"Today was a good day," to quote Ice Cube. Getting the price adjustment and scored the Unkar Thug 3-pack. If luck is going well, I should be finding a 6" Phasma any time now.

Yes, the Bespin Duel flashback happens right after the Rebel Season 1 flashback with Ezra, Kanan and Inquisitor and right before the ROTJ flashback with Armor Up Fett and Jedi Luke.
Why does Han Solo's box have a picture of David Duchovny on it?
I found Wave 2 of the BAW TFA figures at Walmart today and snagged the Ezra and Kanan I needed.
I see that MP Soundwave all the time. It's Devastator who's missing here.
You sure it's Soundwave with his 5 cassettes? He hasn't been in distribution for a while and was fairly hard to find nationally based on the TF boards. You should buy up whatever you see and sell them on Ebay for profit - one just sold today for $249.
They could, but I feel the sense would be "damned if they do, damned if they don't." They'd get more online purchases, yes, but then we'd get fans that are waiting to find them in stores complaining that they can't.
If more collector's were able to preorder online why would there be more complaints about not finding them in stores?
Or maybe just put up your preorder when you say you're going to put up your preorder $%*#! TRU.
If they plan on making a lot of these they should just go ahead and allow more pre-orders then.
They free ship to store too. *shrugs*

HEADS UP FOLKS!! I have received some feedback regarding the restrictions imposed on Bandai from selling their Star Wars kits outside Japan. Apparently the directive and pressure is from Disney themselves, and not from Revell or any other party as indicated from other forums and posts. In fact, Disney may be beginning to apply pressure on other Japanese Manufacturers involved with Star Wars merchandises to restrict their sales to only within the country, and may include other items such as PVC figures, statues, toys, etc etc. Hence depending on the company's agreement with Disney, we can expect more stuff to get pulled out of the overseas market later. I can't reveal my source due to legal reasons but I can tell you they are dependable - and very worried about their sales and profit margins. In the event this rule is applied nationwide (since I still see a few shops selling them) the only option is to get Kit Hunters from Japan to get them for you. Look for my notes section to see who these people are. If you are residing in Japan and not affiliated with any shops there but are willing to help, please let me know and I'll include your contacts there.
UPDATE: Apparently I just found out the original contract between some of these manufacturers and Disney did state that the merchandise were indeed for sales within Japan only. Somehow these got through to online shops that didn't know about this rule. So now we have a lot of very unhappy vendors there as well as very unhappy fans outside Japan.
UPDATE II : I have been asked to list down all the effected merchandises. Unfortunately I don't have a list given to me. The only ones I know for sure were the Bandai kits since I am more into model kits. But if you were to look at Hobby Search's Japanese site and compare it to the English site, you can already see some of the things not model kits related there (at the Japanese site) missing from the English site. As for other brands like SH- Figuarts, Kotobukiya, etc etc, I have no idea if they too will be effected. I was only told Disney is applying some pressure to have these Japanese Manufacturers comply with their agreement
