I always order from BigBad. It is more convenient. In the end I may pay slightly more, but that isn't always the case. Even with the exchange the cost is sometimes lower. Plus I don't have to hunt for things then.

Did anyone by the HasCon Cobra Commander? I almost bought it but that ab crunch just wrecks everything for me. Normally, my collecting habits count me as a completist but I can't bring myself around to buying this one. I have the Sideshow Cobra Commanders which helps me on the decision to skip this one.
The ab crunch doesn't look bad on all the figures but in this case I think it looks terrible.

I used to order from BBTS all the time. Then they got really big and jacked up their prices on everything. They used to charge retail, but now they add a couple bucks premium on everything. And suddenly I got hit by customs on everything I ordered from them where as I never used to.

I dont mind ordering from them on occasion but it depends on the item(s). And you're right the hunt is a pain.

As for CC, I passed. It's a fugly design that represents nothing to me. Never saw it in the comics, it's not a remake. Not worth the premium. I realize it's supposed to be over the top but I dont like it so i passed. I have to remain selective with this line. It's expensive enough getting the ones i like so I skip the rest.

I ordered from BBTS a large order with multiple figures.  They all came in one big box stuff all in with no care to protecting the contents.   Fortunately most of the items arrived in decent shape.  But about 5 figures came in bad condition that were unacceptable and it was completely the fault of the person who packed the box.  The lack of customer service at BBTS is what made me look else where for an online supplier.   Currently I am using DORKSIDE.  So far so good.

I have always thought about trying Dorkside. I visited their booth at the last Star Wars Celebration and bought a few things there. They seemed pretty good to deal with.

Got my Retro A.W.E. Striker today.  Stocktrack showed 8 on hand but nothing was on the floor.  Asked the lady to look up SKU and she said there are indeed 8 and 2 should be on the floor.  Then she asked me to show her a picture and she saw it and was, "I remember that!  I put 2 out yesterday and some guy bought both.  I'll go to the back and grab one for you."

She came out with the case (2 per case) and I took the one I wanted and she put the other on the shelf.  Was funny cause she asked if I wanted both or just 1.

How much was the AWE Striker?  I've been thinking of getting that as well.  I never owned one as a kid and it looks cool. 

VAMP would've been a better choice though, but I'm sure that's coming if Hasbro is smart.

Turns out I never got the awe striker during the 25th days. So now I really want it. Hopefully can find it. My local stores dont even say they carry it. Or vintage star wars. Or retro star wars.... vaughan walmarts have been awful lately.

Walmart.ca shows it as $35.

Yeah I've never seen it in stock. Just like almost anything I'm interested in these days.

amazon cancelled my storm shadow
Mine hasnt been cancelled yet but I've seen a few others have been. Pretty pathetic when they are the exclusive seller on that item.
