I checked their website last night and two of my local stores appeared to have this in stock, so I reserved a copy at the closer location and went out and picked it up this morning.  ;D

Super nice little figure, but not too much bang for your $24.91 after taxes.

And they put a confounded sticker right on the front of the card!

Btw, they are setting these up in a little shipper like that Target thing from a few weeks back. They also had some Jedha packs and the Wave One vintage carded 6" figures on there.

Happy hunting!

A little annoying that they haven't

Grabbed one this morning at my store in Minneapolis and cancelled my pre-order.  They also had most of the wave 1 6" 40th anniversary figures out, including a couple Darth Vader with display stand packages.

I picked one up at a local GameStop store.  But they had it behind the counter. 

It was also nice to see some new stock in a store.  They also had the Legacy Vader set, albeit for $45. And they also had the Titanium figures for $16.99 each.

I'll have to do some driving around I guess. The Gamestop 5 minutes from my place had nothing, and were clearancing out pretty much all of their collectibles.

I was told today it was 'probably already sold out or we never had it at all' and I remembered why I never go in Gamestop.

Did anyone happen to pick up a spare of these?  I had one reserved, but they gave it away before I went to go get it.  Now the closest one I can find is at a store an hour away.  Gotta love exclusives.

Also, is the figure an exclusive or just the packaging?  I'm not so worried if this guy is going to be coming out in the regular packaging later on.

I'm in the same boat. Pretty sure I'll never see it here.

Haven't heard any word about him being in the basic line.

I think Jayson or Jeff said it will show up in the regular line.

Reminds me of Seinfeld:

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.

And that's why you gotta love exclusives.  I guess I should just have the mindset that I won't get any exclusives, then be extremely grateful if I'm able to work out some kind of arrangement that doesn't involve selling my kidney or first born child to get one. 

You know, rather than just expecting to pay the usual marked up price to order a toy after decades of supporting every figure Hasbro makes.

Quite the opposite, actually -

Hasbro (Steve Evans) has stated that 6" R5-D4 will not be available in the standard Black Series box, only on the Vintage 40 cardback.

I think that is still the official word on this one...
