The pricing is so completely nuts. That's $95 after tax. I paid $135 for the 6" Snowspeeder, and that was when it was new, not on clearance or anything. It is 10x the toy that this completely repainted release is. Total cash-in Baby Yoda money-grab from Amazon, as if they didn't already make enough billions this year.

I am just happy that it's just a very scene-specific figure, with nothing new that I don't already have. I'll wait til the price drop to half like most Amazon exclusives end up at, if I buy it at all.

Well, I did pre-order it, but am still debating if I want to cancel or not.  I love Speeder Bikes and Biker Scouts and they finally released a grey one.

Got a shipping notice for my credit collection Mando. Let's see if it comes in an envelope...

Edit: My package, a box, arrived. Minty fresh. Very happy with this figure. Really like the concept as it is reminiscent of both concept art figures and the holiday special Boba.

This is getting crazy with Amazon. I have always in the past seen prices go up above MSRP for items that were out of stock from Amazon proper and being sold by third party. But now I'm seeing items "shipped and sold by amazon" priced at the lowest third party price. I was watching the 6" 40th anniversary ESB fett for a few weeks since it came back in stock, as shipped and sold by Amazon, but at $40.19. I looked at the other options and this is exactly the price one of the third party scalper stores was selling at.

So it appears Amazon is now in the business of scalping as well. You can no longer trust Amazon's price is the retail price even if it says shipped and sold by Amazon.

"Darth Cujo"......Amazon executive clears his throat....puts on his you can trust me face.  "You can trust that in order to protect all consumers and ensure that you can purchase the items that you want from your trusted supplier of choice Amazon, we have moved to a market pricing model. This way we can ensure you as a consumer are not forced to make your purchases from 3rd parties who often do not have the same gold standard of return policy that Amazon offers."   

You see Darth Cujo Amazon is not scalping.   :winking0071: :)
