Looks like someone is becoming more aware of their Collecting OCD.

Bring them back dude.  Bad quality, overpriced to the max.  You'll feel better when customer service puts that cash back in your hand.

Too late, I opened the damn things.  Love the two protocol droids and the Dark Trooper, but geeze.  I'm not buying many of CW figures, and have been cutting back on army building this year so I guess I can live with this purchase. 

Still, I'm a bit ashamed.   :-X

I bought 2 sets so I should be even more ashamed but I did trade/sell my extras so actually did not get too hosed. I also used some for custom commissions. These were so limited I had to react and did not want to regret not buying them later. The Darktrooper is cool but very 90's looking, they almost should have taken some creative liberties to make him look a little more modern.

Lucked out and was able to get 2 more, Maul & Anakin, besides the Corran & Fett I'd gotten earlier in the week.  Just missing the General to complete the trooper.  The only I've been able to justify this is cuz I haven't found anything in the store for thelast 2 waves, otherwise I'd had to have passed.  Besides the DT is too cool I loved that game and can't wait till Kyle comes out to pair him up with this.

Couldn't resist... I caved today and bought the Corran Horn set. I stood there for an hour debating if I should buy it or not, and now I'm debating if I should take it back and keep the cash or not. ::)

I checked for these again today, but no go here locally.  The WM closest to us has narrowed their toy section down considerably, so I'm wondering how many of these exclusives we'll see here this year.  Hopefully they'll make them available online, or I'll have to look for help elsewhere or something.  With the news of the $17 price, I'm debating if I want all five or not.  I really want the Dark Trooper though, so I may just bite on them anyways.  I know for sure I want the Corran Horn and Fett sets, and I'd likely want the Grievous one too since it has an astrodroid.  The Maul set looks cool enough (droid wise), and I'd just as soon pass on the Anakin set.  Damn build-a-droid gets me again ;).

I hope you literally didn't stand there one hour looking at them.  ;) I don't think they are worth that much time to glance at.

Well it was more like 20 minutes, and I went to a few different sections of the store, but it felt like an hour. :P

I wish I'd had the opportunity to buy these by now.  >:(

Just remember, it could always be worse, you could actually want a set (like me) and live in an area with so many other collectors and eBay scalpers that the chances of me actually scoring a set, let alone a second one so I can open them, are slim to none.

Yes, there is that much competition.

I found these today and picked them up.  I would've only gotten the Corran Horn set, but I wanted the Dark Trooper.

I do like the droid that comes with Maul and the one that comes with Fett (from the Droids cartoon) are not bad.  I also used the Grievous cape on my Wave 6 Grievous and it looks ok on it.

Tha Dark Trooper is baddass though, and HUGE compared to my POTF2 versions!
