I am sure someday they will offer it on StarWarsShop.com for $19.99.

Now that I found my Greedo POP, I've sent away for this stud.

Seeing it at the SW weekend does make my blood boil. I broke open 2 sets of these things (with no use for an extra Greedo, Han, or Luke) so that I could get a George to have open and to keep carded. Now if you are in Florida you can get two by paying slightly more per figure? And don't forget, they only have to pay the extra "postage" money for one.

I don't begrudge those who get the deal, I'm ticked at Hasbro for making such a hoop jumping pile of BS, and then circumventing it as they like.

For those that sent in keep an eye out.  My check cleared this week so hopefully I will see this figure within the next 10 days.

This may be true. After all, every Lucas made will not get mailed away for due to people who keep a sealed set and people unable to complete a set.

I know i'll be getting one George, but it would be really nice to have a second one to open. I doubt that anyone buys doubles of Han, Greedo, or Luke though, so there's no way I can get any extra POPs.  :(

Just need Greedo, Han, and Luke as extras. I know tons of people are gonna armybuild Tuskens and Bikers, just as I am, so I don't need any of those. Thanks anyways, if you were offering.  ;)

Check ebay I have been seeingcoupons for $2-$3. Its the cheapest way if you do not want to buy the figures. My third set was for customizing. My second sealed set is just that, sealed.

Galactic Hunter put up a nice preview of the LucasTrooper. According to the pics, it comes with the Commtech helmet. The Lucas head looks pretty good though. I still need to send in for mine.

"Commtech helmet."  I don't get that.  They didn't make any type of "So-and-so with removable Stormtrooper helmet" figure back then, did they?  So how can the helmet be recycled?  I think the only removable Stormtrooper helmets they've made until now were the ones included with the Han and Luke Stormtroopers back in the early days.  And Georgetrooper's helmet is definitely different from those.

Don't mean to be a ****head, but I've seen several others make that comment, and I don't understand how this is anything but a new sculpt.

I've not examined the photos enough to say one way or the other but I'm guessing what happened is whoever was tasked with this figure at Hasbro perhaps carved out a CT Trooper helmet to work as the removable helmet...  I dunno.

With it being basically an inferior sculpt (the commtech trooper that is, overall) with a helmet from dubious origins, I'm not particular if they did just hollow out a CT helmet and put it into production or if it's an all-new sculpt...  It's all meh to me.
