Scanning Trooper
Lando Skiff
Jawas
Tusken Raider

I ordered a Scanning Crew trooper from Bills Toys and Games, who ended up ripping me off. So I still need all those dudes carded, and all but Lando loose. :P

Nope, not a one.  Every single one of them was purchased by me on trilogo cards and promptly shipped off to JuvyD.

I did see only a single stormtrooper though.  Still have a hard time believing they packed it only one per case and shipped it once.

I never saw any of those either, but the Jawas were the only ones I wanted.  I suppose I can live without them.

I believe the only one I never saw was the Gamorrean Guard. There were a few I only saw once like IG-88,  TIE Pilot, Biker Scout, and Snowtrooper though.

I never saw CZ-3.  Oh wait, Hasbro hasn't been nice enough to make that one yet.

The only one off hand that I can think of that I never saw at all was the scanning trooper.  Others I only saw once though  - Tusken and Jawas.

Saw every one at retail, although some (Gam. Guard, Jawa, Tusken, Sandtrooper, Stormtrooper, etc.) only once.  The scanning trooper actually peg warmed around here for awhile.

Unless it was in the Dagobah, Bespin, or General waves, I never saw it.  :(

Technically that's not a bad thing, that means you never had to see re-released figures. Of course it sucks if you intended to buy the re-released figs, but for someone who wasn't, not seeing old figures on the shelves may have been bliss.

Never saw:

#01 - Luke Dagobah Handstand version (bought him online)
#21 TIE Fighter Pilot (bought him online)
#22 Greedo (bought him online)
#23 Tusken Raider (bought him online)
#24 Jawas (bought him online)
#26 Luke Skywalker (Bespin Gear) (Still need 2)
#29 Darth Vader (Hoth) (got from Secret Santa  :-* )
#30 Gamorrean Guard (got from Secret Santa  :-* )
#31 Bib Fortuna (got from Secret Santa  :-* )
#33 Princess Leia (Slave Outfit) (got from Secret Santa  :-* )
#34 Darth Vader (got from Secret Santa  :-* )
#35 Han Solo (AT-ST Driver) (got in a trade)
#36 General Madine (got in a trade)
#37 General Lando Calrissian (got in a trade)
#38 Imperial Trooper (got 1 in a trade, still looking for another 2)

As you can see, my area just never seemed to get many of these after the first few waves. And I'm still missing one or two of them  :-\

I did what I could to help clear those pegs :P

The scout trooper showed up here around Christmas in big numbers.  That was more than a little weird.

Um, not at those prices :o  If they mark them down to $5, I'd take a few more.  They are kind of a cheesy body though, very POTF2-ish.
