    have we seen the last of the e3 figure shipments?

    my walmart store has maybe 10 total figures left and as in past years, i don't expect to see anything else added before christmas. as of december, i have seen two assortments added. the seperation of the twins wave and the revised final collection 2 wave... both of which sold out in a day or two.

    all stores seem to sell their remaining stock at the end of november and do not get anything new until well into the new year. i can't help but think this is missing out on a huge sales opportunity. the action figures are an obvious big seller. walmart is even promoting them as one of the featured items for christmas as i still hear the commercial run over the intercom in the store ... but i guess anyone wanting them is out of luck.

    I really hope that you are incorrect, and I suspect that you are. I still see new figures hitting the shelves (just not the ones I need). I am keeping my eyes open, though, so that I don't miss out on the one I need.

    I found the newest wave (last of ROTS line) at Target. I think they will get more ROTS figures in. Right now, because of Christmas, shipments will take LONGER to reach the stores. I believe that there will be more ROTS figures in the coming month.

    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    It should be pretty slim pickings, given the pending launch of the new Saga line, but I do believe we'll still see the occasional SW E3 Basic case put out.

    Talking Fry's Electronics may surprise you...

    Houston, Texas here just to add my 2 cents...may or may not help, but we have received low volumes of the last wave of c2 in the area, but regular shipments of c1. Although c2 has been found at the three major retailers we have here TRU, Walmart and Targets. Now, the surprising thing is only our Targets are getting in the gray evolution clones and if you have a Fry's Electronic Store you may want to check them out for figs because c2 with vadars legion and gray evolution clone have been seen there. The only problem with the Fry's is their higher price point for a fig at 6.99 vs. 4.77, what can you do if you find the piece you are looking for...

    Good Luck,

    Being so close to Xmas now, I doubt we'll see much more than a case a week at most WM's and Targets... I know WM will be resetting their modulars after the 25th, probably, and clearancing the pegwarmers (Chancellor Palpatine and Mon Mothma, mostly), and doing the usual downsizing of their Star Wars section to make room for stupid wrestling figures.

    The ROTS line has nearly run its course, sad to say. It's been a good run, though.

    I don't know what cases you've seen at Target, but they haven't had anyrhing by me in weeks. All I want is the Tactical ops trooper, and only once did I see that case assortment out (no Clones left, of course). Still see the occasional Case 1 showing up, but not Case 2.

    Now when you say shipping...that changes my opinion some. Are there cases shipping? Maybe just one or two to each store depending on inventory. BUT REMEMBER...there are probably stores that have the last waves in the back but have not put them out yet!

    My local target had new figs out including 1 red guard and 2 spec ops clones. That mon cal senator fig is a MAJOR peg warmer, bet they had 20 of him.
