Via a new listing on wholesale distributors ACD Distribution, we can report that it looks like we have a new, Deluxe class Repugnus figure coming our way at some point in the not-too-distant future to complement last year’s Grotusque and December 2016’s Twinferno. The listing has no image, only details including an SKU and a UPC – 630509626991. There is a listing price of $9.99, but given the current going rate of Deluxes and the listing stating this is a “special edition”, we’d expect that to be closer to $19.99.
The same website also includes a listing of Blast Off, who has been shown a couple of times in leaks. Blast Off has an SKU one digit different to that listed for Repugnus, strongly implying both deluxes are coming as a part of a single assortment. We’d guess given past trends and the use of “special edition” we’re looking at a new “May Madness” type exclusive. For those keeping record, the UPC for Blast Off is given as 630509626977.
We’d imagine with wholesalers now getting this information, a formal announcement is likely to follow from Hasbro very soon – and as the US Toy Fair is around a month away, we’d imagine that is when we will find out more.
