I ordered Deluxe RotJ Boba Fett off of Amazon around the beginning of May and got it today. Much sooner than was estimated. This is a definite improvement to the old ESB one in almost every way imaginable. So much more fun to pose and play with. I do already have a small tear on the chest overlay, though. I don't know if it came like that or not. Guess I'll have to exercise caution there.

Got my Amazon Greedo today too, I think he’s my favorite of the “vintage homage” crew.

I got Endor Leia today. I am underwhelmed. I want to display her without the poncho. But her neck is thinner at the bottom, and her belt needs to be on or her torso looks terrible. And shes got the new knees, but I knew that going in. At least her face looks nice. But all in all, she's meh. I should've got the Hoth anniversary one. That one looks like it may have been better.

Yeah, Luke and Leia without their ponchos don't quite work as well as hoped for me, either. Hoth Leia's definitely a good 'un, though. Really annoyed I missed Bespin escape Leia, because that's supposed to be very good, too.

I see the face on that one isn't the best but the figure overall looks nice. I don't think they did the face printing on it. But if they rerelease it in the future I will definitely pick it up. It just going for too much right now aftermarket.

This one seems pretty reasonably priced:

It definitely does have face printing on it, and it looks great in person.. at least in my opinion anyway!

Hmm. I did a quick check on amazon and that one was expensive so I figured they all may be. I'll have to think about it though. Since I already spent money on this and the Assajj and Bo Katan already lol. The $9 shipping pretty much kills it though.

I'm so happy the Gaming Greats Cal Kestis deluxe figure is shipping. I can't wait to get this figure. I'm as excited for the BD-1 toy that comes with it as I am Cal lol. I really do hope they get to characters like The Second Sister, Jaro Tapal, Merrin, Cera Junda, and Taron Malicos in the Gaming Greats (or basic) Black Series line.

I love Fallen Order. The more figures the better.

They have already done a Second Sister in the Black Series. And having a Jaro Tapal would be great as he's a good looking character design, but only plays a very small role in the game. And don't forget Cal's mate Prauf, the Abednedo from the start of the game!

Does the Hasbro team know what sells better, between movie figures, animated series figures, and video game figures (oh, and "Mandalorian" figures too, I suppose)? Or do they just measure success in full case sales?

If it turned out that the Fallen Order figures were more demanded than, say, "Rebels" figures, would they even know about it?

Im pretty sure they can track individual sales since all the figures have their own unique sku's.

Probabaly why we havent seen any sequel trilogy figures in a bit - the only one I can remember in recent history was that dark side Rey figure. Im assuming sales data is what has led to the influx of Gaming greats, clone wars, and mandalorian figures lately.

Hah! What makes you think I've seen an iflux of anything at any store? I share your disappointment when I come across the pitiful Star Wars section in the action figure aile...

I'm talking about the character selections on current waves, which Im assuming is based on sales data - which I'm assuming is why you arent seeing unpopular stuff like sequel trilogy characters being solicited.

Wouldn't Gaming Greats, Clone Wars, and Mandalorian also be more recent media than the Sequels? Not saying you're wrong, but they also seem to just roll with the current tide too, unless it's an anniversary of some sort.
