I also found both Bossks at Target for $4.24 each.

and im sure the prices will continue to go down, because nobody wants them.

For four dollars, I would get a Bossk.

I wonder at how telling the quieted down amount of traffic on these lately is?

Have heard nothing for awhile either from Hasbro or retailers.

If Hasbro was taking a break producing this..then I would feel they notified retailers and such the retailer is reducing and clearancing knowing that they won't see the product again for a time.

I need to hurry up and pick up a GG before it's too late...likely Ebay :(

Wonder if Hasbro is addressing the cost issue on these as a driving factor of reduced sales. Maybe at this minute they are tolling over how to simplify the packaging more or other options to reduce manufacturing costs. I think they need to get down to roughy 8-9$ a figure to make more sales and open to more buyers.
Hope so as I am intrigued with the line and hope it continues....

I wound up getting IG-88 today.  Ordered it through WalMart.com and they actually came through.  Who knew that their online store was worth checking out?

I certainly wouldn't mind if they toned down on the packaging, I don't care for those bulky name-plate bases, which I tend to remove and put aside.

I wonder if the production of the Marvel Titaniums impacted the Star Wars line.

I have the Bossk and the stormtrooper figures for a few months now, and exept for the price (about 30 euro's~40 Dollars) there quite good too have. The reason that the price is so high is that there a bit heavier than normal toys and they have to be send to Europe. But I look forward too the 501st trooper and IG-88.... 8)

Tell me about it.  I actually ordered Vader's Jedi Starfighter a few weeks back and it arrived within four days of ordering.  I ended up paying $5 more than retail, but considering this particular ship is 1 per case...I figured it was worth it.

Checked in at EE again today. Now they list wave 5, rev 2 as 'cancelled'?! ...AND, wave 5 that was just listed as available in June is now suspiciously listed as 'sold out'?! So now I'm really starting to wonder if Hasbro cancelled the line off indefinately. Will call EE today to see what is really going on here, hopefully they tell me something meaningful.

We asked about the Titanium 3.75" figures for this week's Q&A, so hopefully that will shed a little light later today...

edit:
And now we've got our answers for today:

Quote
3. What does the future hold for the Titanium Series 3.75" Forged Figure line? It seems like the major retailers are clearing out the figures and ending support for the line, but there are a pile of 10-12 previously announced figures that have yet to be released. Is this line really being cancelled or will it be making a comeback this summer?

**We would love to continue to support the Forged Figure line and we will continue to support the line through Spring of 2007. Unfortunately there was not enough demand for this figure line which has resulted in a lack of retail support for the figures by our retail partners. My advice, buy them now because they will not be around for long.

Sounds like this line is indeed on it's last legs.

Indeed ::), and I doubt that of the 11-12 remaining, all will be released into production. If the etailers are cancelling too, then this line IS done.

I know they showed them at the con..but I wonder how many of those are/were just prototypes? I wonder if molds were made for any yet? I still will call EE later and see what they say about wave 5. Who else/what other on-line etailers sell these?.....gonna buy now who ever does sell them. :( >:(

Shocking.

Not in my eyes.  I never even looked twice at these things until they started hitting clearance.  $15 was way too much to ask for these things.
