The set has hit a hobby shop at a mall i usually go to. (Square one,Ont.) They are selling for $49.99. Im not sure if thats a good price for the set BUT it does look pretty cool. I might buy it, depending on my mood and pocket size the next time i go that is.

I can't imagine you couldn't get it cheaper online even if you're in Canada...  That seems pricey.

Hobby stores tend to jack up the price, we have a store in the city here that is insane. JesseV should remember that store, wouldn't surprise me it was at $89.99.

Legends has the set on preorder for $44.99, a tad cheaper but add the shipping cost.   :-\

A no win.

if i buy it online i will get screwed over one way or another. But then again at the hobby shop every sunday they have a 25% off all figures sale. So it wont be much but i can save some off of the set. but like i said, it depends on my mood.

Same here but I got it with 20% off because I work there part-time.

Got mine in yesterday from ToynK.  I absolutely love the headsculpts on the 4 new Imperials; seriously, these may be among the most accurate (or at least superbly done) human face sculpts.  I even put Tarkin's head on a Saga Ozzel body to get a more accurate ANH version.  I will need to repaint the face and hair though- he's WAY too pale.

Got mine about a month ago and still haven't opened it up, but I'm going to do it this weekend!  The packaging on some of this stuff is so good that it almost displays better in the box.  Sure is easier to dust that way.   :P

CorranHorn from FFURG took the packaging and hacked it up some to make it an open display.  Really slick looking the way he did that.

I find I'm saving more and more packages lately...  Commando package, DSBriefing, Felucia pack...  All great stuff to fiddle with on a shelf so you can display it all together.

If you are still looking to buy this check out newforcecomics.com

http://newforcecomics.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=NFCC&Category_Code=SWP3C

I've bought from them in the past and their stuff is top notch for about as cheap as you can get.  They have this for $30 or two for $55...can't beat that price. 

I got one to open and left one sealed - I like em both.  Was a little dissapointed to see that Motti and Tarkin are essentially rereleases...they could have increased the articulation on these two.  Vader is a little crappy as weill compared to the dozens of vader releases, but I was pretty happy with the four new imperials.  Just wish they had knee articulation!

Not bad prices at all on those...  I too was bummed on Motti and Tarkin, but more Tarkin than anything...  He's terribly inaccurate and I think a new head on one of the bodies they used for allt he others would've been pretty nice...  at least till an all-new figure is made (hopefully) at some point.

As he is though, he's a real stinker...  Motti's eh.  He looks different to all the others which is distracting to me, and I already had him, but eh he was tough to find for many so I don't mind him too much getting slipped in.  It helped people who needed his figure yet.
