I ordered 6" Luke and Rey on Amazon.ca this morning for $29.99 each and free shipping.

The new BS6 speeders have appeared on toysrus.ca and they are 25% off. Same price as Fan Expo.

I have an extra Hera Syndulla available if anyone wants her - $35 to cover my cost.  Available for pick up.

Watch them go in stock after the sale.

That's my bet.

For the first time in a Walmart, I saw the remains of the 6" Royal Guard wave.  Unfortunately no royal guards on the pegs but there was a Lando and two Qui-Gons.  Maybe they will start showing up in other stores soon?

I was across the border yesterday (Friday), and I was lucky to find and pick-up a couple of sets of the Black Series SA 3.75 inch Last Jedi Wave Walmart Exclusives (Elite Praetorian Guard, Stormtrooper Executioner,  Luke Skywalker Jedi Master, Resistance Tech Rose). After picking up these figures, it has re-assured me that I will not be buying any of the 5POA Last Jedi figures unless they are on clearance for less the $4.00 each. 

I noticed that when I was shopping there, that the Rathtar pack is peg/shelf warming in all the stores, but the Imperial Probe Droid Pack is being bought up....I couldn't find one imperial probe droid pack there.  I did manage to pick-up this set here in Canada (even though the Darth Vader is 'garbage') because the probe droid is absolutely amazing....and is much improved over the previous POTF2 version and it's repaints. If you haven't picked-up this set yet, I would highly recommend that you pick one up for the Imperial Probe Droid.

I also saw the A-wing there and the other speeder...I forget the name of it (which I have yet to see both of these vehicles here in Canada in-store), and they seem to be heavily available in the U.S. stores as well.

Wave 1 of the Black Series 6-inch figures were also easy to find (including Hera and Thrawn), as well as the regular release of the Landspeeder and Luke, and Rey with Speeder.  (Walmart had a huge display with these 2 vehicles for $59.99U.S. each.)

I also found one...and only one.... Black Series 6-inch First Order Stormtrooper Executioner (Target Exclusive).  I finally found it after visiting 4 Target stores.  I'm sure there will be more coming as Target exclusives tend to peg warm after a while.

Congrats on the finds, I'm really looking forward to replacing my 5POA Old Luke with that much better Black Series version!

Thanks for all the great info.  Ian.   This last week I went into a toysrus for the first time since the new toys were released.  I was totally surprised at how I was so uninspired to purchase any of the new 5POA figures.  The first figure I looked at was Chewbacca with a little bird Pugo or something and then I saw a big furry Pugo and touched his belly .  All I could think was this is where Star Wars jumps the shark.  It looks like Gremlins have joined forces with Star Wars.

I'm not a Porg fan at first glance either, to be honest, but I'm biding my time & hoping they're the Captain Phasma this go around - marketed, but not used in the movie to any significant degree.

You may be right. Or maybe Disney is trying to get to the top of the 10 most hated Star Wars Characters.  Jar Jar is infamous so maybe they want Porg to steal his limelight.    :u:

Maybe we are introduced to a Porg this movie and in the final movie we go to the land of Porg and they help defeat the empire just like the Ewoks did.  :rockon:

Oh my stars, I swear that actually sounds plausible given how much TLJ currently sounds like ESB... the Porg would be the perfect ewok-standins for eps9.  Or in eps9 we find out that the Porgs are like the Lahsbees from the old Star Wars Marvel comics, cute and furry when young but upon puberty they turn into the gigantic and violent Huhks! That would catch the First Order offguard and help the resistance win the day!
