Thanks, I can't wait for them either....can't find anymore rebels....enlisting an Army of Hoth Hans is my only option for right now since he's warming the pegs...how scary are welding masks and torches??????

I was at work today and though to myself "I wonder what 100 Snowtroopers looks like!!!". Then I saw your title thread and was like "ZOMG!!11!". But after counting only a little over 60 I'm still left wondering what 100 snowtroopers looks like. :cry:

Judging from that second picture, General Veers' strategy of taking out the power generator would be pointless because of that big power outlet.

Well, after scoring another AT-AT at Kmart for $44.99, I had to add it to the diorama.....this one will be knocked down with it's head on the ground and bottom up:thumbsup: pics coming:twisted:

I love the dude hanging on the back hatch....although it would be hilarious to see a trooper holding the hand of another who is about to fall (into a snow sarlacc!).

Nice pics!

Can I ask you how much it cost you for all of that?



Because if you buy soldiers in bulk you should check out this seller on eBay: tunghori heres a link to his eBay page: http://myworld.ebay.com/tunghori/

Ok...here we go:
150 snowtroopers x average $4 = $600
4 AT-AT ($89,$89,$45,$45) = $270
6 Hoth Defense 6 Attack ($40ea) = $480
8 snowspeeders x $20ea = $160
random figures and diorama = $100

I don't drink, smoke, or gamble....I have one wife and one 5 year old son and no pets....all of this = Star Wars toys:thumbsup: priceless....

Thats a nice hefty collection! You should check out that seller though on eBay from my previous post, he sells figures in bulk. It might save you some money and you'd get a lot of figures! :Ogre:

So, about $1,500 for that setup, almost all of it purchased since the beginning of summer 2010? I don't smoke or gamble, and only have the occasional beer with dinner (always purchased on sale and never at a restaurant), and have a 4-year-old kid, and we make pretty good money and have better job security than most, and there's no way I could drop that sort of dough for figures in one summer. Even a quarter of that in a summer would be seriously pushing my ability to not get divorced and/or foreclosed upon.

You're not secretly a master shoplifter, are you? :D

well......I donate plasma about 4 x a day.....lol
No, I work in the Emergency Room and perform the same job as Doogie Howser....This allows me to have expendable income to army-build:thumbsup:
Like I said, I don't smoke, drink, or gamble so think of all that money I save on a weekly basis......My wife is just glad I'm not spending all my cash at nudie bars lol

For the record, that seller appears to be getting his products illegally, whether it's through making extras in the factory and keeping them for himself or what. So while I'm sure it's a nice way to get extra figures cheap, and to pad this guy's wallet a bit, it ultimately hurts the line as Hasbro isn't seeing any money for what is essentially stolen goods.

Was this ever confirmed? I heard that from a friend earlier this year, but I thought it was pure speculation. I bought from him years ago and one of the lots all had two left hands. They were for custom use, so that aspect didn't bother me, but I presumed from that experience that his stock was either test shots or mistakes that were discarded.

From what I'm told, though I cannot personally confirm this, there are these type of toys littered throughout many metropolitan marketplaces in much of southeast Asia. Toys from these sellers are said to be extremely cheap, in the range of $1 or less per figure.
