I was curious if the Droids figures would be numbered, or if they were going to be like the WM Carbonized figures. Looks like they will be unnumbered. In-Hand pics courtesy of Alan Ngai Lun Li on FB.

I'm behind on this one, did they open it for orders or is it long since closed out ?
They were up for preorder for about a minute and 45 seconds. They're supposed to be available again, but I'm sure that will be another Target urban legend.

Not numbered.. Even more reason these won't be produced in high numbers...

I still can't believe folks are paying eBay scalpers $60usd+ for the promise of a target pre-order that will most likely be damaged anyway.

These were actually easily available if you were able to get on your phone the moment they went live. It was a feeding frenzy but I was able to get 2 fetts first then went back for r2 and 3po.

If you were working... take a moment to go "poop" next time 🤣

Just imagine that notion from an outside perspective... lying saying you have to poop to go buy toys in the bathroom stall at work. Lunacy to some, completely normal and accepted to us 😂
I flat out tell my department when preorders are going live, so they don’t schedule things with me that day at noon. In all honesty, it’s only about a 2 minute process (usually), so I just go for a short walk to the front and come back.

It might not be produced in high numbers in the first wave, but Target has shown over and over to have Hasbro make more of an exclusive and more may come.

Kind of surprised Target hasn't released these yet. Usually their exclusives like this are meant to be "dad' gifts to coincide with holiday sales, but Thanksgiving and Black Friday now have come and gone and nothing. I wonder what they're waiting for?
Like most I missed the preorder and am anxious as to when the actual release will be.

It would be nice to know a ballpark of when these guys might show up. The Bad Batch set was already delayed 2 months, but this one, and the other two droids figures, are a complete mystery.

Random check today and he was available. You have to be lightning quick. I was able to add him, but then he immediately went to Saved For Later when I hit checkout. Good to know he's coming back in stock though.

Did you pre order him when he was first up on the site in September or did you order him recently?
When it first went up. "Error processing payment" I paid via paypal from my credit. There should have been zero holdups on my end.

So what is the release date for this figure? For some reason I thought it was today and kept refreshing the page hoping it would show up. It says pre orders sold out check back on release date. Anybody know if it will be available again or am I just out of luck.....

Funny part was I was in a Target store when the Droids figures went live. I passed on 3PO but was able to get R2 and Fett. I ordered 3PO at a later date. I got him today. I would like to see a lot of the Droids figures get updated like these.

I would imagine they went to the money makers first because they don't have faith in any of the other characters. Vlix would be something. They will probably do a stupid multicolor prototype Vlix.

These were a missed opportunity for Disney and Hasbro. Why didnt they launch these alongside a blu-ray and Disney+ release of the complete series? Then Hasbro could have doubled production because new fans would have been turned on to the series and scooped up the figures too. A win for kids and the adult collectors. But no, why would they think of something like that, lol.

A Vlix should be a convention exclusive. In my opinion. It would be perfect.

I was primed and ready to buy the moment it went live and could not get one. I decided the regular retail version would have to suffice.
