These things belong in a vending machine for 50 cents or as a happy meal pack-in. I don't mind them, but $5 for 2? Sometimes Hasbro is just plain nuts. And I'm sure we'll hear how they are all the rage, and that this is where tooling dollars need to be focused  ::)

Anyone collecting these.  I have a few spares.  I think they are kind of cool, but don't like the price and really don't need yet another SW thing to collect.

My buddy Jim from out this way is into them Justin.  I got Bossk out of a set just for Bossk but sold him the rest of the set to unload it.  I know he's really digging them, and I can't blame him either, they're kinda neat looking.  I just can't add another thing to my collection shelving at this point is all, otherwise this might've gotten me.

Hell, like Dan said above, if these were $.50 in a vending machine...  ugh I'd probably cave and get them whenever I had spare change in my pocket.

Yeah, I like the bounty hunters, so I'd take a Bossk for sure and a Boba.

Well, if anyone wants them I have a Clonetrooper, Snowtrooper, and Stormtrooper up for grabs.  They are kind of growing on me - have to get rid of them before I'm infected.   ;)

I'll take them. Kira loves to play with them... and you've already got a care package waiting to send.

I don't see these selling at all.  The pegs at Target seem to be crammed and stagnant with these overpriced squinkies.

I wouldn't mind picking up a few for the kids, but the current price is nuts.  These need to be at least 50% lower before I would even consider picking up some.

I know. I just can't bite, either... and I'm more interested in the main characters and bounty hunters. They don't have those out yet... if they even have a series 2.

OK, the Target deal this week is making these too good to pass. The $20 set has 2 ships and 16 figures, and you can use the 50% off coupon, plus stack the playsaver $2 coupon. For $8, they are down to 50 cents each, plus the two ships as a bonus.  ;D

Now to make sure it doesn't become a habit....

I'm either totally nuts or just bored with the lack of new product, but I've started collecting this little guys this week. I've started with series 2 and in the past 3 days I've managed to knock out all but 3 of the commons, one of the blind pack exclusives and 4 figures from the two 12-pack sets. Not quite as satisfying as Kubricks but a hell of a lot easier and cheaper.

If anyone is looking for a checklist for series 1 & 2 added one over at the Yakface Toyguide.

Update: Just need the blind pack MagnaGuard  :P

I've said it before and I'll say it again...  Put these in a bubble gum machine for $.50 and I'd buy them.  I dont' know why, but every time I would walk by and had some change, I'd probably pick up one.
