This was kind of cute at first, but I'm really bored with these multi-color retro things.

If they want to do weird retro things they should make different retro cards of the same figure - Uzay, tri-logo, etc.

6 of them doesn't bother me so much.  It was the EIGHTEEN Vader's (36 if you count the 2 greens) that was a mess.

That said, these are stupid and are taking up a lot of room.

On the card, those Vaders sell for $100 now.  I should have bought more.

I guess these are the new Skittles Figures. 

No thanks.

Anyone see a listing for it yet?  I haven't been able to find on Target's site.

Got two, my wife ordered me two... hopefully they're all different and I can just buy two on eBay.

Got my two.  Waiting for confirmation email from Target.  This may be the first time I got any of these from the actual retailer.

I put a Chewie in my cart, then went to check out and the sticker shock of over $20 for the thing with shipping made me change my mind. Maybe if I see him available online or in a store...maybe, but most likely not. I think I am getting priced out of picking stuff up for fun.

With the red card 5% off and free shipping for orders over $25, getting two of them cost $29.xx.

Done with these I think - Maybe one random one, but there's too many variations and kind of tired of them now.

My thing is, it kind of sucks to make a thing with six versions and then only let people order 2. 

They should know the demand outpaces the amount they make... and they've done this three times now.  They should know how to gauge demand so that they make enough that they're possible to find for whoever wants however many they want, without making so many that they're on clearance later.
