I wonder if Hasbro is placing an educated bet, or has got some insight for season 3 of The Mandalorian. 

I'm hoping season 3 gets to the story of unifying Mandalore and we get to see a bunch more Death Watch, super commando, etc. Mandalorians in action.

And just got a shipping notice for crosshair. 

I never managed to get Rex preordered so Iím hoping those make it to retail or back to the web soon.

I figured it was probably a Shipt delivery guy, but was extra surprised when I saw that it came all the way from Indianapolis via Target internal operations.

Not sure where to put this one...

It appears Target has gone full on Amazon with its fulfillment in some ways.

I ordered stuff from the other day and it was just delivered by a random dude in an SUV.  It looks to have gone from a distribution center in Indianapolis to my place in the Minneapolis area, and appears to have never left the Target ecosystem.  There are no USPS, UPS, FedEx or other labels - it appears to be a Target only internal label and tracking ID.

I'm not sure what that means for us collectors, but maybe that efficiency and control of their own delivery ecosystem will mean better delivery, more availability, and lower cost of things like the Rogue One X-Wing.

Maybe this has been going on for awhile, but I believe this is the first time that I've received something from Target that didn't go through a third party delivery system.

Looks like the three "convention" exclusives are all shipping to me today - 6" cantina showdown, Trapper Wolf, Vintage Emperor's Throne Room.

This just showed up on my doorstep today.  Amazon just slapped a sticker on the outside of a Hasbro box that perfectly fits the 6" black figure box.

Mine was in great condition, but Amazon stuff usually comes without much damage (if it's delivered by Amazon).

What makes the Jedha Patrol Stormtrooper different than a normal Sandtrooper?

It's his fancy Jedha radio backpack with giant antenna.

Thanks.  I just saw the packaged front image and couldn't make it out.

Is that actually movie accurate, or just something "fun" they made up?

What makes the Jedha Patrol Stormtrooper different than a normal Sandtrooper?  Looks to be the same figure, but he is packaged with a backpack and baton?  Is that it?

I got shipping notices today for Admiral Rampart and the Imperial Clone Shock Trooper.

Thanks for posting Jeff.

Did they state when these would be available for pre-order, or were these just "pipeline reveals" for some future pre-order yet to be announced?

This seems to be popping in and out of stock for very, very small windows today.  I've seen it twice now but missed it both times.  Hopefully there is more to come.

Pulse is only $7 shipping.  Much more reasonable, although we'll probably have to wait longer for fulfillment.

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.

** Update ** - all of mine have now shipped.  Looking forward to getting these.

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.
