    OK I got some more info, SWNZ Fan Club has an account with a hasbro distributer. We are able to order whatever we want as long as they have it in stock. Currently all they have is the figures that have been available from TW and the Warehouse since Feb.
    The thing is we will only order if we are able to sell most if not all of the case because we don't really want to get stuck with loads of unwanted figures.

    We are attempting to find out if we can get the new vehicles, IE: B-Wing, Tie intercepters etc. It's a bit of a long shot but we'll do our best.

    If you want anything let me know, best way would be to post here so we can keep track of what everyone wants as we have to order by case. I'll try get a list of what's in each case available and post it here as well.

    Remember we will only order if we can get people wanting all the figures in the case.

    battle droid boomer damage
    bespin Han
    Plo Koon
    K3P0
    IG 88

    If i'm correct so far we have the following wanted.

    Darth Vader x2
    Scout x2
    Battle droid boomer x2
    Bespin Han x2
    Plo Koon x3 (i'll order one)
    IG88 x2
    Mon Cal x2

    Which means if we get buyers for one each of the rest we'll be able to get a case of each.

    Now the following problem will/has occured, as more than one person wants Darth Vader. I'm not sure how to do this but as ACER posted he wanted it first I feel inclined that he has it.

    Before we start discussing details and stuff let's sort out who wants what :)

    Did you include one each for me?
    I dont actually need them all, this is what I want:

    2x scout trooper
    1x plo koon
    1x Ig88
    1x Battle droid boomer

    I'll keep asking round to see if anyone else want them.

    Update: I may have got a bit muddled so here it is ironed out (hopefully)

    Case 1:
    3x Plo Koon
    1x K3po
    2x IG 88
    1x Mon Cal offficer

    Case 2:
    3x Scout trooper
    2x Battle droid boomer
    1x bespin Han
    1x Darth Vader

    OK so we still have a few things to get rid of. Let people know who you think may be interested.

    Can you (SWNZ) post a list of what needs to be sold so we can all try to find buyers for these items. That way our orders can be confidently put in by yourself without getting stuck with any leftovers.

    Is it possible to ask someone at Hasbro why they pack the cases so strangely??

    Surely it would be way easier to have say three of each figure in a case, or even a whole case of each figure.

    Or even better, let shops order whatever they want - one of these, two of those, etc.

    This has puzzled me for a VERY long time.

    The only reason I can see for packing the cases strangely is to 'pump' up the prices on the hard to get figures. Maybe american shops are paying Hasbro a kickback for doing this.

    3x Plo Koon
    2x K3po
    3x IG 88
    1x Mon Cal offficer

    Case 2:
    3x Scout trooper
    2x Battle droid boomer
    2x bespin Han
    1x Darth Vader

    Left Overs:

    1x K3po
    2x Mon Cal offficer

    Case 2:
    1x Battle droid boomer
    1x bespin Han

    ---------------------
    They have always packed them that way. I think it is to do with the availability of figures. If they want or know some figures will be sort after they put only one in a case that means shops have to buy many cases to get many figures.
    This happened with Plo Koon, originally there was only 1 in a case but they changed it and now there are 3. Who Knows?

    Sorry sw4eva they were the only ones left.

    Please check and confirm your order is right, with only 1x K3PO left over it all looks good. I'll talk to Jonathan about the Order then we should be all go.
    If you can find someone who wants the last 2 figures that would be great.

    EDIT: Just added the last Mon Cal to the list

    Just K3PO

    As far as B'omar is concerned he is a mail-away figure, your best bet would be to mail or fax hasbro NZ in Auckland. You shouldn't have any problems.
