Here in Australia the reason for the lack of supply of the product is
from lack of product (that is only part of the reason) but mostly
AOG don't have the rights to distribute B5Wars here in Oz yet!	They
have the rights to distribute the product in the US and Canada.  It is
illegal to distribute the game outside of the US and Canada.  So any
you have seen here in Oz are being sold illegally.  The release dates
have heard were given to Oz stores by US DISTRIBUTORS!!!!  Not by AOG.

I am as upset as the next person about this all, but I understand why we
can't get it here.  AOG have stated that they fully intend to distribute
overseas, but they are busy with the US market at the moment.  They have
told me personally that they want to supply the Oz market (and the
one too) very badly, but that at the moment, they are supplying their
immediate market, which is the US and Canada.  Once they have that done
have said they will start negotiations for the Oz and European markets. 
hope that it won't take too long.
