People are allowed to buy 20 troopers if they want to. Yes it sucks for everyone else but thats the world.. some people get what they want and some don't.. If you got their first and you have the chance to take what you want then do it. There is no law that says you can't.

Im feeling the itch to grab a couple more just because i'd love to have 3 next to ahsoka and rex. Just the visual of it would look amazing. Whats another $70 right? fml.
Yeah lol that's what happened with me. Grabbed two, started visualizing some cool displays with the Ahsoka and grabbed 2 more. Honestly I'd say go for it. If you don't now it's gonna be harder down the road. Plus Clones always appreciate in value and especially even more now with these guys being WM exclusives. It's a good investment in my opinion.

Honestly, even if you only wanted 1, if you see them and can afford it I’d say buy them all and sell them at cost to fellow collectors. I’ve already seen one asshat scalper in my area with it listed for $85 on Kijiji, so better if we start buying them out so they can’t. That’s pretty much going to be my philosophy moving forward, especially when the Mandos show up.

Yeah that’s a good point. Better to grab what you can and help a few fellows out, than to let someone sell them for 60% or more in some cases.

Damn.. i wouldn't be against paying someone $10-$15 more for a figure only because its a sure thing especially ifs its already gone from all stores. The extra cost is like a finders fee type deal. Id probably save as much on gas by not going onthe hunt but $85? Thats getting a bit out of hand.. especially when its still sort of available at retail. I can understand that price once its time on the shelves is long and passed.

Damn i remember when Heavy Mando started restocking at TRU all of a sudden they started showing up for sale on FB and Kijiji and the image photo was the dude still holding the thing in his car. LMAO. what a SOB. but the idea was the they were praying on the people that didn't know they were stocked at TRU and then end up paying the scalper $20 more for it.

Attitude is certainly much different here than a few years ago when I bought 3 Mace Windu's and people wanted my head... Cause buying them 3 weeks before Christmas as 1 for me and 2 for gifts was totally unconsiable lol

Well if a scalper took the last 2 on the peg from the WM I got it from he's gonna be not too pleased. The paint QC on the helmet was just atrocious on them. Trust me you guys would have left'em there like I did.

There’s one on there right now for $100. A friend and I are contemplating making fake email accounts just to screw with these people and flood their Kijiji messages with spam. Hates the Scalpers, we do. HATES THEM PRECIOUS! Gollum, Gollum...

Well the difference is that for display purposes 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 clones isn't unheard of. But how is displaying three maces next to each other make any sense? That's the idea.. If a saw a guy walking out with 5 vaders i'd be pissed.. but if he was walking out with 5 clones i can't say much cause some people want alot of them. I myself have 1 but im even considering getting 2 more because of how i want to display them.

Walking out with 4 clones or 4 ahsokas is very different.

LMAO.. if a fellow collector was out there and he snagged them all up and sold each one for a $5 profit on top id be ok with that.. collecting isn't cheap and if helping others helps you too then why not. Especially if by doing so you are cutting off the scalpers. But then there are people that don't even collect but stay in the know for profit reasons only and those people can burn in the pits of mordor. lmao

It’s a tricky line. If it’s a hard to find figure, it’s understandable if people are upset over someone having 3-5. Do we really need one to open, one to display and one to hide away? BUT, if it’s that persons money, then who are we to dictate how they spend anything?
I myself always army build, but I try and source from online retailers instead of in store, so people on the hunt have figures to buy. Everyone’s a little different.
