Bootlegs or factory rejects? I haven't been following closely enough to figure out what's going on with all those over-seas sellers.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

I have to give  that to the Echo Base Rebel...  THAT was a bitch.

Yeah, this was my thought too. Sandtrooper does not fit the bill of the teaser description.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 7

At least the Death Trooper will be back for a little while. Hope there's a cool wave 8.

The whole WM exclusive thing is an utter and complete disaster here in SoCal's San Fernando Valley. We have four stores. In Woodland Hills, employees are stealing the stock. Just today their system shows they have a case of these and no one can find them. Same store has not had 3.75 Black series at all since before Sept 30th because their system shows they have two cases on hand and no one can find them. In Burbank, a Hot Wheels guy has claimed ownership to the store. He tells anyone looking for Hot Wheels, Star Wars or Marvel Legends to "Find another store, this one's mine." He physically blocks people from getting product and none of the employees care. In fact, I've seen them bring him a fresh case of 6 inch Wave 2 on Monday. Panorama City is a joke. They're clogged with old product and refuse to make room for new stock. I had a conversation with their toy people and management and they just don't grasp the concept that the are sacrificing the sale of 100 pieces to move 10. Porter Ranch, the final store, is just too far out of my way and they have a very small and empty SW section. On-Line, we all know the deal there. So in one of the Largest cities in the US, WM can't figure out how to supply their stores.

Same here, or going in on a BOGO sale with someone.

If you find something like that at some point and one can be shipped let me know.

10-4.

I just found (and bought) Jyn and the Deathtrooper. However, it was a hybrid case, more like wave 5.5. it contained:

3 Jyns
3 Deathtroopers
2 ERG's
2 Ashoka's
1 Lando
1 Ackbar

I have no idea how to upload a pix and don't have an on-line photo storage account. Sorry fella's.

Rogue One / Re: TRU Rogue One "Battle Damaged" TIE Striker

Alas, my dreams are turns asunder. Picked this up, nerf launcher included. Oddly, there was no TRU exclusive lable on the box, had to look at the box closely to determine that the picture on front was different. The pilot is also an "ace"/LT with the additional helmet apps.

I'm asking myself, am I really going to buy this just for the 3.75 inch stormtrooper shield and baton?

I know it'll be a simple re-paint, but it'd be fantastic if this one dropped the Nerf feature.

Whoa! That's awful. Thanks!

As I guessed, none of my Walmarts had these on the shelves when they were supposed to. They were all sold beforehand despite their being barred from sale before 9/30 or 10/2 depending on whom you believe.

How do you know they were sold?  I don't think a few of the WM's near me have gotten theirs yet.

My bad. Sold or stashed. I held some in my hands, local friends texted pictures during the week prior representing all four of the Walmart's near me in the San Fernando Valley, so we know they had 'em. None of us were able to purchase them. None of those stores had them on the selves since. I know some were stashed and picked up later and one of the hot wheel guys bragged about using Finn to purchase a full case.

These are nice, but I think I'm gonna pass.

I have to admit that I'm impressed overall with this thing.

Cons: 5 POA cockpit, everything nerf.

Pros: Size! It's hefty and as mentioned above, fits in well with the best OT TIEs Hasbro produced in their golden years. Also, I was able to minimize the Nerf stuff - took off the missile holders. There's a black screw mount left, but it's far less an eye sore that the missile holders. I also retracted the missile tube. Took a tiny bit of doing, but I disassembled the mechanism and tucked it in. Not perfect, but tolerable.

My goal is to purchase 9 of these overall. However, I'm going to wait for the "Value" one before I commit. Curious to see how it compares.
