Picked up Fett, Dengar and Luke yesterday at Target. Would have picked up more but I'm trying to spread out my purchases.

Also everywhere I've gone, aside from WM which has nothing, there are maybe 1-2 of each figure except for Vader and 4-LOM, where there are always 4-5 of those two figures. I'm already sick of looking at them.

I picked up a couple of extras of Luke and Leia today, and I've seen the same thing locally.  WM still has nothing, both Targets had a pretty good supply...as did TRU.  Fett is by far the rarest, and I've only seen him once.  Plenty of Vaders and 4-LOMs, and the rest seem easy enough to find so far - but it is pretty much the first weekend they are out there, so we'll see.  I'm interested to see how this line sells overall, and if we'll see an improvement over Legacy.  Man, that packaging (and the figures for that matter) sure is pretty.  The AT-ATs seem to be selling pretty well, as they were gone at both of our local Targets already.

It seems that after countless re-releases, TVC Boba is very rare. ???

I don't get this either.  It's the only one fromt he line that I'm missing after countless store visits (okay, maybe 5 or 6, but still...).  I'm buying him, but no more than the rest of the figs.  I would think someone like Dak who is brand new would be a better seller.  Weird.

In my neck of the woods, Dak and the AT-AT Commander sell out as much as Boba it seems.  Luke and Vader seem to be the slowest sellers here right now, with Vader taking the title quite handily.  Though I've seen every figure now several times.

Clone Wars stuff seems to be doing just as well as ever though.  I've not seen a lot of the new figures yet at all.

Picked up a second C-3PO at WalMart so I could display a second C-3PO in various states of disrepair.

Too bad the arms and left leg don't come off, if they did, this would be the ultimate build-a-droid version of C-3PO.

Sorry if this has already been covered. Does anyone know which Star Case works best with Vintage Collection cardbacks?

I've never really bought "Star Cases", but I'm attempting to continue at least with the OT figures in the Vintage Collection, and since the VOTC/VTSC figures are in cases, I've thought about picking some up to keep some uniformity to them.  I wonder if Hasbro will offer something, but I'm not holding my breath.

I would buy a clamshell for every Vintage Collection figure if they made them to match with the previously released VOTC/VTSC figures.

Boba probably has the casual or even non-collector appeal. I'm bet people our are our age who never buy toys for themselves are picking him up.

I've only seen Fett a couple of times. Still a popular character, I guess. I did buy one last night (and a Dengar) so that was nice. Picked up Leia last weekend, and I suppose with the Fett purchase I'm in for a carded set.  :-\
