In the gi joe thread people have been reporting figures arriving from pulse without ever getting marked as shipped. It's possible that it's in transit currently and will show up without notice.

Cool. Thanks Norm and Slaker :) Hopefully I either get a notice soon like you Norm, or the figure just shows up like Slaker said. As long as Hasbro seems to be on it, it makes me feel better

Probably because they’d have had to retool something in order for it to work. Either the neck peg or the entire head. They don’t transfer easily on their own unfortunately.
Is it really cheaper to just mould a new head, though? I don't know either way, I'm just curious. Or is this new head somehow the old one but with better sculpting/printing?
The Archive Obi Wan is the exact same figure as the RotS figure. The head is just painted better then the old one.

Ah ok. Disappointed, but that makes sense.

So, after asking about her yesterday, my Jyn Erso figure shipped from Pulse today. I also noticed that my Nightbrother Warrior figure has been charged from GameStop. it doesn't seem to have shipped yet, but hopefully soon.

Star Wars Black 6 inch General Discussion

Don’t know if some have already received the Disney Parks droid depot four/five pack or not. Ha. Five pack…Mine is due Saturday. Can’t wait to see the pit droid. If I love it, i will be inclined to hunt down two more. I would like the three “stooges” droids.

Thwipp!

I received an email from GameStop this morning about my upcoming Boba Fett order from Book of Boba Fett that is supposed to be released Jan 31st. I’m surprised that I may see this while I am still waiting for the latest Black Series Wave to be shipped.

I would be shocked it Gamestop delivers on that Boba. I have several preorders that are now beyond the original release date. They either pushed back the date or just list it as "awaiting product availability."

Agreed - no way that Boba will be delivered this soon. I've got one preordered there too and got that email as well, but I've got this, the Halo 20th anniversary set, and Perceptor/Coronation Starscream "awaiting product availability."

Heh, I saw "Book of Boba Fett" and got excited they'd announced the version from the show.

I guess technically. They did reuse the footage of him wearing that from the credit scene on Mandalorian.

I typically only order in stock items from GameStop so it will be interesting to see if they actually ship in another week and half. I was all excited and now you have me like crap no Black Series for another few months now, lol.

It's been a long time since dorkside started shipping the Boba-Fennec Shand case and I haven't heard anything from them about mine. Their site won't let me email them so I guess I'm SOL for getting this much desired wave . has everyone else got it and moved on?

Nope, still waiting for this too. I’ve sorta resigned myself to the fact I’ll have to wait.
