All too true.
I've seen probably a good 50 of these in stores now, and almost all of them have absolutely HORRIBLE paint allignment on the helmet. Especially around the frown. Originally I was gonna army build these before the regular Trooper launched, but that really stopped me. Even now with the deep discount on him I'm hesitant to do so
That's the only reason I decided that I wanted this release, from all the photos and comments about the likeness. At $4 a pop I could have gotten enough to replace the head on all my Han figures.I don't see how you pass up a solid Vintage Collection figure at $3.80, it's the best Han sculpt to date - forget about the helmet!
They're finally showing as no longer available on Target's website.
Funny story about how terribly this whole exclusive was handled - I only ever saw one in stores and I bought that to open since the card was severely bent. I was worried I might not be able to find a decent one after they were clearanced out, but was relieved when I saw that they were periodically showing up on the website - even if they were full price. So I ordered four, intending to keep only the best one and return the other three.
I returned the ones I didn't want at my local store and the next morning I was curious if the store had put them on the shelves or shipped them back. When I checked the stock levels at the store it showed they had two on hand so I hurried over there after they opened and found two of the three I'd returned hanging on a clearance peg with no price and when scanned came up "item not found". When I checked out they didn't come up on the register either so a manager checked and saw that they were salvage and sold them to me for a $1 a piece! o-o
Now I see that DS & BBTS have them for Sept. preorder at $2 and $3 dollars higher than Target's original full price. I know a couple had already been found a couple weeks ago at a local discount store so I don't think I'll be surprised to see these also show up at Ross or similar stores by Christmas.
Impressive they were still available at all at your store. The day they hit $3.89 I managed to pick up the last two from my store. It sort of almost makes up for buying the first two on the day of release at $12.99.Yes, I was a bit annoyed, lol. So, now I need to decide what to do with the extra 2. :\
If you read back several posts, I mentioned these were 2 of the 3 I had returned to the store the previous day from my Target.com order. When I saw online that the in-stock quantity had jumped at that store, I hurried over there first thing to get them. Didn't know how much they'd be 'til I checked out though. Could have easily been full price.Impressive they were still available at all at your store. The day they hit $3.89 I managed to pick up the last two from my store.

It's so strange that these still seem to turn up in stores. Half price is still a good deal. I'd pick up a couple more if I ever came across them again.Already had one but picked up 3 more last week at half price! Going to keep at least one carded...question is do I just use the other two as army builder stormies instead of grabbing more rogue 1 troopers. Or keep them all carded
