Which wave are you up to.
Over here in England I am on the Sandtrooper wave and have been since June. Normaly I get the figures on import fairly quikly but just lately I can't get anything.

The most recent wave, which I have had no success in finding, is the one with Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) & Han Solo (Death Star Escape).
It seems that the shipments are scattered about the country in pockets, but generally have not gotten an even distribution at this point.

Around here I just found the sandtrooper and not much else.

The Wal-Marts over here had the Duro wave. Emphasis on HAD.

I have everything up to and including the Duro wave. I'm waiting to see if i can get a cheap interceptor from my source but that won't be for a while and probably at the same time as I get the Shmi wave. Oh, do you include the dirty biker scout in this? I don't have one yet but i'm a lookin' to find one real soon. Got three clean ones and three sandtroopers. By the looks of things, it's gonna be an expensive winter baggin' all these goodies that's comin' out. :)

Well, my mom says I can finally take the plastic sheets off my bed if I don't drink anything after 8 o'clock. Oh, you mean as far as figures go...
All I need, except for the brand new stuff, are Lando and R2-Q5 which are non-existent. I also want to get the clean trooper, but I don't think Hasbro will put any more out and I won't pay a scalper for one.

Emperor's wrath wave, but only in special stores (SW stores that is).
09-07-2001, 08:17 PM
In L.A. we've gotten up to the Shmi wave for the little guys, the new Death Star 12"ers for the big guys, and the Tie Interceptors - Palm Talkers have been spotted as well. But we haven't seen the Vader wave or Deluxe figures yet...

By the size of my belly, I'd say I'm at about seven months.....
I'm in the Metro Detroit area, and I have yet to see Aurra Sing, Lando, and the Sandtrooper, among others. I go into stores and see tons of lame-*** figures like Ketwol and Duros...but no Lando. Every store seems to have a bunch of Bespin guards...but no Lando. The other day, while on a casual store visit, I swung by the toy aisle...and found it filled with SHMI. WHAT THE HELL? I'm sure someone's been wanting this figure, but why, I don't know. Mixed in with those future pegwarmers was new Basketweaving Obi-Wan with Basket (otherwise known as Training Obi-Wan...like a helmet is going to protect you while you're lightsaber fighting). Ech. How the heck is it that I can find endless fodder figures like the Bespin Guard and none of a main character like Lando Calrissian?!
In Australia we are up to the Ketwol wave which is out now and the Sandtrooper wave is also out if you can find it :)

I have everything except for the last wave. I still need Shmi, Vader, Han, Luke, and Ben. The Tie as well, but i do not think i will be picking that one up.
09-08-2001, 11:30 AM
I've got all up to the Duros wave, plus Duros (meaning I do not have the entire Duros wave). Have seen the Ketwol wave at shops for too much, so I'll wait.
09-08-2001, 12:03 PM
I'm buried in the Ketwol wave right now. Sheesh, it seems my locol Toys R us can't get enough of them. And they'll pay for it, cause here in a month they won't be able to sell them.

In the Dallas/Fort Worth area we await the Vader/Shmi, et. al. wave anxiously, still no sign. I did see a Shmi at the Toy Show today (boy is she pale!) but it was not marked and I was not going to pay scalper prices.
Still no sign of the TIE Interceptors here either, except a the toy show today. I really feel sorry (not) for the scalper with 30 (yes, that is thirty!) B-Wings at $50 each. I spent all last week seeing almost half that many between about four or five Target stores, at regular prices. That's going to be a hard sell!
I'm hopeful I can find an Interceptor so I'll have something to trade for the Bomber which I will almost certainly be unable to find.

We're up to date here and the Shmi / Vader wave was here 2 weeks ago. Interceptor is here too.
09-08-2001, 09:40 PM

Han Solo Stormtrooper
Death Star Trooper
Death Star Droid
3 3/4 Figures:
Obi-Wan Jedi Training
Darth Vader Emperor's Wrath
Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot
