Where is a good site to order an Ephant Mon online? Preferably an individual figure and not an entire case. Thanks in advance!

Check one of our sponsors. They should have him for a reasonable price.

Usually Yestertoys has decent prices. Just don't go to Brian's Toys. They are way over priced.

I'd wait for now, so you're not paying $20 for this figure due to claims of limited availability. Once enough are produced, you should find it for less than $10 total. Don't do eBay either. They're worse than the vendors.


Just be patient, or else you'll be kicking yourself when you find him locally for a fraction of what you paid.

If only everyone were to follow these wise words, myself in the past included! Boy did I learn my lesson with the deluxe bacta luke and darth maul. Never AGAIN, patience really pays off, literally! :)

In the meantime, you can always check out Kebco's non-mint sale. $2.49 each, including some of the harder to find figures. Or $3.99 standard price.

They don't have Ephant yet, but this is a good example of how you don't need to spend extra for figures like Teemto, Ki, Yoda, and Dooku. Everything works out in the end. :)

Keep an eye out:

I'd wait also. He'll show up if you wait and look a little. YOu'll find him. He's still shipping.

if you really can't wait, and don't care about shipping, you can order one right now at tru.com 4.99 +shipping

Ummm, jgm. It's not in stock, so you can't order it. You can only add it to your wish list. Since they don't know when they will get them in, they keep them up, but they can't be ordered. :)

This item is not stocked or has been discontinued.

MTFBWy and HH!!

I refute whoever said don't check ebay. I won an auction with "Buy it now" for Ephant, Clone Pilot, Jango Pilot and Ki Adi Mundi for 25 bucks. Not bad. Not super, but not bad.

I agree. eBay is a great resource for finding hard to find figures. All the gas and time I've burned looking for figures more than makes up for the increased price.

This is the cheapest one I could find:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1788243799

But, it says nothing regarding the condition of the card. "Figure is mint" refers strickly to the "FIGURE" not the card or bubble. So, ask questions first.

JJReason, The auction you won works out to $6.25 per figure, not including shipping. (I paid more than that for theose stinkin' POTJ figures.) That's a good average price for newer stuff. It would be a ripoff for just one figure though. At least in my area, Metro Detroit, Hasbro seems to be better at eventually getting stuff out to the shelves. To paraphrease Kevin Cosner "if you wait, it will come."

I cannot teach him; he has no patience.

I'd just wait, he'll turn up. I "had" to get an Acklay and got one for 20+ S&H off Yestertoys. Day after i got it, found him at wal-mart a bit cheaper. d'oh!

See Jar JGM felt so bad about that he had to post it twice.


I broke down and got it off ebay for $9.99 Buy It Now. I'm so ashamed.

Hey I found 2 non mint ones at K-mart yesterday. I learned my lesson with the POTJ. If you wait they will come. Although if you can win a whole wave on e-bay it works out pretty good.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I think I'll just hold out for it until I can pick it up. I too got burned with a Count Dooku on ebay for....and it pains me to say this...$17.50! (including shipping). I thought it was a great buy, until I bought two at Target the NEXT DAY!!!! :stupid:

Plus, being a carded collector, I think finding one in good condition will be tough as well. Oh well, just have to wait and see!
