Makes me weep.  I left a pile on the pegs for other collectors (long gone now, though I may be able to scoop up a Lando) and actually returned a Lando and a Madine ::)

I guess these people don't know about their presence in the OTC line. :-*

That seller sold another set prier to this one:

General Madine+Lando Death Star+Solo

Another auction sold for $43.50.

GENERAL MADINE LANDO CALRISSIAN HAN SOLO

Lando & Madine can still be found here but Solo, never saw him!  :'(

And for that, I'll be eternally grateful, and potentially forever indebted to you Dave!  Still haven't had even a sniff of them, outside of one Han (at Sav-on drugstore) and one Lando, I think.  So you saved my ass, by completing my carded and loose Saga collections in one shot, with your help!  Thanks bud!   :-*

(could still use a few extras though...   ;))

But yeah, for you openers, just be patient, and hopefully you'll be able to snag 'em in a few weeks in the OTC line!

My F'n Madine's  hand broke when I was doing a review for him.

Great figure...   crappy plastic...

I like this wave, and they're excellent custmizing materials and army building fodder, but damned if they didn't short us on them.  They still hit here too though.  Peple find them from time to time and post.

I need a couple more of each, but really need a Madine.  I hope their OTC run's substantially better than Saga has been.

Several months back I found a Madine and Lando at a Walmart.  Thank God the cards were bent or they would have probably been bought by someone else.  Of course I opened them.  Very nice figures.

 :P

We've never had a sign of these figures around here either, and I'm not sure if we will at this point.  Luckily, Jeff helped me out with the Han and Madine, and I'm holding out to see if I can snag the Lando when he's released on an OTC card.  I guess the tradition continues of the last wave of any line being pretty tough to find in the Star Wars collecting world.

I happened across the Saga End wave twice, as well as pre-ordering the case from NewForce.  Found a total of 4 Hans, 4 Madines, and 2 Lando.   That was it, and they all hit in the same week.

Looking back, I guess I was extremely lucky find as many as I did... and Brian was lucky I grabbed the extras that I did see.  ;)

Actually found the wave sitting at Target last week while they were doing a reset. Must have been sitting in the back collecting dust while Barris clogged the shelf. That was the only time I'd ever come across them at retail. Even with that much scarcity around here it doesn't make them worth 71.00 to me. To each his own, I guess.

There's still sporatic mentions of them hitting here on Saga cards.  I'd be happy to find THOSE on the pegs.  I'm not that lucky though generally.

Madine's one of my all-time favs at this point, even thugh the one I have brke while reviewing the friggin' thing.

I want a Madine but I'm not going to spazz out about not having it just yet. I'm sure he'll show up before long. I found the Lando and Han fairly easily - didn't eve get the Han. Madine is a must-have.

I managed to get a General Lando at a show for $10.  I think people are going a little batty over this wave.
