Well it looks like they adjusted their prices quickly, $99 for the snowtrooper and $169 for the maul.  :P

 :o

I checked and I'm still at the old price too.  I printed off my invoice to keep, just in case.  I think the $99 price tag is still probably pretty reasonable, but I wouldn't have ordered at that price.  The price for the Maul is scary ouchy.

Good god, that price hike is insane.  :o

Yeah I guess once word was out & AHQ got a few preorders on those Kuby's they said whoa, bump them up. Good thing for those who got it in them, I got my preorder invoice shortly after placing my order & on my account the price is the same when I saw them.

I took a chance on both. Hope it works out better than the 2007 box set I tried to get off toywiz

Yep, I think the preorder at Toywiz went down the toilet like BBTS. Sure hope this all works out, fingers crossed.

I'm so glad I got my pre-order in before the price hike.

Guys, I hope this works, but I have to tell you I have my doubts.
The Box set was the same exact situation, unless these people know something we don't.

Actually its worse if you think about it, I don't think the Box set had a limit # on it, these do.

For anyone curious to know what a Medicom lottery winner is paying for this piece, with shipping it comes to ~$23.00 delivered to your door in Japan.  Ballpark figure, might be a little higher or lower depending on where you are in Japan.

No, not yet.  I don't recall the date they are going out, but it's not until May I don't think.  I'll check on that.

I think Medicom has charged credit cards for them already though.

It looks like the only 'bricks that were on display at the show this weekend (Winter WonderFest 2008) were the Blue Stars Snowtrooper and the Maul/Bloodfin set (pic courtesy of our friends at instictoy):

Just got an email from my Japanese buddy and this is to be shipped to him this month along with the Darth Maul speeder bike.  I wonder if I orders from the etailer on the previous page will be filled and honored.  And honored at the $49 price at that.  It's still not a bad price for them, half of that is profit.  Of course I can see why $99 would appeal to them more.
