I love these guys. Didn't realize I was up to 24 (plus one carded) until I saw this thread and took a tally (as well as a pic for my desktop.)
They've been pretty plentiful in my area; I've even been able to help out a few other locals with them. But I think this is a good number to stop at.  :o   :D

Still at only 2, but I'm going to try for 3 more when I find them again.  One of my local WM's is out of this one, and I won't pay $12 at Target.

Yeah I've been passing on the higher priced ones.  $12 is KM and Target's price, I haven't been to a KB though to see what they're charging.  I've probably passed on 20 at just those stores though due to price.

I did a head count tonight and I'm at 13.  Not as many as I'd like to have but there's so many other figures I'm picking up army building-wise right now that I've gotta sort of pace it I guess.  I doubt I go hog wild with this Snowtrooper though and will just hope for a re-release at some point like the Scout and Stormtrooper.  It easily would sell.  It's a fantastic figure.

I got 6 of mine from Hasbro, 2 from NFC, and the other 5 came from Wal-Mart finds.  Not a lot from retail but nothing I got I paid over retail for, even after shipping, so that's pretty nifty. :)

I've passed a few that I've seen at Target as well, since they were at the $12 price.  I'm at 5 total so far (1 carded, 4 loose) and wouldn't mind picking up a few more if I see them.  I've thought about ordering one or two from HTS, but I'm waiting for some other basic stuff to come in stock (Wave 3 would be nice), so we'll see.  One thing I'm kind of surprised by is that these have been in stock at HTS for like two weeks now, and never gone out of stock.  I wouldn't think that could have happened with either the VOTC Stormtrooper or Biker Scout.  Do you think it is just that people are tighter with money this year with all the gas price nonsense, or that people are tired of paying $10 a figure, or some other reason?  I mean, the Snowtrooper is obviously a great figure, and army builders are normally crazy popular - no matter the price.  Although I know there is a slight price difference, but it almost seems like the various clones (which are almost always out of stock) are more popular than OT troops at that point.  That seems blasphemous to me :P.

Long story short, I got 5 more since my last posting putting me at 28. 10 more and I'm done.

I have to say i think its cool you guys are army builders but i am very happy i am not. No way i could afford doing that in addition to everything else i spend. Every once and i while i think it would be cool to do, but then my wallet slaps me back into reality.

Do you think it is just that people are tighter with money this year with all the gas price nonsense, or that people are tired of paying $10 a figure, or some other reason? 

It could also be because the revision wave is supposedly packed with SIX of them.

Is that true?  I hope it is because if it is I plan on picking up 75 or so of them on clearance.    ;)

I sure as heck hope it's true!  According to Entertainment Earth, it is -

If that's the case, then I think you're right - the Snowtroopers might end up on clearance... sure would be nice to walk into Target one day, and find them on a clearance endcap for cheap...

This whole thing reminds me of how video games work. When they first hit selves they are really high price at about $60-$70 a pop. One reason they do that is to cover development & production cost, and there are many that have to have the game right now. If you wait 6 months or more you can have the game for $20-$30. Hasbro must be taking pointers, because there are mopping up on all that have to have a big army of these right now. Don't get me wrong about this as the vintage figures are really cool, but it is hard for me to swallow the $10 for them and some are even finding them for $12 :o, that is crazy. With all the hype for these and Hasbro is making a killing. Plus once the hype moves on, they offer them in the basic line and make a killing again. I wish they would offer this type of figures in the basic line from the start as I don't fell a figure we should have been getting all along for $7 is priced at $10-$12. I'm glad the clone trooper (AOTC & ROTS versions) didn't go this way, as they were offered at the basic price with the awsome articulation.

I only got 2 as I like to keep one on card, but I couldn't even think of getting the 20+ of these at the price they are. If they hit clearance I'll get a few more, but other than that I'll wait for the basic recard version.

Other thing is that I think the Snowtrooper look a bit bulky, maybe out of place a little too with the scale. Anyone else think that too?

Question is, has the revision case hit the market yet?

I happened upon 10 of these at a WM tonight...  I grabbed 5 and left 5, but man it was tempting to walk out with 10...  I think I'd have called it a day on them then.
