Considering I haven't seen Wave 7 and we're in July, I'd say that their predicted times are pretty much useless. I've known it for a while, but they seem to have gotten less and less accurate.

They should just combine the new figures from wave 4 and 5 into one wave. That would simplify things a bit.

It would also help to curb a number of potential pegwarmers...if all 8 new figures were in 1 case, we'd only be stuck with 4 repacks, and if they selected characters that remain in high demand, we may actually see entire cases selling out at retail...

Would have preferred this:

- Ponda Baba x 2 (new)
- Bastila Shan x 2 (new)
- Hoth Rebel Trooper x 2 (new)
- Captain Fordo x 2 (carry forward)
- Gamorrean Guard x 2 (carry forward)
- Rebel Fleet Trooper x 2 (carry forward)

Is that too much to ask?

What really sucks is that HAsbro does not seem to be addressing the issues we have all brought up as far as case assortments and getting stock out. Things just have not gotten better at all and seeing these new ratios are leaving me disheartened.

Not to 99% if not 100% of members here and collectors all round.

To Hasbro,it seems like asking them to bring the moon closer to the earth.

The reason Hasbro wont release a case like that is because all the repacks are higher cost figures, they all sport SA, 2 have softgoods, and they are all packed with numerous accessories. Hasbro would complain that they arent making enough money from an assortment like that... I agree with collectors though, and I think they should be meeting the demand - and brand new figures shouldnt be 1 to a case ever again...for any SW line.

Bastila Shan now on ebay...

click here.

With the distribution woes showing no end in sight, and this being limited to ONE per case... seems like a decent idea to go ahead and get one loose from tunghori.

I went ahead and ordered it, along with the Geo drone from the Republic Commando set, the tan Battle Droid and an R2 from Dagobah training set

Is it wrong that I want one but only because I want to use her for a handmaiden custom? :lol: I have no idea why she's so awesome or sought after having never played KotoR but she's got a good head sculpt, I loathe her costume but I reckon I could use it somewhere...somehow, I think softgoods with a less wide stance would have work better.
