great news for sure, but I feel really bad for those that had to jump through hoops to get them the first time.

I wonder if the lottery system from the previous release will still be in place. I hope note.

It would be nice if they slightly varied the packaging with something indicating a regular release and just produced enough for people to buy casually. Not sure I even want these, but if the vader and boba are nice in person I might get them and call it a day. But I certainly am not going to go out of my way for them. If I miss out, oh well.

So hopefully this is a nice normal release.

my understanding is that there will be plenty to go around of each figure. Personally, I am interested in grievous the most.

Reports from people that got Greivous the first time around were that he has trouble standing when taken out of the package.  Hopefully this little "problem" has been fixed.

I went on my break this morning to Disney Store @ Vaughan Mills, to my surprise, short line up, plenty of Boba, a few Greivous, Vadar, Stormy, Anakin, Maul and unmasked Kylo.  Picked up one of each except for Anakin.  They look really nice and Heavy.

I went to the one at Square One and met oldmanben there.

They were sold out of fett but had the others.

Apparently these won't be as plentiful as I expected. I ended up grabbing one of each even though I only wanted grievous, lol.

If anyone happens to go and sees a fett, both myself and oldmanben would be grateful if you pick one up for us.

I was really upset at the Square One store - got there at ten past ten and Boba Fett was already sold out!  Apparently they had only 15 of each figure and they allowed each person to purchase 5 of each!  What collector needs five?  Only a scalper type would scoop up that many.  A limit of 2 per person would have been more appropriate.

As it happens I had to go up north so I stopped in at Vaughan Mills and I fared much better there, picking up a Boba for myself.

A big thank you to The Art of Sith for thinking of me.  Not many troopers would have made a special trip to help out another.

Reports from people that got Greivous the first time around were that he has trouble standing when taken out of the package.  Hopefully this little "problem" has been fixed.

I don't know what the specific problem was that was reported with the initial version, but the one I picked up today is utter garbage.

1. The upper left arm keeps falling at the slightest touch
2. The ankles are not moveable so it forces the legs into a pose that is awkward at best, with no possibility to stand
3. Even if the pose was "standable", the claws on the feet are soft plastic which gives no help at all and leaves a very small amount of a metal foot left to balance the entire figure. On top of that, the peg on the stand is very loose in the foot.
4. The cape is a joke and doesn't come anywhere close to fitting the figure properly around the neck

So all in all, extremely disappointed in this figure in every way. Looks good in the box I suppose. :(

Got the last 2 Boba Fett figures from the Market Mall store in Calgary. They may have had more in the back, but the shelf was empty when I left.

Disney store I went to had tons of all of these.  They had so many that they are in two locations in the store.  They had less Boba Fett than other characters, but still a lot regardless.

Very erratic distribution in my opinion.  Some stores got lots, others very limited quantities.  No sense to it.
