    I have caught the Prototype Vader few times on Target.com. I got about 4 of him total with different color schemes. The figure grew on me. Two are going to some friends of mine. I did get one loose Vader from a guy from over seas and one from a guy on Rebelscum. I have not seen the figure in stores as of yet.

    Hopefully when it comes to distribution it’ll be more like Vandor Chewbacca and less like the retro figures.

    So that other listing on Amazon was just the same way. Out of stock. "Temporarily," but we know what that means. I'm not getting Palpatine. He was only the most important part of my Sith collection, not a big deal...

    I ordered stuff on a "temporarily out of stock item" and I've had about a 70% success rate in getting them. I do have to ask why you waiting for so long to try and order him? Not judging or anything, just curious as I usually order something the first minute it goes up.

    What?! Okay, now I get it. That's absurd! I'm in southern California so it may be a distribution thing, but I doubt it. Damn, wish there was something I could do to help.

    Damn. They put Boba plastic bubble face down first and shoved butt load of air bags on top. :oops: 

    The card is kinda warped (but not bent anywhere) and the plastic bubble is smashed around the sides (see around the plastic bubble edges)... I had to pop it back into place and there's permanent creases on the sides. :confused: 

    I guess I'm happy just to have one. o_O 

    Think they will send me a replacement? :lol

    Speaking of Hasbro's packaging practices, I just got my Boba Fett in. Needless to say it kinda scared me right off the bat when I removed the air bubble packaging and the Sith Trooper first only to see this:

    [​IMG]

    After I carefully removed it, it seems the way Hasbro packaged it, saved the card from damage...by accident :lol

    Or not. There is a very slight crease on the lower left of the front of the card but either way, nothing on the rest of the card and the bubble tray is just fine on it :)

    Just need one of those protector cases for this guy :D

    Ya know, there was something that just dawned on me. Not sure why I didn't notice this before, but....

    [​IMG]

    It would seem Boba Fett has his armor in the right places, to protect the most important part of his body. Luckily too since he seems to have taken a hit (or two) there :lol  The SDCC one seems to have a more pronounced "battle damage" effect :lol

    That black series mandalorian that was bid for $179000 yesterday I think was a joke. I believe he just reposted it.

    So about black series figures from the mandalorian series. So far, we got the mandalorian himself, a jawa and a rumored Cara. Well I heard from yakface that there is a 4th mandalorian figure codename Bobby. There is now a rumor that Bobby is...

    Apparently Comedian Bill Burr's character from the Mandalorian is also getting a toy. Don't know what scale though.

    If Billy's getting a toy, then I won't be surprised if we also get figures of Carl Weathers, Gus Frig, and Werner Herzog as well.

    I don’t know if its true but one of my buddies is claiming that the Commander Obi-Wan’s head can be swapped with the EPI 3 version. If its true, I will skip the issue if it ever comes out.

    Congrats man! Yeah the original release was hard to find in my part of the world...initially until 6 mths later, where it shelf-warmed hard.

    Oh yeah, i just opened mine and i really like the “neutral” Jedi face on Anakin.

    The light saber handle on this release feels gummier too.

    Tbh i got the SHF version but the expression on the Jedi head wasn’t to my liking.
