Who else thinks that Hasblo will ammend there statement and add more holos to the line up instead of just releasing the known 12?

Anyone? Anyone?

Beyond a shadow of a doubt.  There've already been pretty good sales of these figures as the completeists (aka nutjobs) strive to get each figure with each holo.  No way Hasblo will pass up on that opportunity. 

I'm happy to have them, for what little they're worth, much like the POTF coins.  But I won't go out of my way to get them and I'm certainly not nutty enough to try for a carded collection.  I do think they are kind of crappy, as far as pack ins go, but no worse than previous efforts.  I've never chased the pack ins so why start now?

I keep finding figures with the holograms ripped out of them in stores.

Which would constitute a bit of backfiring if you ask me.

Pack-ins resulting in increased incidents of theft...

Brilliant.

I'm not going to go crazy to find them, but I guess they're an alright pack in.  Like Brent mentioned, nothing spectacular, but a little something extra I guess.  I'd like to get all the OT-based ones (or maybe all of them), but I'm not going to buy extras of figures to do it.  I completed the Carkoon wave today and these are the holos I've gotten so far:

Palpatine/Darth Sidious
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Stormtrooper
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Luke Skywalker

So far, I think the only other ones I have seen are Boba Fett and Queen Amidala.

Here's my current Holo tally after picking up my carded, loose, and extras of the first wave:

Emperor Palpatine x2
Darth Maul x2
Queen Amidala
Darth Vader x2
Yoda x2
Count Dooku x1
Boba Fett x2
Han Solo
Rebel Trooper x2
Obi-Wan Kenobi x2
Luke Skywalker x2
Stormtrooper x2

Just missing the Amidala and Han at this point.  I'm definitely going to put together a complete loose set, and since I usually buy a couple extras of each OT figure, that shouldn't be a problem mixing and matching to make that work.  Might have to make a few extra returns here and there, but no biggie.

The more interesting question is what do I plan to do with the carded ones...?  I guess I'm going to make sure that my carded Carkoon wave all have different holos, so that I can at least have half of them carded.  Then I can knock off the second six on cards when the next wave hits.  No way in hell am I going to collect all the possible figure/holo combinations though.  That's insane.

So which Holos is everyone else still trying to track down at this point?  BTW, Jim set up a Holo minis trading thread, if anyone's interested in swapping these things (presumably loose)...

I was worried about that happening. But I don't really care about the holo figures anyway, so I guess it doesn't really matter for me. :-\

I totally forgot to even look at the holos when I picked up some of the Hoth wave since I was in a hurry, but I lucked out that I didn't get any duplicates of ones I already have.  I'm just missing Boba Fett and Yoda at this point, and the only double I think I have is Vader.

You know, there is medication available for this sort of thing...

Here is mine... :-[

Emperor Palpatine x0
Darth Maul x0
Queen Amidala x2
Darth Vader x0
Yoda x0
Count Dooku x4
Boba Fett x1
Han Solo x1
Rebel Trooper x1
Obi-Wan Kenobi x0
Luke Skywalker x0
Stormtrooper x0

Lots and lots of Dooku.  I've still got five of the hoth wave figures to open when I find them so maybe I can balance things out a bit... :-\

Mine are still carded, but I have:
Emperor Palpatine x 1
Darth Vader x 2
Darth Maul x 0
Stormtrooper x 2
Boba Fett x 1
Count Dooku x 0
Queen Amidala x 0
Han Solo x 1
Luke Skywalker x 1
Rebel fleet trooper x 1
Obi Wan Kenobi x 1
Yoda x 1

I still have 4 figures from the hoth wave to find, so hopefully I can find the 3 I need.

Ugh, I officially hate these. Like everyone else, I've started looking to see which holos come with which figure. This is very time consuming, since I also look for good paint jobs, no bent accessories, etc.

After today, I have 1 Stormtrooper, 1 Rebel Fleet Trooper (he sucks ;)), 1 Yoda, and 1 Boba Fett. I've seen all but Amidala so far.

That's the only one I've really wanted. I guess she reminds me of her daughter's holo all those years later, in Luke's garage. Here's what I've ended up with:

Amidala
Yoda
Han
Obi-Wan x2
Maul
Dooku
Sidious

If anyone has an extra Vader, I'll trade an Obi-Wan for the hell of it.

I've seen this idea floating around the 'net, and I might just have to try it... a Mini-Holo Chess set?

Pawns = RFTs and Stormtroopers
Rook = Han and Fett
Knight = Luke and Maul
Bishop = Amidala and Dooku
Queen = Ben and Vader
King = Yoda and Palpatine

Add a bit of spray paint to color them and volia! Might give me something to do with all the extras I'm expecting by the end of the year... :P

I've got extras of Vader, Yoda, and Dooku if anyone needs one of these.
If you vote for me all of your wildest dreams will come true. Thank you.
