This is my first post here, I am glad I finally find an awsome forum about the Unleashed line!! You guys and gals have some great info.
My friend and I pre-ordered from Amazon like most of you did, but had the luck of getting our two Vaders and one Yoda. They arrived last week in ok condition, too bent up for me. BUT to my surprise, I walked into Wal-Mart today to find six cases of the little guys. I was so excited I just stared for a second. Imagine six whole cases of these things on the shelves. Anyways I started sifting through them and came up with only ONE of each figure in C-9 condition. Every other figure was so bad that I would only buy them to open. I couldn't believe how bent and smashed they were.
In my opinion years down the road its not going to a particular figure, its going to be the ones that are in top condition that will be expensive.
Anyways another good score I had about 2 weeks ago was at www.shopafx.com
. I found the Stormtrooper, IG-88, Sing wave there for $70.00 shipped to my door!! They were all in about C-9 condition. Very surprised.
Also, I live in Northern Cali. , no not San Fransisco, and I talked to the Target toy manager that is a freind of a friend, and he said that most Targets are getting rid of the first ROTS toys right now and on August 1st they have a huge shipment of new stuff coming. Don't know if this is true, but check your local Targets just in case!!
