I got my Maul in the mail from HLJ yesterday. Haven't had a chance to even open the package yet, and probably won't until next week. Maybe I'll finally take a few hours and take some detailed pictures I keep saying I'm going to take. :P

Yes, you can stockpile stuff on Tenso. Basically what happens is when a package arrives you get an email, then you go to their site and pay for shipping. Or you can let it sit there if you're waiting for other stuff, then when it all gets there you can consolidate it into one package and they ship it all out together. Very similar, if not the same, as HLJ's private warehouse. I just don't know if there is a time limit they have for holding stuff before they automatically ship it out.

What courier service should I use?  I only found Tenso.  :/

I use Tenso, but I have also heard of White Rabbit Express, which supposedly offers cheaper shipping options. I haven't tried them yet since I'm lazy and don't order stuff from Japan THAT frequently. Tenso is usually around $20-25 to ship stuff to the US (since they only offer express shipping) but they will consolidate your packages if you have a bunch of stuff from different places. Here's a good guide that explains how Tenso works.

Jesse, I've used Amazon Japan to buy the SH Figuarts Luke... you have to create a separate Amazon account and use a courier/forwarding service for address purposes, but they let you bill to an American address, and they have English translations. They appear to still be selling the Bandai kits too.

It's at least worth trying to do some digging around on there. I've been trying to find other hobby sites to get all of the SH Figuarts figures so I'll let you know if I find anything.

Just got my payment request for Vader from HLJ... would have been nice to know this would be arriving since I just paid for the SH Figuarts Maul over the weekend and now have to ship them separately. Thanks Medicom! ::)

Too cloudy to see it here.  :(

Interesting to note that the speeder that pops up is the toy that has the jacketless Finn figure, and I guess the goons in it are the guys from the box's artwork. BB-8 cameo at the very end there, and I'm assuming that's Poe's X-Wing flying around there.

I can't say I want one, but I have Vader, Luke and the regular Stormie, plus I have Maul, the AOTC Clone, Battle Droid, TFA Stormie and Kylo Ren on pre-order, so I might as well complete the collection.  ::)

(Still trying to find alternate ways to get Obi-Wan and Kylo since they aren't fulfilled by Amazon Japan)

Just from pictures/toys, it seems there are two types of TIE Fighters: regular ones similar to the OT, and the Special Forces TIES that have rear/mounted cannons and hold two pilots. So I'm assuming there have been SOME sort of modifications made to the technology.

Maybe he'll return to chastise the Imperials for holding their last stand after Endor on a planet full of sand.  :P

Probably the entitlement generation. Gotta have it NOW!

I like CHEWIE's theory over at Yakface, that Hasbro miscalculated how many figures to make, so they're focusing the supplies on single carded figures.

Saw all of these but the BB-8 set at TRU tonight.... and they had all been opened. ::) The only one that looked tampered with was the Vader/Ahsoka set, which didn't look like it had anything swapped out, but it still looked off. Passed on it all.

Grabbed Rey's Speeder tonight from the LEGO Store to get the AOTC Poster. 5 posters down, 1 to go.
