So I just received shipping from Dorkside on the new wave. Much earlier than I expected it.

Even if I complain about the price and Deluxe status, I do think the figure itself looks great. Heck, as far as quality goes, I'd the Black Series is better than ever! Every figure I buy feels so much nicer than than the ones I was getting only two or three years ago. The articulation is more functional and the sculpting is better across the board. They've made so many nice improvements lately. If that comes at a higher cost, then I guess it is what it is.

At the least, I can take solace in the fact that this new Boba isn't an exclusive. I'd much rather it be $31 than some kind of retail exclusive. I say that since Hasbro making so many of their Clone Wars figures exclusive to Walmart and Target killed my enthusiasm for the line for most of this year. I haven't been able to find any of the Walmart exclusives since Jedi Luke and I've never seen ANY of the Target exclusive stuff.

Sweet! I got the DS notice too. Well I have an extra $350+ open up… DS is fast to ship too.

I’m not sure which one I’m most interested in seeing first. Fennec is awesome! Crap I just realized I got part one of Typhon episode coming in plastic form! Well I don’t have an e-Web gun. But mortar troop lots of new troops. I’ll have to find a paldron for the commander.

Well this was a nice flip of the script.

Thwipp!

I believe DS said they had a small batch coming in this week. I have no idea what the cutoff time was for this shipment, but I'm sure being one of the first retailers to put these up for preorder they sold hundreds if not thousands of cases in the first day.

I think they said they were only expecting assorted cases early?

If so, I'm likely waiting until March/April since I only ordered half the case...

I bought the Cantina set, so I skipped Ponda and Evazan. Sucks I might have to wait 3-4 months longer in that case. :(

I wonder if DST is shipping full cases now or partials? I didn’t order the whole case, only four I believe.

But the figure barely looks like Ming Na. It’s a very poor likeness.

What happened to the Rancor thread? Did Hasbro erase all traces of their failure from the internet?

Robo locked the thread because it was way off topic and we couldn’t play nice.

Wow! I can't believe some of you already have the Fennec/Boba/Ponda Wave shipping out. That is crazy. I didn't order when DS first put them up. I Pre Ordered the entire set when they went up again yesterday.

Not just locked, totally nuked.
It must have got real crazy up in here. :shock:
Anyway, I only ordered Fennec and I haven't gotten any notification of her being charged.
