    I felt they were the stand outs.

    The holiday ones are just silly. I do like all of the littles that come with them. The Stormies w/ the ugly holiday sweater markings on their armor are funny.

    At least it's a creative way to repack figures :p

    Yeah, as silly as they are, at least they’re creative. I’m not going to buy any for myself, but I might pick one up as a Christmas gift for a friend who also collects.

    I jjst want a pack of TBS holiday porgs. I dont need the troopera, though my eldest son wants the Sith trooper because the gun is painted like a Nerf gun.

    LOL That's funny about the gun. I would love the silly porgs also.

    I'm so happy we're getting a Jar-Jar. The poor guy gets so much grief. It'll be nice seeing a gorgeous version of him being made.

    I really like that Hasbro doubled down on Jar Jar and made him one of the deluxe figures. It looks like a lot of detail has been put into the figure. Including the shield, spear and energy ball was a great idea. Hasbro have really stepped up and shone a positive light on an unfairly maligned character.

    For anyone who pre-ordered the Heroes of Endor set, a lot of people are speculating many of them will ship later this week because they’re already being charged for it. I was given March as an estimated shipping date, but was charged immediately, so based on how previous Hasbro Pulse orders have gone for people, it sounds like a lot of them will ship at some point this week! [face_party]

    I don't think so, I rarely order from HasbroPulse because they DO charge upfront and ship later.

    Ah, interesting. I could be mistaken then! I’ve never ordered from Hasbro Pulse before, but I’m subscribed to some communities on Reddit that I’ve seen discussing the Heroes of Endor set and the general consensus has been that if they charged you already, the set will more than likely be shipping soon. I could be entirely wrong about that, though, so don’t quote me on it. ;) But if mine does ship, I’ll post in here so you guys know!

    My experience has been closer to what Trev described - there's preorders I placed months ago, they only charged me recently a few days before I received the orders

    Maybe they changed things, or maybe I just buy on too many sites. I did see people are getting their 3 blue clonetrooper sets

    Interesting! I don’t mind waiting until March for the Heroes of Endor set, but if it comes sooner, that would be awesome! There really are way too many sites, though, it’s hard to keep track of them all. [face_laugh] For the longest time, I always just went with Amazon because I have Prime, but now there’s retailer exclusives and I’ve had luck with GameStop, so I’ve been giving them my business a bit more, too. It’s hard to keep track because of all of the figures I have ordered right now!

    I just saw a post that someone received their Wompa and their ROTJ figures set - so I guess they are shipping!

    They have new figures coming for S2. I had a Cara and had to return her because I'd overspent. I figured it's fine I'll find her again...WRONG.

    I think I ordered Cara. Still don't have a Mando. I keep hesitating on ordering from Dork Side.

    I ordered Jar Jar and Dark Rey. Shouldn't Ahsoka be shipping soon?

    I’m in the same boat. I pre-ordered Beskar Mando MONTHS ago from Big Bad Toy Store, but based on what I’m hearing from other people, they just keep pushing their pre-orders back because the pandemic has screwed with their inventory and how soon they get stuff in stock. I keep hoping I’ll find him out in the wild so I can cancel the pre-order, but I haven’t found ANYTHING yet.

    Yep! It’s weird cause I’ve found some of the wave, but not the mando. And they’re from places where I know the people, so I know he hasn’t shown up yet and been purchased lol.

    I just bought wave 27! I walked into my local toy store to start my work shift and they’d just arrived so I quickly bought them all!

    Cad Bane, Han, Luke and Leia (Endor), Rebel Trooper (Hoth), Clone Trooper, The Armorer, and Incinerator Trooper. All look great. I’ve been waiting for a Cad Bane in this line for so long, so it’s great to finally have one.

    New Zealand collectors: Check out your local Toyworld.

    My Pulsecon Exclusive Wompa showed up! Woot!

    Packaging is rad - it's all holographic and shiny!

    Does anyone know a way to get hold of the 4 Clone Wars S7 Black Series figures exclusive to Walmart from other countries in the world?

    I thought I’d never be able to get the Galaxy’s Edge ones here, but they’re actually coming soon, so there must be a way.

    @Jordan1Kenobi All 4 figures were up for pre-order on some UK sites when they were first announced, but they sold out very quickly. Ahsoka and the Mandalorian Super Commando sold out everywhere within a day or two. Ahsoka’s 332nd Clone Trooper and the Mandalorian Loyalist are mostly sold out, but I have seen them up for pre-order on Zavvi.com

    If they were released here, it’s only fair that NZ collectors get a chance to purchase them as well.
