only reason i ever feel overwhelmed is because of the prices, especially at target, I saw ninja kus bats and bludds there from the new revision wave and walked out pissed cause they woulda been almost 10 bucks a goddamn figure. I hate seeing the shit i want and not being able to pick it up cause the stores over charge for these damn things.

I am overwhelmed with the amount of Army Building I want to do. The way I look at it, there is plenty of time to get what I want over time. If you are short on cash just buy what you can't do without and just pick up the other stuff over time.
For example......... I am building B.A.T.'s and IG's while Snow Serpents and the rest of my Crimson Guards need to be put on hold.
Pick your poison.

I have been enjoying the line (for the most part) but I am getting a little bit tired of hunting and finding nothing there. Gonna go after the jets, and more than likely I will waste a ton of time looking for something that isn't even there. Never got a chance to pre order them, and they went fast there. Stuff like that is annoying, but I just try to buy what I really want. Hasbro is very irratating at how they conduct their business sometimes.

Try being in Canada. Its hard enough to find stuff at stores. I think I'm just going to recreate the collection I had as a kid and thats it. I collected from 82-85' so it shouldn't be too hard to to do. I haven't even seen any vehicles yet.

Wave four 07, was just single card repacks from the different five-packs. Wave four 08, was again, mostly unchanged repaints, and Wave eight 08, follows suite.
Weíre still getting creative repaints though, Snow Serpents, Barbeque, Bazooka troopers, Wild Bill, HISS Driver just to name a few. So theyíre out there, and so is the effort, but sometimes those things go unnoticed between the repaint waves.

As I said in my original post, I am feeling overwhelmed by repaints. I may not have phrased my thoughts correctly, but that is what I meant. If they were cranking out new molds I would be on top of all their products. Pieces like Iron Grenadier are just lazy. It looks like a crappy black repaint of BA CC, because that it exactly what it is. Figures like that have killed my interest in the line, along with rehashes of the same core characters.
My feedback thread is here.

I think this is the first thread I've seen with a complaint of too much product!
I do agree that the repaints are getting a bit mundane... But I'm in this for the long haul... I will get the new figures, unless they make no sense (like the lame blue Baroness). In fact, I've cut down my Star Wars collecting by about 60% because, frankly, it's just not fun anymore. In 84 when Star Wars toys (for the most part) ended, GI Joe became my #1 go-to toy... I'm almost feeling that same thing happen. The Clone Wars/prequel stuff is not my Star Wars, so to Joe I go!
