    Same here! I'll pay top dollar, whatever scalpers want on ebay. Will probably be the only Muppet toys released.

    I really hope the scalpers don't go nuts on these things. If nothing else, I WANT that Link/Fozzwocka set.

    Is there any word yet on price per pack?

    When they were first announced back in May it was said they'd retail for about $20 a pack. I wouldn't be terribly surprised to see them going for 25$ though.

    My friend Dave in CA bought me a set of these and the new StarSpeeder 1000 toy. They haven't arrived in the mail yet, but here's the pics Dave took of his... FINALLY a good comparison of the size of these alongside the Palisades figures!

    And I just noticed that nicely sculpted PVC 6-pack has been pushed back to Spring 2012, if you follow the link I posted a few messages above. It originally said "in time for the holidays" but that part has now been crossed through.

    I found them slightly cheaper than Disney(overall with postage) on ebay,because Disney wanted $75 to ship them to Australia! I got the 4 for $99.95 + $43.30 shipping.

    My set came in today and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. I haven't opened the figures yet but just the packaging alone seems to be a better quality then the usual Disney figures. The figure look really good in person too. This is the first time I've ever been torn over keeping a figure in the packaging or not.

    Inevitably they'll come out to play though :D

    Well I broke down and opened up the figures. For the most part they're pretty sturdy however there are a couple of loose joints and them. Han/Link's head flops about freely, I popped it off and stuck a piece of blue tack on the nobbin. Problem solved.

    Threepio/Beaker's leg joints are also very loose. He stands pretty well but if I were to bump the bookcase I think he'll go over.

    Chewie's Bowcaster and Hans's Blaster are also warped....but I fully expected that. The only lightsaber that's warped is Kermie's. That's because they packaged it goofy.

    Otherwise I have no complaints. All the paint apps are solid and the details are pretty nice. If I get down to Disney this year I may pick up a second set just to keep in the box.

    Here's a horrid camera phone pic of the figures loose.

    Disney packaged something Goofy?

    how much was the total?
  19. Bellygrub

    Bellygrub Well-Known Member

    About $105.00 or $13.00 a figure (it makes it easier to justify things when I break it down individually). I say about because they were technically a gift and the bill was hidden from me :D

    Wocka wocka! :o

    oh thats not bad, I guess thats $25 shipping? Did you get these from Disney online? I WISH it was $13 a figure...I just want Link and Sam Eagle. The $20 price given the size of the figures puzzles me
