No word at all Solrac...  Do you have a picture you can share with us of your purchase?  Nobody's even 100% positive what figure Fox is (if it's the commander we pictured recently from the CW 3D line or whatnot).

Gotta pic?

Isn't $12.99 the normal figure price for exclusives?

Pretty much.  Except there's no reason it should be more than $6.99.  It's a regular basic figure just like any other.

If you accept the premise it should be $12.99 in the first place, then I guess this is a "normal" price point, sure.

But it's in a fancy plastic case!  Surely that's worth double the price of regular figures!   :P


Thankfully Target loves to clearance things.  I'll hold out and try to pick him up for 50% off ($6.50ish range) in a few weeks when the clearance starts....  normally I try to support Target's exclusives at full price, but these "twice the price" exclusive figures suck compared to a lot of the other Target exclusives (like the "2 figures for $10" Order 66 sets).

It actually looks pretty decent.  I won't buy it but pretty nice looking at least.  Yeah, hopefully Target will stock a ton of them and clearence them in a few weeks.

I'm with you.  Not interested unless it hits a heavy discount.  Who is pricing this stuff anyway?  Let's price two figures in specially designed packaging that fits fewer items per case at about $10, but offer up a repaint figure in already existing packaging that fits more items per case and is pegable for about $7.  Oh wait, let's put a plastic case on it and charge $13 instead.   ::)
