Just created a Jedidefender group...I guess I am a Rebel base though

My two oldest boys got 7" Kindle tablets for Christmas and this game was one of the first things they added to their new tablets.  The one who picked the Rebel side just joined up with the Jedidefender squad, so be nice to him. :P (rebelfighter54).

Delayed til Feb 2016  :-\

Just got an Amazon email that my new estimated delivery date is Tuesday, January 12th.

All three (Kanan, Ahsoka, Luke) were revealed at SDCC last summer (pics here).  Luke is ANH Farmboy version.

Just an FYI that I moved the "I hate the fact that Walmart is carrying these" / "I hate the fact that is not carrying these" discussion over here to clean up the Wave 3 thread a bit.  Feel free to continue bagging on Walmart here as needed. ;)

Don't mind me, just adding some sponsor links. (Trying to keep the lights on here for the new year, you know. ;))

Just an FYI that this is back up for pre-order again if you missed out the first time...

Star Wars The Force Awakens First Order Legion 3.75" Figure 7-Pack

They used "Sidekick" for the TFA Han figure too - the 6" TFA Han was listed as "SW E7 Sidekick Battler Black".  Maybe "Sidekick Battler Black" Is Freighter Han and "Sidekick Battler Blue" is Starkiller Base Han?

Here's a few others to aid the sleuthing...

SW E7 Villain Trooper Commander = 6" Captain Phasma
SW E7 Secondary Alien = 6" Zuvio
SW E7 Secondary Hero Battler Orange = 6" X-Wing Poe
SW E7 Sidekick Alien = 6" Chewbacca
SW E7 Villain Trooper Red = 6" Flametrooper
SW E7 Blue Trooper = 6" Snowtrooper Officer
SW E7 Lead Hero Battler White = 6" FN-2187 (Finn in Stormie Gear)
SW E7 Sidekick Battler Black = 6" TFA Han Solo

We got the PS4 Battlefront bundle for Christmas. (thanks, Santa!)

I haven't had a chance to play the online stuff yet, but my sons and I have been having a blast just playing the co-op missions and the versus stuff.  Fun game so far, though I think my 9-year olds are already better than I am at the game after only a week. :P

I hear people on wanting to order these online, but that's not why Walmart signed up for an exclusive. 

There was rumor, at one time iirc, that these were specifically to be put up for pre-order...  But with WM, I doubt that was ever much more than a rumor without much truth to it. 

It wasn't a rumor, it was in the Walmart/Hasbro press release - "fans, customers and collectors can expect Walmart and" to carry the figures

That's why people are so annoyed - the press release makes it sound like the waves would be put up for pre-order on and that never happened for Wave 2 (or Wave 3, but the press release never talks about Wave 3 technically).

Here was the press release again...

Here is the full press release from Hasbro & Walmart...


The Collector-Favorite Line Will Feature Figures From the Saga Films and STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, Beginning on September 4

BENTONVILLE, AR, Sep. 4, 2015 – Walmart and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) announced today that the retail giant will be the exclusive home of the fan-favorite STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch toy line in the U.S.

Starting on “Force Friday,” September 4, will begin selling the first wave and taking pre-orders on the second wave of the highly collectible toy line. Customers will find the product in stores beginning in October, making Walmart the only destination in the U.S. for fans looking for highly detailed, highly articulated 3 3/4-inch figures based on the upcoming film STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

First launched in 2013, STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line quickly became a fan-favorite line, in the tradition of earlier Hasbro toy lines like the STAR WARS VINTAGE collection. As the new exclusive US home to the STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line, Walmart is proud to become the go-to destination for STAR WARS fans looking for the finest Hasbro toys available.

“Walmart is very excited to be the exclusive home of the Star Wars Black Series 3 ¾ inch figures,” said Anne Marie Kehoe, vice president of toys at Walmart. “This is just the beginning - fans, customers and collectors can expect Walmart and to be the place to find the newest characters and figures as they are released.”

“We’re thrilled that Walmart will be the new home for fans’ beloved STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch toy line,” said Maureen Smith, senior vice president of brand marketing for Hasbro. “With the support of a world-class retailer like Walmart, we can ensure that collectors continue to get new, highly detailed and articulated 3 3/4-inch STAR WARS action figures for years to come.”

The first wave of the new STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line is currently available for purchase on and features EPISODE VI DARTH VADER, EPISODE VI LUKE SKYWALKER, and EPISODE IV CHEWBACCA. The second wave, featuring a brand new EPISODE IV PRINCESS LEIA figure and the first two figures based on STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (FIRST ORDER STORMTROOPER and KYLO REN), are available to pre-order now on Both waves will be available in stores in the next few months.  Additional 3 ¾-inch figures will be coming later in 2015.

The press release pretty clearly says "are available to pre-order now on" but that wasn't the case.  There were placeholders for the figures (some of which have since been deleted), but they never went "live" for orders until ToyWiz started selling the Wave 2 figures for ridiculous prices as a secondary seller.

So yeah, I can see why people are upset isn't the option they thought it would be...
