Cool to see these coming out. I have them ordered by the case, except for wave 3 that my dealer didn't ordered. SO I need to find a Resistance Trooper with only 1 TRU and 2 WM that have nothing around here. Should we start an help wanted thread?

My funds for toys is limited.  I honestly really hate it when multiple waves come out very quickly. I finally caught up with what I wanted in the 6" line and had to splurge to get ll the 3 3/4" BS figures (thankfully I did, the Walmart by my house had like 4 or 5 cases when I got my Rey, Finn, Poe but now all they have is Han and Luke).

Because of that, I won't be able to buy any new 6" stuff till January, which is when I hoped is when they would start showing up. :(

This is crazy... these waves are hitting way too fast. How many unique 6" figures is Hasbro planning to sell us in 2015-16?  500?  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

Scaring me - it's like they're grabbing for money now worried that the movie is going to turn people off.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Wow, this is way too fast. I am with everyone else here, I have a monthly budget for this and Christmas time is always a stretch anyway. Someone is jumping the gun here, whether its Hasbro or the stores, I don't know. It seems to me that they haven't even restocked the first few waves and now they are months ahead. I was lucky enough to get what I was looking for and JUST caught up.  ???


It is frustrating...I hope they re evaluate after the movie release and go back to a wave every 2-3 months or so. Its not like these things are cheap  :P

I'm actually OK with 4-5 waves coming out all at once - as long as the also get restocked concurrently. ie, all waves basically stay in circulation all at the same time. I've been promoting this kind of model for a while now. Release 6 waves all within the Sept-Dec pre-Christmas rush time. Then take Jan-Aug to basically just coast on restocking those waves for the rest of the year, with Hasbro topping up any reorders with revision cases that are made up of only the most popular figures from the 6 waves. Then reset again next Sept and do it all over again. It works well with the retail schedule - most toy sales are leading up to Christmas, keeps a variety of figures out there, and larger stores can still restock with the revision cases of high-demand figures in the "off season".

Maybe it's a naive idea from someone who doesn't know anything about how things work. Or maybe Hasbro/retailers are actually as stupid as we often think they are.
