I still have a big fat 0 so far. Hopefully soo though. I'd like to get 10 or so total.

2 after the Pennsylvania SW Collecting Society's Summer Social...  :) 

I'm not disappointed with the figure, but it's not without a few flaws.  One in particular is the head is too small to hold the helmet, which is among the bigger ironies ever for a removable helmet figure I've found.  Usually it's the other way around on that one.

I'm going to be pretty content picking up more of these though.  The torsoes on my 2 are ok too, not wobbly and whatnot.  I've yet to compare height though, but I think the way the helmet sits so low, it's not helping him look tall...  A better (larger) head would've maybe helped that.

I've got 5.  2 of them are Han and Luke (the comic pack heads fit great).  The others have Duke, Gung Ho and Kir Kanos heads.

Only one so far for me, with another one on the way today in a Wave 3 "set" from BBTS.  This is a figure that I'll probably pick up whenever I see it though, and I hope they are plentiful.  I realize they aren't perfect, but its nice to get a nice Stormtrooper at the basic figure price again.  I'd like to get a couple extras to do headswaps with the comic pack Han/Luke.  I tried that last week with the one Stormie I have, and it seems to work pretty nicely.  I only saw the VOTC Stormie at retail once, so I'm happy to be able to pick more up at the basic price if/when I see them.

I thought about doing the Han/Luke thing.  Then I thought about how it would be another $22 for the extra Han and Luke.  Then another $15 for the extra pair of stormtroopers.

Then I thought about how Hasbro is nearly guaranteed to release this on their own volition later on, and I decided I could wait.

Plus, that's two less Stormtroopers for the shelves.

Well, I'm still holding strong with an army of one...not for lack of trying though.

I plan to replace half of my VOTC Army with these guys.

Perhaps a few Sandtroopers (Evo, Tin and Saga) with them as well.

I'll probably stop at 12 though.

Paul, if you do this - let me know.  Maybe we could work out a deal or trade for your old ones?  I like the VOTC version just fine.
