Wow!  Go big or go home, eh? 

I like to troop build, but doing it to this extent with the current price structure is a little tough for me.

Hah yeah.  3 tanks, 3 tankers per (assuming now that I've done this, they will sell a commander, and I will be forced to simply buy a 4th tank and have a spare guy just hanging out).

I'm basically all in on new TVC.  It's pricey, sure, but it's what I dig.  The 5POA doesn't satiate my carnal Star Wars articulation needs.   :-[

To be fair (to me) though, I probably would've bought dozens of these guys at $10 and yeah, I can't do that stuff anymore...  3 each per 3 tanks is about probably my budget's limit.  I also figure I won't be spending TOO much on Star Wars this year too.  I mean no new film launch, product will be sporadic...  At least product I want since I don't buy 6" at all really. 

I just committed to something far, far worse than the above though.  ::)  I cannot even speak of it at the moment.

I just received an e-mail from EE that they can't fulfill my order because Jesse bought all the Tank Drivers.   ;D

Well obviously Jesse didnít get all the tankers or I got my order in on time as Iíve not gotten an EE rejection email  ;)

I ordered 3 of the tankers along with a Han and Enfys Nest.  Iím glad EE is taking orders for single figures as I donít need a whole case and donít have the time to hit up every retail store!  Part of me thinks these could wind up being peg warmers once they hit retail, however...  Iíve seen a lot of the first wave sitting around at Target mostly, even army builders like the FO Stormtroopers.

Internet forums are the worst place for sarcasm and satire.

Even though it's costing me a bit more, I too pre-ordered everything I needed from this wave from EE. If I find more army builders or another Enfys Nest out in the wild, great, but if I never find any of these three new figures, I'll be okay.

Kinda my thinking too Pete.  Iíll pick up some more in the wild if I see them.  I will want fodder and duplicates I feel sure.  But knowing I have my minimums met is nice.

Same here - I'll probably pick up a couple extra Solo Han figures if I can find them for 'old Han' head swaps and what not, but not at $13 each.  But I'll pay the EE price to make sure I find a couple for sure, especially on that Tanker Driver.

If they do this, all the time, every figure, for TVC, count me in.  And count me in for extras on army building.  Yeah, it's a little more money, but so is gas, wear and tear on my cars, and time....  and my nerves.  The "hunt" for me is stupid at this point, financially speaking.
