So no info yet then beyond, one got put on shelves too early in Europe?  It’d be nice to know when and where I need to look to snag one before they cost $100.

I've asked my contact in Florida a couple of times now since it was announced, but still no sign of them at the Disney park shops.

I ordered the case off EE using the link on the main JD page.  I thought the two Stormtroopers were part of that case, but apparently they're solo releases?  I added one of each along with the case.  Hoping EE takes better care of them than what I've received from Amazon or Walmart.

Rob, I don’t want to alarm you but you might want to check out this review from an initial release about a month ago... (there might be an ad at first.) https://youtu.be/_zGQ0s69UKc?t=571

Yikes.  That looks like something that was made by someone who almost knows how to make things.

I wonder if they could do some sort of tamper-proof package with some sort of perforated cardboard with a pull tab? Once opened the perforation would have little color indicator to show the package had been opened.

(Think a cardboard version of Oreo packaging.)

That or something like a red line in the tape that shows as broken when the tape is cut?  There's got to be an easy tamper solution out there.  Just not sure how cost effective it is or if they would care. 

I remember when Walmart first came out with the self-checkout machines.  A news anchor was interviewing some WM bigshot and asked if they were worried about increased shoplifting.  His reply was that they forecasted an increase in theft, but that the savings from fewer checkout people would still be a huge net gain.  Profit always trumps integrity I guess.  Hasbro gets paid by retailers, not consumers, so they might not really care.

Don't forget about a new Skittles style retro figure, maybe a Boba Fett or a Mandalorian this time.

Maybe they'll make Rob's life easy and do a rainbow skittles R2, so he only has three colors to deal with.

Careful what you wish for.  They can get to 5 with a different head, 2 side legs, body, and center leg...

About a year ago, one of those viral TikTok challenges started to steal the head off a Lebron James Space Jam figure.  It was a HUGE issue for that toy line.  The packaging had to be completely revamped, the manufacturer (Moose Toys) had to send out "repair kits" (basically an adhesive plastic strip to hold the head in place) to retail to try to stop it from happening.  There was a HUGE amount of product that had to be trashed or sent back. 

I would hope Hasbro/Mattel would learn from that but...

Yep - that's what I was referring to.  I saw dozens of pictures of the leftover headless figures on the MN Toy Posse page along with seeing several in-store myself.  What a waste.  In totally unrelated news, anyone in the market for a bunch of Lebron James heads?  Asking for a friend.

I keed, I keed.  ;D

Here’s a new one:

I won on auction earlier today, at least I think I did, where I was the only bidder. However, eBay refuses to acknowledge that I actually won the auction. No confirmation email, nothing. When I click on the item page it says “We’re determining the winner. Please refresh the page.”  ???

I googled it and couldn’t find any reference to this on the internets. WTH?

Just won an Ebay auction and have the same thing.  I sniped someone in the last 30 seconds, bidding $21 and the auction closed for $17.50.  But it says "We're determining the winner. Please refresh the page." And nothing changes when I refresh.  Not sure what this change is all about, but its pretty annoying as I'd like to pay and move on to something else.

And so it begins...

Cool deal!  I feel like I got my fill of the Remnant Stormtroopers though.

+1 and I'm not a big fan of weathered figures anyway.  Good deal though.

This set is on sale at Amazon right now - $58.95

Bah, I feel bad for the people that panicked and bought these at $100.  I bought one for $80 and even that feels like a bit of a rip off now.

I'm still concerned about people swiping things from the packages, so while more pack-ins would be cool that's also just one more thing that can go missing.  Starting to feel like I might have to go 100% online ordering with this change and even then there's still risk.

Are you ale to post a generic sponsor link for EE and Amazon, so that a user could click the link then order anything on the site and JD would get credit?  Or does the link need to specify certain items?  My family buys a fair amount of other stuff on Amazon, so I wouldn't be opposed to just clicking the JD link first if it would help fund the site.

Generic #sponsored links exist on the front page - I know the front page is pretty dead these days but it does still have some good info on it.





Perfect - thanks!

I am dreading the possibility that Hasbro will charge $26 for the Dark Troopers, which is frankly insulting considering the droid is almost all black - can't use the "premium deco" excuse with us, Hasbro.  Army building at $14 per figure isn't cheap.  But at almost twice as much per figure?  I might top out at 4 of these.

Can I just say that I love how your tough stance on these prices is to possibly limit yourself to only four of them?   ;D  I don't know what Hasbro is doing, but Nick seems to be the one who's actually world building here...

I got an email alert from Hasbro Pulse that this is back in stock.  But the one per customer purchase limit is still in place.  I would have bought one if not for that.

So if the limit was higher you would have bought one, but you won't buy one because you can only buy one?   ???  You are a man of principle Nick.
