You are all welcome.  If I had not bought one off Ebay for crazy prices this would not have shown back up for sale.

Yeah, seems like a good time for me to bail on this line. I'm still mad they never re-stocked Darth Maul.

Why is it companies cant figure out more product means more profit?

And my order has been cancelled by Disney.  >:(

Actually hating Disney more than Walmart this morning.  I managed to order one yesterday as well, then fired off emails to cancel my Ebay purchased one of $65.  Got my Ebay purchase refunded, then the same cancelled order notice from Disney this morning.  I've spent hours now trying to get this guy and have nothing to show for it.  THANKS DISNEY!

Justin-I wanted to make sure you took the email from Disney to say "order cancelled" ie if they were to get more we'd still have to place a new order to get one. Not that if they get more then they'll send it.

Here's the email I received, titled "Urgent Update":

Quote
Dear Disney Guest:

    Thank you for your recent Disney order.

    We are sorry to inform you that the following
    merchandise was not available at the time your order
    was filled.  You have not been billed for these
    items.  We apologize for any inconvenience
    or disappointment this may cause.

    ITEM                        QTY   DESCRIPTION
    461723255144            1   SW BOBA FETT DC AF

    If you would like a different item, we will be glad to
    add it to  your order.  Please email us at
    Guest.Services@DisneyStore.com with the item number and
    description.  We look forward to being of service to
    you in the future and hope you will continue to enjoy
    the Magic of Disney!

    Sincerely,

    The DisneyStore.com Team

If I log into the site, it shows my order as $0 and says "CLOSED," so I don't think there's any chance they get more in and fulfill it.   :(

If I was dealing with this earlier on, I think I would have bailed on the line.  It just stinks to have gone back and purchased almost all of them just to now miss out on one of the last (and one of my favorite characters to boot).

New figures are Poe in flight suit, Unmasked Kylo, and Rey with an added accessory.we saw them up close, but they are 1:00 raffles like the others.  Rey is identical to the first release outside of the additional weapon. Different UPC though for anyone looking to swap. I'll try to post pics later.

Picked these 3 up today. Not sure I'll keep Poe and Luke's lightsaber, I mean Rey.

I really like the Jacen Solo, I mean Ben Solo (yes I'm a little bitter they didn't go Jacen). And I really like it more so because I really like Jacen/Darth Caedus in the EU world than the fig itself is that good.

I went back for the "new" Rey and grabbed Poe and Finn to complete the heroes.  Won't be getting too many more of these though unless they make bounty hunters or something.

Awesome surprise today when my Christmas present from a friend was an Elite Boba Fett he found while in Rome. Apparently they had a whole bunch of it. Silly Europeans.

Wow!  That is awesome!  Did he know you missed out on it?  Didn't even know they had these overseas.  Congrats!
