    Just got a “In Stock Verifiication” email at 2:00 am from good ol’ Geoffery Giraffe… This guy is available for order online… again! Got one! Good luck guys.

  • Kelly Aldred

    Just received email from TRU.. Snow trooper back up for ordering on their website.. Email sent to me at 10pm.

  • Mike Avallone

    Well I just jumped on TRU.com and ordered myself 2 since they are back up for order. One to keep in the package and one to open. For those that weren’t able to get one jump on it quick.

    • Chris Lastovich

      Well this is new to me at least. I just tried ordering one online, it says only in-store pick up, no shipping as an option, but every store in my area gives me a message stating “sold out or not available at this location” so that’s cool… Back to store hunting I go!

      • Mike Avallone

        Well that’s weird because mine said no shipping, store pickup only and had them available. This was after me wasting my time and driving there Saturday and them having nothing. Now I’ll have to wait for the store pickup email and go there Friday. They definitely take the enjoyment out of collecting.

  • Mike Avallone

    I totally agree. It would teach theses scaling bastards a lessen an eventually they would stop. I’m not going to pay a scalper double or triple the price just because I want a figure.

  • Dave Strickland

    You would think at this point collectors would realize that if we ALL would stop buying from the scalpers and they ended up sitting on hundreds of dollars worth of figures that NO ONE bought, it would end the scalping. These leeches would end up having to dump these figures to avoid losing ALL their money. If no one bought them when they lowered the price to their cost, they would have to dump them for less than retail; you, me, and everyone else would get them at a discount and these scalpers would have to find another hobby to leech off of. Anyone who pays above retail for these items is an idiot, years down the road these items rarely even hold their retail value anyway.

    • Darth Eddie

      Buying a $20 figure from an eBay scalper for $80 is just dumb to begin with, but to each their own and it’s their money if they want to spend four times the retail price on something. I’m not insane and won’t pay that much for this figure and neither will a lot of other people, but scalpers know that some will and that’s what keeps their business thriving.

      • JsironStories

        Aye. Impatience is the scalper’s best friend. They’ll always have someone as a customer.

  • Mike Avallone

    Well as usual, I went to my ghetto TRU and nothing. All they had was 6″ Chewies and Finns. Oh well.

    • Darth Eddie

      Same at my TRU. Chewie and Finn and that’s it. They restocked last week but it was just more of Wave 1.

  • Bombadgungan

    Only 6″ Obi-Wans at my TRU! No TFA figures yet.

  • franksolo77

    The scalpers are circling all TRU’s like vultures for this exclusive.

    • Chris Lastovich

      I’m kind of hoping my Toys R Us doesn’t get these until Mon or Tues when I’m off work and can get there as the store opens.

      • franksolo77

        I hope your able to score at least one, good luck to you.

        • Chris Lastovich

          No luck. I’ve checked 5 Chicago area Toys R Us stores this morning… Downers Grove, Woodridge, Orland Park, Joliet, and Matteson, IL… 1 store had no idea what I was talking about, but the other 4 told me they all got 1 case each sometime last week, and they were sold out within the first few hours of the day. Two stores actually told me a “collector” came in and bought all 8 they had on the pegs… So there you go! My failed Snowtrooper mission. Now I get to wait a few months until the Ebay prices go down.

          • Mike

            If your talking chicagoland try Merrillville IN i grabbed one yesterday

          • Chris Lastovich

            Thanks for the info. My Toys R Us actually got their case in a few days ago, with silver sticker, which I’m happy about. They originally said they had already gotten them, then I walked in a week later and the same guy remembered me and said he had a case under the desk at customer service! Got to pick out my own!

      • Darth Eddie

        My store gets its trucks on Thursdays. I’m hoping the Snowtrooper Commanders get stocked by the end of the week, even if they’re kept behind the counter and limited to just one figure per customer.

  • Ray Marquart

    No silver toys r us sticker?

  • Jair Arqueros

    Confirmation from California they only received 5 and were sold out…nothing on their computers stating anywhere else from this morning.

    • Jair Arqueros

      And not all TRU just selected locations

  • Jair Arqueros

    Where?

  • gargan123 (Kerry Spencer)

    What is the TRU six digit item# on these?
