How fast will these sell out online?
I'll make an attempt to order one tomorrow.
And then I'll be in line at my local store with other collectors trying to score one off the shelf!

I know Boba's popularity is a whole different beast compared to the Stormtrooper, but with 1 per order on Boba, it pre-sold out in minutes, if that.

This will be no different.

With the Proto Fett even with the one per order it sold out fast
At the time Fett went up they only had a limitation of one per order, and you could place as many separate orders as possible. I was able to place two separate orders before they sold out. With the newer system, it is only one per order, per account, per day. It's much more limiting now.

They have realled learned how to milk you all: now with multiple weapon color variations. One was cool, but a whole line of this type thing? You all keep buying this stuff, the TVC and Black Series will remain 80% Expressions (repaints, Patrick; they are called repaints)

I have to say, these will quickly lose their appeal when they're pumped out as novelty exclusives. I can see it happening a couple times, but now going for another so quickly after Boba, makes them feel more lackluster. I also don't think the figure looks so great - Boba looks far superior in my opinion, best of the three. For the trooper, I really think the selling point is the cardback, more than the figure itself - I honestly wish they'd give it a rest, I don't want to see all the armored Kenner sculpts in rainbow colors, when they can think up alternate exclusives with a bit more creativity...

Put in a pre-order for two that went through. Now it looks like the preorders are done. Tried to get another in, but it was too late.

Well. I guess I ended up with one. Not sure why my second order was cancelled. I guess I needed to try 2 at a time. I hope the one I get doesnt come mangled.

Last night, I heard about this going on sale today. I logged in to Target 3 minutes before the time I was told, and refreshed until about 5 minutes after. Nothing came up so I thought I heard wrong. Then I came here and saw the posts, so thank you, got 2 on order! Was able to have time to add another item too, to get free shipping.

Stormie showed up late on the website. he lasted longer than Fett, but that's understandable. Let's all pray all goes well from here on out.

Also surprised the limit was 2, not like Boba and 1.

Glad I could help many of you with that link.

For some reason, I don't like this one as much as Fett...maybe because I like white Stormtroopers? I do think the multi colored weapons though.

I went in for just 1 of these. Nice to see them stick around a bit longer than a miniute.

* I was super excited about the proto Vader and it sold out in my cart.
* I was somewhat into the proto Fett at first, and it also sold out in my cart while checking out.
* I am only a little interested in this Stormtrooper and it was super easy to get.

I think my lack of excitment for this Stormtrooper comes from the look of the color break-up. There's just too much of a single color in the head-torso area due to it being sculpted together.

You're limited to only one order per day/per item/per account regardless of whether you ordered one or two.

I ended up getting only 2. There were a flurry of emails and wasn't sure if there was one confirmed order so I did a few. Kudos to Target for the limit and for not posting the link early so the bots could gobble them all up.

Ordered 1 at first since I was in a hurry. Afterwards I saw that I might have been able to order 2 so I ordered another one. That order got cancelled right away. So I guess its one order per account even If you only order 1. Wish I would have noticed that I could order 2 at the beginning.
