With all of the problems many (or most) of us have had finding figures at retail in 2003, do you think things will change for next year? Personally, there are a lot of figures being shown and/or rumored that I really don't want to miss out on...but its always nicer to find them in the store for retail price. I have finally seen 2003 figures at retail in the past two weeks, spotting a DF Padme, Flying R2, Research Droids, and a repacked Jango Fett KE so far. I also found the first two Screen Scene sets, but only had enough $ to pick up the Jedi Council one, and all were gone a week later when I came back. Also, my brother was nice enough to pick up WA-7, Emperor, Wat Tambor, repacked Vader, Coleman Trebor, and Dannl Faytonni (he lives about an hour away from me)...so I was thinking maybe retail might be starting to improve...even here in Nebraska. But, things still aren't great, and I know others have had problems still. I'm still trying to catch up on everything from 2003 (waiting on preorders from Kebco). I have noticed however that even if stores don't have the latest figures, the old ones have at least been cleared out (there's usually almost nothing there period, at least for basic figures). Anyways, long story short, do you think things will clear up towards the end of this year and early next year? I don't know about everyone else, but really the basic figures have been the biggest problems around here. I have seen the Luke/Sidious/Obi Wan Unleashed wave a few times, the Council Scenes once, the 12" Han/Lando/Officer wave once, and all of the Clone Wars ships (just saw the multipacks this week too). Do you think retail will shape up in time for us to find great upcoming figures like Hoth Luke, Wampa, C-3PO, Rieekan, etc.? Good luck to all of you on your searches.
