None.  However, I have only seen the Carkoon wave.  I will buy 3 from the Carkoon wave but it will probably be later in the year.  I just want some other figures more right now like that Hoth wave...if I find it here soon.

I just bought a few loose figs over at that other site, but apart from that I have resisted it all as of yet. :o

Not much...  Between price hikes and stuff just not being abundant, plus the fact that quality's down a bit in my eyes, I just haven't bought a ton but what I need to "keep up".

-AT-AT Driver
-Veers
-Derlin
-Gonk
-Han Carbonite
-Leia Boussh
-Bib Fortuna
-Barada
-Chewbacca Chained

I got Chewie as an impulse buy at Wal-Mart the other night and Barada was a gift or I'd have passed him quite easily.  The boys each got a Fett since they don't have him, but I didn't buy them for the kids, their mother did.  One bought Han Carbonite too because he just had to get that money out of his hand. :)  BTW he also complained about it when he opened it and realized it "didn't move or do anything".  Kids have really enlightened me to this hobby.

I'll be dealing with one Bib short of seeing him on clearance...  Han, I may get a 2nd due to the genericness of his torso and stuff.  I'd prefer to do that with a sale though.  Gonk I'm definitely getting a second because it's just good diorama filler.  Veers I'm debating on a 2nd for SOME of his parts I can cast, but at the same time the figure is disappointing to me.  Derlin I'll likely pick up a second for future parts casting.  Leia Boussh I'll only have the one figure.  And the AT-AT Driver I'm just waiting to find at Wal-Mart to buy some extras of him.  I won't army build at $7 a figure I didn't really want a resculpt of all that badly in the first place.  He's cool though so I'd like a few more...  Not a ton though.  I'd take 10 if I found them in abundance for a time though.

Waiting really for the Coruscant Wave so I can nab lots of the Utapau Grunt...  Need a nice army of those I'm afraid, and I'm also afraid finding a nice army won't be fun at all.  :(

I decided to go New Force and bought the whole Hoth wave.  I wouldn't buy ALL of them normally at retail, but, I'm paying LESS than retail per figure for these, including shipping. I was striking out early on, so this saved a lot of driving and hassle. Plus, there's something about opening a brand new case that's all mine! Turns out I would want one of each anyway.

Hopefully with the later waves I'll practice more moderation, as I don't want every Saga figure.   I'm satisfied with the ones I got from the Carkoon wave, very nice.

I consider myself caught up, but if I happen to find an At-At driver or two while I'm out doing regular errands, I'll pick one up. I've bought two of every new sculpt and one of every rehash except for one additional snowtrooper. The only one I'm army building with, from what's been released, is the afore mentioned At-At driver (have my minimum of 10) and I picked up one additional Veers for customizing. I might pick up one more Reekin for a custom.
