the price is going to have to be lower than $60.  Ideally its closer to $40 for me to bite.

If that's the case go ahead and ignore the link until about six months from now when they are trying to clear out the left-overs that didn't sell at $59.99. :P

Sounds like the Amazon exclusive Red Squadron Astromech 3-Pack has been popping in and out of stock the past two days - keep an eye on the link if you're interested in adding them to your collection...


What do you mean the 'fact' that it's a Bespin droid?

Disney gives all these droids a back-story.  Last year's Halloween droid worked for Darth Maul on Dathomir.  This year's Halloween droid works for the residents of Cloud City -

I went ahead and bought one for $24 shipped... it's $6 or so more than the app would be, but it seemed worth $6 to just be done thinking about it.

Thanks once again to Rob jumping early and the rest of us benefitting -  >:D

Props to Jayson for the heads up - this little guy is on the ShopDisney app now.  Search 'halloween droid' and he pops up.  Ordered mine for just under $18 shipped to my door. :)

I will want fodder and duplicates I feel sure.  But knowing I have my minimums met is nice.

Same here - I'll probably pick up a couple extra Solo Han figures if I can find them for 'old Han' head swaps and what not, but not at $13 each.  But I'll pay the EE price to make sure I find a couple for sure, especially on that Tanker Driver.

More EE digging has revealed the pre-order page for 2018 Wave 3 at EE:

The Vintage Collection Action Figures 2018 Wave 3:
2x Elite Praetorian Guard
1x Dr. Aphra
1x Captain Cassian Andor
1x Luke Skywalker Jed I Master
1x Han Solo (Solo)
1x Enfys Nest
1x Imperial Hovertank Driver

We'll see if the case assortment is correct because it doesn't seem to include the SOLO Range Trooper and instead has the Elite Pretorian Guard, which was supposed to be in 2019 Wave 2?  ???

Did a little digging and found the Wave 4 assortment on EE's site - not up for pre-order yet though:

2x Rio Durant
2x Royal Guard
2x L3-37
2x Val
2x Tobias Beckett
1x Quay Tolsite
1x Han Solo (Mudtrooper)

Yuck.  I'd forgotten what a crappy assortment this is with no new figures from Solo, or new characters at all.

Some smaller on-line shops are soliciting a different Wave 3 case that has Solo figures, including the mysterious "Hades Joker 1" that no one has been able to decode yet.

I'm not sure if it's a Wave 3 revision case or if this is the Wave 4 case mis-labeled as Wave 3?

1x SW E8 REY

The 2018 Halloween Disney Droid Factory carded droid has started hitting ebay:

R4-BOO18, the candy-corn colored astromech (with mini candy-corn accessory).

Despite the odd deco, I'll probably still track one down at some point if I can find one for less than $20.

In case anyone is still army building these...  First Order Stormtroopers less than $7.50 right now as Amazon add-on item.  Stock up for your Ep9 scenes now! :P

 Below $6 today so I bought two more (to go along with the two I bought the other day when they hit $7). :-[

I'm going to buy two of the $8 5POA Stormtrooper Commanders in Solo wave 3 and then put the web gear on these SA guys instead. 

I'll end up with two 5POA troopers, two SA troopers, and two SA Commanders for $42, which isn't too bad a deal.  #collectormath

Unless.... the boots really are the dark color and they just look light due to all the sand and dust on Tatooine and Jabba's Palace.

Well, you see, the thing is....   I'm just busting your balls since I know the boot thing bugged you last time she came out.   >:D

I don't have any idea which is "correct" I just felt like messing with you.   ;D

Havenít all the previously released ones had the same color boots and spats before TBS?

For Hasbro, yes.

I think it was Sideshow Collectibles 12" Boushh Leia that first did the boots/spats this way, basing it off the reference images they had from LFL. The Sideshow color pattern is what Hasbro's trying to do here.  I guess whether that's 'right' or 'wrong' depends on if you want accuracy to what's come before or accuracy to what another licensee says the costume looks like?
