I just talked to the seller.  The shipping is ACTUAL shipping.  He said that was an estimate on the auction and he would refund any extra.  I just bought 20.  They're down to 45 so jump on it now!

Great, and I just bought 20.  Just curious how much these cost when they were out before?  Mine ended up being around $4.50 a piece and I'm expecting at least a little refund in return.  I don't really need them either. One of those "just in case' things.

I doubt they`d be much cheaper than that after shipping and all.

There are supposed to come out at the end of this month and the price is ¥3150 = $28.75 for 20.  But the price is without shipping and is only available for people in Japan.

The shipping was high. I tried selling some a couple of years back but they were really heavy. 8 was about $25 to the States from Japan.

They do look thick and sturdy, too bad it costs so much to ship them.

OT: Do you ever see the Venom/Punisher chase kubrick around? Still
trying to track him down (got burned on a fake recently too  >:( )

I'd never buy one of those Venom-Punishers that weren't seled in the bag. Alot of fake ones around. I come across them quite often, but they are pretty expensie over here.

I got one that the seller promised was real, sealed.
When it got here, it had no guns in the bag & you could tell it was a knock off.
He refuses to refund me & I`m sure PayPal will not help (I`ve filed, but nothing yet).

My Rebo Band showed up today 8)

That's mighty cool for me, there's only one figure I REALLY want at this point and it's the darned Droids R2.  But I only need it loose, so I don't want to spend much. 

I still plan on someday getting the Series 1 Fett chase pieces plus a loose version of the carded Luke (but I can really do without this one since I have the early bird set).  But then I'd be as caught up as I want to be (once my Han stormie shows up - should be this week). 

Really not sure about the next box set and whether I'll get it or not.  Every time I go back and look at it it doesn't do much for me.  Ewok hatred aside, it just doesn't turn my crank.  I guess I'll wait and see if it settles out below $50 or so on ebay before buying that one.  I've a funny feeling it's going to be a bit of a dud.

Anyone have Vaders and Stormtroopers they're trying to get rid of?  Let me know.  I'm looking to buy a bunch.  Thanks!!!
