I placed an order for a few, then saw after the order processed that the ship date wasn't until late next week. Fat chance they'll be there then, and to cancel one or two would result in their hefty shipping charges. I cancelled the order. If I find 'em, I find 'em.

Thanks Battle Droid. I ordered 4-Lom, McQuarrie Rebel, Han Torture, Lando Smuggler. Four figures is right over $25.00 which qualifies for Super-Saver free shipping. Sweet!

I hate amazon now. Since they started letting everyone and their brother sell things on their site it's become really hard to navigate and find exactly what you want.

I wonder where all the McQuarrie snowtroopers that should have been in this wave are?

El Chuxter
09-19-2007, 02:19 PM
If you chose super-saver shipping, you may not get these. They won't ship for about a week, and amazon.com is notorious for not actually fulfilling orders until just before they ship. Meaning you can order something that's in stock, it will be scheduled to ship a week later, and, if it sells out during that time, you may get it very late or not at all.

Fat chance they'll be there then, and to cancel one or two would result in their hefty shipping charges. I cancelled the order. If I find 'em, I find 'em.Hmm, my order date says it's going to ship tomorrow. I didn't do super-saver though as I didn't order enough to make it work, but $4.67 for shipping is a damn good price compared to the gas and sales tax I'd pay getting them at the store.


4-LOM and the General are sold out, 2 Lando's left.4-LOM came back in stock (Amazon.com stock, not some marketplace stock) so I was able to order it.

It's funny: hunting online has almost become the new brick & mortar hunting. I would say I peruse online stores in the same way I used to drive to physical ones. Loading a new page ain't quite as fun as turning an aisle corner and seeing a full peg, but hey...

Amazon actually seems to have some pretty decent finds in general; I did a "Star Wars Basic Figure" search under Toys & Games and it returned THESE (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_1/002-5960487-2538423?ie=UTF8&rs=165793011&keywords=Star%20Wars%20Basic%20Figure%20&rh=n%3A165793011%2Ck%3AStar%20Wars%20Basic%20Figur e%20&page=1) results. Not bad. Some good finds there.

In theory, Amazon has the chance to be like a non-auction (i.e. non scalper) version of Ebay; especially in regards to shipping.

You're not really missing much at all, Chux. Out of all the TAC waves, this one is the weakest. It's not that the figures are terrible. It's just that after great stuff like CZ-4 and Hermi Odle, these are kind of "meh". However, it is a nice feeling to be caught up until Wave 7, which I'm sure is at least a month away (maybe a month and a half). Hasbro can't keep cranking them out consistently week after week.

El Chuxter
09-28-2007, 11:44 AM
This (http://tinyurl.com/25bsqp) kinda makes you wonder about amazon.com.

Yes, it is direct from amazon. It doesn't say on the main page for some reason, but it's eligible for super-saver shipping. I just want to know where the hell they got a list price of $17.95, and why their "discounted" price is still double retail.

Blue2th
09-28-2007, 01:38 PM
I think that Amazon is still associated with alot of secondary market sellers, hence the mark-up. I know when TRU was with Amazon they had alot of SW stuff for sale from Brian's Toys. They may still be affiliated, or Brian's stayed with Amazon, I'm not sure.

Anyways got a notice that my order shipped, so I'm happy. Let's see what kinda condition the cards are in. I only ordered one of each, in case one or more has to be opened. Which is usually the case with the shipping monkeys.

El Chuxter
09-28-2007, 01:51 PM
If it were being sold by a third-party, though, it would say so in the "Shipped by" field, even if it were Brian's Toys. It also wouldn't qualify for free shipping.

JediTricks
09-28-2007, 03:31 PM
Yeah, that's a very weird one. Kinda shady, it is from Amazon directly, you can see it in the Marketplace link on that page. I don't like buying toys from Amazon in general, they have weirdness about their behavior.

I just found this wave a Wal Mart this morning. I was told they received 25+ cases, mostly wave 4, but a few of wave six. Not the best wave but at least I'm up to date and I just started the third page of the coin album for the basic 60:thumbsup:.

I also managed to pick up 9 more UGHs I now have 9 carded and 6 loose:D. I'm kinda hoping by the end of the week I'll have a loose and carded set.

I got two McSnowtroopers last night at Wal-Mart. I'm not interested in the other figures.

Of course, to get them I had to go through an opened box on a pallet. I ended up angering a tough looking woman stocking stuff. She took the stuff I was hanging on a peg and put it back in the box. But I got to keep the McSnowies.

I still have not found there Hero Starkiller figure or most of wave 5.

I found this wave today at Wal-Mart. I really like the snowtrooper. 4-Lom and the General Mcquarrie are good figures. The Lando and Han Solo are not very good figures. The heads on both of these figures just stick way to far up from their necks. Lando's head seems a little oversized for the body.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
10-04-2007, 03:22 PM
I got the entire wave last night along with what I still needed from wave 4 and a few of Legends wave 3. I won't be opening them for several weeks, though, as I don't have enough money for them right now and they'll have to wait until my birthday. :D

I envy that installment plan you have, JJL!

I found the entire wave at WM yesterday as well, along with CZ-4. The Snowtrooper is by far the best of the bunch. Still need to find Starkiller and I'll be caught up.

I think I've purchased more SW figures in the last month or so just from waves 4, 5, & 6 than I have all year. I'll probably get most of Wave 7 too. Looking forward to giving my wallet a rest with wave 8.

I know how you feel. This week alone has been a killer.
Sun= 6 figures
Mon.=28 figures
Tues. only 3 figures
Wen= 10figures.

I just need 3 more UGHs and I'll be caught up.

AmanaMatt, is that a giant MOUSE DROID behind your 4-LOMs and 3POs?

Is it? :love:

Where do you live? :crazed:

In other news, General McQuarrie, 4-LOM, Han Torture, Lando Smuggler were all brand new, but haven't sold out at my Wal-Mart and it's on to the 2nd night.

In addition, there are some Umpass-Stays, Elis Helrots, Myooms, and Luke Jedis on the pegs that have remained there.

I have a friend that stocks and he said they didn't have enough room to put all the figures out, even with the endcap he made (5 rows of 4 figure columns), so some of the cases (wave 6 probably) were moved into a storage trailer.

The problem is, other store merchandise goes into the trailer and could block access to the SW figure cases for months (this happened with the Selucami Speederbike Packs). Thus the inventory will show figures in stock, but they will not be accessable to customers or even employees. When they get brought out, the cases might be out of date, and wave 7 or 8 might be shipping (to Target or TRU for example), thus changing which store becomes the place to get the latest figures.

I got CZ-4 btw. Flimsy, rubbery figure. He's very articulated, but nothing to write home about. Eventually, he might be a seriuos pegwarmer. He's just hot right now because they didn't pack him in the wave 4 case when they started the gold coins.

Plus if you move any of his limbs to pose him, you see all the areas that didn't get paint. It's like his underwear is showing.
I'm already seeing this one along with Han Torture and Ellis Helrot starting to warm the pegs.

Found the wave today at Wal-Mart, though I'm not quite happy about it. I've only the Cantina aliens and the drummer for wave 4, wave 5 hasn't shown up, and wave 3 was barely here (the Jawa may as well be a McQuarrie figure, it's as scarce as them around here).

Though, at least I was able to grab a McQuarrie Snowtrooper, haven't seen any UGH though. Of the wave, I only saw Lando, McQ Snowtrooper, Gen. McQuarrie, Han and 4-Lom.

If you are finding wave 6 at Wal Mart, keep checking. All the ones I go to have been getting large shippments of SW figures. All the cases I've seen are for Wave 4,5 & 6, and at least 3 different Legens waves. The few that I go to have a Pallet full of mostly SW figs, and have been putting out a few cases a day.

Nope, CZ-4 was in wave 4. Waves 4, 5, and 6 are all shipping simulteneously so that's likely where the confusion came from.

I received my Wave 6 this weekend from Brian's Toys (already customized the Han into a true Han Bespin) and MAN I love the Concept Snowtrooper. Might be my favorite of the year. The rifle alone is awesome. This is the one McQuarrie I might need more then two of.

Was also up in British Columbia this weekend and scored two UGHs -- a McChewie and an Airborne Clone. They come on the "generic" Canadian backer card, but I kind of like the look. Found them way out in the boonies of West Van at a Pharmasave.

I found Wave 6 at Wal-Mart in Hattiesburg, MS, this afternoon. Passed on Han & Pharl. LOVE Lando & 4-LOM. Picked up a McSnowie, too, to add to my carded Concept figure collection.

I suggest to anyone who's on the fence about buying 4-LOM to just do it already. It's a great resculpt, a necessary one. The detail and articulation are well above what's needed for this obscure bounty hunter, pretty much on par with the Saga Dengar.

AmanaMatt
10-08-2007, 11:04 PM
I agree with that about 4 lom - I tried to custom the arms on mine with an extra R3P0, but I screwed it up. Still, it is a real nice fig overall!

10-09-2007, 11:07 AM
I returned the 4-LOM I bought. I usually avoid resculpts these days (and this one really is unnecessary) but I bought one while experiencing a rush after finding wave six.

I noticed that my Torture Rack Han has white unpainted hips so I'm holding off opening that one. Hopefully Hasbro will put out a corrected repaint.

Not completely happy with the upturned eyes on my Lando but the McQuarrie likeness is pretty decent.

The McSnowtrooper is excellent.

Found Wave 6 along with Wave 5 at WM last week. I had actually found just some of wave 5, and was looking for the rest of them, when I spotted a Han and two Landos on the top peg. Looked around and could only find a 4-LOM to go with them, so I ended up ordering Gen. McQuarrie and the McSnowtrooper from amazon. Went back to WM the next morning looking for GI Joe figs, and there were the two I had just ordered sitting on the pegs! Managed to cancel the McQuarrie (so I didn't overpay there), but the amazon marketplace store I ordered the trooper from stuck it in the mail on a Saturday evening, so it was too late to cancel on Sunday morning. Saved a little money by not canceling the set from EE with the extra Stormtrooper, but still lost out thanks to superfast shipping, the only time I would ever complain about that.

Ji'dai
10-11-2007, 08:05 PM
Damn. And here I feel a SA resculpt of a ten year old POTF2 figure is pretty much Badass! I don't feel this this figure really warrants a resculpt, plus the fragility/breakage and gimp leg problems detract from the final result. The articulation is wasted since he's pretty much in a neutral stance for the entire scene he's in. If you're going to do some EU diorama with the new version maybe you could put him in an action pose. But protocol droids in the OT had very stiff-jointed locomotion.

I can't deny that the shorter leg is an issue with this figure. But as far as articulation, who wouldn't want a figure with 14 points of articulation vs. one with 6? And action figures shouldn't be limited in their poses to what we saw them do onscreen (see the VTAC Bossk -- a figure with an amazing range of motion far beyond just standing there). It lacks the wide-leg stance of the POTF2 issue, and doesn't look like it's been left lying in red clay for a while; and if anything, the TAC sculpt does a much better job of suggesting 4-LOM's protocol droid origins than does the POTF2 one.

BTW, has anyone noticed that his shoulder armor swivels independently of his arms, to allow for slightly greater range of motion?

Agreed, the point of action figures is not to just endlessly recreate the movie ad nauseum, it's to allow kids to expand upon the films using their imaginations.

I doubt many kids would even know who 4-LOM is (or any of the other bounty hunters outside the Fett family, for that matter). I have a feeling this resculpt will just end up pegwarming badly. At least until some unsuspecting grandparents buy them up shortly before christmas.

I noticed an endcap at Wal-Mart today and there were at least a couple Landos. Not sure how long that endcap had been there. Maybe I missed another chance at getting extra concept figures. They did have a couple gold coin figures, the first time I had seen that. I didn't see anything else from wave 6 though.

Have I mentioned how underwhelmed I am with this wave. The torture rack itself is a very cool accessory. The only figure I really like from the wave if the McFrosty.

I forgot I had already seen Lando until I just read my post above. I finally saw the rest of the wave at Wal-Mart today, except for the concept Snowtrooper. I have this wave on order from EE, so I didn't get anything.
