Happy New Year (in advance), everyone...  I think we've still got a long way to go before we're out the other side, but here's hoping that we can make it by supporting one another.

Stay safe and healthy - that's what matters most!

It's definitely disheartening to hear of people scooping up every single one of the 'hard to find' figures for resale.  With that said, I've been so amazed by the thoughtfulness of the members of this community.  The last few days have seen lots of people reaching out to help others find figures and I've been lucky enough to have people keep me in mind as well.

I hope to be able to return the favour when this covid craziness is done.  At this point my toy hunts are pretty much only through online scores, but I'm always happy to keep an eye out for things for fellow collectors.

May they year ahead bring us happier times with opportunities to celebrate - safely - with friends and family.  I have a feeling that, when it does happen, it'll rival the end of Return of the Jedi.  For the record, I'll be the cartwheeling Ewok.

As soon as I see the Walmart display, l'm gonna dump the whole display of VC figures in my shopping cart, and take them home to sell on Ebay at inflated prices, then I will call up my local Snowtroopers to tell them I have extras for purchase, and allow them to do a curbside pick-up at my place at no extra cost.

Don't forget the Holiday Trooper!  PORG WITH A SCARF!

For all you Black Series completists, here is another garbage Holiday figure for you to waste your money on.

Make sure to buy 3 or 4 of them per order....because if you buy only 1 or 2, they will most likely show up beat to hell in a bubble mailer.

I refuse to purchase Hasbro products like this. Don't complain later that there are only garbage Hasbro lines left on the store shelves, and no new Black Series or Vintage Collection figures are being produced. Supporting these Holiday figures and other crappy sub-lines will not help get the main movie or Mandolorian line figures made for the Black Series or Vintage Collection lines.

It definitely needs a porg with a scarf.

Asking the burning question here: has anyone seen the Holiday Snowtrooper (Walmart exclusive) or had theirs ship yet?  Asking for...a friend.


Plus:  it has a porg in a scarf! A SCARF!

I know!! That's the only reason I would accept buying this figure! That Porg with its scarf!!!  :tongue0024: But the scarf seems to be painted rather than sculpted, am I wrong?

I think youíre right. BUT A PORG WITH A SCARF!

(See, IanToronto? Iím not the only one...)

...if it makes anyone feel better, I'm still desperately awaiting an update on my preordered BS Holiday Snowtrooper from Walmart.  The date of its supposed shipping has already passed and there's no indication of what's going on with it.

I realize that the figures are godawful... but I need it to complete my tacky holiday decorations!

Did anyone ever see the droid, DJ R-3X or whatever? I notice theyíve removed him from the tru webpage.

I saw a sign at the checkout at TRU last night, with flyer corrections.  It said that DJ whatever-his-name-is won't be available until 2021

Iím not sure what impresses me more - that they know DJ exists or that they actually had people ask them enough about it to indicate a possible release date.

From #215 to the new recruits:  welcome!  Hopefully we'll be securing the Jawa with his cream eggs in no time!

I found 2 Hondo and 2 Chirrut at a local Walmart, 24.97$ yikes (They stayed there)

Ugh (to the price, not the find). This doesn't bode well if they don't modify it back down to the 17.97 price.

Darth Nihilus is up on the ebgames site for home delivery! Good luck!

I ordered from EB Games,  my first real preorder.  How are they typically at fulfilling preorders?  Also any idea what the freight is on a case of figures to Canada from BBTS?

I have never had a preorder go unfilled from them, either online or in store.

This was my experience until recently... they ended up canceling most of my Rebels BS figures and several from the Beskar Mandalorian wave. Now Iím paranoid every time I preorder! But I do have to say that the people working in the store are usually fantastic.
