I currently have 6 opened here.

1's lying dead, in an incredible "gut-holding" pose with his lifeless legs propping his lower body on its side (to accomodate the grenade). 

1's fallen beside him, but is crawling towards his squad-mates, firing away with his E-11 while looking down his body at who attacked them.

1's got his left hand on his holster after undoing his E-11 and he's blasting away with it one-handed with his right hand.

1's kneeling behind the two prone troops, giving them support with his E-11 to help the struggling troop to relative safety.

1's holding the BFG the Sandtroopers had...  The T-21.  He's the team's support gunner, and he's doing his job standing behind my Alarm Clock for cover, and actually firing the rifle with his right hand and cradling it with is left...  Dunno what's up with the big stabilizer on the side of it.  Dumb.

And finally, 1's using the other Sandtrooper rifle, the one Chewie used on the DS.  He's giving some support as the team sharpshooter, also nicely tucked behind the Alarm Clock for cover.  :)

These things are Sooooo cool.  :)

And so we have proof that Hasbro actually does understand it's market.  That, and we've given them the green light to put out more expensive figures.   :-\

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

24?  Wow!!! Are they open?  You should post a pic of them kicking some Rebel a$$!

I have 1 carded and 1 loose. 

And at US prices it would have bought me about 6 of the buggers  ;D

I've opened 20 now.  I'm going to try to curb the want to get more at that.  If they go on clearance or become available in a cheaper four pack or something I'll have to pick up more - they're awesome.

I've got 15 or 16 now... I really need to stop buying them.  The 'ol checking account is looking slim and the wife is getting pissed!

I currently have just 9 and that might be it for me. I even passed on 2 this past weekend.

23's a lot KBZ, but I'm only envious...  I don't know that, at $10, I'd be able to justify that many.  I'd want them, but this month's had a special occassion, next is X-Mas, Jan. is a special Birthday, and of course Feb.'s Valentine's day...   >:(

Dammit I want 20+ VOTC Stormies too!

I still have my little 6 man squad here though...  This is the first figure since the modern line began that really had me actually down on the floor playing with it.  If Hasbro did EVERY army builder like this (and made sure it was available), I'd die a happy camper.  I'd not care if they made a single other figure, just as long as every army builder was done this way (resculpts and newbies).
