Well episode 5 was the best so far by more than a mile. Great stuff.

My girls both said the same thing. I thought it was ironic that the best episode of the Boba Fett series is the only one without him in it. Granted, there was a lot of pulling at the Baby Yoda heartstrings for them.

I was charged too.  I just hope they only charge shipping once cause I preordered the Shoretrooper set together with this.

In my experience, you do not get charged extra if they break up your order into multiple shipments.

If I'm reading this right, people can suspend disbelief on lightsabers, death stars, the force and a plethora of other things that science fiction fantasy usually asks the view to suspend disbelief on, but the ability of space ship with hyperspace speed capabilities being able to hover upside down because we've never seen it before is too much??

I was the exact opposite, I actually loved seeing the ship being maneuvered with such precision by the guy who's flown it most of his existence.  I was more trying to figure out why he thought it was still in there.  He crawled out wearing it, how would at fallen back in?

This. It didn't even cross my mind about the engines. Star Wars ships typically have 3 types of engines: hyperspace, sublight, and repulsorlift. It would be the repulsorlifts that would be the main use in this case. I have always understood these to be directed against the planet's gravity (per Wookieepedia), so regardless of the orientation of the ship/speeder it always points "down". It's what controls the vessel's altitude in a gravity well. Then the sublights and maneuvering thrusters provide the movement to and fro.

I'd love the last episode to be Boba turning the tables on everyone at the end, Peaky Blinders style, with a montage of how he set everyone up and puts all the wheels in motion and has been playing the fool the whole time. Then going total badass on everyone and we will all lose our minds like at the end of Mando season 2.

But most likely that will not happen, which I'm fine with too. I am enjoying the show just fine, and having fun watching my 2 girls get a kick out of it, learning more SW lore, and becoming bigger fans than before.

That scooter chase though... was the only part so far that really jarred me.

This WM release is so disorganized. I heard from one source that now WM Canada has declined the wave from Hasbro, but I saw a sighting today that said someone found a case of the DS Droid at an Ontario WM store. So some of them ARE showing up finally in stores, but none of the pre-orders have even been filled. What a mess. I cancelled all my orders and will be getting them another way.

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.

I ordered a 6Ē credits collection Kuiil  from Amazon on Tuesday and got delivery today just after noon.  It came in itís own box and was in perfect condition.

Lucky! I just had my 3rd attempt get marked again as "undeliverable" and returned by courier to Amazon for a refund. I'm convinced someone in the courier chain is just stealing them and claiming the box was damaged. 3 times in 3 weeks, regardless if I order by itself or with other items.

There is absolutely nothing deluxe about that Fett. This comes from the same people as the Rancor faceplant. What an insult.

Not just the usual website that complains about everything, but the respectable websites as well.

Just another example of how much Amazon sucks...

I recently tried to order the Credit Collection Kuiil. It supposedly shipped, then delivery date kept getting pushed back. Finally they decided it must be lost and I had to contact them for a refund. OK fine, I guess that happens from time to time. And it worked out for the better anyways, because I happened to be able to catch it on sale last week for my 2nd try, saving $10.

So this 2nd time I tried ordering it with 8 other items. 7 of those things arrived today, all loose in a single box (no air bags, etc). The other 2 things supposedly shipped separately and then were "undeliverable" and Amazon just decided to refund them automatically. These 2 items were Kuill and a Bounty Collection 2pk. (Both items coincidentally come in Hasbro shippers). I contacted them to see what happened, they just told me to re-order. Except I bought them on sale, and now they're back at regular price. They said to wait until the re-order gets delivered and then contact them to do a price adjustment as a "one-time exception". Like it's somehow my fault that their company and courier service sucks.

I know this same thing happened to a couple others when they tried ordering the Credit Collection Mando. Took 3+ orders just to get one to actually arrive. Is someone stealing these things? Are they obvious to pick out because of their Hasbro shippers? Or something about them that makes them extra susceptible to getting lost/damaged? Is Amazon printing their shipping labels on that Inspector Gadget style "this message will self-destruct" paper?

My Bad Batch 4 pack is pushed out to March now.  I guess I should be glad as I read some had their orders just cancelled outright.

Mine pushed to March as well. Though that really means nothing with Amazon. Still a good chance it gets cancelled, or even worse - it comes in stock when it finally releases, and our orders sit in "processing" or get "lost" while we watch the rest of the stock sell out and arrive at others' houses!  :speechless-smiley-004:

Just a PSA to anyone ordering from Amazon, especially MIB collectors - make sure you select the "send in Amazon packaging" when checking out. Seems Amazon is trying to save on any piece of extra expense possible now, including cardboard boxes. Today I received a Marvel Legends set, and they just slapped the shipping label right on the Hasbro packaging and sent it out like that. Luckily I am an opener but it's good to know that your stuff it out there for anyone to see (and possibly steal). I've noticed this packaging option under about 50% of my Amazon purchases lately, and usually select it but I guess I missed this one.

I haven't received any emails about my DSD/Luke/Tusken orders (I did 2 pre-orders, with 1 of each figure in each order, in the off chance that might help at least one set to not get crushed). Just checked their status online now, and both orders had been upgraded to "processing" within the last hour. So maybe they'll actually show up.

You ordered Rebel set from EB games?   I donít see them on the site.

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 for the info!
Just ordered mine!

Anyone knows if they'll get the Pulse exclusive Stormtrooper 4-pack also? Sadly pre-orders are sold out on Pulse :(
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 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.

....my Credit Collection Mandos are still sitting in the Mississauga facility.....Do I really need to call them?....seriously!!!

...and they are still stuck in the warehouse.

Wow, that sucks. I ordered one on Oct. 12 after reading your older posts about it. It shipped the next day and arrived on Oct. 15 by Canada Post. The figures are individually boxed in Hasbro shippers, which is what it arrived in. Mint condition. I ordered it with 2 other items, and they all arrived in the same box.
