You know, the Sandtroper helmet looks a lil better!! That small space of white between the lenses and strip going across the top makes him look much more menacing!!

Now what to do with my singular Desert Trooper?


Get two of them by trading my Desert Trooper for one of your Stormtroopers.


Sorry bro :)

I love this line but refuse to army build anymore.

Yeah, it wasn't cheap which is why watched Hasbro toy shop like a hawk. Anytime later and it was only going to be more expensive. The only 2 harder things are buying Transformers and Army Building Marvel Legends.

I guess I'm not too worried about Stormtrooper now that I think about it. They did a good job of reissuing guys in the 3 3/4" line and hopefully the same will be true here.

And is it true they're rolling him over into the Darth Vader wave?

I think the black line on the Stormtrooper is too thick...

Just went back and saw the side by side pic, yeah that strip is wayyy to thick!! I'm hoping its just for that one figure only, and the rest look more like the Sandtrooper's helmet!!

I was hoping the Stormtrooper helmet nit picking would be over. This coming from a guy who was sitting fat, dumb and happy for YEARS with his "inaccurate" 3 3/4" Stormtrooper helmets and never realizing it :rolleyes:

I was under the impression that the Stormtrooper helmets were pretty varied anyway. Like some had that thick dark line, others had a thin line with a bit of white showing underneath, etc.

I like how certain online sellers (coughbigbadtoysorecough) will scalp Stormtrooper for $13 more and it STILL sells out.

One of the great lies sellers tell people is that they hike the price of army builders to discurrage people from buying multiples and in the process "save some for the rest of the fans". If they really cared about that, they'd just set a limit. Just say you're hiking the price because you know you'll make more money! Just be honest!

Oh well, the hunt continues.

Actually, that's part of the reason. The other part is to help with the others that come in the case that they get stuck with and then sometimes sell at a loss. This wave is a perfect example. It comes with a Han, which, they already know they're stuck with because he was in the last wave, so what'd they do? Mark him down half price. They have to bump up the price of the hot seller because, like you said, if they didn't, people would gobble them up, like the guy above you that got 10 from HTS.com is a prime example (which last I checked was a limit of two per customer). They have to find a middle ground and it always isn't easy.

I've bought cases of figures in the past, especially around the 30th anv star wars days. I would sell the rest that I didnt want and soo many times I was stuck with the stragglers that I too had to bump up the army builder or one-per-casers because then I could sell the ones people didnt really want a lot cheaper and it would help move them.

Remember, they're still a business and still have overhead to pay, they can't just sell stuff for a loss to make fans happy or they wouldn't still be here.

I'd be open to the case option too IF those didn't also get a price hike. Even with cases, they'll bump up the cost another $20 so it's like I'm paying for a phantom figure.

I guess the rest of what you said makes sense, though.

Their cases come with Han. What do you expect them to do, eat the cost of Han to make the fans happy?




What phantom figure are you talking about?




Wave 1

Wave 2

Wave 3

You can go above the limit on preorders...

I can see both sides. On one hand, if BBTS knows they aren't going to sell those Hans at full price, they're smart to discount them and mark up the Stormtroopers to compensate, since those *will* sell, even with a price hike. On the other hand... it's not the customer's fault that Hasbro packed their cases like that, but we (the royal "we") are being asked to shoulder the burden.

Those cases seem to be priced just fine though.

Before Wave 2 started hitting retail real hard, they had Boba Fett up for preorder on Amazon for $19.99, and he stayed up for that price for awhile. That's how I got the two that I have. I'm hoping the Storm Trooper will be the same way.

I remember that... It was when most people including myself was on the fence about this line...
