I understand what everyone is saying but I disagree.  I have army built from time to time.  I always buy 2 troopers to start,  if am able to find more down the road I may buy more.  I feel that i should leave more for other collectors especially if its in high demand. Assuming I wanted to buy say 6 incinerator troopers and i walked into walmart and they had six.  I would only buy 2, otherwise I would feel selfish.

Waiting to hear back on my second order, which I placed before the one I received. With 7 figures. Had to contact custoemr service to inquire on this because it makes no sense to me that the initial order was not fulfilled before the second one. They are working on it they say. I just fear there won’t be any stock left once they figure that out... :/

I called customer service to find out the status of my order....and the VC Incinerator Trooper is on backorder....and I know of people who placed their order after me and have already received their figure(s). This is bulls**t.

Those are honourable feelings, but we can't very well hold people to our own personal moral codes. That will just lead to disappointment over & over, in every aspect of life.

Same feeling here. My first order was placed the very few minutes the item was available for pre-order. The second order was placed maybe 20 min later. Then it was pre-order sold out. The fact that my second order was filled before my initial order makes no sense and that’s what I said to C.S. when I reached out to them. Why the Hell are these orders not filled on a first come first served basis?? WTF? The guy told me they would make it up to me, that the figures will be shipped eary this week. I somehow don’t believe him. At all. It’s very frustrating. Now I have to tell one of my friends/brother that he might not get his figure at all. :( :( Way to go Walmart. Another successful exclusive. 😡

The wirse is that I had ordered these figures thru Walmart.com (USA) just moments before and Indecided toncancel my order after I pre-ordered from Walmart Canada. I should have kept it. Now I’m not only frustrated about Walmart, I also feel guilty not to have known better expecting something nice from the worst retailer ever. :(

There's no reason orders couldn't be handled first come first serve. It is a very simple logistical consideration. Just like how amazon cancelled my preorder for the beskar Mando, and then a couple months later had stock go up on their website again. I was lucky to have been online and got him. But otherwise I would have missed out while someone else who ordered weeks later got one. I've had other preorders on amazon sit for months before the item came in and I was fine with that. No reason to cancel when an item is still potentially available through wholesale.

Retailers do weird things and I dont know if there will ever be an explanation.

...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!

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?

You're starting to make me wish I'd ordered one, I mean, a Porg with a scarf! You just don't see that every day!

Luke's ROTJ saber hilt (139.99 USD), Ben Solo's saber hilt (139.99 USD) and the Skywalker Reforged saber hilt (129.99 USD) are available at shopDisney.com for the first time this morning. They were released in the theme parks in late 2019/early 2020 I believe.
Not cheap, but they come with a nice case.  You can buy saber blades as well if you want the full show.  I bought one blade awhile back and now I just pick up the hilts to keep the costs down while still getting lots of variety in the collection.

playtimetoys.com has some Black Friday 25% off discounts going right now. They have some Vintage Collection figures that I want, but the shipping price was more than I could swallow. I think shipping is free if you spend over $100, but I don’t have that much to spend. Here’s the link to their shop: https://www.playtimetoys.com/collections/star-wars
Any other Black Friday deals out there?

I was just going to order some TVC figures from these guys (Playtime Toys) this morning.  Last week it was free shipping in Canada for orders over $80.  Earlier today it was free shipping in Canada for orders over $100.  NOW it has been changed to free shipping over $150.  Also, TVC figures were 25% off earleir today.  Went to pay and back to $19.99.  I also emailed them about a month ago and they would not guarantee MINT condition packaging, only what was pulled from the case (whatever that means). I also believe this toy chain is in going out of business clearance.
