So this is the one exclusive GameStop under ordered. So, did they already discontinue this guy? I have not heard anything on mine yet.

Been hearing reports of people seeing them in stores... Hopefully thats a good sign that they haven't been but I'm certainly no expert.

My local Gamestop has been getting a bunch of exclusives lately. I imagine like most figures they're just massively delayed and are still taking time to hit store shelves proper.

So today I visited another Gamestop in a town nearby to see - just out of curiosity - if they have the Umbra ARC in stock. No Umbra Operative, but a Night Brother was on the pegs, which I'm not interested in, especially not for 43€. Holy cow! That's deluxe pricing on a regular figure. I don't understand Gamestop's pricing on these Gaming Greats figures - the ARC was much less and I paid 43€ for a Cal Kestis a few months ago which is "okay" since it comes with a plethora of accessories.

I keep hoping this will go back in stock. But I assume it's over and done with now. I missed it and the ebay prices are crazy.

I was able to order one when he was first offered. Been waiting for him to ship. Amazing that this is the one figure they under ordered.

I was stupid to be honest. I didn't pre-order it because the local gamestop had been getting the exclusives with plenty of extras to go around. I assumed it would be the same with this one. But they haven't showed up here yet. I'm holding out hope, they may yet trickle out here.

I did exactly the same.

Hang in there y’all. Every single gaming greats figure has become readily available at some point, even the elusive 1st purge trooper. The shipping debacle has things coming out more incrementally than ever and I know it’s tough to watch everyone else get a figure you preordered on day 1.

He is just hitting Canada now. I picked him up in store last week and that store had quite a few, like almost 10 of him. However, in Canada, the price for this guy is ridiculously high though. That's why I originally cancelled my pre-order after thinking about it.

But in the end, ended up getting it since they had him in store.

Yeah stores around me (Niagara) take a while to get the GG stuff in but then you can't move for it. I still preorder but I'd be confident of picking up the exclusives in store by checking 3 or 4 local GS stores.

a lot of people at celebration were picking these up, fearing that their pre order would be cancelled. and from what people were paying for these, I was surprised.

I saw they had started going in and out of stock since yesterday. Oof, on that $2 inflation premium. If GS still has stock and it goes on sale for Pro Days on Friday I wouldn't mind picking up a couple more.

Also, for anyone wondering, the direct link in the OP is still working.

I just received a shipping notice for mine. Glad to see others are getting the notices too, I suspect physical goods for a lot of companies are just held up at ports.

Yeah, I’ve gotten all my Gaming Greats on sale. I just check gamestop.com frequently and eventually one of their sales lines up with them being in stock again.
