If you are looking to bolster your Death Trooper ranks in preparation for The Mandalorian or missed out on them when first issued on the TVC card back, sponsor DorksideToys has added them back to their site for preorder. Look for them to start arriving toward the end of July.
News has been kind of light regarding products tying to The Mandalorian which set to debut in November of this year. But I’ve come across a bit of info that shows that a vehicle from the series will be offered in the Vintage Collection. I’m not sure if it will be out this year, but if what I’m hearing is accurate, it will be worth the wait.
UPDATE: Pricing I have found put this item (currently) in the $100+ range for the US.
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
Finally for reveals today (maybe) is a drop of some new UPCs/SKUs for upcoming 6″ Black Series figures. If you’ve follow our rumors and hints here and on social media for a few months, the first two on the list above won’t be a surprise. Note “LA” codes probably stand for “live action” for characters from The Mandalorian. All codes have been added to our Master List for quick reference.
The finds continue as I managed to local 8 new UPCs and Walmart SKUs for upcoming Black Series figures for The Rise of Skywalker, Jedi Fallen Order and The Mandalorian. Based on what I’m finding for new product, I think it is now safe to assume that the code “Oslo” is for Kylo Ren. More on that soon….
Update: “FO Cal” is Cal Kestis from the new game Jedi: Fallen Order
Update 2: Thinking linguistically, La Huck may be the female form of the code, and it would be Cara Dune.
During Disney’s Investor Day Webcast, they revealed that the official launch date for Disney+ will be November 12. With that, the new Lucasfilm series, The Mandalorian will also be available. Subscription costs for the Disney+ service launches at an attractive $6.99 per month.
