Navigating thru HP My Orders menu is just plain ridiculous. HP just charged my CC and I thought I would take a quick look to see if I could figure out which figures are shipping . Gave up

Started a simple spreadsheet so I could see at a glance what I ordered when. Makes it easy to locate specific items (when I need to cancel something ;)) and beats clicking into every order. I have a couple of charges pending today, too, but they are for Marvel Legends stuff that they warned me would be arriving earlier than expected.

I'll add one more thing since there is always shots being made at OT collectors. You had better be glad that OT fans are still around because in my opinion once the OT fans are gone it will all go.
It'll be interesting to see if it works out that way. We've had couple generations of kids now whose first and most influential experience of SW would have been the PT and TCW. Time will tell if these grow up to be genuine fans of SW as a whole or just single-minded Ahsoka stans. 🤔

Ah, but here's the difference: the introduction of Boba Fett lead to a great enrichment of SW lore, further expanding on the underworld elements of the Galaxy Far, Far Away that had been hinted at in EP IV, and ushering in the Mandalorians as a faction, who would go on to become a tremendously important element of the Expanded Universe and ultimately save the Star Wars brand for Disney more or less single-handedly. Ahsoka, by contrast, is just some Jedi dropout that Dave Filloni won't allow to die, awkwardly retro-fitted into an existing storyline years after it had actually been concluded. 😉
