Sounds like the Amazon exclusive Red Squadron Astromech 3-Pack has been popping in and out of stock the past two days - keep an eye on the link if you're interested in adding them to your collection...

Do you know what the price is on this?  It just says "unavailable" with no price listed.

I'd kinda like more droids, but the price is going to have to be lower than $60.  Ideally its closer to $40 for me to bite.

If that's the case go ahead and ignore the link until about six months from now when they are trying to clear out the left-overs that didn't sell at $59.99. :P

Yeah, that's what I figured.  I guess the good thing is that these do tend to eventually come down in price if you're patient.

I'm not sure the math on the latest multi-packs (6" and 3.75") but it seems we've lost almost all semblance of a discount.  It seems to me that in the past, and in most other areas, you get a discount when you buy multiples. 

I'm not an expert, but these look like straight up repaints of existing molds.  This should have been super cheap to make.  I just feel like Hasbro/Amazon is gouging us badly on these at $60.

These are back in stock at Amazon.  I just ordered a set for myself.

Why are they only ever in stock for five minutes before selling out? Is the factory sending them one at a time?

Been such a pain in the ass trying to catch this thing at the right time, I don't even really want it anymore. Amazon sucks.

I missed out the first couple of times they were in stock.  But I'm glad that I was able to get in an order a few days ago.  It just took a little persistence.

Well, hopefully my waiting game pays off and they slash the price on this thing come Black Friday. Or Cyber Monday even.

Picked one up at the $41.99, but it was still a nice deal.
