I can see now that this is going to be a little scary.  In my efforts to catch up on the OTC, I currently have no less than 26 figures coming in the mail, a mix of OTC and VOTC.  Because they're coming from 4 different people and likely arriving on 4 different days, the cost won't seem so bad when it's split up between those 4 days.  But when I start totalling it all on paper...  :-X

I don't know how it is in other areas, but since these two packs have started, they have basically sold out in a matter of days anywhere they have been found here.

Agreed.  While I haven't seen this new wave yet, the previous waves have all been very popular, never lasting more than 2 weeks.

I like them all.  Even Mr. OT only MacDaddy has a Padme, but I think that's only for her perky nipples.

[ears perk up] Did someone say nipples?  Perhaps this should be in the Top 5 Hotties thread? [...]   ;D

Ouch, you guys are making my brain hurt.  I wish SWS.com would get their shite together and send these out already.  I've been waiting long enough, and all of this discussion has me EXTREMELY curious as to what exactly we're going to be getting with these 3 3-packs.

2 thumbs up to a fellow Canuck.  He really helped me out by tracking down a Raycroft SportsPick figure and sent it my way at cost.  Truly a gentleman of the collecting world!  I really can't say enough.  Thanx Brent!   :D

When Ebay starts setting the standard by which the actual INDUSTRY determines price (and by which consumers accept said prices), then I think we're all in some deep **** folks.

Too true.  I guess when Hasbro knows how bad we want these sets, they can set the price at virtually anything they want. 

I guess I'm simply another sucker that buys into this:
nice product + slick packaging = another sale. 

I simply love displaying stuff like this, and know that I SHOULDN'T pay as much as I'll have to to get them, but sometimes the heart wins over the brain.  Ah, collecting... ::)   :)

End of the second intermission:  Canada 6 Russia 1

Frick.  I wanted to watch this so bad and was too busy surfing here.  Thanks for the reminder Brent.  And I call myself a Canadian?   :(

Looks like we won!  Woo hoo!   :D   That ought to shut those cocky Russians up for a year.

For that price, these should be delivered overnight on a silver platter by a big breasted lingerie model.   ::)

Translation: Please to note that new chrome sandtrooper bust from Gentle Giant will be available only to certain ebay sellers.  They will subsequently charge you your left nut to obtain this item.  If left nut not available, right nut will suffice. 

That's a hell of an accurate translation!   ;)   >:(  I guess right nut will have to suffice.

Anybody else wanting to go in on a case?  EE wants to charge me $63US to ship these to Canada  :'(  That's about $80CDN - frickin' ridiculous. 

If any of you guys in the good ol U S of A would be willing to help out a Canucklehead, let me know.  At this point I don't even own any form of Clone Trooper (never been lucky enough to find the singles or 3-packs), so I just can't pass up on this.

So I'm short a Starter Set/$12, and am stuck with 2 booster cases that I probably don't want.  What an *******.   >:(

I've been thinking of getting into these.  Send me a PM if you're interested in getting rid of them - but no rush, I realize you've got more to deal with here first. 

I'm definitely still learning about them - how many packs per case?  $/case?  Is this gonna cost me my left nut?

One of these days you guys are going to have to educate us poor stupid newbies (well, ok, ME, this stupid newbie) about this whole pink sweater business...   ???   :)

Well, consider me in.  Since I'm still finishing 2004's goodies, they'll end up in here too before I get to ROTS stuff.  I know it's going to be a pricey year (but a hell of a lot of fun  :)), so I'm not sure that I can even guess on how much I might spend.  Too scared to...

Date         Item                          Cost       Taxes       Shipping     Duty      Total
3-Jan-05  OTC Bib Fortuna         $8.98      $1.26                                      $10.24
                OTC General Madine  $9.99      $1.40                                      $11.39
                OTC Lando General    $9.99      $1.40                                      $11.39
                                                                                                                $33.02

I give you guys credit for even trying to wait for clearance sales.  I know that I don't have the willpower for it, so I'll bite the bullet and buy things as soon as I see them.  It seems like there's rarely enough figures around this barren province to even make it to clearance. :-[
