It's as hit/miss as retail at this point Dave.  I got imp navy commanders from china once, one having 2 left feet the other 2 right...  It worked out obviously but I was lucky.  In general they're just overproduction and not rejects or mistakes.  Honestly I've never seen that except maybe the guy selling all the chipped Mickey droids for cheap.

I haven't ordered from him in a few years, but I used to order a lot of army builders from him.  It's a lot like buying scratch and dent furniture IMO.  There may be something really small like a paint ap issue or a loose limb, or the figure may look pretty much like what you get right out of the package.  Personally, I always felt like there was something not quite right with the figures, even if I couldn't spot it. I'm fine with that if the figures are really cheap and I'm getting doubles...my 10th AT-ST Driver doesn't need to be perfect, especially if I can get him for $5 less. 

I've thought about using him for the BS figures too, but can't pull the trigger.  I'd rather pay a few bucks more for a packaged one or wait until the inevitable release.  It would definitely be nice to get these guys checked off the list though.

I bought a lot of stuff from him. Sometimes, you have to put the figure together or it's missing an accessory, but I've never been disappointed.

I got a Biker scout once with two right feet, double ankle holsters!

Shadow Stormtroopers with one leg longer than the other.

Juno Eclipse with two of the same calves. (I already had a good copy anyway)

I've found that if you complain, they might replace or refund, but that was a different seller, not Tunghori.

Meijers here has Jungle assortment at $3.99 and space/whatever assortment at $5.99 clearance. Means, if you want Sarko Plank and Atsy you gotta pay two bucks more. (Makes no sense to me, but whatever)

Most of the $3.99 bunch were Resistance Troopers, Goss Toowers, Hux, Guavan Enforcer, that blue droid and the much desired Constable Zuvio.

I forgot to scan Ezra, Kana and Inquistor (grand).

First Odor TIEs were $19.99.  Poe's X-Wang was more, not that cheap, just under $40, IIRC, and had security things around it. LIKE ANYONE WOULD STEAL THAT.  :D

Some other stuff on sale, but probably ends tomorrow.

I almost bought something. But I i've gotten used to not collecting at retail.

The Kroger supermarket chain is running that same clearance pattern, desert stuff was cheaper than jungle by a good $2 or so. Just noticed today.

Great deal if you've been holding out. Only want the FO Officer, so I'll pass again.

I want the FO Officer and the Clone Commander, but I still can't pull the trigger.  I wish they hadn't included all the repacks, or maybe made some more interesting variations.

I don't know - at $12 a figure, I almost feel like I'm losing money if I don't buy another one of these.  You can essentially throw two figures away at that price.  If it gets any lower, I think I'd have to bite just to get another FO Officer.

Yeah that's a pretty good deal.  I was hoping the 4" set would go on sale too.

I'd like the EE one at that price.
