nice! Going to have to hit some Targets after work. Crossing fingers they arent all cleaned out by then!
He is up on Target right now with a 5/28 shipping date, if you weren't able to find him.
Thanks man! Sold out, but all good, I have one secured already online. Just really hoping to find a nice mint copy of this particular figure!

I couldn't find anything in my two Targets. One store stocked more Droids Boba and GameStop had a little Anakin.

Yakface is saying Obi-Wan is going up for pre-order on Wednesday.

Walmart says they're shipping my deluxe Ahsoka, Stormtrooper w/ E-WEB, and Incinerator Trooper packs by next Wednesday too.

Target sez Droids Artoo and Boba are shipping now, I should have mine by Thursday the 26th! Thank the maker they used UPS for this shipment, if it was FedEx again I would be waiting until next month for them to arrive.

With most of the lines I collect, I gleefully rip the figures out of the package and immediately toss the box or blister card into the recycling, and TVC is not one of the few exceptions (for NECA Ultimates, G.I. Joe Classified and BeastBox, I keep the whole shebang, for Retro Legends both 1/12 and 1/18, once I open them I will cut the blister off of the cardbacks and keep them for future display purposes). From time to time I consider how cool the TVC cardbacks look, and wonder if I should keep them, but I didn't start saving the cardbacks from my first figures, so I'm not gonna start now.

But these Droids cards! Oh man. They are pretty. I'm gonna have a hard time opening them at all, they look so good on card.

My Droids figures are staying on card. I don't have other figures in that style, so if they're loose, they aren't fitting anywhere.

I bough an extra Boba to open but the droids will stay carded. Speaking of Boba, I wish Hasbro held off on RotJ Boba until after introducing the new hips. The old hips on Droids Boba and the 501st are rather disappointing after opening Fennec, Ahsoka, and DW Mando.
The week was kind of busy for 3.75". Droids, a new wave of VTC, and I also picked up the Ahsoka reissue at Gamestop. I almost never preorder reissues, but sometimes I get tempted when I come across them in store.

What figures are Mellow and Laguna again? Walmart notified me that these preorders have a new date. I don't remember what these figures are, let alone when their original date was.

Mellow is the Incinerator Trooper & Grogu deluxe set w/flame effect
Laguna is the Nevarro Cantina Stormtrooper set w/E-web cannon

I think these were supposed to be released with the Ahsoka & Grogu deluxe set. Which should be shipping now.

Same here on the latter two. Incinerator and Nevarro Stormtrooper pushed to 7/22. I guess these are the same as the previous coded orders? I don't know what's what anymore.

I'm definitely happy that the two troops are the ones who got delayed. I'm excited to get Ahsoka, she looks great.
