    Speaking of China, I wonder if the US toy market will be affected by Trump's tariffs.

    Thank you!!! I was able to grab one this morning. I can't believe she's still in stock.

    I think it still comes down to the fact that it's not a sexy (exciting) outfit for her. If they do one w/ her in any of her gowns, they'll fly.

    I'm still happy though, I don't have that outfit for her in 12" scale.

    It would be hard to consider her an "action" figure in the gowns. Squeeze her knees together like the to other FODs and she does what exactly?

    Yeah well I know. I'm hoping if we get a round 2 they can do one w/ her ala Endor Leia w/ her white outfit and one of her AOTC gowns to go with it.

    Just a bit of news- someone on Twitter who pre-ordered the FOD Ahsoka from EE posted and said that they have been charged for the pre-order and she has shipped!!

    The website does not show her as in stock, just still as a pre-order but I took a chance and ordered.

    I haven't taken them out of package - I might wait and get a second set to do that - but here are Kylo and Rey also. Kylo looks like a young Professor Snape...I might need a third set to have him AS Snape.

    I got the Ahsoka I pre-ordered from EE. She arrived last week so it took a little over a month from the date of order.

    I guess I'm going to need to preorder her from there, she's not showing up anywhere else.

    Thank you! She along w/ a second Padme is on order.

    So Anakin and his Angel over on FB posted to an ebay auction for this - it says that it was cancelled. I've never seen ANYTHING on it. The only things I've seen that were actually cancelled were the cheap Rey and Leia and some individual sidekicks and Sabine w/ her bike. I've NEVER heard of this. The person who posted it is in LA, I'm hoping maybe she got them in Asia? I found that there was a listing back when the other items were initially announced for it HERE on YakFace back in 12/21/17. I'm not sure how someone would get their hands on this if it wasn't actually released somewhere.

    Edit - ok so Entertainment Earth shows it was cancelled, so somehow it was lumped in w/ the other cancellations. Maybe, MAYBE we might see it at San Diego. *Fingers Crossed* - I'd start harassing Hasbro that we want them.

    Here's how you can reach out to Hasbro

    And Tweet them HERE

    Well this is interesting - Hasbro's going to have an exclusive Chewie w/ Porgs giftset at SDCC for FOD Line. Info HERE.

    Nothing different about Chewie, I'll stick with just the cheaper version. Those Porgs aren't worth that price hike.

    Considering I think they were originally planning to sell them for about $10 - yeah they're hiking extra moola on for seemingly no reason. I might still get it though, I need/want another Chewie and they'll be rare.

    I got my Ahsoka a while back, I didn't photograph her because her box came all smashed. I have her in my Clone Wars display - she looks great w/ my Sideshow General Anakin figure.
