The fine folks over at YakFace have some interesting rumors about a few upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story toys. It seems that they have done a little digging and our confident that the initial The Black Series figure wave will include:
2x Han Solo
2x Imperial Range Trooper
1x Captain Lando Calrissian
1x Grand Moff Tarkin
1x Death Squad Commander (40th Anniv. repack)
1x Jawa (40th Anniv. repack)
Obviously the Death Squad Commander and the Jawa figures are re-packs, but it is interesting that Grand Moff Tarkin is in this wave. Could he be a make-up figure from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story? More than likely. I have my doubts that the dubious Han Solo would end up meeting Tarkin in this film, but stranger things have happened.
What do you think of this figure rollout? Leave your thoughts in the appropriate places.
