I've got 8 of these now, so I didn't go too ape**** yet.  When the new and improved Elite Corps clone does come out in a year or two or whenever it is, these guys will be the dead ones littering the beaches of Kashyyyk in the future diorama that I will undoubtedly build (considering I have close to 100 Preview Wookiees, top 10 figure all time!)

I received my first of these today. I like it.

I wish I could find more of these at retail, since I'd like to get about two more (I'll have a total of three by the end of this week) since I'm sure that when Hasbro decides to do a proper version, it will be in a Battle Pack similar to the Skirmish in the Senate pack and the Shocktrooper.

They're not big on putting newly sculpted figures in battle packs.  It's usually reissues and repaints.  The Skirmish in the Senate Battle packs also did not have anything new about that SA clone #41, it was just repainted.

What we need in a new Elite Corps clone is proper boots, proper helmet, and all the goodies on the utility belt.  It's going to require a massive amount of sculpting, which makes me believe it's going to be a single carded figure.

Which make me believe this is as good as it will get.

You're too picky.

Edit:  And delete your sig - everytime I read it, I get that stupid song in my head.

I bought 3 of these guys and unless they want to make it more accurate, I'm done.

I got 2 more.

The appeal of a specialist squad of OT Troopers is growing on me so this figure grew on me...  I shoulda bought more of the others but didn't want to spend $7.  I dunno, the price really kills army building for me these days.  I want more engineers, they rock, and more AOTC Sergeants too, but just can't stand parting with the cash for more.

Appo I'd buy more of, but he's long gone any time I find "new" figures it seems.

I found a lone Elite Corps trooper at TRU this weekend, and happily picked it up.  I wouldn't mind getting another Appo or two, but I haven't seen one since the one I picked up early in the morning at Target a few weeks ago.  Aside from any other extras I might see (Elite Corps or Appo), I'm ready for the 30 AC stuff.

I just recieved the two of these guys that I bought. I'm waiting for the accurate BARC troopers, but these make awesome specialty Biker Scouts like you guys have already said. This guy's a winner in my book.

FINALLY, I found one of these yesterday and i'm liking it more every minute. I'm not a PT or Clone guy but the look of this is fantastic. The Biker Scout was always one of my favorite troopers so this is very cool...

Found the last ones I need for these guys today. My grand total is 17. 8 for Gree's Squad, 9 for an OT special teams squad.
