I found four different UGHs at two Walmarts this morning.  One had Fett, a Hoth Stormie and 2 Gen Grievous.  The other had 2 Scorch, Fett, a Stormie and Grievous.  The Scorches had Luke and Yoda holos, the Fetts had Maul and Palpatine, the Stormies had Maul and Palpy, GG had Vader and Palpy.

So there is absolutely no difference between these figs and regular figs, ither thatn packaging and a silver base and mini fig? Ive been kinda out of the loop as far as this ultimate hunt thing goes. I saw 2 snow troopers yesterday at my local Wally World. Should I have picked them up?

That's correct, the figures are the same.  So unless you're an opener wanting a silver base and silver holo, there's not much point.  If you're a carded completeist, then yeah, you should have got them, but I suspect you're not.  They aren't bad trade bait, but I think now that Walmart is getting them (and guys seem to be finding rather substantial numbers of them) I think their value will drop considerably.

I've had horrible luck finding these at retail (not a single one), but then again we don't get **** here.  Really, they are not worth anything on the secondary market now...and in a few months they'll be a dime a dozen.

I'd like to have a full set of UGH just because they look kind of neat, but I'm not going to break the bank in doing so.

I think paying $7-10 a pop is reasonable.

If I had a UGH Vader it sounds like I would get shafted for it  :P

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.

Truer words have not been spoken.  I pass on these on a daily basis.

Ahh, but we always want what we haven't found yet- It's why we are here hanging out on these boards!
I finally started coming across these. Of course I found duplicates of some, still need others, and found a few damaged ones and opened them. Now I'm thinking wouldn't it be nice to have a full set of the vac-metal bases? Or maybe the silver mini-figs? I'm glad I found some finally, but I wonder if it will only lead to more headaches as I contemplate the above...

I've found five in the past week- AT-AT Driver, Snowtrooper, Cody, Obi-Wan, and Anakin.

They're neat as my carded versions of these characters, but thankfully I have no desire to complete the set. I've never seen a regular Scorch at retail; there's no way in hell I'd find a UGH version.

I think it's a neat little gimmick, but one that need go no further. Once they start doing paint variants or unique figures (other than Demise of Grievous) as UGHs, I'd be done.

Anyone else heard the rumors that 10 more UGH figs will appear later in the year?  Not surprising I guess.
