Saw the Imperial Transport at TRU yesterday. It's packed 3 per case apparently. Luckily, mine was waiting for me at home from HTS, shipped free with 20% off.

Also saw wave 4 2-packs (Hera wave) at Target.

I was starting to think some of these Legends figures were alright, then today I got Bly and the Endor versions of Luke, Leia, and Han.

What a bunch of clunkers.  The Han's the only decent one.  The Luke looks deformed.

I was thinking the same exact thing. The vintage Endor Leia was a much better figure than this legends version.

And I didn't know the Lando Skiff guard helmet was not removable. Wow. In a negative way.

Saw something scary this passed week. Stopped in my area's flagship TRU in Los Angeles, the Porter Ranch store, and found a rest SW isle with no shelf space allotted for 3 3/4 inch figures whatsoever. Black, Mission, Legends, Rebels; nothing.

Couldn't believe it when this last wave went up as well. I picked up the three OT sets.

It's been a good week at HTS. Picked up the IG-88/Bossk and Wicket/Bikerscout sets, the next two waves of single carded figs and the Transport. Sabine and the other two packs were in stock, but I declined to purchase them.

Getting a case might be a good deal for this one. I can probably unload the extra clones no problem and just be left with an extra Luke. The Troopers will just get added to my army.

I literally just nabbed Endor, Luke, Han and Leia as well as X-Wing Luke, Bespin Han and Lando from HTS.

It's seems pretty likely that whomever Jayson was communicating with does not read/speak/write English as their first language.  And THAT was the root of the issue. 

That's most likely the case. It was my first thought when I had heard the controversy.

Interesting side note to your post is the listing for a TBS Imperial Navy Commander.  I'm wondering if this is a straight-up reissue of the 2012 TVC figure or perhaps a repaint to honor the vintage Death Squad Commander?

According to JTA's Q&A with Hasbro reps, it's just a straight repack (same with the RFT).

I would hope that they fix the shoulder emblem at the very least.

Ooooo. Mon Calamari Officer resculpt. Good one.


Anyone legitimately thinking about buying these?

I hope I can answer for everyone, everywhere -- No.

My kids recently picked up the INT-4 for me with a box. I've already got one, but I still love this mini-rig and loved the gesture even more.

Don't know if I can some up with 10, but I'll try...

1. Sim Aloo
2. Yak Face
3. Klatuu Skiff Guard outfit
4. Vedain
5. 8D8
6. EV 9D9
7. Velken Tezeri
8. Pote Snitkin
9. Moff Jerjerrod
10. Force Spirt Anakin (original actor)

Hey, look at that!

The irony is, there's probably lots to show from the new film. On the onset of production (of the toys) they were aiming for the summer 2015 release of the film.
