Yep. They seem to be treating it like any other game. You have to set up an account in order to preorder and pay the minimum $5, but they'll ship it to the store you preorder from and you pick it up when it comes in.

That's a pretty sexy looking figure, I guess I'm a sucker for repaints like this.

Preorders have begun processing for this figure. Check your bank acct for a GameStop charge hitting your account.

I preordered mine in store. Will I get a notification of any kind when it comes in?

I did too.  They told me that they would call when it arrived. 

I've already stopped by the store once just to check because I had heard about people placing pre-orders at stores that wound up going to other customers.  And in the process I wound up pre-ordering MORE stuff:  Snoke and the Guardians of Evil 4-pack.

I walked into a GameStop store today here and bought this.  ;D

Looks like they had a case of 4. It's a cool figure, not terribly exciting but a worthy addition to the gang of pilots chilling by my big TIE.

Happy hunting!

Persistence pays off!  I checked back at the store where I pre-ordered the Inferno Squadron Agent today.  Didn't get a phone call.  But wouldn't you know they would find a box full of them in the back?

I like the guy who runs this store.  But this is the second time that I've found stuff I've pre-ordered in the store WHERE I PLACED THE ORDER and never got a call. 

SMH.

So I got a call yesterday from Gamestop saying they had my preorder in, and I picked it up today. They were all being kept in cabinets behind the register, with none out on the shelves with the other collectibles (this store had no figures at all, come to think of it).

The voicemail I got from the store gave me a laugh though. It was basically "Hey we finally got your preorder in, thanks for your patience" with emphasis on finally and patience. Makes me think they've been hounded by the local scalpers.

Got my preorder in the mail this week.  Haven't popped him open yet, but he looks pretty sweet.
Climbed a mountain & never came back. I will not quit & I always fight back 
From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today
