My thing is, it kind of sucks to make a thing with six versions and then only let people order 2. 

They should know the demand outpaces the amount they make... and they've done this three times now.  They should know how to gauge demand so that they make enough that they're possible to find for whoever wants however many they want, without making so many that they're on clearance later.

Yeah, I don't really get what retailers are doing anymore.  There are six versions of these, but you can only buy two and they almost never show up in stores.  When I did find the Stormtrooper in store, he was a limit of 1.  I get wanting to spread them out for multiple people, but you're chasing away the guy that would have bought six of them as well.  Then I look on Facebook and see a guy with 30+ blue CW Arc Troopers and wonder why there isn't a limit so the rest of us can get one.  Maybe something between a limit of two and infinity could work better, and can't someone in finance forecast enough supply for these things?

Anyone receive these from an online Target order?  I see reports of them showing up in the stores and I feel like I have had a pending charge from Target forever on my credit card, but no shipping notice as of yet.

Didn't this happen last time too where the retro prototype figure showed up in stores sporadically for 7-10 days before preorders were filled?

Yes it did, but no, I have not seen any sign of them in stores.  Anyone know the DPCI to double check if they're in the back?

I got my four Chewie's today. 

I ended up with two orange torso versions.  One of them is available for a green, yellow, or blue torso version. 

Let me know!

Edit:  just found three in a physical store and they were all the colors I have.  So now (by torso color) I’ve got two oranges, a purple, and a red.  They’re available 1 to 1 for blue, green, or yellow.

Amazing.  Thanks Jason!

Are there two colors you need set aside or do you just have extras I can buy?

Anyone end up with spares of these?  I'm in the market for a few more...
