So today I took the day off to get my yearly health check up done and since the lab/doctor is in the same building as the mall I went to KB while they were opening, just to kill some time until the doctor arrived and to my surprise I stumble upon "new" figures. Now I say "new" since besides the firs 2 Waves of Clone Wars, the regular Saga figures were stuck on the Obi Wan Acklay wave.
So I look and see the Death Star Clash Vader, 3PO, the Snowtrooper, Throne Room Duel Luke & Vader, Pit Boba Fett, Ceremony Anakin and Hoth Han at $6.99 which isn't that bad but isn't good either, so I pick up Hoth Han, Snowtrooper and Anakin but while I'm checking to see if I can find a blue coat Han(all the ones there were brown ) I start finding old Saga Ki Adi Mundis, Teemtos, and tons of Djas Puhrs(sp?) and I notice this huge bubble behind them and low and behold to my surprise it was Ephant Mon so I snatched him, bent card & bubble and all and walked to the register. Even better was when it rang up, $2.99, just like all the old Saga carded figures(Palpatines, Djas, Teemtos etc.).
The more recent figs were still $6.99 though, but I found a cheap, ready to be opened and displayed Ephant so that kinda makes up for a bit of KB's inconsistency and harsh prices. The only plus in KB or any other stores stashing SW cases on the back, gathering dust is that months later when they break them out you might find a certain figure that either is rare to come by or is now real cheap. Is like one of those things you never expect to see.
Now my question, in what case or with what figures is the blue coat Han packed with, cause there were like 4 of him and all 4 were brown.
Hope you don't mind my long post, I just felt like sharing my happy findings.
