Dang, that's awesome, I hope we can rely on her for that kind of info when 6" proto-Boba starts showing up.

She said Sept 8th is when they are supposed to be releasing, but she said her store is at the end of the distribution "ring"... so likely later for her... and probably me since it seemed my area was the last to get them (than the far suburbs).

The Original Trilogy / Re: Rumor: Disney restoring Original Trilogy for Blu-ray

From what I've read over the years it sounds like GL kept Fox somewhat at arms length.  He wound up giving them a stake in ANH.  But with his end of that movie he was essentially able to set up Lucasfilm as an indie studio, and he retained more significant ownership of the subsequent films along with the licensing.  From that point forward Fox served essentially as a distributor, and not much more.

Bill Hunt of The Digital Bits had this to say back in May:

Quote
Of course, Disney is going to release the original, unaltered films!

Are you kidding? The folks at Disney have $4 billion riding on this little investment and they aren’t stupid. The only reason the original versions haven’t been properly released before this is that George Lucas didn’t want it to happen… but Lucas is no longer in control of such decisions. There’s simply no way Disney would have paid $4 billion without the right to do what they wanted to with this franchise. And what they want to do is exploit the crap out of it for years to come.

As for Fox being a problem somehow, does anyone really think Fox wouldn’t appreciate the chance to make some easy cash releasing the original versions in partnership with Disney? Where there’s a will, there’s a way... and where there’s this much money to be made, you can bet they’ll find a way. Besides, if Fox can work out its differences with Warner Bros. to finally release classic TV Batman on Blu-ray and DVD, Fox should have no problem striking a deal with Disney on this.

Bottom line: We’d be absolutely shocked if the original, unaltered Star Wars films don’t A) return to theaters, B) get released on Blu-ray and DVD, or C) both, prior to the theatrical debut of Episode VII in December 2015. I mean seriously. You don’t need to be a Jedi or a Sith to see that the Force is strong in this rumor.

I don't think the Fox thing is as big a roadblock as other people seem to think it is, either.

This whole scenario makes a lot of sense to me. Everyone stands to win something.

Yeah, that is a very concerted, calculated plan to launch the new show.  To be honest, I'm happy to see that sort of aggressive marketing stance.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Future of Star Wars Collecting?

I dropped by a nearby Target hoping to find some new 4" TBS figures since there have been 0 on the 3 pegs for months and they still haven't restocked even with the reset.  6"- yes.  Finally wave three.  There is one of the big X-Wings but the stickers on the cockpit are peeling back.  Not sure if that will sell at all.

I saw the new Luke at a Target over the weekend.

It looked very out of place.

I've seen the on an endcap display and then the other Walgreens where I picked up the better paint app they had them on a shelf not even in the toy aisle (but there were other toys there)... so the overflow in the center aisle.

Nick (and anyone else still looking), there's a Funko forum called funkofunatic.com where you can join up and there's a thread about said Tyrion and there's a lady who works at a Walgreens that is helping out people that can't find them by giving locations.  I also wrote to Walgreens and inquired if a local store would get these and they called and told me the location of one in a week's time... which was the day I went out on my own and found it out in a WG in the boonies.
