I would think by now that we have missed out.  Some TRU stores in Canada, and only a few, actually did get one one case each but they were snapped up very quickly.  I chased around to several stores in Ontario only to be told either they had come and gone, or that they didnít get any.
Luckily a fellow Snowtrooper found one for me.

I'd see posts that the Carbonized Mandalorian was available on the Toys R Us website, but I noticed today that the link's been taken down.
I've never seen one in store myself, nor do I know of anyone actually picking one up.

Has anyone here actually purchased a Carbonized Mandalorian from Toys R Us in-store? I'm wondering if I've missed out, or just need to keep waiting.

They sold out on the USA website a couple days ago but I see XXS and XS Dark Side as well as S and L Light Side are still available as of now on the Canada website.

 nice! how did u get the bubble on the inside to fit the figure ? i thought most custom jobs never had that. cool!

I use the original tray that came with the figure, and cut it down to be be small enough to used with clear tape to hold it to the inside bubble.  It looks surprisingly good. 

Every sheet I print has a square piece of the right colour in case I have a figure I don't have a tray for to do what others usually do = put the folded piece between the legs to keep it standing up.  Haven't had to use it yet.

Still trying to be optimistic - I'm almost certain I'll enjoy the first viewing (as I always have). 6:40pm Thursday night, Kitchener Fairway cinemas. My son Thomas & I, one more time. This is the way.

 this had to been allowed to leak as much as it has. they know its in a bad place so why not try to build as much hype as possible.

  the story seems ok. not great but ok.  only one part might be total cheese but i cant imagine they'd go that way with it.  will see what happens.

 i prob will go opening night so i can avoid smaller things that i dont want spoiled plus i am excited to see it. its still SW.

Based on what I have heard from these forms, mainly napseeker, here is where I think it will rank on my list:

1) Star Wars
2) Empire Strikes Back
3) Return of the Jedi
4) Rogue One
5) Revenge of the Sith
6) The Phantom Menace
7) Attack of the Clones
8) Solo
9) The Rise of Skywalker
10) The Force of Awakens
11) The Last Jedi

As someone who has read all the leaks, including the latest reshoots, I think fans will probably be okay with how this movie ends. 

As I said in the other thread, JJ wrote a modular script which allows him to make fixes (reshoots) to scenes that they later determine would anger fans and need to be revised.  And believe me, they made some stunning boneheaded storytelling mistakes in earlier versions of TROS that I feel have been somewhat corrected in the final cut.  It went from a shockingly bad story to an "okay, well it's no longer a flaming train wreck, it's just a bumper collision now."

Kylo's revised fate is far far better than what they originally planned.  Which is good, because I personally think of him as the protagonist of the sequels (because in terms of GOOD writing, the character who undergoes a trial, faces obstacles and slowly overcomes them while learning new things about themselves, is the character that you normally treat as the "hero" of the story).

The final cut of the movie definitely feels super-predictable, I will be shocked if anyone walks out of the theater and exclaims, "Wow! I didn't see THAT coming!" (in a positive way).  Honestly, you could skip watching the first 85% of the movie and just walk in for the final battle and denouement and you will not have any trouble following the story.  This movie is mostly just side-quests and time filler, leading up to the battle that you'd expect to see.

Disney is probably just hoping the movie is "safe" and not another TLJ (or in my case, TFA) that will permanently drive any remaining fans away from the franchise and buying SW merchandise, and that's what they've delivered.
