Oh well it was available online for a few hours before it sold out.. So if anyone can get me one I'll gladly buy one.

Try 6 minutes. They really dropped the ball on this one. It took me 2 hrs. just to get the thing in my cart and when I was finally able to check out it was already sold out.

Hey guys! I just got back from Comic-Con, and I have a few extra 501st Stormtroopers. If you're interested, PM me. I'll sell them for $25.00 a piece. This is pretty reasonable considering you don't have to pay shipping, or gas-money for a drive to San Diego!

Thanks for all the PMs, guys! All my extras are spoken for now!

I'm also going crazy trying to find a 501st stormtrooper. Just was on e-bay and they are going for about $20 + the shipping which is usually around $7 or $8. If anyone can also help me out I'd be very thankful!

Actually, the $20 doesn't sound that bad. They were $15 at SDCC.

exactly, if you bought it online at starwarstoys.com--its about the same price or slightly higher than ebay. I dont know whats the fuss about. for 15-I could get 2-3 saga sandies. the insignia is not even original, the stand and banner sucks In my opinion http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Actually, if you were fortunate enough to get the 501st from Hasbro online, you'd be paying for the shipping through them. So, $20 on Ebay or elsewhere is reasonable.

Please, do not complain about paying $20 for a figure that cost $15. I waited in line for almost an hour to get mine on preview night at CC. Not to mention you had to lug the things around and then either ship them back home or pack them on a plane. (Unless you were one of the minority that drove.)

I could understand complaining if they were $30 or more (like the over inflated price Brian's Toys would sell them) but not $20. A lot of collectors sweated in line to get these things and paying them a few extra bucks for their time and energy should not be an issue.

shadow trooper,

I am agreeing with you. $20 and maybe S/H for 5-6 is very reasonable. I think the price on ebay is about the same as starwarstoys.com if you include their high S/H cost.

An online toy store just listed the 501st for $24.95, so $20 is not bad at all.
