Last Jedi Wave 1

Postby Grant_C » Mon Sep 25, 2017 2:19 pm

Dam it.

Can't resist a Luke Skywalker Jedi Master.

Saw these Last Jedi figures for sale last month. Decided to go pick up a Luke and he seems to be sold out everywhere.

There also seems to be a limited supply of Rose and Paige. Dave Tree suggested that its because these are first issue figures so more likely to sell before the rest.

I'm I just having bad luck?

What turned out to be a hunt for Luke, has become an obsession.

I'm gonna need BB-8's help and a trip to Ireland at this rate.

My thoughts are that Luke is probably a long awaited figure for many of us, and most of us will pay the going rate for him - that and with my experience locally, where there is little or no figures on the shelves, it could cause difficulties in finding him.
In saying that, I did see plenty of him in Forbidden Planet recently, at £10.99, which I felt was a bit too dear, but may be worth a try? :)

Yeah, tried:

Forbidden Planet
ASDA
Smyths
WH Smiths
Argos
Sainsburys

and Cardiff Film and Comic Con and there is exactly zero Lukes. :?

I can see plenty on eBay being flipped. Don't particularly want to pay additional P+P either so hoping to find in the wild.

He seems to be getting snapped up, alright....
I'll keep my eyes peeled for him around here and will let you know if I see him anywhere :)

Cheers mate.

I'm going to stop off at a few places on the way home to see if I can find him.

I've had no problem finding any of them luckily. Strangely enough Paige & Rose seem to be the most common here. Luke does seem to be less commom though.

Happy to try and pick anything up :D

I just got back from picking 8 more up to finish these.
