3 per case, that's better. 12 total, that's not better.

Looks like EE has these available for preorder now. I got an email on it today. All revision cases for wave 4. And I was wrong, I guess these are all shipping in September and 1 looks like it may ship in August. I'm thinking I may wait for New Force to list these since they've been having better luck filling preorders but I'm thinking if hasbro is going to screw them these would be the waves they do it on. Thoughts? I really hate preordering from EE when their USPS shipping is the same as NF's UPS shipping and their cases are about $9 more. I have a case of wave 2.1 on the way from EE now and depending on the condition I may cancel any other open orders I have with them and move them all to NF. Since I only recently started preordering from NF and I've never ordered a case of figures from EE, only comics, I'm not sure what condition they'll arrive in. Anyone have any experience with this they'd like to comment with?

Well just to add to the mix, BBTS also has them up for pre-order. I have never had a problem with them.

Only ninety dollars? I gotta get it now!  :P

That's just completely ridiculous.

From the picture these UGH gold cards and coins do look pretty handsome, though... ;)

Done.   8)



(clicky for larger pic)

No, they didn't come from retail - I got all 4 of the UGH cases (which I pre-ordered from New Force) in the mail today.  ;)

Good one Jeff.  I decided against ordering from NFC just because I didn't want to have all the extra figures from these waves.  I'm on the fence on this whole UGH this year.  I skipped UGP last year.  If I find any at retail, I'm not sure if I'll want to open them to put the coins in the album or put them in Star Cases as unopened.  95% of my collection is loose - just keep carded the "exclusives" usually.

Gotta ask Jeff....

Do you have a loose set for the coin album, if not, are you planning on picking up another set to finish off the album??

Very cool, i thought about buying the cases but couldnt bring myself to spend all that money at once for them. I hope to find them eventually.

Nope.

Nope.

Nope.  One carded set is good enough for me.  :)

That's definitely neat...  Smart collecting on Jeff's part.  I was contemplating a loose set, but man I dunno...  I saw barely any UGH last year so I'm doubting I'll luck into these on pegs, and obviously I didn't order like Jeff did. 

That'd be a lot of extras, or not so much?

Not so much really... I ended up with:

- all 12 UGH Figures (for me)
- my 14x Wave 4 figures (7 carded, 7 loose)
- a set of 7x Wave figures for a MN pal
- 5 more Wave 4 figures for other MN guys

That's 38, leaving just 10 extra pegwarmers to sell or return to Target/Wal-Mart.  ;)

Nice, it's looking very pertty.  Finding these will be such a pain for me with work and all.  May the force be with us all looking for these.

I didn't think of spliting cases with someone. I have a local friend who doesn't want the UGH, that could have helped soften the almost $400 blow.
