    They were supposed to be out in December, but I've seen nary a one. Let's hope Wal-mart still plans on putting them out.

    I havent seen them here in Oregon yet. Not sure I even will. The Walmarts around me havent been stocking any of the Basic Figures in the past few months really. Whenever I stop in they have maybe 2 figures at the most

    I don't know what it's like at other area Walmart stores, but the only SW merchandise my local stores have anymore is peg after peg full of cantina sets. These things don't seem to be selling at all, so I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see the second wave for awhile yet... :(

    Cantina Scenes November 1, 2002

    Dr. Evazan - Cantina Scene
    Kitik Keed'kak - Cantina Scene
    Wuher - Cantina Scene

    According to that, which is from The Official Site's Cargo Bay, they have been out for a while now. I doubt that is the case as I don't recall anyone seeing them in stores yet, so perhaps their being held back till the first wave gets sold? ?[face_plain]

    That date of 11/02 has to be wrong. LIke Mr. Neck said they have to waiting for the first wave to sell out. I had a hard time just find the first 3 sets.

    I agree. I really liked the first three. I finally got them over christmas. I don't go to Wallmart much, only to get their exclusives usually.

    I like how they connect together. Although the figures are quite quite smililar to previous figures made by hasbro

    *rolls eyes*

    The first Cantina wave sets are flooding the pegs at Wal Marts in my area as well. I found all 3 sets at once in October, I think.

    I worry about the second wave, and Wal Mart in general. There hasn't been a sniff of the Trash Compactor sets anywhere around here, and the Cantina sets are also a WM exclusive. Let's hope WM gets their act together and returns to its spot as the top place for new figures.

    I'm worried about my WM as well. They literally cut the SW section by better than half after the reset. And there hasn't been a sniff of a new figure since october.

    I have seen the trash sets on two different ocassions. You have to be quick though, they are only packed 2 sets ( 2 of each) per case.

    Great. Think I'll wait until after school ends to get them on ebay.
