    It's been over a month since the third wave of figures in Hasbro's Saga Legends collection it shelves in Canada and there is still no sign of them on U.S. cards. Considering the waves from 2012 and 2013 that were never made available in the U.S. the Probe Droid is tallying how many American collectors are concerned this assortment won't be sold domestically.
    Despite my bravado, I am concerned. I don't want to miss out on a single release.
    It wouldn't be ideal, but if I have to resort to eBay to get mine I will.
    Yes I'm concerned. I totally want to army build those Snowtroopers!
    I am only interested in one or two of the figures, but I don't want to rely on the secondary market.
    I'm not collecting the 5POA line so I'm not even worried.
