Looks like you made the right call, Pete...  and will be spending some more money at Toy Palace to get the 2013 Yoda cards too. :(

From GH's Facebook:
"Movie Heroes (2012 and 2013) Sandtrooper, Boba Fett, Anakin, Battle Droid will be European release only"

Wow, that really stinks, so essentially I'll have to get the Yoda wave for just 2 figures - Red Exploding Battledroid and Jango Fett. Maybe I'll get lucky and there will be a spare Sandtrooper and Anakin in that case.

Not sure what I'm gonna do about the Clone Wars Wave 1 case too...

Me neither.
What a bunch of horse pucky.

I've seen a few tweets suggesting that the postponement of the 3D films means any chances we had of "big" stuff to go with them is gone too...

Also saw a few tweets that indicated that Hasbro pretty specifically said retail can't handle a $200 Sail Barge (re: #bringonethebarge petition).  :(

So make it online pre-order re: Mattel's Castle Grayskull.
I swear, Hasbro just does not seem to want to put an effort in at all.

No sympathy whatsoever for Hasbro. You reap what you sew.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Rumor: No more 3D Prequel Releases?

But how many times do you go to the well? If there's one thing I'm confident in the J.J. Abrams era is that they're not going to be pushing crap on us every five seconds. Abrams knows how to build buzz. If Star Wars is constantly available, it loses luster. Look at Disney and its "vault" mentality. Granted, it's an extreme example, but there's got to be a healthy middle ground.

So the cancellation of the rest of the prequel trilogy in 3D is the ultimate FU to these things. I love it!

The find-in-store feature on Wal-Mart's site is flawed. There are a number of stores that don't show up, let alone tell you if they have the MTT in stock.

These are $23.99 at toyrus.com.

So basically the brick and mortar store was ripping local customers off. Charming.

Actually, Toys R Us charges more in certain stores. I have seen the 2012 deluxe in a store for $23.99.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Brian's Toy Exclusive - Jocasta Nu

I'm still confused as to how Hasbro Toy Shop can refuse a Hasbro Exclusive Item.

That's who would have carried this figure at Celebration, right?

Tis figure was probably going to be a victim of two VPs at Hasbro having a pissing-match, so while it's probably more than we would have paid for it at the convention, I'm glad we're getting the character AND on a vintage card back.

I wrote Brian's Toys asking why my order from mid-July hadn't shipped yet and the next day I got a shipping notification. It's not like my order was small either, I ordered four of them, just seems odd to me that an online retailer would be holding off processing a $100+ purchase.  :-\

My order for the group was 7 - I don't think they are picking and choosing by the amount ordered.  They're just processing orders as usual and then getting to any JN orders as time permits.  They said they would deliver in January and we're not even half way through December.  Brian's should probably be sending the guys that ordered first, but who knows what kind of order processing system they have.  Clearly raising a stink bumps you to the front of the list.

As for why it wasn't carried at a convention - I think it wasn't going to be ready in time.  If they're shipping in Dec, they probably were produced in Nov, which would have been too late for any of the conventions.

NO, that's just the thing, there's no logic to how they are filling orders AT ALL.
Brian's Toys has successfully assured itself of never getting another exclusive again.

Man, Hasbro can't even get Wal-Mart to commit to an exclusive anymore. The smell of death is on this line as a whole. Sad, really, but a mess of Hasbro's own making.

I gotta wonder if we'll ever see the scout dropship, Pete.
