I second that buy what you want, as long as it's legal of course. :? :lol:

Hi folks,

Not sure if anyone is collecting the TLJ line but Home Bargains near Edinburgh was freshly stocked with single and twin pack 3.75" figures - priced the same as their Rogue One stock. :)

Hoping the SOLO stuff will show up soon - have seen almost zero from that line at retail.

Got a few days off at last so will hopefully have a hunt and see what I can find. Must admit, Solo figures in general seem to be really thin on the ground, I kind of get the feeling the stock is there to be put out but not done so until TLJ and rogue one figures have gone and other stock is at a minimal level.

I was lucky to get a Mimban trooper that looked suspicious hiding right at the back of the others in my local entertainer, sadly someone is cherry picking and sticking them onto ebay so I have missed out on the others, maybe ill be able to complete the solo run at some point.

I'm with you on the Solo figures, they just don't seem to be anywhere but I'm sure they will arrive at some point. It does make you wonder how they put these things out but I guess the bigger shops are just waiting for deep discounts on them to get them in stock.

The latest wave of these figures look pretty amazing to me and are some of the best ones release from this new era. It's good to see that the effort is still being made with this type of product but it's a shame that they're so hard to find....well at the right price anyway.

Nothing found today, but added a fourth 6inch ERG. I don't know why but I cant seem to leave those behind, should always be in pairs but thats just my excuse :lol:

Not a huge fan of 5POA but the Solo figures do look a lot nicer than the other lines, fresh clean card backs without unnecessary crap in it. The Sculpts are rather nice too. The stock we get in the Entertainer is all overstock from the EU,US and Canada, the cases that come in never have the short fill figures. At least I was able to get three of the 6inch Solo figures cheaply so not so bad, ill get the rest online.

I have been very pleased with thier service so far, I’ve been pre ordering the odd VC figures from them.
Always arrived soon after the figure is launched and well packaged.
I hope that you have the same experience.

to be honest at that price it isn't too much of a worry but looking forward to these - just searching their site and see there is a Moff Tarkin figure under the retro banned - escape from death star game?
