Well looks like he got smart and raised the price. Oh well at least I got a couple of under retail. :)

Jeez, do you think the factory is running extras after the lights go down?

Hmmm....they might be making extras.  That's the same guy I bought my three from earlier.  Might order a few more at least I know I'm getting them, and if you order several with shipping discounted, it's very close to retail price.

I know, I'm tempted.

I can't believe it's come to this - our acceptance of $13 figures....

I know... so damn expensive.  Do you have one of these yet Ruiner?  I am really surprised that I like this figure so much even at this price... :-X

Nope - I spent too much money this past month on full cases and a large lot of MOTU!

Regardless, if I see a Biker Scout, I'll most likely buy it.

I found my first one today.  I could have bought two, but at $12 a pop, I think I'll settle.  Now if I could just figure out how to open the clamshell...

I used the DCPI number at target and got to pull 2 fresh from the case!  2 is all I need, one to keep carded and another to join my biker scout squad.

I have one now and would like to get one or two more at least. Beyond that, it's just way too frelling expensive. ::)

So these are genuinely legit figures then?  Retail price is fine for me and I'd be opening them anyway and won't be chasing enough for multiple Lucas' anyway.

Oh, I'm sure they're the same as the ones on the pegs...but I don't know if I'd consider them legit.

My bad, legit isn't necessarily the issue I'm concerned about here.  I just don't want to get someone's kitbash/custom (no offense meant to the custom guys).  Rather I want the same item I can buy at retail regardless of its point of origin.

I've ordered from these types of sellers before.  There was a guy a few months ago that would sell "lots" of 5 to 10 Star Wars figures.  I bought from him several times and they were always authentic figures.  The quality seemed to be fine, but sometimes a few accessories would be missing.  It didn't bother me since I was buying them as custom fodder. 
Anyway, it seems like this seller is similar to the other sellers from that area that deal in current "factory surplus" figures.
