Between this blurb about Hasbro sticking UPC/tracking stickers on the figures and this post:

HTS has bothered to ship my Stormtrooper yet. They were suppose to ship on 7/29. It is still sitting at not shipped status. I think they need more trained monkeys.

It sounds like even the people who managed to get a First Order Stormtrooper from HTS are unhappy with Hasbro?  Man, they really can't win at all these days. :(

Jedi Luke is due out next week in Japan...

And Bandai/Tamashii have teased out two more potential figures in the line - Battle Droid and AOTC Clone Trooper!

That reminds me...did we ever get any more info on the next Walgreens exclusive figure out of sdcc? Wasn't it supposed to be a tweaked Vader or Emperor?

I am sure the answer will come as a complete surprise to you - Walgreens' toy buyer Steven Anne said on Twitter, "9/4/2015. That is all."  :P

So you'll have to wait a few more weeks to find out if the rumored 6" Emperor Palpatine with force lightnin is true or not...

New Details On BATMAN v SUPERMAN's Dark Knight - CONTAINS BvsS and Suicide Squad SPOILERS!

Here's Asia's supply of 6" First Order Stormtroopers -

SDCC 2015 Exclusive Star Wars The Black Series First Order Storm Trooper ($60).

These are the same guys that were used to release the past SDCC 6" figure sets to the Asia market.  In fact, they still have SDCC 2013 Fett/Carbonite ($100) and SDCC 2014 Jabba/Crumb ($90) in-stock. 

This Stormtrooper is going to be everywhere eventually.  And probably for less money.  Packaging?  It's just more cardboard to deal with.

And ultimately, that's going to bring the eBay price for this version down.  People who just want the figure will grab the regular edition and demand for the exclusive will go down. 

Not to mention that the 2015 SDCC packaged version will be sold at a convention in Germany in September, so that will put more of them into circulation after the big 9/4 glut.

Also, I thought it was free shipping over $50?

The HTS free shipping isn't an 'always' thing.  Certain times (like this week), they take it down.  I noticed that they disabled the "free ship on $50 or more" thing on Monday in preparation for today. 

Same thing with the coupon codes - those are disabled for the exclusives.  They've gotten smarter about those kinds of thing over the years, especially on shipping the large/oversized con stuff.  :-\

There are usually two more order windows that will open in the coming days - one for cancelled orders and then a second for the credit card declines.  But both will have incredibly small numbers available.

TEN minutes.  They lasted TEN minutes.  Actually, less than ten by some counts.  :o

Public Service Announcement/Reminder -

Hasbro's 2015 San Diego Comic-Con exclusives will be live on tomorrow, July 28, 2015!

There is no start time listed, so if you want a chance at the 2015 SDCC exclusives from Hasbro Toy Shop, jump on early tomorrow and be ready to wear out your F5 key!

Target "Buy One, Get One 50% Off" Star Wars Sale

Sale includes Star Wars, Frozen, Minions, MLP, Avengers, Minecraft.  Seems to include all the Hasbro stuff - 6", 3.75" stuff, etc.

Was talking to a casual collector friend last night and he reminded me about the handy shopping guide Hasbro made for us in 2008 for the CW Movie Midnight Madness launch.  He asked me if Hasbro had made one for 9/4 yet and I let him know about Disney and the wall of silence we've got this time. 

I had forgotten all about that Hasbro PDF...  maybe Hasbro will surprise us and get us something like that via Hasbro Pulse closer to 9/4?
