    Phasma didn't go up on HLJ yet, correct?

    I wonder if there will be more preorders/orders for the First Order Stormtrooper. I'm tempted to ditch the Black Series altogether and go all in with the SHF stuff.

    Not to my knowledge. I checked a few times after 3 am last night while I was waiting for AmiAmi to finish loading the confirmation for my preorder.

    It seems like there are almost always opportunities where the pre-order or order opens up near or after release. I've been eyeing the pages everyday but I think I may just save some money and only go with the Bandai kit for the regular trooper this time. But you know if I see orders open up for the SHF, I'll probably crumble and get it too, lol.

    I know that the SHF stuff is usually slightly smaller than the figures in the Black Series, but how is the scaling between Bandai's model kits and the SH Figurart line?

    Bandai is a bit bigger, I think pretty much same as BS. Bandai Vader is a hair taller than BS I think. Bandai really is the best way to go if you don't mind building them, imo. Best detail, pretty much equal or better articulation, best quality and cheapest.

    Edit: Some comparison pics from thefwoosh

    I'm sure I don't need to tell you which one is which;) 

    I'm going with a mixed collection of all three...I'll only get BS figures for characters I really want but can't get from the other two lines. They all look great together.

    I'll be waiting for Phasma on HLJ too. I also expect her to be limited to 1 per customer like many of the other SHF SW figures. I'm not too worried. Worse comes to worst, there's always Amazon.co.jp and I can have my dad-in-law in Japan send her along to me. :D

    Question: amiami says cancellations not accepted. So what happens if I just don't send the Paypal payment?

    I'm ordering from both there and HLJ with the idea that I'd just pay whoever gets them in first(or at all as the case may be).

    Thank you much, secured her and also put down tentative pre orders for the new Kinnikuman figures.

    They ban you. Not sure how many times it takes.

    The way the site words it, it sounds like all it takes is once and they just cut you off.

    You can cancel at AmiAmi. Just send them a polite email asking them if you can and explain the situation. They'll probably tell you to not do it again. I've cancelled a few times with them over the years. Never been banned.

    I got the Thunder Effects in today, with SHF THor. Pretty disappointed in the effects - its not that easy to integrate them into a figure, and they're pointy as fuck

    Thor's cool, except for the face sculpt and the shoulders can't use the full range of movement due to the armor
