As we await Hasbro's next batch of official Star Wars reveals set to come next Friday, I have a new Rumor Report to share with you. Based on intel I have seen we can expect to see a 6" Black Series Carnor Jax figure released in 2021. This should be a fan-channel exclusive release which seems to be part of a theme of comic book based figures Hasbro is doing. I already told you about the rumored Jaxxon figure as well as a new Darth Maul figure also slated for the Fan-Channel treatment. Originally I thought the Maul coming was going to be from the Clone Wars Animated series, but now it's looking more like it will be based on some version from the comics. Not that I am sure that makes a big difference. There is one other figure I have heard is coming that will share this Fan-Channel exclusive comic book theme, which is a Luke Skywalker figure of some kind. I do not know at this time the exact version of Luke from the comics the figure will be based on. While Hasbro has done 3 3/4" versions of Carnor Jax before, I don't believe he is considered official Star Wars cannon any longer at this point. I don't know if that is going to change or perhaps because he is a fairly known and popular character Hasbro was able to get permission to do another figure of him. While we will treat this as RUMOR until Hasbro officially confirms it, a 6" figure of him definitely looks to be in the works. Also I don't have any idea if any of these will be confirmed on the 29th during Hasbro's next Star Wars Live-Stream event. I hope so but we will have to wait and see.
The long-rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi project may now have new life as a limited series on Disney's soon to launch streaming service, Disney+. Following the last year's disappointing box-office performance of Solo, hopes for a spin-off film based around Obi-Wan seem to have faded, but, SrarWarsNewsNet.com reports Kenobi could, instead, join Cassian Andor and The Mandalorian, as a limited (6 episodes?) series on Disney+, a streaming service said to launch later this year. Of course, until announced by Disney, this should be considered a rumor, for now.
The folks at Yakface have discovered 4 new Star Wars Black Series DPCI#'s listings in the Target system which are as follows: -087-16-4919 - Star Wars Sun - $24.99 -087-16-7462 - Star Wars Snow - $24.99 -087-16-9397 - Star Wars Rain - $24.99 -087-16-9980 - Star Wars Wind - $24.99 Obviously they are using code names to hide the identity of the actual figures. From the $24.99 price we can surmise they will be some type of specialty sub-line like the Galaxy's Edge stuff or perhaps more Credit Collection figures. I have seen indications that we are at least getting a Credit Collection version of Greef Karga and I suspect both Moff Gideon and Kuiil will get that treatment as well. Still for now we will just have to wait and wonder what those listings are for. Two figures I am pretty sure coming for the Black Series will be Rise Of Skywalker figures of Luke and Leia from their Jedi Training Flashback scene. I believe they will be general releases part of wave 6. I don't know if this is a rumor that has already been put out there, if so then just treat this as further indication the figures are coming. Of course until Hasbro officially confirms them we will treat them as RUMOR for now.
Back in March we told you about listings that had shown up online that indicated Hasbro's second wave of 6" G.I. Joe: Classified figures would include 3 non-movie figures and 3 movie figures. Last week Hasbro officially revealed that the three non-movie figures for the wave would be Gung-Ho, Red Ninja Viper and Dark Blue Cobra Commander. Note the Profit Director Destro is a Fan-Channel exclusive so it's not part of the regular wave. The same goes for the Cobra Commander Regal Variant and Arctic Mission Storm Shadow figures. They are both exclusives and not part of a regular wave. Now thanks to the overseas retailer HobbyBase, we may have word on what the three movie-based figures for wave 2 will be. Along with the new figures revealed last week, they are listing three movie figures being released in the line for Beach Head, Roadblock and Cobra Trooper. The are also listing some kind of movie based figure with motorcycle. We have recently seen a similar listing show up in the Target store systems, though at Target it wasn't listed as a movie item. If the HobbyBase listings are accurate, it's unclear if these will be figures based on the upcoming Snake-Eyes movie or if they will be based on older G.I. Joe movies. The going assumption would be for the new movie, but the character choices do seem a little odd for a Snake-Eyes origins story. Only time will tell and of course we are treating these as rumors until we get some type of further confirmation from either Hasbro or other reliable sources. Stay-tuned for more details as they become available.
