It certainly does seem a little strange.  I've read in another forum that someone placed an order with Disney DelivEARS, and it went through.  Not so when I called.   Strange.  You guys might want to consider calling to see if you get a different response than I did.

If I recall correctly, this is rather similar to what happened the first time around, when the initial 2 Star Tours droids were first available.  People were getting all kinds of different stories from DD on whether or not they could order the figures from them, when they'd be in, when they'd be delivered, etc...  It was a real big fiasco actually!  I think it's one of those situations where it all depends on who you talk to - some people are in the know and are understanding the situation and product, and other telephone operators are just absolutely clueless...  No idea, but it sure seems pretty chaotic and disorganized at DD.

Guess they've never dealt with the rabidness of the average Star Wars collector before!   :D

Oy...  Hey everybody (on my pre-order list), it just dawned on me that if the SK-Z38 (bird) droid is indeed not going to be included in the initial Wave 3 assortments for a little while, whereas the G2 and R5 droids are being released earlier (as in NOW), you all need to let me know if you'd like for me to hold off on shipping your figures 'til I can get all THREE of them, or if you'd rather have TWO now, and have me send another ONE later on (boy, that was a helluva run-on sentence).

It's a difference of about $4.50 in shipping really, but I know some of you prefer consolidated shipping to save a little coin, so shoot me a PM, e-mail, or reply here to LMK what you'd like me to do if I'm only able to get the first 2 droids for a while!  Thanks!   :-*

Hey everybody (on my pre-order list)[/b][/color], it just dawned on me that if the SK-Z38 (bird) droid is indeed not going to be included in the initial Wave 3 assortments for a little while, whereas the G2 and R5 droids are being released earlier (as in NOW), you all need to let me know if you'd like for me to hold off on shipping your figures 'til I can get all THREE of them, or if you'd rather have TWO now, and have me send another ONE later on (boy, that was a helluva run-on sentence).

How long do you think it will be before Hasbro releases that bird figure?  If it's over a span of a couple months than I want you to just ship my two figs right away.  If it's less than one month than I can easily wait for all three to ship out together.

I don't know if I'm all that thrilled about them being on blue cards.  These figs will not look right on a person's wall with the POTJ carded Star Tour figures.  Six figs will be green, three will be blue... I don't like it at all.  But what can I do?  I want 'em so I guess I'm going to have to make a sacrifice here, huh?

Matt, count me in bud on wanting all three of the figures.I can wait till the third one comes out and then just ship all at once if that is ok.Either way just let me know.

Any idea how much the Starspeeder 3000 costs? I think I want that as well. ;D

With the carded images of the first two droids finally surfacing (see main page), we can finally put one of our debates to rest regarding why (or how) R5-D4 is in this line.  The answer is:  HE'S NOT (assuming droids are a "he").  Disney has apparently decided to change this droid's name to R5-D2.  Glad to see it actually.  I'd rather keep the ST droid line here as "EU", and not have them intermingling in any way with the droids we actually saw on the screen in the Saga.

Also, I'm copying the droid order list of all you guys I'm going to be buying these figures for, from back on page 2 in this thread right here.  Mike, I already had you on there buddy!   ;)

dustrho - Wave 3 MOMC, Starspeeder 3000 MOMC
DSJ - Wave 3 MOMC  (ship all together)
CyberScout - Wave 3 MOMC, plus (maybe) a Starspeeder  (ship all together)
chuckles - Wave 3 MOMC, Starspeeder MOMC
obi-dad - R4-M9, R3-D3 & R5-D2 (non-mint)
OCB - two R5-D2's (non-mint)
Jesse James - Wave 3 + 1 extra R5-D2 (all non-mint)
BigDumbWookiee - 2 sets of Wave 3 (1 MOMC, 1 non-mint), 2 Starspeeder 3000's  (ship all together)
CHEWIE - two R5-D2's (1 MOMC, 1 non-mint)
Boba Binks - 2 sets of Wave 3 (1 MOMC, 1 non-mint), 1 Starspeeder 3000  (ship all together)
Membraneman - two R5-D2's (1 MOMC, 1 non-mint)
Daigo-Bah - R3-D3 & R5-D2 (pref. MOMC)

And Mike, the Starspeeder 3000 is going for $20.  But as a reminder, it's not in scale with the 4" line though - more like Action Fleet - if that matters at all...

Hey MAC,

Non-mint's fine yeah...  And if a 2nd R5 isn't a problem I'd probably take one as I wouldn't mind having his head for casting it.

I would love to get one of these, so when these become available Matt hook me up with one.  THANKS!

I tried ordering the R5 droid today on the phone, and they told me that they couldn't send it unless they had extras in a month of so...

So, if it's not too late JediMAC, I'd like to get two of them, and can send you money this week.  If it is too late, I totally understand.

 :P

Not too late at all CHEWIE!  Disneyland (where I get them) doesn't even have them out here yet, so you haven't missed anything...  So two R5-D2s for you, right?  Is card condition an issue at all for you, or will you be opening both up (as I assume)?  For two figures, it'll cost $20 + $1.55 tax + about $4-5 for shipping.  So about $26.  Cool?  Hopefully Disneyland will have some stock in this upcoming weekend when I head down there.  I'll keep ya' posted!

I will definitely be opening one up, and would like to keep one carded if possible.  If they aren't MOMC though, I guess I could open them both.  I am sure I could live with that. ;)

I really appreciate it.  Want to send me a personal message with your address so I can send you some money?

I just tried to called 1(407)363-6200 to place an order for X2 of each of the wave three of the Star Tours figures and X1 of the Star Speeder 3000.
Disney IS NOT TAKING ANY PHONE ORDERS for the new Star Wars - Star Tours toys. I even tried to call 1-800-3624533 in Cali and was told the same thing.

Please (anyone) e-mail me if you are making the trip to Florida to get the toys. I will give you money to pick up my set.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com
