These are $23.99 at

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.

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.

If anybody has an extra Republic Dropship pilot to trade, hit me up.

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.

No confirmation via Celebration VI, eh?

Grasping at straws, but did Jedi Defender get one to giveaway this year by any chance?

I'm pretty pissed about this one, just because it seems the only crack I'll get at the Jarbonite.

From Galactic Hunter's Twitter:

The people who clamored to see Jocasta Nu made need to put their money where their mouth/keyboard is and order multiples. #justsayin

- I ordered two, thanks!  Is it me, or does this tweet indicate that the people over at EE were opposed to Jocasta Nu?  And could that explain why we're talking so much about Brians Toys?

If that is the case, I think EE left some money on the table. I bought two as well, happily, despite the fact Brian's Toys is king of the scalpers. Then again, EE ain't no great shakes either.

I will gladly help whoever I can, provided I can find enough product. I do have five KMart's within reach.

Are you guys getting charged tax on these?

Went and looked at the ones I bought a week ago - nope, not taxed.

Just checked as well. No tax either. Weird.
Take that Chris Christie!

Yeah, I don't think homeboy understands ALL TV shows lose audience as they go. It's inevitable.
Hasbro better have some good stuff planned for this line at Celebration VI. There's too much good stuff not been done yet.

Ever since Adam at GH started asserting that CW is dying because of the huge drop in ratings, I have tried to actually find the source that proves it.  Yes, the ratings have dropped but not by 25% or anything near that.

As far as I can tell, there is no source.  No offense to Adam, because I love his site, but I think he is prone to exaggeration when he talks about this.  I just roll my eyes when I read it.  There has been a drop in ratings, but is nothing out of the ordinary for a show going into its fifth season.  Here is a breakdown of the ratings over the course of four seasons:
