I've always wanted to kitbash some height and upper leg articulation to IG, but I just can't seem to ever start the project.Of course I'll still get him, but after seeing all the little details they missed, I can't help but feel a little disappointed. New hands and the little knee covers would've gone a long way.
Yeah you are mistaken he's most definitely got the new fingers.I don't have a link handy, but I'm sure in the latest character poster for IG-11 it looks like he's got the standard 'clippy' hands and not the 'fingers' we've seen in other images... I could be very well mistaken, but if not, I wonder what the story is there....
Thanks for the heads up! Is the coupon automatic or is there a code or something?For anyone who, like me, was on the fence about getting this figure, there's a coupon for being a My Best Buy rewards club member for 25% off a toy; the coupon can be used from November 1st until sometime in mid-November. Knocked him down to $14.99 pre-tax, and I got free shipping via the membership. Store pickup was also an option. In case that sways anyone else on picking this up now.
I noticed this morning that the four closest Best Buys started out with six. I was going to wait until opening and buy it in person, but within a couple hours every store was already down to 1 or 2 so I hurried and ordered for in-store pickup. I'm assuming that's what many people are doing so there might not be any to actually make it to the sales floor, ymmv though.Had the day off today and went by Best Buy and nothing. They had a spot for this guy but that was it.
All the ones I've seen have been in that section with the other SW product. Although at one store I did see three behind the customer service counter though I assumed they were pulled for order pick-up.Does anyone know if these are in a different area than the collectibles at Best Buy? I went to mine yesterday and didn't see any, but checked the website today and it said I could pick one up in an hour.
I would just ask someone in that case. Best Buy employees normally swarm me when I’m in store anyway.Does anyone know if these are in a different area than the collectibles at Best Buy?

I hope you are wrong too. I picked up one last week at Best Buy. Haven't opened it yet but glad I got one. Every hero always has a droid. They got away from that a little in TCW but overall still I think he will stick around for some cool fighting scenes and comedy. All these other characters seem serious. I'm guessing the droid will bring the comedy relief.I have this theory that IG-11 dies early in the Mandalorian, and that’s part of why Hasbro went lazy on him. Notice how Cara becomes his sidekick instead of IG, and we see her with him exclusively once he has the fuller Beskar armor.
Hope I’m wrong, of course.
Well, he is played by Taika Waititi who voiced Korg in the Thor/Marvel movies.Every hero always has a droid.
