I thought about buying these at K-mart the other day, but Luke's face looks terrible, and the Fett and Stormtrooper just aren't quite nice enough to justify a whopping $30 for each of them.  Also, why couldn't Boba have just a little bit of a neck?

I think if I see these ever drop down into the regular 12" price range, I may just bite.  Though I'll admit that the new packaging does look pretty cool!

Haven't heard any word on anything beyond the 3 VOTC 12" figures to date.  I assume I haven't missed any important news on the future of this line, correct?  A real nice Vader would've been a nice addition.  Surprised he didn't make the original cut.

I found Luke at TRU the other day. Just Luke. He looks like a moron with that big cocky grin on his face. I didn't buy it. >:(

Nope.  The only one I've purchased is Boba Fett (grey jumpsuit), and that will be the extent of my foray into the VOTC 12" line.  My 12" collection is narrowly focused, and Boba was the only one that fit in with that focus.

Got gray Fett. Looks awesome, just wish his leg joints were tighter.

Might get Chewie....

I continue to pass.  Have seen Stormie and Luke numerous times.  JuvyD has my grey Boba, all I want.

I have kept up with collecting the 12" line, just have not been able to bring myself to spend $30 on these OTC figures(except Chewie). The packages are great,  but the figures could be so much better. I am holding out in hopes of gettting them on clearance at some point.   :P
