Good deal?

I went to the local markey today and I picked up an sith accesory pack for 3$.
He also has many more episode 1 figures there.

I remember when you could go to TRU or KB and get those for 50 cents.   :-\

At that time online stores used to give those 4 original acc packs out free.  I remember buying some battle droids online somewhere and getting all 4 sets for free.  The second set of 4 was short lived and hard to track down.  I have about 8 or 9 of those yellow droids that came with the naboo set.

Still though, $3 for anything isn't too bad Clone Commander.  Are the E1 figures on sale like that too?

I always considered the yellow droid in the one set a figure really too.  If they'd been made something like that, I think they'd have done better.  An astromech repaint snuck into them or something...  Price them slightly cheaper than a basic figure and you'd have a better way to market accessories cheaply.  It'd have to be a repaint figure though for that work really...  Something akin to the Target sets, only slightly better IMO since the figures in those were weak really.

Wow, those toys are only 7 years old  :P

Like Jesse said, its not too bad of a deal. Some of the sets are pretty nice.
