+21 (not a typo) Galaxy Patrols. Apparently it was enough to warrant getting a free "Classic Minifigures Vol. 2" set, which came with both White and Black Spacemen (and a postman, pirate, and red ninja).

Man, what a coincidence! I literally just obtained 21 galaxy patrols myself, about half a week ago, building a new faction with them. Got a volume 1 set with mine, came with a red spaceman, a fireman, an octan employee, a dangerous escaped psychopath, and some kind of civilian chick. I assume you raided a local toys r us? That's where I got mine.

I mined my local TrUs out a while ago- I was at the one in Times Square. I actually stopped pawing bags, because I reached a logical limit on what I could spend in one sitting. But I'm in NYC quite a bit, maybe they'll still have some when I get back.

Anything in the lower half of the endcap right through the revolving door went ungroped. The upper half I cleaned out, though.

a lot of my NYC time is spoken for, but possibly!

EDIT- Oh wait, You did say the Times Square TRUS (thought it said LEGO store there for a second), so I guess we were at the same exact store! I was there a few Saturdays ago, the 30th. They were having a buy one, get one 40% off sale on their lego items, so I grabbed up enough galaxy patrol guys to make a small skirmish force (21). Same location, same minifigs, same number of figs, talk about deja vu.

Whoa. It's especially bizarre given that I pulled 23 but put two back... 21 "felt" like a better number for some reason.

<cue Twilight Zone theme>

Just to prove we aren't the same guy, these reinforcements bring me up to 54 Galaxy Patrols. I almost stopped at 21, but pushed on like Bonn-o-Tron.

I should be back around the end of the month, hopefully they'll still be plentiful. Although there's not really a round number again until 100, and I rrrrreeeeaallllyyyy can't afford that.

54? No way that's exactl- not really, I only have the 21, I may expand later, but I'm only making a small skirmish sized force of them. I can see why you have so many though, it's a fantastic minifigure design, one of the best lego's ever done, IMO. And 21 is good, because you can have 4 squads of 4, each headed up by an officer, with one extra fig to serve as the commander, which is what I reasoned when I bought that many.

Ha! That's basically my unit division, too. Five man squads, one being a Sgt., with a force commander. The three spare guys will be drivers/pilots.

And I agree about how cool the Galaxy Patrol guys are (obviously). It helps that I played 40k before I played Brikwars... I'm basically making Space Marines. My hope is that if they do release them as sets, they'll be a different color, so I can have multiple "Chapters".

Treehouse set is actually really cool; highly recommend it:

Generic pink box o' bricks... nice filler pieces. Minifig looks like a retard with that shirt and orange pants. Guess they still are trying to get rid of all those orange legs from all those shitty city sets =P

Those Uruk-hai better be running. That fiend in the treehouse has a death ray telescope, while the one in the pastel-colored car has a spiked hairbrush of doom.
