If stuff really does take the longest time to reach the East Coast of the US, it must take forever to reach southern Connecticut. Today, I have finally found the Luminara Undulli I have sought since May, shortly after AOTC hit theaters. I saw a Taun We once in May but never again. I have yet to see Yoda and Dooku at a store.

The inner packaging of the blisters is getting very very thin and weak but i guess that's so you can actually get the things out of the blister if you feel so inclined as I invariably do.
Can't say as I've noticed any difference in the outer blister though but I usually have the thing opened up before I even stop to look at the packaging.
The cards seem a little thinner and more bendy to me lately. The way it bends and tears when you take the blister off seems a lot more pronounced than the old cards of POTJ, EP1 and POTF2.

Yes, I've noticed a slight weakness in the packaging too, but given the choice between them concentrating on the figure or the card, I'd definately rather they concentrate on the figure. I dont (And wont ever) have the new Ki-Adi, but the Teemto is phenomenal. They did a great job on this one. :)

From sources, I think the Padme and the Elphant will be out sometime later in the middle or end of the month...

Oh yea I think the new Ki Adi Rocks... If what everyone is saying is true then i rather hasbro concentrate on the firgure rather than the sculpt... :)

Cheers :)

Hango Fett- Nah, i don't believe so dude. I don't think the other 3 hit till the end of this month/early Aug or so. I found a guy here in cols who has all the new stuff pretty much and he won't have it till next weekend. dude has "hook ups" everywhere!! He said he'd score some of the Cantina Exclusives when they hit, when are they supposed to hit anyway??!?

Well even Hasbro's dates aren't right it has Anakin Tatooine Attack listed as being released in August/Septmeber, when it is already out.

I also don't understand the two months thing. Hasbro should know when they are releasing the figure, who else would?

Beast

Yes, but the figures hit in late July, where as they were scheduled for a Auguest release. All the figures usually hit earlier then scheduled, because Hasbro has to ship them out, so that they start reaching stores around the release month. The two month thing, is the optimal time for finding the figure. Some areas get figures way later then others. :)

I'm sorry Jar Jar but the figs started being released in the middle of the month.

But you listed the release date not the optimal time for finding the figure date.

Beast

Yes, but that is the release date. But just like everything that is scheduled to start being found at a certain time, it has to actually ship to the stores earlier then that.

But unlike magazines and DVD's that ship early, action figurs don't come with a in stone release date. So while a figure is scheduled for a August release, stores put out the figures, as soon as they get them. :)

so then why does Hasbro have the double month?

And thanks for returning to the JJB avatar, that other guy/gal was really creeping me out.

Beast
07-28-2002, 12:22 AM
Because not all stores get the figures at the same time. That is just a general release date. It's still a new release, until the next wave gets released, so that's why they list them as double months. :)

Well I think that Hasbro give the double dates because they don't know when they are releasing them.

Not at all, because the Star Wars figures that did have a "in stone" release date, the ones that came out on April 23rd were listed as an April/May release. :)
