    Why if Skystalker is out in the states already is he being sold online for $25+??? And don't even start with the whole buy it from Hasbro online cause they hate the military and don't ship to APOs.

    I'm assuming ebay. Ebay sellers jack up prices anyway.

    Not many find him but many want him, like TRU Arcee.

    Free market economy is why. If people are going to pay 25 dollars for it then good for them.

    Personally I got it in January for retail price.

    He is incredibly difficult to find, and a very sought-after figure. I've been looking for him for months, but my searches always end up in vain. I guess it's the one figure I want that I have to miss. :(

    They don't hate the military, they're just lazy and don't want to deal with customs forms. They don't ship anywhere outside the U.S.

    I didn't know he was hard to find for people. He's a good one alright.

    thank god you're not on the Joint Chiefs.
    i don't order from Canada, so am i anti-canuck?

    i haven't seen Skystalker period where i live- among other figures- and it does get frustrating.
    but you need a buddy system back in the states. i helped an Army Cpt. with his Marvel figs while he was in the Big sandbox for 2 tours.

    I got 2 at retail.

    Get a friend in the states to hook you up.
    I have a friend in Japan that gets Henkei and encore stuff for me, I hook him up wiith stateside stuff...works really well.

    He's an end-of-the-line figure so not all the stores ordered that wave. Even in the states many people haven't seen him. You've got a lot of people praying that enough HA Mudflap, Skystalker, Mindwipe, and Animated Arcee were produced and just haven't been shipped yet and will flood the stores later.

    I didnt realize Skystalker was so rare. I'm still seeing him around in my area. Still looking for HA Mudflap. For me, I wouldnt pay $25 for Skystalker. He's pretty cool, but not $25 cool. IMO.

    Skystalker seems to be the most popular of the Divebomb/Skystalker/Scattorshot wave. Aside from a few times (including the one where I obtained my own Skystalker), Divebomb and Scattorshot are the only ones of that wave.

    I got Scattorshot after an unsuccessful hunt for Skystalker, but I already have Ransack, so I'm not going to get Divebomb.
