Yeah but did the Twin Sets come with a $.05 plastic Clamshell with a sticker on it? Nope.

That'll be $12.99 please

:D

As JediJayBird and I were talking about last night - this is an OK piece, but would have been 1,000,000 times better if the fire would light up!!!

True that....

That's not a bad point knashdx...  I'd really like that actually and would consider the price a LITTLE more worthy...  Not that we know the price, but let's face we DO sorta know the price we're about to get raped with.

Grievous' DPCI # has surfaced...  Keep it handy if you need him, or if this is the figure you're considering the nail in the Target coffin, just ignore this entire thread then I guess. :)

Would have made the $13 price point believable too (you know, believable that Target has to charge that much.)

Hey, if they are willing to give us a flaming GG, maybe they’ll give us a smoldering Ewok carcass from ROTJ  ;D


LOL... with special burnt Ewok flesh scent... like those old Stinkor and Mossman figs from the Master of the Universe!!

I'd buy a smoldering Ewok carcass.  I'd army build with them.  Really.

Are the Grevious' figures actually showing up in inventories yet?  Or do we just have the DCPI now?

Rob, not yet I don't think, but I'd imagine we're not TOO far off now.  Month or two maybe?

Yeah, I don't see this one flying off the shelves. I wonder if this will have an unofficial May street date?

Yeah, maybe I will be smart enough this time to wait until they head to clearance to buy my opener version.  He's not a Clone, so I'm expecting him to sit like the Mustafar figures did.

I think he would sell pretty well with the kiddies, but when you consider that there will be at least two $7 General Grievous figures (Saga-030 and RotS Greatest Hits) out there at around the same time, I can't see many parents paying double to get this version instead.

I'll still most likely buy my carded version right off the bat since I lke those minty-mint, but I'm definitely going to try to wait this one out a bit until the clearance comes to grab my opener...

I won't buy this figure at full price. Period. When they can give me 5 clones with new paint in a cool box for 19.99, I say that is a great deal and will be first in line. 13.00 or more for a figure is ridiculous. Somebody's got to learn a lesson in economics, and it's either them or us.
