Me too was too good of a deal to pass up.
After getting Boba Fett in hand I picked up Solo at Toyworld and my local Big W still had Sandtrooper today so I grabbed that.
Not sure if I will grab slave Leia or Greedo at this point. Greedy just not interested and Leia is just 'plain ugly' as my nine year old says.
I swore years ago that I would never collect SW figures again from Hasbro but I am happy to have these in my collection.

I had little interest in 6" Star Wars...until I received Han
& Leia the other day. Leis isn't amazing but overall I really like them & plan to buy more.

I agree I certainly plan to add more to my collection, this is a Star wars line that I feel is worth collecting at a reasonable price.

I do note that the repeats are already starting with the first release in 2014 with Han.

I get frustrated sometimes with the inability to display some figures accessories.
So I came up with this for the Sandtrooper. A couple pieces of white tac and this is the result


It's like they were designed to fit there.

All of series 1 is like $10-11 US on Amazon. Probably won't last beyond this week. Just snapped up 3 more Sandtroopers. Too good a price to pass up.

Direct from Amazon is very cheap.

To give you an idea, ordered 3 Sandtroopers, 2 packs of Mousers from TMNT, and a Monsters Uni Squealing Mascot. Shipping totalled to US$14.18.

I have determined Amazon's shipping is crazy.
I got 6" Maul, R2D2 and Luke shipped from Amazon for about $10 US shipping but I wanted to get a single DVD shipped and it was like $17 US shipping alone which would have made the DVD almost $40 US.

On another note decided to pick up Leia and Greedo from series 2.
Definitely loving this series. I will continue to collectparticularly the OT characters.
Prequel characters will be determined based on how good they look.

It's random and the items are random. Tried to add the Iron Man 3 figure from the Iron Man legends line (the ones with the Iron Monger BAF) and it pushes shipping up by over $20. It makes no sense.

Also, can't order Marvel Select Thor 2 Thor. It won't ship here. Every single other Marvel Select does except this one. :/

I had the exact dilemma. When I try asking Amazon's support as to why, they throw the usual "due to certain country restrictions..." wording at me. I'll just have to source it from one of the comic stores.

Greedo in Target Rouse Hill tonight. Along with the fugliest slave Leia.

Looks like the head is misshapen and paint apps offset by a mil!

Hope this is an exception and not too common. My series 1 and 2 sets are finally on their way from BBTS.

Looks like Series 3 is shipping with Han again instead of Anakin. I'm guessing he's not ready?

My Leia is surprisingly good. Much better than the promo shots that were getting around.

Fett, of course, is superb.

Got my Fett today. Never had a big attachment to the character, and hated the prequels making him a Kiwi. But damn he's easily the best looking of the line so far (perhaps even moreso than the Sandies).

Got Leia as well, but only because she was $10 on Amazon (Fett was $23 when he popped back on before Xmas). She is TINY. I'm sure even Carrie Fisher, as diminutive as she may be, isn't the size of an 8 year old girl. >_<

The Princess Leia is not a bad looking figure, but you're right about the size! Mrs. Puniverse!

I think the figure came out much better than the promo shots led us to thinking.
