    Here is my problem; I can not find the 30th Anniversary Star Wars toys in my area. By the time I get to a store all the good stuff is picked clean and all that is left are the 9,000th Darth Vader toy ever made and some R2-D2s. Now there are only 3 from the upcoming waves I want: Holiday Special Boba Fett, Darth Malak, and Darth Revan. The only place I have seen on-line that I can pre-order them is BBST but that’s only in full waves and I don’t want the others.

    So the big question, are there any other web stores that take pre-orders on individual Star Wars toys? Or am I going to have to wait and pay extra on ebay to the people that clear all the stores around here out?

    this is exactly the kind of shit why i stopped collecting 3 3/4s. i dont hate the toys themselves, but the collecting environment/situation, if ur a brick n mortar shopper, sucks.

    good luck anyway buzz.

    Ebay:
    Rip-off BriansToys.com has them...for $15 a piece.

    I hit the 24 hr Walmart at midnight when I get out of work at least once a week. If I find more than one (one for myself first) I'll be happy to send them to you at cost (fiigure price + shipping + 3% paypal fee).

    I hit the stores pretty often here... and I haven't missed anything i really wanted yet. Of course there aren't that many collectors in my hometown, so I have pretty good pick over our WM.

    I also travel to STL and I have tons of luck there.

    The only 30th figures I've purchased are the Mcquarrie Concepts... and I have all 3. I even have a duplicate Boba to open.

    Just be persistent. I'm usually in 1 store a day... just looking.

    Thanks for the tips every one.

    Yes, as I said in my first post they sold out there pre-orders for the individual figures and only have pre-orders for whole waves but I don’t want any of the others in the waves.
