Remember this “rumor” report? (Click HERE to see it.) This is what we were alluding to in that post. The previously exclusive Walmart The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures can now be ordered by mainstream retailers. Diamond Distribution is now soliciting orders for Admiral Ackbar, Ahsoka Tano, Emperor’s Royal Guard, Lando Calrissian and Imperial Death Trooper and Jyn Erso for an August 31st availability date. Not available to order: Scarif Stormtrooper (SMH). Also note nothing is listed from the Ponda Baba wave either. Walmart has lost exclusivity to this line and it’s now a mainstream item. “Rumor” also has it that there will be one more wave of boxed figures on or around Force Friday II, but you never know if Hasbro will save them for The Vintage Collection instead. We’ll have to wait and see! Most importantly, take note of the MSRP. It’s a pretty “good” indicator of what to expect next year for another very important collection.
