Well that is exactly it because by next week even if they go down to $1 they will be no good because the offer expires.

I got a set at a Walmart a couple months back for $5.50 and I just got the set today and I love it. Now I see why people want this Chewie he is an awesome figure.

After getting the set I would love to get another 1 or 2 of them. A walmart near me has these still for $15.00 a piece which is too expensive for me I am thinking about taking one of them over to customer service and telling them that the sets expire at the end of the month and will then be worth nothing to them, to see if they are willing to drop the price. Has anyone else tried this or considered trying this? Because if they dont sell the sets soon then they become garbage to them.

Yay! I got one today for $9. I think that the goodies inside alone made it worth it. Not bad, especially since I'm now a member of the STAR WARS SPACE CLUB  8)

I just got mine yesterday for $9 as well.  They'd been holding at $19 for the last couple months.  But I held out until the drop.

So, after sending away my certificate, I decided to go through my Saga-OTC figures, which were in a really big bin, and fill in the rest of the display. So I have all but 6 spots filled in. Here's a rundown of what figures I used:
-Han Solo=OTC Cantina Han
-Stormtrooper=Stormtrooper from ROTJ DVD 3-pack
-Darth Vader= Vader from ROTJ DVD 3-pack
-Death Squad Commander= Veers with helmet, but no chest armor
-Jawa= OTC short Jawa w/ rifle
-Ben Kenobi=OTC Cantina Scene figure
-C-3PO=Hoping to add a TSC 3PO to take that place.
-Sand People= Hoping to put in a VTSC Sand Person
As for Luke, Leia, Artoo, and Chewie, well, I'm going to use the figures that I sent away for. I'll be sure to get some pictures up once the set-up is filled in, or perhaps when I get the Early Bird figures.

I fired off another 3 EB orders earlier today (3/31), just in the nick of time.  Two more for me, and one for Ook, since my Walmart's had a slew of them sitting around at $9 a pop for the last few weeks.  I think I've ordered 5 now for myself, two originally at full price, and three at $9.  That ANH styled VOTC Chewie is just too cool to not have several extras of, especially now that it's under $10.  The Leia's alright too, but if anyone's in need of that craptastic Luke or R2, give me a holler...  ;)

Hope they don't run out of the things, and that us procrastinators don't get stiffed!  :P
