    Re: Re: 12" Max Rebo Band Set this Fall!

    Dude, if that means they're sold seperately and like I said, PAF raises prices because they don't order from Hasbro but from overseas and pre-orders are always more there so the price per individual set if it's 2 sets is $80, pre-order price + them ordering from overseas probably added $30-40 and so pure retail per set will hopefully be $40-50 each. Think about it, Sy and Droopy would be $20 indivdually, no real reason the price should raise on them and then Max well he's just 1 figure with his organ would be the equivelent to a second figure and boom, two $40 dollar sets. I hope that made sense to everyone.
    I don't think they added $30-$40 on each, due to the fact I've been shopping thru them a while, and in the case of the AT-ST it's $15.00 more, the Crashed Snowspeeder and Tie Bomber was $20.00 more (i.e 10.00 more each) for the set, and the 12" Luke with Speeder bike was, $30.00 more. So I think that it's going to be around $60-$70 a piece in the stores. Sorry to reply twice in a row, but I wanted to explain why it will probably be more then $40-$50 a set.

    I dunno, there is the possibility, usually things vary in how much they gotta raise the price and since these are pretty expensive anyway, it could've been more.

    $159.99?!?! GOOD LOWWWD, THAT'S A LOTTA MONEY!!

    I don't go after the 12-inchers unless they look REALLY good - probably why I have so few. Despite that presale price being just utterly halucinatory, and whether these are exclusive or not, I couldn't imaging either of them selling at retail for more than $30-$40. I'll probably pass either way.

    And what is PAF thinking in selling the 12" Luke w/ Speeder at $30 above retail ($80!!), when these were warming Target's clearance shelves at $20 for several months?!

    Couldn't care less about this issue, I'm too busy collecting the Saga series, and plus I have these in 3 3/4 right now and could care less about them.

    This would be a great 12" set but I agree that those prices seem really inflated. Did you see how much they were charging for the 12" Luke and Tauntaun? $110?!?! Forget that. Wasn't the Han Solo/Tauntaun originally $60-70 when it came out? I really would love to have a second Tauntaun with Luke (hopefully you can slide him into the tauntaun stomach) but I'll wait and get it at the store.

    Han Hoth on TaunTaun was originally $45.00 as a Toys R Us exclusive when it first came out.

    Amongst all the days as a SW collector, getting that set the first day it was released in southern California will always stand out in my mind. As well as the decent price.
