    OMG I found this at rebelscum:

    The breakdown of E3 2005 Hasbro line should be the following :

    Sneak Previews : 4 figures + 1 véhicle
    Basic Figures : 56 figures (30 Collection 1 + 26 Collection 2)
    Deluxe Figures : 8-9 figures
    Battle Vehicles : 3 figures + beasts - or 2 vehicles
    Assault Vehicles : 3 vehicles
    Gunship : 2 vehicles
    Playset : 1 toy
    Unleashed : 6 characters
    12" Dolls : 6 characters
    Cinema Scenes : 3 scenes
    A new line Force Battlers for 3-8 years : 12 characters

    * ......... My god, im going to be soooo out of money after this movie its not even funny. We should start a food drive!
    This is crazy.. 56 figures at $5.99 = $335.44 JUST FOR FIGURES! Im not happy.

    Well, it looks as if I wil save a little money. All I plan to buy is:

    4 Preview figures
    56 Basic figures
    3 Unleashed (maybe)
    3 Cinema Scenes

    Maybe the Deluxe figures, I passed on all the Saga deluxe figures and wish I had passed on the EP1 Deluxe. If they do these like the Ultra figures, I may buy 'em. I also do not plan on buying any "openers" unless they really kick arse.

    As for the 56 figures, they will be spread out until the end of the year so it's really no big deal to me.

    I guess that leaves more $$$ for CIII.
    May the force be with you.

    That's actually not that bad of a price for an entire year. With $360 for figures and maybe the same plus a couple of extra dollars you're looking at about $700-$800 for the year. That puts you at less than $80 a month. For me tack on carded vintage figs that I'll buy and very few figs/vehicles from the previous lines and I shouldn't be in bad shape.

    For those that don't have jobs or have parents buy there figs they'll be in pretty bad shape but as for me I'll do quite good.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    Try Wal-Mart. As I mentioned in another thread, their shelf tags list the Episode III figures at $5.88 a piece.

    The figures are the top priority for me; hopefully the price will drop back below $5 as retailers compete amongst themselves. The more expensively priced toys usually shelf-warm so I can wait until clearance time for them.

    It appears that Lucasfilm is pushing ROTS with a marketing blitz of Episode I proportions. So I expect tons of product with just about every retailer carrying the line; and I think consumers will benefit in the end.

    Hell if I could pay of 1300 in debt in 4 weeks, you can buyt 335 dollars worth of figures over 8 months.

    Maybe, if you're paying off what you charge from SW purchases.

    There will be at least $500+ you could spend on "opening day" - aka Midnight Madness, most likely.

    Those of us that army-build could be in for a world of hurting.

    I've been saving since last August or September so I'll have at least $1,000 to spend on April 2nd. Because I army build, I'm afraid that won't be enough.

    My SW budget for a year is $1500. That usually works out - but movie years are tricky.

    Furthermore, the price increase....

    I just started debating it with myself:

    1) Go to Midnite Madness and pay TRU's price?
    2) Wait for Wal-Mart to open and get E3 toys first thing that morning instead?

    Midnite Madness is a lot of fun - so I'd go no matter what.

    Now it starts to seem really dumb waiting out there all afternoon and evening to be the first person in line, especially if I don't plan to buy anything!

    Tycho, isn't there a 24 hr. Wal-Mart near you? When I went to Midnight Madness back in 2002, they had their merchandise out at midnight. They didn't wait until the morning to stock it.

    Thats exactly what I did. There were 4 people there besides me. I just emptied a ton of toys into the cart and walked off to the side and took what I wanted.
