I work really hard to get the new stuff. I wake up extra early at hit walmart & Target on the way to work. I have been "fortuante" to find 7 of the 10 UGH figures.
I am not a packaged collector but there was no way I could pass on them when I saw them. I got sucked in with UGH Cody & ATAT, then came Anakin & Obi, then Snowtrooper and today Scorch & Grevious. With 3 left to go I have to finish the damn set.
I could easily live without them. It was actually smart on Hasbros part, its a traffic generator. It keeps you coming back even when you do not need to.
With no movie in sight they need to keep the buzz alive. In the Chicago area it works. There are so many scalpers coming outta the woodwork.
I was so happy to beat one today by 1 minute to the UGH Scorch & Grevious. Very satisfying indeed.
I was at a show this past weekend and 90% were only going for 15-25 max. So I do not think it will kill the after market. I refuse to pay higher than retail.
For those of you who have not found them you are not missing much.
