"This product is not available for international shipping."

I'm so tired of this kind of crap.  It irks me to no end.

I received a back order notice from TRU on the Rey Crait. Seems weird. They did this with the Ackbar set and that came through ok in the end.

Honestly, after seeing it in person today, I wouldn't be terribly sad if TRU just gave me back my money and I'll just get the standard release.  I don't know what Hasbro was thinking, but she looks sunburned.

I got one while I was in the US this past weekend.

The figure inside is disappointing. However, the packaging is first rate.  I've been very, very hard on how bad the black series 6' packaging has been, but with the Spirit Obi-Wan and the Deluxe Rey (and I imagine the Deluxe Stormtrooper which is done in the same style)  the packaging really pops.   big deal to someone like me who leaves in the packaging for display.

Gonna be tough to beat that year (3 or 4 years ago?) where Walmart had Black Series 6" figs for $10.  And most of them were in a wave that simply never saw shelf time.

That was my Christmas that year - hasn't been equaled before or since.

Added some of the 3/75" Black series I have.

This was literally the coolest thing I'd seen in a long time.  Too bad they went so far - i feel like this could have been like that coffee commerical way back where it played out like a story over a long time.

Oh and...

Found a new Canadian e-tailer:  http://www.redshift7.ca/

I order a number of pre-sale items.  Free shipping on $149.95 & up (which is a lot) and of course you'll pay taxes, but on the plus side shipping is not expensive even if you are paying and taxes are much less than customs!

Will let you know all how it goes once I get the items.

I checked up on my Snoke preorder this morning at my local ebgames. I was told that my figure was there, but he wouldn't release it until the Nov 10 street date.  He said that head office was quite adamant about sticking to the street dates.

That's funny - I just walked in there and bought one this morning at one of my local ones.

I just checked Rey and the release date now is Nov 30th though.

Boo.  Was looking forward to that one more.

I should have an extra of the two-pack so probably I will put it up for sale at cost when they come in. Save someone some money.

Has anyone received shipping notification for the Ackbar 2-pack? It's nice to see that they're showing up in stores, but it's sort of annoying to have pre-ordered them and heard nothing from TRU about delivery...

I emailed TRU 3 days ago and still no response.  The only reason I didn't just buy it from the store is cause it was on sale when I pre-ordered it.  Almost thinking I should just buy it at the store so I can pick the one with the best paint and then refund the pre-ordered one when it arrives with the store receipt.  It's Christmas now so I would have until January 15th to return it.
Saw this in Montreal, Quebec.

Honestly, 70$ for these two figures? That's completely insane. Nothing can justify buying this pack. I'm not into 6" figures, luckily, as these are horrible as well as far too expensive...
It was $50 on sale in pre-order

Added some more 40th Anniversary and Lando and ERG.

I'm in the same boat.  And the Imperial 4-pack I ordered from Barnes and Noble also nothing, even though I saw one at EBGames.

Frustrating.

The 6" line still has no Ezra!  Not to mention no Zeb or Chopper.

Star Wars Art / Best artwork in the room...

So for my birthday, my 13yo sketched me this.  Pic doesn't truly do it justice since the lighting is horrendous to get on a framed pic...

What's more - she doesn't even like Star Wars (the younger one is a huge fan) but she put the effort into it and it was the best present I think I might have ever got!
