Have we heard anything about Omega getting released or up for pre-order?   That was on Jayson/Yakface's list months and months ago of upcoming items that seemed to be getting released with the rest of the Bad Batch.

Orders for the General Lando wave finally seem to be processing through Target.  But it looks like these might be coming one figure at a time. 

It looks like the same thing is happening with the Rogue One repaints. K-2SO is on the way, but nothing else.  It also looks like the Artillery Trooper is shipping now.

I'm getting most of them next week, but one is delayed until the following week.  Good to see these are finally hitting.

I didn't listen to every minute of the Hasbro Pulse Con, but were there any updates on the Razor Crest?  I didn't catch anything new on shipping dates when I was skimming through the reveals and the section at the end dedicated to the Rancor reveal.

Glad to hear that these are going to be available via ShopDisney and aren't exclusive to the parks.

Lots of repaints mixed in here, so I'll have to see the price point of each set before I pull the trigger.  My guess is that these will be expensive, so I'm likely to pass on most of these. 

Jayson/Yakface says The Client will not be going up for pre-order tomorrow.

I think it was 50/50 last year.  Early orders got shipped pretty quick, while others had to wait nine months to get theirs fulfilled.

Any recommendations on who to go with - HasbroPulse or ShopDisney - for the new rebel fleet troopers?  Just curious if anyone has received their Stormtrooper packs from either retailer yet.

They must be banking on different nonoverlapping fandoms to push all these projects through.

Have we heard there are different demographics between 3.75" and 6", where 6" skews much younger?  The Rancor is an OT creature but in a new format.

Does GI Joe skew older as well?

Found it on HasbroPulse.

I found Cobb Vanth, Nevarro Cantina, and Rebel Fleet Troopers for pre-order on HasbroPulse too.  Haven't found them elsewhere yet and assume they're not exclusive.

Iím passing this time. I backed the precious two but just dont know what I would do with something this big.  If Iím going to drop this much cash on something this big I would probably my pick a premium statue or something.

It seems like some of the pending charges that have been happening might be the retailers periodically checking the credit cards that buyers used to make the purchases.  I had that happen with Target when I got my new Red Card, and Shop Disney did that, too.

I think this tends to be done automatically every 30 days by retailers, at least for larger purchases and maybe all purchases.

They better not wait too long to film it.  Harrison Ford isn't going to live forever.

Glad I didn't bother to pay for Premium access this year.  What a screw job and I feel sorry for those that did.

Do we know what Star Wars items will be going up for sale on the 22nd and 23rd, respectively?

Interesting article in the NY Times today about bots and Sneakerheads.

It goes in to detail about how these bots can complete purchases in seconds, and scoop up tons of stock before a real user can even complete the checkout process.  I don't know how much of this might be used in the SW toy world where stock numbers are much, much higher, but it illustrates the point if someone applies these bot purchase tools they could clear out a vendor's stock really really quickly if the vendor doesn't have good anti-bot software.
