I got one off of ebay before the prices skyrocket.  Just in case.
This is the way.

They should have just included an R5 dome with the N-1.  It seems weird to buy an R5-D4 just to pull its dome off and shove it in the N-1.

Hasbro Pulse posted a great video that highlights the features of Mando's modified N-1

Thanks for the video link - I didn't realize it came with TWO different stands.  Even better.

I get what you are saying on R5 dome, Dave but Hasbro probably knows that 95% of people are probably going to pose it with Grogu's seat and they can probably sell R5s by himself anyway (for this or for Peli Hangar dioramas/set-ups).

I ordered this on Hasbro Pulse.  The sticker shock today was substantial.

I just got one from Tunghori last week. It's out of stock now, but he seems to get them from time to time.

With how fast the Razor Crest sold/funded, I guess I'm not surprised people really, really wanted to buy his new ship too ($132 is a lot cheaper than $375 too).

We donít know how many were available to preorder.  It could have been 10,000 or it could have been 50.

Is it safe to assume that youíre talking about R5-D4?

Yes, sorry, should have clarified. I grabbed an R5-D4 and a Death Star Droid last week. He still has the listing, but it's out of stock at the moment. I'd been watching it for a few weeks and grabbed one when it came back in stock.

I snagged an R5 off of eBay the minute that episode aired.  It cost me a little under $30 with shipping.

So, Hasbro will probably re-release it on a Mando card pretty soon for the low low price of $17 plus tax.

Not necessarily Rob....I did a similar thing.
