Wedge...did you pay through PayPal or by credit card outside of PayPal? Also, do you know if we have to pay upfront and our account will be charged immediately...or is there a disclaimer that they won't charge our account until the items come in? I have concerns about paying upfront.

Good find Bespin-81. I bought a few Black series 6 inch figures.

This site should give you a referral bonus.

I thought about it, staring at the different 6inch offerings for a good 20 minutes : Sandtrooper Corporal, Chewie... I even considered buying the biker scout...I've finally made all the way up to paypal with 2 Han Stormtrooper, mainly for the nicely sculpted helmet I've seen on pics from SDCC and... I just wasn't able to pull the trigger.

I'll see when/if I find these at retail and cherry-pick the ones I really want then, but for now I'm just too much into Hot Toys and SSC.

EDIT : Great find indeed Bespin-81  :)`

I paid by paypal (technically my credit card that is linked to it, though). At this time, since he is just starting his business, you do have to pay up-front because he doesn't have the cash flow or credit with his supplier yet to be able to charge later.

He has been very open and upfront with people on the JTA message board so far: http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=13869. And he is always available to be contacted with any questions via the email or phone number posted on his site.

Noticed at walmart.ca that 6" Han, Greedo and Leia have been rolled back to $10. I wonder if that's also true in store?

Wave 1 and Fett are also rolled back to $10 but of course they're sold out online.

Nope....my local walmart still had all three of these figures scanning at $22.92 tonight.  Looks like the $10.00 price is just online for now.

Some Walmarts including both Burlington ones have these on rollback. One Burlington store had rollback signs while the other did not but all 3 figures scanned at $10.

One can use the store availability feature to see if a store has the figures on rollback although sometimes the information isn't available. One thing to ignore online is whether the item (at least for these 3 items) is actually in stock at a store. Online it says both Burlington stores are out of stock but one store has all 3 and the other has 2 out of 3. YMMV

I was in Walmart at Hwy 7 and the 400 today and I can confirm Han, Leia and Greedo were all $10 - price sticker on the shelf.  They had about 3 or 4 of each in stock.

I went to a Target and a Walmart in Ohio over the weekend.  I didn't see any of the new six inch figures other than an Anakin which I picked up for $20.  No Biker Scout or Jabba yet.
