Is it weird that these haven't shown up on Hasbro Pulse?

Yes.  I've been watching and never saw them go up.  There haven't been any reports of this showing up even briefly and selling out.

I'd been hoping for HasbroPulse to carry these, but I may have to resort to Amazon or EE.

I have been hoping for this wave to show up on Hasbro Pulse as well - since the case is not evenly packed, Hasbro Pulse is my only hope to score a 2nd opener of the young Lando figure (which is AMAZING). I got a case from EE, plus I already ordered another five of the Rogue One Stormtrooper so I can have 6 of those open. I really don't need more of the Chewie, Phasma or Praetorian guard, but if I could score another Phasma and Praetorian for MSRP or cheaper, so I could open them and add the cardback to my cardback collection from all the vintage figures I've opened I'd be happy, but I won't be devastated if that never happens.

Have these figures shown up anywhere besides places like EE, BBTS and Dorkside? I haven't even seen them listed on Amazon.

This is odd.  The tracker said it was estimating a delivery of today, but the status has never gone past the creation of the label, and now the estimated delivery date is pending.

I wonder what's going on?  Anyone else having issues?

My case is on the way. No word on my solid cases of Stormtroopers yet.

My Stormtroopers are on their way and I just noticed that EE has up for order individuals of all the other figures in this wave, so I put in an order for another young Lando and a Phasma and Praetorian just so I could have one of each of those to open.

So I e-mailed EE about my order status and magically Fed Ex started updating.  Not a slam on EE at all....honestly, this is the first time in the many orders I've put through them that there was any kind of a hiccup.  The stormtroopers should be here tomorrow.  I can't wait to get a good look at these!

I pulled the trigger on a full set from Dorksidetoys.com that had non-mint cardbacks.  At $10 per figure it was worth it.  And I ordered some additional Stormtroopers, too.

Received my Stormtroopers yesterday.  They look amazing!  Great for any Rogue One display....I wish they had a holster so I could use them elsewhere.

Something interesting I noticed is that there's a grey paint detail on the TD on one of my troopers, but the second one does not have that.  Looking at the cardback, that paint detail is on the RO trooper....it's not something you see on them in other movies.

After putting together a TK suit and working on 501st approval, I have noticed I really scrutinize Stormtrooper armor now!   ;D

I was reading over at Bantha Skull that a lot of the Stormies on Endor didn't have holsters either, so you could certainly use them there.

In my Empire display, there are plenty of officers standing in front of them, so if someone can even notice that there's no holster, they get a cookie. I'll certainly buy more if they release them with holsters, but I plan to get my hands on as many of these as possible. I have my older stormies sitting in a hydrogen peroxide bath out in the sun on the deck to see if I can get them to un-yellow a bit.

I really think the holster thing is over-rated since it's so inconsistent in the movies. 

StarWars.com Stormtrooper Pic Gallery

Look through the pics and see how inconsistent it is.  ANH has troopers with no holsters, left side holsters or right side holsters (even within the same scenes - Tantive and DS).  In ESB (Cloud City), the holster is always on the right hand side.  Most of the ROTJ Stormtroopers have no holster (Death Star II and Endor).

Just take these awesome new Stormtroopers, enjoy them, and put them in whatever scenes you'd like. ;)

What Jeff said...  some sandtroopers didnít have rank pauldrons, holsters were there then not and no rhyme or reason.  I just chalk it up to troopers being individuals even in the fairly strict empire. 🤷‍♂️
