I got sucked in. They're pretty cool - I need about 15 to complete my set. If anyone is interested in them, lmk, I have a ton of extras.

Yes I am collecting these miniatures. Unfortunetly, being a college student at UIC, I have to watch my spending and not buy too many of these at one time, so I doubt I have anything you need.

Here are the extras I have after buying 4 boosters and a starter:

1x Elite Hoth Trooper #5
1x Rebel Trooper #18
1x Rebel Trooper #19
1x Wookie Soldier #20
1x Heavy Stormtrooper #28
1x Snowtrooper #35
1x Stormtrooper #37
1x Stormtrooper #38
3x Bespin Guard #41
1x Mon Calamari Mercenary #53

Here is what I still need:
1. Bothan Spy
2. C-3PO
3. Chewbacca
4. Commando on Speeder Bike
7. Han Solo
8. Hoth Trooper
9. Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight
11. Obi-Wan Kenobi
12. Princess Leia, Captive
13. Princess Leia, Senator
14. R2-D2
16. Rebel Officer
17. Rebel Pilot
22. Darth Vader, Sith Lord
23. Elite Snowtrooper
25. Emperor Palpatine
26. General Veers
27. Grand Moff Tarkin
29. Imperial Officer
30. Mara Jade, Emperorís Hand
36. Stormtrooper
39. Stormtrooper Officer
40. Sandtrooper on Dewback
42. Boba Fett
43. Dengar
44. Duros Mercenary
47. Gamorrean Guard
48. IG-88
50. Jabba the Hutt
51. Jawa
55. Greedo
56. Bossk
57. Tuskin Raider
58. Twiílek Bodyguard
60. Wampa

If you have any extra rares/very rares and are willing to sell them for a decent price let me know. I am holding off on buying any commons/uncommons until I decide not to buy any more boosters. Let me know what you need in case I ever do get some extrs.

I'm sure once I see them, if they are even half way decent, I'll get roped into buying them, so where is the best place to get these things anyway?

The best place to order is on-line or buy a case from a comic shop. Robert from SWCCM got our cases, and Keith ordered from someone on-line...I'll get back to you and let you know.

I just started collecting these too, and I think I'm hooked. MarleyEds, what do you need? I don't have a ton, but I may be lucky and have something you need. DGFD, I think I have a couple extra that you need, maybe we can swing a deal.

Hey mewsh1, do you need anything that I have extras of? Which figures do you have that I need?

DGFD, I have an extra Reble Pilot and Gamorrean Guard. Off your list I need Mon Calimari Mercenary, Wookie Soldier, and Elite Hoth Trooper. I am probably going to pick up another booster or 2 at the end of the week so I may have more extras you need then.

DGFD

Well let me know what you get, because I would be willing to trade with you. An uncommon for an uncommon or two commons for an uncommon. Let me know!

I have not compiled my extras yet, but I think I have a few you need...including Wookie Soldier and Mon Calamari Mercenary

Any answers on the best stores to get these in? I stopped at a Gamestop and they had a couple of Booster Packs, but no Starter Sets. I picked up a booster just to check them out. I think I may be hooked. The best three figures I got were a Duros Mercenary, Gamorrean Guard and Han Solo. The other 4 were all commons.
I hate the fact that they list what is common and what is rare. It could just cause idiots to jack up the prices. But I guess on the other hand we won't see auction titles like EXCLUSIVE ULTRA-RARE EWOK, because any collector should know that this is a lie. Anybody collect other miniatures and know how this plays out?

UPDATE: I just called my local Borders and they have the starter sets. I'll be picking one up tonight.

Its much cheaper to order a case on-line or from a comic book shop - it comes out to about $8-9 per booster pack when you buy by the case opposed to $12 per case.

Just wondering if anyone has found the Clone Strike set anywhere yet.
I recently found the Rebel Strike sets at Target and have quickly become addicted to collecting these.Just what I needed http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif. Another Star Wars outlet to dump my money into.

You can special order them, Clone Strike, from Barnes and Noble of all places. I got a booster and a Starter from them as a Christmas present from the girlfriend.

Thanks for the info. I'll check it out. I have noticed many sets appearing on Ebay but that's about it right now.

Anybody still building the sets? I'm looking for some to complete the first set and I need a bunch for clone strike.I just wanted to know if anyone had extras they might want to trade. I'm going through my extras now to make a list.

DGFD

I have completed my rebel storm set and I am about 14 miniatures away from completing my clone strike set. Since I do not buy by the case, I only need VRs and Rs, and I only have extra commons and uncommons.

I have some extra rares from Clone Strike, plus a lot of UC/C if you need them.
