I've got 4 now. I think I'm done unless they go on sale somewhere.

I passed 4 today at various Targets.  Sitting at 10 and taking a short break for a while.  I've bought so many freakin' toys and Mini-Busts this month it's pathetic.

I found and bought my first one yesterday.  I really like it, but (despite it being my favorite Imperial soldier type) I don't think it's quite to the supreme quality level of the Scout Trooper and Stormtrooper.  I think maybe the dirty wash on the helmet as well as the bluish color of the fabric below the armor is what makes it a little less than perfect for me.

Just one so far, but I'll be getting several more.

I'm in the smae boat Rob. I'm still at 8 loose one carded, I saw 2 more at Target the other day and I elected to leave them because of the higher prices, and I figured I can probably take a little break and start in on these guys again in few weeks, once I have a bit more money.

I opened one of these guys up this morning.  He's guarding my monitor along side a Legends SA AOTC Clone.  I'm not sure how I feel about this removable helmet.  It seems like it sits a bit too high on his head for my taste and its quite wobbly.  I guess I'm glad its not so tight that you see the face underneath it pushing through.

0. For now. 4 are on the way from Newforce.
My ultimate goal: 36
Got my first 4 today. Best I'll do on the Mqsnowie is 9.

Um, it all makes sense JediJMan.

Look carefully at the 2nd line.  It says goal for McSnowie is 9.  As in the McQuarrie version coming later this year.

Ahhhhhhhhh!  Now I get it.  So DA is going for 36 on these.  I have a few spares from Target if you want them bud.

Got my second one yesterday.  This one had a much more subtle wash on the helmet, and after fiddling with the pose, I feel much better about the figure!

I found these guys in nearly every store I went into today.  I'm up to 18 now - and I've easily left at least that many behind in various stores.

That is nuts.   :)  I have two - probably will get a third, but no rush.  I've passed down maybe four or five now.  They sit at Target along with the rest.  I guess it's the $12 price tag.

I totally forgot I ordered a set of VTSC from NewForce. I had already found all of them when it came yesterday. Luckily I had saved a Target receipt and I was able to return them all, except for the Snowtrooper of course.

I'm at 9 loose and one carded now, 1/4 of the way to my goal of 36. :)

Rob your army is looking pretty impressive. BTW, I think I may have said this before somewhere but I love your counter tops. :)
