Me too and once again no tracking info or acknowledgement in my GS account that it shipped. In fact it doesn't even show the Rocket Stormtrooper shipped that I received last month.

I got one of those emails a few weeks ago about the new Battle Droid, but he never actually showed up and now I have no proof he ever even shipped.  ::)

Finally got the new Gaming Greats Battle Droid from GameStop.

Preordered the new Clone Trooper Jesse figure from Walmart earlier today after a few hours of Checkout errors.  ::)

Received Endor Leia and Skiff Guard Lando ROTJ carded figures yesterday from Amazon. Endor Han is out for delivery today.

I got a shipping notice for the Scout Trooper, but he didn’t show up, then I got an email saying he was delayed, then I got an email saying it could not be delivered and they were canceling my order. WTF??

No word on Wicket, which figures because that was the only one I actually cared about in this wave… ::)

Dropped a nice chunk of change preordering Jabba, Celebrations Vader exclusive, Spirit 3-pack and Omega this afternoon at Hasbro Pulse.

thinking Cad Bane will be part of a regular wave, so held off on getting him for now. Same for the ROTJ figures.

I see GameStop wants $28.99 for that exclusive Gaming Greats Maul PLUS shipping.  ::) I can wait for a sale on that one, or at least til he shows up in stores.

Picked up five Shore Troopers from Target for $8 each.  ;D

Also received Din Djarin (Morak) from EE…

Got Luthen, Bix, Cassian, and Mon Mothma from Amazon yesterday, was not expecting those so soon!

I actually found a ROTJ 40th Wicket in a store.  ON A PEG!  Count this among the very few Black Series figures that I would happily pay full price to add to my collection.  I also ordered the Darth Maul (Mandalore) figure from Hasbro Pulse.  It just seems like one of those that I might never see in person, so I pulled the trigger on that.

Yeah, I have seen a few different Target stores around here that got at least two cases of that ROTJ wave, so encouraging to see them show up in greater numbers. I have seen the Gammy at multiple stores as well. I hope Waves 2 and 3 get good distribution like this too because I didn’t preorder any of those.

Saw a bunch of Saw Gerrera’s for $9.99 at Ollie’s too, lol.

Got a shipping notice from Amazon yesterday for HK-87, looking forward to that one!

What is going on with Ki Adi Mundi and the ROTJ Rebel Commando? Did either of those ever go up for preorder anywhere? They are both Fan Channel exclusives, right?

Thx!

I got the same delay notification for those two figures, yeah.

I ordered another Aldhani Cassian from Walmart.com when they put they Bad Batch figures up the other day. The first one they sent me got totally crushed in that stupid flimsy envelope they use.

Got the new one yesterday and it was smushed too, although slightly less so than the first one. I guess that’s as good as I can expect since this is apparently not being sold in stores.  ::)

Yesterday I picked up a Credit Collection Moff Gideon at Ollie’s for $7.99. They also had two full cases of the Jyn Erso repack figure in the newer box, and Saw for $9.99. Pass.

Man, did I see some interesting things at Walmart yesterday!

Not only did they have BOTH Andor exclusives in stock, they also had JAC-1 and Credit Collection Boba Fett, whom I have never seen in stores before. Several of each too so they were not just one off returns.

I was finally able to pick up a minty boxed Cassian in disguise figure, and I got a much nicer box for the Imperial Officer too. Happy to upgrade both of those.

I literally could not remember getting CC Boba, or what condition he might have come in, so I grabbed one of those too, just to be safe. Will have to dig around today on that guy.

 Seen a few new things recently:

The first PFP wave at both Target and GameStop, no price in system yet at Target though.

The second ROTJ wave with Paploo, Chewie in chains, etc at Target. I passed them up initially thinking I had that whole wave on Preorder but apparently I did not.  :( When I went back Paploo and Chewie were both gone but I got the repacks.

The new TVC wave with Hunter and Piett. Hunter continues to elude me though…  :-\

Lucked out and found Paploo and Chewie at a Walmart that must have just put out a fresh case. Wave complete! Glad I did not resort to paying the ridiculous $26.99 that Amazon and GameStop are trying to charge for these.
