*gasp*

You reduced and didn't call me, Paul!? :)

Me either.    ;)   

If you downsize again to 24 (I know you're tempted given the whole squads of 12 thing) let me know.  I'm looking for 6 more to round out at 50.   8)

I almost had one on eBay, I got screwed over.
I payed 40$ for one, and then he started sending me e-mails telling me that was the easiest 40$ he had ever made, well I lost 2 allowances there...hmph.

Did you actually pay him after he started taunting you like that?  That was pretty low on his part.

I only have two, would love to have more like everyone else.

But don't be misled, it's not as perfect as it could be!

Agreed. However, I think if they tweeked it, the VOTC version woud still hold up well. I've found a few really good poses, but I have most of mine simply standing at attention, which is how I would have most of my figures anyway.

I would rescuplt the hands and add VOTC Luke hip articulation. I think that would make the figure perfect. What are your thoughts?

I went forever without finding this guy, but everyone else in that wave.  Then over the course of just about 2 short weeks at Target, I scored 6 on 2 separate occasions and then I found 2 a couple times.  Then when it seemed that no more were being put out on the shelves, I found about 3 more at Toys 'R' Us.

So I think I have about 19.

I never saw them at KMart, Walmart, or KB Toys.
If you vote for me all of your wildest dreams will come true.  Thank you.

I'm all about scale and that helmet just seems off in size and detail.

Yeah, all the pics I've seen of the VOTC Stormie make it look like it has a bit of a cone head thing going on and the eyes look buggy. However, I have not seen one personally, so I really don't know what I'm talking about.  :P

Now they are but the line's been done for a while.  How hard or easy to find they were depended on how often you went out, what stores you hit, when you hit them, and also just how lucky (or unlucky) your region turned out to be.

For instance I know Rob's seen shitloads of them at his local shopping treks, but for me I didn't see so many.  I really lucked out when I found a passel of them for $7 each at an area Wal-Mart once, but it was only like 7 or so, not a lot... 

I saw them a few times at Toys R Us but in no huge quantity.  At most I think I saw 4 at one TRU once.

Target I don't recall seeing any...  I got most of mine at TRU, then a handful at WM, and the rest I've traded for online.  I got one at KB too in an act of desperation for more.

For my area they were NOT common.  Nor was the Evolutions line.  These items were not shipped heavily up here at all.  Even the local scalpers don't have these things in abundance it seems.
