Is this figure any good? If I had the chance to buy it for 20 ($20), should I? I really like his character, best in EU, along with Corran Horn (whom I may never see a figure of :( ). I don't actually have the chance, but he may turn up in shop near me, like Mara Jade :D .

If you thought the rest of the EU line had decent sculpting, you'll like Thrawn. I personally thought they could've done better.

What is with you and Corran Horn?

Who/What is Corran Horn, anyway?

$20 is a total rip off for that. I got one by trading a Dejarik Champion chewie! It is a cool figure though,but has no shooulder things, no nutrient bar for the ysalimari, and is abit small. Its cool though:crazed:

Thrawn is a very cool figure but I wouldn't say hes worth $20. I'd pay about $10 for one if you can.

$20 is the price set by the secondary market not the suggested retail price from Hasbro. Once a figure reaches the secondary market then Hasbro no longer has control over the price and doesn't profit from the toy's sale.

I believe places like Brian's Toys actually purchase the toys from Hong Kong at factory prices, then sell them at double, triple or quadruple retail to cash in on the impatient among us.

If you read I, Jedi, you'll know how cool Corran Horn is!

I agree with jayspawn. $10 is reasonable. Corran horn is also awesome, not only in I,jedi but in most of the X-wing books(the fraction he's in, about 6/9 or so). Anybody got a 300th fett?:rolleyes: I'll pay money!:greedy:

He is a good figure to have and I want him,but I'll bide my time and get he cheeper.I did that for Mara and was able to get her for 12.00.Sometimes it pays to be to wait.

The entire EU line was cool. It would be really nice if they would do another series.

Bigb, actually Brian's Toys DOES buy from Hong Kong. That is why he get's them first. However, he does NOT get them at factory prices. Hasbro works on a sliding scale price scheme. The more a companies order the cheaper the price.

Hence TRU get's the best price on figures. They are the single largest sellers of SW toy...yes even bigger than retailers like Wal-Mart (who has the best prices...go figure).

Anyway, in order to buy direct from Hasbro Brian's has to order double the minimum order ($2,500) for a total of $5,000.00!!!

This is how he get's them first, charges big bucks, and can still afford to let some go at clearance prices. It is also why he has such a large selection of some older figures.

Yes, Corran Horn is a great character, and I would LOVE to see him made.

Thrawn is cool, but a bit pricey at $20.00

Also figuresandtoys.com has 300th Fett's in stock. Just a suggestion, BTW they buy direct from Hasbro (not scalped from Wal-Mart).;)
