Wanna sell your variant?  I could give you some cash and a regular Anakin to replace your departed variant :P 

It's selling well, I agree, but I think Clone Wars stuff is going to do well now anyway, regardless of the line.

I got my set off of ebay and got two clones off of Hot Topic.com. Out of all of it I ended up with all three clones. No Grevious of Anakin variant but I can really live without em if I don't end up with them.

Went to Hot Topic today and they had some series 6 on clearance, $2,98 a piece.  Picked up 2 Snaggletooths and scored a blue one.   ;D

Where does Hot Topic hide these things?  I was in three in Hawaii and couldn't find the bustups anywhere.  Everything scattered about.

Nice score on the blue snags.  I'm still hunting for a smoked Anakin

Brent, they're all over.  Sometimes I see them with the other toys or sometimes on the endcap of random shirt rack.

Nice score, Jay. Which location was this at? I called around and all of the Hot Topics around the areas I travel seem to be sold out of bust ups. I've been looking for the Blue Snaggletooth for a while.

Still no joy for me on the smoke Anakin.  Worse, there's one on ebay with a $99 BIN.  Man, I hope no one buys it at that. :-\

I got a clearanced Blue Snag bust-up from Arcadia HT back in November.

That's just insane.  I know that I've been searching for either version of Commander Gree bust up for some time, but I would NEVER pay anywhere near that much for that piece.

I was watching one up for auction that started at $.99 and it ended for around $99.

I've fallen so far behind on these things that I'm wondering if I'm even collecting them anymore...  Sucks, since I was pretty pumped for the line following their Comic Con showing.  But I think the damned chases really started pissing me off after that Gree hit, and now with all the new ones.  It was mildy exciting to chase chases in the Kubrick line for big bucks, but I have no interest in doing something similar with this line.  Of course, as a completist, this gnaws at me greatly since I'd rather not collect the line at all, than be missing a few here and there.  Ugh.

Anyone want to link me to a checklist on these things, so I can figure out exactly how far behind on the Bust-Ups I really am now?

Here's one Matt. However the Smokey Anakin and White Grievous aren't included on the list.

****.

Thanks Robb.  I was feeling real good about things after pulling the lucky trifecta at SDCC with all three exclusives there, but haven't done squat with the line since then (and before then too, I think).  So how many chases are there in the line now, starting with Gree?  Blue Snag, smokey Anakin, White Grievous, Blackhole Stormie...  Who else?  (not including arm variants)

My hobby room is such a catastrophic mess at this point that I have no idea where I even left off with this line.  ::)

Im kind of in the Same boat as you Matt. I only have a few from Series 6 and Im missing some from other Series as well.

I was lucky to get the entire CW series (minus the two chases) via Ebay and Hot Topic.

Not having Gree sucks. And with the AOTC Clone 4 pack coming out who knows what kind of chase they'll put in those.
