Yakface reader Charlie G. writes in with store report after finding the Han Solo Elite Series figure this morning in Lutz, FL:
Just wanted to say I was at a Disney Store Outlet this morning and purchased the Han Solo you guys recently mentioned. The store also had about 12 of the First Order Squad Leaders figures in stock but I passed on it. The outlet bizarrely only received two Han Solo figures, one of which I purchased. Happy Hunting!
