I agree with what Jared mentioned in his post, why doesn't Hasbro just make the SA Stormtrooper available at retail, instead of continually using it for these repainted exclusives that cost $15 or more? I know I'd really like to build up an army of SA Stormies (more than the 2 that I have), and I'm sure there are plenty of others out there that would too. Kids too for that matter. It boggles my mind how popular Stormtroopers (or most/any troops in general) are, and yet they are never released in various assortments anymore. Sure, we see some clones now - which is great - but aside from a few commtechs that were scattered out in the OTC line, we hardly ever see basic Stormies on the pegs anymore. They should pretty much always be out there I think.
Anyways - back on topic - I have to admit I do kind of want one of these if it turns out to be true. I'm going to have to rely on help, or the SWShop for both this and the "Shadow" Stormtrooper. I just want one of each, and I hate paying $15 for them, but I do kind of like them.
