We are going to Disneyworld...

I only have one Star Tours fig that I OVERPAID for at a local show, so I'll probably pick one or two up just to say that I got one.

This is a full on trip for my Daughter, so I'll hit the Star Wars stuff if I have a chance, but I don't think she is going to want to ride Star Tours...

The Star Tours figures are $10 at Disney,  I am not sure how much you overpaid.

While you are here, visit the Once Upon a Toy store @ Downtown Disney. You AND your daughter will enjoy. ;D

Is it safe to say that Star Tours Wave 4 is dead or has anyone heard anything more about the possibility of these figures being available at SW Weekends this month?   :-\

Nope.

Zero.  Zip.  Zilch.  Nada.

But somewhere out there someone's got their mitts on some very nice wave 4 sales samples...

Since SW Weekends have started and we haven't seen or heard anything, I'm going to assume that the new ST Droids were a no show for the event...  :(

 I'm not terribly upset personally.  Wave 4 was weak at best...  Those initial figures had some winners in there though.  The WEG1618 droid is among my fav droids of all-time in the modern line I think. 

The DLX one is nice too...  I'm not fond of a couple, and for price they were all a let-down on some level, but there was quality in there.  I was always a little astonished how the figures seemed superior (at the time) in some ways to basic line figures.

Just wish they were cheap enough to amass a nice lot of extras.   :-\

Agreed - Wave 4 was the weakest set to date (Wave 3 wasn't much better considering that the Heli-bird thing was lame and the G2-9T was a minimal variant on G2-4T)

They really should have stopped after Wave 2.

Do things sell at the Star Tours shops and Once Upon a Toy? I thought they did well - I mean if you go back in this thread to January, the only Star Tours figures left were Wave 3 and Captain Rex - personally keeping Captain Rex IN STOCK is a smart move simply because he's the most noticeable droid of all.

Are these shops selling the ROTS figures now? Perhaps they're waiting for that to die-down abit. Perhaps they're waiting for Hasbro to package them on ROTS style cards or perhaps they are on hold pending the supposed updating that GL wants to do to Star Tours to incorporate the locals seen in the PT as well as the OT.

I agree with what Matt said all the way back in November - if they are indeed cancelled for good never to be available for purchase that will make me feel like there is a small (albeit midly insignificant) piece of my collection that is incomplete. This feeling is even further enhanced by the fact that someone out there got them on eBay for what would seem to be (in hindsight) a steal.

Sadly, i was really looking forward to wave 4. I wish i would have gone after the ones on ebay that time. Damn hindsight being 20/20

Hooray!  They are finally here!

Since they are on OTC cards, you now need to go HERE to continue the Star Tours Wave 4 Talk!
