I think I'm going to puke! It's the return of the silver figures just painted black instead!  I guess I can skip this one since I can aim a spray can at a stromtrooper just as well as hasbro.

the downside to that is A) the packaging isnt as cool, and B) you have to find a stormtrooper.

True, but at least these troopers have actually appeared in something Star Wars related such as the comics.  Whereas the silver ones were a complete gimmick alltogether.  But yeah, it would be an easy custom even for myself.

It's a bazillion times better than that silver/purple abortion we got from swshop.com last year! :o

I like it. To top if off they made it with the SA mold ;D. Wonder what the purchase limit is going to be at the Con. Hopefully it's at least 2 per person.

You know, I never liked EU and now that I'm being beaten over the head with it with these lame rehashes, "hate" isn't too harsh of a word to use about my feelings now. I hate EU.

I like this one - much better than the silver repaints that really made no sense.  This one has material based off of it.  Would rather see it in stores but this is fine by me.

And I forgot to mention that not only do I hate EU and think this figure is dumb, but I will be buying two of these! I guess you win, Hasbro.

Well I'm gonna see about getting a few. 

I can hear PMundheim thinking like me in that he'll want a "team".  But probably can't justify buying a whole platoon. ;)

I'd like 4 if I can get them...  one if that is all I can get though I guess.

Ok that's the VOTC Stormtrooper being re-used for a comic con exclusive, so when do we get a regular re-release of the VOTC Stormie? Blah never, ****** Hasbro!!!

I'll get one of these guys if its not too pricey, OT EU fig? Hell yeahs!

I hope I'll get one of these- I have no chance of going to Comic-Con but might get one online or something. I like that they used the VOTC sculpt, they didn't cheap out!
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

How come the figure in the bubble doesn't have the blue body glove like the picture on the back of the card? Blue looks so much cooler than all black.

Exactly....I don't need a whole "platoon" or even a "squad" of these guys, but a 4 man LRRP team would be cool....

I usually don't go for exclusives (I've bought tons, but only own 1 or 2) but I think this is one I really want to have a couple of.

Heck it is the VOTC mold again...that in and of itself deserves at least one!!  I'll try for 4-6 though.  Probably go broke doing it.  Hopefully I can find a kind sole to snag me one or two.
