I got mine from the ebay seller.  They are exactly like the ones at Retail, only I didn't have to pay a scalper, deal with Target's Customer dis-Service policy or pay for gas to get them, so in my opinion they are better.

As an opener, I'd rather be able to buy all my figures this way.

All my scouts came in  individual sealed bags (not a kenner/bag) with their pistols.  So he is now a "Favorite Seller" and I check his auctions twice a day.

I really want to find this guy...I heard that they'll be on an endcap at Target on the 28th...maybe I'll head out there then. All I want are 2 Biker Scouts and an Endor Han and I'll be good to go.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

I just found my first at retail, so I'm at 1 loose right now with 2 more on their way from China. :)

Not bothering to get any. Ditto for the rest of the VTSC.

I just can't rationalize paying that much for a single figure, let alone five different figures (or multiples) at that pricepoint.

I'll snag my Sand People and Greedos for $1.19 each (or less) when they inevitably get marked down at Target like I did all of those VOTC Chewies/Yodas/Landos last time around ;)

You've got to get at least one scout, the $9.99 kinda sucks but you do get one of the best figures in the modern line.

I try to use the rationale that I keep the packaging and display it...  It's some of the only figures i am willing to do that with (Evolutions, etc. get the same treatment).  They are really "basic" figures though...  I'd give Hasbro the softgoods accessories argument too since they're a costly addition to toys.

Ultimately though, they're what we should get in general...  Ankle articulation cut here and there of course, and regular waist joints instead of ball/socket joints and complex construction, but overall they're the quality level we should be getting with $7 basic figures, no doubt.  Hopefully some day the Star Wars line can catch up to most of the other toy lines out there in that regard. ;)  Came close with the OTC line, and ROTS.

No Biker Scouts so far, but since I saw the VOTC Stormtrooper on many, many occasions, I'm not sweatin' it.

I'm officially at 8. 9 if you count the one in my carded collection.

Zip, zero, nada.

Hopefully my order from Rick will go through...cheaper than retail to boot.

I just got 5 to add to my 1.

I have to say, this may very well be Hasbro's best work...  VOTC Chewie is tough to beat but the Scout's army builder status, and an overall superior look even to the VOTC Stormie, make it really a tough one to beat at this point.  And I'm one who loved VOTC Boba and Stormie too and count them as some of the best in the line...  The Scout though is simply incredible.

This whole wave of Vintage are pretty great though.  I'd say Han is the most flawed of the lot, and he's still the best Han Solo I have IMO, and a great figure.

The Scout though...  He's tough to find any flaw with at this point.

The only thing I'd like to see out of the figure is a "clean" version without the boot dirt.

I'm still at my three open/1 carded count but I'm considering more. I think my limit on these will be 10.
