Thanks Jeff.  I didn't have him on my list to buy so I assumed it was a repack or something I'm not interested in.  I gotta keep better notes.

Iím stunned by how fast Mando sold out on Hasbro Pulse around 4 pm ET.  Thankfully I had the Amazon app open and was able to find it there. Now Iím curious about how the figures in this wave are going to ship from Amazon.  Will they ship them all together?

Thank you Jeff and Matt...  I kept doing any rewording of my search I could think of and damned if that wouldnít just pop up.  Thatís not the first time Iíve been frustrated trying to find a preorder on amazon too.    >:(

Great wave! Glad I pre-ordered the case a while ago to not have to worry about pre-ordering the figures individually (except for an Armor.  :P )

It looks like this wave has turned up at Target stores.  I'm hoping that these will turn up at other retailers soon as well, because Target's online orders seem to sell out in a flash.  These appear to be the figure numbers:

VC178 - Darth Vader ROGUE ONE
VC179 - The Armorer
VC180 - Moff Gideon
VC181 - The Mandalorian (Beskar Armor)
VC182 - Captain Rex

Grabbed the wave at Target today. Especially excited for Gideon after yesterday.

My buddy was able to coax a case of these out from the stockroom at Target and was kind enough to stash Rex for me, so I now own the one figure I wanted from this wave.  ;D

It seems like this wave is shipping in bits and pieces from online retailers.  I got Vader from Amazon the other day.  And Hasbro Pulse is getting set to ship Moff Gideon. As for the rest?  Who knows with the way shipping is going.  Even FedEx and UPS seem to have slowed down.

Amazon has been shipping more of this wave.  I'm expecting Beskar Mando, Captain Rex and the Armorer today. 

Unrelated?  I got Moff Gideon from Hasbro Pulse last week.  The likeness on that figure is unbelievably good!  But I've also been seeing some examples of figures that should not have gotten past the QC people, with the paint applications for the hair being really off.  I've also heard some people saying that the single packed version of Fives may suffer from a similar issue.

Got my shipping notice from EE for the full Beskar Mandalorian figures.  Man it's been a while waiting for these!

I ordered another Beskar Mandalorian as well as the Armorer.  These shipped, but as always the tracking info from EE is weird.  You get an indication that a label has been created and it's been picked up, but then it disappears for a few days, but never in the custody of USPS.  And the tracking info is only useful for the last day or so before it arrives.  It kind of defeats the purpose of tracking information.

Anyhow, I'm hoping that the Armorer shows up MOMC!

So my Mandalorian figures showed up today.  I like the figure, even though his armor is a little too silver.  Odd that it seems we got these a lot later than Europe and Australia.  That seems to be happening a lot lately.

I still don't have this wave. Got shafted on my case pre-order. Waiting on re-orders from Hasbro Pulse.  :(
