New Force Comics has put up their preorder for the EB/Diamond co-exclusive Moe's Tavern interactive playset, due out for release in January. They're charging $34.99. Thanks to Scottbass for the heads up.

Australia, obviously unaffected by this situation, received the Series 10 figures last week. Stay tuned to local news outlets for updates on this situation.
