That's a great pic Zod - very nice.  I'd like to have that many VOTC Stormtroopers...

Hey Obi-dad!  Haven't seen you at www.coreplanets.com lately?

Nice pic Zod. The floor/table that you have them set up on is cool, 'cause that reflection makes it look like the Death Star floor.  ;D

Did you get the Stormtrooper?

Wal-Mart sucks. I'm glad that the only Wal-Mart that actually stocks SW around here has self-checkout.

I'm up to four open, one carded. Plenty at $10-13 a pop.

I intended to buy one. After all, it is a ten dollar figure--but it rocked my world, so I had to cave in and army-build him just like everyone else.

So now I have two.  :-*

Ok after a slow start on finding these guys I have 20.  Of that 12 are opened and the other 8 are just waiting for me to have the free time to set em loose.

I am addicted.

I've gotten them from Trades, Ordering 2 cases from EE ( just to get the Stromies and Fett) and the one lucky day I found them at the 3 different TRU's and 2 Wal_Marts I went to(and made sure to leave 2 at each store).

If I had the "Customizer's Gene" I'd make some Luke and Han in Stormie Customs, but that would just be wasteful at $10 a fig.

I plan to stop at 30.

Does this mean I have to buy four more to make sure I keep up with the Joneses?

You all are setting a bad example to Hasbro!!! By purchasing $10 army builders in abundance, you're giving them the idea to do this all the time. On behalf of us poor and/or cheap collectors, I beg of you all to stop collecting VOTC Stormtroopers!

Won't someone please think of the children?!?!   ;)

I still only have the one.  Though I've seen three now.  For you guys with ten or more, bless you.   :)

I have....two.  Not much of an army I guess.  The $10 pricepoint is all that is holding me back though.  I've actually seen them on several occasions now, and 2-3 of them have been hanging at our closest Target for a couple of weeks now.  I get so tempted each time I see one though.  Luckily the commtech version isn't too terrible, and mixing the two together works out ok.  The SA Clonetrooper spoiled me I think, although I couldn't find it around here...but it showed that we could basically get the same type of figure as the VOTC Stormie, but for half the price.  Plus, we'll get the next incarnation of the Clonetrooper next year with ROTS, hopefully utilizing the SA Clone body.  Like I said though, tempting to pick up another VOTC Stormtrooper every time I see one.

Also, on a side note, if you're still looking for the ROTJ VOTC wave, they have been popping on and off of Amazon all week.  Last I checked, Chewie and R2 were both in stock over there.
