Bumping this thread up...have you seen those ugly clone pilots? I think I'll be skipping those. :-\

Do you mean the ones that look a little like AT-AT drivers?  I know the design is a little bland, but it's very OT-esque to me.  Plus the figure looks to be extremely articulated and well sculpted.  Count me in for several... :)

Me, too.  I like 'em a lot.  I'm still figuring out just what I'm skipping.  So hard.

I'm thinking I'll have to eschew carded figures in favor of getting all the figures, plus multiples of the Clones.

I'll gamble I'll only have enough money for about half the figures available on April 2nd, so I'm guessing I'll be buying lots of Clones that day.

I won't be short money for the release date, but I'll not be picking everything up.  I just fully anticipate clearance deals down the road, so why bother?  Some poor sap will be clearing his loose figures by September and I'll be ready and willing to pay $1 for pregnant Padme.

I'll be passing on most of the coll.1 figs. I already passed on the preview wave.

Zoiks!  You don't want any of the preview wave?

I haven't bought Tion Meddon yet myself, since he kind of bores me every time I look at him.  But I guess I should get him here eventually.  And it seems like 40 some odd figures will be available 4/2 (or earlier, who knows?) which makes deciding what to get that much harder.

Oh man, do yourself a favor and get that Tion Medon. It's an awsome figure. The sculpt is spot on, and the accesories are neat. I'm so glad I snagged him. :)

I agree - get the Tion Medon figure.  I've bought and opened two of them so far.  Really a nice figure and diorama filler.

Well, now that we have seen the first wave of merchandise, what have you ended up passing on so far?  Did you stick to your "guns" and leave some things hanging and sitting that you intended to earlier?  Of what I have actually seen at retail, here is what I have passed on:

Basic Figures - I've seen #1-32
#4 Super Battle Droid
#7 R2-D2 (been tempted, just to have an R2, but waiting for the later one hopefully)
#17 Battle Droid
#26 Yoda
#27 Obi-Wan Kenobi

Deluxe Figures - Seen First Wave
Anakin Skywalker to Vader (been tempted, but holding out for Med Table version)
Emperor Palpatine Changing Faces (again, tempted, but holding off for now)
Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Super Battle Droid
General Grievous (opted for the $5 basic version instead, didn't seem worth $10)

Vehicles/Beasts/etc.
Grievous Wheelbike (hoping to pick this up eventually, but figured it wouldn't be tough to find)
Droid Tri Fighter (vehicle space is at a premium for me, and this one interests me less than others...possible if I find some more room or something)
Republic Gunship (have Saga one, don't need another...barely have room for the one I do have, that wingspan is a space muncher)
AT-RT (passed the one time I saw it, because I had spent so much, and really regret it now.  Will definitely grab it if/when I see it again)

Battle Arenas
Saw these at TRU opening day, and passed.  Don't regret it at all.

Unleashed - Seen First Wave.
Bought 'em all. :P

Galactic Heroes - Seen repacks, First Wave (Obi/Grievous, etc.) and Second Wave (Chewie/Clone)
Bought them all, aside from repacks.  6 sets total of ROTS ones, 1 of each.

Misc.
Have passed on all Force Battlers, Attacktix, Buddies, Call Upon Yoda (anyone gotten this, is it good?), Vader Voice Changer, and Role Play Items.  I might eventually get a role play item or two, I always wanted to have a lightsaber and/or blaster to mess with, and haven't ever picked one up over all these years.  Was tempted by the Force Battler Vader, but probably better off leaving that as well.

Hmmm... I pass on just about everything that isn't part of the regular 3-3/4" line.

The only stuff out of the basic line that I have passed on -


Basic Figures

- Super Battle Droid


Deluxe Figures

- Obi Wan/Super Battle Droid 2-pk


Vehicles

- Gunship


Miscellaneous

- Anakin vs. Dooku Battle Arena

It's funny, but I've bought ever single figure on the checklist (Excluding the force battlers and such)  except for Obi "Jedi Kick".  I took one look at his leg and cringed.

Yes, the Obi Wan **** kicker is well, a piece of ****.

Here's my list of figs that I will most likely skip unless they go on clearance for $2!

*Battle Droid
*Super Battle Droid
*Both yodas (might pick up the flying dinosaur with yoda)
*Destroyer Droid
*R2D2 (have enough already)
*Zett Jukasa
*Chopper Droid
*Mace (see Dressel's post)
*All deluxe figs minus clones
*Bail Organa (boring)

I think I will buy every #41 clone I can find!  Those things kick ass!  Wish I could've found more AOTC SA clones... :'(

As well, the clone commander looks pretty sweet too!

Wait, stop the presses.  I did pass on the "Spinning Yoda."
