Well - I ordered myself two from SWS just now.

I may regret it when I see it available at a much cheaper price somewhere else. However, I know for a fact that somewhere else won't be a local comic-book (i.e. brick-and-mortar scalper) shop.

Perhaps Entertainment Earth will sell it for less, but I doubt it.

And to top it all off, they used the POTF2 Bossk - who isn't bad, but the Saga one is a tad better....

You know, in all fairness, the POTF2 Bossk is actually one of about five figures that still holds up great, sculpt-wise, when compared with the current stuff.  I actually like the head on the POTF2 version a lot better than the Saga/OTC one, and if it weren't for the articulation on the newer one, I'd take the POTF2 version any day of the week.

The one that gets me is the 300th Boba Fett being repackaged again.  My argument with it being repackaged for the fourth time isn't that it decreases the value of the 300th Fett from the POTJ line financially, but more from a "special" standpoint. 

The 300th Fett was, top to bottom, a great figure to commemorate a much more feasible milestone and was supposed to be a special release.  Now, it's been rereleased twice already and now a third time with little to no changes to it, thus kind of taking away from the specialness of the 300th packaging (for me at least).  I don't know if that made any sense, but I guess it would be like rereleasing the 500th Vader in a Battle Pack but without the meditation chamber. 

That being said, the 300th Fett looks kind of silly standing in an action pose alongside the other five neutrally posed bounty hunters.  Maybe Piett's voice was loud enough for everyone to hear him.   :D

Still, 35 bucks seems like a great price for this set, considering it gives people a shot at Vader and all six bounty hunters in one fell swoop.  I won't be buying it, but I think it's a good idea for people who don't have all of these guys already.

DP, I guess it's a good deal for someone who doesn't have these figures or wants a unique boxed display... I'll be passing on this too though.  I already have all of these figures loose (in some cases, 7-8 of certain ones through getting cheap loose figures for customizing).

 :P

You know, it's a pretty good value for $35.  Too bad shipping will be close to $10.  It's tempting, but I've already spent enought money this month (or year for that matter).

Not to mention the fact that I got hosed on the carded OTC Wedge figure.  Buying it from swshop.com and then seeing it at newforce for $5 cheaper....

I'm a sucker. I would have eventually picked one of these up, but when I saw the limited quote, I wound up ordering one ASAP. :P

Just did the same thing, Anthony. Paranoia is a powerful sales tool.

Newforce Comics now has these for pre-order for $27.99.

Can one cancel a Starwars shop order? Is it easy?

Just send the customer service an e-mail and ask them to cancel it.  It takes them a few days to get back to you, but as long as it's a pre-order, I've never had a problem with them when I was trying to cancel an order...

Guess we better move this thread to the Saga forum...

Wow.  This set sure looks a lot nicer now!

Here was the "old" mock-up:




And here is what we are actually getting:



I am actually thinking about grabbing this set now.  I really like the way this new box is laid out - makes it a bit nicer display peice IMHO.

Interesting--they flipped Zuckuss and 4-LOM again (or is that 4-LOM and Zuckuss?). . .

I should order one, they are only making 10K pieces - I could turn around and sell mine in a year for $250.

I ordered mine online and they claim it's in stock as well, so I should have my hands on this set quickly.  Should be a very cool display piece.
