Yeah, my Gamestop Tie Fighter pilot came from a friend in the US.  I'd rather pay EBGames member retail though and not pay for shipping...haha.

Anyone know if EBGames will be getting that new Gamestop exclusive Imperial Rocket Trooper?

They  have been good at getting exclusives except for the actual Imperial Troops.  I don't think the Battlefront Tie Pilot ever made it here.

Hope the Rocket Trooper won't suffer that fate.

I hope so as well.  Though with the amount of exclusives in the 6' category this year, I might have to either plan a trip to Pennsylvania or rely on etailers to get some imported in.

Which is dumb. It's weird EBGames gets all kinds of other exclusives but sometime not their own.

Wouldn't surprise me. Pegs are so clogged with old stock in my local stores. I don't know when we'll see anything new. Vintage, black series, 5poa...  Doesn't matter the pegs are stuffed. TRU hasn't even been carrying new black series other than exclusives in over a year.

Could get harder and harder to collect in Canada at regular retail. Which means more expensive. I still rely on regular retail and their sale prices to offset the crazy high regular prices and the occasions I have to pay full price. Going full retail all the time becomes very expensive. Especially if you have to order from the US and pay shipping and maybe customs fees. I miss Legends since they were very reasonable and reliable.

There are great etailers out there. I don't want to turn this thread into that too much though  there are lots of threads here discussing individual e-tailers. 

If you are collecting SW though you might have to get used to the idea that you'll no longer get "the thrill of the hunt", because after next year (lets say summer 2020) I think I would place bets that SW merchandise is gonna be a super small area or off the shelves at everywhere but TRU, and no telling when they'll get their crap together.

I understand the thrill, I do.  It took me a long time to realize that it's not worth it, for me, at least.

The problem for 3 3/4 collecting is that many etailers choose to avoid 3 3/4 (especially 5POA) because the margins are too slim on them.  So if they start to disappear from shelves and not on any etailers sites, that's going to suck.

The wave of Resistance figures official release date in the US was the 15th. Has anyone spotted these anywhere here yet? I know it's still early, but so far I have seen no sign of them in the Amazon, Wal-Mart or Toys R Us online stores or at the local Wal-Mart. It's been a long time since I've seen any new 3 3/4 basic figures in stores here period. I wonder if this will be a hard to find final wave, if the basic line really is coming to an end?
