Its 'almost' mid february, ish, sort of :D

How much longer must they make us wait, anyone else got these on pre-order? Anyone else feeling the pain of waiting :)

Share your thoughts :D

yeah, I'm going crazy with anticipation. It's only going to get worse when people start reporting that they have theirs and I can't find any :cry:
But I don't want the new slave I and I'm sure about the other one so I didn't order them, I'm just going to find thm at retail. Hopefully sooner, rather than later:crazed:

I envy you guys for being able to find them directly in the stores. But thanks to a good friend of mine i hope to have them as soon as they are released.

Theres no other option in the uk other than to order them from the states, we still don't have the last wave in main stores. God knows when they'll arrive.

11th today, after the 15th I'm going to get gradually more excited :)

I pre-ordered mine from ActionFigureExpress (http://store.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?actionfigurexpress+KQeTKC+starwaracfle1.html ). They have a really good price (for an online retailer) if you pre-order a full case. I don't wan't to take any chances with wave 4. The Republic Gunship is my favorite Star Wars vehicle ever and I want to make sure I get one. I've only seen one ship from wave 3, a Snowspeeder, on the shelves and it got me concerned.

Ordered mine from D&S, was originally going to buy from entertainment earth, till I saw the prices, complete rip off imho.

Will buy another couple of gunships and troop ships when they find their way over to these shores probably, but aslong as I have at least one set, I'm happy.

I still haven't seen the repainted Snowspeeder, so I have nary a clue. Hasbro feels they might be already out I think, but take that with a grain since Jan/Feb are terrible months for new toys due to poor sales and retailers holding their breath for Toy Fair.

I have pre-ordered mine at D&S with some MM, and Dave Roberts replies that it not be in until middle of March.

So, still one month to wait !

March :(

Or was meant to read 'might not be in till middle of march' ???

02-12-2003, 05:18 AM
to be exact : "The Deluxe will not be in until middle of March."

so, March !

D'OH !!

The 'deluxe'?

good shot jansen

i wonder why hasbro didn't show the troop trasport along with the rgs and slave I at the toy fiar sneak peek?

that prolly has something to do with why the 4th wave is not shipping til mid march now:frus:

I thought the same Jansen, but on the other hand, there wasn't much room on the shelf in the picture, so it could be any number of reasons really.

I am so bloody impatient for this wave, getting really really frustrated with waiting. I'm kinda hoping they will just ship randomly out of the blue rather than being around mid march, would be a nice suprise eh. Currently checking all the sites and my email daily :D

Though saying that, its the 17th today, and I've got a lot of work on at the moment, I reacon the next few weeks will probably go quickly anyway!

02-20-2003, 10:26 AM
Its now the 20th of february, and I'm getting even more impatient! :D

02-24-2003, 01:25 PM
Its now the 24th, and I'm still impatient! :D

02-25-2003, 03:19 AM
I just got an email from ActionFigureExpress saying my wave 4 case will be shipping in 2-3 days!

02-25-2003, 03:40 PM
Great, and I am still looking for wave 3 on retail over here in New Hampshire!

02-25-2003, 03:41 PM
Wooooooow, you sure, your not winding me up? It could be any day now then that other stores get them, oooooooh, I'm excited!

Crossing fingers, can't wait!:D

Just had a look on actionfigure express, also got what appear to be proper photos of the new packaging, so they have changed the action fleet boxes then, I much prefered the old ones myself.

Am so tempted to buy a second set and sell the extra slave one I don't want to my housemate.

I saw the new AF (waves 4 and 5) listed on R2Dtoys website (in England). 12 each. Not too bad for the UK customers if you compare to the official fan-club prices...

02-25-2003, 04:36 PM
That is quite good for uk.
