Will the Fan Expo exclusives be available at EB Games stores or their online site?
i read another post where someone said they preordered the exclusives online or in store, I don't see any links on line though.

They won't be.

Yeah last years exclusives were ho-hum though, and all were slightly to moderately overpriced.

 Fett has everything going for it - its Vintage theme, its proper price and of course, its Fett!

In retrospect its not surprising bean counters would compare to last year and get it wrong.

Yeah was completely disappointed with the fact that fett was gone before the general public got in and it seems like it was this way on both day and wouldn't be surprised if it happens on the next 2..

Did they have this issue as SDCC as well?  Or did Hasbro ship most of the stock to D23 instead of to Fan Expo???

I understand they want to limit the amount sold on each day to let people get a chance, but when you go right to the EB Games booth when the doors opened and you can't get one then that is bad planning on either EB Games or Hasbro's part.

To me its seems like its a combination of both since these will be available online on Pulse in a couple of week, which again will not allow anyone to get these if it goes the way of the Phantom Menace figures..

This is the first year EB Games has sold and i've never had an issue in the past when it was Toys R Us, so something has changed and not for the better.

I went to the Hasbro panel and it didn't sound like they were concerned about this when someone mentioned it sold out in 10 minutes, the comment was a joke about being "available while supplies last".

And the fact they are still selling the past years exclusives means the either over produced last year or under produced this year.  And since it was Fett, they should have known they would have had no issue selling them if they were working about leftovers again..

Really shows that Hasbro has no clue as to what people will or will not buy..

I heard The Fett was gone in 10 minutes, at 9:10am or something.
It opens at 10 for crying out load.

There are a couple of things that bother me about this - either:

1) If there are THAT few of these to go around, we are entering a new era of crap exclusive distribution.  Was not much of a problem before - they'd often run out on Saturday, but not before doors open to non VIP members!

2) If there are THAT many people who are soaking these up in Canada (even the GTA area) then why the hell are they not on these forums?!  We need to do a better job of spreading the word.  I think next Fan Expo it should be our goal to hit EVERY vendor selling SW toys (and I mean the ones with selection - people who would care about this forum) to spread the word.   

I think it's a little of both, but #2 I think is something we can do something about!

That was actually exactly what they had.  Wondering why we didn't get Yakface since he's on the cardback.

I said it in another thread - seems unlikely that wave will make it to Canada.

Picked up 2 VC Rogue One Stormtroopers at EB yesterday.  They had the whole wave except for Yakface.

I don't believe Yakface is in the case assortment that eb is getting.

I think it's:

2X Lando
2X Stormtrooper
2X Chewbacca
1X Praetorian Guard
1X Phasma
