Or, maybe he wasn't supposed to be put up yet?

Yeah - they may have meant to activate the Halloween droids and accidentally added this as well.  I know Hasbro is holding pre-orders for the Andor stuff (TVC, Black Series, Role Play) until later this Fall; likely as part of one of those long drawn out weekly slow drip pre-order reveals like they did for Mano, TBOBF, and OWK.

If you were on the fence or procrastinating, today is the final day for the Haslab HISS Tank.

Currently sits at 22,400+ backers.

Is Din supposed to have the red band? I still need to get a non-red version of Migs, but I'm wondering what the correct look is.

In the show, Din's armor had the red arm band, Migs' armor did not. 

it looks like Din actually does have the red arm while Migs has the green/grey.

Migs figure was never supposed to have the red; it was a mix up from re-using the same body from Din for Migs.  Hasbro said they were going to correct it ASAP and it looks like they did.

(I wonder if the same red arm band ranks would also apply to to the Mimban Swamp troopers?)

In the Solo visual guide book, they say the red armband is standard for grunts and then there is a white armband for medics.  Matches up to what we saw in the 5POA mudtrooper figures (Han and Grunt from Target pack had red; medic had a white arm band)

According to Yakface Twitter, this droid 4-pack is now hitting the Florida Disney parks/shops.

Who's going to get my $ this time - eBay or ShopDisney (aka impatience vs patience)?

Still mad about this oneÖ $21.00 for a single carded repaint of a figure that was $26

It's not just a repaint.  The two figures have different legs -

Of course, that still doesn't really justify the $26/$21 price tags for these figures.  The DLX Fett sculpt was designed in a way to swap parts out and make all these Fett variants - Tatooine/TBOBF, Morak, Tython/Robed, etc.  It sucks though that we, the customer, are having to pay the higher initial costs for the complex mold since Hasbro will be the ones making money off it's re-use in the long run. 

It'll be interesting to see how they treat the Tython/Robed Fett from Slave I set (which re-uses parts from these two Fetts)- will they drop it in the basic line for $15 or will it be another $21 exclusive like this Fett?

CC got hit last night for the Gaming Greats Stormtroopers from Hasbro Pulse - Heavy Assault and TFU Commander.  Happy to have new stuff flowing into the collection at a more regular pace these days.

The Deathtroopers, I only ordered one and donít expect that Iíll order more.

I ordered two but cancelled and re-ordered just one as well.  Wish they would have found a way to work in the third Deathtrooper weapon (long rifle) to give this set some element of newness.  So many of the import figures come with all three -

The JediDefender site security certificate expired 7/31 and it took a little bit of effort for the server host to get the matter resolved.

Sorry for the inconvenience everyone! :(

Sames.  Wish our tech side could plan better for this stuff, but oh well! 

Taking longer than usual to get it all sorted out.  Sorry for the inconvenience everyone! :(

I just can't buy into the "we lost the legacy tooling" hypothesis.

Sometimes "we lost the tooling" doesn't mean they physically lost it, but just lost access to using it.

Sometimes the molds are designed to work with a particular set of machines and if Hasbro is no longer using the factory that has those machines or the factory upgraded their machinery such that the old tools don't work with the new machines, then the tooling is essentially "lost".

Because if you want to make a Mudtrooper from SOLO?  This is a good starting point.

I love this graphic that I saw at BanthaSkull a while back...  three down, three to go!

So... what do you think they are going to charge us for the all-new ROTJ 40th Anniversary Speeder Bike with Scout Trooper = $40? $50?  $60?

And then, like you all said, be prepared to shell out for -
- repack with VC191 Endor Leia
- repack with VC198 Endor Luke
- repack with VC190 Paploo
- The Mandalorian Repaint with Scout Trooper
- The Mandalorian Repaint with IG-88/Grogu
- repaint with VC045 AOTC Clone Trooper
- repaint with new TVC ROTS Clone Trooper
- ESB/Hoth repaint

Everyone excited to shell out $600 on countless Speederbike repacks/repaints/rehashes?
