Is it the new releases this year, e.g. the 30th Anniversary and is it just the figures you are enquiring about?

We were a couple of waves behind but we are now about level, if you purchase the TAC figures from Play for example then at the moment you will be level. For example i was in the US last week and the waves on the shelfs in TRU were the waves that Play had dispatched to me prior to leaving, except in the US not all the figures were on the shelves due to demand etc.
Where the UK is far behind is the Saga Legends line and the VTAC lines, i have not seen any of these in the shops yet, although admitedly i have not been over looking as i have placed my orders with Play.

they put another wave out today so quick after last wave, this time it had the cincept han solo which looked pretty neat and r2d2 and spirit of anakin which looks crap, never had the 2 ewoks though. wonder why they never got the darth raven wave in as that was one figure i might have bought

hope thry get odie mandrill or whatever his name is as he looks cool

It's swings and roundabouts for release dates, sometimes the Uk are ahead of the US, sometimes behind. However any of the last known waves never hit the UK. It has always been the case since Episode 1. This is no fault of Hasbro, but more the buyer at the toy retailer end not being able to distinguish that they are the same product and going for 'the new line'.

Without Argos, Woolworths or Toys R Us putting in any orders, it becomes very unlikely that they hit highstreet retail. This leaves UK independants (Forbidden Planet included) to buy from UK distributors like Paugus and Toy Revolution, so it is always worth supporting local toy shops and dealers as they have to pay higher prices and go further than retail giants. If people don't support, they won't bother ordering as the 50p made on each figure sold (and I ain't kidding) isn't enough to support a business or a home.

Dave.
