Zero and probably will stay there.  I know this is a great figure but 12.99 seems too much for the OT equivalent of a SA clone.  Like most of the VOTC, I'll get it at clearance at half that, if not I'll be ok.
You are never alone when there's a clone.

None- I plan to get one or two if possible. Trenchcoat Han and X-Wing Luke come first though...

Why? Han Trenchcoat and Luke X-Wing will be 'egwarming for months. The Biker Scout won't last an hour! I was lucky to be there shortly after they set out a case, before the no-good-McDonalds-breakfast-loving-scalpers set their grubby paws on it! Well, different strokes for different folks I suppose.

Hmm, maybe so; I have the quasi-advantage of living in a smaller city where, while I'm not sure, buying habits actually seem to be based more on kids than collectors and less so on scalpers. But if kids grab these up I'm betting they'll go for the Biker Scouts, actually.

On the other hand, I would shoot my foot to miss Han altogether, too.

I've also noticed a distinct tendancy for prequel figures to disappear faster than OT figures in my area.... the Coruscant wave only lasted a few days, but the Hoth and Carkoon wave stuff hung around quite a while- what the store got in, anyway. I never saw a Chewie or Fett in my store- a shame since I'm really wanting a Fett.

So adversely really, it's a disadvantage living in a smaller city- they tend to only get one, maybe two cases a month in of anything. And I could swear they skipped part of the Carkoon line, and all the TSC figures have been a week or two late...

If these don't make it here for like a month maybe I can just buy all three at once :) Or borrow some money from my parents? Hmm...

Really guys, if you want this figure at all, grab it when you see it.  Don't wait around for it.

I have three so far, all loose from ebay thanks to a heads up Metal Jedi (I'm going to keep thanking him until I start seeing this figure in stores).   :-*   :-*   :-*

Isnt it a little early to be posing this question?

On topic, in the end I'd like to have six or more paited by Chewie into Barc troopers.

All right, maybe I'll get a VTSC scout first :P But Han is second and I'm going to see if I can't get him at the same time.

After I've got Han and Luke, then I'll see if I can afford a second scout.

If Greedo or the Tusken Raider pegwarm I might buy one of those... but they're not that high on my priority list. Rather spend money online and get a VOTC Chewie and Lando first.

Truer words have never been spoken. This figure might be my favorite SW figure of all time. Simply flawless.

I have just 1...and I've had it for so long that I'm already bored with it...PSYCHE.. I have to admit I get him out to play with him at least 3 times a week and everyday on the weekend.

I got 5 more coming from China (and I have the Pink USPS slip on the kitchen counter where they tried to deliver them today)

I'm going to stop at 12.  So far I have ordered 6 cases from various sources, so I am going to end up with extras.
