I was a little late in checking the stuff out, but it seems KB had a massive sale. They marked the Gunships down to $10 (sold out now), some figures down to $1.27, Jedi Starfighters with Obi-Wan down to $4.97 and their exclusive 12" Clones are now only $13-something.

I really would have liked to get another Gunship or two - I wish I had known about this sooner. I'm betting that if they were $10, there was probably a limit of one, but that wouldn't have been so bad.
Now I just have to decide if I want a few extra Jedi Starfighters...

Anyway, just letting you guys know.

I sure did. I picked me up a little interactive astromech droid for under $50.

I was going to order, but I thought the shipping was a bit much. Plus, I don't have any place for a Gunship, so it'd of been a waste of money. Sooner or later they'll have them again, or the ones at the store will be brought down to that price.

They also had the Master Replicas F/X Anakin Saber for $80, that's a real good deal. I picked one of those bad boys up! Can't wait to see it :D!

This looked like the deal of the century to me as well, many more things than just SW up for clearance, and a great deal on preordering the new miniature LOTR display pieces. Too bad they won't ship to Canada, they blew their chance at a couple hundred bucks with me the other day.

You could always just get someone from the States to order it for you and then ship it to you. Might be a bit more for shipping (covering KB to send it to the person and then that person to send it to you). But if you really want the stuff...

I checked back today (Monday) and I noticed they added a few more SW characters. They've got Dooku, Bespin Chewie and Anakin (Hangar Duel) now. All a buck-twenty seven. Not too shabby. I might get a few more Chewies and some Starfighters now.

The Gunship is back in stock for $9.97 and the Obi Jedi Starfighter is as well for $4.97. Shipping is a bit much though, they add a surcharge for large items on top of shipping rates.

If you're talking just about the Gunship (as a large item, I mean) I don't think so. Because I ordered one before, back when they were $19.97 each, and they didn't tack on a surcharge.
I know they're doing it for the Shuttle, but that's a bit bigger than the Gunship. At least, I think it is, as I've never actually seen one. :rolleyes:

I was going to order one gunship and they wanted $8 and change for shipping. Their info on shipping says $.80 per pound (item is 5.5) plus a one time surcharge of $3.99. I ended up ordering two instead and had to pay $12.22 shipping which I can live with, it's a cool item.

That $3.99 is just what they always charge. A lot of sites do that, and that's how I had to do it when I made my purchase.
When you said they were adding a surcharge, I assumed it was something completely extra.

They are showing up as "in stock" again, as of 3:00 pm ET today, May 19, as are the Jedi Starfighters. (I picked up some more myself - can't beat the price, though the shipping does seem a little high in proportion to the product cost). Just think, for the original cost of buying an Obi-Wan Pilot figure, you get the ship for free!

Yeah, I ordered a gunship last night. Came to $19.18 w/shipping. Funny that the shipping is like $1.50 less than the product, but I not complaining. $19.18 is a GREAT deal for the gunship! :) I notice at the actual KB stores, gunships are $29.99 right now, so saving $10 is not bad at all!

Now to find some extra clone pilots & troopers to put in it.....

Sorry if I confused you Lman, I have a tendencey to do that sometimes.

Here's hoping they continue the four pack recalls and throw those guys in 'em.

That coupon is only good if your order is $40 or more.

They have some great deals on figures and the OB1 starfighter, but the shipping charges are horrendous. All I want is the starfighter but the shipping makes it more expensive online than at the store.

since KB doesn't ship to Canada, if any of you ordered extra gunships just for the sake of ordering them - I'd be interested in one, please pm me.
