No Carbon Freeze Chamber?

No Shuttle?

No Stormtrooper builder set?

C'mon these are the three things that I really really wanted. And now I can't get them because the fan club is too lazy to ship overseas and Hasbro decided to make the Shuttle exclusive to an overpriced store where the nearest location is over 20 000 kilometres away.

Please make the Shuttle and the other items available in Australia.

At least you are getting most of the Saga figs down under. We are only getting 15 and at $10 each!!! It's turned into a travesty this hobby thanks to Hasbro.

Hasbro: "We really do care"

Fan Club and US Retailer Exclusives in the UK
23 May 2002
There has been much interest shown in items from both the Fan Club in the US and other exclusives for retailers in the US.

The current policy of Hasbro UK is to bring in every Star Wars product that it is possible to do so and this extends to exclusives and Fan Club product. The good news is that the vast majority of this product will be coming into the UK.

Various products will be retailed through various retailers at various times! As the year moves on we will be able to provide more precise information but we are happy to inform you that the following products are on their way!

3 ” Snowspeeder with Luke and Dack will be available at The Forbidden Planet in June.

12” Bounty Hunter Assortment Wave II will be available from October. This assortment includes Dengar, Zuckass and Imperial Officer and will also be available through The Forbidden Planet.

12” Mace Windu will be available at Toys R Us in July (as previously reported).

As we get information relating to other products we will let you know.

Much interest has particularly been shown in the Fan Club Storm Trooper builder set. This product WILL be coming into the UK this year. HasbroJedi.co.uk will be able to reveal where and when you can get hold of these soon.
<font size="2" face="arial">This is all good and well for the UK. But will Australia also get the troop builder set, or the shuttle, or the snowspeeder?

There are tens of thousands of SW collectors in Australia who really wan't this stuff. Please make it available.

Perhaps you should check out the International section where you would find that Australia (TRU) did receive the Carbon Freezing Chamber, will be receiving the new Snowspeeder and TIE Bomber very shortly and by the end of the year or early next year should also have the Shuttle. There really isn't much that we are likely to miss out on. Believe it or not, Hasbro are listening!

But what about The Netherlands? I have heard reports from Spain, Portugal and Australia about the TIE-Bomber and the Snowspeeder and findings of new AOTC figs (Dooku, Massiif, new OT figs) in the UK and Australia, but what about The Netherlands? We have thousands of Star Wars fans here, but no merchandise and what we get is overpriced. Hasbro's driving up the prices and spoiling this thing for everyone. Enough is enough.
