Edit: Second shipped as well.

Went ahead and ordered one, it's $1 cheaper than Amazon plus I get %5 off, can't beat that! I probably should have gotten two so I can swap heads with the non helmeted version.

ETA for mine from EE is 08/01. Pretty sure I plan on keeping it carded as long as the cardback is good.

I upgraded the soft goods on mine and altered it to look more like his outfit from ANH. Kind of felt he looked a bit like a cosplayer in the kenobi series…

Got mine today. What an excellent figure. He really comes to life with minimal effort/posing.

I just can't believe that Five Below actually had VC stuff. I'd picked up some 5 POA figures over the past few years but would have loved to have found some vintage collection.

My friend got it from 5 below back in 2013 I'm going to say and gave it to me as a gift.

I personally found several Imperial Navy Commanders and Darth Malgus back then. Some people found Gamorrean Guards in like August or Septmeber 2012. I remember that specifically because it was literally a week or two after I attended celebration that year.

Five Below had tons of VC figures during the waning days of 1.0

That's one that'd have been good to get cheap multiples of considering how much his value is on the secondary market now. And, of course, I missed him entirely.
I personally never saw him. A friend in Virginia saw him there at the time.

I bought this from Entertainment Earth, as I don't like to give all my money to that bald walking ***** Bezos. And now it's en route, while Obi Wan (also an EE order) is still listed with a delivery date of "November."

And, despite the fact that it's currently in a warehouse 45 minutes away from my home, its delivery date is showing up as August 6th.

Entertainment Earth, I'm trying to support you! Why do you make it so hard?

I was never into collecting Jabba goons, which is why I passed on so many of those figures, despite having ample opportunity to get them. Little did I know a barge was in our future. I can't believe Weequay didn't win the fan re-release vote. Still salty about that!

Sadly though not all of us have those chains nor had access to them online until recently. Thus so much missed.
