Let's be very, very FRANK about the availability of the New Star Wars Episode III Toys be it 4" or 12" Action Figures, Deluxe Figures, Vehicles or Playsets - if you are depending on Hasbro to fulfill the requirement of the local Klang Valley market, then please do not get your hopes too high.
I have a baaad feeling that History will REPEAT itself where the DEMAND whilst the Hype is ON will be MORE than what Hasblow Malaysia can distribute and supply. When SUPPLY reaches the Toy Departments, the CRAZE would have COOLED down considerably by then. This of course my observations which I hope that Hasblow Malaysia CAN prove me WRONG this year, 2005! ;D

Heard that Hasbro is brining in lower quantities compared to EpII (flooded market until today still can't clear), generally based on orders from retailers. And you expect the specialty retailers would most certainly be basing their orders on pre-orders by customers. So, perhaps might be in for a hard time looking for specific figs.
Got info for TRU 1U today all Vaders, Clone Troopers, and Grievous already sold out (scalped?).
So D. Tater hasn't shipped now, has he? There's nothing in my inbox from UltToys informing of its arrival,..and I KNOW i pre-ordered them in advance!
One to keep, one to play (and display @ the office!), one for my sayang.. ;D
It is sometimes a mistake to climb; it is always a mistake never even to make the attempt. If you do not climb, you will not fall. This is true. But is it that bad to fail, that hard to fall? -DREAM, from Neil Gaiman's Sandman
