E-tailers such as EE will be taking pre-orders for ROTS.  They have it alittle tougher though than the brick & mortar stores.   They must abide by the April 2 street date or suffer the wrath from Hasbro.

You can check out what EE has to say about pre-orders here Galactic Hunter/EE pre-order article.

The best thing is EE will be concentrating on later waves/collection 2 figs.  I know I will be placing my orders, so I don't have to deal with finding the later htf waves.  :)

I will buy all the wave 1 figures on midnight madness and save the hastle of finding wave 2+ by just preordering cases at EE.
All hail, the king of the typos!

EE Super Section

I preordered Coll 1 Wave 4 and 5 and Coll 2 Wave 4, plenty of stuff I wanted duplicates of so I'm happy. 

One bad thing is the crazy Rev case assortments, each wave has like 4 of them :-[

Also of note is that most assortments are shipping through August.  This means there is bound to be lots of planned goodness this fall :)

I tried last night to place my orders, but they wouldn't go through until this morning.  This is what I pre-ordered:

SW Episode III Deluxe Figures Wave 2
HS85174C1 SW Episode III Collection 2, Wave 3, Rev. 1 
HS85173D SW Episode III Collection 1, Wave 4 
HS85173E SW Episode III Collection 1, Wave 5 
HS85174D SW Episode III Collection 2, Wave 4 
HS85413 Star Wars 500th Figure - Darth Vader 

Was hoping they would have Pilot Obi (Red Leader) Wave for pre-order but no dice.

It nice to see Clone Troopers pretty much shipping in almost all the case assortments.

Now, I can just concentrate on finding army builders at retail. :)

And now, you can no longer order from EE.  Weird...my order says processing still.  They must have activated for a while and then shut it down
