For those of you like me who are annoyed at not being able to find this figure in stores, good news! It is back up In Stock on the Walgreens website.  ;D

Thanks MM!  I ordered up two to save on shipping two to too.

I bought one off Ebay for a little over $60 shipped.  I will get over my anger at every stage of this experience at some point.  Not soon though.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: Force Awakens 12"

I have seen them all over lately.  I don't think he will be hard to get if you're collecting them.  They definitely look cool, but no space for that huge scale anymore.

Are you talking 12" or 18"?

Pretty sure I have seen both.  Want me to snag or stash if I see one?  I didn't realize anyone was collecting these.

These are amazing.  I hadn't thought about using Sphero as a 12" scale fig.  Does it fit with the rest of the line?

I haven't seen much of that other stuff - had no idea there was a "premium" 4" figure market out there.  It's too bad - I really like these, but won't buy man/any at that price.  When you have people complaining about basic Hasbro figs moving from $7 to $8 and super articulated 6" figures for the same price, it's hard to stomach $20 a pop (plus tax and shipping to boot) for such a small figure.  I still might grab a few, but definitely won't be getting the full set or multiples for hundreds of dollars.  Too bad - if these were down in the $15 range I'd be comfortable buying more.

If any MN guys are planning to buy some of these, please let me know and maybe we can group order to save on shipping or something.

I can't tell you how fired up I am about missing out on Fett over the last 24 hours.  ALL of the previous releases have had product in store post raffle and online the next morning.  I could not be there for the raffle on this one.  I know it's 1PM on Monday when most of us are sitting around wondering what to do with our day, but I actually had to get work done and attend a meeting versus hanging out at super convenient MOA.  I did manage to leave work early at 3:00 in anticipation of grabbing one at either of the two Disney stores, but called ahead to find both stores completely sold out.  Having been to previous raffles, I'm sure Guy-with-his-two-infants was allowed to buy up three at a time.  Awesome.  No matter - they are always available online the next day, right?  I was up until 1am working (gotta make up for ditching work at 3PM somehow) and checked the site before bed, but no sign of Fett.  At least I went to bed confident I could order one on the site the next day. Woke up at 5:30, showered and immediately went to order some Mando awesomeness...only to find him sold out already.  WTH.  Meanwhile on Ebay, there are 55 Elite Fetts up for sale (not including the 77 that already sold for at least twice retail in the last 24 hours).  Loving the fact that every other seller has 3 or 4 of them in his picture too.  Thanks Disney!  Awesome job releasing these and preventing scalping.

$19.99 is actually pretty cheap.  It's not Hasbro afterall, so $20 for an SA figure with scads of accessories?  Color me shocked the price is that low, actually.  If you look at comparable lines around, that's not bad.

Where else are you paying $20 for 4 inch figures?   ???  I'm not saying they are overpriced, but that price point is a little steep for my collecting habits.

I thought the trailer was pretty terrible. I wasn't excited to begin with but even less so now. Lex just seems terrible, Doomsday looks like Abomination, and they revealed too much.

Well, if Wonder Woman ends up revealing too much I'm back on board...

If anyone is buying extras and selling them, let me know. :)

+1 - I don't have any KMarts anywhere near me, so if anyone comes across extra that they're willing to grab and ship, please let me know.

Remember these?  They have finally opened non-kickstarter pre-orders for the Wave 1 stuff.

These look awesome.  Stiff price point for just one figure though.  Any chance of a group/large order to bring down the cost?  Maybe a JD promotion will pop up...  ;)

Those are both really nice, fun pieces Nick.  Love the different card backs compared to the U.S. versions.  I wonder if the offer to become a Star Wars Bounty Hunter is still valid?   ;)

Hang it from the ceiling.  That's what I told my buddy to do. :)  If I were buying 6", I'd be all over that.  It's actually nicely done, and miles superior to the 4" one they did.  That thing is sad.  :-\

You'd still have to hang it in a corner or something.  I'm tempted by this thing, but I'd have to duck every time I walk under it.  Maybe when it goes on clearance...

I think it's probably due to the sheer size of the Walmart chain.  There's currently over 4,000 stores domestically.  It makes me think that distribution of these exclusive offerings takes some time.

I think there's more like 3300 Walmarts - over 4,000 if you included Sam's stores.  Walmart is actually known for having revolutionary distribution systems and they add distribution centers as the number of stores expand.  I would guess this is more of a supply side issue with either Walmart not initially ordering enough product or Hasbro not delivering quick enough.  Either way, I hope they get these up on line for us to purchase soon.

As of Dec. 31, Wal-Mart said that it operates 4,177 stores in the U.S., excluding its Sam's Club warehouse club footprint. Among them are 3,275 supercenters, which average about 182,000 square feet. This is simply too many stores, said Belus Capital Advisors analyst Brian Sozzi.Jan 31, 2014


The one-upmanship type of posts are getting really ******* tired.

Nice work missing the whole point of the post.  Re-read what you just wrote if you want an example of one-upmanship.  And stop being such a sensitive prick.
