    Okay, today, I have for sale 3 Scorch figures from The Star Wars Saga Collection: Battle of Geonosis, Saga: 021. One comes with, what appears to be, a Qui-Gon Jinn hologram fig., 1 comes with, what appears to be, a Han Solo hologram fig., and 1 comes with, what appears to be, an Anakin Skywalker hologram fig. Your choice, first come first serve! Pics availabe upon request.

    Now, before anyone acccuses me of hoarding, I bought these because I knew they were rare at the time and happened upon 4 at a Kay-Bee on the front pegs. Crazy, eh? I fgured my friends might want some and one did indeed take 1. However, no one else around here wanted another one and, although I was tempted myself since he's pretty cool-looking, I need money more (mostly to spend on TFs, I'm not a SW fan).

    Why don't I return them? Because I thought Kay-Bee had a 90-day return policy like the big stores do now...oops...Now, buy 1 and quit reading this!

    I'm asking $9 each plus actual shipping (your choice of carrier, method), and the pesky Paypal fees (2.9% of total + fixed $0.30 fee) as I'm trying to save money where I can. If you don't want to use Paypal, we can probably do that too, just lmk! More pics available upon request.

    Check my feedback on the boards here and on e-bay under the ID: thetruetriformis

    The below pic is not one of my actual figs., but was found on the net. However, I assure you mine look minty fresh as well and have been standing on a shelf since I bought them some time ago.

    I believe a special Republic Commandos set was announced a short while ago, including Scorch as well as the other three from the game, so I think he's gone down in desirability as a result.

    Yeah, a buddy of mine who's a SW fan told me that too, but still...only a little while ago, peole were snapping up as many of these as they could get for whatever reason...troop-building? (even though he's technically unique). Ah, well...maybe I'll just keep one and do the e-bay thing with the rest...*ugh*...

    I think they might have been re-released. I couldn't find them originally, but just last week my walmart put out a endcap display, and there was about a dozen or so Scorch's in it.

    Good luck! Unless you've got the one with the blue holo's (rarer as the first release) you might as well return them.

    I also have 3x Scorches. 1 for a loose display, 1 for MISB, and 1 for a custom.

    Mine are the ones with the red holos... so they are kinda worthless.

    Well, they weren't a while back, they were sizzlin'! I just waited too long...However, I had a hit today, so I'm following up on that. Damn holo pack-ins!

    What sort of custom are you doing with your extra?
