It's incredible that these are now arriving in the U.S. whereas the previous four GG figures (Nightbrother, Jet Trooper, Boss, Senate Guard) are still M.I.A. here, but have turned up overseas.Shipping records show that cases of GameStop Exclusive 6” Black Series Umbra Operative ARC Trooper (Gaming Greats) have arrived via the Port of Houston, TX. Expected release date is still April 1.
Exactly. They send those emails out when the expected release date nears. But as the past year or two have shown us, release dates are subject to drastic changeI'll believe it when it actually shifts to processing as it's still listed as an April 1st release. The "Don't miss out," emails have been a notoriously poor indicator of an item's imminent shipping status, especially this past year.
Exactly. Perfect example, back at the end of November during their big Black Friday sale, I ordered 2 “in stock” figures. ML retro white Vision and Scarlet Witch. I got a million of those “getting ready” emails. In the middle of January I got Vision. Scarlet Witch showed up this week. Moral of the story is ignore any email that doesn’t say your order has shipped.I won't believe anything until I get a shipping notice. Those "now in US warehouses" reports or "get your card ready, shipping soon" emails don't really mean anything.
I cant tell you how much I adore this Clone design! Fell in love with it the moment I saw it in BF2.
Yup, this is the last of my "buy them all" approach.I ended up cancelling mine. The prices in Canada are insane and I have to start being more selective.
I saw some images and it looks like its got the "new" standard setup with there being an unpainted sculpted head under the helmet and glued on. Yeah, a bit disappointing considering that TVC version has a removable helmet...Anyone know if the helemt is removable? Would be nice to see a standard Clone head underneath since Echo, on which this figure is based, looks like any run-of-the-mill Clone Trooper.
I believe all the Clone Troopers have the same heads underneath. I haven't removed a Stormtrooper one, but I think that one was different.
Well, I can understand if this person I know only ordered one...But he ordered 2-3 of them!! If anything, they should process single orders first to satisfy more customers quicker with the limited amount. I would have been happy to get one now, the other on backorder for later.It just means they're getting a small shipment in at a time, and fulfilling whatever orders get picked. It's never first in, first out.
