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.

That's the spirit, Dan!

I will buy this figure for full price because I have "Battered Spouse Syndrome"

At least this exclusive was in the movie. It's getting harder to say that with a lot of the figures (esp. clones) over the past year.

Nothing in our inventory yet.  I'm passing on this fig.  I'll probably pick one up for Jamie if he wants it.  The scalpers at my store will hoard these up but I think over time they will sit.

Looks like the e-tailers are starting to get this one in stock from foreign sources!



Might be time to break out that DCPI Number and see what you can find...

Interesting...it has the same foil SW logo as the UGH figures...a ploy to get the HW guys to bite!

I think it's safe to say that this one isn't going to fly off the shelves.

I'd like to have a couple, but not for $13 a crack.

I'd actually like one opened and I'm trying to keep carded exclusives now and then, but man the price...  this thing has to sit, I mean, it's really no better than the lava figs, so I am going to maybe try waiting on this.

It's different, but still those Lava figs sat and sat...  This thing has to.

I predict (famous last words) this will end the $13 exclusive fig.  At least at retail.  You can't justify it, unless speculators mistake it for the UGH thing.

I thought that the Lava Obi and Ani would be the end of the $13 figure.  Those things sat until they hit clearance at half price.

It all depends on the subject matter - Lava Vader and the two Clones were never found in my area (by me personally).

I think Greivous will sell*.  He's a bad guy, is technically a new figure (with the newly tooled flames) and has pretty cool packaging that resembles the UGH look.

*Famous last words.

I wish i had stores where the exclusives sat in clearance prices. Here in the NY/NJ area, nothing ever lasts that long.  :-\

Hah!  Not only is it going to grow wings and fly off the shelves, but people will be frantically trying to find employees with DCPI #'s in hand to grab them from the back. Before they even have the opportunity to fly off the shelves, they'll be flying out of the stockroom.  It'll be an impressive sight for sure for a 2"-too-short piece of **** that's two times too expensive.

True.  It was the like the shadow troopers.  I saw all these "collectors" giving employees a hard time so they go back into the stockroom.  When you have to do that then you should know this is no longer a hobby but rather a pathethic addiction. ::)

I can live without this figure.  I do not have the shadow trooper and I am still alive!
