Well, in a fit of panic and impatience, I bit the proverbial bullet today, and ordered 2 sets of these three Wave 2 Cantina figures from Amok Time
. The 2 sets (6 figures in total) ran me a grand total of $113.98 with
$10 shipping, which comes out to exactly $19 a figure. That SUCKS, but it's the best price I've seen on them yet. But as a good buddy recently suggested to me, C.Y.A.!
I'm sure these will eventually trickle out to some additional outlets (probably just e-tailers) for a cheaper price, but for once, it just wasn't worth the risk to me. I'll eventually pick up a third set of them as well, but I'll be more patient on that one and score those for a much better price eventually, I'm sure...
Here's where I ordered mine: Amok Time's Wave 2 Cantina Sets
Here's the link to the ones at Brian's Toys, which are priced just a tad higher (scroll down past the $200 Silver Boba Fett
): BT's Cantina Sets
So who else is planning on picking this second wave up? You going to bite the expensive e-tailer bullet, or exercise some appropriate patience and hope to score them for a more reasonable price somewhere down the line...?
I can't even begin to explain how disappointed I am that the Cantina line will most likely end now. A couple curved pieces for the end of the bar (the "U" portion), and the distillery for the bar's interior, along with 3 more fresh
choices for Aliens... Oh, what a thing of beauty it would've been! This really seemed like a sure fire thing, but Hasbro somehow still goofed it all up... By OCB:
This is a line which makes perfect sense for the Fan Club...
Exactly what I just posted in another thread Scott! I think it would be a perfect product pickup for the Fan Club! Hopefully Vic will consider it, if he hasn't already...
