The clamp-on armor and hat is... also present. It adds about $7 to the cost of the figure, and only
I'd suggest you get the single Saga Legends figure (originally about $6) or the Return of the Jedi 4-pack from earlier this year - which was originally $20 for 4 figures. Obviously there's more going on here than inflation, and obviously your average consumer doesn't know the going rate for an action figure. (Note: if you are reading anything about toys I have ever written, you are not the average consumer.) This is a rotten deal, but if it ends up on clearance down the road or otherwise sold for below SRP it's a weird and delightful keeper. But if you have kids, please, just buy them the 4-pack. This is a bizarre look at what could be if we deviate more from the movies, which I really do enjoy in non-movie years. In movie years, I don't have patience for this kind of stuff - and I'm hoping Hasbro kills this format of figure and accessory this year.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
