 :(

I got my two 4-packs from SWShop....not so good news.

No Gree....

My BD set had:
501st with short blaster
White Clone with short blaster
Utapa Clone with rifle
Coruscant Clone with rifle

And to make it even worse.....my clean 4-pack is the exact same 4 clones:
501st with short blaster
White Clone with short blaster
Utapa Clone with rifle
Coruscant Clone with rifle

These will go up for trade or sale. Will actualy eat the shipping cost and sell each 4-pack for $20 shipped.

I was under the impression that they are all done that way, but you should be able to swap the arms to change the poses.

I know this is going to be a stretch, but I'll ask anyway.  Does anyone have an extra Dengar gun?  I managed to lose mine and he looks stupid with his empty hands.   :(

Never mind, I found it.   :)

I got one of those great Christmas Eve deliveries of my case of the Hoth wave. out of 18, it had 2 chases (Wampa and Luke). I will not be laying down the cash to get the others, but I guess I'm glad to have a couple, particularly the Wampa.
I was slow on the uptake regarding the clone sets from SW shop, and all they have left are BD. I ordered two sets, in case I find someone with an extra clean set someday.

Bob Dylan,  check Entertainment Earth....they got the clean 4-packs in stock.

Jessevader08, you only get one set of arms for each clone trooper in your 4-pack.  So you can only display him in one pose.  But if you buy extra 4-packs, you might get lucky and get the other 4-pack to come with the different arms.

For example....you buy a Battle Damaged 4-pack....and you get in it:
501st with short blaster
White Clone with short blaster
Utapa Clone with rifle
Coruscant Clone with rifle

Then another 4-pack might come with the opposite version of each of those.....like.....
501st with rifle
White Clone with rifle
Utapa Clone with short blaster
Coruscant Clone with short blaster

I didn't have any luck.....I got no Gree and my BD and clean 4-packs had the same dang arm combinations.

(This bummed me out and I sold both 4-packs)...not sure if I will buy them again.

Thanks for the clarification.  I ordered 2 sets of each under the assumption that there would be no problem swapping arms.  It looks like I may be a bit disappointed.  :-\

I'll have to look into that...

On another note, it looks like there are 2 Gree chases, as shown at that other site.

Here's hoping that my 4-packs pay off...

Interesting picture that is.  I saw it a couple of days ago on ebay in an auction.  I'm wondering if RS pilfered the photo or the seller pilfered the photo from RS because it's identical. 

Tell me the pic in this auction isn't awfully familiar looking

You aren't seeing things, 'bug.  The auction you have linked is by one of Scum's new sponsors - "Mundy Enterprises".

It looks to me like he gave RS the picture so they would pimp his auction on the front page...  and from the looks of it he sent them a few other pics too - Hoth Wave bust-ups and more.

I lucked out and found a Clone 4pk for sale which included Gree at a local collectables show. The seller had opened up all the sets in his case and came out with two Gree. He was selling each 4pk w/ Gree for $30.

Nice find! I received my battle damaged packs from SWshop Saturday. One had the orange clone in the window, the other blue. I did hit a gree, it was in the box with the orange clone showing. I guess I hit the jackpot, since I got both versions of the arms between the two as well. I know griping when finding a chase is kind of lame, but it does leave me one clone short of a set. At least with the blackhole stormtroopers they were a bonus, and you still got 3 regular stormies.

Happy New Year everyone- and thank you the Jedidefender staff for keeping such a great site going!!

Which one are you missing?? I'll gladly send it to you in trade for the Gree  :P
