...and to think all you'll be paying for is Han in carbonite because Boba Fett will no doubt come out in the regular waves at some point.

Pre-orders just went up on BBTS. $80 USD for the series 1 set which isn't bad.

I'm going to bet we see these at retail here though. That could be a bad move but the way the Aussie $ is heading I'm not going to start any new orders any time soon. Plus the hunt is half the fun.

Nice way to get me to visit your site Entertainment Earth. So series 2 already confirmed to have Greedo. I'm hoping Boba Fett too.

Oh, I guess I went back on my last post too. Pre-ordered series 1 at BBTS last week.

Received pricing for these from Hasbro AU yesterday.  Due September.  Given their wholesale price, I can't see them retailing for anything less than $30.00ea in Oz....In fact I expect them to be around the $35.00 mark.

Apparently they've been found at Target in the US already, but no sign here yet (though I've only tried Myer, Target and K-Mart)

A nice review of the SDCC exclusive Boba Fett.

Damn, that Boba is really nice.

Not 100% sure I will buy 6" Star Wars...but it's very tempting.

More black six-inch love... wait, that sounds a bit wrong....

New pics out of Celebration in Europe.




PLEASE tell me that Hasbro will pack that Stormtrooper with an appropriate ratio. That thing is the army builder to end all army builders!

I certainly know what the wholesale cost is and anyone who thinks that these are going to be priced at around $25.00ea is hopelessly optimistic.  To give you a hint.....take a look at what the vehicles are selling for at TRU: http://www.toysrus.com.au/star-wars-speeder-bike/w1/i2630307/#vwocamp

Ouch.

Series 1 is available for pre-order on Amazon for $20 per figure for anyone who is interested and shipping is cheap (particularly for more than 1). Due for release August 1.

Unfortunately the Sandtrooper is sold out, but it may get restocked (the pre-order did sell out and then was made available again).

I did a dumbass move and bought the SDCC Boba Fett at a bargain price and not of the current market price $250-$300, so I might sell him if I do not like him or the set.

The best figures I have seen all-year, great paint scheme and detailing. I did not even want to take it out of the box and it made my day at work Smile.Its like Toybiz figures and I think they just need to improve on the head sculpts.

The Sandtrooper (it can transform into Stormtrooper) is a must get hard to find figure, so I have been buying them in lots.
