For those not wanting to resort to eBay or wanting to risk disappointment through Hasbro Pulse, for their SDCC exclusives, Robot Kingdom has all four items now available for order.
Thanks to maxofren for the heads-up.
Update: Boba Fett and Prototype Vader are out of stock
Our friends at Rebelscum have confirmed with Hasbro that plans to release Darth Revan in TVC for 2019 have been dropped. It’s possible one may be issued in 2020 but nothing definitive was indicated.
Yesterday I posted via Facebook that I managed to find shipping manifest info revealing that the Vintage Collection Skiffs and Skiff Guard 3 pk. are enroute to the US from China. Now this morning, we’ve received word that processing notifications have started going out to those that preordered these items and should be expecting shipment in the next 10 days. So keep an eye on your inboxes!
Hasbro has announced that exclusives from SDCC 2019 will be available for purchase online via Hasbro Pulse on September 10*. Each are limit 2 per customer.
*Subject to change
Hasbro Pulse updated their Instagram page with some new images of the 6″ Black Series Sith Trooper but one of those images caught my eye in particular. Due to the lack of knee pins and cosmetic differences to the heavy blaster, it appears that the above image is the TVC version of the new trooper.

We’ve almost reached the next stretch goal for our Kickstarter campaign, so we thought we’d give you a glimpse at how we’re turning a photo of a TVC Jabba the Hutt figure into the obverse side of a coin (with a few special modifications). Please note the design is not final.
If we meet the stretch goal before the campaign ends on Sunday, all book backers get a 3-coin set featuring Jabba, Boba Fett’s Slave I, and Jabba’s Sail Barge coins (in addition to all the other unlocked stretch goals). We know this is a stretch goal many of you have been hoping gets unlocked.
We also recognize that our international backers are hit with some stiff shipping charges as a result of postage rates that are out of our control. As a token of our appreciation, all book backers with an international (non-U.S.) shipping address will receive a second coin set with the 3-coins struck in a gold color. While it may not ease the burden on the shipping costs, we hope our international friends find the ultra-limited, gold-colored coins a nice addition to their collection.

Hasbro Pulse has restocked a few their TVC figures with the Rogue One Stormtrooper (limited 2) as well as the Gamorrean Guard (limit 3) and Elite Corps Clone Trooper (limit 3).
While Hasbro’s official SDCC panel starts at 2pm on Friday, July 19. Be sure to be around the day before on Thursday, July 18 as word is that a new product (or products) will be announced/confirmed. No word yet if it’s from the Vintage Collection or Black Series or from what media source (movie, TV, comics) it/they may be based.
Facebook member Darren O. reports finding a few of the Walmart Exclusive Jabba’s Palace Adventure Sets in store in San Diego, CA. He also managed to find several of the Lando Skiff Guard TVC figures as well.
Sponsor Entertainment Earth is now taking preorders for cases and sets of Vintage Collection Wave 8 which include Boba Fett (VC09) and carry forwards of Chewbacca, Rogue One Stormtrooper and R2-D2 (as we stated back in April).
