I've decided to go all out and be a completist this year, at least regarding the Basic and Vintage lines. Hasbro has really impressed me, I just want everything. That Force Unleashed line, I've yet to decide what I'll be getting, I guess I'm going to wait and see how much I like the game/comic/whatever crossover it is.

I'm skipping the Force Unleashed thing, with the exception maybe of the female Imperial officer.  I'll probably get one of everything in the basic and vintage lines, unless it's a trooper or Jawa, and then I might get 2 or so.

After 29 years of collecting, I'm not cahnging my habits now!  (Will there be 30th Anniv. next year for Kenner figs?)  I get one of every carded figure to open, and  few army builders if I find them.  No more, no less.

Shouldn't be a problem at all.  I've found 50 of every single other army builder I've wanted and in some cases 100.  17 is not even a challenge, Reid.

Unless of course you're trying for 17 Naboo Hangar troops, in which case that'd be impossible.

Come on Matt, get off your high horse. That figure is the best Star Wars figure on the market! Let's not kid ourselves, it trumps any thing else out there.

Same as I always have: buy what I like, skip what I don't, and open the stuff I get.

At the moment I'm sticking mainly to a Clone Wars focus. As you can see, there's very few things that I plan on getting for certain, and a bunch of others that I will buy if I have the money then or depending on what the finalized product looks like when I see it. I'm happy if I get even one of a figure, so army building is out because of lack of money/space/ability to care.

Also, I'm sure as **** not sweating the coin collecting.

Wave 1 - Revenge of the Sith

Galactic Marine (maybe)
Mace Windu
Airborne Trooper (maybe)
Super Battle Droid
Concept Stormtrooper

Wave 2 - ANH - Battle of Yavin

Rebel Honor Guard (maybe)

Wave 3 - ANH - Tatooine

Biggs Darklighter (Academy) (maybe)
Concept Chewbacca (maybe)

Wave 4 - RotJ - Jabba's Palace

Boba Fett (Animated Debut)
Umpass-Stay

Wave ? - Force Unleashed

female Imperial (Juno Eclipse?)
Shadow Guard- oh hell yes
Darth Vader (Battle Damage)
"Samurai Jedi" - oh hell yes
"Heavy Stormtrooper #1" (maybe)
'Heavy Stormtrooper #2" (maybe)

Vintage V30AC
Hoth Han Solo (maybe)
