I saw 3 at Target the other day but at $25 a pop no thanks
I have 3 at the moment with no real plans to get any more.
I have 2 open ones that will be standing gaurd next to Mr Vader and the other will remain sealed.


$25 each?

Zod - maybe I should go back to TRU and hide some of them that I saw... but I don't think TRU will be lowering the price anytime soon.  :'(

Picked up one for me (grand total = a whooping 3) and one more for my Secret Santa last night.  I figured everyone would be happy with another VOTC stormie.

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

Yeah, I figured I'd go ahead and do it under three conditions.  1 being that it's not something I ever do.  2 being that I buy them even if they don't go on clearance.  3 being that I've left numerous stormies on the pegs over the last few months.

#4.  PMundheim lives on the other side of town and probably won't go into that particular section......hopefully..... ;)

Don't worry, this one's about as far away from you as any.

I got one in the mail today I received from a trade.  Love getting rid of old stuff I don't want for new stuff I can't find.  :)

Let the record show, that I passed on SEVEN more of these bad-boys today.  Then shared their location with this thread's other Dallas-addict.

Well I am a good collector and just bought 1 and kept it carded.  Of course that is because I have only been able to see 1 and that's it!  Damn you hoarders!!!  Damn you all!!!

They suck...  I know.

Where's my 4 at Matt???   :-*

I have to say I've only seen the two in stores though myself...  I know there's some army builders here who've bought them (or I'm pretty sure a few of the guys army build besides myself) so I know where they've mostly gone...  Still, I'm cool with that...  Maybe because I had a good Commtech army going or something, I dunno.

I know when the SA Clone hit, it hit BIGTIME at a Wal-Mart that had just opened up and I got all of ONE figure...  Tons of that case got opened and I got the last one (I'm amazed one was even on the pegs).  Nobody to blame though, even though I know where they likely went...  I figure I just didn't get there in time.

I keep thinking the likelihood of army builder sets on these figures is high...  It makes cost-sense for Hasbro to do so actually since the molds are done already, and it's not exactly rocket science to figure they'll do these eventually for on the cheap... 

I'm jonesin' for a Stormtrooper one that includes removable backpacks and pauldrons with a variety of rifles.  Something that is just extra cool for those of us wanting some officers, non-coms, and specialists mixed into it.  I popped a pauldron on my one VOTC the other day and it looks great.  Like a mini-marmit Sandtrooper. :)

Well, I had stashed a few at a TRU in my area for when I had some extra money.  Today I was eating at Panera Bread Company with my sister for lunch - she wanted to know what to get me for Christmas.  I told her that I wanted some VOTC Stormtroopers.   I knew she wouldn't be able to probably find any, so I told her to go to TRU with me after we got eating. 

Went to my secret "stash" and they were gone.  Oh well.  I told her I needed a gift card maybe instead.   :)
