What sites are the best for ordering wave 2? I have only ordered from Amazon and i know they have fast and free shipping over $25. What other sites are good? Looking for one that other players have good dealings with and decent s/h costs...thanks

I usually order everything from CSI, but for some reason, the Awings and Tie Int are "Out of Stock", while Slave I and the falcon are not.

Seems strange for pre order items to be out of stock, sort of defeats the purpose I suppose

Stores don't have access to an infinite amount of items--they are limited by what they can get from their suppliers. CoolStuff has already purchased some set finite amount of Wave 2 stuff from their supplier and then they sell that same finite amount of stuff as a limited number of pre-orders. They don't want to sell pre-orders that they are not sure they can fill.

When the pre-orders first went up, CSI had Interceptors and A-Wings in stock too, but they pretty quickly sold out. Now, CSI will probably be able to get more A-Wings and Interceptors in stock at some point, but they won't offer any more for sale until they know for sure they have access to more.

Since CSI was out of A wings and interceptors, I ordered my wave 2 stuff from Miniature Market.

I also did Miniature Market with a big enough order to get the free shipping. Amazon can be hit or miss with this kind of thing. There were a few crazy pre-Christmas discounts (I got some for about $7 each) that would pop up for a day or two then vanish. Now Wave 1 items are back at about $12.50 which seems to be the typical price there.

Another here who usually uses CSI, but had to turn to Minatures Market due to A-Wing and TIE Interceptor being out of Stock. Found out the shipping will be cheaper too, even though I live in the same state as CSI
