Sorry, but I think you're high.  I've been reloading HTS for half an hour now and none of wave 7.5 or 8 appear have been available... :P

You missed it.  I've posted before when **** has been in stock, and taken out of my cart within a minute before I could even check out.  It just happened to Ice with the Hawkbat clone as well.

Anyhow, my last 3 purchases from HTS have been that way, ever since they instituted that "1 per customer" thing.  I don't know why, but I used to buy many multiples in 1 shot, and not be in fear of it being taken out of my cart 60 seconds later as I was checking out.

Today I got lucky I guess.  If you want I can post a digital pic of me unpacking the box when it gets here.  I don't know what else to tell you.  I've been there, take a look at my post from November 27th - HTS's version of "Gone in 60 seconds"

It seems like they have been putting infinitesimally small amounts of the newer waves of figures up at a time, of the newer waves, and on top of that have slapped the "1 per customer" rule on them as well.  I have ordered from HTS.com a lot, and I have never been met with these 5 minute windows, and 1 per customer obstacles before about a month ago.  This has been a new thing.

I was noticing that too Matt. I wanted to pick up a half dozen A-Wing pilots with the coupon code but I'm not allowed to. :( The McSnowtrooper does appear to be in stock for anyone still in need of that one.

It was nice to have a better selection when they had so many figures up. I picked up a McSolo, Tycho and a couple of different clones.

Unfortunately I got home late and missed out on catching myself up on everything for 2007. ;)

Hopefully soon I can so I can capitalize on that coupon...  Would be nice to wrap this crap up.

What does/did the Endor AT-AT sell for in the US?  Up here, TRU has bumped their price up $10 to $99.99CDN.   ::)

I just read at RS their round up of Hasbro ?'s that the price of the comic packs is going up to 11.99 staring next year. Some dumbass actually asked Hasbro to raise the price sot hey could get "better" articulated figures! I thought the purpose of the comic packs was to give the collector a break on the price since it was cheaper to pack the figures this way,according to Hasbro. Well cross these off my list for a maybe buy next year!  >:(

A buck on two figures for, essentially, $5 won't break me, but it's annoying for certain...  And any tool asking FOR a price increase is really just not thinking straight.  Sure it'd be great if they follow-through with an articulation increase across the board with this increase in price, but the odds of that happening?  Slim and none...  Hasbro doesn't do anything across the board with price increases...

So that's the way the ball bounces I guess.

"A fool and his money..." and all that jazz.  Clearly he wants people to take his cash.

Ideally the figures would improve slightly, but really most of them were pretty decent to begin with.  Move Luke's ankle joints to his knees and he's suddenly a much cooler figure.  That could be said for several others too.  Relying on Hasbro to "come through" for you on that price increase doesn't seem realistic to me I'm afraid.
