    Brian's Toys One of Each Figure Club

    I just got an e-mail from Brian's Toys saying that they are starting a "One of Each Figure Club" starting with TAC wave 3. Figures will be $7.99, with $9.99 shipping per wave. This will only be for basic figures. Deluxe, Vintage, Greatest Hits and Exclusives won't be included.

    It will cost a bit more, but it is cheaper than what Brian's often charges for new figures. I can find most of the figures in the stores, so I won't be signing up. It might be a good deal for completists who have trouble finding figures and don't want to waste time and gas trying to hunt them down.

    ah, very reminiscent of the good ole' KEBCo days. Ya know, when they weren't slackers who charged people and didn't send their product. sigh.

    I don't order from Brians Toys. Dude's prices are ridiculous. I go through BBTS which has good prices and pretty cheap shipping.

    Except for exclusives and TRU (since they aren't around here anymore), I don't buy new stuff online. At the end of a line's run, I'll check Brian's for anything I might have missed. If the price is too high, I'll try eBay first. For a long time, I never tried to buy anything on eBay. Back then, whenever I tried to find non-current figures, Brian's was about the only place I could find them. They also helped fill the gaps in my POTF2 collection when I started collecting in 1999.

    I only ordered from Kebco once. I got the 2003 Saga Bail Organa, Night Club Obi, Concept Stormtrooper, and Padme Lars Homestead. I considered joining the one of every figure club, but passed for the same reason I'm passing now. It was shortly after that order that things went south there. I just checked and see that they have an eBay store, so they haven't completely vanished off the face of the Earth yet. I know for a long time, their old website still seemed unchanged from the time we were awaiting Saga 2004.

    I think it comes out to $9.88/figure. I ordered a case of singles from Andrew's Toyz and I'm getting them for a little less. Still... I don't WANT every figure.

    Ain't that the truth, last time I browsed his site I left in shock from seeing how much he wants for most of that stuff.

    They're not too bad. I just went there to check it out and found a vintage Storm Shadow for only $1,499! What a bargain! I think I'll get two so I can give one to the baby.
    That's my jacket!

    It's a good concept, but I don't think I'd choose to deal with Brianstoys, just due to the pricing. Make some inquiries, I'm sure there are cheaper places that are offering the same thing.

    Aside: I did belong to the KEBco club for 2 years after EpII came out, and I never had any problems with them. For those years everything was super easy, and I didn't have to worry about all the figures that weren't coming to Canada - which was nearly everything at that time.
