First of all, I'd like to say that if it hadn't been for the fine people who frequent this board, I would be up the creek without a paddle.  I'll give those shout-outs in a moment, but it's because of you guys that I have these figures, so I am very appreciative.

And my list:

-WM Early Bird Set: Passed on it.  If/when they wind up on clearance (the "if" also including being clearanced before the offer expires), I'll pick one up, but even then, I don't know.

-Target Lava Vader:  Got one just because I was there at the time they opened.

-TRU Holo Yoda:  Dave (jokabofe) hooked me up with one (thanks Dave!)   :)

-KB 12" Chewbacca:  I don't have a KB around me, and I'm pretty selective on who I buy as a 12" doll, so I passed.

-Target Clone:  Paul (pmundheim) hooked me up with one and he threw in one of his empty clamshells from his to boot, so I'm double appreciative to him.   :)

-C3 Vader:  Jared (Tydirium) stood in line for hours, I'm sure, and was willing to buy a Vader and Star Case for me, so I'm owing him bigtime these days.   ;D

-TRU Anakin Starfighter:  If it shows up on clearance at TRU.com for about 10 bucks, I might get it then.  As of now, I have two Jedi Starfighters in different colors and I can't justify paying 30 bucks for another one with a figure I already have.

So again, thanks to Dave, Paul, and Jared for helping me out.  You guys rule!

Early Bird set - 0 - not too thilled about the figs, but wouldn't mind picking up the package if I ever run into it.

Lava Vader - x3

Holographic Yoda - x2

C3 Vader - x1 Thanks Jeff!!

Target Clone - x2

Kohl's Bonus figure sets - 1 of each - I'm a packaging freak

TRU Anakin Starfighter - x1 - found it today for $19.99 due to their mislabeling

I also have an order in for my 4 EE clone sets.  Some of the local guys in MN had some extra sets, but no one had the clean colored, so I figured I'd just get em all from the source.

I've bought more than what's below - the numbers just indicate what I'm keeping for myself...

Early Bird Set x3
Holo Yoda x4
Lava Vader x3
C3 Vader x3
Target Clone x6
TRU Anakin Starfighter x2
KB 12" Chewie x1

Before the Kohls sets were announced I had already bought four of the preview Wookie Warrior, six of the Clonetrooper #6, and two each of the AT-RT and the Barc Speeder to open.

So for me, getting the two vehicles AGAIN for $20 each just to have the packaging variation isn't that important to me. If I hear Kohls puts them on sale then I'll check out a few stores in my area and see if I can get them cheaper. I look at it this way - for the same price of getting a THIRD Barc Speeder to open, I could get two more Wookie Warriors and two more SA Clones.

No offense Pete, but what in God's name can you be doing with all of these?? I can understand 1 carded and 1 opener, but 3 or 4 when people are having trouble finding them and they aren't even army builders?

Lava Vader - Don't want.

Holographic Yoda - Don't want.

C3 Vader - Don't want.

Target Clone - Two.

Kohl's Bonus figure vehicle sets - None, but if the Wook is a different paint scheme.....I'll have to pick him up and trade off the vehicle.

Pretty much caught up!!!

If anyone still needs EB sets, there is a Walmart near me that is overflowing with them.  Cost plus shipping and I can hook a few people up.

Saw, for my first time, a TON of the Target Clone tonight.  It seems this figure's run its course in popularity...  At least here.  The figure was picked over, it wasn't like the cases were fresh on this, but there were plenty on the pegs (a good 15 +), and I'd say the novelty has worn off.  People just aren't gonna do as much army building as was once thought maybe.

I will have a moderate "team" (tough to even call them a squad) when all is said and done...  Can't afford to go ape**** with this one though.  Too bad because I really like the concept of the variations and all, even if it's a simple money-maker for Hasbro/retail.  I don't mind that, but at $13 a pop they're cost-prohibitive just like the EE army builder sets...  The only difference is the Target Clone at least hides better under the "exclusive" title while the EE sets were supposedly with the intent of people buying LOTS of them.  Can't hardly do that at $10/figure... 

You'll get just that little "team" going, if you're lucky.  :(

Early Bird set: No. Found it, but wasn't interested with the price at the time.

Lava Vader: Yes.

Holographic Yoda: Yes.

C3 Vader: No. Would like one, but it's probably pricey by now.

Target Clone: No. I'd like to find one though.

 but I've never heard of a Costco exclusive...  Anyone have some info on that?  I've never heard of those two stores sharing an exclusive , but maybe that was the impression Anthony's under?  Is that the case Anthony, and there's not actually an additional item that none of us are aware of?

I thought Costco and Sams Club were the same company and therefore both got the same exclusives. I guess I'm wrong. :P

Now that I have the Anakin Starfighter, I'm all caught up.
