Just don't tell the wife...  (Normally, she's VERY understanding about my addiction, but adding more to the list could be trouble!  :o

As we always tell the guys who say this, just point her to Watto's and the 2004 Collector's Challenge thread next time she gets on your case about spending a few bucks. Look at Brent's list, and my list, and Adam's list. She'll lay off, unless you belong up there on that list as well  ;D

Exclusive to shopafx?  These are not the chase pieces from that series?

Exclusive to them it says, limited to 5000

I want to say the exclusives for this line are beyond lame.  Hey lets make clear versions of the regular versions...LAME

Yup, but the completeist in me is crapping his drawers right now.  What to do with this?

I checked on these too. They are free if you purchase a set of series 2 from them, or it looks like they are also available for sale. $10.99 each.

I may just order my set from them then to get this for free.

Ah, that will work.  $10.99 for a set is dirt cheap.  Jim, shall I order you a set of 2 or are you going to get the set from these guys anyway?

Well, I didn't check their price for a set of 6 yet, but I'll probably go that route to get the freebie and I could just order an extra 2-pack for you and have it all shipped together to save on shipping.

OK, upon further research, it doesn't look like they are selling a set of 6. Its a pack of 12 but they list it as guaranteeing you a full set of 6 with 2 extra stormies, Vaders and Mauls. I'll probably still go this route.

Well, lmk what you're going to do.  I'll probably pick up two sets of the exclusives.

Crap.  I'll have to think about it then.  I already ordered a ****load of the Stormtroopers from SWS.com with that exclusive deal thing they had going a while back where you could get all 8 versions at once.

This is apparently going to be an ongoing thing with the clear/holo crap.  Lame indeed.   ::)

Saw this, ordered mine this morning.

It actually comes to something like $17 and change with Shipping.  Not too bad I guess. Still a fairly low pricepoint for an "exclusive".

Plus, it's two of the franchises hottest badies!!!!!!  Since I have both the clear sets from San Diego and both Leia variants, looks like I have to get these too.

Don;t know which one I should use    ;^)   or :^(

Yeah, I ordered those stormtroopers too - figured 3 of the 3-packs would give me all of the possible poses. 

Stormtrooper Bust-Ups

But do I really need more stormtroopers just to get the exclusives?  We'll see.

I'm still scratching my head on this clear exclusive Crap though...I mean, who really needs Glow in the Dark Luke Skywalker?  Is this after his trip to the Galactic Taco Bell?  The holo Sith make a little more sense since they were seen in Holo form in the movie...but still...its stupid
