    A year ago I would have never guessed we'd get Breaker and Barbecue before we got a classic Storm Shadow.

    I wonder what the hold up was. The sticker book showed art for everyone in wave 1 + Baroness and Storm Shadow. Storm Shadow is the only one missing from the line. It would benefit from the pinless joints like on Zartan.

    I wonder if the Storm Shadow we get will even look like that art now that this much time has passed? Especially with the line steering toward more classic interpretations of these characters.

    I hate preordering from Target since they charge you every week until release date.

    I imagine it would. All the art from the sticker book matches the figures that have been released.

    What an Extensive Enterprise

    I'm surprised these (and Bludd) are still up on Target. Shit, Bludd's still on Pulse.

    Is the long dark night finally over?

    I get it, but you can't do all the fan favorites right away. Nobody would stick around later for just Breaker and Barbecue

    Every week or so you will see a charge hold on your preorder that disappears and then reappears on your bank account.

    This doesn't happen however if you have a debit or credit version of their Red Card.

    Would you believe they have been up to preorder for over 3 hours now and havent sold out? It's truly amazing. Such great news for Classified fans.

    Be truly amazing if they dont cancel preorders and actually fulfill all those orders. Because as we read in the ongoing target sightings thread, CS confirmed their preorders dont mean jack $#it.

    Can't believe I just got both of these 3 hours later. I got off early, but was busy doing other things checked my email saw the drop at pulse, saw what it was and saw they were sold out there. I just knew Target.com would be out as well, but to my surprise I secured both figures.

    Hats off to Hasbro and Target for making things better. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come.

    I could care less about Barbecue, but this figure looks great. Pre-ordered. A sign of a great collector line when I'll order any character they put out.
