The Gamestop near me wasn't handing out the figure until midnight. I got there about fifteen minutes before midnight and was told to go inside and pay for the game. After I paid for the game, they had me wait outside in a line of about 25 guys. They then let in five people at a time to give them their game and free figure. Most if not all of the people in line where video game players and not star wars collectors. Most though the toy was pretty silly and wern't there for the figure. Someone leaving the store gave me a stormtrooper as he left the store. Now that I think about it, I could have hung out outside the door and asked people for their stormtrooper and gotten mutiples.

I was told that I wasn't even guaranteed a figure by reserving the game and showing up at midnight so I decided to pass.  Thankfully a local was able to snag some extras as apparently most gamers don't care about SW or action figures, but they wanted the game badly enough to show up at midnight. 

Nice to finally close the book on TAC though.   :)

They are going for $20+ on eBay, although each auction lists it as Rare, or something, even though these about 30 up right now.  That doesn't make it common, just funny to see something described as rare, 30 times in a row.

Give 'em a year.

You'll be able to snag one for $8 plus shipping.

Yes, and even then, you'll be paying $6 too much.

I haven't been paying enough attention lately... I bought the game at TRU and got the $20 giftcard, so that's cool and all... but now I have another not-in-stores item to track down.

Is the $20 TRU gift card with purchase of the game still going on? If it is, I think that's the route I'll go to buy the game.

I think that was just for a week.   :-\

The same body for grey shadow stormie (from tfu 2 troopers with emperor) the blackhole or black stormie needs a removable helmet version.
