I've read in a few different sites that the cost of the figures may be very much cheaper than the POTJ line. Any truth to this? Will the prices be the same or will they be cheaper (one site said as low as $3.99?!!?!?!?). Please someone tell me this is true!

Mystic Jargo predicts that the figures will hit retail everywhere for the first couple of waves. Film tie-ins bring much excitement and much wanting from the kiddies. Some stores won't re-order stock after the first big push is over, stores like TRU in the UK who have no plans for any extended star wars stock lines. The episode two toys will be available in plentiful quantities up until xmas this year then mysteriously "POOFFF!!" vanished and never to be seen again. leaving us right back at square one, battling to find the things at retail because the retailers won't stock up. Hasbro thinks the line is dead and bingo! no more star wars in 2003 at all.

That was scenario #1. Discuss: :D

Price? Whatever the heck the retailers want to charge of course. DUH! don't you know anything yet? retailers are god, they do what they want to do and we aint supposed to moan about it, just sit up and beg to be punished some more for our sins. :rolleyes:

I remember that $8.99 was floating around for awhile, but I would hope that the standard assortment would retail for about $5.99.

If the LOTR figures are retailing locally for $6.25 at their scale, SW should reasonably market for at least a dollar less. Comparing Shmi to Gandalf was embarressing, considering that Shmi cost more. :(

Hasbro's MSRP: $3.99

Actual retail price: $8.99

:rolleyes: Retailers are evil that way. Hasbro said that they were loosing the CommTech chips to drop prices and guess what.....NO DROP IN PRICE.

Software ETC had the nerve to charge $12.99 for the first POTJ wave.

I believe the price will be a little higher than what we are use to.I hope not but we all know that the stores will and can do what they want to the price.

Since the Episode II figures SUCK! They should be $1.99. But that won't happen. The retailers or Hasbro will find a way to hike it up another $6.

Your right. The pic's of the figures are not that great but maybe with the new packaging they will look better.

Just my thoughts

For the stuff they're making, they should be paying us for putting up with it! :D

A prime example of retailers pricing things however they wish can be seen in the following:

Deluxe figures:
Kmart- $9.99
TRU- $14.99
Family Toy- $12.99

See?

Hopefully the figures will sell for around $5.99. I agree with sith_killer_99. The reason Hasbro got rid of the Commtech was to reduce the price of the figures. And we still saw no price decrease. They replaced it with the force file stuff, but now in the last couple of waves they have taken that away and are still charging the same amount. Here is a clue Hasbro, don't give us stupid stuff like Commtech chips or force file cards. No one cares about them. The collectors care about the figures themselves. So all we ask is for better sculpting. Is that too hard. I will buy the figures I want right away when they come out and then I'll go buy the ones I don't quite want when they are $1.99 each. It's bound to happen this time around.
