What are you fussin' about?  You got one!   :P

So, where is everyone finding this Galactic Heroes stuff?  I know Jared came across the figure sets at TRU today, and I've heard of it being found at K-Mart too.  Which other stores are in?

Also, what aisles are you guys finding these in?  The Playskool aisle?  Not the regular figure aisle, right?

And for anyone with the new figures and the old sets, how do the figures compare?  Any spot on matches where the figure is absolutely identical (I think the Vader might be)...?

My front doorstep...I should have the ANH figs from EE very soon.  I ordered all three sets right when they went up for preorder back in the day.

I was wondering where these have been showing up as well.  I thought I have read of sightings at both TRU and K-Mart now?  Also, how much have they been going for?  I think the ANH sets were up for sale at Amazon last I checked, and thought about ordering them there, but I think they were $6.99  per set.  I didn't know if that was in line with other prices, or a little high.  Definitely want to pick up those OT sets, maybe the AOTC ones as well (at least the Yoda one ;)).

Jared said they were $4.99 each at the TRU he found them at a couple days ago.  Not too bad...

My front doorstep...

That's cheating.  I was talking to the guy's who really get out there and do battle in the field at the retail stores.  Not online ordering sissies.  Thanks though.   :-*

I guess they were $5.99 at Kmart but I never found them so I took the easy way out and ordered them from EE.  I think (with shipping), I paid eight bucks for each two-pack.   :-\

chuckles found mine at K-mart.  I think the price was $5.99 though, cuz all three came to around $20.  Thus far they haven't passed the border.

Yeah, you tell her Scott!   ;)


But I might add, that it takes one, to know one.   Phhth.


Brent, I bet Jim's just scamming a buck off the top of ya' on each one.  You better ask him to start putting the receipts in the boxes with your stuff.  That's always an excellent idea, from what I hear...

Oh yeah, that helps out lots ::)  Big red circles from the customs folks comparing the receipt to the declared value is always a ton of fun >:(

hmm, i found the first three 2 packs in kmart yesterday, in the same aisle as the star wars figures. or should i say, the same aisle where i guess the star wars figures should have been, since they didn't have any. and they were $6.39 each. yeah, i said the same thing... what the hell kinda price is that?

as far as i can tell, here's how they compare:

luke/r2 - both new sculpts
han/leia - both new sculpts
ben/darth - ben is a new sculpt, darth is the same exact one from the last time.

all in all, not too bad. only 1 "repack" out of 6 is a way better ratio than hasbro  ;D

Just following your lead.  ;) :-*

Really though I think this worked out to our advantage by ordering through EE as everyone that seems to have picked them up around Michigan are only finding three of the four and so we'd of been out Chewbacca/C3PO (which is not good as Chewie is the one I wanted most, well second to Padme that is).
