line. He appears to be part of the same wave along with Jar Jar Binks, Count Dooku, and Commander Bly which we exclusively revealed last week, but that may change since we’re so far out from release.
In case you missed them all, here are individual links to the Hasbro rumor reports we have posted over the past couple of days in reverse chronological order:
- One More Thing….
- New 6″ Black Series Figure Codes and Reveals
- New TVC Codes and a Reveal
- HyperReal Luke Skywalker
- The Skywalker Saga Two Packs
- Hasbro Interactive D-O?
- New 6″ Black Series Luke Skywalker (ROTJ)
- 6″ Black Series Yoda (Force Ghost)
- New Hero Series and Role Play UPCs/SKUs
- New E9 and Mandalorian Black Series UPC/SKUs
- Update: New TVC Vehicle
- New GOA UPCs/SKUs
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.
I managed to track down carded glam shot images for the Vintage Collection Wave 7 which includes Luke Skywalker (Crait), R2-D2 (ANH), Imperial Assault Tank Commander (Rogue One) and Death Star Gunner (Rogue One). Click on through for a closer look.
I’ve updated our UPC/DPCI/SKU Master List to include the case breakdown for the next wave (Wave 6) of Vintage Collection figures that includes Lando (Solo), Chewbacca (ANH), Stormtrooper (Rogue One), Captain Phasma (TFA) and Elite Praetorian Guard (TLJ). I’ve also completed the Walmart SKU info for TVC Wave 7 which include Luke Skywalker (Crait), Death Star Gunner (Rogue One), Assault Tank Commander (Rogue One) and R2-D2 (ANH). Click on through for the info.
It appears that even Entertainment Earth couldn’t save this from hitting clearance chains as the previous Walmart Exclusive Red Resistance A-wing has started to hit Ross stores in Los Angeles for $7.99.
Thanks to KyloCollector for the heads-up.
Update: Here’s another report sent to us via Vindiana Jones in FL
Hasbro has released new loose and carded images for wave 6 of the Vintage Collection. This wave includes Chewbacca (ANH), Lando Calrissian (Solo), Imperial Stormtrooper (Rogue One), Captain Phasma (TFA), Elite Praetorian Guard (TLJ). Click on through to check them out.
If you have a Tuesday Morning store in your area, you might want to swing by as they have been getting in The Last Jedi Force Link figures recently and selling them for the low price of $1.99. They seem to still be getting in more 3.75″ TBS ($3.99) and 6″ TBS ($6.99) figures. Their store locator is here.
