Wow, I love it! Def getting this one, although I have a disturbingly large number of figures on preorder at GameStop already that I am waiting for, so Iím guessing it wonít be any time soon.

Yeah, they have been slow on some of their pre-orders.

I pre-ordered the Nightbrother in May and its still hanging out there with a mid-January delivery date.

I think this is a cool offering.  But I'm not going to pre-order it.  I bought into GameStop's PowerUp Rewards program - it pays for itself over the course of the year, and you get a $5 coupon every month.  But every time there's a preorder I cannot use my monthly $5 reward because it cannot be applied to preorders.  So I'm going to roll the dice and try to find this in a store or do an in-store preorder.  And then there's the shipping costs, which are not great.

I've been able to find most, if not all, of the recent Gaming Greats Black Series figures in stores.  In the past few weeks I've seen the Imperial Jumptrooper, Zaalbar, the Flametrooper and plenty of others in stores.

Good to hear.  I might go that route again.

I am preordering everything because for awhile there you couldn't find anything in stores - e.g. Purge Trooper

Hereís the link for those who want it:

Östill not going to preorder it.  Offer free shipping, GameStop.  And honor your rewards program on preorders.

I pre-ordered one.  They quoted a delivery range of Aug 1-4, which I think is kinda funny how precise the range is.

They must have lowered their shipping costs.  I'm looking through my Gamestop orders, and the shipping costs vary.  The Gaming Greats Kal Cestis and Zaalbar both had shipping costs of $5.99 each.  But the Republic Commando Boss figure had $2.99 shipping.

But the preorder situation still doesn't permit me to use the PowerUp Rewards benefits.  With Popfindr and GameStop's app, I can track everything down with reasonable ease once it starts turning up in stores.

Funny that they bumped the price of this up from $23 to $27, then dropped the shipping from $6 to $3.  Hey, look at what this hand is doing not that hand!
