Awesome, thanks Jeff.  Saving 20 bucks is great and I get all my EE stuff sent to Jim anyway, so nothing but bonus here for me.

I'll go cancel my order now.  And adjust my march towards ten thousand (2005 collector's challenge)

So do you think these will end up being clearanced at some point? Would it be a good idea to wait and see, or do you think they will a sell out?

A different question comes to my mind:  Will these be released on individual cardbacks at the new ($6.99) price point?  I hope so, but have to wonder. 

As to your question Dave, my guess is close to selling out.  It's a figure we all want and collectors usually don't quibble over a buck or two per figure.  Worse, they look nice packaged and I'm already thinking of getting a second set (must show restraint) to open - that's where my hope for single carded stuff comes in.

Well, this one isn't like the Rebel Fleet Troopers or Endor Troopers...  :-\

1, - It's an exclusive
2. - It's a super-articulated figure that was VHTF when it was released and still sells well on eBay
3. - No one really knows how many they'll get.

EE isn't really prone to clearancing their exclusives, but that doesn't mean it won't happen.   :-\

Holy ****.  And ****.

Why couldn't they just put them in the plain ol' white mailer boxes...   :'(

Now I'm in for packaged AND Loose.  All 4 packaged, and 3 of the 4 loose.  Ouch.

I guess I'll just go with a master case, with 3 of each.

Anyone want one of my sets?  I live right near EE, so I can save a little on shipping by picking them up in person, though I DO get hit with Sales Tax here in CA, so it's almost a wash.  So if anyone wants in on one complete set of all 4, let me know!  It'd be $108.25, plus shipping.

I shouldn't be doing this, but yep, I'll take your extra set.  Damn you Hasbro and your cool exclusives.

Okee doke Mikey!  Just placed my order for a case, so your one-third share of the total will be $108.25, plus shipping from me to you.  Cool?  Should save you a little bit at least, going in on a case, and one that I can pick up in person and then ship to you for cheaper (if that helps make you feel any better :-\).

Still trying to stomach the $216.49 blow myself!  Ugh.  Right at the ROTS release too.  Perfect timing...  And ya' gotta hand it to EE, they sure know how to reel us in!  Nice packaging to snag both carded and loose collectors, multiple Clone colors, and then the whole clean and dirty trick.  Damn, they're good!   :'(

But aside from the whopping costs involved, you've all gotta admit that this is a pretty damned cool exclusive - all 4 of them!  But yeah, still tough to army build at those prices, but at least the option is there, and in multiple flavors and cleanliness, no less.   8)

Cool.  Thanks Matt!  Time to start putting a little away each week to cover this.

YES! the rumors were true!  They cost an arm and a leg, but I just love these guys.  No more paying premium prices on ebay anymore.

With what I ordered, that statement "Grand Army of the Republic" should apply. :P

I'm glad Hasbro finally has heard the cries of us collectors to bring this awesome fig back+ w/different ranks/variants, even if the price is a bit steep.

At least they are made available for those who want them.
