Time for a bump, anyone else curious why there has only been drips and drops of these shipping it seems? I'm guessing maybe in part because Brian's Toys has to handle probably a lot of orders I'd imagine.
I have 3 on order... none have shipped yet. Little nervous.
On Spirit Of's point about $25 figures to get you obscurity...
I'm not opposed to it ONLY if it's like Jocasta's been done. If they got us a new Owen/Beru, or Cliegg, and they came with something nice as an accessory PLUS the usual guns/coats/whatever they SHOULD have, I'm more ok with that concept. $25, for what you're getting with Jocasta, isn't as bad as people think. She has the Dooku bust with the holocron under it, plus she has the rest of her Jedi Junk she should have, and fairly elaborate packaging.
That said, I'd do without elaborate packaging happily if the figure were more in line with $15 to $18 then. Just a regular card to match other figures in the line they come out in, that would suit me. I don't need a clamshell. Especially for something obscure. ICMG sure, but Jocasta? or the Lars clan? Meh. Give me them in a plastic baggie for all I care, but a simple card to match the line they're released during would be fine too, or always on a Vintage Card would suit me as well. Simplify the process that way.
I just think the little bust and stuff add to Jocasta... She has a little more umph because of that. Come to think of it I wish all Jedi came with a bust from the library. That'd be damn cool.
It helped too, free shipping on this figure from Brian's Toys. I can't say I'm unhappy with them getting this. If it works, I'm game for more.
Doallyn and a couple of Spirit's though, I'd rather just see in the line. They're less boring, at least to me anyway. Cool aliens are always cooler than old women librarians with bitchy attitudes.
