Today I managed to get my first two of these - Boba Fett and the Snowtrooper... I have no idea if I'll be able to put together an entire set - but I'll be damned if I'm going to pay a penny over retail for any of them.

(Thanks again Paul)

Found the Obi Wan at Target and sold it to a friend for $7.00 today.  He was very excited, but to me these are just silly gimmicks.

I know it's still early in the game, but does anybody know how long these will continue to ship?

I think Jared mentioned to me that they'd be rolling out for about a month, Mike.

I actually scooped up my second Fett today, from a little kid in the aisles, no less.  He beat me to it (after I hadn't noticed it in my preliminary peg scanning), but was just going to open the thing, so I asked if I could hook him up with a regular TSC version in exchange for the Silver logoed UGH one, and he was cool with that (as was his mom, who was with him).  Nice kid!  8)

I still need a couple of Scorch, Cody and Grievous though, but at least I'm getting closer to finishing the loose and carded sets finally.  Hopefully I'll have some extras to share with the gang here soon too.

Bigbadtoystore has all the UGH figs in stock, though most are a bit too expensive.

Some of their UGH prices aren't too bad, surprisingly.  Maybe worth a look for some of the lower-end ones that are only about $12 there.

My question is:  Why is their TSC Wave 1 Barada figure more expensive ($25) than all of their UGH figures except for Scorch.  Am I missing something here?!  ???

Thanks Hemish... my preorder has been submitted. It adds a hefty piece of mind.

Hasbro can take their UGH and shove it now.

I'm tempted but I can't tell how much shipping is.

FYI - $174 Aussie dollars = $124 U.S. dollars.

send em an email and they should get back to you in a couple days, they are getting swamped by the aussie guys at the moment.
The case would be less than $124 US you forgot to take out the 10% GST so it would be around $115-120 mark for the case , shipping would probably be about $20 -$30 aus so i'm guessing here around say $20 US so all up around the $140 US mark you get the full set plus the spare cody and snowtrooper.

I have the Snowtrooper, Anakin and Obi-Wan.  I was late to Walmart the other day and watched a guy clear the shelf out and leave a few old figures from wave 1.  He offered to move this cart out of my way so I could get by but I think the shocked look on my face told him I wasn't trying to get by, I was trying to get to the spot he was standing in. 

Oh well....hopefully the Target by my daughter will come through soon and I'll have all the new toys I am looking for.

New Force is hoping for full allocation this week. I have my fingers crossed as I am waiting for a case that has some U clones, cody and scorth; among others.

Full allocation?  Are you sure?  I've heard quite the opposite...

I'm still waiting for my Geo wave...


I know some others ordered from New Force too so I thought I'd post an update.

Today I recieved cases 3A, 3B, 3C from them.  That would be Wave 3, Wave 3.1, and Wave 3.2 listings from their site.  And, according to Rick, they should get Wave 3.3 and Wave 3.4 in the next few weeks along with more of the first three.

So, if your order hasn't shipped yet, you still might get your order filled in the next week or two...

Thanks Jeff,
3.4 is the case I ordered I believe with the Scorch bounty hunt, plus a couple of clones, Cody and a fire pilot as well as newer stuff.  Here's hoping I got in early.

I picked up cases from DNStoys.com. I received my shipment from them last week and received all 5 cases in one shot :o. I wasn't expecting that. I was able to get rid of the extra sets (at retail of course) I had pretty quickly to fellow collectors so it worked out pretty well.

I wasn't planning on trying to put together a carded and loose set of these but now I'm reconsidering ::). I have Matt to thank for that  ;) :P.
