It will "start shipping to newsstands September 26". I'm not sure if that means they'll be put on the racks on the 26th, or that's when they leave the warehouse.

Has anyone gotten this issue of SW Insider?

I haven't had the chance to check my local bookstores, but am wondering whether it'll be available at a place like Barnes & Noble.  Has anybody gotten it there, at Wal-Mart, or Target?

Not yet, but I'll hit up Borders this week most likely.  Seeing some stuff in there for potential customs?

It came in the mail this week... and to be honest, I was pretty disappointed. There are not that many pictures, and most of them are the same shots that I've seen a hundred times already.

Yeah, I'm mostly looking for pics I haven't seen before, and help with colors for some of the different clones.  From what Jokabofe said, it sounds like it's a cheap ploy to get us clonuts to buy more clone crap.  How pathetic.  Even more pathetic however, is I'll probably still buy it.  ;)

So Jokabofe, did it have the same pics that were in the EPIII Visual Dictionary?

On a similar note, where's the best place for EPIII reference pics (specifically clone commanders) that you guys have found?

I'm looking forward to acquiring this issue: Karen's pretty proud of it and she's a wonderful writer, plus she can talk about clones all day long, so I'm excited to see what this issue has in store.

Its been a few weeks since I last came here (very busy with my own forum/school and stuff)


I found it at my local Library There are several New Commanders

Commander Deviss: the red hasbro commander
Captain  Jag: the blue pilot who shot down Plo Koon
Captain Fordo (Fordo Baggins LOL): The Red ARC in CW
Sergeant Fox: The Blue 501 clone who chased away Bail Organa
Galactic Marines: The Mygeeto Snow Clones

Hope this helps!

Thanks DDaestron.  I picked it up yesterday, and I echo Jokabofe's thoughts on it.  Not enough pictures.

The writing was great and informative, but more pics would've been nice.

I was actually dissaponted by the Stormie/Clonie article, they needed to have more pictures and explain more about the Imperial Shocktroopers, 501st, etc. The issue also has some pics of new Battlepacks, including the Clone Attack on Courascant one.

I read this magazine today but that red clone commander that they said was supposed to be Bly originally now is being explained as another commander called Deviss or something.

Other than that which was annoying I liked the info on Bacara's boys and stuff.  I was kind of expecting a little more from this section of the insider though, it was pretty hyped up.

Does anyone know how to reach the subscription department? I've been a subscriber for years and never received issue #84 :(

Is the only way to reach them by snail mail?

My issue also lists insider.starwars.com or 510-768-2700 as ways to contact them.  Hope it helps.

Thanks Jesse! Some how missed the number in the small print. :P

I called and it turns out my subscription had been suspended somehow. Our postman had listed the magazine as undeliverable, dispite having the propper address. ??? It all got sorted out now and my issues 84 and 85 are on the way. :D
