I've checked that VOTC Stormie listing five times since 3:00 PM CST, and it's been 'out-of-stock' every time.

That's weird.

They must be adding them off and on, because I have my order from 5:38 logged on my computer and I scored two ???

Yeah, sounds like something they'd do, after I just ordered $50 worth of swag from them today. ;) ::)

Only Lando and Vader at the moment.

Lando and Vader still available.

Only place I've seen any other new VOTC is Brian's Scalpers, and they want $30 a figure. ::)

My cases should be here tomorrow...  I am very excited to have those RotJ figures!

I should have some extras too once they arrive, so keep your eyes peeled on the Classified/trade section, I'll probably post a new list tomorrow night if you are still looking for Vader/Lando/Fett/Yoda...

My Boba Fett arrived via the mail on Saturday afternoon, and that was a nice surprise.  According to Amazon, it wasn't scheduled for delivery until about Wednesday of this week, but got here earlier.  Chewbacca should be here today or tomorrow, and then the VOTC voyage is complete.  Hopefully they will revisit this concept in the future though.  Can't wait to take a look at the wookiee, and wouldn't mind getting a second of that one either.  Still nothing new in the stores this weekend.  Target has nothing VOTC-wise, and TRU and Wal-Mart are still swimming in the ANH wave.  Wal-Mart has actually started to thin their ranks a little though, someone must finally be picking them up.  Otherwise, there is no sign of the ROTJ, or ESB for that matter, waves in town...anywhere.

Although the shipping makes them a bit expensive, Wal-mart.com has the ROTJ wave in stock for $9.83 each.  I'd like to get an extra Chewie, but not for $15 :).

Thanks for the tip, Mosnab!!!

Finally I'll have a Chewbacca...and I ordered another Fett for good measure. I may have to make a custom with that one!  ;D

Dang. The Stormtrooper is still in stock, but I don't want to pay the shipping. ::)

Nice Chewbacca review over at Star Wars Action Figure Reviews if you want to check it out.  I can't wait to get this figure, looks like one of the best figures we've ever seen, and definitely the best Chewie.  Some good pics at the review, I enjoyed this one, it looks like scale has definitely changed since the POTF2 days:

Jeez! It almost looks like Chewbacca and his family from the Holiday Special...

I love this one!

The only thing that bugs me is his hair...that's not a ESB Chewie :P

Otherwise this is a great figure no doubt, my favorite of the VOTC line
