WOW! I did nt know how popular these things have become. Me and my friend staked out TOy"s we figured out what day they were going to be shipped, we went their the night before the manager on duty would not let us get on that night even though they have them in the store. SO we went back the next morning and picked up 3 sets each. Now that I think about I think I saw them there only one other time.

Still not sure what everyone likes about this.  Saw a few lying around yesterday at TRU.  Scanned one and they were still full price.  This pack is a bunch of inadequately articulated, poorly sculpted, sloppily painted throwbacks from 2002.  Fordo's guns, his trademark, are wrong.  Really wrong.

Why anyone even wants this is beyond me.  It's a half-assed piece of junk.  Especially at that price.

You're right, they suck...big time.  But they are new clones.

The fact that they are clones puts this set in a high category. The fact that the set is an exclusive puts it in a high category still, so here is a built in mystique to a certain crowd whose numbers are enough to make this piece a pain in the but to get. :(

Now here's an ARC trooper:

Damn right! Only thing that stinks is that he comes with Obi-Wan. Hopefully that ARC will be packed on his own card in 2008 or 2009.
