    My phone is out of whack. What vintage figures are you talking about?

    I think he means ROTS, not ROTF. Star Wars.

    Bashford Target has two Jungle Vipers, as well as Hall of Armor Mark I, II, III, IV, VI, and War Machine, plus the three-pack.

    That would certainly explain it. BTW, are they just using a vintage picture of the "rocket firing backpack" Boba Fett for the mail in, or are they producing it?

    I know from working there and having employees check things while I was present since that they can see a fair bit of info on products when they pull up the right screens. Number in their distribution center (and I think in the main DC that feeds it), I believe they can see how many are en route to the DC that serves them too. They can also see information such as how many are supposed to be allocated to their store, how many are en route, etc.

    I got the item number, and had them check in the computer to see if they had any in-stock, and they said it was marked as an X-item meaning they were not getting any in, soo Guess we have to pay ebay prices unfortunately.

    If you're OK with the Japanese version, I still have them in stock.

    Got a surprise walking into The Great Escape today. They had 1x Terradive, Electostatic Jolt,Tomahawk, Red Alert, and a Darkmount. I grabbed the Darkmount. I'll tell you in advance each figure is $17.99. Good luck and happy hunting.

    Was in Lexington today and saw Darkmount and 3 MP Grimlocks at TRU and bought the WFC Megatron that was at the Target across the street.

    Blech, 17.99 for a deluxe? Is this wave of Generations/HFTD really that hard to find?

    Hmm, how much money would i be looking at? And how long would you say until i could actually "get it" Like in my hands? I've been tempted for a while with the japanese but its always so expensive when you factor in the shipping from hong kong or wherever its coming from. Thanks.

    It's not so much that, as the high wholesale price a shop like TGE has to pay on the small scale of ordering they do, compared to a place like TRU, Target, or Wal-Mart. Their markups need to be higher too, because their employees get paid decently.

    $28 plus shipping (he's actually in my signature with the price, LOL), which should be maybe $6, at a guess. If you want to pick up at the meetup next weekend, I'll waive the shipping entirely. I'm intending to take anyone who wants to over to my storage facility anyway, so you can all see and get things you want in person.

    17.99!!!! I understand why TGE has to put them out for so much but I think I'll be waiting till I can walk into a Walmart/Target and these are warming the pegs.

    Wow, now that'd be something worth looking into. Hate to see where a guy's gotta swipe his credit card though.

    Yup. Just place the order. At the absolute worst, depending on what my week is like, it'll ship out on Saturday. Probably sooner unless I just end up being much busier than normal.
