Collectors who preordered the exclusive 6” Black Series Emperor Palpatine with Throne from Amazon have started receiving processing and shipping notifications for their orders. This set was originally slated for an October release but it looks to have been moved up.
Mattel has revealed 3 new fashion dolls inspired by the film’s original concept art, Star Wars X Barbie Collection. re-imagines Princess Leia Organa, R2-D2 and Darth Vader through a distinctive Barbie high-fashion filter. You can preorder them now via our Amazon Affiliate page through the links above ($100 each). Click on through for additional images.
Thanks to Dan V. for the heads up.
Amazon now has their exclusive Green Chrome POP! Boba Fett available for order.
Amazon has finally activated the product link for the upcoming TVC Darth Revan (VC150). There is no updated image and it is currently out of stock but you can still order it and maybe it will fill at some point or maybe orders will get cancelled. It’s a crap shoot anymore with Amazon.
I trust everyone had a relaxing Memorial Day Weekend break with family and friends. As I get caught up on my inbox of emails and social notifications, I’m seeing a ton of reports concerning delays and cancellation notices on orders from Walmart for Jabba’s Palace playset, cancellations of Amazon preorders for figures from Black Series wave 21 and TVC Skiffs, and finally, Target has changed the status of the Retro Collection DPCI to “discontinued” after only a couple of weeks of availability (if you saw them at all). I know it’s frustrating for today’s “gotta have it now” collector, but I urge you all to show restraint and NOT reward scalpers or fall victim to algorithmic pricing for any of these items as they will all be available eventually for retail price or less (at least in the U.S.). Reach out to friends and trusted acquaintances in the collector community to help fill those holes in your collection and in turn do the same for others.
Amazon is sending out cancellation notification to some of those who purchased through them. It reads as follows:
Due to a lack of availability, we will not be able to obtain the following item(s) from your order:
“Star Wars The Vintage Collection – Episode VI Return of The Jedi – Jabba’s Tatooine Skiff Collectible Vehicle”
We’ve canceled the item(s) and apologize for the inconvenience. We must also apologize for the length of time it has taken us to reach this conclusion.
If you are still interested in purchasing this item, it may be available from other sellers.
Thanks to sheevpalpatine for the alert.
