Hey Jayson - did you have to ask for the case to be brought out or was it sitting on the floor waiting to be stocked?

It was a sealed case in the employee's hands waiting to be put on the pegs.

Wow! Not where Pete and I attempt to find figures. :-\

Seriously!

Thanks for the info Jayson, but it sounds to me like you live in some nirvana-world where stores are stocked by employees in the middle of the day!

Heh heh..   :P

Sounds like I may have a pretty decent chance of getting this at retail...

No problem, glad to help. If you need it, here is the pertinent info from the side of the case to track down stock at your store:

I saw the R2-D2 from this wave on the pegs....none of the others though.

Great new on the 5/1 front. Maybe it'll quell all the typical and stupid rumors that each store is only getting one case.

I saw something weird at Tustin TRU. They had an empty encap setup that said "Reserve your collectible figure here". It seems you have to take a ticket to the cash register to get your "collectible figure". I know that store is plagued with scalpers but isn't that a little extreem?

Specifically about the EU wave of SW? Or was it just an empty endcap with that sign? I'm confused and a little worried.

Doesn't TRU have some type of preorder thing in store now?  Maybe it's that?  Or maybe I've been hearing things.

I'm way out of the loop apparently. I just want to go in there some day and grab the figs and hand them some cash. My concern is getting higher that these are going to be impossible to find if I have to preorder them in the store.

That "reserve your collectible figure" policy has nothing to do with the EU wave - it is a TRU wide policy that has been running for a while now and mainly affects stuff inthe "collectible" aisle - McFarlane, NECA, Diamond Select, etc.

So what you're saying is don't freak out about every rumor/ post I read before knowing for sure what is up with it?  ;)

Oh good. That sign made me worried.

I know this may sound crazy, but hopefully Ross and all those other stores will eventually get leftovers of the EU wave. Has that been known to happen w/ exclusive assortments of basic figures? I've only heard of this happening so far w/ exclusive Evolutions sets and vehicles.
