Wonder how long they will offer this before they are asked to remove it. Planet Action Figure had the same wave up for pre-order 4-5 weeks ago, no names just "Wave 17" set of 4. And Hasbro requested that they remove them for sale, as there would be no pre-sales of the preview assortment either.

Here is the news from the front page of their site, about Hasbro coming to call about them pre-selling wave 17.

Very strict rule from Hasbro...NO retailers are permitted to take Presells for any Episode II products. If we do, Hasbro can terminate our account. We can offer them to you as In Stock item when our shipments come in. Our apologies but we were forced to void the presell orders for this assortment.
Unless figuresource.com is either a foreign site, or gets their figures from a different source other then direct from Hasbro, expect them to also have to do the same thing, if Hasbro sniffs them out.

Atleast on the preview assortment, if you can pre-order it, do it. Due to the fact it's technically the last line of POTJ, it's going to probably be a pain to find. Teebo, BoShek, and R4-M9 will be tougher because they are OT figures...but don't think that the E2 preview figures are going to be ultra easy to find.

As for the E2 figure lines, agreed. Wait til they hit the stores. You'll pay alot less, and none of the figures other then army builders are going to be hard to find. Dont expect them to be flooding the toy aisles in 2 months though. From what I understand Hasbro is going to include new figures in cases often, so there wont be any reason for the shelves to be swamped.
