Today, I went to a Walmart after celebrating Father's Day that was on the way home... and BINGO.  Scored 10 Sandtroopers (they had at least 5 more) - best selection of figures I've seen anywhere since the ROTS line was out.

I also bought some Goof-Off and am going to see how much I can use that to get these to be like VOTC Stormies like Jedishawn suggested.

Scored 1 today at a local KB.

KB is having a buy 2 get 1 free on all basic Star Wars figures so I scored 4 Hem Dazons,3 Garindans, a Firespeeder Pilot (brings me up to 4 now), and the Sandtrooper (only 1 they had) all for $44.98 :D

Now all I need is 4 (or more ;) ) R5-D4s, Momaw Nadon, and about 5 more Sandtroopers :)

BTW, if anyone wants a ton of red holos, visit my Swap Shop ;)

Still at zero...  Tat's still at a trickle at best, so I'll catch a Momaw or Garindan here and there, or Han/Vader, but everything else is generally long gone.  Sandtroopers especially, unfortunately.

I guess I am at 15 now... sounds kind of high, but with how many toy runs I've been on, I've overpaid due to gas.  I guess I do want a few more, and like having all those cool Sandtrooper staff things.

I tried the Goof-Off method last night... it does seem to work some, but it's hard to get the dirt out of the holes on the wrist armor... very hard.  Also it removes the black paint so I'll have to retouch that.

I was a total geek and divided my Sandtroopers up into squads to figure out what my limit will be. As it stands, if I get 4 more Saga Sandtroopers, that will put me at 4 squads/1 platoon. Each squad will consist of 6 black Sandies, 1 gray, 1 white and 1 orange. I also have enough Sandtroopers that I have not opened yet from Evolutions and POTJ to make an additional squad if I painted some of the shoulders black.

After that, I may get one or two to take the paint off to make them regular Stormies.

I finished my search of these over the weekend and am happy with 6.

I have just 1 loose one so far.

Including the Saga Sandtrooper, I have almost a dozen different Sandtroopers now, so I think I can stop with just one of this kind.

Sure you can...  :)

Remember, this is the best sandtrooper. Super articulated stormtrooper goodness. Throw the others away, and get more of these!   ;)

22!  Whoo Hoo!

Several came in the mail today as payment for some commissions I'm working on, and two are going to a friend as a surprise gift.

The rest, I am keeping.  Probably won't get any more, but maybe I will since this is the easiest way for me to build my VOTC Stormie ranks.  That goof-off stuff does work!

Got my first one today. They had two, but I didn't want to be greedy, so I left one for a fellow collector to pick up. ;D
The Force is strong in this one,... too bad his action figure sucks.

I have six sandtroopers as of today.  I just opened my first one as I'm starting to open my Tatooine wave.  The first one I opened has a problem with his right hand - it is filled in with the black pastic.  Is this common for all the troopers or did I just get a production error?  It kind of stinks because he can't hold both of his weapons.  My other five troopers are at home so I'll have to open them and check it out.

I'd really like to get at least 6, though 10 would be prefered. That's my goal number for pretty much all troopers. None yet though.  :'(
