I even mentioned in FP that some online retailers will be getting some and they have a big site and they still said probably not. Just checked their Pre-order section and they have all the Vintage and Clone Wars figures, BP, vehicles etc but not these. oh well. :roll:


Why E-bay? Order through BBTS, they have the case of (6) for $74.99 and the full case for $99.99.

Its nice to see they were available online, if only for a few hours, haha - hopefully a good amount of collectors were able to get a set. I just hope scalpers didnt noticed them, because they tend to lurk on websites and pounce the moment they are available at any location...then you can find them on Ebay for $20 each a week later.

I Stopped by TRU today trying to find CW figures that I'm missing and and Shaak Ti for myself, and a K'kruhk for my nephew, they had the leftovers of 3 cases of EU figures and 3 cases of CW figures - nothing I was looking for though. I did see one of the Bespin guard aliens...its crazy how much variation there is when it comes to the blue/green paint on his face - the one I saw today was nearly covered - there was more blue/green than fleshtone!

I have heard of some scalper supposedly living off this, but you think HOW? :?

Yeah what is up with the EU wave? Seriously, I just went ahead and bought a K'kruhk on ebay, what I spent saved me in gas money driving all over Gods creation.

Well my update as of today is still nada nothing zilch zip zero for me. I have to work and I can only hit their crappy stores in the afternoon which usually means nothing. From what I can tell though out of the 2 stores around me they have had nothing at all since their single case shipment. :|

I-10 and Ray Rd. in Chandler, AZ?? if so, I was there at 11AM and just found a lone Bespin Alien guard. I did see leftovers of 3-4 cases and not one :?


Yeah the one in Chandler. On May 4th I was there at 11:30 and they had sold the six new figs and just had Luke JK, Obi, Maul and R2. Then on May 7th they had just 1 case. I went today May 11 and they received nothing new.

These don't seem to be hitting in my area anymore... at least not for now. I hope they get more in, as I know there's still a lot of collectors in my neck of the woods who haven't found them yet. I met up with a local collector today and sold him what extras that I had as he's been coming up empty on his toy runs for this wave.

:wink:

central Iowa has been dry for new cases for over a week now

I see many of the carry-forward figures grow in number by at least 2, so the new figures are being bought by somebody
