    I'm already planning to buy more figures this year than last year

    I just looked over JediMasterSal's list confirmed product list for 2007 and there are already 26 figures listed as coming for sure.

    While I don't plan to buy each individual one, I do intend to get 33 figures from the ones that are confirmed and listed. To me it's a good indicator that Hasbro is doing something right when I want to buy more figures than they are individually marketing (even if I don't want them all). So it looks like there will be something for me to be happy about. See : Happy! Happy!

    as I want to be a completist (at least have 1 figure each loose) there are alot of figures for me this year. also I have crossed over into the army building aspect of the hobby. while not as large as some people on this site, my troop building is limited to only 5 - 10 clones / stormies and officers if they are different. so this year so far looks to be $$$$.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Me, too, but mainly because OT features heavily in the new line-up. Also, a lot of the figures are flat out new (Helrot), significantly improved retools (Luke), OT troopers, or flat out supersweet EU, even though I usually hate EU (McQuarrie Fett).

    If only they would drop the price to around $5.50, I would go pretty deep into this line. As of now, I see 10-15 30th figures, and about half the "Greatest Hits" figures.

    heh, now think if that list that's been circulating is true as well....Man, it's going to be one hellafied expensive year!!!

    I suppose we should start budgeting right now... (Like some of us did last year.)

    Crap, I had hoped to trim my buying from $6K of last year down to $4k at least. Looks like that's not going to happen. In fact, it looks like it might be closer to $7K worth of stuff...Damn (In a good way, heh heh.)

    Same here, except I won't get the EU or Concept figures. There are several figures I plan on getting from the Legends line, most of which were pack-ins or VOTC I skipped the first time around. Just counting the first 4 waves, VTAC, and the Legends lineup, I plan on getting about 20 figures plus the Tantive IV battlepack.
    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    OK:

    Concept Figures - no - except the Chewie figure might be useable as another random background alien. (it does not look like a Wookiee - and I can't recall if I saw a figure, or a design picture).

    EU figures - most of the characters from comics, but not Marvel repaints of OT characters like blue Darth Vaders.

    Resculpts - while I swore I'd never buy another Vader or Luke Tatooine, Hasbro's actually managed to tempt me! I will try again to resist when I encounter these in the store (Vader over Obi-Wan's cloak, Twin Sunset Luke) but I doubt I can help breaking down and buying these. Grrrr.

    So - 33 figures so far:

    4 Galactic Marines
    1 R2-D2
    2 Lava Miners
    2 Airborne Troopers
    1 Super Battle Droid (possibly 2, but unlikely)
    6 Death Star Troopers
    2 Rebel Honor Guards (I don't need these, but...)
    1 Biggs Academy
    3 Elris Helrots
    1 Jawa and LIN Droid
    1 Vader on Obi-Wan's robe
    1 Twin Sunset Luke Tatooine (....must...resist...temptation)
    5 CZ-3s
    1 Umpass Stay
    2 Luke Jedi Knights (pending)
    -----------------------------
    33 figure purchase plans so far. 26 different kinds were offered so far. I'm interested in 15 of the different ones.

    If true: 1 of each

    MOMAW NADON JEDI

    PRE-CYBORG GRIEVOUS
    DARTH RAVEN
    HAN SOLO W/ TORTURE RACK
    LANDO IN SMUGGLER OUTFIT

    PADME W/BLK LTHR OUTFIT
    JANGO FETT W/ PONCHO
    WOLFMAN JEDI GEONOSIS
    DESTROYER DROID W/SHIELD

    2 Packs
    All of Wave 2 & Possibly 3
    Vintage (all 1 time)
    Vehicles (Sith Infiltrator) (Possibly one or two others)

    That's quite enough for now.
    THANKS FOR THE AT-TE & FALCON HASBRO. NOW IT'S TIME FOR A LARGE TANTIVE IV!

    I'm going to be cautious and wait until i see pictures added to archives of opened product before i decide whether to buy anything or not. Money is too scarce a commodity these days to be frivolous and just buy a bunch of stuff without checking out quality and so on.

    and then, then i'll wait and buy everything loose from Ebay and save money.
