Holy cow, tonight I decided to try my little customizing idea on these with a Green Clonetrooper.  I put his upper body on the legs of the Clone in the extended stance.  This looks so cool, I wish I had pics to show you guys!! :o

Woo!

I finally scored the blue clone set and the droid army yesterday and boy do those clones rock!!

I can't wait to get the other variants!

Hasbro needs to do more packs like this...stormies and scouties from the OT would rock like this!

Congrats on your find!  Aren't they just awesome!!!

I could go for Stormie pks as well, Scout Trooper pks. etc, etc, etc...

I ran across another Blue set today... somehow I managed to pass on it (maybe since it was $14.99 at Kay-Bee).  I think that two of those sets are enough for me; I really want a few more green sets though, many more all white sets and a few yellow sets when they come available.

All I need now is the green set (just got the yellow one at Target today).  I like these sets and am glad that they made diffent molds for the different color sets.  I loved the diorama that Hasbro had at Wizard World so I needed quite a few of the these to make my own smaller version.  Articualtion would have been nice but I'll take these guys over nothing at all.

Nice find Jadesfire.

I found a yellow set the other day too; all I can say is this set is awesome too!  Wow!!

How many Jedi sets does everyone have?  I've got two of them now, and am going to customize one set.  I think that I'll pop off the head off the blue Twilek and make him another Nikto or something...

I'm getting paranoid about availability of all these. I've had spotty luck finding them in Southern California - would be interesting to see what people have found in summary since the first sets. This is what I've found to date:

1 Clean set
2 Blue set
2 Yellow set

That is IT, and I've been very diligent in my search 'round here. Its killing us here because there's a mass of launchers everywhere, meaning that demand for clones isn't being met, but they've been shipping plenty of the assortments. How is it everywhere else?

I've been able to get the white and blue sets the easiest.  I only found 2 of the green sets (my favorite so far), and neither of the yellow or red sets yet.

I've had some luck finding these myself (or with the help of my wife), or I've gotten some in trades.  Here's my list of findings...

4 - White Clone Troopers
2 - Blue Clone Troopers (both thru trades)
2 - Green Clone Troopers (one thru trades)
1 - Yellow Clone Troopers (thru a trade)
0 - Red Clone Troopers

I got some Yellow sets the other day in a surprise find...

I have to say that, if it weren't for the "Ultimate Articulation" Clone I'd have a highly negative opinion of these.  For $10, the figures are very "cheap" so the real value is kinda relative.

I'd say you're paying slightly more than you should for this kinda quality though.  

Still, they're neat for what they are in one way...  I just sort of hope that articulated Clone comes in multiple colors because I'd hate for all my non-coms and officers to be these pre-posed "plastic army men" type figures.

Damned if the one guys hand didn't break too.  First figure I've ever had break just trying to loosen up the joint.  Oh well, no big loss since he's not capable of doing much else but point his gun anyway.

The one neat thing I found is the waist (2 points) articualtion.  That was unique, if sorta pointless.  Wonder if that ultra articulated clone has that though?  It has the same head articulation I can see in the prototype photos.

Well I should be picking up the new deluxe case from EE tomorrow morning, and I think that has the red prone clone in it. Its sounding more and more like I need to get more active in trading to fill in holes.

If I could find some more, I certainly would! I have this goal of one day, sometime in the future, setting up a nice little workbench where I can customize and paint figures. Ah, to dream...

Customizing is a lot of fun and is one of my favorite things about the hobby (especially making dioramas).  If you ever get into it, I hope you post some of it for all of us to see. :)

Whoa, I found 3 more of the all-WHITE Clone 3-pks yesterday at a Target.  It looks like they are shipping again, this time with Durge Swoops.  Anyone else find more of these shipping?

Chewie, I have noticed a lot of Separatist Droid Army 3-packs surfacing by me, but I haven't seen a single Clone Trooper 3-pack since they first came out.
