Costco is apparently getting 2 3packs and 2 4 packs of TLJ pops.  Not all of them, but almost all of them.  Hopefully it's the Canadian Costcos, not just the ones in the U.S.

There's also a ton of chase exclusives that will be tough to track down in Canada....

Or maybe they received instructions from Hasbro that it's ok to put the stuff out early.  Working at TRU for 10 years, this happened more often than not with street dated merch.  SW, GI Joe, Transformers etc, when movie related was street dated and would go out early if either Hasbro gave the ok, or the suits at head office sent the word to put it out. While I'm sure from time to time it is done in error, it's not always just the "dumbass employees".

I actually find your post and comment offensive to just lump together and assume everyone who works for minimum wage at retail as stupid and morons.  Maybe you'd prefer to do their job as they are obviously incompetent at it and should just go on unemployment or welfare and drain the system rather than pay into it.

The next R1 wave of Galen, Weeteef, Death Star Droid (black) and Young Jyn has shown up at EB Games.  $12.99, $11.50 with the platinum membership.

Yeah.  I got a notification from funkotree on insta that it was up for pre-order so I did one to have shipped to my ex brother in law in Buffalo.  Still shows as "getting ready to be shipped".  Not sure what that means for my chances of getting it...

I ended up going to two stores to find one.  The first had 7 and sold out quickly.  The second, which the staff at the first checked inventory for me, showed 10, but when I got there I could only spot 5. 

These are going to go quickly if the hooded luke was any indication.

This is more like an unadvertised sale price to clear the pegs for the new stuff coming in September.  I wouldn't be surprised to see stuff starting to show up at Winners and other secondary resellers as the big box retailers try to unload stuff sitting in warehouses.

I would actually think that it's either collectors or scalpers.  When I moved to Keswick, I thought for sure I was the only collector around.  Turns out there are at least 4 just in my neighbourhood.  I listed some items on Kijiji and one of the buyers lived the next street over....

Red 5 standing by.  (That's means I'd be in...)

The Walmart exclusive Funkos are all available online.  7th Sister, 5th Brother, Inquisitor and the ROTS 3 pack.

I can't say Zeb is there for the kids.  I think that's more Chopper's role.  Zeb is based on the original concept art for Chewie.  Much of the look of the series is based on his original drawings.  Even the TIE fighter wings.  Season 1 for me was ok at the beginning and got better.  Season two was great and the two part finale, especially the last 20 minutes was almost perfection in both action, writing and music.  And having Matt Lanter's voice AND James Earl Jones's when his mask was broken open was and he says "Ahsoka" gave me goosebumps. 

Season 3 has been great, but the finale was ho hum.  Hoping for a great season 4

Successful trip to the US yesterday.  Multiple Walmarts had the 6" BS on for $10.  Most only had Jakku Finns, Zuvio, Eadu Andors and Jedha Jynns.  The Disney store in the Fashion outlet mall was having a sale.  All 6" Elite figs were also $10 and the premium format figures were $20.

The things I picked up were:  Rebels  Maul /7th Sister 2pack $10 on sale at Target,   6" 40th Obi wan and Leia $20 at Target, and the Walmart excl. 3 pack Pop Vinyls of Greedo/Hammerhead/Walrusman $25

And I also got he Target excl 3D BR/BR/DVD/Digital Rogue One for $30.  The packaging is awesome.  More than few Targets had lots of copies available.

There was also two 10 pack of Hot Wheels die cast ships that I've not seen before at Target.  A "Heroes and Villains" set.  They were on sale for $30 each.  I passed, but they were certainly cool.  The one set came with exclusive gold millennium Falcon and Slave 1 and the other had the TIE Stryker and the U-Wing, but they weren't gold...odd

The worst part is now that I've opened the figure, he can't stand.  His ankle joint is too loose!

 Sounds like somewhat typical Hasbro 6'' figs. my Ahsoka had a loose ball joint on the right hip. it wouldnt stand very well either so i took some super glue and carefully put it in their,moved the leg around gently and for awhile so it wouldnt make it not move or break. it just gives the plastic a bit more meat, you probably know about this...but anyway, it worked on Ahsoka and she stands way better then she did. Or use clear nail polish if you think super glue is too strong. i didnt have any clear nail polish so i used cheap dollarama super glue. give it a shot if u are into that :)

You guys could solve all your loose joint problems by not taking them out of the package

Found remains of the 40th 6" at my local Walmart.  Also on the peg was the Rebels Maul/7th sister two pack.
