Any word as to when the preview figures are going to hit the stores? The stores in my area are slow in getting new merchandise.

Late March, the exact date slips my mind.

That's the date that Hasbro announced, as well as the date printed on the cases. I guess they wanna have them on the shelf for the early saturday morning shoppers.

Why not! It's just an odd manoeuvre for the Trade Feder- I mean, Hasbro! ;)

I'll mark March 16 in my calendar and hit the stores in my area regardless!

In my area Saturday is a better day to find new stuff than others.

Does anyone know if the preview figure boxes are going to say not for sell before March 16???

As far as I know, Hasbro are enforcing the same release date rules for the preview figures as with the rest of the AOTC line, so no pre-March 16th release!

Its not all bad they come out on a Saturday.It just means I
have to drag my lazy butt out of bed and go to the store early
before all the little kids are awake.

They sleep on Saturdays? I guess there is a little hope, plus don't forget, alot of them would probably rather watch cartoons when they get up. :D

Anyone else get the feeling this is gonna be like Luke doing the trench run with Vader right behind him? :D

Well, I don't think Wal-Mart will be doing the mid-night madness for PREVIEW figures. But I will be there before mid-night. They stock in the morning so it looks like I will be camping out in the toy aisle for the night. hehehe

Consider it an embargo, noone gets any until I get my set!:D :D :D :D :D

How do you think the Trad...Hasbro will deal with this?

Possibly dispatch 2 Jedi to help free the tiny planet of...Wal-Mart.

At least you guys will get them!!! I'm stuck and Germany and who knows if my post exchange will ever get anymore SW stuff! They got soooo burnt on EP1 and I doubt if they will bite off on it again. Woe is me!:(

The force is slow with this one....
