Rumor Report: 6″ Black Series Archive Wave 2 Codes

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.

Only a few were revealed but as promised, here are the UPCs and Walmart SKUs for those main line figures. These have been added to our Master List as well. Watch for our UPC update regarding the rumored and revealed Vintage Collection figures soon.

 

Toyguide Update: MH15 Darth Maul

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the next addition for the 2012 “Darth Maul” product line. We continue with another “new” figure in the Movie Heroes assortment: Darth Maul

PROS: Nice head sculpt and facial deco. Action feature does work well making this a fine “toy”.

CONS: Sub-standard articulation at is what is now a “premium price”. You’ll spend about as much time playing with this figure as he had screen time in Episode I.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

Toyguide Update: VC84 Queen Amidala

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Queen Amidala (VC84) from The Vintage Collection.

PROS: This particular figures scratches one of the often-requested costumes  off the “must have” list for Padmé. There is an amazing amount of detail in the sculpt itself and the likeness is spot on with Natalie Portman. Hasbro even went the extra mile to sculpt her some real (non-articulated) legs that are far more detailed than necessary but nice none the less.

CONS: The articulation, while generous, is completely unnecessary for a figure of this type. Posing of the arms in any position other than straight down looks “funny” due to the plastic sculpt of sleeves.
