My EE pre-order for the last wave of comic packs has changed to "processing". Nice surprise as I wasn't expecting them for a while...
Also noticed that EE changed the status for the case to 'Sold Out'. Hope everyone who wanted to order got a chance to order!
Just an update...
We have just been informed some more units have come up. So if you've been waiting, we're taking new pre-orders. I'm assuming those will be filled in a week or two, don't quote me on that though. (So to reiterate: not sold out.)
MY case has processed and was dropped off. It's pretty swell-- I opened 2 of them so far. I read all of the TOTJ comics when they came out and I don't remember this outfit off the top of my head as Ulic is concerned. It seems Exar Kun was based on the Jedi Academy novel illustration rather than the comic. He looks really old.
Also opened the Blackhole pack. Kinda wish they based it on the comic illustrations more. (White or silver lenses make a Blackhole stormtrooper distinctive, dammit.) It's the removable helmet mold from 2007 and I have to say the armor color itself is pretty neat-- just not true to the comic. The holo Blackhole is pretty neat AND pretty weak. I love the deco-- the little stars and all on the black looks really great. It should also be taller, unless I'm looking at the comic wrong. Hasbro kinda missed out on this one. The new interrogation droid is nicely done but I'd rather have, you know, a non-cruddy Blackhole. Oh, and he looks like he's naked, basically. As a wise man once said, in matters of importance, pants always beats no pants. I guess at least we got one Russ Manning set... but in 2007, with the accessories, this probably would have qualified as a single basic figure and not a $15 2-pack.
Haven't opened the rest yet, but they look mostly OK. This seems like a wave that should sell reasonably well assuming it makes it to the wilds of retail.
