Well I predicted today for Hondo reveal because w/in 24 hrs prior to the official Hasbro reveals of k2, Wolffe and imwe, Amazon updated my 2/24 preorders w/ a ETA for delivery and last night, I got emsil from them w/ updated eta for Hondo. Fives still says ETA TBD. But I am likely going to cancel Fives once the arc trooper 3 pk is orderable. And for previous 3, Amazon also updated w/ pics. But didn't w/ Hondo.

I honestly don't need a reveal for Hondo considering we already saw him with the GE Falcon!
What i do need is for him to finally be listed on Hasbro Pulse to order. lol

True, but the "reveal" launches the pulse preorders.

What is this "On shelf later this Fall" you refer to? Are you saying there is a new distribution system that actually puts VTC on the shelves at stores? Brilliant! This is going to catch on and change the Brick and Mortar business completely!!!!

Oh, sorry for the sarcasm! Or am I?

That cardback is stellar. Really hope I can secure a pre-order in a few hours.

Solid release into the line. Figure and card back, to echo other’s sentiments, look good. Can’t wait for this wave to hit!

What about the holster that is pictured in front of his left leg, but ends up on the side of the right leg on the toy ?

Was just pulse and he's sold out there as well. So I nervously placed an order at Amazon.

interesting, on their main page, he's "ghosted" as if sold out, but says pre-orderable on his actual page. 2min ago

wm may not activated it yet. them or amazon was later in day for last preorder batch
Thanks, I had to run and errand for the family at pre-order time, yes I would have been sued for divorce if I had sad, "Can I do that later?". Got the other items I needed on HasbroPulse, yet had to go to Amazon for this. Good thing I'm an "opener" since I can guarantee the card or bubble will be damaged with Amazon.

$14.99 yikes. Probably a MSRP preview of a year from now..

Amazon for $12.99 remains available. Close your eyes and cross your fingers on card condition!
I avoid BBTS (along with EE and their awful website) at all costs.

It's either Amazon or Dorkside for me.
I understand. The only reason I brought up BBTS is because I thought somebody here might want this figure in "collector grade" condition. 😅

But yeah... Their means of pricing stuff is why I am starting to like DST when it comes to this line. 😅

I get why some of you might not like BBTS. Their pricing may be hard to figure out. But I will say that BBTS has one slight edge over the other sites. You can choose which carrier (USPS, UPS, FedEx) you want them to use to ship your figures.

FYI, I don't work for BBTS but I just wanted to point that out.

I like BBTS just fine, in fact i order from them quite a bit. Though most when they have a good sale because they are high priced. I suspect that's due to them not ordering the same volume as Walmart or Target, so they probably don't get as good of a discount.

Not to mention they also have overhead/employees to pay with no other "high mark up" merchandise like furniture or clothing to offset those expenses that Walmart, Target etc. do.

So in an age whee you can't always find an item in the store yourself, some people want to know they can count on someone else to pick out a "collector" quality item for them. I'll admit that it's not 100% effective but nothing ever is.
