Yeah, I'd have run...  actually, I did.  I saw these, twice, at my local Go! store and yeah...  Nothing in me would've bought them.  Though they sold out, both times.  I know who bought them and he's flipping them on Ebay with some semi-shady listing wording ("rare", "cancelled", etc.) to make a buck.  It's his side business, in the same mall, so whatever, but yeah...

I was really hoping for $5 TIE Pilots.  Little did I know.  :o

I should've shopped around checking prices on other stuff at the store.  They had a lot of toys but I didn't think to check what they cost before I left.

I'll admit - if they had some sort of Han Solo in this wave, I would have paid $20 for it to keep my carded Han collection complete.

Paying $20 is a really, really dumb idea for most of these.  I feel bad for those who "have" to do it to keep up a complete carded collection.  :-\

I like how these look. Maybe it's just the newness or the comparative blah of TBS.

But, no, I haven't bought any at those crazy prices, and wouldn't keep them packaged if I got my hands on them for cheap.

Oddly enough I ran across the online exclusive wave of Droid Factory figures today at a TRU outlet store.  It's the same wave that was offered by Amazon, but it's still a little odd to see these in stores at all.
