When I reserved my R5 at the store they sent me a very non-specific e-mail saying "they would hold the item for a period of time".  At first I assumed I had 24 hours to get my item, but when I re-read the e-mail it was so non-specific it made me think they could easily put it back out after only a few hours, so I hustled to the store and grabbed it ASAP.

They have definitely changed their preorder policies over the last few years. In the past, they would tell you they hold preorders for 48 hours. But the last preorder I had from them, GTAV in 2013, they sent out an email saying you HAD to pick up your preorder at the midnight release, which was pretty inconvenient.

All of this was well before they started selling collectibles, and given the horror stories so far, it might be easier to just call different stores before going hunting.

My Target had an endcap in the toy aisle but it just had some Star Wars shirts they moved over from men's clothing and some plush Tauntauns. Only 6 inch figure in stock was the AT-ACT Driver exclusive.

I can't find this listed - what do you get in the Exclusive that won't be available in the general release?

I could have sworn I read somewhere that the Poncho and hat were exclusive to the SDCC box set... I could be wrong though

Cliegg Lars is a good choice, as are the Rogue One characters and Hux, but I decided to go with 99 from The Clone Wars. Might as well vote outside the box before Captain Rex makes it into the final poll.

Very unfortunate that it appears that all of the cool accessories are exclusive to this set and won't be in the wide release. Hopefully the price will deter some folks and I'll be able to snag one on HTS.

Yeah this is just a random collection of junk. $50 for a Commander Gree helmet and the Holy Grail from Indiana Jones? WTF?

Some people on Reddit said the same thing happened to them. Gamestops are selling the preorders and then trying to offer store credit since they have no clue when the figures will be stocked.

Thank GOD this means the end of the WM exclusive line. I'm still unconvinced that half of those figures actually exist.

Funny that the last 2 years of Black Series figures were 90% TVC repacks, and now TVC is resurrected with a Black Series figure.

Hopefully it's not like the Logan/X-Men endcap where they just shift old pegwarmers from the regular aisle to the endcap

Oooh, that looks to be based on the original EU design too!

McMetal, I thought that was Kylo's helmet that was smashed...

BOGO 40% off LEGO sets at Target this week, so I snagged the Series 4 Microfighters. Came out to like $34 after taxes, pretty much the best deal you can ever get on those.

The planet with the AT-ATs and rescue flare podracers is called Crait

Trailer looks good, but given the colossal pile of you-know-what that the first one was, I'll wait to see if they actually added the stuff the fans were asking for.

And, for your entertainment, dank memes!
