Re: New Star Wars Black Figures Featuring DJ & Captain Rex Released @ EB Games

Thought I would repost this since it's important regarding case distribution at EB Games. This wave hasn't been seen anywhere else yet in Canada and I am still on the hunt for a Clone Captain Rex for that new head with the face printing technology.

I learned something new about how EB Games does their Hasbro figure distribution. They don't send solid cases to stores recently, they divide up cases and send different figures to each store.

I was at my EB Games on Monday when their shipment arrived since they told me the Black Series figures were on the manifest, so I made sure to be there. As they opened the box in front of me, I saw so many figures just tossed in and not even any packing materials keeping them from shuffling around.

So they ended up only getting Rey, DJ and Lando from this new wave, not even the repacks of pegwarmers like Poe and such. It was quite eye opening, meaning that a store may never actually get a full new wave. They said they likely will get more but I left empty handed with no Captain Rex and scooped up Rey and DJ. The other EB in town hasn't received any new Black Series today and none on the upcoming manifests, so I'll keep an eye on that store to score a Captain Rex for now.

This same odd case distribution seems to be the case with Marvel Legends as well, they got the new Black Panther wave that same day and all they got were a bunch of Black Panthers, none of the others.

Some pics!

I never had a chance to display the HasCon exclusive Captain Rex so now is a good time with the new wave. The new face printing technology is amazing, Rey looks fantastic!!!
