I just realized EE has this case up for preorder with a June delivery for $99.99

Thanks anyhow TRU!  I'll have mine delivered to my door and skip all the usual bull**** at your store.


You can't find a K'Kruhk on a peg hook at TRU, but you sure can find him all over eBay for $25.



Preordering this as soon as I get home. Thanks for the heads up!

I talked to a very helpful TRU employee that is expecting 5k more figures. So this wave may show up in heavier numbers soon. Also the $5 sale goes until July so the price is still right. Here is hoping!

I was looking for anything I could use to postpone a public meltdown, and this bit of news will do just fine.

Of course, EE will delay delivery over and over again until its Christmas. By that time these things will be peg warming for months. At least that is my experience. I just don't see paying $10 each for figures if they can't keep their initial ETA. Too bad there isn't a discount if the order is delayed.

I dunno.. I really don't see much from this wave pegwarming at all, outside of the repacks and Utris.

True, but I was able to get the Indiana Jones Temple of Doom wave from EE without any trouble, so I'm willing to take a chance.

don't know if this is a nation wide thing that can be said to be gospel for all stores - but mine gets shipments Wednesday and Friday year round - with more of course during the holidays.

as for EE - I have never had a problem with them and they are always pretty reliable imo.

Yep, I'd call your particular store to find out as sometimes it depends on store volume. (Slower stores get fewer trucks, busier stores get more.)

Wow.  I feel really lucky.  I've seen this wave a few times over the last two weeks.  TRU's in Bronx/Queens seem to be loaded.

Did I read this correctly that someone told you they had 5,000 more figures on the way?  I hope that is the case as these are fantastic figures and a lot of people seemed to have missed out.  That said, I now trust TRU employees about as far as I can throw my car.

Youy read correctly and even Galactic Hunter got some word from Hasbro.

If anyone here comes across this wave I would be more than happy to reward the effort of picking them up for me. I can even send the money beforehand.  Those that have dealt with me know I am good for it. I really want some extra Jainas to make a few personal customs. PM me if anyone can help I will also throw in anything from my trade list including vehicles if you an get the whole way and a few extras. I just got more AT-ST's in 2 weeks ago and would happily throw one in. A local WM had some tucked away. I would love to cancel my wave case so I am not stuck with extras.

I'll keep an eye out for ya. I'd really love to work a swap for the Holocron Heist and Jedi Showdown Battlepacks, if you can get ahold of those. Will PM if/when I can find something...thanks in advance~

A little late posting here, but I checked our local store on Saturday as well, but no sign of the EU wave here.  I'm not really sure what to do with this wave, as I was thinking of preordering it as well - but I'm not sure if I have to have everyone in the wave.  Sure, I'd like to and would probably pick them up if I found them in the store, but as I'm running out of room lately I'm really considering and re-considering every EU figure I buy.  Its getting tougher to just jam them all in the Cantina if I don't have somewhere for them to go :).  I'd really like K'Kruhk more than anything else (well, and the BaD), and thought about the Spacetrooper as well.  The others look nice too, but I guess I could live without them.  Considering I'm just ho-hum on much of the wave, I'm not sure if I want to spend $100 on a case or not.  I think they could have just sent this to mass retail as well, and it would have done just fine.  I bet I could count on one hand how many Legacy figures are on the pegs locally between the "big 3", and it has been that way for awhile.
