After the outcry from the public, about the "Pay to Win" advantage in BattleFront II, EA has temporally suspended microtransactions in the game.
Thank you to everyone in our community for being the passionate fans that you are. Our goal has always been to create the best possible game for all of you – devoted Star Wars fans and game players alike. We’ve also had an ongoing commitment to constantly listen, tune and evolve the experience as it grows. You’ve seen this with both the major adjustments, and polish, we have made over the past several weeks.
But as we approach the worldwide launch, it's clear that many of you feel there are still challenges in the design. We’ve heard the concerns about potentially giving players unfair advantages. And we’ve heard that this is overshadowing an otherwise great game. This was never our intention. Sorry we didn’t get this right.
We hear you loud and clear, so we’re turning off all in-game purchases. We will now spend more time listening, adjusting, balancing and tuning. This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be earned through gameplay. The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we’ve made changes to the game. We’ll share more details as we work through this.
We have created a game that is built on your input, and it will continue to evolve and grow. Star Wars Battlefront II is three times the size of the previous game, bringing to life a brand new Star Wars story, space battles, epic new multiplayer experiences across all three Star Wars eras, with more free content to come. We want you to enjoy it, so please keep your thoughts coming. And we will keep you updated on our progress.Add a comment
Just discovered that there is a card and insert variation on The Last Jedi 3.75-Inch Jyn Erso (Jedha) figure.
• 1st version (Date Stamp 72411) Card PN00012200, Insert PN 00012206
• 2nd version (Date Stamp 72541) Card PN00020032, Insert PN 00020034
I didn't see any changes on the front of the card itself, but 10 bonus points to anyone that wants to scan through the card back and find the difference and post the changes lol.Add a comment

Have not found to many errors lately, so thought I would share this one since we are on the Fenn Rau subject. Here is a production error, in were his entire right wing is missing from his Jet Pack. Got to love quality control!Add a comment
Some of our readers have inquired about a paint variation on the Rogue One 3.75-Inch Fenn Rau figure, so here are the details. Early versions didnt have a black line painted on his belt buckle, while later versions did. Hasbro made the change to make this Rebels figure look a bit more screen accurate.
• 1st release: (Date Stamp 63561) No Black line in belt.
• 2nd release: (Date Stamp 72421) Black line in belt.
I took a comparison photo and added white arrows showing the difference because if you blink you might miss it.Add a comment
According to Disney, their Exclusive Elite Series Rose & BB-8 Die Cast Figures has been delayed from November 14th until November 21st. It looks like they knew the figure was going to be delay since they updated their November Releases Calendar a while back.
Some stores may receive them a bit earlier then the 21st and I was told they could sell them once received, since they were originally advertised for a November 14th release date.Add a comment
Arriving - Amazon Exclusive Black Series 6" Elite Praetorian Guard & First Order Stormtrooper with Gear
Orders for Amazon's Exclusive Black Series 6" Elite Praetorian Guard (with Heavy Blade) and also the First Order Stormtrooper with Gear have begun arriving to those that have ordered. Just received my shipment today. The items come already packed in individual mailer boxes from Hasbro, and Amazon shipped these in a oversized box with air pillows.

Just noticed that Hasbro has made changes to the card and bubble on the 3.75-Inch Sergeant Jyn Erso (Imperial Ground Crew Disguise). On the newer card Hasbro has removed the "Sergeant" title from her name. Also inner bubble was changed around to display some of her accessories differently.
• 1st version. Figure Name "Sergeant Jyn Erso". Card PN00007342
• 2nd version. Figure Name "Jyn Erso". Card PN00009190
I just recently obtained the second version from online retailer Entertainment Earth, which just received a bunch of the Rogue One 3.75-Inch Wave 3 figures from Hasbro.Add a comment
Stopped by my local Texas Toys R Us tonight (Saturday) and they received their Exclusive Black Series 6" Rey (Jedi Training) figure on todays truck. Also our readers have been sending in reports of finding these from the East to West Coast.
Price is $34.99 each, but they have a promo of BOGO 40% Off on Star Wars action figures, but not sure if the promo will carry over to this week or not.
These are 6 per case. My local store received 36 figures and out of curiosity I asked the employee to check other local stores in the area and they all received between 24 - 36 per store.

Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Johnson will create a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he is also set to write and direct, with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce.
As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud. In shepherding this new trilogy, which is separate from the episodic Skywalker saga, Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.

My local Texas Walmart stores put up new price tags today for The Black Series 6" figures. They have reduced the price from $18.84 to $16.82. Hopefully this will clear out some of the peg warmers and make room for newer waves (fingers crossed). I am assuming the price reduction will be Nationwide.Add a comment
If your still on the hunt for The Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary R2-D2 and Han Solo be sure to check your local ThinkGeek Stores. My local Texas Store just received 6 cases (3 cases of each) of R2-D2 and Han Solo. Price was $22.99 each.
Also R2-D2 is in stock at GameStop.com if you want to have it shipped to you, but looks like Han is sold out.Add a comment
