 Update - now out of stock at ebgames.ca
If you wanted one, start checking the brick and mortar stores as they will be getting them as well if history repeats itself.

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.

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...

Ok so we all bought the 40th Vintage Carded figures last year, wether or not you really collect 6 inch.
And you bought a Vader in the EarlyBird box. But did you buy another Vader to take out of the EarlyBird box to display carded?  I know some have like myself found second Vader sets at my local TRU for around $28 bucks.

Here is your chance to get it online at $22.00 and maybe cheaper with a EB Games VIP EDGE Card.

Wolffe scheduled for May 1st release. 

Has unique SKU# 735412 so it should be easier to find as it won't be mixed in with regular BS stuff.

Do we know if the Gamorrean Guard has a SKU/release date yet?

So I called up the EBGames that will put Commander Wolffe on hold for me to confirm that it is on order for me and they confirmed it is. 

They have 3  that are on the way and all 3 are spoken for.  So if you want one, I think it would be good idea to just call all the stores around you until you find one willing to put it on hold. 

I know the first one I called said it's first come first serve and they aren't taking any pre-orders, but the second store I called accepted it.

I went on Monday to my store and they had already broken the street date and sold them the previous Friday when they came in. He looked up local stock and said the website is showing lots available - however the online listing has not gone live yet. He checked the system and it allowed him to pre-order one for me (I just had to put down $5). So hopefully it arrives soon before he disappears completely, in case something gets canceled along the way and I have to track down another. It's great that ebgames is getting more into these, but it would be nice if they were more consistent in putting up preorders online. I got most of their exclusives that way, and it was nice and hassle-free.

Picked up my Wolffe last night.  Nice looking figure.  Here's some pics with Rex.

I did find that his helmet profile seems weird.  It seems too flat in my opinion, unless that is how his helmet should look.  I just don't remember it being so flat before.

His kama is too short too.  I didn't think it looked too bad until I put him together with Rex.

I picked up mine this morning and another TVC Hoth rebel trooper.
I asked and looked in their binder book for upcoming Star Wars figures, but there wasn't any dates yet.
But she did see the Garmorean Guard in there system but can't order yet. Does any one know the scu number for ebgames and the G Gaurd ? She tell me the price $44.9?.

99% sure it's Bespin Leia. My store had her out on the shelf already today and was calling up people for their pre-orders while I was standing there. I had gone there to pre-order myself, but left with one off the floor instead. Nice looking figure!

The SKU number for the “Conan” black series figure at EB Games is740789 which is different than the Bespin Leia.  Release date for this preorder is Oct 1 and the price is showing as $39.99.  This is the figure I believe will be Moloch.

Goes without saying, but if anyone finds Bespin Leia (red/pink gown) at EB, I'd like to know it's available.

EDITED: Appears I'm losing my mind - I thought a friend of mine told me they found 6" Leia Bespin at Target in the US, and I believed we were getting Leia Bespin GOWN this year - but now I can't find anything. Is that figure not coming? In my defence, I'm old enough to be going senile.....  :speechless-smiley-004:

No there is a Bespin Escape Leia.  Its basically Hoth Leia without the yellowish vest.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: jjreason on December 08, 2018, 11:15:56 AM
Yes, I managed to track her down - just looking for Hoth Leia now, I guess Bespin Gown was a figment of my fanboy imagination.  :(
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: Darth Cujo on December 08, 2018, 11:46:02 AM
The initial rumors just stated "Bespin Leia" so there was speculation it was going to be bespin gown but it ended up being bespin escape.

I find bespin escape just different enough (vest, boots, hair, gloves), but would have preferred bespin gown.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: jjreason on December 09, 2018, 11:16:38 PM
I'm very happy with Bespin Escape - looking forward to finding Hoth Leia so I can do a compare/contrast with the faces - the Bespin Escape one I got is just gorgeous.

They have had some good ones through out 2018, but it depends what your into.
I remember they have had on their "FIVE DOLLAR DEAL FRIDAYS" all POPS $5,  black series 6" Luke on rock set $5, old 5poa figures $5, tiki Star Wars mugs $5,  and now TVC $5.

Every Friday is $5 Friday.  The items that are part of the promo change week to week. Pop!s, action figures, wallets, t-shirts.  I just go on the website on Friday mornings and see what's listed under the "on sale" tab.  If it's on the site for $5, it's $5 in store also.

Also was at Target in Niagara Falls U S. of A. today...and the Molochs are 'shelf warming' like crazy, and they are all beat to hell with case cutter slits on top of the packaging....I found 2 that were acceptable.

Glad i got him but dont like how he is more expensive.

They seem to be doing this with the Walgreens exclusives lately - Marvel Legends as well.
I don't think they do it with the Target exclusives, but we haven't had one of those for a little while now.
I assume their cost is likely a bit higher for these as they probably need to pony up a bit more cash for them.
Glad we at least get them here now - I used to order them through Walgreens' website but that is getting less consistently stocked.

Yeah my store only had the Revan and Stormtrooper for me. I ordered on Feb. 2. Of the three, the battle droid is the one I was least excited about, so I'll survive if they never get more in. Or maybe it'll pop up in stock on Gamestop's site and I can order from there.

Dropped by EB today and asked about the blue Stormtrooper.  Unfortunately, the lady told me all they have is what was pre-ordered.  No idea if they will get more.

I guess if they don't, that's fine.  I would have saved $30 not buying a repainted Stormtrooper.

You'll actually save $35+ (unless you have the Edge card). Was kind of painful picking up just 2 figures. I can't imagine being a 2-of-each collector. I'd have to be a lot more choosy in what I buy.

Any comments?

No new Mandalorian figures at EB Games yet.  They did get in three of their exclusive figures last week including a heavy battle droid, Darth Revan and a Blue/White Commander I believe.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: Darth Woo on March 09, 2020, 05:12:43 PM
I just got a call that my Mando Imp Troop Transport is ready for pickup. 

When I asked about the Stormtrooper Commander at two locations and both told me that they felt that EB botched this exclusive. 

They were telling me they didn't get enough and people are still scrambling to get them even though they pre-ordered.  They both did say that they had put in a request for a re-order.  See what  happens.

Post by: Darth Woo on April 17, 2020, 07:47:56 PM
I already find it hard to justify $34.99.  $49.99 is just too much and I wouldn't pay that. 

The Purge Trooper I think was $39.99.  Bit the bullet and bought two of him.  Really needed them so I have one flanking 2nd Sister on each side.

When stores re-open, will I be able to pick-up my pre-order?

Absolutely. We will hold your reservation until our stores re-open, and you will receive any applicable pre-order bonus items at that time.

Please note that the item you pre-ordered may not be available in store immediately when our stores re-open, as all new inventory is currently being stored at our Distribution Centre. After stores re-open, we will ship the item you pre-ordered to the store where you made the reservation, and one of our associates will contact you by telephone when your order is ready for pick-up.

If you would like to receive the item you pre-ordered now, please feel free to place a new order at EBGames.ca (where stock is available) and we will ship the item directly to your home with contactless delivery. When our stores re-open, you will have the opportunity to cancel your pre-order, move your pre-order deposit (if applicable) to another product purchase, or cancel your pre-order and receive a refund for your pre-order deposit (if applicable).

Yes, I tried it with a single Dark Crystal figure last Fall. It worked, but it was a pain in the a$$. The employee didn't know what to do, they had to wait for the store manager to get back from his lunch break. Then they applied the credit. What a waste of time. For 2$ off. But I wanted to prove a point that they should apply the discount directly on the website...

I’m in the same camp as you Superstar.   I preordered the Probe Droid from Ebgames in store months ago, but with the Covid Crisis I was second guessing if that order would materialize.  Then , like you, I preordered on Walmart.ca website, but nothing seemed to result from that either.
On a side note, I noticed Canadian etailer “Redshift7” had 65 of them in hand and within 4 or 5 days they sold through. Which is great for them but I thought it was pretty quick. Faster then usual.
So when I noticed it up on Ebgames website for home delivery a week ago, I ordered it for a third time and as of yesterday, I finally received word/tracking that it’s on its way. 
So I think we are all experiencing the same, but rest assured, I think with a little extra patience they will all show up.  Mint in box?  That’s another Story! .. lol

This is interesting. I guess more people are ordering online. And with the state of action figure collecting now I find it difficult to get much on sale anymore. And im not collecting as much as i used to so paying full price on stuff is less painful. At this point i have been ordering from amazon for openers (free shipping) and ordering from specialty stores for stuff i want mint in package (which isnt very much theSe days).

I also pre-ordered the Probe Droid from EB games for in store pick up.   I was never phoned for pick up and they shut down as these were arriving.  The Cara Dune figure from Wal mart was shipped in a very small cardboard box.  I was very lucky that mine was still MINT.  However, it was just pushed into the bottom of the cardboard box so that the top of the card was sitting CURVED about 1 inch up the side of the box. An air bubble was placed inside between the bubble and card front.  I did have to flatten the card as it was curved just like a hockey stick.

UPS is the worse. I ordered some Inkjet printing cartridges on May 9th from Amazon and the seller, based in Toronto, mailed them 3 days late, thus used UPS to "improve" delivery which was supposed to occur between Wednesday May 13th and Friday May 16th. He mailed them on Tuesday night May 12th. UPS has had the package in transit since then, but has been stalling on this and ever since that day. Everyday I receive a warning saying the delivery has been postpone to an unknown date. We're May 25th and I have yet to receive my package. It's been 16 days!!! It's a real nightmare. The seller should have used regular Canada Post. I would have my package now.  >:(

Ha, I had an order from amazon split in two. 1st shipment sent by UPS, took two weeks, over a week of which it was sitting with UPS 10 minutes from my house. The second part of my order shipped canada post 2 days after the first and arrived within two days, more than a week before the UPS shipment arrived.

Sometimes Canadapost will send your parcel way out of the way to a sorting depot before it goes out for delivery to your place. Hopefully they streamlined it for you & it got there ok or does soon!

jj, I also phoned my local EB Games and they said they are still expecting the Probe Droid sometime soon, so hang in there.  I also received The Black Series General Grievous I ordered from TRU about 1 1/2 week ago.  There was some shelf wear on the bottom and it looked like somebody had coughed on the clear plastic window, which was really gross.  I believe it shipped shipped directly from a Montreal area store, which was kind of weird.  I did get TRU to price match their usual 20% off sale price for this week.

Yeah sounds like maybe some of those went "live" too early or something. EB Games pre-order system bit of a mess as usual. I got on order in for Nihilus on Friday morning.

Don't give up hope - I got a call & picked up my Probe Droid yesterday (June 12th). I was also asked to look through the list of pending pre-orders & chose to get both Snowspeeder Luke & EpVI Vader brought in - no deposit required which was different. I hope they still call me & let me have first dibs at the figures when they arrive!

My phoned in orders never show up on the website.  I did get Nihilus, Jango and Shadow Stormtrooper. If Shadow Trooper is identical to the overpriced original one, then I'll just pass. Hoping Jango isnt just a repaint.

Did they screw up your order too?

I sent an e-mail to their customer service, got a canned response and still haven't heard from them.

I was supposed to get a Revan and a Child. The package arrives and it's a manila bubble envelop. Way too small for a 6 inch figure. I took a picture and sent it to them.

Good Luck.

Post by: Darth Cujo on July 31, 2020, 03:33:07 PM
So the edge discount doesnt apply to online orders?I've been contemplating getting a card beyond my free one but heard this and it totally defeats the purpose of ordering online. Makes no sense. Are they at least working on that or do they just not care?

If I could get10% off I'd probably be content to buy everything from them. But not if I have to physically go in and conduct another transaction for everything I buy online. :sign0065: its 2020 not 2005. And with covid if I don't have to go to a store all the better.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: Darth Woo on July 31, 2020, 03:57:46 PM
Yeah, but when I pre-order online to pick up in-store, I only pay $5 first and I get the discount when I pay the balance.  Sucks that online orders where you pay everything first, you don't get a discount.

^^^
This x 100

Funny thing is, the discount does apply online, but only for certain, very select things. For instance, they just advertised a 20% off sale for several of the 80th Anniversary Marvel Legends sets (trying to clear them out). Part of the promotion was that your Edge discount would stack with the sale if you login and order online. So they do allow it, but not for nearly as much as they do for in-store purchases. I wonder if this is somehow is to cut down on people sharing their loyalty memberships? If so, it's not very effective. In fact, it's probably easier to use other people's discounts in store. You don't even need the card, just tell the clerk the phone number associated with the account. They don't care if it's yours or not. I've even stood at the till and used my Edge card to help a random person next to me, the clerk even encouraged it.

The only other reason I can think of is, maybe it's a way for them to push traffic through their physical stores. I've heard mention from workers at several retail chains over the years that they don't like it when customers buy from the website vs. their local store. It affects the store's sales numbers, and makes them look like they're under-performing. Particularly for clothing stores, where customers will go in, try stuff on to check for fit, then go home and order everything through the website.

In EB Games' case, their website sucks enough that usually the only things I want to order from there are pre-orders. A lot of their regular-wave single figures aren't even listed accurately (usually a "random pick" from a certain wave), so anything like that I'd still go into the store for. Plus I like to browse, and each location has different stock, especially when it comes to older figures and used games.

If EB was to give their website a major upgrade, list everything properly, and then even tie-in online orders to be able to pull from physical stock on store shelves rather than just warehouse stock (and not penalize the store for having it count as a web transaction), there might be less concern about website traffic stealing from foot traffic, though it would probably make the physical store space somewhat redundant.

But honestly, this is going to happen within the next few years anyways. By the end of this next game console generation (PS5 & new Xbox this winter), physical copies of games will become a thing of the past (to my chagrin). New & used games is a major part of EB's sales model. Without that, they'll basically just be left with the hardware, toys, collectibles and other gamer/pop culture related merchandise. I can see them closing A LOT of their stores and just going mainly online if they want to survive as a company. Similar to what Davids Tea just announced. So why not build a loyal online customer base NOW, especially while everyone has increased their online activity, get them in the habit of using your site as much as possible, and provide the Edge discount for everything there?
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: Darth Woo on July 31, 2020, 06:51:43 PM
I asked before and they just said they are on a different system.  Funny thing too was that when I picked up my Stormtrooper today, they couldn't find any record of it when I gave my Edge Card to scan.

Then I said I ordered it online and she's like, oh, and then looked up my name instead and told me that online orders will generate a different account number, and then told me how stupid that was, which I didn't disagree.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: jjreason on August 01, 2020, 10:06:57 AM
EB stands a good chance of going the way of Blockbuster - I think you're exactly right, they've been diversifying their offerings in preparation for games to go online purchase only for the last few years.

Console sales aren't real money makers afaik & I don't think their DragonballZ gum dispensers are going to be enough to keep them in business, but hopefully I'm wrong. I like visiting the stores.

I agree EB Games business model is in trouble. We have seen it with all the video rental places and the HMV's. Without physical games it is only a matter of time before this chain closes. Online sales may help them but they sure need to improve that experience.

The SKU is 755175. But apparently it was one of those really limited releases here. Pre-orders were closed quickly, and stores aren't getting many/any extras at this time. Your store manager might be able to request some from the warehouse stock for you, if there's any quantity available there. Pretty annoying.

That's what I've been told.

Quantities of everything are very small for the Canadian market. I've heard rumors that Hasbro Canada is getting very small numbers of everything, probably because retailers have reduced their orders drastically this year. In the meantime, stock is flowing quite well in the US, which makes no sense given most new items get on clearance after being on pegs 2-3 weeks.

Basically, if yu see something on the pegs, don't ask yourself if it'd be better to wait for clearance sales. Ask yourself if you want it at all. Because there might not be any new stock let for stores to do these sales. And chances are there won't be restock at all either...  :-\

hmm one I preorder was 755111. clonetrooper lt. says.

That's the Kamino clone from the next regular-release wave that should be showing up any day now too:
https://www.ebgames.ca/Toys-Collectibles/Games/875803
Showing up any day? But the release date has been pushed back to October 1. Honestly with the amount that EB has pushed these figures back I'm not sure they'll even make that date.

I actually just saw this guy and most of the wave at my local Walmart.  EB should get them soon if that's the case.

At my local EB, the manager pre-ordered the Beskar mando and he told me tat everytin that was pre-ordered after june 5th (or is it july 5th) was cancelled, including his mando. Apparently, quantity was very small and they won't be getting them in stores.

That's what I've been told.

Yep. Most of my Rebels BS wave got cancelled by EB as was my Beskar Mandalorian.

That's the price point for their "Deluxe" figures. Like the Probe droid, etc. And yes, way too expensive.

That Boba counts as a "deluxe" figure like the Gammorean or Grievous.... but the bonuses are pretty slim this time around. You get fire effect & grappling hook on rope effect pieces that can attach as well as a second blaster rifle that is lightsaber damaged.

I think it is also at least partially a new sculpt, if not entirely. So there's that, but a lot of regular line figures are also new sculpts so to me that doesn't really hold up.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: Darth Cujo on September 27, 2020, 04:48:23 PM
Boba being a deluxe figure is a total crock. I dont care if it's new tooling. There are not many accessories. They charge full price for an ewok or a jawa, why charge more for a regular size figure?

This is Hasbro milking the popularity of boba fett. Complete BS as far as I'm concerned.
Title: Re: EBGames UPDATE
Post by: bm459 on September 27, 2020, 04:50:53 PM
100% a cash grab. It's a nice looking figure, but I'm not going to give in to Hasbro on this one. It's insulting. Anyone can see that it's not any true "deluxe" figure. The only thing deluxe about this is the price.

Collecting is sure getting expensive. $70 for 3 vintage collection clones seems way to much. I may as well just switch over to just Hot Toys/Sideshow stuff. Those are expensive as well but I feel like I am getting more and at a high quality.

Ha if that is the case I suppose it could be a nice bonus if I decided to sell it. Otherwise no, it still kinda ruins the look. For the same reason prefer no glare glass when framing photos and posters.

Is that actually the case though? The only in hand photos I've seen online have the reflective finish. All non-reflective images are the Hasbro press photos.

Hi DarthMark , the Vintage Collection 501st Clone 3Pack was supposedly a hasbro pulsecon online exclusive. Pulsecon was hasbro's showcase for upcoming products that was held last Friday and Saturday with the exclusives being sold starting last Wednesday. The Clone 3 pack sold out early on Thursday but then oddly they showed up at Ebgames.ca just this Monday. Ask your local eb store to see if they can get any in, it couldn't hurt and since the quantities are limited you could end up being the squeaky wheel.

Why are they charging the same as Vintage Collection in Canada? This was the same with the walmart ESB ones (which I still have never seen). Is it Hasbro Canada screwing us? They're cheaper than Vintage in the US.

I am primarily OT collecting but these look great. Tempting until I saw the price.

My brother had actually called me during that flash sale and noted that the price of  one (and only one) of the Skiffs at his EB games was $24.99+tax (while the rest were still regular priced). 

And no, the box was in mint condition. He even said that the other boxes of the regular-priced Skiffs were in slightly worse shape than the one that was on sale.

My Armorer figure arrived today via Purolator in the same padded envelope as Moff Gideon had two days ago.  It was in near perfect condition except for one tiny crease above the peg hole.  It was probably that way before they sent it.

I never ordered Mando cause I got the Walmart one. Now I wish I did get him cause the shiny new armour looks nice.

I also thought only the Walmart one had the jetpack. Didn't realize the Beskar one had the jetpack too.

Oh well, hope I find it in the wild. At least l have the Walmart one.

Why do these stores ship there TVC figures in a padded envelope (I know to save on shipping costs)?  Both of my Gideons (nice figure) from EB Games were shipped in separate padded envelopes (ordered together) and the cards were totally destroyed.  I cannot stand buying online.  I am returning them, but I do not like wasting my time driving to an EB Games store in the middle of a pandemic and being grilled about why I am returning something.  I expect my Armorer and Mandalorian TVC figures from EB games will also be delivered destroyed tomorrow.  This online ordering is crap!

It seems that Hasbro thinks only TVC style packaging sells now.
This is just speculation but,
From there point of view regardless of whether the lines were 5poa or not TLJ and TROS didn't exceed sales goals like they should have.
Even the first wave of TVC in 2018 were peg warmers and most of those were TFA and TLJ

The vintage style packaging must cause the biggest reaction from buyers.... but eventually they will hit the point where people will give up trying to have complete collections if they keep watering it down.

I don't have a problem with everything being on vintage cardbacks. They are easily the nicest and should be universal as far as I'm concerned. But they might be better with an EU logo (which apparently Disney refuses to allow), or something representing their entertainment source. This came up in the recent Q&A some sites had with Hasbro.

The only vintage collection I "need" to have are ones from the OT. Anything else I get if I like it. I have a couple Mando and other figures on vintage cards but I'm only an OT completist. Nowadays you can't be a vintage collection completist without being completely obsessive and/or spending a fortune. I've now had two waves of vintage canceled on me (plus a third I paid for and never received) which I now will likely not be able to fill outside the secondary market. So some of those figures I thought were cool but aren't OT I will now skip. I'm not jumping through hoops and spending extra $$$ on stuff I should have simply received. Hasbro is throwing money away because they still don't know how to handle distribution. They should be embarrassed. It's bad enough paying the regular retail now but I don't mind paying full retail if I can actually get the stuff I pre-order.

Sorry bit of a rant there.... I'm just tired of jumping through hoops to collect something when it used to be fun.

The effort required to keep up has gone completely off the charts. I personally am not even able to keep track of everything that's supposed to come out these days, let alone get all of it. I'm focusing on ESB figures & OT Imperials in the 6" format & whatever few Vintage 3.75" figures I can get my hands on that have cards I don't have a remake of yet. There isn't much for me left to get, honestly, and I'm more & more ok with that.

EBGmes...  :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004:

I ordered a few extra Gaming Greats TVC figures. 1 Scout Trooper, 2x Purge Troopers, 1x Battle Droid. Allat the same time, same order.

Yesterday, I received my Scout Trooper.

Today will receive my 2 Purge Troopers.

Later this week, my Battle Droid.

Why 3 distinct packets for this order? Why not ship them altogether? Especially since they ship he same day or no more than 1-2 days apart? WTF EBGames?? Is it too much logistics for you to handle??

I have no complaint (for now) regarding the figure I got. The Scout Trooper was in perfect condition, no thanks to the big box with minimum bubble packing protection. Luck is responsible for the good condition, probably also because the mailman was a mail lady (and maybe more cautious when handling the packages?(

Anyway, shiping all products of the same order separately defies any logic. I would understand if delivery dates were spread over weeks. But in this case?

Anyway...

I wonder how much money their logistics department costs them.  You'd think there is a minimum order amount for the free shipping so they can consolidate.

However, I ordered 3 Marvel Legends figures in one order.  They shipped all 3 individually and each one was in a box big enough for all 3 figures.  Two were shipped together one day and the 3rd the next day. 

The 2 on the same day was on the same shipment too as the tracking shows package 1 of 2 and 2 of 2.

I ordered a bunch of Gaming Greats TVC figures. 5 figures total. I receive them in 4 different boxes. 3 boxes containing one single figure, the 4th containing 2 figures. All were from the very same order.

Received a first box containing 1 figure on Monday.

Received the last 3 boxes yesterday at lunch time from the same Purolator truck.

1 single box could have easily contained all 5 figures. In fact, one of the box was the Hasbro TVC solid case box that they probably received these figures from Hasbro (VIN "Marker", whoever that is)

If they miss calling you or call and you miss  the call or don't get the message, they make it available to anyone.

Happened to me once and told them they never called me.  They actually found the item at a different EB store and had them ship it over for me.

So, what do you guys think of the Gaming Greats figures?  I just couldn't bring myself to paying $20+tax for them.  However, I might decide to get the Electrostaff Purgetrooper maybe.

Hasbro leaving out the pistol for the GG Scout Trooper was enough to get me to pass on that one though.  I guess I'm weird in that sense...haha.  Maybe if they didn't raise the price as well, I may still have considered it.

I was wondering that too, along with the rebel army builder pack. I fear they will be treated differently than the pulsecon exclusives as I don't think they are really event exclusive. They're just a general pulse exclusive. Maybe they'll do another run of stormtroopers? They'd be dumb not to.

I was wondering that too, along with the rebel army builder pack. I fear they will be treated differently than the pulsecon exclusives as I don't think they are really event exclusive. They're just a general pulse exclusive. Maybe they'll do another run of stormtroopers? They'd be dumb not to.

Those ar ShopDisney exclusives. I tried to order one but shipping and customs was more than the actual figures. Unfortunately, Disney doesn't have a Canadian distribution center so everything comes from the US making it too expensive to make it worth our while to order.

I think you are right, I doubt they will be sold anywhere but Pulse. They are "cheaper" army builder packs similar to the troop builders they've been doing for Marvel Legends recently (AIM Soldier, Hydra Soldier, Hand Ninja, Hellfire Guard, Skrull, etc). None of those were available elsewhere, but they they do end up producing more runs eventually. It takes awhile and they tend to sell out pretty quickly again - I don't understand why they don't produce more, I guess Hasbro doesn't like money? Anyways, I ordered 2 of the Rebel sets from Pulse, didn't really need more Stormtroopers.

I ordered 1 set of rebels. I have 2 already from  the 2 Tantive sets I have, so should have a good number for a battle scene!

I think the comment was a reply to mine from the previous page, where I said that I had ordered a set from Pulse. I believe iWookiee also ordered from there.

Thanks.  Ive looked at Pulse site, and it seems to only be for US and UK residents.

It's open to Canadian residents too.  We just pay an arm and a leg for shipping and then customs.  That's why I'm skipping all these army builder sets completely.

Now we wait and eventually get to play Canada Post damage your figure roulette. I have not had great luck with ebgames but no where near as bad as amazon.

Post by: Darth Woo on October 29, 2021, 06:29:54 PM
My EBGames stuff comes through Purolator most of the time and is generally good.

Amazon on the other hand, it's more "will I actually get my package" roulette.

On another note, Gaming Greats Boss is starting to ship.  Didn't expect him to ship so soon.

Guessing you ordered through Amazon.com? How much more expensive is it doing it that way?

I was gonna pass but since he's available again, I decided to get it.  I'd rather regret getting it than regret not getting it.

I was charged too. Release date now showing as November 22.

Yeah, the cancel order option is gone.

It was an impulse buy but I don't regret it. I originally was hesitant cause I already made a custom Emperor. However, it's nice to get the official release.

Me too. I just noticed they shipped express instead of ground. My previous package is stuck somewhere so it's nice they shipped express cause I live in BC.

My Emperor just arrived.  Glad they shipped it by air.  My previous shipment that shipped early last week is stuck in transit.

Just realized my Cantina set just shipped too.

Because it's Hasbro.  :speechless-smiley-004: :crazy: Honestly, I don't know how this price can be justified. I'm a huge Boba Fett fan, but I would never pay this much for a 3.75" figure. This is the price of a TBS 6" figure now. Deluxe should mean including the Throne since Fennec comes with the bottle of spotchka. This is exactly what you would have seen included in the old Deluxe Saga Collection figures from 2002.

I can't pay that much for that figure. It's just beyond reason. I love that figure but can't justify the price. Glad it sold out so that decision is out of my hands.

I actually just ordered it on Amazon. Gives me time to really think about it first.

My Boss figure that I thought I cancelled just shipped...haha.  I put him in an order with the Jet Trooper but cancelled the order cause I wasn't happy with the Jet Trooper (which I eventually ended up buying in store).   Didn't realize the Boss didn't get cancelled.  No big deal.  I don't mind the figure.  Was just a little disappointed that it's basically a Hunter repaint.

Two of the Battlefront figures sold out while I was logging in.  Guess I'm passing on them as I'm not paying for shipping to get one and I'm not buying other stuff just to get free shipping.

Other places will have them. Toy Snowman has them still for pre-order. They seem to only be single vendor exclusives in the States.
