I feel him about this starting to feel like a job lol. My target says May still, but Hasbro saying June. A seller on ebay from japan says hes expecting it on june 6th. Let the ish storm begin
Do you have a link to that seller in Japan? Just wondering what he charges for these figures.

The 3 pack I saw is 234.95 plus 10 ship. That was for assorted 3pack. I'm now seeing several single bludd figures for around 175. Still not worth it

Robotkingdom put up Major Bludd overnight(sometime after midnight EST), and looks to have sold out of singles of Bludd, but have this set of Firefly/Viper/Bludd that says it starts shipping Monday.

Not too bad* if you need all 3.

















*Compared to ebay, sadly.

Not that I don't agree with you about the price being not bad.....but it's pretty sad that paying double retail for figures that should be available in stores is somehow not bad.

Double and a half, with shipping, even.

Don't get me wrong, I am hopeful that Bludd will be easier to get, but the average going rate on ebay for Viper is about $90-$100, and Firefly is between $50-$60, so if you did need all three(the later two seemingly long gone from retail), you're saving money at this point

I'm not sure about that, Bludd should be more like Firefly than Viper. You should be able to get Bludd alone for mid 40s when its actually in stock.

So if they're all three low end of the current average, it would be $90+$45+$45=$180, and this listing was(it sold out now) for $130.


Also, confirmation from Hobbybase HK that they are shipping to them in assorted cases of 2 of each. Interesting.

So each store is only going to get two Major Bludd?

We already know that solid cases of Asteroid(MB) have been received in the US, so there will be some solids, not sure yet whether they will also receive these assorted cases or it's just a Hasbro Far East thing.

I think that's for a single, and maybe they only have 3 singles available. Here is the listing for the case of 3 that is sold out.

Ah, that’s assuring. That’d be a good scenario. Solids of Bludd now and refreshers in the summer

I'm not so sure we'll see assorted cases.
Didn't series 1 have assorted cases ship to TRU Canada? I vaguely remember thinking those cases might also reach Target.

Id be fine with assorted cases of 2 Bludd, 2 Viper and 2 Firefly if Target got like 9 cases per store and limited it to one of each figure per customer.

Something like 18 per store and hard limits would make this not appealing to scalpers in the least, similar to when NECA flooded Krang onto the market and every Target got like 18 Rogue and Gambit.

All these figures still sold quickly, but it wasn’t “gone in 30 seconds after opening” quickly.
