I got the same.  When I was trying to approve the delay on my iPhone I could only approve the delay on Galen Erso.  I had to log into my Target account from a desktop to approve the delay for General Merrick.

Exactly the same thing that happened to me, with the same figures. ???

I got an email notice from Target overnight that I had to approve a delay for my preorder of the exclusive Galen Erso and Blue Leader figures, otherwise they’d cancel my preorder. I went ahead and approved. The new ETA is September 16 according to the Target App.

Got my Carnor/Kir figure delivered from Hasbro Pulse earlier this afternoon. Just waiting on Luke now and my Pulse order will be complete.

I've been under the assumption that there are two factors currently hurting the hobby:

1. The cost of licensing that Hasbro has to pay Disney just for Star Wars alone
2. The commercial failure of the Sequel Trilogy and its merchandise

We know that Disney increased licensing costs back in 2012 or 2013, and I want to say Hasbro recently signed an extension? Then you have to factor in the rising costs of production, materials, shipping, etc. All of that adds up to a pretty penny, and since Hasbro, LEGO, and other merchandisers have taken a bath on Sequel Trilogy items, I can totally see Hasbro playing it easy and only producing a specific number of figures to guarantee that they sell (and for a profit), and don't hang around clearance aisles/stores for years like Jyn, Cassian, or anything from Last Jedi.

All 3 are now pre-sold out.  ::)

Sure would be nice if they’d sprinkle at least a few new things in there.  Apparently these days putting old stuff on TVC cards is all it takes to make money.

The issue is that the Sequels brought in a ton of new fans/collectors, many of which haven't been around for as long as we have been. So they never had a shot at the original figures, and they're happy to not have to pay $60+ on eBay for any of them.

Love that Fordo figure, and the blue repaint looks amazing. It's a shame they're all Walmart exclusives.

I got my Maul and Jaxxon from Hasbro Pulse this afternoon as well, and same with Dave, both delivered in a single box with great packing. I ALMOST wish I had gotten a second set of these to keep carded. Almost...

There's no way they DON'T do repacks/repaints. Grievous is totally going to be a repack of the D1 figure, just with a white paintjob and white cape (and probably a $40 MSRP)

Stopped by a local store that sells figures for about $5 over MSRP over the weekend to see if they had any of the red/black numbered figures I'm still missing. They didn't have much I can't find for cheaper online, but I did snag Wedge since I never got around to picking him up.

Just got an email that Hasbro Pulse has shipped the Maul and Jaxxon from my order. I assume the Luke and Carnor/Kir are still coming at the end of August

I was able to grab one!

Of course this would come out mere days before I have to go to LA for work. I actually will have a day to visit Disneyland and Galaxy's Edge, and was planning on grabbing whichever of those figure sets that had Hondo in it. So I guess this is money saved.

That was random! Got my order in though. We'll see if it actually arrives next week.

This is awesome, and oddly, I love the packaging, even though I hate the other POTF2 reissues. Won't be too upset if I don't get this, it's only about $40 for the Kenner Kenobi with the same realscan face deco, and Jayson said Ponda and Evazan are coming later.

I'm hoping this means we get a 6 inch Jorg Sacul someday!

Hasbro Pulse sent me an email saying they won’t be able to ship my order of these until August 26. That’s a little upsetting considering that other sites got their orders weeks ago. Maybe I should cancel and order from EE or BBTS or something.
