Found some more today.  Bought another 3 and that brings me up to 6.  I actually passed on about 4 or so more.  It just didn't seem cool to buy them all in one shot.

This really is a fantastic figure.

Found 5 so far, bought 'em all, gave 1 to a little kid I know. 

I'm not going to go too ape**** on this one, but I probably will get more than the 6 I thought I was going to, maybe as many as 12.  It also has outstanding customizing potential with the clone thing going on.

I'm at 3, hoping to get to 8-10. If they get to Target it will help.

I have 3, I'm hoping to get 6. But I was thinking...though this is a cool figure, its not really that exciting of a character.

Seriously, these guys just sit in a command center and pull a switch. I don't even understand why he has a gun. The most action we've seen from these guys are when they're manning a turbolaser. But even that is pretty safe for them. They're inside a Death Star or Star Destroyer. The chances are almost zero that they'll ever see any action up close. For me to have any real satisfaction with this figure (other than the fact that he looks really cool just standing at attention), Hasbro has to release some sort of turbolaser for him use. Even if its some sort of bastardized EU-ish gun emplacement that he can man...anything.

At this point he's like the cloud car pilot without a cloud car. Imagine that? Oh right, we can...

They had the holsters on in the movie for some reason...  It's a matter of accuracy ultimately I suppose.

Now the nerd in me really wants to spout off about how Destroyers can be boarded, gun turrets are also surface weapons (the Endor Shield Generator MOdel actually had several ground turrets around it that were obscured by the forest scene overlay) and things...  But I'm gonna supress my inner-nerd for you. ;) 

It's funny how the DSG turns out to be one of the greatest army builders the company ever put on the pegs...  yet is probably a dull character choice really.   I'm ecstatic though so long as I can find him in bulk.

Oh and they DO man the guns more directly than the guys working the big turbo lasers.  In ANH there were the guys manning the small turrets that got blasted by Luke and all.  That's seeing some up close action I guess...  :)

Oh Come on...I was going to do the same thing...mention how everybody is ultimately an infantryman first. I would assume in 2016 when Hasbro has run out of ideas they will make an Imperial Cook from some Fan-Fic (the EU of a new generation) and he will come with an E-11...

If nothing else, I like getting extra weapons (if properly scaled) I just wish they throw in the gun that Vander/Antilles/Dodonna came with.. the DH-17 was a fairly big player with the Empire too.

Oh I agree there's a chance that they might see some action (other than being on the losing side of a proton torpedo), but all in all, these guys are kind of useless (as action figures) without a turret of some sort to use. Though I will have to repeat, they look really cool just standing around, which is what I have them doing right now. Mainly I just want some sort of turbolaser or gun emplacement made for these guys to sit at.

(Jesse, you've known me a few years now, and that should be long enough to know that you don't have to suppress your inner nerd!)

Only have 2 so far, looking to get maybe 6 more, plus some for customizing. Its a great base figure, along with the new Garindan.
