Fett is back on Amazon at the moment for $23, which isn't terrible if you can get the free shipping.

Aaaaaand it's gone

Checked this morning and found The Black Series Boba Fett 6"...1 left in stock.  Picked him up along with a $10 Leia and free shipping.  Score!

I received my Fett and Slave Leia from Amazon today.  I was worried about paint apps given all the comments on here, but they both look fantastic.  No screwy eyeballs or smudges.  The Fett cost me a few bucks extra @ $23, but he looks crazy cool.

Opened my 6" Slave girl Leia Christmas morning. This is an ok figure. Her eyes make her look like an Egyptian hieroglyphic. She definitely has child-bearing hips. Wow! Could they have made those a little smaller?  She is kind of a let down.

I opened mine this weekend as well.  I really don't mind the joints or hips and the paint job is great.  My biggest gripe is the face sculpt.  I haven't watched Jedi in a while, but I thought Leia pretty much looked either helpless and scared or angry and derermined wearing the metal bikini.  My figure looks like she's zoning out at a school lecture.  Why the abstract, bored sculpt, Hasbro?

I was trying to stay away from this line, but then my brother got me the x-wing luke and Sandtrooper for xmas.  Now I'm trying to track down Fett, but haven't had any luck so far.  And the pictures of the new stormies make me think I need two.

Any word on when/if Fett will get rereleased? Or should I just buy the set of wave 2 from BBTS?

I gave up, and found a reasonably priced one on ebay.  Price was only $2 more than retail (though I did have to pay $8 in shipping).  Good enough I guess.  Now the fun starts with trying to track down stormtroopers.  I want 2, so I can have them flanking Vader when he releases.

No store near me that carries these has a Han Solo...  anywhere.

I know everyone dumped on them over it, but was he REALLY a bad carry-forward?  Boba needs it too, no denying that, but I see scads of Wave 2 at Target, at least 3 of Greedo and Leia at any one I go to.  K-Mart has Leia and Greedo too...  Han?  I haven't seen him in quite some time.

I predicted he was a pretty solid choice (still not denying Fett is too), and I was right.  He displays multiple ways, he's an awesome sculpt, he's a major hero that is popular with not just collectors but random fans walking past toys and thinking, "My goodness, that would look cool on my desk!", as well as kids (though $20 figures aren't really for kids I figure).

Not a fan of OWK or Ani getting a repack myself, but Han?  I totally think Hasbro made a right call there.

Used SPRING14 promocode at HTS tonight to score Bespin Luke and Obi-Wan for $15.99 each, plus free shipping.  8)

I'm just tired of waiting for these to hit Target and I know I'll never get to TRU early enough to score their random 1 case when it arrives. This seemed like too good a deal to pass up. Now I just need that $%* Stormtrooper!

Is this code one-use or can I use it now and then use it again if the Stormie comes back in stock if I order the Luke now?

Thanks for the tip! Nice to get Luke for less than retail.
