I told my girlfriend a few nights ago that I'll probably save up for a few months and have about $200-$300 at the ready, perhaps more as images are revealed. Though I was also talking to my friends yesterday, and I told them that the big determining factor for me is how articulated the figures will be, and if any vehilces/playsets are offered. If Hasbro limits the basic line to only a few figures, then I'll obviously be spending a lot less. If there are only 5 POA figures offered this time around, then I probably won't buy any action figures at all. Likewise, if the price continues to rise, or even stays at the Target price point of $12.99, then I'll definitely limit my purchases.
One other issue that I'm considering is that I don't really like the look of the Stormtroopers just yet. They look kind of like this little minivan I park next to on campus sometimes, and I haven't been able to shake that idea yet. As of now, I don't really plan to army build them, but I'll have to see just how much action occurs on screen with them involved. I made that mistake with the ROTS clones, which I thought I was going to love. I think I got like 8 of them during Midnight Madness, however I would have much preferred the Phase 1 AOTC style troopers...
