Does anyone know if the original Captain Rex (not the Walmart Bad Batch one) is still scheduled to release? It was originally set for November, I believe.

I have one on preorder with BBTS and they are saying it will be here in December, however that could change to January, February, etc. until it shows up.

Yes it's supposed to, but in the current environment we can not say with 100% certainty he will ship. Hasbro asked for the pre-order to be pulled down because they were not going to be able to meet retailer order volume.

Were those part of the initial 400 cases you talked about while back?

That loud WHOOSH-CLANG was the sound of me clenching over possibly not getting Rex.

That's crazy, I wonder just how much the order volume could possibly have been? The preorder was only up for a few days of I remember correctly, while other re-releases like Gree and Wolffe went months without issue. Wonder if this is a covid related production issue, or just insane demand? I have a Rex already, but I was hoping to get a spare or two. I have one at BBTS and Dorkside, so we'll see what happens I guess.

How about the mandalorian storm trooper? Is there reason to think it may never ship?

I'm posting this here because it's my Star Wars pre orders I'm dealing with on Wal-Mart.com

I have 2 figures pre ordered on Wal-Mart.com

I recently had to cancel my credit card. The vary card I made these pre orders with. I got my new card, and there is NO WAY I can find to change my card number next to my pre orders. I called Wal-Mart and chatted, and they said there is nothing that can be done lol. Has anyone dealt with this before? Can you change your card for existing pre orders?

I obviously changed/updated my card in my account. But that didn't change anything for my existing pre orders.

As far as my experiences with Wal-Mart go in the US and Canada, they can't change the card tied to the order.

It's ridiculous, I know.

Ok. Thanks for replying. Thats kind of what I figured after talking with multiple Wal-Mart people. But I didn't know if I just got the dumbest or laziest team members. Or if this was what everyone had to put up with.

Knowing you went through the same tells me a lot. I loved it, because they all kept telling me "Just cancel your pre order, and re order our exclusive figures!

And I'm like, "I can't! Your exclusives sell out in 11 seconds and are never in stock again!!"

Billion-dollar company, but they cant change a credit card. meanwhile BBTS has it so you can update your payment method, then with the click of a button update ALL your current pre orders with your new info instantly.

I love BBTS........I hate Wal-Mart

For anyone still looking for the Walmart exclusive Imperial Crosshair, he is available at BBTS (albeit with a markup)...

He's still in stock at Walmart.com, so really no reason to pay a markup.

Good to know! I figured he was hard to find based on everyone's pre-order experience...
