It's a funny story actually.

I was searching around for other SW figure E-Tailers, when I saw a thread that mentioned OMGCNFO. I decided to try them, and was shocked when they had VOTC Boba listed as In Stock. I looked for Chewie, but didn't see him. I didn't see the Stormie at first either, then I almost had a heart attack when they had him in stock with a limit of 2. I also picked up a Lando.

So everyone, click to OMGCNFO now! Here's a link to save you trouble!

Here's hoping for non of the stupid shipping problems that they're so famous for.

Thanks for the info Diddley.  I got one Stormie, and now I want more.  Second time I've tried 'em - I hope this goes as well as the first time.

Not sure if this is exactly where I should put this, but I didn't want to start a new thread for it.  I went to check out a different Target yesterday for the ROTJ wave (didn't have it, by the way), but I noticed that this particular Target had their VOTC figures with "price reduced" on the pegs, so they were $5.99 each.  They only had Han, which I already have two of, so I passed...but it would be nice if you could score the newer figures at this price.  Anyways, maybe the reductions/clearances have begun.

I just wish this dang wave would get here already!!!

I've been waiting for that Chewie for too long!

Well, back to hitting 2-3 Targets a day I guess...

I agree Jeff, I'm getting a little impatient with the Chewie as well.  I'm sure it will show up eventually, but I'm getting awfully tempted to go the online or ebay route.  Trying to hold out though.  Its frustrating in a way, because I found the R2 and Stormie last Sunday morning, so I must have just missed him.  Oh well, can't complain, at least I found something new regardless.

I'm giving OMGCNFO a try. The last time I used them (about a year ago) my package was never recieved but they refunded my money. The first two times, however, were great. So I'm hoping that in that amount of time they've gotten their **** together. I'll keep you all informed!

I decided to order a couple of Stormies too, what the hay.  The two or three times I've ordered from them have been pretty decent as well!

If they had Chewie in stock, I'd be on board as well.  Doesn't look like they have him, or R2 though...nice prices for the rest of the lot though, best of luck to those of you who ordered, it sounds like they have pretty good service from what I have read.

What I still can't figure out, is how the heck did OMGCNFO get the RotJ wave first?

They have to be a small account, yet THEY got figures before KebCo, EE, NewForce, etc?  What the heck is going on at Hasbro?   >:(

I know places like BBTS and Cloud City get them from Asia direct (that's why they cost so much more), but these OMGCNFO dudes are only selling for $1 over retail. 

I'm extremely hesitent to place an order with OMGCNFO because of all the bad press I've read on them AND the fact that the number of these figures they are selling is just not adding up with what we know.  EE can't get stock until NOVEMBER, yet these dudes still have stock to sell after 2 days?

Something just doesn't add up, and I think in a couple weeks we'll see a LOT of unhappy customers here...  :-\

I wonder if they just cleaned out a bunch of Targets in their area? Oh well, I guess we'll see soon enough.

How did BBTS get theirs too?  KebCo also said they were receiving their cases this week as well

Now I see that Rick at NewForce got a small batch of one of the RotJ wave alternate cases (the one with Vader, Lando, Yoda, Fett and Stormie, but no R2 or Chewie).

What the hell is going on Hasblo!  >:(

Maybe I'll stumble into a whole vat of them at lunch today and then I'll feel all better...

My Boba Fett shipped from BBTS, so if you ordered anything from there, keep an eye on your mailboxes.

Haven't heard anything from OMGCNFO yet.

Any word from OMGCNFO yet? Does anyone know if they send out an email when they ship?
