Hi All,

I just heard that Hasbro cancelled wave 13 so NewForce isn't gonna get anymore of that exact case.

A replacement case with "most" of the same figures will be offered in Sept/Oct timeframe.

I'd be careful though, because with Hasbro "most" could mean only threee of the figures!

I guess this is one of those few times when pre-ordering blows up in your face!

Glad I picked up a Wat Tambor at Target when I saw him...

Jeff

I was just going to post this same news Jeff, thanks :)

Sucks...which strenghtens my arguement that Hasbro absolutely is run by morons.  Here they are with Hundreds of customers that are waiting for product...and their response "Blame Retailers"

BS I tell you, and I too am glad I picked up my stuff when I did at target

WEll that just plain sucks.  And not that I'm blaming Newforce either.  What they don't have, they can't sell.  I must say though I am more than a little ticked.  This leaves a pretty big hole in the figs I need and I was counting on this case in particular.  Must have been too convenient to have 12 different figures in a case.  Grrrrrr. >:( :'(

I just checked EE and they pushed their wave 13 case to August (this has been on going since May).   Wave 11 still states July but I'm sure that will be bumped to August also.  Yup, another slap in the face from Hasbro.  :P

Rick did stop in over at the 'scums forum that is dealing with this topic and since he might not be aware that it's being posted in again over here I thought I'd link you to his response.
I hope this helps with any questions anyone has or had...

PS:  You have to scroll down a bit to get to his response.

UPDATE:  If you scroll down further you'll see that Entertainment Earth has also replied and as far as they know, the case orders will be filled but not until September.

Maybe for online retailers it may take awhile for these figures to show up. Not for regular stores. I know that here in Indy that I have seen this wave four or five times already including today at Target.
So far I have seen this wave once at Wal-Mart and the rest at Target.

One Target in my area today put out the Jedi Starfighter, Trade Tank, Gun Ship and wave 13.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com
