Selling currently shipping figures for more than retail is against the rules. Now before you get all crazy and defensive, I know that you purchased this from ebay for $15, but you should have posted that here in this thread as well, before the other forumites get the torches out and come after you.

I want to order a copy, just so I can re-sell it on ebay for $200 after it's taken down from Amazon.

Just needed to bump this thread since Jason hooked me up with an elusive Scorch figure I was craving... thanks Jason!!  ;D

And if you get any of those Grevious figures or the Skirmish packs at your store, you know where to find me :)

Woah... how cool is this?

Picked up another full set of VTSC. Now all I need from this wave are a pair of Biker Scouts, for my four-man squad.

Helped a friend pick up the Demise of Grievous and Skirmish in the Senate battlepack at the same Target - I got an employee to pull all three things, the Targets here in NJ have not been putting them out unless you ask.

Hey Pete, whioh Target(s) are you doing this at? All the Targets I've been to in NJ tell me that they can't get anything from the back room  ::)

OK, so it's been like 6 months since I sat down and did any kind of work on custom figures... but tonight I kinda got the "itch" and picked up an extra animated ARC Trooper that I had, re-positioned one arm, and re-painted him blue. I know Clones have been done to death, but I'm just not tired of doing them yet (plus I haven't done any in 6 months). And I'm always jonesing for new animated style figures... I just love this line.

After looking at the larger versions of the pics, I definitely seem to be a little out of practice with the paintbrush. Oh well, maybe I can get back into the swing of things, if I keep at it again.

I mean they are pretty much doing everything possible to ensure fair distribution of a Con Exclusive

That's true.

But why even have a Con Exclusive, only available to people who are attending a convention in one part of the world? Why not just make it a regular issue figure, if you know that it's going to cause such a backlash? Personally, I feel like GG and Sideshow, and anyone else that has these "Con Exclusives" don't really care about their customers. I'm sorry that I can't take a week off from work to fly out to San Diego for the SDCC, but that means I can't own one of these items? Why not make them exclusive through an online retailer, this way anyone across the US has a chance to order it?

I cannot believe the absolute meltdown conducted by the New York Rangers over the past two or three weeks. Three weeks ago I would have said they have a great chance to actually win the Stanley Cup, now I'm just happy they made it to the playoffs. The Devils look like they are gonna win against Montreal now, which would give them the Atlantic Division title, and push them up into third place, and push the Rangers down to sixth place, and end up with a Devils-Rangers first round. Devils on an eleven game win streak, and Rangers on a five game losing streak... doesn't give me much hope.

Jeff hooked me up with some new Utapau Clones, and they were shipped quick and packed well, as always. Thanks Jeff!!  ;D

This is a nicer promo than the EB set though. 

Let's be honest, most of us we're planning on buying a set of VOTC to open.

Plus, it's cool that we're getting a carded Georgie vs. a plain white mailer box.

Yeah, it is nicer than the EB set, by far... but now the problem is that I need a carded GL Stormie AND a loose GL Stormie... so I need to buy 3 sets of vTSC figures to get enough coupons to send in. So I'm gonna end up with an extra loose set that I don't really need.
