Almost a month ago my buddy sent me a extra Starkiller that he had. I reviewed him on Youtube. I love this figure and it's one of my top 5 favorite VC figures that I own. He's also one of my all time favorite characters in the SW universe! who agrees here!?

Well, I wont be paying $50 for starkiller and the bounty hunter girl. The others I am fine with the sculpts I already have. So until I can get the above mentioned at a reasonable price, I wont be getting any of these. If anyone knows a etailer selling them for anything less than $20, please share the link.

What's more upsetting is the case assortments from BBTS and EE.  I've been getting my figures in waves through them for years, its' just the best way to go in terms of getting a whole set that isn't beat to hell.  However the case assortments for getting waves 3 - 5 are ridiculous when you get back 4-5 Episode I figures you simply do not need.  ::)
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

I agree Spice, it's stupid to have figs we don't need in a case. But the prices online are freakin absurd! That's why so many are done with this nonsense...

I want 1 of each & will never order cases, too many repacks to get 5 new figs.
How difficult is it going to be to acquire the later waves in Vin line before hiatus?
Demand will rise & so will prices.

I would like to find or have any of these figures. But been very dry since the CW Boss wave or the Sandstorm wave. Gee, my local Walmart loaded up the shelves on Thursday with more of the old S*^# of wave 1 and 2 of CW and VC figures. What the F'n are they doing.  :banghead:

Wow I would be sooo mad if I were u. That's stupid ridiculous! I would so freakin talk to the manager of the toy dept and ask whats up that they keep getting the same junk?? Or call up Hasbro and ask if their warehouse is full of old figures and not new ones? Cause that's the only other explanation I can come up with..

I think this wave totally passed central Texas, the newest items I have seen is the Lost wave. Out Target here has not had anything new in months.

only if you don't mind the Imperial logo where the Republic logo should be
as far as I know, the only time we see Oddball was at the beginning of ROTS, when they were flying cover for Obi Wan and Anakin, before the Galactic Empire was declared

taking the helmet off, he sports a Jango head without the hood
it's basically the same figure from that Evolutions set, just with the wrong logo on the shoulder and no body suit hood over the head
it looks better on the card than loose IMHO

Okay thanks slobba!
I will probably get him because I dont have any other odd ball and I dont mind the wrong logo. Thanks

Not at my retail locations.  But I just bought the entire case off of BBTS.  Nice case with hard to find figs like Malgus, star killer, and shae vizsla and wedge.  I'm betting most of this wave skips retail in my area.

I got these from Amazon for $12.99 each and free s/h for being a prime member.  Since retail varies from 9.99-11.99 locally I figure that is worth spending a small amount of money to ensure i have them.
Is it time to go home yet?
