But is it the same TIE Pilot that we'll get in the EE Excluisve 4pk?

As Bill Clinton would say, "It depends on what your definition of 'is' is." 

Fair enough on the wording, though you'd think TRU could pinpoint the go-live date for an exclusive item on the site to say a 24-hour period.  Or possibly have an option to allow for more pre-orders if the thing sells out instantly given they will be getting additional stock in stores.  Or have a limit on the number of pre-orders similar to the limits they imposed on Force Friday.  Or tell any living person working in a TRU store what the exclusive is or how to get it.  Or how about just having it up for pre-order or sale to the people that waited hours in line on Force Friday? 

I'd be game for one too.  Thanks!

That would have been a nice cost cutter!  I had $100 in Amazon rewards, so back-ordered one there.

I have the Sphero BB-8 on order, this droid is selling out fast... seems to be the toy of the year!  ;D

Where did you order from?  Is it $150 pretty much everywhere?  Disney was already sold out on FF as well. 

Thanks to Justin for the "review" of these. I grabbed a Stormtrooper and a Flametrooper. Really want a Phasma.

That Stormtrooper is awesome.  I have to recant my assessment after opening them though.  They don't really fit in with the other 6" figures at all (except BB8).  I grabbed Phasma, Stormtrooper, and Rey, and they're all just too big next to the 6" figures.  The Stormtrooper is close, but his head looks huge next to Black Series.  Rey looks like an amazon and Phasma is even bigger than the regular stormies. 

They're still cool with a ton of detail and much more articulation than I expected.  I'll probably grab a few more (OT Stormtrooper, Fett, and Vader are musts), but won't replace my BS characters with them. 

I'm probably going to order this, but holding off for now.  I like the v3 Sandtrooper, but it's just an easy repaint.  I like the black astromech, but a little pricey at $25.  The red Stormtrooper looks a little ridiculous and I really don't need a third TIE Pilot.  Add in that this is $25-30 per figure...meh.  This is one of those sets that I don't feel I'd miss much if I never ended up getting it.

I'm a little tired of clonetroopers by now, but I ordered one to get the Stormtroopers.  It's a better offering than the EE one, which is $20 more for what is essentially a bunch of repaints.

I would suspect that these will be in stores in October/November.  Don't hate yet.

My hating is based on principle at this point.  I went to the TRU Force Friday event and waited two hours, and a big reason I went there was for their "Exclusive Blue Trooper" that had been rumored.  They obviously didn't have any on hand.  There was a press release stating the Snowtrooper Officer Exclusive would be available for pre-order on 9/6 (today).  Then the figure goes up for pre-order 2 days early and sells out well before 9/6...just crappy handling all the way around.  It should have been on hand for the Force Friday event or at the very least not up for pre-order until today.  I was one of the few who really didn't mind being in the dark about Force Friday for most of the offerings, but handling of this figure could not have been any worse IMO.

I'm with the crew that somehow missed the preorder.  I was up and around all through Force Friday, so could have ordered it at 1am or while waiting for Disney to open at 5am the next day.  Silly me trying to enjoy the moment and not worry about crossing every single thing of the list when I had a free moment to think.  I should have known that a PREORDER wouldn't be available for order later in the day. 

Awesome job ruining an otherwise fun event TRU/Hasbro.   ::)

Stang.  I Was hoping the Elite figures would match up well with these, so we could pick and choose between them, but the Elite figures are more like a 7" line vs. 6" Black Series.  Captain Phasma dwarfs black series Stormtrooper.  Reminds me a lot of the Marvel Select vs. Legends sizes - just noticable enough not to work.  I'm hooked on the elite figs despite the similar size.  The Stormtrooper, for example, looks a thousand times better in Die Cast and there's tons more atriculation than I expected.

The Snowtrooper TRU Preorder is sold out?  What the hell?  I had a blast with the midnight madness stuff, but pretty pissed at TRU for how they ran this exclusive.  No sign of it in stores and no way to preorder for those that waited in line?  Then a day later its sold out?  ******* exclusives drive me nuts.

Phasma looks a little big to fit with 6" B.S. line.  Rey could fit and the BB8 looks much better, but she would dwarf 6" Leia. The Stormtrooper looks like a good fit though. Very similar sized to Hasbros.

For twice as much as you can buy them in a couple days!  Um, no thanks.

I just posted for the pictures, not as a good option to buy.   ;)

The leaks continue!  This Facebook Page has boxed pics (not the best pics, but pics nonetheless) of the first five 6" TFA figures -

01 - Finn (Jakku)
02 - Rey (Jakku) & BB-8
03 - Kylo Ren
04 - First Order Stormtrooper
05 - Chewbacca

Nice to see BB-8 as a pack-in since I know a lot of folks were not wanting to plunk down $22 for the little guy by himself...

Some nice detailed pics.  I'll be getting all five of these.
