I for one am boycotting this figure.
I met 10 501's in the flesh and they are all ********! The are also scalpers who work at Walmart & Target as stock boys. (100% confirmation they buy cases before they hit the floor to help out the other 501's or sell them on ebay. And the best part these fucknuts get a suck off from Hasbro. The figure is lame with the Vaders fist logo and flag.

I am all for helping people but darth Vader is not the symbol of charity. Vaders fist...dumb. He killed kids not helped Ronald McDonald house.

How about re-relaesing the real plain white stromtrooper instead.

I am in the same boat as you I have 7 of the 10 so I have to finish now.

Simple rule: If you dont go early you find squat. (Most cases..9 outta 10) Luckily I have access to walmart & Target by my work. Very true, no matter what state there is always that HW guy in the morning............ ???

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Possible VTSC Wave 2?
« on: April 29, 2006, 01:18 AM »
No more Vaders, we had enough!  How many times do you need him plus he already got the Vintage treatment. Unfair!
Hasbro, Dont pull the kid card out because he is more than present in the basic line. You rehashed him twice in the Basic. (#2 is on his way)  >:(

I am all for SA Luke Bespin, Jawa & Leai. Snowtrooper I am ok with, i got my fill with the semi rehash but at least he will be SA. I am kinda bored with that one but I still dig it. ;D
Personally I would have loved a SA Han Bespin or Gammorean Gaurd over Vader. :D

How about a good OTC Emporer instead? :-*

I work really hard to get the new stuff. I wake up extra early at hit walmart & Target on the way to work. I have been "fortuante" to find 7 of the 10 UGH figures.
I am not a packaged collector but there was no way I could pass on them when I saw them. I got sucked in with UGH Cody & ATAT, then came Anakin & Obi, then Snowtrooper and today Scorch & Grevious. With 3 left to go I have to finish the damn set. ???

I could easily live without them. It was actually smart on Hasbros part, its a traffic generator. It keeps you coming back even when you do not need to.
With no movie in sight they need to keep the buzz alive. In the Chicago area it works. There are so many scalpers coming outta the woodwork.
I was so happy to beat one today by 1 minute to the UGH Scorch & Grevious. Very satisfying indeed.  ;D
I was at a show this past weekend and 90% were only going for 15-25 max. So I do not think it will kill the after market. I refuse to pay higher than retail.

For those of you who have not found them you are not missing much.

Price increases are a fact of life. Oil is used for plastic an such. 7 bucks is too high.
TRU 7, Target 7, Walmart 6.5 how can Hasbro lower the price?
Here is my suggestion, I would see the lame a@s holo figure and stand with the tampoed name on it be put back into the articulation or lower the price by giving them the boot! ;D
I have 3 complete sets of the dumb holo dudes. I dont want them in red! At least make more characters, C3P0 or R2.
Red...blah! :-X

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Any TSC Pegwarmers?
« on: April 29, 2006, 12:50 AM »
In the Chicago area the trend is:

Scuzzy Wal-Marts: Vader & Lushros
TRU: Bib Fortuna, Chewie & Yoda
Target: Derlin & Yoda  (And ROTS vehicle asst, I know thats not the question at hand but they are warming pegs. Kinda scary for the future assortments)

The worst part is Hasbro is dumping that 500th Vader on us again with some new bespin boxes. "Its a trap to buy him again!" ??? :-[

If you dont go first thing before work you aint finding squat. 3 more UGHs basic figs to go......

Saga Collection '06 / Re: VOTC/VTSC - Buying Extras?
« on: April 28, 2006, 07:53 PM »
I bought an extra set to keep packaged. I did the same with the previous VOTC. They look great mounted on the wall together. I am not a big packaged collector but for this absolutly!

I also bought extra Tuskens and scouts. At this point I will buy one more each of the others to order the Flanneled Beard king himself. I can use them for customs.

Word! :o

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Please Vote Willrow Hood
« on: April 28, 2006, 05:10 PM »
I asked everyone at my work, email contacts & family to vote for him, even the ones who were not interested in Star Wars.
My girlfriend even did the same because she know how much I want this figure. ;D i
Last I counted I gathered 110 votes.

I have a question about that voting poll: Why is a SA Darth Maul on there! We just got one. SA Luke will get made eventually.
as for the Solo twins i rather stick to whats "real". not that what if stuff of EU. :-X

 3. SA Luke Bespin
 4. Smuggler Lando
 5. Luke Snowspeeder pilot Resculpt
 6. White IG-88 (in bespin metal scrap room) - Redeco

 9. Zuckass Resculpt
10. Regular SA Luke Hoth that can ride a Taun-Taun

I included 2 backup choices in case my #1 get voted for fans choice & #2 Luke Bespin gets confimed for the VSTC.
