    Yesterday Morning a seller on E-Bay had 4 up for sale for only $59.99 each. I passed to wait for HTS, but they went fast. Cheapest seller yet with Rex on E-Bay. From some of the Vid’s a i saw, the only lines at Hascon were to buy the Exclusives.

    • LesDudis

      The only worse line was the line to get meet & greet vouchers! What a headache

  • CT-7567

    I’m actually going to try and get this one. I’m really regretting not going to HASCON. This looks like such a great 6″ figure, plus it’s one of my favorite SW characters.

    • David Lo-Pan

      Damnation! I need to change all my debit cards’ pin from 7567!

  • zx_spectrum_30

    Had an email from Forbidden Planet this morning that they will be selling this at MCM Comicon in London 27-29 October and in sfore/online after the event. Price to be released later!

    • Nick Dickens

      £25-29.99 I’m told.

      • zx_spectrum_30

        Deffo be at the top end of this as I think their normal 6″ price is now £26 or more. If it does come in at £30 or less would probably go in for one.

        • Nick Dickens

          Yes I thought as soon as I’d posted what the answer would be.

  • DarthCanabis

    Hopefully, if I’m lucky enough to get this ordered, it reaches me in good condition. I haven’t had a lot of luck with Hasbro Toy Shop.

    • Equinsu Ocha

      Same here. I got 2 of the SDCC black series landspeeders (one for me and one for a friend), and both were trashed.

      • DarthCanabis

        The SDCC 2017 Thrawn I ordered reached me in less than desirable condition. Part of what makes this an exclusive is the actual box it comes in. Hasbro, you really need to do a better job at packing. We collectors are spending a lot of money on these things and we expect them to reach us a good condition. Obviously things happen during transit but my real issue is the way our toys are packed. Do a better job Hasbro. I get boxes almost every month from BBTS, and my things always come in great condition.

  • Jaken Wraith

    Anyone else notice they have Poe’s new “Boosted” X-Wing listed with an MSRP of $12.99?

    • That’s the smaller “value” version, not the 3.75″ mainline “ForceLink” version

    • CT-7567

      I didn’t see it, but maybe it’s one of those cheaper versions they make. They did a TFA Falcon and an X-Wing and TIE Striker from RO. All for $12.99, I believe.

      • Jaken Wraith

        Yeah, forgot about them.

  • RumSleg

    $24.99 seems like a surprisingly not-bad price for an exclusive like this. Were they selling for $24.99 at HASCON? I was preparing myself for $30+.

    • CT-7567

      Did you consider going to HASCON? I was thinking it wasn’t worth the $60 admission to then pay $50 for two Rex figures. I just thought I’d wait for the regular retail release. Now I’m thinking that this is the only SW convention exclusive that’s been from this part of the country and it would’ve been nice to have the exclusive version. Plus the basic release might not have the larger guns. I’m hoping it might actually be easier to get on HTS because HASCON wasn’t as big a thing as SDCC. I heard they didn’t even sell them out. I guess it all depends on how many they made. I don’t usually go for autographs, but I actually wouldn’t mind having Stan Lee, Optimus Prime, Megatron and Mark Boudreaux’s signature on certain items in my collection. I’m just not sure what was allowed into the convention. I would like to have Boudreaux sign a Millennium Falcon, but that’s a big thing to bring to a con and carry around.

      • RumSleg

        I thought about it but was turned off by the price. $60 was too high to get in. I can justify going to Star Wars conventions and comic cons, but going to a Hasbro-specific toy convention felt like too much of a stretch.

        I met Mark Boudreaux at Celebration in Orlando this year. If I’d realized how easy it would be to meet him, I totally would have taken a Star Wars toy and gotten his autograph. I got Sansweet to autograph my old copy of “From Concept to Screen to Collectible”. That was cool.

    Rex and other HasCon exclusives were added to HasbroToyShop just a little while ago as well. Everyone can go ahead and bookmark the page!

  • Walter F.

    Holy Cow. Might have to make a online purchase for this. 😉

    • comicalUser

      Good luck.

      • comicalUser

        You’re gonna need it!

      • Walter F.

        No joke

  • Joseph

    Anybody know if this will be out for regular release at all?

    • TatooineSandworm

      It will be coming out as a regular release figure in the Spring of 2018, but with BETTER paint apps. May only come with his two hand guns though.

      • Joseph

        Oh ok. Thanks. Cool I’ll just wait then.

  • Ulek Calus

    Any fellow Canadians ordered from HTS recently? How much is the shipping and any other fees?

    • Subcoolin

      I haven’t ordered from them yet….lol I tried to get the 40th luke…

      • Ulek Calus

        Hopefully Rex won’t be as slippery.

        • Subcoolin

          I have ordered hot toys and for example…a death trooper was 229 usd and i paid a little over 300 shipped

          • Ulek Calus

            So if ordering from Hasbro is proportional to that it would work out to about $33 USD or $40 CAD I guess. Wouldn’t be too bad in that case, but for some reason I doubt it.

  • EPC-421

    I hope for future 6″ Clone Troopers they’ll reuse the retooled Rex arms, looks to have much more movement than the original and better bicep proportions!

  • James

    Hope to get 2x of these, love this one! more troopers!

  • Branflakes

    Is it true the general release red box version of rex will have the enhanced face sculpt? Or are people just assuming he will? I want this figure so bad but idk if I wanna buy him twice

    • Jesus’s Best Friend Floyd

      I’m from the future and the 2nd Rex release has digital face.
