I wanted to ask that too but he is toofar away from me.  At 29.99 I pass but that $5 difference does it for me.  I'll pick one up for 25 after all the "regular" tac ops suck butt.

I just opened the set I bought this weekend. I had one Clone with a bad right hand, due to the damn gun and arm being forced too far down by the rubber band. The Clone that's packaged to Anakin's right has a warped leg due to the way he was packaged. Of course, I had no issues with the Pilot or Anakin. I do believe this is the seventh time I've purchased this mold.  :P

This is not the type of stuff that impresses me, especially for thirty bones. Hopefully the Shocktroopers in the Skirmish set are a little more wisely packed.

Good luck. The hands and wrists get really bent out of shape in that box. They're really gone quite insane with the rubber banding and binding of figures into the trays. They've also given the shocktroopers some really funky hands that barely hold the weapons. >:( They don't grip nearly as tightly as the #6 shocktrooper or the Utapau clone.

Well, ain't that a sumbitch. I think I'll just stick with one set as I planned to earlier.

Usually warping from packaging can be reversed with some hot water...  plastic generally takes its original shape well if you heat it some.  Run a little hot water, hold the figure under it and gently bend the pieces back...  Should work.

Scored one this morning.  This one was $26.99.  The pricing on these things is just all over the place.  ::)

I don't know if I can justify paying $30 for three Tac Ops troopers - I have no need for the other figures...

At $26 I may try getting one.  3 more Tact. Ops and a Pilot...  I can deal with that.

Anakin sucks but what are ya gonna do?   :-\

****, don't tell me they're gonna have a sale. It'd cost me $3 in gas just to get out there again for a price adjustment.  ::)

These are still flying off the shelf in my neck of the woods. Thankfully, Ray's hooking me up with the final set I wanted.

I never managed to find one of these (we don't have K-Marts near here)... but I'm looking for ONE of the Tac-Ops clone just to have that variation on the shelves...

If anyone bought a whole bunch and is interested in trading or selling one, please PM me!   :-*
