I'm up to a grand total of two.  Just considering them for customs of Han and Luke.  The Tantive IV Stormie is still the best version of the Stormtrooper for this army builder.

Bought 3 more wave 3 Stormies today while on vacation, so I'm up to 5 of that version and another 4 of the tantive version.

I love it when guys like Anton (and most of us army builders in this thread) are in the hobby.  Seriously, it's because of you guys that the hobby stays healthy for this many years.  I laugh when I read how Hasbro thinks half the market is kid purchases!  Really, if one person buys 31 of a figure that another only buys one of, how is it that kids supposedly make up half the business?  Bravo to us (I know we do it for ourselves, not for Hasbro, but still) for keeping SW toys coming to the shelves!

I just got my first three, thanks to fellow collectors. I could not find these anywhere.

Actually, Hasbro probably is right on that matter. The past few times I've been to Target, there is at least 2-3 younger kids checking out the basic figures, lightsabers, etc. After all, if the adult collectors don't buy the Luke, Mace, Obi-Wan, Anakin, and R2 repacks, then who does? Kids.

On the topic of the Stormtrooper, I've still got one. Likely all I'll buy (or find, for that matter). Though I still don't understand all the negative thoughts about this figure. It's essentially an improved repack of the VOTC Stormie, what's there to dislike? If you're not a fan of the Jango clone head, just leave the helmet on.

I finally snagged one for junior and must say, this figure as a toy, sucks ass.

The torso is so loose he can barely stand and the helmet falls off when the figure is tipped upside down. 

And did they mold the head in black and then add the flesh toned paint?  Already the paint has rubbed away on the tip of his nose leaving a black spot.





For Reid.

I have seen, surprisingly, a good number of kids buying SW toys, but I guess what I meant was that if some of us are buying a couple dozen of one character, then surely kids can't be half the market when likely they only buy one of each character.  For myself, I get at least one each of the main OT characters and multiples of the army-builders.  Already that should be more than any kid.  I'd estimate my figure buying is equivalent to at least 3 kids, and there are far more high-spending collectors than me!

Finally got my first over the weekend, but I must say I'm not too happy with him as he has a big fat nothing for accessories other than the basics, blaster and helmet. The head sucks big time. I'm not a big fan of the seal man look and I don't mean the special forces ::). This line is rounding out with less and less it seems. Even the TSC figures has stands. Now Hasbro is selling stands separately, what a load of crap. I don't if I want to get any more of these as I'm not to thrilled with the one I got. I'll have to wait and see if I find any more. Would be nice if they would do what they are with the E2 and E3 Clones. Man there are so many everywhere. I coulb build an army of about 75+ of each with one stop a Wal-mart.
