Minnesota must be the place to be today.

I hit an Obi-Wan UGH at a Target as well. Thanks to Jay for the tip or I probably would have passed on a run today, as it has been so discouraging.
I had to ask a redshirt to check the back room based on the scanner info. Another employee followed him in back after hearing us talking. I'm sure he held the rest of the case for himself, because the first guy came back with only two Ib Wan's (one a UGH). I thought about complaining, but getting them to go in back is tough enough, and may be I can run into this guy again some day when I need something.

My silver figure was a RFT, and, amazingly, they found a way to make the RFT suck just a little more.

Over the past 2 days I've seen the following UGH's at 2 different Los Angeles Targets -

Boba Fett
Snow Trooper
Han Carbonite
Darth Vader
Anakin
Obi-Wan

Due to the morning competition, I was only able to obtain the last 3...but who's complaining?

Man, I am so glad I am a loose collector... I guess if I come across any of these I can pick some up to help friends out who need them... but I still think these are going to push the hobby in the wrong direction.

The whole galactic hunt thing is only going to make scalpers happy.
You are never alone when there's a clone.

I think I would love to find some of these and open them in front of a scalper at a store.

The Rebel Fleet Trooper SUCKS.  He's always gonna suck, he's never not gonna suck.  He can suck harder than he normally does too, don't be fooled.  He'll sneak up on you and BAM, before you know it you have a Fleet Trooper worse than the last one you had and you don't even know it.

This reminds me of when Topps baseball cards introduced the "gold" variants in 1992.  Say Barry Bonds had 50,000 cards produced, they'd make say 2,000 of them have a stupid gold leaf stripe on it.  This Star Wars packaging variant reminds me of that.
If you vote for me all of your wildest dreams will come true.  Thank you.

And one of the highlights of the 2006 Saga collection is the great cardback art. Now the "chase" figures have the shiny stands next to the figures, obscuring the card back almost completely.  ::)

Thanks a lot, Hasbro. You've created a scalper's paradise.

UGH Scalpfest on ebay

I seriously hope no one buys the BINs that are at 24.99, 49.99, or $65. Unbelievable.

Honestly, it's not as bad as I thought (despite the Vader that ended at $76)....

I was guessing the average would be $50 in the beginning.

Regardless of the profit margin for the scalpers, it is disgusting.
And what's worse, it was intentional.
