Imperial 4-pk - how many do you have?
« on: July 6, 2003, 12:40 PM »
Right now I have bought 2 of these, and I suppose I will get two more if I can't find any other new stuff soon (just gotta buy something every now and then!).  If these go on clearance, I will get a lot more of them.

What about you all?

 :P

I've got 3 right now, one of which will stay sealed in the package.  I wouldn't mind another couple to open, but probably not at TRU's $20 price tag.  So if they get marked down there (fat chance), or I come across a good deal on eBay or on the trading boards, I'll snag a few more.  If not, then 3's my number.

Probably only going to get 2 of the Hoth 4-packs though, but I'd like several more of the orange astromech from it (again, fat chance).

Just one.  I may get another when (and if) they go on clearance.

Three.  I may get one or two more.  The troops and droids in the set are kinda hard to pass on.  I actually like the Vader, too.

Just one. I was disappointed in the quality of two figures in the set. The 'Stormtrooper' and AT-ST Driver are a couple of the worst figures in my collection. The Stormtrooper's head is loose, and the AT-ST Driver has a noticeably askew helmet. I'm glad I got a cool Vader and Astromech out of it, but I don't need more than one of those figures.

As of now three... Why? Cause that's the magic number...

No really just feel that's cool for now. One is still sealed up and the other two are open.

It's a cool set but nothing astonishing at all. The trooper is cool though as someone mentioned the space between head and neck just irks me. AT ST Driver is OK... nothing to make me do cartwheels for... but it's a builder and still a better version then the "pump you up" version from earlier on.

R1 unit very cool and astromechs and droids are always welcome. The Vader is very slick and one of the best sculpts to date IMHO. Nice to see him redone so he can be used in any scene and not just a specific one as he was earlier.

Maybe I'll get some later "if" they clearance out... but I won't hold my breath on that since TRU is infamous for not clearancing product no matter how many layers of dust reside on the packaging.
Gotta love me or leave me alone....

I have one, but I might get another for custom fodder.

Anyone else need some of these things?  My local TRU has about 40 of them, so give me a holler if you want any, and I'll hook you up!

Just one right now, but if they clearance, I'll grab another couple.  Oh wait, I'm in Siberia (Canada, whatever).  I can't grab them.  Thank goodness Matt grabbed me one. ;)

I have 2 of this set, and I honestly have to hold myself back from getting more. That Vader is easily my favorite Vader we have.

I only bought one of these for myself, and it's staying closed up.  I thought it was "the bomb" when I first picked it up, but now I'm thinking it's really not worth $20.  Yeah, 4 figures times $5 = $20, but the only thing awesome in there is the Stormtrooper and the Astromech Droid.  The Darth Vader is pretty good, but I really don't need another one.  Overall, I'm still very happy with the purchase of it.

I think this may be the only one of these 4-pack sets that I buy multiples of.  The others aren't really geared towards army building.
