The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Amazon Droid Factory Multi-Pack

Just got 3 more. Probably need 16 even to have 2 x 8 man squads of those Utapau clones and RBDs.  The sandtroopers and TIE pilots are nothing to sneeze at either.

If I was still doing PT clone squads, I might have done the same. This is a near perfect army builders wave, but it's not enough to justify buying 9 or so for me.

I'm a little concerned about availability as well. Since I ordered all three wave on-line so far, I haven't had motivation to hit the stores, but my impression is that wave 2 is struggling to find its way to the shelves. I'm definitely a bargain hunter, but with the ease of ordering on line and having stuff shipped to my door is by far outweighing the hassle of hunting, gas, car wear and tear or sales I might miss. Also leaves me more time to work on other projects, so I'm really hoping that Hasbro keeps up with getting new waves. I just hope retail back up doesn't threaten the entire line again. I know EE seems to be the fail safe, but ordering by the case seems overly expensive given that half of them are straight re-issues.

My buddy got two Mara's from Amazon that were literally squeezed into a one figure box. They actually folded the cards over to make them fit.


Kinda neat seeing these seemingly outsell last year's sets, which were awesome, by what appears to be a good margin.  Last year's sets backed up after the initial couple cases...  This year's seemed to only back up after a long, long time.

It's weird to hear different experiences. Last year's sets for me were very scarce which is why I was panicing this year. However, this year i'm seeing them stocked every other day.

That's insane. Although I already have the set, I feel like an idiot if I don't get another.

Vizam was clearly the highlight of this wave for me. Now if we can just get the other two from the Jabba's Skiff Guards Cinema Scene redone.

Mine arrived over the weekend, two had detached bubbles. No big deal though. But, yeah, that landing platform clone is looking pretty sad.

Got to score these the other day. It's so nice to not have to go out and hunt them down.

These are starting to show up more regularly. So hard not just picking them up every time I see them for the price.

Ordered this wave from Hasbro Toy Shop this morning, including Mara. Would have gone for wave three if all were in stock. I'll just have to keep checking back.

Aside from an isolated report of these hitting retail a week ago, I have not heard or seen these available individually yet at any normal outlet. Brick and mortar or on-line. Lots of wave one hanging around. Hope we're just not going to run into slow moving product again right away.

The pilot droid comes apart.

So do all the figures if you really try.  :P

Mods, please delete/remove/destroy if needed.

Is there any form member living in the UK that can give me a hand trying to track a package lost in transit to Herfordshire? It arrived at Heathrow, lost from there. Mainly calling the Royal Mail service or Customs service to ask point questions would be needed if there is absolutely no cost other than time.

Please shoot me a PM. Thanks a ton.

I had a reliable source tell me that these hit a Target relatively close by.

Mine arrived yesterday. Got to give Amazon a little credit as the figures shipped all together in a while mailer case packed inside a regular amazon shipping box. It was exciting to open them all and then build the protocol droid. Though, I'm a bit puzzled as I really couldn't take apart the other droid.
