I'd like my second Scorch to actually try to improve it, but damned if I can find any Clone...

I've got an extra Scorch. Got any of the stuff I have listed in bold on my want list?

I'm just holding hope I can find one Ook, and that we get landslides of new figures sometime soon.  WM's are putting out plan-o-gram things so maybe they're gonna have new stuff soon around here.

It's ok, you did more than enough favors for me already with the last shipment...  I'm holding hope he ships enough people sicken of seeing him and scalpers lose faith in Hasbro making this their year to shine.

It's March...  I can hope.

Come September if Scorch is still a bitch to find I'll go into a slight panic on the 2nd one.  :)  I'm just glad I didn't care for it enough to not want to actually army build it a lot.  Had that figure been SA I'd be thudding my head off a wall.

I passed on him so many times and now everyone is saying how cool he is.  It is going to suck trying to get more than one of him now.  I settle for about 5.

That Sun Fac army pic is REALLY cool... makes me wish prices were lower so I could snag a few more.

I passed on Sun Fac, and I will likely never see him again. Damn.

Anyone have the Saga Deluxe Threepio with Battle Droid factory thingy? Are the magnets in their heads visble, obtrusive? Or are they well hidden??

Thanks. I was looking at RS's pics again, and I think I can see it now in this shot.

Yeah, thats it. They are small and most easily seen when staring straight down.

All I can say right now with Poggle and Sun Fac is die bugs die! They are clogging the pegs here in Utah and I fear that they may interfere with new stuff when it arrives. However, I think this is just the beginning of the summer peg warms as the pegs fill up with junk and then other items become very hard to find. Target seems to do this more so than Walmart and it is in the May to June time frame each year that the transition begins where Target is the place to get new stuff and that switches to Walmart. I wonder when the Hasbro reps will come in and clean these out like they did here with the Nemod. Warrior last year?

Buy your Sun Fac's...  Buy many.  They're a good worthy army builder.  I'd say they're on-par (or better) than the AT-AT Driver IMO at this point.  You get 2 weapons, pop his wings off and he's another warrior...  If you can get past his eye scar, he's really one of the better army builders.

The leg articulation isn't bad due to their physiology too.  I can get mine in walking poses, running poses, lunging poses, standing neutral...  And arm articulation is as perfect as it can get.

With 2 unique weapons for Geo carniage, it's a great figure, so buy it while you see it.  I wish I'd been able to capitalize on Sun Fac's during the TRU sale but alas he's not at TRU's here.  The only place I see him is Target and in sparse supply in my area.

I've got around 10 I think...  I'd like a large number more though.  I'm hoping to run into a lot at WM to put on lay-away.

Jesse, I have 4 and for me that is more than enough. Rough army building these at $7 a pop, and I honestly think that is where most people are on these, and so yes, it is IMO, an excellent figure, but the cost is prohibiting the type of army building the average collector would like to do.
