Hope they make more batches. Would suck if it was a one-and-done.

Still no sign of more of these?  What the heck happened?
Climbed a mountain & never came back. I will not quit & I always fight back 
From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today

Maybe they simply underestimated demand and thought of it as a June / Pride thing only?

Some of their stuff is super limited, so it’s not a first by any means.  Look at the dathomir (which my phone keeps wanting to change to “fat homie”) astromech.  That one also sold out fast and goes for stupid $.  As I recall people were sorta overlooking that one too which seems to help fuel the prices rising then.

I know some people that went to the parks in June and these were nowhere to be found.

I too would buy a “fat homie” astromech.  Disney needs to make this happen.
