As soon as Rick posted VSTC for pre-order I ordered them, then I waited deciding on the Coruscant wave and I waited too long because New Force had them listed as sold out of pre-orders. So I ordered that case from EE. I asked Rick a few times about the Tatooine Wave and he hadn't had anything up yet, so tonite I ordered it at EE. $10 more but it's better having the peace of mind....and saving time and gas.
Me along with some local friends have had a few orders not get fulfilled because of Hasbros allotments to NFC. We've had plenty fulfilled though and Rick is great to deal with, and an all around great guy, but I'm afraid months after the figures are out my order will be cancelled and I'll have to resort to ebay, and more headaches than if I'd paid the extra $10 to EE. Literally for 2 weeks my Target has had ONE hook for figures...and I have not seen anything new on my sid eof town for months. I wa sout of town this week and saw most of the Coruscant wave (even grabbed scorch because my case is supposed to have an UGH Scorch) So with the situation in my part of town, I'm just going to order cases, and any leftovers and UGH's will be used for trade bait for things I need (like Vader UGH and Vader an dYOda out of HEroes and Villains) or will go to the 'bay.
So short story...EE for cases. worth the extra $10.
