    Laserwave lives in Canada, our distribution for Black Series stuff seems to be really crap, moreso than anything else. Half the Blue Box and Blue Carded waves never hit en-mass from what I personally saw in my province. Others claim to have seen loads, I personally either have had really piss poor luck, or they're talking out of their arse.

    I would gladly pre-order everything if it was even stocked consistently, but even Amazon Canada has been rather stingy with their availability options of Star Wars merch, from what little I've seen. (I haven't searched too often because I am sick of seeing 100$ or more asking prices from secondary sellers.)

    And Force Friday is a totally terrible deal because the scalpers will be out in force, I daresay online purchases might be a wiser option for getting stuff at this juncture.

    Trooper do warm, so those new ones probably will to after a given period. Troop building just doesn't have the same appeal with the 6 inch line as it does with he traditional line.

    K2SO is my fave droid design now that I got the black series! I hope he is cool in the movie

    Ah, that's his name! Does have a oddly appealing design.

    Might just pick this guy up. He's got a design that's quirky, but in a good way. But I'll probably get his Figuarts version rather than the BS version.

    K-2SO has an oddly cute, yet terrifying design. I really dig it. I'll have to keep an eye out for his figure.
    Has the Sabine/Revan/whoever else wave gotten a release date yet? I vaguely remember hearing something, but all my Googling has turned up nothing...

    It's a good candidate for the Elite series. Gotta see how the character turns out before I can decide but I'll probably get the either the BS or Elite and definitely the Bandai kit versions.

    I was going to get 2 Death Troopers, but maybe I should ask my Friend for one Death Trooper and one K20S.

    Yea, I saw a ton of Stormtroopers kicking around once the hype died off. Dorkside already confirmed retailers will be getting solid case packs of troopers on Fwoosh:

    "All of wave one figures are actually being offered in solid packs so we're going to be selling full case packs of Death Troopers as well."

    Sweet! Got the Hot Wheels hero starship 4-pack for $6 at my local Ross.

    The only I don't have already is the Ghost, but I can certainly justify paying six bucks for a ghost when there's three other ships included.

    I'm gonna buy a few of those Scarif Troopers. I don't know why, but I absolutely love them and their asethetic, to me it looks like a leftover design from the original trilogy, nothing fancy or flashy here.

    Looks like they actually did improve the hips for the new Stormtrooper

    I will likely end up getting all of these.

    I will likely pick up the new Stormtrooper. The rest of them I will decide after I see the film. I do like the look of the brown one that looks like an ARF trooper. I was going to make a blind purchase having not seen the film it would be that one.

    Saw the unmasked BS Kylo yesterday at Walmart. No other new figures, just old Finn and Rey w/ lightsaber. They also were carrying BS lightsabers again, only had Vader though.
