Am I the only one not excited about this?
Its just a sad grab at cash for me and I just dont like it, why put this out when they could have just put out the Votc stormie on a regular card??
That would fly out the door, this is still a 50/50 thing in my mind, some will want it I think most would pass cept for the completists.
Oh well its extra cash in my wallet for something else.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

I like the figure itself and the packaging.  I am not just not going to be happy that it will most likely be  $14.99 only available at SDCC or $15.99 plus $6.50 for shipping at SWShop.com.  That is not much exagerating on my part either.  If it is I won't buy it.  I will just buy a couple of those Heroes and Villains white Clonetroopers and paint them black.

You are not.  This figure does nothing for me.  I will live without it.
You are never alone when there's a clone.

I kinda like the figure. It looks pretty nifty, and I see it as really different from the silver figures or crappy Target/SWShop covert clones, since there's legitimate EU to back it up instead of a paintjob concocted to sell a "special" figure.

If it was in normal stores for $7 I'd buy it. But to me it isn't worth all the exclusives hassle and the inevitably inflated price.

Yes, it's an easy figure to customize but the exclusivity factor and the fact that LF allowed Hasbro to finally do a black stormtrooper makes it cool.

Is it worth $15?  Probably not - but Hasbro will sell a ****load at the show and online...

Capitalism at it's finest my friends.

Speaking of capitalism, keep an eye out on ebay the day the show starts...

I could see customizing some too, but to be honest the VOTC Stormtrooper is too expensive for me to try and get a few up just for a custom.  I just want two of this figure; no more, no less.   :)

VOTC Stormies though... I wish I had a hundred.

 :P

They won't get me! I'm making an entrance at the CC myself and getting as many as I can. Found out a trick to get more than you're allowed per day with last years' exclusive.

OK, I'll bite.  What's the trick?  Kneecap the guy at the SWS.com booth?
