I'm somewhere around 20 loose and 10 carded, I need to open 9 of those carded ones.

I have 25 after a tally tonight...  I scored 2 not TOO long ago at TRU which were greatly appreciated.  I'd dig 5 more for 30 (I've found myself say that same sentence with different #'s in place of 5 and 30 quite a few times now).  I'd love 40...  That's a transport's worth (AT, Sentinel, etc.) and would be my ideal total.  ;D

I found one more today.  I'm sitting on 43 now.  Shooting for 50.

Sheesh Rob...  Nice collection amassed so far.  I wish I could find more but I've not had luck as of late.  25's a lot more than I had initially rationed to myself...  15 more atualy.

I'm a weak person I guess.

40 would make me very happy though, especially after seeing pics of 40 + lined up...  Oh man that's just a sweet action figure!

Yeah.  I'm a little mad at myself for this new area of the hobby that I've gotten into since that figure hit...  I've now got around $350 spent on VOTC Stormies (some were bought on clearance and a few were gifts)...  I've also got roughly $500.00 worth of assorted clones sitting on my counter (just photographed them - pictures coming soon...)

Expensive, but fun.  I'm trying to ween myself down though.  The goal is 50 Stormtroopers, but the REAL goal is to stop once I eventually get there.

So far I haven't bought any more SA Clones since I got to 50, but I can already feel the temptation starting back up...

I have 0. Do I get some kind of prize? ;)

Really I'm just too cheap--I hesitate to pay $10 for a clamshell and a figure when I can get a reasonably adequate non-SA equivalent for $5 or so.

Probably someday I'll get one loose or on clearance. No particular rush though.

You can do it....I kicked the monkey off my back at 50....of course I will now need at least 20 of the Evolutions Sandtrooper.....I'm going to go the Ent Earth route and just buy cases and sell the EP II clones.

I only have 2 VOTC Stormtroopers, but wish I had more.  I only found one at retail, and picked up another via Amazon, and I just couldn't afford to keep ordering them online for $10-$11 plus shipping.  Hopefully we'll see them make another sort of release in the future, maybe in an evolutions set (with a new SA Snowtrooper and Scout Trooper, how cool would that be?), or in some other way.  Definitely an excellent figure.

Make sure you talk to me when you start unloading those EII Clones.

More Stormtroopers for the collection...  I got these last week actually on a tip from my local collecting bud, Dave.  He let me know 4 VOTC Stormies were just waiting on me to get the time to make the trek to the famed Monroeville Mall (home of where they shot Dawn of the Dead, and our tri-annual Toy Show).  I popped off at the Toys R Us and nabbed them, though I think I was just lucky though that nobody else beat me to them.

It's a busy area just outside the city...  I had to go to Lowe's anyway so it put me in the area, but it was a little later in the day.  I was concerned.

4 replacements to the squads.  Great...  Funny that TRU STILL is putting VOTC out.  Gotta run a sale to unload those Yoda's and Lando's now though.   :-\

You should see our TRU VOTC pegs - 12 Landos - that's it.

The ones I hit probably have 12 or more Lando's and as many Yoda's.  That's every store...  These seem to be the casemates these Stormies come with I think.

Not much VOTC up here these days but I can find the following:
Lando
Yoda
Obi
Luke
Han
Leia

All at their full, regular price of $17.07 CAD after taxes ::) >:(

It's really very sad, stormtroopers showed up at retail and lasted precisely four days.  No subsequent orders showed up.  Ironically it was when TRU put them "on-sale" for $10 CAD and I price matched every damn one I could find.  I spent about 7 hours going to every store carrying them and I still only ended up with 20.  I did manage to get three full sets of VOTC though and I have some extra 3PO's, Boba's and I think one spare Vader.  Shoulda bought more Vader.
