Bah, I'm just tired of not having these two figures.  I preordered the case from EE, along with a couple of Marvel Legends figures also due out in June.  They have free shipping, but are charging $22.50 per figure.  A bit steep when you only want 2 of the 6, but a spare TIE Pilot, Snowtrooper, and Rey now with the saber was enough for me to cave.  I can probably even use the spare Kylo Ren for a kid's birthday present from my son or something this Summer. 

I ordered from Jeff's link on the main page, so hopefully JD gets a kickback at least.   ;)

I just bought a Asty for $27 on ebay. Hux is as low as $35. I'll wait a bit more on him at this point.

I'd rather go that route than get stuck with 4 figs I don't want.

Thanks for the support, Justin!  It might cost you guys a few more bucks to buy the case from EE, but at least you know 10% is coming back to the site to help us keep the lights on around here! :)

Got my shipping notice from EE.  My Asty and Hux are travelling through Utah and should arrive by Monday.   ;D

I pulled the trigger on both Atsy and Hux from Amazon marketplace sellers.  The pricing of each was around $27, and I was getting tired of driving around with nothing to show for those toy runs.  With that and buying the 3.75" Black series Han and Leia from Tunghori, I can take some time off from hitting the stores.

I found Rey 4.0 at a local specialty toy shop. I bought her just to compare more closely to the previous versions. Will try to post a report later.

A buddy randomly found and picked up Hux and Atsy for me in a Disney store. They had the re-vamped Rey as well, but the Lightsaber gimmick isn't enough to coax me into buying another.

I got my Hux & Asty from EE last week and they look great!  I was a little worried since the paint apps are sometimes hit and miss with these figures.  The Rey looks pretty similar to the KMart version outside of the snow boots.  I'll take a closer look to see if there's anything worth noting between the two. 

I now have a Rey with lightsaber and one without still in package.  Can anyone tell me which BB8 version is better?  The one with Lightsaber looks dirtier and the paint doesn't look as good to me, but feels like I've read about that being a "corrected" version somewhere.

I was shocked to come across both Hux and Atsy at a Gamestop, of all places.  And for $19.99 each.  I had pretty much written off Gamestop as a collecting stop, but I may have to rethink that.

IIRC, and someone please correct me if I'm wrong:

- Force Friday Rey had the "inaccurate" BB-8
- A revision that shipped right after the movie came out had Rey with redone paint apps on her face and an "accurate" BB-8
- The new version with the lightsaber also has the "accurate" face paint apps and BB-8

I have all 3 but haven't opened any, so I can't closely compare. But like yours, Justin, the lightsaber version has the best looking BB-8 with the dirt and grime. The second version has a cleaner BB-8.

Those are great prices - wish they had offered that before I bought the full case!
