So when are these supposed to "officially" hit?

Oooh, thanks, I kept getting mixed up by Hasbro's screwy slides that claimed this was wave 5 and it was due for January 2011.

I am surprised these have not appeared on preorder yet on the etailers sites. Now that Wave 2 is in ample supply and shipped I find it weird they do not have the next wave up for presale, I have been buying by the case since 2006 and this is the first time I can remember a wave only 2 months out not up for preorder (sans the summer hiatus). I will be buying at least two cases and many extras of this wave for sure. I need a lot Lukes and Gamorreans.

Yeah, I keep checking for this one as well - but haven't seen it available either.  Probably my most anticipated wave of the year, so many nice figures included.  I wonder if the wave is slightly delayed, or they just haven't gotten them up for some reason.

AMPLE SUPPLY?

I haven't seen one bit of the ROTS wave yet, and mind you I don't live in the sticks.  NATIONAL DISTRIBUTION of a wave takes a little bit of time.  And based on Hasbro's comments at both Comic Con and CV, it sounds like they're scrambling internally to get the ROTJ wave to market.

BBTS has 2 ROTJ wave assortments up for pre-order. One includes 2 Gammorean Guards, the other, 2 Rebel Commandos. Nice.  8)

Where's Yoda?   

We knew Wedge was getting pushed back, but I thought Yoda was supposed to be in this wave too...

They are all over the Chicago area so here they are in ample supply. I see them everywhere, the only one that seems harder to track down is Cody.

I bought a case of each plus extra Gammorean. Lukes and Rebels. I cannot wait for this wave. I only hope they place the ugly batch numbers in more discreet locations. I am concerned about this.

Nice to see these up for pre-order now finally.  I can't wait for that Rebel and Gam Guard...  And Ackbar, and Luke and and and...  *sigh*  Well suffice it to say I'm pretty geeked for this wave.  I'm hoping for a good number of Rebels and Gam Guards though.

I haven't seen one bit of the ROTS wave yet, and mind you I don't live in the sticks.  NATIONAL DISTRIBUTION of a wave takes a little bit of time.  And based on Hasbro's comments at both Comic Con and CV, it sounds like they're scrambling internally to get the ROTJ wave to market.

A couple of weeks can make a significant difference.  I've seen the ROTS wave at WalMart in quantity within the past week.  But it's only dribs and drabs at TRU.  And I haven't seen it at all at Target.

It's definitely remarkable that the preorders are finally starting for the ROTS wave.  EE is starting to list this wave as well.  The delivery dates are putting it out in November.  If Hasbro can hold to that schedule there is a CHANCE that wave 4 MIGHT get out before the holidays.

I too haven't seen any ROTS figures. Makes me worry for the ROTJ wave in my local area, and, if this keeps up, the AOTC wave will be doomed. :-\

In my area walmart and TRU are getting plenty of ROTS wave (I have actually seen all of the ugh foil cards), but Target isn't, I hope that target skips the ROTS wave and go right to ROTJ.

I popped in the RS forums this morning before leaving for work and saw a post from Curto where I believe he said the EE is going to have 11 different assortments of the ROTJ wave...   :o    definitly due to the scrambling on Hasbro's part to move out Yoda and Wedge imo.

also, I am hoping EE puts these up for preorder today.  I remember reading a while back that there is a $5 off coupon that ends today - the code is "Rebelscum"

today just may be the day that I make me first order for an entire case of SW figures.

edit:  EE has them up.  Rev 4 has the 2 Gams.  I am currently scouring the internet for a code better then $5 off - which is merely a wash with BBTS as EE is charging more for shipping than BBTS
