Okay good, mine looks like the one on the right too.  It's entirely possible I was reading too quick and someone was just pointing out that it was similar to an old droid.

Probably.   I just looked up the droids from the Disney Rogue One 4-pack.  Check out R2-BHD from that multipack - it looks like the one on the left.

I'm going to call shenanigans on that.  I have four of them and they all look like the one on the right.  I've also browsed through dozens of images of these and have never seen a red dot one.  Looks to me like the one on the left is actually R2-BHD from the 2016 Droid Depot 4-pack.  The dotted line just under the dome is a dead giveaway.

How does the $6.99 flat shipping rate work for large preorders, is it per order or per shipment / box? If I were to have combined the Throne Room Set with some individual figures expected to release a full year earlier, would I only be paying the $6.99 once, or multiple times?

That's a good question.  I think it must be per order.  I just tried building a new order with four items and it was still $6.99 shipping.  I can't imagine they would come back and charge you more if they shipped separately.

This has been popping in and out of stock on the past couple of days.

I know JediJman scored one yesterday and it was already delivered today. 

After 100 tries (they only last for 30 seconds each time) I managed to snag one today.  Hopefully the order doesn't get cancelled and mine gets delivered in 24 hours as well.

My initial delivery said Monday - no idea why it showed up on my doorstep 24 hours later.  Whatever system they're using to release these a handful at a time has been a royal pain in the arse.  For all the time I put in trying to catch one and the $37 price tag, I'm going to have to take a long look in the mirror about my priorities.  Right after I pop this sucker open!

Anyone else get very excited to see the knee rockets finally get used?

Boba Fett used the knee rockets on Tython...didn't he?

I don't remember that, but I could watch knee rockets and jetpack scenes all. day. long.

I think this show should open with a de-aged Luke opening Obi-Wan's journals to lead into the story.  Clearly at some point Luke went back to Dagobah to collect Yoda's things (or he took them before leaving to face Vader).  It stands to reason he cleaned out Obi-Wan's belongings as well.

I'm guessing we get two choppy episodes of Obi-Wan interacting with the tuskens and walking everywhere he goes.  Then the remaining episodes will focus on the Mandalorian and Grogu.    :D

Well you guys can thank me later when 2 million of these end up in the clearance bin. 

I went ahead and bought the rare two for $70 each because I didn't want to end up paying twice as much later if they don't show up in bigger numbers. 

I'm not happy about it, it's absurd, but it's done.

And just like that...

Disney Online Store - Droid Depot Mystery Crate Droids $14.99

I'll be honest, I'm starting to tire of some elements of the 6" line.  All the unnecessary Boba Fett variations, Gaming Greats repaints, Bad Batch armor variations, credit collection, pre-order stress, price increases, etc.  It's not nearly as fun as it used to be. 

I've managed to skip Archive repaints and the credit collection, but with more and more of these coming out and some of these variants really not being that interesting, I think I'm about to pull the plug most of the way out on this line and only get totally new figures, and maybe even only OT figures.

I still mostly love everything going on with TVC 3.75" (too many Mando variants) and will keep that line going, but I'm not sure how much steam I've got left for 6".

I was reaching that point and then I Started opening and displaying them around the holidays.  Completely renewed my interest in the line and I was starting to regret some of the ones I passed up on, like the Amazon Order 66 pack, which now goes for hundreds of dollars.  I am getting to the point though where I need to quit with doubles and really minor variations.  The archive figures for example are always slightly different from the original releases, so I've been picking up most of those.  Just not enough space and money to get everything.

I will say that getting up to speed on a display has been a big help in limiting my purchases.  I've pretty much finished all my Transformers, Marvel, and other non Star Wars stuff and just seeing that space filled has resulted in me walking away from some newer items.  I'm sure I'll buy some figures here and there to swap out, but easier to turn it down with the realization I literally have no where to put it.

I guess figures from Morak just cost more?

Well, I'm sure the shipping alone from Morak to Earth is astronomical.  ;D

I guess the answer is just "patience" but it's really hard seeing people on Twitter getting theirs in hand and I don't even know when mine is going to ship. :(

My long wait is over. :P Got my shipping notice from Hasbro Pulse this morning!

Still nothing in my FedEx delivery manager, so FU to FedEx this morning for not being able to recognize my address and incoming packages 90% of the time.  ::)

Ditto.  I'm just glad the order still exists and is moving forward...

I'm sure there is some shipping algorithm that figures out how they should send this stuff out so they don't overwhelm any one area/truck/line with too many packages or whatever.  I guess the answer is just "patience" but it's really hard seeing people on Twitter getting theirs in hand and I don't even know when mine is going to ship. :(


I only ordered the two figures that I really wanted - Ahsoka and the Death Watch Mandalorian.  Everything else?  We'll see.

I did the same.  I figured those would be the two in highest demand.  Would be easier to just order it all at once I guess, but with the playset and a case of TVC, I didn't plan on dropping that much money on a Thursday afternoon.

Do you have the app???

I have the app and there's nothing listed in there from Hasbro.   :'(  My order shows on Pulse, but just says Coming in early 2022.

So it looks like free shipping for non members is no more at Pulse. Just ordered the throne room and two TBS figures and there was a $6.99 shipping charge ($10.99 for “expedited” shipping). For most items, like JMan just said and I mentioned previously, when most items can be found elsewhere, for less price and free shipping, Pulse is going to be a tertiary option at best for most orders going forward.

JMan - did you find Tank Driver Din on Target? I can’t locate a listing there for him. Thanks!

Nope, just the Dark Troopers.  I went with EE for the Tank Driver and ordered the case which comes with two of them.  They have a $15 off coupon 2103212 and free shipping, so it knocks the price of the figures down below $13 each.  I just did that for the Yoda and 501st case as well.  I figure it's cheaper, they'll probably arrive in better condition, and I don't have to manage multiple orders for the 5-6 figures in each case.  Yakface has a link to the case on their main page if you want to go that route.

I don't know about individual cases, but here's the link to the assortment.  Only one Yoda and one 501st in there though:
