I just bought 5 Final Duel II sets tonight for $2 each in order to do some army building ! :)

If I like what I can come up with out of the limited pieces in all of those sets, I may go back for more . . . I'm thinking of using all of those arch pieces to form a Detention Block.

Yes, but would we let you have a job here in the states to earn the money necessary to fund your Star Wars habit! :greedy: I was working three jobs, and I swear one of thos jobs just went to funding my collecting habit.

Here in Singapore, one of those set cost S$16.9 and that convert to USD9.38 average. If they ever are sold USD2 here, you bet I'll get a truckload back home.

I bought 7 more sets, but these were $2.50.
If I can find anymore, I'll get more. :crazed:

Also, I picked up 2 more Ewok Attack sets; the Biker Scouts and Stormies will be very useful while I'll make due with the extra Ewoks. Hmmm, I don't want too many hang gliders (at least I can vary them up with the different colored Ewoks). I definately don't want anymore catapults so I think I'll put those pieces toward some sort of Ewok hut . . .

Yep, I have bought over 2 dozen all together now.

Meijer's: 6(?) for $3.50 each
Meijer's: 17 for $1.75 each
Wal-Mart: 7 for $3.00 each

Meijer's had a sale to clearance these out and I bought a few sets for $3.50 each. I went back a week or two later and they had 'em marked down to $1.75!!!! Needless to say, I cleaned them out, they had 17 sets left! A few days later I stopped by another Meijer's and they were cleaned out, so I went to Wal-Mart and found 7 sets on sale for $3.00 each.

I also noticed that KB Toys has these on sale for 3/$10.00! Not too bad.

They are the same stormtrooper, but it's gonna take some real man strength to get that keyring outta there. I think that thing extends all the way down through the body. I tried to get my darthvader one out, but no go! Maybe you could saw them off??? and then paint the metal part white??

good luck and nice collection too :)

Also the key ring figures are all one piece, they don't come apart like regular mini-figures. So I'd say that they're not just like the regular figures.

oh really the guy who sold me them said they were like the normal ones still i got 28 of them sealed in their bags for 10 pounds so im not complaining as the final duel 2 set costs 6 pounds and you only get one trooper

For the most part they are the same. I'm sure Lego uses most of the same pieces to make the key chains as they do the regulars. Big differences are they are all one piece, the Lego logo on the back, and a metal ring in the head. If your looking for stormtrooopers to set up a diorama or for army building, I'd said you hit the jackpot. But you were hoping for a score of real mini-figures I'd say that's not what you got.
