    And how are people at the wherehouse supposed to buy that stuff when there is no cash register?

    I mean, is SW THAT big a deal anymore? It doesnt seem as big since E1 came out. All the hype crumbled all SW collecting IMHO. I seriosly don't think any of the people that are actually in charge of the ordering for the bIg retailers thinks it's that big a deal. Thats why 12"ers get to the stores in such low quantities. I got so sick of trying to find them that I order them through online sources.

    I just cant believe there are that many SW collectors working for Wal-mart, Target and the likes that would cause such a problem.

    Does anyone here go through scalpers anymore?

    I would bet most arent SW collectors but scalpers indeed. WHy do you think on EBay 90% of stuff has HTF next to it? Its so hard to find because it is in their living rooms and not at the stores.

    And no, I have never bought anything off of a scalper. I might of paid a buck or two more than retail on Ebay, but what can ya do in some cases. I consider scalpers starting there auctions at twice reatil, not a buck or two above, because each store charges different prices. But to open an auction at 11.99 is outrageous for one figure and a BIN of 20 bucks.

    The Wal Mart by me placed the Garindan wave on the shelves today. But at $25.00 a piece, I actually got mine cheaper at Entertainment Earth.

    I'll buy on ebay if the price is right factoring in the S&H. I always check the sellers other auctions first. If they look like a legit business, or a collector selling off his stuff, I'll buy; but if the seller has a long list of the latest HTF, Vintage 1996, Hotwheels, MOTU, etc; I wouldn't buy from the Comic Shop scumbag if he was only charging S&H. I have no use for those who don't buy from Hasbro but empty the store shelves every morning.

    I saw 7 12" luke jedis at a super wm today. That makes 16 luke jedi's I've seen, 0 ewoks, 0 biker scouts, and 0 yodas. Smart choice to rehash this one for a 3rd or 4th time when the last version of him is still dirt cheap on ebay. Good one, hasbro!
