Yeah, I hadn't gotten into it yet to figure it out, but I'd assumed I'd go with one of each torso - but one of each dome makes more sense.

This thing is a great idea for kids, but a total cluster **** for collectors. 

Thanks for all that info, I'll dig through it in a little bit.  But at a glance, if it's $21.95 for two figures, and I'd need to do that at least 12.5 times to get one with each dome, I'm looking at about $300 with tax... I'm going to have a really hard time justifying that.  I briefly saw Scott post in the thread you linked to that he's going with only new domes... how many of those are there?

If that Endor set at TRU was $99.99, this thing is going to cost $499.99

I would think so. The space at Tatooine Traders is pretty much smack-dab in the middle of the store, so they'd seriously have to renovate to get rid of it.

Your best/better bet is to head to Once Upon a Toy at Downtown Disney, they have a four-person build station that's pretty much right in the middle of all the Star Wars merchandise. Also, they have attendants who are more than willing to go into the stockroom and locate any parts that might not be out on the floor for you. That was my experience last year, I will be back there in June for the final Star Wars weekend, I'll update this thread if my experience is any different.

Okay, thanks.  I think I need to start saving my pennies... I'm hoping to put together one droid of each distinct color scheme / pattern - if that's even an easy thing to sort through and figure out.

I'm thinking about driving out there this Christmas when I'm back in Tampa for the holidays.  Is it reasonable to expect the build a droid to still be a thing at that point?

How are you guys finding all these Jedi Temple Guards?  I haven't seen a single one. 

Why are 5POS figures $9.99 at TRU? Is this so they can put them on sale for $6.99 in the future?

It's the final stages of the ol' articulation bait and switch. 

I was starting to think some of these Legends figures were alright, then today I got Bly and the Endor versions of Luke, Leia, and Han.

What a bunch of clunkers.  The Han's the only decent one.  The Luke looks deformed.

Ugh... Jedi Temple Guard and Chopper - the two that I can't find anywhere.

I'm starting to get tempted to overpay for them on eBay just to be done with it.

Sign me up!

And, thanks!

Hmmm, that is some interesting stuff there. I don't see them trawling out high quality SA figures for $7.99. Guessing these will be 5 POA, let the rioting commence.  :P

Hopefully it'll be somewhere between the two extremes... They sold the reduced articulation as a way to cut prices, then over the course of the first year or so, the price creeps up by a third.  They could just have a little more to them without being SA figures... maybe better accessories?

Saga Legends / Re: Saga Legends "Mission Series" Figure 2-Packs

Wow.  Just ordered 5 Mission Series 2-packs for $42 shipped. 

After ordering the troop transport and 6 Legends figures for about $50.

I mean... if I hadn't bought these yet, $17.99 with 20% off and free shipping would be a pretty solid deal.
