My HTS.com order shipped today.
What I ordered wasn't so important as the fact that the order wasn't cancelled, and I used the Fall20 promo code. (Saleucami Clones, Henry Jones Sr.)
for my general mills joke - i shoulda put -'they cancelled my order (because the foil markings were incorrect) and then they raised the price!' Make no mistake about it - HTS killed the orders, solely so they could increase the price. They were just gauging interest. You got your answer - didn't you Hasbro?? thanx a lot.
Yeah me! I random off-the-cuff visit to TRU in Woodland Hills tonight won me a Tatooine Homestead, a new B-Wing with new pilot, and a Galactic Heroes Rancor set. No figures that I need, but my Hasbro Toy Shop Order came yesterday with the last few (Scuba Trooper, etc) that I've been needing.
So aside from the three boxes tonight being really BIG, it was a good day.
Still missing some parts from a couple Build-a-Droid droids, but otherwise, I think I'm just about caught up.
For those of you that collect Disney SW merchandise, Disneyland is no longer offering the one hour shopper's passes, unfortunately. However, World of Disney in Downtown Disney carries items like the Star Tours figures so you're not entirely out of luck.
You guys are gonna get mad, but I found all of Mattel DCU 6" at Target Culver City today, and wasn't able to stash or buy any for you guys. I was with my grandma, she was getting impatient, so I looked over the wave quick and bought Deathstroke.
Same store had a Clone Wars Super Battle Droid, bought that.
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.
Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.
The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

I'm selling off my prequel vehicles (most of them). If there's something you are missing, send me a PM and I'll sell it for retail.
