I'm at 16 right now, 15 loose and 1 carded. I was lucky enough to find 5 at $4 a pop last night. :)

Received my 25th one from a trade yesterday.

I had questionable success getting my brother to pick up some scouts on the East coast. I asked him if he could keep an eye out for them and pick them up for me ONLY if they were on clearance. First, he couldn't find them despite my directions, so I asked a really good buddy of mine if he would do the same. My buddy picked up 2 for me. Told my brother they did in fact exist and the next time he went, he found them. Seems both forgot or ignored the important stipulation, ONLY if they were on clearance, because they weren't. :P My brother also picked up 2 for me. But here's where the clearance instructions had an impact; my brother (WITHOUT MY PROMPTING) put 8 more on layaway in hopes that they will go on clearance soon. :-\

The only clearances on VTSC I've seen have been small ones at WM ($9.96 hardly counts), and at Target there was of course a larger one however by the time it hit there were only Han/Greedo and VERY few were left anyway... 

The VTSC line sold like mad out here really. 

Not every WM got them though, it was very hit-or-miss really.  Some had them falling off the pegs, others had no pegspace even for them to get them in.  Target had lots, but sold through them mostly.  TRU & KB had the usual piles, but Scouts never lasted.

I'm actually getting quite upset that my WM haven't started clearancing these out.  I want to get a couple more tuskens and biker scouts and there a few still hanging around on the pegs.

A Wal Mart near me has VOTC on Clearance...for $9 each...ouch dont tempt me like that....the problem is they only have Greedo and Han Carbonite left...but I want some $3 Greedo's for customs...it is worth it for the Articulation alone.  Oh and to keep it on topic...I have 12 and will be stopping there.

I keep waiting for WM to clearance these figures around here as well.  Ours has gobs of them, though I'm not sure how many Scouts are left.  There are a couple of hanging displays (end of aisle type things) full of VTSC, and piles of them on the top of the aisles.  I'd definitely pick up more Scouts if they clearance, as well as some more Tuskens (and maybe an extra Greedo).

Once these things hit clearance, they were gone. pretty much all VTSC flew off the shelves, even at the measly $10.19 clearance.

I've never once seen any VTSC at any WM's in my area - be it clearance or not.  ::)

I'm eyeing a pile that are on $9.96 clearance (wow ::) ) at a local WM...  Waiting for them to go a little further because there's Tuskens there.  Scouts are ALL long gone in my area though.  :(  They went at full price for the most part.  The only ones with them, perhaps, are KB Toys in the malls...  They sell them for a couple $$$'s more though too.

I added 6 more over the last few weeks from various places - mostly wal-marts.  I'm up to 23 now.  I'll probably look to pick up two more now that I've made it this far.

I just got 2 more VTSC Scouts yesterday from the Hasbrotoyshop sale.  That makes 3 loose, 1 carded for me.
