great pick ups guys, I went to my local tru today and they had a lot of everything apart from luke, one left which is what I was after
I'm going to wait on the rest, just not that into this line for some reason, they'll be at clearance eventually, happy to wait a while
IF I WOKE UP TOMMOROW WITH MY HEAD SEWN TO THE CARPET I WOULDN'T BE MORE SURPRISED THAN I AM NOW

Sensible decision :D

I'm hunting for yoda and obi wan :lol:

Three I really want is Luke/yoda/obi

Quality of figures is really good - card is average at best. One big downer for me is no title of the film! Think they messed up big time by not putting title in.

Thanks not sure how I missed it. I am guessing the Yoda and Obi Wan are the second wave of teal figures.

Also if anyone is collecting the vehicles I spotted the A Wing and casino planet police fighter in Debenhams. Have not seen them anywhere else.

No sign of either of these figures in my area in the US yesterday. It took me forever to even find a picture of them but it's interesting that they're making some flashback figures again for TLJ. I guess this will be the way they will go from now on with each film release and I wonder what else will be released in wave 2, should be interesting (even though I'm not picking them up now........well I did end up with 6 of them yesterday so it looks like I've not completely given up just yet :lol: ).

Some great TLJ pick up's you guys 8)

Got agree the packaging on the 3.75" figures leaves much to be desired....the artwork is very bland compared to TFA and R1 and the size and quality of the cardbacks are shit imo but still its new Starwars so has to be taken for what it is....

Anyway i've picked up a few more pieces...

Picked a few up from TRU in York (i've money off vouchers atm for TRU so no brainer really 8) )....picked up Luke from Asda Living at Crown Point in Leeds...there was only the one Luke on the pegs and just after i'd bought mine i were walking away when I noticed a guy had a big pile of the other figures waiting in the cue...I showed him the Luke and told him you need this one as well....he looked and said I'd got the last one and then we had a bit of banter about it...obviously he needed one as well and when I walked away he said he hated me for nabbing it :lol: (in a joking manner may I add :lol: )

Great set and did you manage to find any of these in shops or were they all bought online? I haven't seen one of these figures yet in a shop over here in the US (admittedly I haven't looked that hard).

Thrawn is amazing ....

Great pick up guys --- lots of nice toys here.

Ian - wave 2 is sold out in US --- got mine from friend in Fremont (US) who shipped them over to me as he had two sets :D
Their is a Hasbro email going out to retailers saying wont be sending anymore of these out to retailers in UK -- they are few around in US @ stores
but most have gone. R5 D5 is at some Gamestop stores and Vadar (brown eyes variant) is plenty in stock, but red eye version is sold out.

Has anyone here pre-ordered them from www.forbiddenplanet.com or www.staractionfigures.com?
Most have been waiting months now - with new news of yet if they will get them or not.

I have a stormtrooper on order from FP since July! My order is saying sept.....
I read on JTA that they heard,that large European outlets will get their orders completed.But no more of these 40th figures are being made available? But the solid case Han & R2 for Xmas time are still up for pre-order? Very confusing!!
I will be very disappointed if I miss my stormtrooper. My fault I missed the original pre-order,but the scalpers prices are frightening.

Another target of mine is the Black series captain Rex exclusive.
FB will be selling at MCM comicon in October & online shortly after!
Anybody like to guess a price point? :shock:
Saw a E-bay USA pre-order up for over 150 dollars this morning, madness... Think it's available this month in USA at hascon?
