Funny, I met Paul Stanley at the Lego store about 2 hours ago.  They're in Chicago this weekend.

For anyone still trying to order one, the SDCC version of Jabba is in stock at the moment over at HTS.

Used to be that it was, but people keep pulling "I wasn't there and it got stolen" scams I think.  Fed Ex seems to be doing this more often.

Not quite... they'll reroute it here and it should be here today or (more likely) tomorrow. 

What they couldn't do, was leave it at my door without a physical signature.  I.E., I couldn't sign the slip and leave it for them.  They claimed on the phone that this was something the shipper required.

The pickup location is way down on the south side of Chicago and I live way up on the north side, going there would be a major headache.

I called to have it rerouted to my office and Fedex said the request was on Hasbro's end... For whatever that's worth.

Anyone else having trouble getting your Jabba delivered?

Fedex is requiring an in-person signature, and won't let me sign the door tag and leave it for tomorrow.

The pick-up location is about an hour away from my house on the south side, and rerouting it to my office is going to delay by 24 to 48 hours.

All because freaking HasBLOW seemingly is requiring me to physically be there to sign for it.

Well that is probably because the Alien figures ARE Kenner... They were never produced figures that Super 7 and Funko got the rights to. It was such a popular thing that this ReAction line sprung out of it.

I like how someone points out that it looks a little like a duck (because it does...), to which Hodges replies that it is a HELMET and therefore looks nothing like a duck.

For an alleged artist, that guy has no imagination.

Got my BTTF order today.  Love this line... and I don't mind them looking ****** at all, that's kind of the gimmick anyway.

Maybe he meant $3,900.00???

Holy hell.

The proposed location isn't far from me, and is really close to my office.  I can't wait.

Rocketeer is just showing up?  I ordered most of the line on Amazon and got that one in the mail about a month ago.   The BTTF figures already shipped too.

When I see sets like this priced at $100 at TRU, I assume it's so they can put it in the early holiday shopping ads for "WOW - 30% OFF!" type deals.

Even at 50% it would be overpriced.

I got this wave a few nights ago.  Overall I like it, but Luke's arms are even worse than I thought they'd be.

Probably worth it to keep checking today... it's popped back into and out of stock a couple of times, very quickly.

Also, the eBay prices weren't that bad already - he can be had for about $15 or $20 more than HTS was charging if that's not going to break your budget.
