All,
I just bought the 1/35 PT Boat Crew on ebay for 24 dollars. There are four more available. Not sure if that's a good price but I had to have it.

Just saw Italeri 1/35th scale PT Boat Crew on Ebay for $29.50 + $7.50 shipping. Sounds like you found a better deal Mark. I'm going have to just check out the hobby shop today and find out what Kit #5606 really goes for. The Seller on Ebay is from New York which means it will be another month before this kit shows up in Milwaukee.

Hi there.

I just converted the $38.99 CDN (which is what one shop is selling it for up here) to US dollars and got $32.98.

Ten figures for about $33.00 works out to $3.30/figure.

If you got your figures for $24.00 US it works out to $2.40/figure but you need to factor in the shipping.

Even at $3.30/figure it is not too bad a price compared to Tamiya and 1st Generation Dragon figures. The Italeri PT Boat Crew figures are a lot cheaper than resin ones.

Just returned from the Hobby Shop and to my surprise two Italeri #5606 kits were in stock, one was spoken for. Price was $29.99 + State Tax came to $31.67.
