Says my order has been placed, but have not yet received confirmation email. I had an error message and had to reorder it but it went through at least so I am still hopeful. 

They also billed me. So...

Same except i had to do 2 orders cause fighter wasn't loading at first. I'm risking it and am not buying the Gunship online. I want it in person so i got the Slave 1, Marauder, Forge (pre order), and fighter cause I really wanted those.

For me the Cruiser wasn't loading and I think I got REALLY damn lucky because I waited it out and I got em all in one order. As of now I have two Marauders, the Fighter, the Cruiser and I grabbed the Saturn V because I've had my eye on it for ages. I think I'm going to grab the Forge later I didn't want to go THAT broke. 

EMAIL CONFIRMATION! WOO!

the missions, the nightmares, they're finally over. 

I'm honestly shocked nothing's sold out yet including the Gunship.

Saturn V was totally worth it. 

I finally had some confirmations too after a tumultuous first 15 to 20 minutes.

I thought I'd stop by the site, maybe get a duel on mandalore to go alongside my bad batch pre-order.

I'm currently number          in que with a waiting time of "      "

I was able to place an order for the gunship and the Sailboat Adventure is with it.

I didn't even realize that was a thing and I'm glad I had the site open at like 11:30. Honestly this seems to be going much better then January did on the whole. Kudos, Lego. Minor ones, for being able to take our money properly, but kudos nonetheless.

Got my order in for the Trexler Marauder(along with the Birds of Paradise botanical set for my mom for Christmas, it's insane how popular the Botanical Collection sets are. My wife and I wanted to get my mom the Bouquet for Mother's day and we weren't able to get one until a couple weeks ago). I had the BB shuttle preordered so now I wait for that to ship too. The que system for the website was definitely new, hopefully that actually helps. It made things pretty smooth for me.

I only got one confirmation email (Mando Fighter) so I think I got screwed but I'm holding out hope. Everything is still in stock right now so I might order it again but I doubt my local store (or any for that matter) will run out of anything other than the gunship and fighter.

In the UK at least everything is still available 8hrs later so they seem to have got their stock and production levels sorted. 👍

Same in Aus, it's now evening of the 1st and all new models still in stock on lego.com. Hopefully that means better supply than the last 12 months.

Yay, I've just ordered a Bad Batch Shuttle & two Trexler Marauder sets from Amazon, which will arrive tomorrow! It feels like I've been waiting for these to be released for ages, lol. :laugh:

Not so much now.  Just went online to make my order and a few sets are now showing as out of stock.  Disappointing.

Boy, I'm glad I live in Australia where I had virtually 0 problems when ordering, except for my GWP showing up a few minutes late

Better pictures of the Forge figures are out and ew Visla’s backpack build is horrendous

Yikes, while the rest of the set looks AMAZING, that jetpack looks like a 4+ build. I won't be using it on my display of it.

2 1x1 clips and two lightsaber hilts would have been just fine. Idk what they were thinking.

Just ordered the Mandalorian Starfighter and Duel on Mandalore so i am pretty excited.
Only set that is sold out here from the new wave is the bad batch shuttle.

Paz Vizsla's jetpack looks bad, i wonder if i could just add a normal jetpack on top of that new armor piece. (nvm you can't)

Does anyone know if Target is getting the Meditation Chamber set in the US? 
 

I’m seeing it on Walmart’s website, but not Target’s.

I doubt the gunship sells out.  If they thought it would, there would be a VIP early access.

still available as of right now

since no one is doing it yet, I will be the scapegoat and be one to complain about colors again. Are people who choose colors for minifigs color blind? What were they thinking making Paz Viszla's armor color sand blue? It is dark blue on screen and on promotional material? how hard is it to match it? And armorer definitely needed a cape piece.

In several interviews it has been stated that TLG doesn't just mostly work with concept art but that they HAVE to work with the existing colour paletes they get. Sometimes that can be more accurate due to lightning changing the looks of something onscreen. But yeah doesn't change anything when something looks dark green but we get it in light green.

It's also possible this is just an excuse and designers just don't have too much contact with source material so they just choose what they see in some pictures - aka probably concept art. In that case they wouldn't have done their research.

Having many artists and designers as friends I can tell you that they actually do complain about clients not giving them enough liberty about such things as colours. Therefore it happens that a company forces them to choose a colour that doesn't work in a setting (like in a bar when it's dark).

I think Paz Viszla’s armor appears a bit darker than it actually is in photos, some of the shots from the show have really dark lighting.  Also, it has sort of a weathered quality to it, where I think if the minifigure used  dark blue, it might look a little bit too clean.  It’s not perfect but I think it looks alright, the lighter color makes it have more of a matte quality.

As I predicted, the only one out of stock in america is the BB shuttle. ("I thought it was obvious"). You'd think the pre-orders would mean they'd have a better idea of how many they needed to produce, but I guess they underestimated how much people wanted gonky. :laugh:

Speaking of the shuttle, it shipped...and I still haven't been charged as far as I can tell. Odd, but I'm not complaining!

Damn I'm really not in a good mood today. Went to the lego store today, arrived around 9am after a 2 hour drive, bout 20 people in line so I was like this is going to be allright, right? Well no, the Gunship sold out in about 10 minutes. By this time there were well over 100 people in queue. I called the store on saturday and they told me they had plenty in stock so I asked for the manager. Appearantly they only received 14 Gunships, so I pretty much wasted my day with a mindset of not buying anything directly from lego again, long live Amazon.
