There's also the matter of the Disney store.  Of all brick & mortar retail, they've started to be a go-to destination for Star Wars figures.  And TBS basic figures sell there for $10.99 each.

And $24.99 for 6".

To add to the price issue, and maybe it's proof or maybe it's shooting one's self in the foot, but K-Mart has upped their 6" prices from 19.99 to 21.99 online and in stores.

I want that Walker! Are these going to be stocked at retail stores too or just online?

Should be both... and supposedly, when I checked availability in-store, it said they were, but to call to see if they have any.  So I wonder if any have gotten to the stores yet?

Actually, 6" prices are going to go up a couple dollars in the next waves.

Someone else said that recently...  did I miss a memo?  Why does everyone think the price is going up?

I was looking at figures on Beyond Mortality yesterday.  Wave 5 and 6 figures are at 21.99, while earlier ones are 19.99 (including the Stormtrooper).

But, yeah, I feel that I can't spend too much more than that right now, so I might be pulling the plug on 6" figures. 

Actually, 6" prices are going to go up a couple dollars in the next waves.

What is it with TRU and sucky exclusives?

I doubt we can fault TRU too much.  I doubt they know when they get pitched these ideas whether there's any new SW figures or not, or if those 2 6" figures are still warming their pegs, in those exclusives.  Those in charge don't know figures like Jayson, Jeff or Jesse and others out there because they don't have one person who's a SW section expert, or Barbie, MLP, LPS, TFs, Hot Wheels, etc... They deal with thousands of different toys so if it looks good on paper, they probably sign up for it.

Saw some possible leaked plot points... if the beginning is what they say it is, I'll have to try hard to suspend my disbelief.

I believe I heard the SW figures are going to be in its own cardboard display.  Correct me if I'm wrong, if someone knows differently.

Do these count towards the 18?

JTA's reporting that we're to get 18 new (sculpt, non-repaint, etc) figures this fall... I believe this doesn't include Doallyn, Ree-Yees, etc.  I can't believe it's this Fall, but I guess more's to be revealed at SDCC.

So, let the guessing begin as to who's going to be coming.  I think Yakface was one and Bespin Escape Leia.

My gut is telling me that this is it;  I'm not going to invest into more figures from the new movies.  I feel like the OT is what I grew up with and love (not that I hate the PT, it's just wasn't in my childhood), so I think that will be my focus moving on.  But, yes, my displays are pretty much filled up now.  The other thing is that I am not sure if I enjoy picking up figures any more.  I think this is mostly do to Hasbro's recent downward spiral in quality of figures.  It's disheartening to find something you want at a store and leave it behind because there is an issue with pain apps or something.... it's one thing to never find an item on a shelf than to find it and leave it behind.  Hasbro is making it easy for me to quit.

Still haven't found these at any local B&Ns.  Count yourself lucky!  And nice score on the display!

Agree with Bill, though I've seen the dreaded movies.

I loved Soundwave as a kid.  There's no way he could be translated properly into today's world... a boombox and cassette tapes turns into what?  But that's technology advancement, so I can't complain about what they try to do.  I just think the old school Soundwave is cooler.
