1st one on the bay at BIN $199-  :P

Sadly that's a lot cheaper than I thought first one would be.

I think it's cheap for two reasons:
1. It's prequel stuff and I just don't think it sells as well.  Yeah, Zam, blah, blah, blah.  Gotcha ;)

2. It's early yet and folks aren't all that fired up by the lack of them around.  I'm willing to bet if it had been listed at $299 BIN instead, it still woulda gone.  I'd like the clone out of it, but otherwise nope.

This set just has so much going against it- TC-14 is a 3-PO repaint, the red clone has some stripes, and Jango is choking up the place because he was overpacked in the regular assortment. The Super battle droid is unique, but I don't care much for how it came out myself. And Padme is pretty ho-hum in my opinion. Compare that to the 07 set (unique imperial trooper, Yoda on Luke, another droids figure, 2-1B and a ho-hum pilot) and it is a pretty big difference.  I won't be paying more than $100 or so for the '08 one. If they only made a handful, I guess the price will stay high, but I hope that is not the case.

Dan I was thinking the same thing.  I thought for sure the Darth Maul and speeder set would come down in price and it hasn't.  I think anything that is sold from the collectors club is going to be tough to get.

We have only seen a hand full of these sets show up on the bay. Even if the price drops, I'm still happy to acquire one. Once all the Kub's arrive in the mail, I'll be caught up till more stuff comes out.  8)

Well, I'm passing for now. I'd consider it at 199 but not at 299

Took a couple of hours this time, but it sold...  We'll see if the price goes up another $100 the next time...

$300?  Unreal.   :o

I may have to learn to live without them if this is the new trend for these Medicom box sets...  :'(

Here we go again.  That's a lot of cake to spend on this box set with only 2 unique figures.

I'm either going to need to do that or wait until appleheadbb starts having his individual 'reject' figure auctions for these figures like he has been with the 2007 boxset figures...

I would not mind picking up another red clone commander for my Kubrick clone army.
