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.

All are up for pre-order at Target and Amazon. 

Target is letting you apply the $10 off a $50 purchase coupon too.

I just realized these are due for delivery in August, so basically 10 months out.  I wonder if Hasbro is getting smarter about their pre-orders where they'll make enough to go around, or if this is just a reality of delayed manufacturing and shipping.

It looks like EE has these up too (Jeff can add the affiliate link).

I couldn't find any mention of it, so I'm assuming these are going to be available from all retailers, right?

I'm like Nick on these, I'll likely buy both versions, but honestly would just like TVC figures of everything with Retro sprinkled in here and there as a novelty and would prefer its not a core line.

Thanks Jeff!  Glad to get this one before its sold out.

Still hoping that 3.75" Vintage clone trooper 4-pack comes back in to stock someday.
