According to a report from Rebelscum - sales of this set are now lottery based, so regardless of how long you wait in line or whatnot, in order to purchase one, you have to win the lottery.

Star Wars Action News posted on facebook that there is no lottery/raffle system for the DS Set:

Yeah I've been out, but the ticket system just made sure you got your DS set, but that's good for the people in line.  The raffle was a rumor spreading fast on the show floor and the "Hasbro Ticket" line was leading some to believe it.  Good thing for the people there.  Seems like there won't be many (any?) left after the show still though.

Same here. 

I haven't been paying attention... other than the Death Star boxed set thing, is there a Comic Con exclusive for Star Wars?

Any word on whether there were some of these left after the show?    :-\

Thanks Jay.  Do you know if there is a limit to the number that you can purchase?  Wondering if a Minnesota group purchase is in order...

I noticed this on GalacticHunter last night:

Quote
Hasbro did allocate a small portion, probably "less than 1000 pieces", for sale at HasbroToyShop.com this Tuesday morning.

So, if you want this better start clicking on HTS bright and early to make sure you don't miss them...  (in fact, you might want to maybe even start trying today just to be safe?)

Believe me, I've been checking in regularly.  I just know its going to hit on the off hour or two that I can't get in to check.  I have a nice block of occupied time this afternoon, so anyone else who wants them should be checking in then.  ::)

Assuming they don't hike the price, it should be $130 plus tax plus shipping.

130 $ is an average 10.83 $ per figure

But Hasbro lists single figures at 8.99 on its online shop,
so it woul cost 108 $ in total

The key of the thing is how desirable results the death star lids at 22 dollars
for collectors. Hardly the lids could become a playset, their primary function is to display.

I think the folding Death Star has come to anticipate a new rerelease of the C3PO or Vader collector cases, even this is the first Death Star case (nice), then a spherical one will challenge sculptorsījob.

Its actually not a bad deal IMO.  I would get all those figures single carded if I could.  My math skills are rusty, but if you figure about $140 for 14 figures (12 vintage and 2 mini exclusives), then you're only shelling out $10 a figure.  That's about what you'd pay for a case through an online retailer.
