Has anyone found the chase Anakin or Grievous? Anyone willing to sell me them for retail?  ;D

Alright, I secured my blue clone, red ARC and white Grievous.  If anyone wants to trade, I have a spare red ARC for Anakin's variant.  I'd also up the ante since Anakin seems less common.

I've got some spare red ARC's if anyone has either of the other Clone Troopers available for trade.  My Clone Wars case packed out alright though.  Here's what I got in my case:

4 x ARC Trooper (RED)
4 x Yoda
3 x Snowbunny Padme
3 x Obi-Wan in Clone Armor
2 x Anakin Skywalker
2 x General Grievous (blue)
1 x Anakin Skywalker variant
1 x General Grievous variant

No white Clones?  I just assumed they were the "regular" figure for the series and the 2 ARC's were the chases.

Your assumption might still stand Jesse.  At the comic shop where I got mine, there were two red ARCs and two white clones and nothing else in the box.  Nick's case is pretty damn amazing.  I know another store where they open their stuff to sell the chase on ebay and it was all white clones and no chase Anakin or Grievous. 

I think the only thing that can be said for sure is that Anakin is one in four boxes.

Really?  I wasn't sure if it was quite so amazing.  I guess the question is whether or not the red ARC Trooper is the standard Clone or not.  I'm just hoping that I can trade those off for the other two Clone Troopers.

The Padme is very cool.  Especially since I was such a dope and didn't get the Clone Wars maquette.  But assembly-wise it doesn't fit together very well.  The joints aren't quite right.

I've yet to order these, but noticed Brian's Toys has a set of 8 including the 3 troopers.  That actually seems like a reasonable price.

Um, I paid $6 CAD for each of mine and then $9.99 for the blue ARC (plus $4 shipping though half that was for the Grievous variant too).  Yeah, it's not too bad at all really.

Talk about your lack of attention to detail :o

Finally got through everything I needed to today and pulled my series 7 bustups out of the box.  I ended up buying a complete set, plus some extra clones and an extra Anakin and Grievous.  When I popped them open in the car, the Grievous figures didn't look any different, but they were.  LOL.  I pulled two red ARCs and a Grievous variant from the same box.  Moron wasn't paying attention (me).  So all I need now is to find an Anakin, which I know exists, but I still haven't seen a picture of.

Managed to score some more ARC Troopers today.  Got 3 blue ARC's, but I still can't get that white Clone Trooper.  Weird.

Nick I've got a couple of extra white troopers if you end up needing any.  Wish I had your problems.  LOL.

I took a trip to Frank's this last weekend and picked up my first CW bust up. There was only one dealer who had an Anakin and Yoda in stock. I picked up the Anakin for $6 and ended up pulling the variant ;D.

This series seems to have caught A LOT of collectors attention. All of the online sites have sold out of their cases pretty quickly. Looks like Ebay may be the last chance to get these before they disappear.
