Huck and Sawyer... my guess is Dagobah Artoo for one

Jayson believes they are Beskar Mando and Gideon.

Did a little digging, and I think "Huck 2" is almost certainly Din Djarin, aka The Mandalorian.  And I'm thinking that this version is probably in the updated Beskar armor.  Huck 1 was the Mandalorian, and Huck 1 Copper was the carbonized version.

"Sawyer" is probably a code name for another character from The Mandalorian.  I haven't been able to track anything down about the exact character though.  Moff Gideon?  Maybe, but I haven't been able to find a complete list of character code names from the show.

*scans rumor list*

Han Solo (Return Of The Jedi)

Always happy to see a new Han Solo for my collection... wonder if that's Endor Coat Han or Jabba Palace/Hibernation Sickness Han?

One Ewok? And itís Teebo? Weird.

Those would have been ideal for some kind of multipack.

He's probably right, usually is.  I figured Huck and Sawyer went together (same source material).

Could also be Dry Clothes Skiff Han? Can't see them doing Jabba's Palace without including the Carbonite block, which would make it a deluxe figure. But my money is on Endor Coat considering there's an Endor Leia there too

I'm hoping for Endor versions of the big 3 - Han with trenchcoat/duster, Luke with helmet & poncho, Leia with helmet & poncho.  Those seem like they would go along with the Ewok in the rumor.

Iím all for that. ROTJ, specifically Endor, has been severely lacking in this line so far. I get it though too, everything kind of gets itís time. This year, it is Empire and the prequels largely, at least for the first part of 2020. Iíd be down for the Endor trio though, and a handful of Ewoks while we are at it.

Yakface has quite the rumor report today.  And some great hints, Jayson!

Quote
Last week I posted word of a handful of potential exclusives coming from Hasbro in late 2020. Today I can publish 10 hints to aid in your speculation.

For this group of 5 exclusives:
-None are clone characters
-None are Jedi/or former Jedi characters
-None are members of The Ghost crew characters
-None are PT characters
-None are OT characters
-None are ST characters
-One item is TVC
-One figure is an alien
-One is a vehicle
-Two items have never been released by Hasbro before
-All five are related by their source material

As I mentioned in the previous report, it will be interesting to see how these are distributed due to the cancellation/closure of large venues.

Running through this somewhat backwards?
-It sounds like some of these items were going to be summer convention exclusives (SDCC & Star Wars Celebration, notably)
-Based on the hints I think the source material is almost certainly THE MANDALORIAN

From this point I think it's a guessing game, but here are my guesses:

-VINTAGE COLLECTION - Din Djarin / The Mandalorian (Beskar armor w/ rocket pack)
-BLACK SERIES ALIEN - Kuiil
-BLACK SERIES FIGURE - Mandalorian Armorer
-BLACK SERIES FIGURE - Incinerator Stormtrooper
-BLACK SERIES FIGURE & VEHICLE - Imperial Speeder Bike (white deco) & Scout Trooper

I think I checked all of the boxes, but again these are ALL guesses.

Hasbro has done a couple of TVC multipacks at SDCC recently, so I wonder if that could be a possibility. If it's based on The Mandalorian, that opens a lot of possibilities. They also like to include figures that later come out at retail so I'm going to say the TVC item is a three-pack that includes Mando (Beskar Armor), The Child and someone else - IG-11, Kulil, Incinerator Trooper, depends on how crazy they want to get on tooling.

I didnít want to muddy up the Archive Vote thread with this, but honestly Iíd take Archive face scanned redos of pretty much all the old ANH figures weíve gotten. Since the new face techniques started up, those have really started looking out of place. It would at least be nice to see the trinity of Han, Luke, and Leia get this treatment at the very least. Heck, put them in a three pack if you have to. ďHeroes of the RebellionĒ
