    Greetings to everyone in the Waco group !

    Joe here - from the Killeen FanForce group.

    I have the following figures available for sale AT THE SAME COST as you would pay at Wally World... ($5.40 for Basic figures, and $10.81 for Deluxe figures)

    1 - Chewbacca Mynock Hunt
    1 - Han Solo Hoth Rescue
    1 - R2-D2 Droid Factory Flight
    1 - Boba Fett Pit of Carkoon
    2 - Deluxe Geonosis Spider Droids
    2 - Deluxe Super Battle Droid with Droid Factory Mold
    2 - Obi-Wan Kamino Confrontation
    2 - Jango Fett Kamino Confrontation

    No, I'm NOT a scalper. I purchased my figures in bulk from www.EntertainmentEarth.com because I'm sick and tired of running all over town just to find the same old "shelf warmers", and I am selling the extras I do not need for the same cost as what I shelled out for them.

    All figures are case fresh and in VERY good condition.

    I live in Nolanville, but I spent a lot of time in the Temple area. If anyone is interested in purchasing some/any/all of these figures, please drop me a line at TejasJoe@hotmail.com letting me know which one(s) you want, and we can work out arrangements to get them out of my hands and into yours.

    If I've made you suspicious, you can always ask Tandeer (Debby), our Killeen CR. I've sold her a LOT of 12" figures at $20.00 a peice when the book values of each was well above that. :)

    Thanks for your time.

    Joseph,Glad too see there are still some honest collectors in central texas.We have at least 3 hardcore scaplers that will hoard everything before you have a chance to lay your hand on anything.But a action figure shortage for us means a shortage for them because no store here has anything new since about february.So in reality they cant make enough money because there just is not any product to scalp off of.

    You are correct in that presumption. As long as the new figures aren't available for scalpers, they can't get our hard-earned money. And they shouldn't be able to sell a figure currently available "somewhere" on the market for an excessive amount more than what they paid for it.

    That is why I am getting rid of my extras at the same cost that they arrived to me for.

    I've been purchasing mint cases from EntertainmentEarth.com, for $64.99, and when you break that down for a 12-figure case, that's only $5.41 per figure. Same price as the basic figures at Wally World plus state tax. and the 6 figure deluxe cases come out to $10.83 per figure - only 2 cents more than a deluxe fig at Wal-Mart plus tax...

    I offered the figures to the Killeen group first, but nobody responded. Then again, the only two that ever show up for the meetings anymore are myself and Tandeer.

    Also - just in case anyone is interested - Toys-R-Us in Killeen had the Imperial Forces Saga 4-pack for $19.99 yesterday. I picked up one, so the new figures are finally starting to make their rounds to Central Texas.

    May I interject?

    Next time you're at Target, take a sharpie with you.

    On all the StarWars figures that are there, write "Hi Dan!" on the back.

    Then just wait for the fun to unravel!

    You didn't see the Green Lantern or Martian Manhunter? I could have gotten both but I'm saving for new Star Wars.
