Yep, that is always the case with these new items. Check out this auction. This seller does the same, up & down. Just check out the listings purchases & how many times he has revised the listing.

Late last night, 2 sets finished. 1 went for $133.50 & the other for a nice low price of $112.50.

I sucked it up and bought one off knunt. I asked him awhile ago if he would be getting them and he said yes. When I saw them hit ebay I emailed him and he had 3 of them. Last I heard he had 1 left but that was last week.

I got it for $125 shipped. More than I wanted to pay but a whole lot less hassle then trying on ebay.

Just got my bill on the 2-pack.  It ended up costing me $80 after the price, currency exchange, shipping, and then wire transfer back to Japan.  Not quite the deal I was hoping for but its still a lot cheaper than eBay prices so I won't complain.

Parcel day today.  ;D

Sorry for the glare, it's still sealed in the plastic wrapping.  :P

Got my AotC Jango/Boba box set in the mail today.  Still a few things left on my shopping list, but it is nice to finally have this one in the collection.  Thanks again for the tip, Dale!  ;)

Did you end up getting one of the sets that was recently on ebay for $120 shipped?  That was a great deal.  I was hoping someone on the boards walked away with that set...

I just now noticed that this Jango from the 2-pack has a purple suit whereas the other Jangos have blue suits under all that silver armor.  I picked up a spare Jango recently (thanks Doc!) to use the helmet for display with the 2-pack version, when I noticed it doesn't really match him like it does the other versions.  I think it looks okay though.  (Tip: the helmet pops off, it's not glued on, but there sure is a good airtight seal to fight while doing so.  And, there's just a plain white kub head underneath.  I was sort of hoping for a face.  :D)

Yep... and it was even less than $120 thanks to one of those live.com bing.com (or whatever the heck MS is calling it these days) ebay/paypal rebates.   8)

I'd like to hear more about these rebates.  ;)

It used to be called Microsoft Live Search, now I guess they call it "bing" instead (don't know why they rebranded it).  Anyway, it doesn't always work (depends on when and where you buy), but when it does work you can save anywhere from 2% to 30% on an eBay w/Paypal purchase.

Thanks for the tip Jeff - I'm going to try this out.  Are you not able to see what you will save until you actually make the purchase on Ebay?  Looks like this is primarily tied to buy-it-now items if I'm searching correctly.

was wondering if anyone had all 3 Jangos that they could take pictures of? Just want to look at the differences.
