Boba Fett (Tython), Fennec Shand, and Ponda Baba arrived today from Dorkside.
Did you just order those three?

I ordered Boba Fett from then as soon as they went up, and I haven't gotten a shipment email yet.

Boo.

I ordered these three on 11/24, after I heard they had some cases already on the way to them.

I have heard that order fulfillment at Dorkside and other places is not necessarily in the same order as pre-orders are placed. It is much more random from what I've heard. I've definitely been in the situation where I preordered immediately and seemed to be the last to get things.

Final delivery for 21 just dropped in

Cal Kestis Dlx via local online fleamarket app. wasn't that high on my list, but due the Bogling and the Holocron the asked price was to good to resist 🤪🤪
The figure might end up as a Rebel/Resistance techican somewher in the background of my shelves😉

The other day I came across Aurra Sing and Q9-0 at Walmart. I hadn't seen anything decent at any retail store in a long time. I was originally going to pass because I'm trying to cut down on 6" figures. But, Clone Wars is something I like to focus on for collecting and Q9-0 is just too cool of a figure. 😁

Finally cracked open my new wave of figures from Dorkside, and they look amazing. Fortunately nothing’s wrong looking about Bill Burr’s face, can’t say the same about Dr. Evazan though! Bib Fortuna is a brick à la Moloch, and I think he’s a bit sick too—a little too blue in the face!

Interestingly, Dorkside sent the wave totally anonymized. No mention of the company on the return label, no shipping tape with their logos everywhere. I wonder if they’ve heard from customers falling victim to porch pirates.

I can't understand how Dorkside gets cases before Entertainment Earth. Did they make a higher bid on the limited available inventory from the shipping crates? LOL

I can’t speak into specifics at all but anecdotally this is the second time I’ve gotten a full case assortment from them before it’s been widely available. The owner of Dorkside said that it’s basically luck of the draw from Hasbro on the Discord chat with Star Wars Collecting though. I highly doubt they are bidding for first service from Hasbro when margins aren’t huge to begin with.

Yeah it’s all luck. I’ve gotten full cases from both EE and Dorkside before they showed up elsewhere. What I have noticed is they both tend to pump out full cases before they both start shipping individual figures

Geez mate, opener or not you still want the box. That is some effing lazy BS.

Oh, for Sure I wanted the box. Even as an out of box collector, the mural boxes have a use due to the picture on the side, which can be used in many types of collection displays. Sadly the box was pretty much just held together by the postage sticker :mad:

I would contact Amazon and let them know you're very unsatisfied. They may offer a partial refund

I left a negative review on how they are posting this figure out. Problem is, this figure was a nightmare to actually get, so really don't want the hassle and risk of trying for a replacement.
