Toys R Us has sent out Emails yesterday, reminding us that their 2014 SDCC Exclusives will be available today at 10am ET on ToysRus.com. You can also buy them at the SDCC at Entertainment Earth's Booth #2343.
The Walgreens Exclusive TBS 6" Boba Fett Prototype is now listed as "Temporally out of stock" as of 9:50pm PST on 7/23/14. I really hope you guys were able to get your pre-orders in, when we first reported them being available.
If you missed out on the pre-order, be sure to keep checking Walgreens throughout this week. Also I would like to mention that these are suppose to be available at brick and mortar stores as well in the future.
Curious on how Hasbro created its 6-inch Jabba the Hutt Action Figure for the 2014 SDCC? A website called mental_floss has the behind the scenes and processes used to create this set. I actually first came across this story from a post on JediDefender. Pretty interesting read.
Couldn't sleep last night, so at about 4am, I grabbed my iPad and was surfing the net and decided to check the status on the Walgreens Exclusive TBS 6" Prototype Boba Fett and what do you know its available for pre-order (See screen shot above). After seeing that it was available on my iPad, I turned on my Desktop and it still showed out of stock. I cleared the cache and checked again. Still out of stock. Tried on my iPhone and it allows you to update quantity, but there is no add to cart button. Went back to my iPad and successively placed 2 orders. First order was around 4am and a second at 5am. The orders went though and I got a confirmation email for both already. I don't own any Android products, so I am not sure if you can order on that platform or not at the moment.
Boba Fett has a estimated ship date of 10/15/14.
Remember you heard it here first!
Update: Ordering using a Laptop and Desktop is now working. Only issues seem to be with moble browsers as we first reported. If you have the option on your mobile phone to view Walgreens.com as a "Full Site", this will fix the issue. As of 11:15am PST, these are still available for pre-order, but are now limited to 2 per order.
Thank you for submitting your questions for our Q&A session with Hasbro at the 2014 SDCC. Here are the final 20 questions we will try and ask within our allotted 10 minutes.
1. I thought the whole idea behind the Rebels and Saga Legends figures was to cut cost by reducing articulation which is fine, but whats going on with the quality i.e. paint applications? They look Terrible!
2. Please tell us that Hasbro has given up on the reduced sized 3.75" vehicles and is going back to the normal sized ones. My kids hate them.
3. Whats with all the sloppy paint applications on all the Star Wars Toy lines? You guys are demanding a premium price for a subpar product. Do you not care about quality control anymore?
4. How come the updated Black Series #12 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper never seen a US release? It only got released in the UK.

Jason Isaacs will be the voice of the Inquisitor! Check out the video and press release:
In the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series, the Empire rules with an iron fist, spreading fear from world to world. Meanwhile, the few remaining Jedi are hunted across the galaxy -- and the cold, calculating Imperial Inquisitor is the hunter.
Fully revealed in this new video, the Inquisitor recalls classic Star Wars villains but is also distinct in many ways. According to Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo, the Inquisitor is not a Sith, though he does wield a red lightsaber and taps into the dark side. “His intensity is based on the purpose of the assignment,” Hidalgo says. The design of the Inquisitor evolved during early phases of production, but one specific element truly finalized both the character’s threatening look and personality.
“Once we put the [Pau’an] head on, it all kind of fell into place,” says executive producer Dave Filoni. Indeed, the Inquisitor’s face is intimidating and frightening, featuring carved lines, red markings, and jagged teeth. “Suddenly there was this black-suited, armored, creepy, evil Inquisitor. It’s unmistakable.” One crucial factor in bringing the Inquisitor to life, however, is his voice – and that task falls to a veteran of villainy.
