    Right?! Each to their own, but this is the second consecutive year when multiple sites have listed SW items for easy online ordering (and well before midnight West Coast time).

    Yeah, and cheaper too. I picked up a K2SO and a Death Trooper from for $34 and change, then used my cashback on Amazon to pick up a second Death Trooper (because TRU had a limit of 1 per customer) for $17 and change. Cheaper than going to the store and far less aggravating. :)

    Placing an order on Amazon right now. No early morning madness for me this year.

    Grabbed K2SO and a Death Trooper, as well as the two least-expensive Lego sets. I might swing by TRU tomorrow and try to find that stormtrooper tank pilot, but I don't expect to find much.

    Well, that was easy. Walked into Walmart at, like, 11:45 and left around 12:15 with a Death Trooper and K2 (unfortunately they didn't have the 3.75" figures). There were only, like, 2 other people there.

    If only I could go back in time, I would tell last-year me to go there instead of Target :lol .

    Yeah, they are there now. When I asked originally there was nothing. God it's going to be a long day tomorrow as I've gotta work in the morning and I'm going to be up until 1amsomething to preorder Han.

    Just got the Darth Revan polybag at LEGO's online store. Any LEGO Star Wars purchase works, so I used a $4.99 Darth Maul keychain and shipping was free :lol 

    I'm gonna just give the keychain away probably, just look at it as $5 for the Darth Revan.

    Thanks to Haloid for the heads up in this thread earlier.

    Yeah I guess ordering online has spared me from a late night trip I wasn't wanting to make anyway. As for the Figuarts figures.....man...I hope they sell more later or the preorders don't run out.

    Yeah. Plus, with how prevalent episode 7 wave 1 figures were and still are, I doubt these will be difficult to find.

    I'd love to buy the figuarts versions of the troopers because they really do look awesome, but my money is currently tied up in other things. (The deep dark hole that is hot toys iron man/avengers figures lol)

    I waited in line at my local TRU for about 20 minutes...very orderly...let folks in 10 at a time...plenty of product it seemed...
    I grabbed a K-2SO...was the only 6" figure I wanted right away, but they had ample supply of everything else...
    Kinda fun.

    Got all the SHF stuff preordered. I'll keep an eye out online and scope some shops for BS but don't really care now.

    I should just order online, but I do enjoy the thrill of picking something up brand new. Three more hours to TRU opening, no Midnight Event here so should be plenty of stuff there, Sabine, and possibly Jyn, here I come.

    Got my Han preorder. I still think Hasbro's STs are superior than even the new ones because they have their holsters.

    Ditto. Going full in on SHF. Hasbro BS stuff, eh. I'll pick them up if and when I can. Not really a priority for me.

    Here's my Walmart haul.

    I passed on a few things (Ackbar). I'll wait for some sales. Not really interested in spending a lot on SW right now. I'm more interested in expanding my Marvel collection.

    Walked into a Walmart on my way to work this am and grabbed a Death Trooper. Last one at that Walmart. I reeeeeally hope I can score a TRU exclusive.
