Thanks for the tip.  Me and a buddy scored these at our local target on a lunch run.  I really like the Airborne trooper mold.

Cool, I see you're in Illinois.  I should check my Targets here in Iowa.

Nice set for $20, can't beat that pricing for four cool clones.

Mace is a good "hand me down" figure for the boy's stocking this X-Mas!

My friend called a couple stores in the area first.  One told us that the "street date" on these is 11/19.   We used the DCPI number to get them from the back.  Hopefully that helps!

I'll try to get a picture up tonight when I get home from work.  Boxed images ok?

I hope this is what you need. Good luck!

Here are some loose photos I took tonight:









There is a third clone trooper but I just didn't bother to put him in the picture.

Thanks Brent, I was going to post some boxed images, but I think these are much better.

I really like that Airborne Trooper.  I can't wait until next year's carded Utapau version.

Excellent pics Brent!  Can you give us a rundown on the articulation on the Airborne Trooper?

Here's the "mini-review" I posted over at Yak:

The Airborne trooper looks like a really cool mold.  I'm not sure what figure its based off of (Evo trooper perhaps?).  The mold seems pretty faithful to the Utuapau airbourne troopers. The paint apps on mine are pretty shoddy (around the shoulder ammo pack and belt).  The accessories are really nice (pouldren and pouch) including the hidden pistol.  The helmet looks great but it seems hard to get the helmet to completely fit over the clone head.  The plastic for the helmet seems more sturdy than the AT-TE gunner versions.  The rifle is very flimsy plastic.

The Regular clones look like Purple Shocktroopers with a Bacara paudlron.  I really like the way they look.

Mace is what you'd expect.  He does have the Anakin ROTS evo cloak as opposed to the other cloaks they've been packing in other figures.

Bottomline - the Airbourne trooper seems to be superarticulated with the exception of the one shoulder that has limited movement due to the ammo pack.
