Should have. Did you nab some more Death Troopers, too? I saw them listed, but not sure if they were in stock.

I'm in the same situation with space. I need to buy another display unit, but I'm waiting until we figure out our office situation first. The wife decided to move it again and I don't want to take two displays worth of figures out and put them back in.

Grabbed Cassian and 2 Scariff Troopers on walmart.com Free shipping to store. Saves checking and checking and checking. All my stores are pretty full of 3 3/4 BS so it may be some time till enough sells through that they get out those guys.
Hasbro, I keep trying to give you my money. Why do you make it so hard?

The Cassian I got on eBay last weekend is amazing. Truly a wonderful figure. And as an added bonus his torso is soft, meaning the trusty boil n pop method will work for customs on his arms.

I have a few more of him coming now along with Scarif troopers... overpriced online but I really want them sooner rather than later.

:wink:

I'm thinking of making another generic rebel officer with Cassian as the base.

The one drawback is the Cassian neck peg is tiny.

Also per our FB page... Jodo received these today:

I also received my order from K&C Collectibles...

Cassians and Scarifs, and stuff bought from other places recently. This isn't everything that I've bought recently but it's a good chunk. I have 4 more TBS Cassians that I'm using for customs. I'm trying not to open all of this until Christmas Day after my kids are done with their presents.

The AT-ACT is mine, but the kids have been playing with it a ton... they love it. If I see one on clearane, I'll get another. It's a cool toy other than the price, and I had to fix the NERF feature on mine.

I definitely recommend the Shoretroooer to anyone looking for a good figure. Cass is excellent too! I'll probably pick up more Shoretroooers if I see them, maybe another Cassian as well.

I don't have a shelf for them or anything, but I just love the design of them.

I almost got the Scarif trooper today but it went out of stock as I was changing the pick up location to a St. Louis area one, instead of one near my parents.

That's awesome Jodo! Glad you could get 6 of those bad boys, they look awesome.

Hoping they hit my stores soon...And also hoping that the ERG shows up somewhere near me.

I have pretty much given up on finding or ordering this figure. Everytime Walmart has it its always out of stock. My area has nothing but the phasma wave. I am sure the Scariff Trooper wave is already cancelled knowing Walmart.

Nice!! You definitely won't be disappointed with them! A word of warning though, some of the joints are stiff...

Happy holidays to you as well!!!!
