is it really hasblo or is it a retailers distribution problem?? I see the online stores are getting the cases - even though the assortment ratios suck - that is why the charge so much for single figures as they will be stuck with the peg warmers.  I blame both! The assortments are terrible and retailers are taking their sweet time putting new product out there.. every store I go to, its the damn beyblades and now these star wars mini ball and figure games... I wonder if their entire business model is run by kids with ADHD... come on.. focus!! 

All of their toy lines are suffering.. Avengers - have not seen an entire case characters on the pegs - just Thor, Hulk and Capt  America in 20 different costumes... Thank goodness for the guys that return their figures they don't want from their online purchases, that adds some variety to the lack of figures at the stores.

Went shopping around today and still didn't find anything new. :banghead: :fumingmad:
Now Hasblo is raising the prices up another $1. What the F@*# are they doing to us.
I am not getting doubles anymore either.

Everyone on amazon.com they're selling Darth Malgus for 12.99 for the next 22 hrs. Get one while you can cause its obvious we're not finding him in stores anytime soon... I just bought one for me so I'm very happy for now :)

Clicked the link. Saw 21.95. Still better than the 48 I saw it for a couple weeks ago.

Scored FINALLY 3 figs from this wave today at Toys R Us. They were by 1 get one 40% off so I scored good. I got CW Anakin,Hoth Luke & Ep IV Darth Vader! Darth Malgus & Imperial Navy Commander were there but my friend got those 2. and I have Malgus coming my way from amazon for 12 bucks free ship so I'm happy cause both of us have a Malgus. I hope that since I found this wave many of you guys can too soon. If I find more I'll keep you guys posted!

Well I finally have Darth Malgus in my collection! Gotta say that deal on amazon is definitely worth checking out everyday!
Heres a pic of my Malgus:

I recently picked up Evazan and Kintaba at HEB (a large chain of grocery stores in central Texas).  Glad to have the figures, but it does underscore the poor selection/stocking at Target, Walmart & (especially) Toys R Us.

I broke down and ordered tarkin, nikto and hoth luke from amazon; total cost after tax (in Texas) is $38.21.  If this is the premium I have to pay to get vintage collection figures, I won't be buying prequel or expanded universe figures, which I had tepid interest in at best.

Granted a roughly $1.75 per figure premium isn't a whole lot and for all I know may be how much I spend in gas finding particular figures in the first place, but its the principle of the thing dammit - after all, I'm putting my purchases at the mercy of some random stock person at Amazon which gives me slightly more anxiety than how a random checkout clerk at Walmart might man-handle my selections.

*fingers crossed that they come in decent shape*

Good luck with that. Keep us updated with the condition of how the figures arrive in ok.

Good luck with that. Keep us updated with the condition of how the figures arrive in ok.

Got Tarkin and Nikto in the mail today.  In a sturdy amazon.com box that fits two figures and came with "inflated" bubble wrap to keep the figures from shifting around too much. 

However, I had actually cancelled my order after I saw this post...

So my cancellation only took hold for my hoth luke.  As luck would have it, the grand total (at the time I order them) for Tarkin and Nikto came to a grand total of $24.99...a full penny short of getting free shipping  :doh:

I'm going to keep the figs and call it a life lesson in patience.  Maybe I got lucky, but I think this is a worthwhile avenue for pursuing carded figures.

Amazon has crushed every Non-SW item I've ever gotten from them & scared to order SW?
I have seen the complete waves for decent prices & free shipping?

I would like to publically THANK Hasbro for making me got thru this crap to collect their crap?!
