    I just saw it on the main page, Hasbro isnt going to realease the second set of cantina sets! The ones with Wuher and that Praying Mantis guy that i needed to complete my cantina diaroma with! Man, why did Wal-Mart hafta order a billion of those things per store? And why did they hafta realease the crappy repaint Ponda, Greedo, and Hammerhead ones instead of the cool ones? I am SO ticked off!!! :mad:

    Im gonna go burn some plastic army men...

    Ah man,I would've at least bought Wuher! Well,it's Hasbro's fault,as well as Wal-Mart's,for ordering too many of the first series. If anybody is still looking for them,my local Wal-Mart still has a bunch. You're welcome to them.

    Well, I can't say I'm shocked to hear this considering how poorly these sold (actually, I shouldn't say sold at all since every Walmart I go into still has a full display of these :p ) Walmart would have been crazy to do a second line. Still, it's a shame, I was really looking forward to the Praying Mantis alien. Let's hope these figures get released in some other way in the future...

    Boooo. No praying mantis.

    Oh well. That's 30+ bucks we'll save.

    I bought all three of the first set, and would have bought all three of the second set :p

    I am not surprised though, that they cancelled it. Bummer, though.
