Concept Grievous at SWshop.com Even though it says "out of stock" I was able to add it to my cart place the order and I received confirmation.

At $16.99 plus shipping, I think I'll draw the line at this one and pass.  This is a tad out of control.  That's a $6.99 figure.

Could the greed be any more obvious?

Exactly.  That's a single basic carded 3.75" figure.  It should sell for $6-7.

I'm just wondering, is there any price that collectors won't pay for a figure?

If it were $19.99, would there be any fewer orders than a $16.99?  How about $24.99?  Don't worry, it's not too far off.

At this price, I'm out.  I've reached my limit on what I'm willing to pay for a single star wars figure.  I'm not willing to be ripped off at these levels.

Hey now to be fair it's only a 240% mark up... that Shadow Scout Speederbike was around 250% mark-up, so this is a deal in comparison!   :P

Of course I'll buy a pair, but what about the "pre" cyborg Grievous??  Is he going to be an exclusive as well?

Guys, don't forget we are getting a shiny new star case with each figure  :P  That's got to be worth the extra $10 they are charging us, right?!

I thought in the past some figures were able to be purchased either way :-\

I don't see why they don't make it an option to purchase with or without the star case. Or, for those who are Hyperspace members, throw the case in for free and/or charge a lower price for the figures themselves.

I guess that would required customer service and recognition of customer loyalty.

I don't think there used to be an option??  All I know is every figure I received from them came with a creased/stressed card and a dented bubble on EVERY order.  Even if you're an opener - does it not make you feel better that you're opening a pristine piece?  Maybe not, but I would.

If it was a normal $6.50 Target/Wally/TRU release I'd seriously consider it since the design looks cool ... but $17 + shipping is just ******* dumb. Pass.

On the bright side, it's an original sculpt, not a glorified repaint like the recent Shadow Troopers or the Lava figures and Target Trooper of yore.
