That will look nice next to my 3.75" Lucas Trooper.

Guess I’ll get two… one to keep carded and a second to throw onto a Marvel Legends body to make a proper George!

Does Marvel Legends have a fat guy in flannel action figure?

Amazon is showing it out of stock.  I went the Hasbro Pulse route.

It went live on Amazon for about a minute, I tried to add it to my cart but it wouldn't go through.  Refresh the page and it would go unavailable.  Refreshed again and it was live.  After the third try it showed two in my cart, I went to my cart and it was empty.

You would think Amazon would have their **** together for something like this.

The StarWars.com story that announced it only had the Amazon link and didn't mention it was a fan channel that would be at Amazon, EE, Pulse, Dorkside, etc.  I'm guessing a lot of people didn't realize and many casual fans just bombed that Amazon link at pre-order time.

It is still in-stock at Pulse, EE, etc.

edit: of course, as soon as I hit "post" it's now sold out at HasbroPulse too. :P

I preordered one from Dorkside Toys. I knew Amazon and Pulse would be a waste of time.

Yeah, I heard they were shipping so I canceled my Dorkside preorder and ordered it from Amazon instead, with Free Shipping, and he arrived yesterday in a nice sturdy box.  :)

If anyone got one of these then decided they didn't want it, I'm interested.
