Prices change as fast as gas prices on Amazon. I saw Wedge for $4.99 now he is back to $9.99.

they were all part of a special toy sale on amazon - they might be doing another one before Christmas.  But yes, the price of things on amazon can fluctuate all the time.  check out this website if you have never seen it:  camelcamelcamel.com

it tracks prices of items on amazon - all you have to do is put in the items url at amazon

sorry if this is old news to everyone   :)

$3 figures
« Reply #952 on: December 21, 2012, 03:28 PM »
I responded to a recent postat PSWCS.  The had a handful of VC figs at about $3 ea.  Bought 4. 

A few notes...

1) gohastings.com loads up my eail with ads. Had torespond to stp that.
2) Thyship in a mailer envelope,s 2 showed up minty, 2 had dinged bubbles.

Just a waring in case you have to have minty figs.

Not complaining as for $3 it's still a decent deal.  (Ended up bing abou $4ea. once shipping is figured in)

I buy CD's occasionally from Go Hastings on eBay...did not realize they dabbled in toys too, good to know. I only had a problem with 1 item I ordered there and they issued me a prompt refund in full, so no complaints here...

I'm guessing Bob was on his phone.  I've been posting from mine more often too.  He was talking about a post at the PSWCS group (PA group's email list).

$4.99 Rebel Fleet Troopers at AMazon currently...super saver shipping qualified, too. Kithaba is under $6, too.  $4.12 super battle droids (vintage) as well.

All the remaining Wave 17 figures have gone back up in price, except the the episode 1 repacks.
