Because of the case assortment:
2x Obi-Wan (Jedi Starfighter Pilot)
1x Chewbacca (Cloud City Capture)
1x Han Solo (Endor Raid)
2x of each of the Bespin wave (Luke, Vader, Jango, Mace)
I'll never be able to find Han or Chewy because of this 1 of each figure in 1 box deal. This really fries my apple. :mad:

I think Hasbro enjoys doing this to us. They like packing new figures 1 per case just to make us hunt for them.
But Dooku Fett, you've got friends on this board, and we'll keep an eye out in our areas for them.

End :).

Not to mention, the next case assortment will probably have 2 Han's and 2 Chewie's, and only 1 Obi-Wan. So in the wise words of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.. "Don't Panic!" :D

MTFBWY and HH!!

I'll never be caught up with all these new figs coming out every week or so.

I'm not even caught up with the April 26th figs yet, I've only got 10 of them, and no new releases.

Hasbro, Would you PLEASE stop screwing up the assortments. Didn't you learn anything from the Episode 1 mishaps? Mace and Jango are starting to clog the shelves already at Toys R Us. And I may not even want the Obi-Wan Pilot figure. I am very upset with this.

Jebus Hasbro!
I'm like up to my neck in Mace's over here, and now they wanna send more, and jip us on Han's and Chewies?
While I do want Obi-Wan, Han and Chewie are some of the coolest figures I've seen in a while and I dont think iv'e anticpated figures as much as these two recently.
:mad: to Hasbro.
I'm sure eventually I'll find Han and Chewie. But thats not soon enough.

Hey at least my Wal*Mart will see the Bespin wave again. One time, it had 5 million FB Jangos, 1 or 2 GR Maces, and 1 or 2 BD Darths. No Lukes, though. I got 0 of said figures. :cry:
DookuFett, I hate when my apples get fried :D

Wow! Now I know where all the figures that I can't find are! Over by everyone else! I've been trying for the past two weeks almost every day to get a Mace Windu and FB Jango Fett, but had no luck! And I definately can't find any of the Bespin wave either. When can I expect shipments in my neck of the woods?

Yikes!!! I still can't find Palpatine and Puhr and 3 new ones are coming out!!!! The well of new figs hath run dry locally, so I'm sure I'll be hunting for these as much as I did for Dooku. What's the deal with that? Why not make them so everyone can find them? It's not as if I'm going to buy seconds, thirds and fourths of the peg warmers so I can feel like I'm getting something on these jaunts :-(

I'm fine with the proximity they're releasing them among each other, but not the numbers :p. My number one hot spot is the local 24 wal-mart and there are four rabid fans that work there that get first pick- this should make getting them quite daunting. oh well, I'm graduating the 7th- PLENTY of free hunting time

PLEASE read my post in "Hasbro mocks the collecctor".
There are no shortages of ANY figure.

"Plug for me" - You can always pre-order your figures from our on-line store or join our exclusive "One Of Every Figure" club and never miss another figure.

Thanks :D

i cant find anything much here, becuase of the looters. they come and pilfer and steal the figures, then there is nothing but a few damaged ones in the bottom of a bin that no one wants...

This case assortment is strange, but figures like FB Jango and GR Mace are not clogging the shelves everywhere. None of the stores in my area have them sitting around and you have to be pretty quick to find them. Figures sell differently in different areas so it's not as though the nation is glutted with these two figs.

This won't be the only case assortment to carry Han and Chewie. Another case assortment will pack them in higher quantities I'm sure just like they've done several times in the past.

why couldnt hasblo get the hint? do figures like kenner did on the vintage collection. 50 per box and heavy pak the heroes, villans and the strong sellers. stop making so damn manny jangos, darth vaders, and r2 d2's. lets get back to the basics. I have been a fan since the 1st go around and i dont remember ever having a problem finding figures, even the vinage potj. and the scalpers were never a problem. THOSE WERE THE DAYS.

I think people have become more selfish over the years. That's the reason for all this scalping. All of those people want is more money.

Heya all,
In the Mansfield/Sandusky area, FB Jangos and GR Mace's are starting to show up en masse. KB in Mansfield got in the Qui Gon and Rebel Soldier, but very few Mace's and almost no Jango's.
Bespin Darth's and Luke's are STILL tough, Luke even more so than Darth.
Now here's a case of Good Luck/Bad Luck. Yesterday, I went looking for a Bespin Luke to open (I have an unopened Bloody Luke). Me and 2 of my friends walk into a TRU and there are TWO Bespin Lukes! Then I take a closer look at them: They're BOTH bloody! And yes, I AM gonna try to trade off the 2 Bloody Lukes, and the post is in the Trading section on here. STILL doesn't help me with finding a Bespin Luke to open haha ;o)
All I can say to you folks having a tought time finding the hard to find figures, just hang in there. From what I've seen, as new waves come out, the at one time "hard to get" figs get easier. I mean, those of you who can't find Mace or FB Jango's oughta come to my neck of the woods ;o)

Have a ball,
Dan
