Seriously? I'm having a heck of a time finding any cheaper. My local shop sells them for $30 for large sets and $15 for expansions, which begs the question of what I -should- be paying. o___o

Here in my locale it's 15 for expansions, 30 for the big ships (Falcon, shuttle) and 40 for the Core set.. I'm in the Midwest of the USA, Illinois. Though I did just get 4 core sets at Target for 20 bucks each.. and I like to get ships from MM as they are nice and inexpensive.. but I have a local shop I want to support as well.. so.. there's that.. lol

For those in the UK, Amazon appear to be offering a very good price on the Transport and Tantive. Also, Boba Fett and the preorder for Imperial Aces can be found for good prices here:

Honestly if you can get cheaper, do it by all means.
