Entertainment Earth has announced that the previously Target exclusive Star Wars Retro Collection will go on sale on their website on July 23rd, 2019 at 9am PST. They will be offering all single carded figures released so far including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Princess Leia and Stormtrooper. Stay tuned to this page.
You can now find Hasbro's Black Series 6" Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) in the database. The figure is brand new and can only be purchased at Target stores in the United States. To learn more about the figure have a look here:
We've added a Black Series 6" sub-section for the Black Series Archive line to the database. The archive line, which shipped to stores in January 2019 for the first time, includes re-issues of previously available Black Series figures. Even though the figures are re-releases in this series, Hasbro took the opportunity to improve some of them through their Photo Real Face Printing technology. The first figure to make it into our database is Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot), have a look!

Steve Evans, Design Director for Star Wars at Hasbro, revealed on his Instagram account that the just announced R2-D2 for the 3 3/4" Vintage Collection next year will be released on a classic ANH card.
We did some digging and it looks as if the R2-D2 figure itself will be a re-release of the Entertainment Earth exclusive Force Link 2.0 R2-D2 figure which is packed-in with C-3PO. You can get the set here: R2-D2 & C-3PO at Entertainment Earth. For more images of R2-D2 take a look at the database entry or scroll further down.

Steve Evan's confirmed through his Instagram account that the Chewbacca figure for The Vintage Collection 2019 will be a re-release and that it will be released with the first issued classic image on the card. As you all know, the Vintage Collection is just as much about the classic packaging as it is about the figures, and since Chewbacca hasn't been released in TVC yet, this is a welcome addition (the VOTC version from 2004 used the Return Of The Jedi logo).
The figure itself looks to be a re-release of the Black Series 3 3/4" Chewbacca figure from 2015.
So we can expect something similar to what was seen below. Picture credit to Chris Fawcett's 12back.com.
Here is a comparison image with our database entry for Chewbacca:

The vehicle is compatible with Hasbro's 3 3/4" line of Star Wars figures, it is bigger and more detailed than any modern Sandcrawlers by Hasbro and it has electronics built in.
UPDATE: SOLD OUT
You can now find the TIE Fighter Pilot from The Vintage Collection in the database. The figure is packed-in together with a Tie Fighter vehicle exclusively at Walmart stores. To learn more about this set have a look here:
