The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2

Awesome, thanks.  I'll make sure to post here if by some freak chance I find them - but the next time I'll be near a Wal-mart at all is going to be at least 8 days from now.

If you had posed that question last Friday I would have said yes. I had an extra set that I had sent from a Canadian collector in a trade. But it is now gone

No worries, thanks anyway!

I have a spare Kylo Ren, and if you don't care about the condition of the package, I could probably grab a Princess Leia on the way home from work if you want (it was there this morning - so no guarantees).

I'd take the Kylo Ren off your hands - and I'd be opening them anyway so you could ditch the box and just ship him in something small.  If you run across a Leia that'd be great too, but I don't want to ask anyone to go out of their way, so if you were stopping anyway - awesome, if not no worries.

The nearest Wal-mart for me is about a 35 minute drive.

Do any of you guys happen to have extras of wave 2 you'd like to sell?

Took some patience, but I snagged an R4-D23 off ebay tonight for under $25 shipped.  Not terrible for a con exclusive that was $13 to start with...  :-\

I did the same thing - $23.99 shipped and told the seller they could open it up first if they accepted my lower offer.

Yep, and about five years ago I was getting these from my local comic shop for $46 out the door. 

$120 was already too much for a deluxe bust that was also a convention exclusive.  It's absolutely absurd for a regular release.  If you're dumb enough to order direct from GG, you're also going to pay about $10 for tax and about $16 for shipping.  So you're closer to $150 than $120. 

On top of that, it's not scheduled to show up until October of next year.  The movie comes out in less than 2 weeks and we have about 11 months before the first mini-bust is supposed to ship? 

Given their track record on timely releases, I'd bet you a dollar that it's not out in October either.

Yep.  Those T-1000 things were insane... 8 of them is beyond absurd.  Until I decided to stop worrying about this so much, I had collected 7 of them.  I just need the Patrolman chase version that's not frozen.  I paid like $35 for the hook-arms one, which is way way too much for one of these figures.  I also would still like to pick up the battle damaged T-800, but again, $30+ isn't happening anymore.  I'm starting to think that for regular releases I'm just going to start waiting a few months, like you're saying with the Fifth Element stuff, you can readily find these for less than $7 if you just hold out a little while and with over 100 of these already, I just feel like it's not good value for the money I've spent.

Some of these figures are actually starting to look really great.  I don't mind the lack of articulation nearly as much if they display really well and don't look like junk. 

1 stormtrooper?  They've lost their minds.

Thanks for the tip.  I actually decided that I'm done worrying about the variations with this line - there's just too many and I have a real hard time with the idea of one of these simple sculpts with almost no articulation costing more than $10 ($7 would be more in line with what you're getting).

Basically I'm looking for ways to collect a little bit less, and this is one of the ones I'm going with for now. 

That's absurdly tempting but where the hell am I supposed to one of those?!?!

For real.  Thanks for doing this - over and over again.

Anyone interested in buying one of these for just the vehicle?  I'd eat a decent way into your costs if you'd be willing to send me just the figures.

FOUR right.  4.

Worst I've ever done.  I can't figure this league out anymore.

I don't have much advice about what would be best for your family, but I love my Xbox One.

Also, Nintendo is working on something new - not sure when it's going to come out (certainly not before Christmas) but allegedly it's going to be great.

Found Atsy and Sarco Plank at TRU today.  It was a weird feeling finding new figures on the shelf when I wasn't expecting to.
