Could anyone help me out with a couple of these (once they arrive). I really want a Grievous and a Clone Trooper. I'd like to get a Tarful too, but it's not high on my list.

I got an email from my crackbrick dealer and he said that all he's heard on Series 10 is that its "delay".  However, he's all paid up and expects to get them here in the US at or right near the street date in Japan.

Maybe they release series 10 in some sort of toy show (medicom/parco show 2009). Then release them after 3-4 weeks officially

This is what happened to series 9 when I was out in tokyo last year. This was around about late June and is typical of delays by medicom standards.

After following up with his supplier, my guy said that Medicom has stated a 5/29 release.

That's a longer wait, oh well save those pennies dollars.

No update on the NCSX site.  They still show a ship date 'on or around April 25, 2009', which to me translates into 'We'll ship it whenever we get it'...

NCSX now has their ship date as 'on or around late May 2009'...  Looks like BrentS's guy was right about the May 29th date...

I just checked HLJ & now they now mention a June 3rd release. If this keeps up, it will be out by X-Mas.

I got confirmation from my distributor that the Kubricks are headed to their warehouse. They are supposed to leave Japan on 5/29

With the recent announcement of the June 20 Parco Medicom Toy show 2009 I would bet against it that SW10 release date be delayed again!

My hunch would be they release SW10 during the 2009 show. That was what happened last year when I was out in Tokyo Jun-08 and bagged myself 2x Yellow clone troopers from box of 12

Still had fond memories when I was lining up for the show at 9:30am round the Parco building. With this given to me in the line just to enter and be admitted

I heard back from my distributor again and his wholesaler said that Series 10 was delayed again. No specific details were given though. I'd guess its being held until around the Parco show.

Yeah, HLJ is now showing June 12th. With the Parco show being from June 20th to June 29th, I expect the release shortly after. Going to be a bugger on the wallet with this series & the Fett's carded & loose around the same time.  :-\
