Nice to hear a sighting of these.  Never hit here.

The Wookiee Arcade / Star Wars: Uprising

I don't know if anyone else is playing this one, but I have for a while and it's got a pretty good story taking place right after the events of ROTJ.  Basically, the Regional Governor of the Anoat sector has set up an iron blockade and has supressed the news of the Emperor's death at Endor.  As you grind through missions and advance, you eventually find a blocked transmission from Princess Leia about the death of the Emperor and you go on to try and liberate the various systems in the secotr.

There's a lot of grinding and resource gathering and leveling up.  But the story is pretty fun.  There's also a guild (known as Cartels) system, and I recently started a Jedi Defender cartel if anyone ese is playing.

Picked up the Walmart exclusive Black series Captain Phasma today.  I was a little surprised by finding her and not Leia.  I really thought Leia would be the last to go.

Capes are all the rage in the SW uni.  They're in.  Always.

I'm with Nick on this...  I never figured GA since the trailer once I saw the black pants.  ISB makes perfect sense.

And with that cape he obviously hasn't been paying attention to Edna Mode.

I don't know about international, but I think it's pretty common for Con Exclusives to make their way to TRU brick and mortar stores.  The Masterpiece Soundwave figure I have was a comicon exclusive, then available as a TRU exclusive about a month later.

Ahh.  Got it.  I took a quick peek on another site and didn't notice this difference.

I guess what I'm saying is that there is still a chance that this set will end up in a store after all...

You are either on to something Jeff, or on something.

The Yakman posted a link to an eBay auction for this.  If you read the sellers post he found these at a TRU in Hong Kong.

Has an international retailer like TRU ever received any access to a convention exclusive like this?

I'm personally glad they made this a convention exclusive, although I think having this be an online exclusive would have been fine too.

I'm just glad they didn't stick this in stores to warm the pegs.

Yeah I think if it's like a Target thing a pack of repaints for an Arm and a leg would be twice as frustrating.

I was looking at the ebay auction pics of this set today and was a little bit confused when I remembered something.  At Toy Fair in February, Hasbro was hinting that the 2016 SDCC exclusive would be Rogue One teaser item (trooper in exclusive packaging, like they did for TFA). 

This doesn't seem to be a Rogue One item (unless Red Squadron X-Wings of Wedge/Garven/Biggs are part of RO).  What if this set isn't the Hasbro SDCC exclusive, but possibly the TRU SDCC exclusive (like the awesome 6" Han vs Greedo pack they did once upon a time or the mega-3.75" box sets they've done the past few years)?

I guess what I'm saying is that there is still a chance that this set will end up in a store after all...
