Sweet, says they are in stock too, saves me from dealing with the extras in a case...which is also another reason why I love the BBTS Pile o Loot :-*

All the ones I see say Pre-Order?

Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.

Yeah, nice to see those over at HTS.  I had a set preordered at BBTS, but didn't necessarily want the clones - so this works out well.  I think the set of 6 at BBTS was like $90, and I got all the figures I wanted from this wave (and duplicates of the OT ones) for like $84 shipped - looking forward to getting these.  It is so nice not to have that huge lull in figures like we've had the past few years during this time.

I'm literally not buying any of the Wave 6 figures I want on HTS right now because it comes out to like $12 shipped.

That's just too much money for this.

Buying a set from BBTS makes no sense for $20 more you get another 6 figures which you can return. I have 2 of this case on order from them but I did order the max HTS would let me on the clones x2 Phase 2 and x2 AT-RT Drivers. I also grabbed another Luke because I will swap some part with the SS version to make the colors consistent and I want to use that Head on the Luke Bespin figure.

Thanks for the promo code shmashwitdaclub !

I got 8 figures for $77 shipped (w/ the discount) that is $9.60 a figure...same as Target with Tax...

I bought 5 figures and it came to $50.40, which is still cheaper than my high taxed state. Use the code and it works out great!

Ugh.  I'm going to continue to try to resist.  I probably won't be able to.

Just saw the code now though, that's a little helpful.

I'm just having a mental block to buying at the new pricepoint though.  I have zero hesitation at the 6.99 level.

Same here.  I haven't even lifted a finger to order or grab anything "new" at these higher prices,  and so far...so good   :)

I'm reluctant to get extras (I have a case on order), so I see where you're at with it Dressel...  I'm maybe going to order one or two, I don't know.  I'd rather have had an extra Lando and he's sold out, so I doubt I cave and order anything.

I got one of everybody.  I go back and forth on the price, too.  I don't know.  I have no backbone, apparently.  Five or six years ago, when I had no money at all, this would not have been a debate.  I think that now that I have the money, I'm spending it.  Probably not smart though.

I missed the boat again... I'm getting sick of looking around for these and Hasbro never has enough of them at a time to make it worth ordering (that I am quick enough to get at least).

Where's the best place to buy cases from nowadays?  I used to order from Kebco a few years ago but I guess that ship has sailed.
