Thanks Jeff.  I just dropped a couple hundred on Legos.  20% isn't a bad deal on Legos these days.

I happened to stop by a PR company that's working for Hasbro today.  And they had LOADS of these swag packs for "MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU" lying around their office.  Funny though, it would be nice if they would actually, you know, let the public know about all of these promotions!

Nice.  I was able to order Unkar Plutt and Nien Nunb.  Still in the market for Han, Resistance Rey, Hoodless Kylo, and Blood Smeared Finn...

I picked up the Falcon for $35 at Walmart. Still wasn't worth it.  :o

Damn, I just paid $40 for just Chewie and Finn because I wanted it over with.  I knew I should have kept waiting.

I've yet to encounter anything on clearance but I don't frequent stores like I used to.

What are people's general experiences buying from "tunghori" on eBay?  I'm tempted to buy the latest wave of WM figures from him, but not sure what the paint quality is likely to be considering how crappy the factory accepted versions of this line have been.  Does he do a fairly good job of screening for quality?

As a loose figure collector, I have bought several figures from Tunghori in the past and had only one minor issue with quality--a glob of paint on a figure's face that kind of looked like a large mole. (I performed a minor Xacto surgery and solved the problem.)

Without the benefit of side-by-side comparison to "acceptable" figures as you say, I have not had an issue with any of the others.

I bought the Walmart exclusive Black Series TFA Han Solo & Leia from Tunghori and received them last week.  I also got a couple of other figures in the order which averaged the shipping costs down a little bit.  Overall, I thought the paint apps were okay.  And I was actually pleasantly surprised with the face paint apps on the Leia.  I have seen some positively awful samples of that Leia surface online, but mine wound up being okay.

Normally I wouldn't go this route.  But I only saw a lone Captain Phasma from this wave in the wild, and I was really getting tired of driving to every WalMart store in the North Jersey area with nothing to show for it.
