    Delay for First Wave of 30th Anniv. Figures

    Production delays causing a 2-month hangup for the first entries of the 30th Anniversary line's basic figures.

    This just in, straight from Hasbro...
    Due to unavoidable production delays, the first waves of Star Wars 30th Anniversary basic figures for 2007 will be delayed until March. We ae looking at every way to get the figures in earlier, but fans should not expect to find them on shelf on 1/1 as we were hoping. We expect subsequent waves beyond the first to be on schedule shortly thereafter. We'll keep everyone updated as needed, but please be patient. Thanks!
    Looks like the supplimentary 3 repaint waves for The Saga Collection are going to have to hold us through these lean times a little longer. We'll post any more news on this matter as soon as we get it.

    Wow I guess I will have some time to save up for all the multiples I plan on buying this year.
    More is more. Less is less, Twice as much is good too,
    Too much is never enough except when it's just about right.

    makes me wonder though, on ebay there are sellers that say they have in hand the Galactic Marine. Have seen photos of hands holding the figure both on the card and loose.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Well thats good since we still have 2 more waves of Saga figs to get. That would have been a mess at stores.

    I am extremely glad to get this news. For more than one reason. It will help me to better prepair for the troop-building monetarily for one. The other is that if I am successful at starting up as a retailer...this delay will give me more time to be able to start with the beginning of the TAC.

    Blessing in disguise for me. Gives me time to catch up and save up.

    I think the demand for Greatist Battles and Heroes and Villians is why. I still see retailers stocking the pegs with these. We need more! They must still be selling like hot cakes. I forsee them doing the same by February or even March. Hasbro is going to have to ramp up production to fill the orders, and you can't have too much of a good thing. Though we might get a good mix of the last two Saga waves mixed in there if we are lucky. I hope Walmart is drowning in their exclusive Saga's by then.

    While I want to get these figures, I agree that it will give me more time to save up some money. I'll be getting less stuff this year for Christmas (not too much less, though) since I'm getting a drum kit that turned out to be somewhat expensive. I'm actually glad that these were delayed.

    Personally, I don't like this news, we've already suffered a lot of downtime over the past few years, the end of the Saga line left a void, the whole OTC line was filler and even it had to be padded to reach the finish line, the ROTS line had to be padded to fill half a year, and the Endor 2/TPM wave was released months ago (though you'd barely know it by store shelves, minus the pegwarming Naboo Soldier and Zapped Vaders of course) plus the TSC line already has 3 extension waves to fill the gap there. Hopefully it works out ok but all the downtime and extensions the last few years has left me wondering why there's so much stalling between August and March with all these lines, it makes it very frustrating to keep up.
