Look at the card back - "This stormtrooper figure was created especially for the Star Wars online shop".  Was last year's SDCC figure (which was who btw?) sold online afterwards?

Yes, Holo Leias were sold at SWShop.com after SDCC was over last year.

Thanks Jeff.  Shows how much the holo Leia impressed me, I totally forgot it was released.

I like this one though.

I believe you were able to "preorder" the Holo Leia from the Fan club and pick it up at SDCC, and then they were sold after the con online.

I kind of like this one too, hopefully it will be available online at SWShop or elsewhere.  If not, I'm going to have to beg for some help from someone :P.  Hopefully it isn't crazy expensive, kind of a neat exclusive though otherwise.

Yeah, I'm in on this too.  Sadly I want at least five and probably closer to 10.  The quit-army-building schtick isn't working very well :-\

Oh, and the paranoid side of me says that's just a marginally clever custom.  Left arm is twisted oddly and the lower torso dimensions are off.  That and it's not called a blackhole stormtrooper.  If it's being sold on SWS.com why doesn't it have the same name as the Gentle Giant bustup that it's so clearly modelled after?

Wow, this figure is too cool to waste on the SDCC!

 8)

I hope I can get my hands on at least one.

BTW - isn't the black stormtrooper the same as the "Blackhole Stormtrooper?"

Very nice.  This is a pretty cool surprise.  I'd probably get 4 of these if possible.

No, but very similar.  Gentle Giant's black stormtrooper Bust-Ups were based on that design with the white/silver lenses and a couple of minor details changed.   So Hasbro could release a different one with a different package and a different name and it would, technically, be a different figure.

So "just different enough to make you mad."  Or "close enough."  I like the former.
