Odds are the Jedi asst will be the toughest to find.  It is one looking set IMO.  That Chewie alone makes it worth it to.  Something about the Stormtrooper seems out of place though.  The poseability looks something like the 12" Stormie.  Hope im wrong on that one.

Oh man, the hunt is back on.  To be honest, this is the wave that I'm most worried about finding (as many of us probably are).  Let's hope they pop up in abundance near everyone soon!

What the?!?

Some places haven't even seen the ESB wave and now we're on RotJ?  Where did they find them, Target/TRU/Wally?

This is one I hope e-tail doesn't get the shaft on like they seemed to have happened on the latest case...bastards at Hasbro!

I wonder what percentage of business Hasbro does is with e-tail?

You know, I wouldn't worry about these.  These are going to ship through Christmas, right?  I have a feeling a lot of us are going to clean up on these at clearance prices after the new year.

I second that Dave.  I've found NONE of the ESB yet.  A friend in the area got me Lando and Vader on Friday though, so that's a start...  Still need doubles of them though, and 3PO and Yoda I've not got at all.

I wanted 5 Stormtroopers...  Things aren't shaping up well for that. :(

That's crap, the ESB haven't even shown their hides round these parts yet! And now ROTJ is already out?

Damn Hasbro and their messed up shipping...

I've been checking my EE order with fear every day, dreading a shift in estimated arrival, and it's still holding fast to September (though pre-sold out apparently). Hopefully they'll not get screwed, because I have zero confidence in tracking down either Fett or the Stormtrooper. Then again, the only thing Hasbro seems to be doing with any degree of regularity at the moment is screwing e-tailers.

Mesa AZ to be exact, my new casa ;D

Also, as a point of interest the 2.5 wave has been hitting TRU hard, I saw 5-6 cases with Lando and C3P0 at my local TRU getting stocked in the PM.

Well, Jesse, you and I live on the East coast (or what I like to call the Least coast when it comes to Star Wars toys) and will probably have to wait like another month for these to show up here. They always seem to hit the West coast first.

As for ESB, I found Vader and Yoda 1 time at a TRU. That was it. Never saw them again (at least not yet) and have not seen Lando or 3P0 at all, anywhere. Not even at the scalper toy shows. And that's odd. Those guys always have the new **** for 4x the retail on their tables as soon as it hits. Went to one last weekend, and saw nada. Come to think of it, I didn't even see Vader or Yoda VOTC either.

I agree...  However I did find some ESB remnants last night finally so part of me has some hope, but in the end we do get the shaft out here for product.

Its always the last to show here (well, generally), and not in the quantities others seem to get. :)

Trickle-down effect from the west to east...  And it really dissipates by the time it gets here.  *sigh*

Dave,

Nice job on the review.  I am finally excited to see the DVD's and you review helped.

BTW, how did you become a Seahawk fan way out there in Jersey?  Let me guess you like Sir MIx A Lot too ;D?
