Well its been about 2 1/2 weeks since I ordered the HASCON Exclusive TBS 6” Captain Rex from HasbroToyShop (within the first minute of it going live) and my order arrived today. They were actually packed pretty well in a oversized box with air pillows and they made the Fedex trip without getting smashed or crushed.
I didn't really mind waiting the extra time for these if Hasbro is going to make these and future exclusives in larger numbers so more fans have a chance to purchase them.Add a comment

Wondering where your GameStop Exclusive Black Series 6" Snoke order is? Well the ship date has changed yet again. Originally it was up for preorder with a ship date of 9/1, then 9/25, then 9/29, and now 10/2. Hopefully the release date does not slip anymore.Add a comment
Just got home and found the Toys R Us Exclusive Black Series 6" Admiral Ackbar and First Order Officer 2-Packs at my door step. I optioned for their free shipping method and they arrived mint in a oversized box with air pillows.
I still have yet to see these at my local brick and mortar Toys R Us stores, but pretty sure they will eventually make their way to store shelves.Add a comment

If your still in need of The Black Series 40th Anniversary 6" Wave 2, you can now preorder them from select retailers such as BigBadToyStore.com. Thought these were out of production and a bit confused?
Here is a chat transcript from BBTS that was provided by one of our readers "Alex" which explains whats going on and why this wave has returned:
"They did sell out of this wave, but we and several other companies worked with Hasbro to get another run made. We are very happy to have additional stock to fill ALL our past orders as well as extra stock for new orders"
I have yet to see any other retailers put up preorders this evening, but here is whats available for BBTS:
• TBS 40th Anniversary 6" Wave 2 - case $159.99
• TBS 40th Anniversary 6" Wave 2 - set of 6 $139.99
• TBS 40th Anniversary 6" Death Squad Commander - $19.99
• TBS 40th Anniversary 6" Jawa - $19.99
Not sure how big of a run will be made, so don't wait to long to preorder.Add a comment

Stopped by one of my local Houston Walgreens this evening looking for their Exclusive Black Series 6" Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit) figure, but they didn't have any in stock, so I had them do a District search using WIC# 988181 and the search resulted with 9 other stores within 10 miles that had them in stock. Each store that had them in the District had 9 in stock.
So I took a chance and went to one of the stores and lo and behold there were 9 Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit) figures on the shelf, so I grabbed 2 and went to checkout.
While waiting in line the cashier (Possibly the Manger) said:
"Those are not suppose to be out for sale yet. They have a shelf date of 10/1/17, per the shipping box and they also received a memo, not to sell these till 10/1/17"
"I don't know who put them out, but I will let you go ahead and buy them since they were put out, but I will go take the rest off the shelf and put them in the back until October"
When he rang me up, there was no issue with the register stating "Do Not Sell" or anything.
Anyways if you do locate a store that has these in stock and they are not on the shelf, its probably because the employees followed the street date and they are in the back room. Happy Hunting!
Update: One of our readers that works at a Walgreens has stated the box has a street date of 10/3/17 and not a date of 10/1/17 that was given to me by my local store employee.Add a comment
So its been about 4 days now, since HasbroToyShop.com took orders for the HASCON Exclusive Black Series 6” Captain Rex figure and my email box has been blowing up with concerns about people's orders not shipping.
Typically in the past HasbroToyShop processed and shipped Convention Exclusives within a day or two, so people are starting to worry their order may have issues since its been 4 days already.
Now some people's orders did process and were sent tracking information and some have even received their orders already, but there seems to be a large amount of people waiting still, including myself.
I did contact HasbroToyShop's Customer Services a few times during the week to see why my order is being held up and got the following response
"There are no issues with your order, it will be filled"
"We had a Extremely Large amount of orders due to the increased production of this product, causing orders to take longer then normal"
So hopefully they are truly backed up with orders and we will see orders filled next week for those waiting.Add a comment

I did a little research and made a few phone calls and obtained the UPC and Walgreens WIC number which can be use to check your local stores for their Exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit) figure. Some stores in California have already received these and they should be making their way to other stores across the Nation soon. Price is $19.99 each.
Anyways here are the numbers you will need. You will just need the WIC# when checking your local stores, but I included the UPC as well:
• WIC # 988181
• UPC: 630509602797
Remember you heard it hear first and please don't copy and paste our info without giving us credit. ThxAdd a comment
Found a packaging variant for The Last Jedi 3.75-Inch Yoda figure for those interested. Hasbro has changed the layout of Yoda's Lightsaber and Cane.
• 1st version - Lightsaber and Cane on Right of Yoda
• 2nd version - Lightsaber on Right and Cane on left of Yoda.
Stopped by my local Texas Target today and found The Last Jedi "Teal Wave 2" on the pegs, which includes the new 3.75" Yoda and Obi-Wan figures. I also found this wave at Walmart back on September 12th, so if your looking for these be sure to check your local stores.Add a comment

I received a couple of The Black Series 6" 51: Finn (First Order Disguise) figures today from Amazon and noticed that the head looks a bit different from the ones I bought on Force Friday II at Toys R us.
The figure I bought form Toys R Us has a earlier date stamp and it looks like Hasbro painted the flesh tone on this head, while the later date stamp looks to have the flesh tone color mixed into the plastic.
• 1st version - Painted flesh tone on Head.
• 2nd version - Flesh tone color mixed in head plastic.
If you recall this variant happen on The Black Series 6" 01: Finn (Jakku) as well.Add a comment

If your having problems finding the Toys R Us Exclusive Poe's Boosted X-Wing & Figure at your local stores, you can now preorder it at ToysRus.com for $49.99 each with a ship date of 10/27.
Kind of odd the expected ship date is over a month away since local stores have been receiving these already for the past few weeks, which we reported finding back on September 9th.Add a comment
