How many VOTC Stormtroopers are in your army?
« on: November 3, 2004, 02:12 PM »
So far, I have 12 - got 6 online, found a few in stores and my wife also picked a few up.  It's a totally excellent figure, especially with a little black paint to touch up some needed areas on the mask.

How about you all?

 :P

I've got 3:  1 carded, 2 loose.

My carded one is hanging on the OTC Wall of Figures, the two loose ones are flanking my FF Rem Helmet Vader as he overlooks my Bounty Hunters.

I think I'll stick with 2 for now and hope for a cheaper re-release army builder pack or something.  $10 each is just too much IMHO for massive army-building.  Buying anything more than the 3 that I have will eat too much into my budget, and then I'd have to start passing things up. :(

In fact, even buying 3 figures for $30 is starting to get excessive in my book...  :-\

1 and it's still carded.  Been debating whether to open these or not, I really like how they look on the cards (and this coming from someone who opens everything)

Not sure right now.  I haven't had the chance to open stuff recently.  I probably have close to 10.

6 for me, 1 carded and 5 loose, and I think that's all I'll buy unless I get lucky on a $5 clearance sale ::) :P

Um, none?    :'(

The plan was to get 2 of each - 1 carded, 1 opened.  But I like Nataku's idea of 1 flanking either side of Vader.

I think I've got 7 or 8 now, and will probably be keeping two of them carded (one in plastic, one just on the card).  I basically just buy them whenever I see them, which hasn't been too often.  Hopefully that doesn't go on too much longer though!  I tend to erase in my mind the fact that these are costing me $11 a pop - twice as much as normal.

Well worth it for this excellent figure though, of course!  Still think Hasbro will eventually pull their collective heads out of their asses sometime down the road, and find another way to get more of these to retail, for a little cheaper.

Despite what they keep saying...   ::)

I have two now, one of which I got last night that isn't yet loose like my other one.

I'm getting two more whenever EE ships me my case. I'll keep one of those carded.

I'll buy some more if I ever see them. If.

Between the ones I got from Jeff & Matt (DBK) here at JD.com, the few I picked up at TRU and the 5 or so that one of my buddies has for me, I now have.... (counts fingers) 24.  ;D

4 open here and 8 still on the cards for opening. Not sure if I really need to army build at the steep price still. Time will tell if I open or return.  :)

3, one carded and two loose
Plans to get more but at $25 a pop here it's gonna be hard.
works out to about $19 US a fig so as you can see collecting outside of the US can suck!!!!
And no we don't get good clearance sales like you guys do either.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

If you decide to return them, why don't you return them to my p.o.box?  ;D

9.  Hopefully they'll hit stores near me soon so I can add to that as well :P
