Last week Gamestop.com had begun to process Preorders for their Exclusive The Black Series 6" Battlefront II Inferno Squadron Agent Figure and people were to expect tracking numbers this week, but reports are coming in that GameStop.com is reversing some processed orders to backordered status due to no stock.
My order was also processed last week and I was told its already being shipped and expect a tracking number today, but that did not happen.
I called customer service today to see if my order was shipped, but was told they had to change my order to Backordered, because they didn't have stock to fill my order. I then asked well why did you charge my Credit Card and process my order if you didn't have stock and they had no idea.
Anyways if your order was processed and it actually shipped with a tracking number let us know in the comments.Add a comment
Yesterday ToysRus.com listed the Forces of Destiny Platinum Edition Princess Leia Organa & R2 as a Exclusive, then some online retailers posted preorders for this item as well. So I reached out to our contact at Hasbro and asked if this was a Exclusive or a Non-Exclusive Product and got the following response
"Product will be available in late 2017/early 2018. They were revealed at HASCON, and are not exclusive."
So these are not Exclusive and was just a listing error on ToysRus.com which has since removed the "Only at Toys R Us" logo from the product. This should clear up any confusion.Add a comment
Well hopefully this is a sign of whats to come very soon. My local GameStop store has put up signage to advertise the upcoming release of their Exclusive Black Series 6" Guardians Of Evil 4-Pack (shared exclusive) and Supreme Leader Snoke (Throne Room) figure over the weekend.
They didn't receive any of the products though, so I asked the store manager to check their Texas Warehouse to see if any of these are in transit to the local stores around here.
He stated that Guardians Of Evil 4-Pack has already shipped to the district stores and they should receive them (if not already) within the week.
As for TBS 6" Supreme Leader Snoke (Throne Room), none are in the warehouse as of today, but things could change as the week goes by.
At the moment GameStop.com still has a release date of 10/2 for TBS 6" Supreme Leader Snoke (Throne Room), so hopefully we will see our preorders begin to get filled and we will see shipments to local stores very soon as well.Add a comment
Was just surfing ToysRus.com and noticed that they have just revealed their Exclusive Star Wars Forces of Destiny 11 inch Platinum Edition Princess Leia Organa and R2 Set tonight.
Price on this is $49.99 each with a estimated ship date of 12/06/2017. As of this post this set is not available, but it looks like ToysRus.com plans on taking preorders for this at some point in time, per what the product page is showing. Their mobile site says preorders available, but there is no button to click on to preorder. And their desktop site states "This pre-sell item has reached the maximum limit and cannot be added to the cart". So guess we will have to wait and see.
Remember you heard it hear first and please don't copy and paste our info without giving us credit. Thx
Update: This set has been listed at a couple of online retailers as well for preorder, so its unclear if its a shared Exclusive or if Toys R Us was mistaken in claiming it as a Exclusive. Will reach out and try and get a answer, but its Sunday so probably wont hear anything back till tomorrow or so.Add a comment
Gamestop has started to process preorders for their Exclusive The Black Series 6" Battlefront II Inferno Squadron Agent Figure, so be sure to check your orders and make sure your Credit Card info is still up to date.
Also at this moment they are no longer taking preorders and they are not listed as in stock yet on GameStop.com, but they have activated their "Check Store Availability" tool so you can check your local stores for stock.Add a comment

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
Forces of Destiny half-hour specials will air 10/1 and 10/29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (check your local listings) on the Disney Channel or you can watch it on the Disney Channel App. These Specials feature a total of eight never before seen installments.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
