Canadian perspective:

Basic figure price:
Walmart: $8.92
TRU: $9.99

Comic 2 packs:
TRU: $16.99
Zellers: $14.99

Whatcha all complainin' about?  12% tax added onto those prices too. 

We now return you to your proper thread topic...

You should just move to Minnesota.  You would be much happier here, eh?  ;D

Maybe yes, maybe no.  Certainly from a toy perspective, yes.

Ya we already heard your reasoning about staying in Canuckia and you made some good points, but I have no idea where that post is.

The WM exclusives are priced lower anyway. :P

Not mine, they were $10.88. :(

Not that I minded...  That's not too bad and I really like the Keller/Marine set.  It's impressive.

In Chicagoland the Wally comic set were $9.88. Overall, I really liked these sets. The twins set was the least common and outside of the Bail cloak, if you already have these, this is an easy pass. I really dig the Comic Fett, he is a great addition to the Mandolorian troops. The white Marines were also welcome repaints. Great price & great figures! Hopefully these will be easy to find. I snapped up 6 Keller sets as they seem to be the most common. I am glad Hasbro foreseen that and packed it heavy.

Morbug, were some of your reasons for staying in Canada have any Degrassi connections to them? ;)

No, truthfully I haven't watched the most recent iteration of DeGrassi at all.  I think the initial DeGrassi was out after I actually finished high school, so I've never been much of a fan really.  It's been a long run for different versions of that show though.  So I honestly can't say if I have anything in common with the DeGrassi portrayal of Canuckia.

One Walmart in my area has raised the price to $10.88 on the comic packs, but the others are still around $9.96.

I got my StarWarsShop.com order yesterday.

Lt. Shan is very nice...the removable hat from Luke will be getting cast (not by me) so that the Death Star briefing guys can have hats..

I have not had a chance to get the 2 Stormtroopers out yet or even look at them..I'll get a mini view later if time allows.

Picked up the walmart exclusives on line at their web site. If you order on the web site, they have free in store customer pickup.

Any interest in selling off some extra cast caps?  I have no idea how to do this, but would love to get some spares and I'm sure others would as well.  Let me know if we can work something out!

Yo Phruby, I did the site to store thing too. Says it was shipped, so hope I don't have to wait much longer. I was tired of going there 3 and 4 times a week and finding nothing comic pack wise. Have you noticed the 4 figures for $20.00 deal they have going online only. I thought about doing it in store because they claim they'll beat anyones price.........

From, http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/TAC_2008_Rumor_Update_111911.asp

# Comic Packs
The popular Expanded Universe 2-packs series continues in 2008 with a number of characters, mostly from the Dark Horse Comics series. No photos of any of these sets have been revealed yet, but the spy reports keep on trickling in:

# Quinlan Vos & Master Tholme - from various issues of Star Wars: Republic, both characters should have their Jedi robes



# Wolf Sazen & Darth Nihl - from Star Wars: Legacy



# Alto Stratus & Nimbus Guard - from Star Wars: Republic



# Jodo Kast & Boba Fett - from Star Wars: Twin Engines of Destruction



# Finally, another pair of Marvel Comics sets are rumored to be in the works, in order to finish off the adaptation of A New Hope. Past rumors include Princess Leia & C-3PO and Han Solo & Jabba the Hut

Thank you Hasbro for Alto Stratus & Nimbus Guard!

Sweet! I am very glad to hear Jedi Quin/Tholme & Legacy sets are coming. The Leai & C3P0 set will be an easy pass but the Han/Jabba will be very appealing to get since there is a new cantina alien in there.
The other 2 sets rumored are a bit of a mixed bag for me, but as I do 90% of the time, I am sure I will buy them too.

No I didn't see that. I'll have to check it out.
