I wanted the head and pauldron for a custom.

:wink:

I might be interested in the body and gun if you have them for trade.

Received my wave 4 shipment from HTS over the holidays, was very disappointed in discovering that very little was done to secure its contents. This is a nightmare for the carded collector. Called HTS customer support and the best they could do was offer a return for a "similar" item, since L3-37 was out of stock... I declined, will take my chances to find at retail. Guess I have an L3 to open...

That sucks. :( I don’t remember having too much luck with HTS packing their shipments very well in the past...Looks like they’re closing up shop temporarily though.

I scored a Target trooper 6 pack for $31. One of the Targets near me had one with damaged packaging that they had taped together and stuck in clearance as "repackage". As an out of box collector, this didnt bother me one bit!

My local Target had these out tonight when I swung by there.

When I went to the register, they would not sell them. The security guard came by when the employee waved him down, and the guard said, "Street date is January 15. Come back for your toy tomorrow."

I laughed and said if they are going to follow street dates, then they shouldn't put the stock out yet. He turned his back and walked away.

Yeah he wasn't too nice.

I went back this morning and picked up the droid set. He's really cool and very articulated. It's too bad Hasbro cheaped out on the other figures in the line.

The guy with dredlocks is okay... But what I do like is his helmet is a separate swapable head. I'll definitely find use for it with a custom!

The clearances continue! I thought I'd gotten a steal when I bought Han's speeder for $15 and the Enfys Swoop for $10. I saw Han's speeder for $7 and the Swoop for $5. I did get the smaller Falcon for $7 to finish a display with so it wasn't all a loss. These weren't in the regular Star Wars or clerance area, they were at the back of a random aisle near the bicylces so I have another place to check future sweeps. Maybe a Quay or L3 will surface!

I ordered the Han/Chewbacca 2-pk from Walmart.com

Got them yesterday - pretty nice overall, though it really is apparent just how badly these figures need a little more articulation.. especially Han.

The cannon accessory is amazing... I might order another set or two because of it.

$1.00? Unreal...

About a month ago, my local Walmart had 25 or so of them on clearance for $7.00... along with other Solo products on clearance... the basic figures were $4.00... I nearly bought the Force Link set for the Han. Went back the next day and they were all gone - the basic figures were $2.00 at that point and all that was left was a Qira, which I passed on. So I assume the Force Link sets were marked down further and someone bought them all at once.

They may have moved them to a different part of the store, that's what they did at a local WM near me. Brickseek will tell you if there are any left in stock and what the clearance price is at each store. Oddly enough, a store 15 minutes away still has them for $25! I think some locations just want the shelf space, so once they sat long enough at $7, they decided to do a purge. I bought extras, so I'd be happy to send you a Han figure if you'd like one.
