Vague thread-title gets a vague answer:

"Yes"

Right, so at any rate, Commander Cody, Scorch, and the Utapau Grunt are all out right now.  Cody has just started being found at Target and Walmart, and Scorch and the Utapau Grunt are out right now almost everywhere.

Thanks. ;)

And with that advice I also suggest looking into your local area's finds thread here at Jedi Defender... 

Question's been answered though, so get thee to the Clones and buy...  Not that finding them has been easy or anything, but yeah, there's stuff out to be found.

it's easy (for me)

EDITED (since it's obviously not easy for everyone and ..without putting the for me in there it makes it look like it easy everywhere, which it isn't) for clarity

Define almost anywhere.  I would actually say almost nowhere :P

Since this thread was taking a turn for the worse, I chopped out some stuff that wasn't really needed.

It's one thing to debate how easy it is for some to find stuff while others in smaller towns struggle, but let's keep it nice and clean (personal attacks not required).  Thanks!

I'm noticing that once figures get to be more common people start caring less...
For instance....my area has had Geo since mid-Feb...I think everyone(in my area) has a U. clone because THIS happened here recently. Last week our WM's got the cody wave for first time. I went to one store and needed the Coruscant wave stocked--
I noticed all 4 cases had been opened and all 4 cody's(1 per case) were gone. However, the u. clones(2 per case) were all still there?! That's 8 total clones..naturally I bought them for other folks...(would never leave a desired fig  for scalping chance). I remember that one day I went into a WM and there was 10 shocktroopers on the pegs it was at 6 PM- I asked the lady and she told me they put those out last nite!This after those shocks had already been out for a month.

I was holding hope that as stores would start stocking more often so that disgruntled people will be finding these clones more and buying  them..driving the scalpers prices down forcing them to stop..it COULD happen still..here's to holding out hope... :-\

May as well stick this here...

Have we definitely resolved any of the numerous figures vs movie questions we had back when ROTS debuted?

-Are there any plain, white troopers seen in the movie?

-Any with the antennas on their backs? I'm wondering if this wasn't a discarded idea that was changed too late for Hasbro to catch up, ala Palpatine with blue saber? I know Lucas ditched an idea of having the clones eyes turn red when they were signaled with Order 66. Maybe this was going to be in the flick, but got ditched...?

-Is an Utapau "Shadow Trooper" ever actually seen, or is this Hasbro's own creation?

-Was the "blue Bacara" completely fabricated?

Yes, at the gunning stations on the Republic cruisers at the beginning of the movie, as well as dead white clones on the floor of the Jedi Temple after the 501st came through.  We previously thought that the clones on Coruscant when Tarrful landed were white, but we later learned that they have grey paint on their armor, and are Commander Gree's clones, before they suited up into their BARC scout armor on Kashyyyk. 

The clones on the gunship shot of Yoda and Mace talking may be white as well.

I don't believe there were any with antennas on their backs, but I'm not 100% sure.

Nope, and nope.
