Saw Greedo the other day, what an awesome figure!!! Perfect representation of the Rodian Bounty Hunter!!! I really wanted to get it, since way back when Greedo was my first Star Wars figure ever, along with Princess Leia!! My path toward the Dark Side was set, thanks to my dear ol mum.

So glad I stopped by tonight. I checked the previous page and saw y'all's mention of the Amazon sale!! Thought I had missed it, but I went over to check anyhow; it was still on!!!! Sweet!! Now not every fig was half off, but I was happy to save so much over retail!! I can justify spending $10 or do on a figure!!! Thanks for posting about the sale!!

 

Picked up:

Greedo

Luke X-Wing

R2

Darth Maul (the only prequel figure I will get!!)

 

I'll have to keep a look out for Han and the Sandtrooper on sale too!! :D

 

Plus free shipping!! Yay yay!!

I think those recent loose pics are distorted a bit. They look squished a tad and if you look at the Stormtrooper, his helmet looks squished a bit too, and then look at the perfect stormtrooper helmet in the sandtrooper pic above. I think the ebay seller messed up the pics when trying to resize them or something.

I did see Slave Leia and Greedo but had to pass because I was buying presents.I did notice how Boba Fett and Han weren't there.It's going to fun to try and find those two

 

I have a feeling that after series 3 gets released Han will be pretty easy to come by. Some places have heavily discounted preorders for him already.

Which is why you can never tell with the internet. It MAY be what we're getting or it may look slightly different. Who knows if it's someone who just doesn't know how to edit with their camera? Heck, there are still some people who see a photoshopped Hasbro promo image and think they're getting the same shading in their final product....

Why do you say that?? Seems to be selling well at retail, even at regular prices!!

 

im jk, honestly i haven't kept up on how this line is doing, ive seen a few at retail but passed...im burnt out i guess.

Its probably gonna take the snow trooper or biker scout to get my juices flowing again. I thought maybe slave leia would

do it but the excitement hasnt kicked in yet. Maybe even the new movies will get me going again or a new big vehicle.

 

Im glad though ppl are excited about this line...and its hanging in there.

Yeah, I was burnt out too!!! I would think I had the ultimate version, and then a slight tweak, added articulation, and a better figure!! It just got to me!!! I'm done with the 3" line!!

 

But these are a thing of beauty, for the most part!! I gotta say, the most perfect Stormtrooper helmet on a figure, ever!! I'll be picky on what I get!! But I hope we see more!!

I still think that was done on purpose to draw out the 3 3/4" line as long as humanly possible. They could have easily done "ultimate" 3 3/4" versions years ago but held out to the very end.

They revealed a 6" Biker Scout w/ Speederbike earlier this year for 2014.

 

Really? I heard rumors about this being the plan, but never saw actual photos or was it just an announcement? If so, this is one i have to pickup.

I think that's the fanboy's way of thinking... remember, they're a company. They need to be able to bring out main figures in every wave.... year after year. THAT is why there were so many Lukes, Vaders, Hans, etc... not to mention technology got better, sculpting got better, everything got better.

I believe all Hasbro has shown (@ SDCC/NYCC?) is a 'coming in 2014' w/ the movie image from the vintage Biker Scout
