Woke up to more "shipping soon" emails from Hasbro. ML & JOES are decimating my account right now.

Great news! I was really hoping for my Crimson Guard before the end of the year.

My Zarana just showed up from Gamestop! Thanks again mrboshek for the heads up on that!
What a great figure, she is pretty well executed and looks great, but be careful her arms can pop out of the bicep swivel very easily. I've seen people mention this in their reviews, comments, and posts. I'm worried after awhile this could get loose and need a permanent solution. Also her joints were tight and needs a bit of careful heat to get her working right. Also watch pulling her arms up (t pose for lack of a better word). The shoulder armour will to bunch up, and can limit her mobility, and could tear over time if it isn't treated right. She is still pretty great, the two hair pieces fit perfect, and stay on tight! The double elbows and bicep swivels are nice to have on a hasbro female figure. They need to keep that up!

That was fast! Last night, GS sent an email saying my order is almost ready and to make sure my payment and address info is up to date. I hope it's just the holiday slowing things down a bit.

Shipping was $5 (canadian or about $3.75 usd), but it was $7 (or about $5.25 usd) for priority. I thought it was totally worth priority at that price, and getting it today proved it to me.

Hasbro Pulse sent a shipping soon email this morning. It doesn't say which figures, but the last unshipped items on this order include this wave, Aayyla Secura, and the Sister. I hope Pulse's timeliness continues with the next wave of Joes and X-Men retro because I also have their preorders in a less than certain situation.

I have CG and Z on separate orders with nothing else on them. I haven’t received any shipping soon emails from Pulse, as of yet.

Took a risk again with ordering from GameStop since it shows Dusty in stock supposedly.

Edit: Never mind. Apparently it’s preorder for Feb2023. Although I don’t think it show it in the app when ordering but shows up in the order confirmation. Kinda shady for GameStop to do that unless I missed something.

Okay, I got my original post all wrong. This notice must have been for Sarge because I received a tracking # for him and three more shipping soon emails early this morning, which must be for Dusty, Zarana, and CG. Then the last two figures on this order would be Aayla and the Sister. I didn't notice Sarge was on this order. I got one from BBTS when they listed their in stock figures. I thought I canceled, but I'm also kind of happy I didn't.
GameStop is onto day 8 without shipping Zarana. IIRC, she was in stock into the next morning after I ordered. Went out of stock, then back in stock. I'm begining to doubt GameStop is a competent retailer.

My Pulse Order is shipping soon for the whole wave, and just today I got my Gamestop Canuck call for Dusty only, in store.

I got charging notice for Zarana and Dusty as well from Pulse. Really looking forward to Zarana after looking at MattK's review. Didn't realize she was a DoubleDealer sculpt. Makes me all the more excited.

Got my call from Gamestop in Canada that my Dusty is in for pick up! Wasn't expecting it this soon.

Got my charge for Crimson Guard and Zarana as well. I'm really looking forward to both. I canceled my preorder for Dusty. I'll pick him up eventually but he just looks a bit boring. True to the vintage figure, sure, but not overly interesting. I think a lot of these more straight-forward army designs will pegwarm a bit, similar to Flint. They're definitely not bad figures, they just aren't as eye-catching as a Cobra troop or a Native American with a freaking eagle (and even those went on sale).

Pulse charged me for Zarana, Dusty, and 2x CGs. My extra CGs were ordered at Dorkside, but I wound up canceling. Hopefully Amazon will get CGs back down to a reasonable price. Right now, only available through third party a doubled mark up.
