A little OT, but I managed to acquire the last VOTC stormies I needed, so my Stormtrooper company is now complete:

64 VOTC
32 TAC
32 Saga (converted Sandtroopers)
16 Tantive IV (sergeants)
1 Lt. (TAC with rank insignia)

I stopped by TRU last night on my way home.  They had a ton of Wave 3 figures with the exception of Jawas and McChewies.  There were at least 18 Stormtroopers on the pegs.  I somehow managed to pass on them all so I'm still sitting with 4.

I picked up another one last week, and I have one included in a HTS order that should be coming sometime this week, so I think that will put me at 6 total.  I did head swaps with the Han and Luke comic packs to get some "normal" Stormtrooper versions of them.  Otherwise, I'm leaning towards picking up another Tantive pack to get some more nice Stormies, just because all of the basic versions I have had so far are fairly loose and all of the helmets fall off quite easily.  Granted, I could use some tacky or something to fix that, but we shouldn't really have to.  It is hard to pass up Stormies when they are on the pegs for basic prices, it seems like it has been awhile since that has happened.

Found 5 more and jumped to 23 today. 

Since we're keeping score...

50 VOTC
23 30th
27 Commtech
8 From the Battle Pack.

And I think there are 2 or 3 Lucas Troopers mixed in.

If you're looking to build your army, might I recommend army building with the Capture of Tantive IV Battle Pack Stormtroopers rather than the TAC versions. The TAC's tend to have some problems (one leg longer than the other, easy for the helmet to go missing, the center chest articulation is hard to hide) I am much happier with my battle pack stormtroopers.
Hasbro, ball jointed heads suck! They make figures look like they've been hung by a noose. Please use neck ball joints like the late 80's GI Joes.

Yeah, but the Tantive IV stormie doesn't have a holster. ;)

Yeah, but isn't there a problem with nearly every Star Wars figure? Besides that holster sucks. It's really not even a holster. It's just a plastic flap that you poke the gun through. Besides how often is a Stormtrooper's E-11 holstered? They're usually holding them in front of their chests or blasting something. I leave the blasters rubberbanded in my Stormies hands. It's easier than having to dig 'em out of the accesory bag and set 'em up. It's just there and ready to go.

I'm into the Tantive IV Stormie too.  Just my favorite all around Stormie, if not all around army builder that's been made.  I know it's not the most film accurate because of the belt, but I really don't mind.  Also I wish he had a ball jointed waist, but again I'm ok without it.  Something about this Stormie just seems "right" when I set them up in a diorama.  I've got about 40 of them.

I'm just a VOTC/TAC trooper fan myself. It better suits my needs in my diorama.

I just picked up 2 from HTS, with my McYoda order.  Now I just need to find compatible Luke and Han heads...

VTSC Endor Han ought to work. I don't know about Luke. So far, many of the ball jointed head Lukes look really bad, nothing like Mark Hamill. Maybe one from the VOTC Line or VTAC Bespin Luke.
