OTC Floor Display

As much as I'm beginning to despise the line, the packaging is awesome...I hope its enough to suck in "new collectors"

Actually, judging by the $5.99 Target SRLPs for the basic OTC figures (that GH mentioned today), that's not a bad deal at all.  You're pretty much getting a free display with the figures is what it works out to...   8)

Contemplating it myself...

I guess so...Wally World is supposedly still $5

EE is almost $6 a fig after shipping so $6 x 24 = $144

Ordered.

Curse the endless circle of love/hate for this line.

EDIT: Should mention that it came out to $162.36 after CA tax (willcall shipping's free). That's 6.77 a figure out the door for the figures alone. Hopefully I can unload my extras that will pile up from this and drive down the cost of the cardboard display.

Am I the only one that finds it highly amusing (yet highly saddening at the same time) that the figure that is shown in the shots, taking up all the display space, is Han?  

After all, I have a feeling we're going to be seeing a LOT of this figure for the rest of the year, so maybe Hasbro's clairvoyant or something. ;)

This is really nice.  I suppose the price is fair.  Too bad I don't have the funds or space right now.  Sigh.

Just noticed that these "Floor Displays" were in-stock and shipping.

Jared, did you pick yours up yet?  Worth it or not?

Pretty sure he hasn't yet, but that sounds like a good time to get together to swap stuff again out here, eh Jared?   ;)

In fact, I wonder if Jared's completely forgotten about that thing...  ****load more extras in there.  Man, you're in trouble now J!  Guess the question is, how bad do you want the display, 'cause I KNOW you don't need most/any of those figures anymore...   :-\

We must be riding a cosmic EE zen wave Jeff, I was just over checking my orders and noticed that too, and fired a mail off to Matt asking if he needed like 4 Biker Scouts.  ;)

They didn't call today so I'll check with them in the morning, and hopefully go get it. This came in weeks earlier than their site listed. My wallet wasn't ready.  Basically all the figures in it are extras, and a chance to upgrade the quality of some cards for me. I'll put the display together when its here, take a couple pics, and let ya know what I think. I probably have enough friggin' OTC Hans to fill it up just like the pic.  >:(

Then it gets disassembled and put into storage.

Got a chance to see Jared's OTC floor display today at lunch, which he had just picked up from EE.  Pretty cool!  Nice glossy black surface, and the header is very cool - almost worth it just by itself.  It's actually a bit different than the one pictured above.  Should make a pretty nice display piece.

But I'll let Jared tell you more about it...  (with a pic or two, hopefully)   ;)
