Star Wars Black Series Wave 20 line-up for 2019

Yakface.com are reporting the make-up for the first wave of 2019, Wave 20 of Phase 3, is going to be made up of the following Black Series 6 inch action figures

Padme Amidala, The Battle Droid and Mace Windu will represent the prequels. These were the most recently announced figures and could indicate Hasbro have plans to expand on the prequel figures in 2019 with the 20th anniversary of The Phantom Menace.

Joining them will be the Vice Admiral Holdo figure. She was announced a good few months ago but hasn't found a slot yet and will be sole representative in this wave from the sequels. The other two figures come from Solo, A Star Wars Story. We get Han as a Mudtrooper - a figure we think will fly as it can double up as an Army Builder. And rounding off the wave is Dryden Vos.

The case of 8 will be one of each figure except Padme and The Battle Droid who will be packed two per case. While doubling up the Battle Droid is a no brainer its a shame that it wasn't the aforementioned Mudtrooper Han that got the extra figure per box?

The figures are reportedly going to be an April 2019 release - and that leave quite a gap between Wave 19 and this wave - but January / February will be filled by the first wave of the Archive Series made up of Luke Skywalker X-Wing, Boba Fett, IG88 and Bossk. There will be 8 figures to a case and therefore two of each figures.

With this confirmation of Wave 20 (still open to amendments of course) we now know that the current wave of figures hitting shelves is the last one of the year. We have therefore closed off our 2018 Black Series page and opened our 2019 page for you to peruse. We will continue to fill in the gaps on reviews and galleries as we go - including getting back on with our retro reviews from the early waves.
