Trying to order now. :)  Getting the free shipping can be so confusing at times, but done and done. :)  2x new dudes, except Han I got 3.

So perusing the Wave7 and Wave8 stuff from China, I've noticed Mosep's neckpeg is old school, and non-ball/socket.  I also noticed the peg is a separate piece, sculpted and inserted into the torso.  Weird way to do things but it comes up here and there for sure.

Likewise, noticing, if these paint apps hold up to what people find in the US, they're shoddy at best.  Hasbro's paint applications are nothing short of pathetic at this point.  Really maybe their biggest flaw IMO.  And at the price, they're the one thing I really consider inexcusable.  They've cut them down and simplified them to the point they really can't cut back any more, but man the work is just poor regardless if you're buying a Legends or TBS figure, any scale, etc.  It's all pretty poopy.

Love seeing a figure with heft to it (either because it's a 2-pack, big accessory, whatever) again though.  That Carbo Block, that's cool.  I have plans for that. :)

Some of my Wave 8 are processing as of now with Entertainment Earth...  Han Carbo and Jawas in particular.

Can't wait!

For some reason the full case I have on order and some of the other singles aren't processing though.

Same here - Carbonite Han and Jawas are shipping... but Mosep, Boushh, and Thorn are not.  Strange.

Maybe they are fixing Boushh's off-colored boots (at least from promo shots).

I received the Han and Mosep from Viperskingdom on ebay a couple weeks ago.

Really like both figures, but I did need to head swap the Han with the 2006 SAGA2 Carkoon Han.  Pretty much a perfect match in my book.  And I needed to boil Mosep's head for a bit to get it to slide down properly on the neck post.

I hope this doesn't portent a repeat at HTS: One new figure every other day.

An update for me, EVERYTHING of mine is shipping/processing at this point, however Wave 8 case is still not available to ship and says July.

This month was a bear...  Tons of stuff here and abroad came due.  I was sorta financially prepped for it, but sheesh it still hurts when you start really adding stuff up and looking at it.  :-[  June must've been everyone's month to get new things to market.

I've decided that when my Wave 8 stuff gets here from EE, I'll save Carbonite Han to open last. 

That way, should the dark whispers pan out and Hasbro announces that the SA 3.75" collector line is indeed dead, I'll always have the knowledge that the last new 3.75" collector figure I opened was Han Solo.  ;)

Hah I was thinking him or Mosep.  A Cantina dude I wanted would be a cool way to cap it off for me too, but yeah Han is up there as I've wanted him for a while.

I got my Han and the Jawas today.  You picked a great figure if it's your last to open ever.

Got mine too and second that emotion.

The block was worth the purchase, dare I say.

I like the Jawas a LOT more than I thot I would. 

Hans sculpt isn't the best ever but it is a good update and happy to put this one to bed.

Saved my extra to open last.  I think I will pick up two more Hans for some custom purposes too.

I ordered the wave off of hasbrotoyshop today (two waves of purchases) for 9.99 each and used my 15% off. Hopefully ships sooner than the 7-20 mailing date
