I've got two Bobas out for delivery today, one to pilot my Slave 1, and another for my Jabba's Palace. Very happy to get him in hand, the preorder was like 7 months ago. The only evidence I have seen of this wave was a single Greef on the pegs at Target, and he came home with me.

I really need that updated TVC Boba Fett, stat! I still have the older Fett stinking up the background of my Jabba's Palace.

I have him pre-ordered at Amazon and Pulse, but they're both taking their time.

That diorama is amazing and I feel like my Jabba setup sucks now. If you have any other dioramas, I would love to see some pictures.
Thanks man, but I'm sure your setup is great. I've been working on this thing for a loooooong time though. There are a lot of parts to this setup. I'll post more soon!

That Jabba's palace dio is incredible man, I would love to see how you made it. I imagine it was quite the task!

Received Fett and what was supposed to be Grogu from Amazon, but they messed up and sent Leia instead. Looked at that figure before I sent it back for the correct one and I can't say I'm impressed, I ended up canceling the one I had on preorder from Pulse.

For May the 4th, the Hasbro Star Wars team's big reveal for the VC was another 4 re-release/re-tool figures. Death Star Droid (with the same horrible arm articulation first released in 2008 and used ever since), Endor Luke Skywalker (this one actually looks pretty nice), Tusken Raider (meh), and the Republic Trooper (fan vote).

It's really hard to believe Hasbro views this line as anything else other than an afterthought.

I still don't understand why all those fan vote figures aren't being released as a repack wave.

They really should be, would be a hot seller for Hasbro. I didnt even bother voting becuase it was just too hard to choose, but Im happy the trooper won since i never scored that guy!


Also, in case anyones after them: Echo and Offworld Jawa are up on Pulse now

For those who the preordered CW Ahsoka and Maul wave, the Jawa and Echo are the other two in that assortment.

I just went to BBTS to add those two, but luckily checked my existing POs first.....

And thanks for this, ordered them both.

Once again, wouldn't it be great if Hasbro just revealed these waves all at once instead of &@#$! around? I'm not ordering anything sight unseen, it just causes me to have to fiddle around with combining orders.

EDIT---I didn't think my language was salty enough for autocorrect to catch it.

Cool. Any other VC figures announced? I missed it.
