so it seems like a good time to kick off a new Rumor Report
for the Star Wars 6" Black Series
line. The info below is more to add to info others have been reporting on.
is teasing another new Gamestop Gaming Greats
figure announcement is going to be coming soon. The most likely outcome for this seems to be some kind of re-issue of the Jumptrooper Hasbro
released back in April 2019 which was also released as a Gamestop
exclusive. You can see parts of the Jumptrooper jetpack featured in the diorama art on the package of the Gaming Greats Cal Kestis
figure that was announced last month.
Next up I wanted to touch upon a rumor Yakface
recently reported on for a possible Target
exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi
figure in the works. I don't know if it's the same figure Yakface has discovered, but I have seen indications there is a new Revenge of the Sith Obi-Wan
coming in the next wave of Archive
figures, which I don't think will be exclusive to Target
. Other figures I've seen listed for this Archives
wave includes some version of Leia, Darth Revan
, and a Clone Trooper
of some type.
Finally just because we got our first look at Fennec Shand
from the upcoming Bad Batch
animated series this week, I wanted to share news that we will be getting a 6" Black Series
version of the character later this year. I ASSUME
it will be based on the live-action version played by Ming-Na Wen
, and not the animated version. Fennec
should be part of the same wave that will include Aurra Sing, General Lando Calrissian and Zero
confirmed in their last Live-Stream in January were coming. Yakface
recently reported about a Echo
figure coming, so he is likely part of this wave as well, though I have not seen any info confirming that one.
As always we will treat all of this as RUMOR
officially confirms it.
