I'd keep the rubber band on Exploding Grievous. I cut the one on mine off (stupid) and now his torso doesn't stay with the legs.

I got another rubber band to put around him, and it's hidden well by the cape, so I like like it better this way.

Well, do you open your stuff Ook?  Do you like well sculpted/articulated figures?  It's 100% better than the SAGA version... That's reason enough for me!   :)
Okay, I thought you meant I'd personally like it for some reason.

Passed on Padme in Collection 1. This has got to be one of the most ugliest sculpts yet of Padme. It doesn't even look like Natalie Portman!  :'(

So, now that the movie has been released, and many areas have seen Basic Figures up to #47, 3 Waves of Deluxe, and all the Vehicles and Playsets...what have you passed on so far (if anything)?  Here's what I have passed on, at least so far:

Basic Figures
#04 Super Battle Droid
#07 R2-D2
#17 Battle Droid
#26 Yoda
#27 Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi Kick)
#36 General Grievous (Exploding Body)
#44 Destroyer Droid

Deluxe Figures
Anakin Skywalker to Vader (Series 1)
Emperor Palpatine (Series 1)
General Grievous (Series 1)
Obi-Wan/Super Battle Droid (Series 1)
Vulture Droid (Series 2)
Stass Allie on BARC (Series 3)
Spider Droid (Series 3)
Crab Droid (Series 3) - Tempting, haven't seen it.
Clone 3 Pack (Series 3) - Haven't seen Series 3 really, aside from Spider Droid, but will likely pass on them.

Vehicles - All Sizes
Anakin's Jedi Starfighter - Green (TRU) - Have the first one, will likely pass on it.
Droid Tri-Fighter
Grievous' Wheelbike - Tempted at times, have passed thus far.
Republic Gunship - Have 1, Don't Need/Have Room For Another.

Misc.
Passed on all Battle Arenas, but did pick up the Mustafar Playset.

Haven't passed on a whole heck of a lot I guess overall, but have just been buying what I like for the most part.  The rest of the year (that we know of so far), I plan on picking up at least 1 each of the remaining figures (45-56), the Wookiee Helicopter, 500th Vader, Evolution Packs, Unleashed Vader and Yoda/Sidious (and Stormtrooper if I ever see it), and the Glass Sets.

I have passed on the following and do not intend to get these: 

Battle Droid
Super Battle Droid
Magna Droid
Mace Windu
R2-D2 (1st version)
Most all of the Deluxe figs except Vader Operating Table
Non of the battle arenas
All of the vehicles and playsets - just don't have the money or space
non of the sublines like Attactix or Force Battlers
No Unleashed either - waiting for Palpy/Yoda

I've actually passed on quite a bit, mostly due to limited fundage.  It's probably better to say what I have bought:

Figures:
Dooku
Padme
Royal Guards Red and Blue
AT TE Tank Gunner
Plo Koon
Luminara
Kit Fisto
Agen Kolar
Vader's Medical Droid
Obi Wan #1
Grievous #9
Anakin #28
Obi Wan Jedi Kick
Palpatine #35
Mace
Bodyguard
Wookie Warrior #43 Both flavors
#41 Trooper
Clone Pilot
Clone Commande
Holo Yoda
Deluxe Vader w/ Table

I'm kind of hoping for the end of summer clearances to clean up, but the way this stuff has been selling...

Passed on a fair bit thus far, but since Wally has dropped it's price a bit of late, I'm more tempted as the price is down to $7.24 or about $5.79 US.  I also filled a few voids when the holo yoda came, picked up six figures to get two holo yogis.

Regardless, here's what I don't have yet:

#3 Yoda - 0
#4 Super Battle Droid - 0
#7 R2D2 - 0
#13 Count Dooku - 0
#15 Bail Organna - 0
#16 Plo Koon - 0
#17 Battle Droid - 0
#19 Padme - 0
#21 Shaak Ti - 0
#26 Yoda - 0
#27 Obi Wan - 0
#28 Anakin - 0
#31 Luminara - 0
and what number is Grievous' bodyguard?  I passed on that too.

I'll probably round out the rest of these at some point.  I picked up a number of collection 1 figures pre-April 2nd release and in my giddiness opened what likely would have otherwise been suitable for clearance :-\

Deluxe figures:
Anakin Skywalker to Vader (Series 1) -  I have it though I keep wanting to take it back
Spider Droid (Series 3) - saw it, left it
Crab Droid (Series 3)  - saw it, left it
Clone 3 Pack (Series 3) - I passed on the all white pack I saw

Vehicles - All Sizes
Anakin's Jedi Starfighter - Yellow & Green (TRU)
Obi-Wan's Starfighter
Droid Tri-Fighter
Grievous' Wheelbike
Republic Gunship - Have 1, Don't Need/Have Room For Another.

No battle arenas, no Mustafar for me.  All those pieces suck, IMO.  

I still maintain that most of this stuff will end up clearanced.  Maybe not to a great deal up here and to my dismay, Walmart, they of the clear it now philosophy, has not brought in any vehicles, putting a major glitch in my plan.  

I'll get the rest of the figures this year, multiples of army builders (dumb).  
500th Vader
Evolutions
Clone 3 packs - color
Unleashed Sidious/Yoda, Vader
Target glasses

I'm not being facetious at all when I say this, but I don't know why that never occured to me. ??? I guess sometimes I over think things.

I've picked up all the basic figures I've seen so far (#1- #44).  I might not like them all, but I bought them all.   :-[

I think the only 3.75" stuff I've been able to skip so far is:

Deluxe Figures
Clone 3 Pack (Series 3) -- Haven't seen them yet, but I don't think I want them

Vehicles
Anakin's Jedi Starfighter (TRU Green Version) -- repaint ship + rehash figure = pass
Republic Gunship -- repaint ship = pass

I think the only other 3.75" scale thing I am planning on skipping so far is the Plo Koon Starship (repaint).  Everything else I'll probably end up with...  :-\

All you guys skipping the ROTS clone 3 packs can then send them to me when you find them.   :-* ;)

I haven't passed on much so far, I've been more completist with this line than ever before.

I've seen the Battle Arenas at clearance already and still didn't buy them, and don't plan on it.

I've never bought any 12" figures before, but I picked up the Grievous one because I had a gift certificate and wanted to use it for something I don't normally get.  I haven't opened it yet, but expect to be very happy with it.  That being said, there really aren't any others that interest me.

I'm hoping to grab just about everything else...

I only started buying the ships during the OTC line, so I've been eager to get the Gunship even though it's a repaint.  I've managed to get all of the ships so far.  However, I doubt I'll bother with the TRU exclusive Anakin's fighter because it's already hit $70 on the secondary market around here.

Like I said, I've grabbed nearly anything and everything I've seen.  Deluxe Figures, Force Battlers, Super Deformed (thanks Jeff!), Galactic Heroes and Unleashed.  I've even bought 2 of each basic figure.  I guess I've been caught up in the excitement (for two months  ::)) - perhaps it's time for some restraint, no?   ;)

I've skipped on the Battle arenas and the figures with the cups.

I have passed on tons of crap.  This ROTS line might be very nice but a lot of stuff has been made that I would not even donate it for Toys for Tots.  Of the 1st 44 figures, I have less than half of them, I may pick some of the rest at clearance, I stress the "may".  Of the remaining 12, I will get 7 maybe 8 depending how the jedi kid looks.

Besides that I passed on deluxe emperor, obi-wan and GG.  But I may get deluxe palpi, I like the flip a switch feature (cheesy yes but I like it).  I will pass on most MM playsets, may get turbo tank (this might be the only turbo tank).  I passed on Kenobi's ship and Anakin's TRU rehash dust collector.  I may get Kenobi's eventually.  I passed on the battle arenas and both Obi and GG cups.  Passed on Boga will pass on any repainted rehashed vehicles later this year.  when I can find an ROTS gunship it will be mine.

I collect what I like and what seems cool or fun, not b/c of money but because I cannot bring myself to buying some of the crap that Hasbro makes, unless it is a playset, my one weakness.
