    Ok, I have a question...(I am full of them lately :D ) Someone posted on rebelscum's forum boards that he found 3 new Unleashed figures. I thought the Unleashed were only going to be the litle figure sets? Has anyone heard of them going back to the larger version? :confused:

    From what I've gathered, it's up in the air. These three< I believe, are Han in Stormtrooper armor, a Shocktrooper and a new Episode III Chewie.

    These had been planned and were pushed back when the smaller ones started coming out. There are rumors that since the smaller line seems to warming the pegs, they might go back to the bigger ones permanently.

    This from YodaNews regarding the 7" Unleashed


    Unleashed Update, Part III

    Back on December 22, we reported that the last wave of 7" Unleashed figures would be exclusive to Wal-Mart. We confirmed this information on February 17, and again reported that Wal-Mart will be the only place to find the final three in this very popular series. In the last 24 hours, we received over two dozen e-mails asking if this has changed, and now slated to be a Target exclusive. After checking again, we were told today that rumors of these being a Target exclusive are false, they are still slated for Wal-Mart, and we will be seeing a wide-release return of the line in early 2007. Thanks to all who wrote it about this!



    That is all.

    I picked up the new CLone Wars Gunship over the weekend. I've already got a couple of the Gunships, but the paint deco on this one was just too cool to pass up.

    It's painted like the one from the Clone Wars Cartoon.

    The Toys R Us in Fairview Heights had 3 or 4 of them left.

    For all the EU fans, Starwarsshop.com has the Kir Kanos + mystery figure two-pack up for pre-order. Also up at EE.

    He's the character from the Crimson Empire comic series. Looks like a jazzed up Royal guard with removable helmet!!

    Sideshow pushed back Obi till August. I just received my Anakin, he is awesome. Next week, my General Grevious arrives. I can't wait, it really damaged my wallet though! Seeing this statue at C3, is what got me into these in the first place.

    Apparently, the new 501st Stormtrooper figure that is a SDCC exclusive will be offered at the hasbrotoyshop website in late July.(July 20th -23rd, I believe)

    If you haven't seen this figure, it looks great and comes with a "Vader's Fist" banner the figure can carry.

    I think I'm gonna get a couple of these!!

    I've heard not so good things about hasbrotoyshop.com mostly on the "hot" stuff. Site says its in but it isn't, various other things like that. I can imagine ordering this through them will be a pain.

    I've never bought anything through them, so I can't say.

    I'll give it a try and keep my fingers crossed.

    *Vent* I tried ordering the 501st Trooper from hasbrotoyshop.com, everything seemed to go through OK, but found out today, they put me on backorder. It took them that long to figure that out? Geez. *end vent*

    Other than that, finally did find Scorch and get my shadow stormie.

    I have been told that those have sold out there usually within about an hour every time they make them available.

    I was able to order mine the first day and it arrived about a week ago. Cool figure! I've read reports all over the place of the site being jammed from people trying to order and according to that, I guess mine went pretty smooth.

    I've also seen that there are two versions of this action figure. One has the SDCC logo on the back and the other does not. Hasbro probably did that just to make the variation hunters a little more crazy :)

    The 2 versions of the fig I've seen are different on the little name sticker thing on the front. One says something about it being SDCC exclusive the other doesn't have anything.

    It says the backorder is scheduled to ship now on 8/16. Holding out hope, but not holding my breath.....lol

    You're correct, mine also says SDCC Exclusive on the front. I've seen several people that got their's through Hasbrotoyshop that are the SDCC ones, however. Must have been a running change.

    Good Luck SteelLepp!

    Now I feel like a whiner

    Got my 501st Stormtrooper from hasbrotoyshop. Got the "SDCC Exclusive" version. Looks like a very cool figure. Hanging on the wall next to my 501st Legion Trooper from the Ep3 Saga Heros & Villans or Greatest Battles, I forget.
