if anyone wants 72 old vintage figures check ft wright saw they had a ton of crap hablow sent them a promo for the blu ray release and its all old product. nothing past wv 5. basically gree vader luke han clone r5 etc....

hasbro is sitting on so much unsold product its just sad. and the retailers get it thinking they are getting fresh product for shame hasblow for shame lol

i was hoping for new cantina aliens soon ponda etc... but it doesnt look that way.

I have not posted on here in months. That is in large part because I never find squat. I still have not seen the Rebel Fleet Trooper, but I hope the new rumors of purging are true and we get some new stuff.

I haven't seen one either. But I've seen wave 7 twice, once with Fordo, Bariss, Han, but no Lorgray, Bom, or RFT. Another time just with Han.

For the Stormtrooper, check TRU. I'm not sure it is the corrected version or not, but I know they have quite a few Stormtroopers. I haven't seen the other in a few weeks.

well i guess if you want to drop 25 big ones on the target exclusive landspeeder and tauntaun they are in the area. saw 4 or more at a lot of stores riddge, eastagte, etc...

anyone else not seeing many good items being release din 2012? Hasbro seems to be sucking with repacks and remakes galore.

Yeah, I bought the Landspeeder and Tauntaun (I really like this one and may to get at least one more). However, I'm more interested in the new figures that should be hitting any day now.

what new figures are coming out?

I thought the target exclusives were the last before december. Is the DR E vintage wave hitting or new cw? I dont follow all the websites so I dont see whats the newest. The last wvs of cw all hit the area at once a while bk and I only saw 2 cases of the V ponda wv in the area. So hopefully something new will hit soon as u say.

I'm still waiting to see the new Ponda, et al. That's the last for this year, I think.
I saw Wave 9 except Shan on my run. I picked up Echo Base Trooper, already had a Keyan and the Ponda.

Still looking for the Search for Luke pack.

My local TRU had multiples of the Commando/TFU packs, I picked up a Commando one for Thanksgiving (it's fun to taunt yourself every once in a while...)

Haven't seen much really. I did see Bastila and the Wave at my Kmart a little while ago, though. No new CW beyond the Kamino ARF Wave.

I'm in Cincinnati and usually don't shop in NK, so hopefully they pop up here in Cincinnati.

What's the "tfu junkhead and sky shadow"?

I miss the hunt. :(

But there isn't really anything out there I'm going to find without spending a fortune in gas but even then looking for old items in stores is a hit or miss.

I wish Hasbro didn't put the waves so close together this time. At least they actually came out though.

yeah

Hasbro really dropped the ball this xmas. they are not even really pushing any of their othe rlines either so....I dont know what is up.

I know on the books star wars is not selling as good at retail as they want, but hasbros cases packs outs are horrible and they make them not the retailers.

It could of been a better holiday season for both Hasbro and collectors if they would've pushed the Kithaba wave back to December (this month) instead of next year. :(

the distribution is not so bad it the case packs

hasbro has done the same with maevl universe as well doing 1 of each new figure per case and 8 repacks until the last and upcoming waves and all new cases are at least 2 of each new figure.

if anyone collects transfomers ive seen restocks of transformers prime at most toys r us stores this week.

I very rarely find anything new. I finally got a rebel fleet trooper last week. The only other new Star Wars I have seen are Bastila Shan and Hoth Trooper. I've still never seen Bespin Han or Walrus Man.

I did see some new Joes but not the Zombie Viper Wave. Which sucks, because I want the Zombie in a bad way.
