A character code name has been holding out on being deciphered since we started uncovering them back in February. Our digging has accurately confirmed them all thus far, but “BOSTON” has alluded us — until now. Click on through to check out the list of all that we have deciphered so far plus the reveal of this new figure’s possible identity.
We’ve received and read several reports of collectors receiving their shipments of convention exclusives from Hasbro Pulse with varying degrees of damage. Boba Fett with crushed blisters, Jedi Legacy packs with folded over/creased upper tabs due to being packed into small of a box, and Sith Trooper boxes crushed or torn. Hopefully these reports are in the minority, especially with the lengths collectors had to go through to even be able to order them (aside from the Luke Set).

Fed the Google machine today as was able to turn up manifest info showing that wave 2 of the Vintage Collection E9 launch is currently en route to the US. This wave consists of the Jawa x2, Sith Trooper* x2, Knight of Ren x1, Shadow Trooper x2 and Princess Leia (Yavin Ceremony) x1.
*Note: This is not the Sith Jet Trooper from wave 1
Hasbro has made great strides in the quality of the action figure likenesses with the advent of photoreal. This comparison of the first Rey Black Series figure to the new one for The Rise of Skywalker is proof of it. What a difference four years can make!
