I'd say the most popular of these figures in my area are as follows:
- Destroyer Droid (always sells fast - great sculpt and the shield is a great bonus)
- Astromech Droid
- Tusken Raider
- Darth Maul
- Gungan Warrior
...after that, the others just stare at other all day. Well, Aurra sort of sells - just slow. Those pilots though sit there forever. I know I don't want more of them. Even if I had several Naboo Fighters. Most pilots to me are just kinda boring - that goes for the OT as well. For some reason the only pilots that I ever really like are Snowspeeder ones. I love those actually.
The figures you listed as popular, except for the Gungan, are the same ones that sold thru fast in my area. Yoda also sold fast. The Gungan and Mawhonic were all gone when I was at Five Below a couple days ago, but they were slow sellers. The Jedi, Pilots, and Aurra are "peg warming" a la the TVC Skiff Guards and Padmes. I'm sure they'll eventually move during the holdiays.
I would have been all over army building the Naboo Pilots and Gungans at $5, but I got plenty from Amazon when the TVC repacks were $2-3 each. I did end up getting something like 6 or 8 Destroyers, as well as several Tuskens (It's hard to remember how many i picked up at Wal-Mart way back when, and what I hoarded from 5 Below) so I guess I am part of the reason why those were scarce.
