I am probably in the minority, but I really loved the Force Unleashed games (probably because my oldest daughter loved it and it was something we could do together). I know it went against the "Rule of Two", but we know that that rule has been broken for hundreds of years leading up to Darth Sidious.
Anyway, I love Starkiller... the robotic one is so cool, but just the dark robes figure is sweet. They, of course, finally came out with an individual packaged Starkiller in the Vintage EU collection. Well, I can't find it at any of the stores... not Wal-Mart, not Target. Only place I can find it is on eBay or Amazon and they are selling between $26-40!
Why would they release these in so small numbers and in select locations???
Anyone have a store that sells them, where I might be able to pick one up off you?

Hasbro do this all the time. More often than not there is a character in each wave that is only available as one per case. The other characters are usually 2 per case. And to make things worse, some of these waves only appear to be available for a very short time and / or have limited distribution.
Getting the stuff at retail in the UK is a real nightmare. I havn't seen any new 'vintage' figures here since the Phantom Menace wave came out in January.
