When I say hard to get, I still got one for a very fair price on Ebay... One of the only figures I ever bought on Ebay that I didn't own already in some capacity and get for its "cost". That said, it was sold only at that one Disney convention you had to pay a lot to get into, only at Disney Land (IIRC), so I think I paid $20-ish shipped? That's not bad. That's quite tolerable to me, haha.
I mean they cost like $14 or so as it is I think? So you figure the shipping fees, this person's time/energy and cost to get into that show... It was a quite fair price. I don't think prices on them spiked or anything either, they're still around.
The droid's a very cool color pattern too... Looks like something royalty would have with them. Very snazzy.
I love these droids though. I, as my buddies who help me get them have said, am a droid-a-holic at this point.
God help me if they start doing other build a droid things like 3PO's or whatever.
