This afternoon I visited a Target and saw twelve VOTC Stormtroopersand a few Fets, I know that I posted before that at 10 a pop they are a rip of from Hasbro and that I would not buy them. Well I saw them hanging on the pegs an a moment later found myself at the register with eleven of them,they look awsome and the card brought back the memories from when i was a little girl and used to get those at TRU. any how They are the best figures to come out since the SA clone which was priced very aforable

holy bananas! Are you going to make dioramas with 11 Stormtroopers or sell them to friends?!!? I ordered all my stuff from wal-mart.com as they actually had all of the VOTC figures for a while. They're waiting for me at home and i can't wait to bust out my extra Fett and Yoda. Cheers! :D

No wonder I couldn't find any ROTJ VOTC today at the 4 Targets I visited for that purpose. :(

Enjoy your figures none the less Mina, but if I see a silver and red motorcycle in the parking lot with a Star Wars license plate next time I'm out and about, I'm taking it. ;)

I'll say they are worth it just because I knew I would not see them again and if I wanted any I would needed to pay a premium plus shipping but... I still say they should (Hasbro) change the package and charge us less. Well I can always dream right?

Yes Mina, we can all dream. I dream one day I might actually see the ROTJ wave in person and get at least 1 stormtrooper

I also finally caved. I swore I would only get one of these guys but, now I have my army building magic number of six. They are just a little to cool to just have one. I have been lucky around here though, Stormies are everywhere.

I saw my first votc stormtrooper bout a week ago at Shop Ko. I almost bought it til I noticed the price. $12.99!!!!. No way am I paying that $9.99 is bad enough. On a side note I was back in the store next day picking up Van Helsing on dvd so I strolled thru the star wars isle hoping maybe the price was a typo or somthin. Nope, still same price on votc and the stormtrooper was gone. Somebody musta really wanted it.

The biggest problem with the VOTC Stormy is the paint ops on the helmet - I got lucky and got a good one a little over a month ago, and while I've probably seen another 10 or so since, not one of them had acceptable paint - either lots of stray black, or way too little in the eyes.

I have another four coming (hopefully) from my pre-orders, and I've got my fingers crossed that they'll be decent.

These are figures I'd like to get two of each, but I rarely see anything besides the ANH figures. I found Vader and Yoda at TRU once. They didn't last long. Eventually found C-3PO at K-Mart. Had to go 30 miles south to find the last five figures. Ever since then, all I've seen are tons of ANH and one Lando. I think Fred Meyer has an ad where they are marking down the VOTC to $7.99, so maybe I'll get my ANH doubles there. I could probably wait and get them cheaper if Wal-Mart marks them down because they have the most right now.
