I just have to throw my 2 cents in on this. One more time:   I will never try to convince anyone to like 5 POA if they don't. It's an aquired taste. But as far as pricing goes, they are at the sa

So Black Series Luke's multiple hair colors bugged me. For every new figure, there was a new take on his hair color. I went and customized my Jedi and Bespin Lukes so that they match. When two diff

I got my Lando and Sand People figures today. Both are amazing! I love that you can interchange spear heads on the Sand Person's spear. Lando's cape works very well, I'm a soft goods lover but the

I need a regular stormtrooper

 

 

Those guys are starting to show up more and more. I've probably seen about 10+ in the wild since their release.

 

That's another reason not to get too upset if you're not immediately seeing Vader and Co. at Walgreens (besides the fact they they will get a general retail release eventually). History has shown they've done a good job of rereleasing these key characters in the past and they've already started with certain characters in the 6".

It seems to me that the Locator tool on the website might be incorrectly listing the entire wave counts for the Boba Listing. I have been to several local Walgreens and found only one Boba even when the locater listed others.

 

I've seem a few Vaders and Lukes and Chewies but only the one Boba.....

Does anyone know why it's taking online stores so long to get the Vader/Chewie wave in? BBTS originally said they would be available in August, and then it was changed to September. Well, we're over halfway through September, and they're still not in stock. What gives?

 

I'm anxious to get my Vader!

Not exactly sure, but I am finished with preorders. This Vader wave is one of three now that I have found at retail long before they are in stock. Like I had said before. EE has pushed the Anakin / Clone Trooper wave back until November! Who knows how long it will be before they have the Vader wave.

 

I know BBTS is better than EE and already have the Anakin wave in stock, but I would say that it will be sometime in October before they have Vader.

Stopped off at a WG's near my house on the fly.....they had nada.....sold out....then went to pick up some grilled chicken tacos fah dinner at a taco place farther down the road...& whatta you know, there's a WG's next door to that place.....(I knew this but my lady didn't) so we wandered over there to have a looksee....the manager there was starting the reset....he had the tubs out & scattered, I inquired about the figs but he wasn't letting me purchase anything till he was done w/his reset which is what the other store (near my house) manager told me last Saturday....& I missed out cause that manager there wouldn't tell me when the reset day would be or take my name or number which was fine she didn't want my $, I'll give to another store....anewayyss I was waiting around till this manager got called away or had to use the bathroom so I could swoop in & buy those toys that will be available in 2 hours but not available at that time......I didn't know WG's was in business not to make $, that trait is very rare these days.....so the guy finally answered the call of the bladder & I quickly rummaged through one tub & came away w/my Darth Vader!....just need a Luke & Chewie & I'm doneski.....Vader's beautiful black visage is gracing my computer desk at home......

I got burned on pre orders a long time ago. Every time I did one I found the figs well in advance.

Just a heads up, if you use the promo code "super20" at hasbrotoyshop, you get 20% off your order, along with free shipping on orders over $50. They have Stormtroopers and Speeder Bikes available for preorder.

I always liked those Shardimus Prime reviews. Glad there's someone else out there who thinks Vader's awesome.

I apologized and tried to make amends for my Vader hate once I opened him! :)

 

Shardimus said the same thing about the eyes though. Both with Vader and Jedi Luke.

 

After reading some of the new figures reports (IG-88, Commander Cody, etc.) and seeing the SDCC stuff, I am jut wondering if Hasbro will ever get around to making more Jabba badies!

 

I would love to see a Bib Fortuna... a Gamorrean Guard! Also, since we are getting vehicle and creature type packs (Luke / Wampa, Han / Tauntaun, Shadow Squadron), do you think there will ever be an actual Jabba's throne accessory of any kind? I know the SDCC Throne Room box is cool and all, but I want something made out of plastic that you can hold and pose your figures on. Maybe with the pillows and such like the 3 3/4" Walmart exclusive had? Maybe Bib Fortuna could come with it? Would you guys buy something like that, or is that something you would rather live without?

If given enough time I'm sure the answer will be yes. They're all going to get made.

 

One more point on Shardimus reviews, he touched briefly on the lack of a robe with Jedi Luke and that's one reason I passed. I think Hasbro held off on that on purpose so they can sell another one down the line. There's no way they're not going to do another one eventually. That's the one I'm holding out for.

Here are a couple from a seller on ebay that I learned about via a fwoosh article:

I think these all look pretty good for soft goods, and I'm not normally a fan of them.
