To add to my last post ... I would like to also say that I dont think its wrong if its for example a little kids or kids and a parent to have a large army or 30 or so clones . I do however think that if its just one dude and he only buys 1 figure but in mass ... thats why i think is @$!#$% up. Its just flat out takin away from our kids and other collectors who want to grow up with Star Wars the same way we did... and still are lol.

ps
    I think the Armys look great like that but yeh well you get the idea....

First off, when buying multiples you should show respect for other people.  I will never pick up more than 2-3 of one figure per visit.   Second, although army building is something I started 10 years ago, it is something that my son and I can enjoy together.  As a whole, I dont know any kids that army build.  Why?  They just dont have the disposable income that adult collectors do.  If kids are buying mulitples in the numbers some of us are buying, I can say the kid is most likely spoiled.  This stuff aint cheap.

I for sure agree when its a family things its ok ... I just think that the more armys that are built the less there are to go around for other people and the kids who cant afford it are really not left with much because of ebay and the hundreds if not thousands of people buying only clones or only one type of figure. After thinking about all this I think i might just stop from buying stuff on ebay thats from star wars...o man i cant believe i just said that .

I really hand no intention of makin anyone feel bad for loveing Star Wars Clones or any other figure for that matter. I just wanted to put it out on the table for everyone to see. Its gonna be very hard for kids or start up collectors like myself lol to be able to find this stuff and force more people to ebay and pay more then they could have if somone left a few clones or what have you on the shelf for others . Armys are the coolest thing to look at but I just think it should be done in moderation and in respect to the little kids who think WOW a clone or vader or a at te tank gunner ...I WANT ONE !

Its just gonna be that more kids loose either intrest or the hope of finding that special toy...

I'm planning on 6 or so Baccaras and hopefully 10 Tarkins.

Are you customizing the Tarkins? I'd like to, but I'm not that skilled. Share your ideas if you are. 8)

Wait...can someone explain why 6 Bacaras would be needed?  There's only 1 in the movie.  You can't customize grunts out of him.  I don't get that one.

Kevin, when I said kids, I did not mean teenagers with jobs.  Big difference.  As far as collecting mulitples of the Bacarra. Im sure there were more Commanders offscreen with the same type of outfit.
