Same here, Ook. I have 4 VOTCs, and a few from POTF2 ( :-X). I need to get a few more VOTC and some CT ones...

CHEWIE, you don't like the POTJ gun?

Not really... I realize the POTF2 version is overscaled, but the POTJ/SAGA ones don't seem to fit in the hands of the CT Stormtrooper... and since I have over 100 of the CT version, I don't want to have some Stormtroopers with mini blasters and others with biggie blasters.  So, I'm trying to stick with the POTF2 guns for the Stormtroopers.  It kind of looks silly though when having the VOTC Leia hold a POTF2 gun.   :)

If some how I could load up on about 100 VOTC Stormtroopers for cheap, I'd convert over to the other guns.  But as it stands, I'm sticking with the old version.

 :P

I'm maxed at 21 it seems.  These just aren't showing up anymore here sadly.  My 21st I got at a KB and it seemed as though it possibly had been there a while on top of that so I'm not even counting it as a recently put out figure.

Felt bad paying the mark-up but I bit the bullet on that one.

Be nice to nab more at the better $9-$10 price or (yeah right) WM clearance prices.  WM made short work of all its VOTC.  Even the first level of clearances to $7 pretty much wiped all VOTC out around here.

Yeah I thought I was the luckiest guy in the world when I bought 5 or 6 one day for $7.00 each at Target - then I got even luckier when I found 4 of them for $5.00 each at Walmart...

The clearance thing seems to be about over unless TRU decides to clearance some stuff out - in the meantime, they seem to be the only ones still getting ANY votc.  And now that I've passed 40, I can't help but sit here thinking 50 would be a really nice round number to shoot for...

Geez, and I was pleased to be getting them at $10 CAD (about $8 US).  I think I managed to tie Jesse after all, though I paid the full retail on more than a few.  But that price is just crazy. 

Sadly I have yet to even open one :-\  IMpending move (some time in the next 12 month anyway) makes me want to leave them carded.  For now.

Wow, 42, that's a heck of an army of a really nice figure.  Good job with that.  I have....2, but I'm happy to have those.  Not much VOTC left around here anymore, aside from a couple of Landos and Leias at TRU I believe.  Everything else has been clearanced and sold.

KBZ can vouch for me as he saw my army grow on another site, but I have 43.
Luckily, some were gifts, some were from sales, some were on clearance and some were from trades.

I'm still looking for these but they're all gone in my neck of the woods I guess.

I'd like a couple more...  even one more.  They truly are like crack.  I wound up with a modest group, but if I could amass 100 of these, I gladly would.

2.  One carded, one loose.  I've never really been an army-builder.  But I must say, this is definitely the most fun I've had posing my few loose figures.   :)

Got one today, woohoo! :)  A lone troop on the pegs at TRU here.  Wish I'd found his case-mates, but alas there was only a couple Fett's lingering (among ESB figs).  No other Stormies.

If anyone's finding extras, and they're wanting to sell, by all means contact me.  I'd like to get some more if I can find them.  I've got a modest group compared to some of you guys and would like to have at least a few more to fill out the ranks.
