I'm not allowed to pass on any figures.  :-\

I'm not only the president of the Insane Lemming Completist Club, I'm also a member...  :-\

Technically Matt - you did pass on Attacktix - I have a bag full of some extras I'll be happy to send you to get started!  ;D

So far I have passed on the following basic figures:

#7 R2-D2
#14 Chancellor Palpatine
#24 Mon Mothma
#26 Yoda Spinning Attack
#36 Exploding Grievous
#39 Polis Massan
#40 Mas Amedda
#46 Ask Aak (I'll probably pick him up eventually)
#47 Meena Tills (Same as #46)

I should have passed on Jedi Kick Obi-Wan though  :P

and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

I have not passed up that many basic figures.  There have been a few though: 

Padme
R2-D2
Battle Droid
Super Battle Droid
Magna Droid
A few more perhaps?

I would like to pick up some more but right now the wife has me on lockdown.  Unless I find a battle damaged Mustafar Anakin.  Then I will just endure an arguement for that one :) 

I have passed on all the Deluxe sets so far.  However, someday I do want a Vader with Operation Table (have not seen it) and a Stass Allie with Barc Speeder (or whatever that bike is).  The others are ok I just have to watch the money and right now $10 a fig is not an option. 

I have also skipped all of the vehicles or playsets.  Not that there are not a few I want like ARC 170, Gunship, Mustafar Playset, AT-RT and that Jedi fighter with Anakin.  But it's tight right now.

No Battle Arenas, Attactix, Force Battlers, or Preschool lines for me either.  Oh yeah, no Unleashed either.  Althought Yoda and Palpy will be calling my name once I see it.

All in all I really want most all of the small figures the most and anything else second.

I have to pass on most of it, I just can't afford to purchase everything.  I wish I could build an army of SA clones and Wookies, and get two of each figure so I could have an opener.  ;D

At least I've been able to pick up most of the figures on my priority list.

Patience is NOT a virtue of mine - if I see it, I will buy it.  That has pretty much always applied for the "basic" 3 3/4" line of figures (in this case, Collection 1 & 2).  I'm always a lot pickier with deluxe figures, beast, vehicles, playsets, etc.  Basic figures are the priority, and so I don't see myself passing on any of them.

Im with this guy ... I buy one of every rots I dont have but no more then 4 or 5 a week nd latley I been slowing down. Im happy with just one of each but I already have like near 10 clones i think i forget and a few Darth Vaders. Im not really dieing more of them tell the new ones come out in a few monthsand then i will go back to buying them .  ;D

I still have not bought most of the first wave deluxe to open because I'm unimpressed. Wave 2 on however is putting me in the poor house. :P

It's more like, what haven't I passed on?  Money is so tight right now I have to be very, very selective, but I did go for broke yesterday when I got Anakin, Bacarra, the blue Clone 3 pack, and the Wookie Flyer all at Target.   ;D

Hmmm... what have I passed on?  Only the stupid Spinning Yoda, the Super Battle Droid and the deluxe Spider droid and deluxe Obi Wan/Super Battle Droid I think.

You passed on the Tarkin wave?  Do you now like the Ask Aak figure?  I like it a lot, I think it's one of the best figures this year.  Great for customs too...

To be honest I have never seen it.  And because of it I decided not to actively search for it or I may end up getting an ulcer.

However, I have said it many times, aliens and droids are my favorite figures, even a crappy alien can lead to customizing galore.
