I still need to pick up one of these sets...  >:( I just do not want to pay such high prices. Maybe soon I will find a set for a good price.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

I've had a pre-order sitting with one of the e-tailers for many months now for a couple sets of Wave 2 of these cantina figures - for about $18 each, I believe.  No word on it as of yet.  I'm not going to pay anything more than that on them, though I'm pretty sure they'll eventually be picked up by someone (probably Target or KB) as an exclusive, and distributed sometime later next year.  I'd definitely try to hold off on paying too much for them right now if you can.  That's my hunch.

But the Kitik figure is definitely at the tops of everyone's 'wants' lists right now, for obvious reasons...  Hopefully all will eventually be rewarded for their patience (except for Scott, that is)...   :-*

Yeah, I'm personally holding off on these for a wide-spread distribution, just because I'm stubborn.  It's very unlikely that these would NEVER be released at this point.  Someone's bound to pick them up.

 Thats fricken nuts !!    I used to look at their site for prototypes but I felt they were a little pricy on those but that BIN is just plain crazy if someone pays it.

Just to be curious, I bid on it (since it was at $9.99 at the time and not at the reserved amount), but since I can't afford to pay an outrageous price, I only bid it to $27.  I'm sure the reserve is at least $80.  The Buy it Now price doesn't have to be the reserve, does it?

I wouldn't buy these on ePay.  The only reason they're difficult to get is because WalMart bailed on them.  Seriously, be patient and there's a possibility that they might show up at either Target, KayBee, or even through the Star Wars Fan Club ( those are all strongly rumored, nothing definite).

I agree that the 1st round of Cantina Packs would have flown off the pegs like they were on fire if new aliens like Hem Dazon, Kitik, and Myo were included instead of Momaw for a 2nd time, Ponda for a 3rd time, and Greedo for a 3rd time.  Unfortunately, members of retail management are not Star Wars collectors and could not have known that the 2nd Wave of Cantina sets would have sold much much better than that 1st round of crap.
 
Kitik has to be released somehow now that it's prototyped and everything.  It might just be slapped onto a SAGA card.

If Kitik gets released, I'll be happy. I'd like a Evazan that isn't doing the splits, but it really isn't that important to me. Wuher was good enough the first time; no need to slap an ugly paint job on him. Of course, they did remove the glass from his hand, so that's an improvement.

Been awhile on that auction I posted with a reserve of $500. Well the reserve was met from a buyer in Japan.  :o  Feedback have been posted to both partys!

Yes.  You should.  Nice pieces and all but yes.  

I think they'll still show up so why not turn a hefty profit (look honey a new car seat for the baby and a signature MR Vader saber too) and become available to you again.
