Back to topic...these are fantastic figures.  I picked up all six at a TRU tonight (9.99!) and tey are great.   IG-88 and Bossk are two of the best made figures ever.  I can't wait for next year!  Nikto!  Klaatu!  Bararda!

We need an updated Walrusman bad! Basic or "Vintage", I want a Ponda Baba that's as amazing as Bossk! (Not to mention a decent Evazan...)

Be kinda nice if a nice Evazan was put out the same year Baba got a vintage figure or something...  Be a nice complement to one another I think, tie the two pricepoints together a little.

I have yet to find them but have taken a look at Jedijaybird's and those are pretty sweet. All of them look good and the likensses are dead on for them except for Luke and Leia. Leia's skin seemed too alabastorish. I at least am going to pick up the Bounty Hunters and the trooper, though.

Glad you liked them Steve. And as for Walrusman, I think it be cool if along with the normal hands (that can hold a weapon), they include a set of flipper hands as well.

But would Walrusman's arm be removable is the question  :P  And would the good Dr. have gut slashing feature?

I just got notification that my "set" has been processed and will ship shortly from BBTS, so if anyone is interested in ordering a set (or a case) they seem to currently be in stock over there (and elsewhere, I'm sure).

Check out this BS auction:

BIN coin certificate with stickers, $69.99

For less than that you can get all 6 figures, open them, and then mail away for the coins.

Bastard.

People are immense douchebags.  I have had people offer me figures for half price so they could get the mail-in, which I find to be more than fair, but more than the price of the figures to get a set of the coins?  You'd have to be really challenged to pick that up.  Can't stand people sometimes.

Conversely, here's an auction for all 6 figures MOC for $1.00 less than the first guy just selling stickers...:

Reply from seller:

"Hello, Other redemption certs sold for $10.00 more than we are asking. As you know I can ask any price I wish for any certain item. Because it might not actually cost that much doesnt mean I cant ask that much. What about the bids on $2.00 items that go for much more than that. You might not like this but it is not your problem. Back off if you dont like it and just dont bid or buy if you dont like the price. I personally could care less what you think. I have had several people ask me when I was selling the vintage figures included, if I would sell them just the certificate for the same price I was asking for the figures. Your disappointment does not upset me in the least, just dont buy from me. "

What an *******.

I wouldn't mind seeing the message that you sent him first that triggered the reply.
