Do you have any 24 hour Super WM's down there? Mine was a Super that got all those cases; they seem to move product faster. So, maybe a tip to try one of those at night to get maybe a large shipment.

In case you haven't been watching the front page, we've been posting high-res loose and carded photos of this wave over the last week.  Check out the pictures and drool if you haven't been lucky enough to find these guys yet!   ;)

I've been reading a lot of folks kind of "tripping" out because they haven't found the Geo wave, or specifically the U. Trooper and Scorch. I think it's kind of early to be worried that you haven't found them yet. The Geo wave really wasn't slated to hit retail until March. I think the early finds have fed this frenetic frenzy of "I may never see these so I guess I'll have to order a case." I say just be cool, if you don't find what you need from the Geo wave by April then maybe start worrying. But even then, the U. Trooper and Scorch are mixed in other waves/cases, so there is really no reason to worry at all. I think the only fig from the Geo wave that isn't mixed with the other waves/cases is Sun Fac (I think). I know this has been said before, but be patient and this stuff will be everywhere.

You may be right, Kill_Solo. But it's NEVER too early to for some to start crying about how unfair life is.  ;D

So called "greed" is an often-spoke of deadly sin around here, but I see envy as just (if not more) prevalent. And twice as ugly.

It's a little early to be in a panic, no doubt...  However I never saw a 41st Shocktrooper, only saw the black Clone Pilot 2 or 3 times as I recall, and the final 12 I'd have missed completely on most if not for K-Mart unloading a ton on Black Friday and on the cheap...  And even then they went fast, of course.

Ordering a case isn't always a bad idea then if you're concerned on something...  It's pretty obvious Scorch and the Utapau Trooper are going to be in big demand...  The real question is now whether or not Hasbro is going to MEET that demand.  It's so early in the year and SO much crap has already shipped...  There's a lot of year left for things to reship, but like last year there's some things that just didn't ship heavily to some areas or it was gobbled up really fast...  Sometimes getting your case order in early isn't such a bad idea, especially if you find a ration mix that fits your collecting goals and such.

Personally, I haven't seen that all Clone Trooper/Scorch case ratio yet.  ;)
