Not a lot of fun army building Holo Leias though...

I don't think the price will go anywhere but up.

Quasi-related news, the Vader's Gold titanium Tie Fighter is gone now too.  I checked a couple of times to see if the 501st came back on line and the answer is no.

I missed out on the SDCC 501st Trooper as well unfortunately.  I'd hoped they'd be abundant enough to nab a couple, much less one...  Now I'm bumming a bit.  :(

I missed it too...not too upset though.  I was snagging mine to make sure I could help buddies out anyway and mabye keep one.

I'm sure if you pop his helmet off, he is Jango Fetish anyway.

I picked up mine at the con. Normally, I would say it's crappy given that they're basically $7 figures with a flag, stand, sticker and neat packaging for $15, but, it is a Stormtrooper.

I got my 501st in the mail today!   (thanks Matt  :))

Overall, I like this figure. 

Like JJ said previously, a cool "front line" trooper to place in front of a group of stormies.  Sure, the banner is in English, not aurebesh, but I can overlook that little detail. 

I have no plans to army build him, but I'm glad I got one to open up.

I don't know why somethings just go over my head, but Darth Bonk raised a good point. Why is the text on the flag in English? ???

For display purposes, I may black one of them out.

I got an e-mail today from HTS.com that my 501st Stormtrooper has been shipped.  I placed an order when they were available, but was told it would be delayed, so I thought maybe they were out of stock.  Then today there was confirmation - so hopefully others will be receiving theirs as well.
