30AC Legends AOTC Clone... You Buyin'?
« on: June 15, 2007, 09:01 PM »
I came across my first smattering of the new Legends assortment this evening while on a trip to Wal-Mart.  I nabbed a couple AOTC Clones since that's a figure that has never really been at retail in good numbers, or at good prices...  Not that $7.10 is a good price, but it beats the piss out of trying to get them in the 4-packs in anything but a case.

I saw a handful, though the red clone was the only figure that was really uncommon (well, and the battledroids too I guess, as there was only one of each of those).  They had 3 of the AOTC Clones though so I nabbed them.

Anyone else looking forward to this one?  I'm real happy at another crack at this figure...  Really, it's a first crack since I never did see SA E2 style clones at retail ever.

You bet. I think I only saw the E2 clone once in stores back in '03 so I'll be picking up several. It's funny that they produced so few plain white E2 clones (which actually had screen time) and produce so many all white E3 Clones which never had any real on screen representation, let alone the having the antenna accessory.

I'll be grabbing every version of E2 Clone I see.

Well Jesse should know this from my post in our local section..

I'm hoping to get 40 of them. Then finally I think my AOTC Clone army (grunts) will be complete. I'll only need a handful of the Blue Lt. when it comes out and I'm not buying the yellow, red, or green when they come out. (Jesse let me know if you are looking for those officers and I'll gladly pick some up for you.)

I do hope this particular clone keeps shipping in refresh cases. It was rarely seen on the pegs in this sculpt on card. And like Jesse said, unless you bought a case of them it wasn't worth it to buy a pack of 4 from Entertainment Earth.

Between the EE 4-packs, the two dozen evolutions packs, the Clone Wars versions, and the extras I've picked up over the years, I've got quite the pack of these already.

Combine that with the fact that right now in stores we have Airborne Troopers, Galactic Marines, Death Star Troopers, Rebel Honor Guards, SA Stormtroopers, Vintage Snowtroopers, McQuarrie concept Stormtroopers, ROTS Clones, Shocktroopers, and even some left over Green AOTC clones from the Saga assortment...  I'm not in a huge hurry to buy more of these.


That said, I'll probably pick up a few more.

I am really glad these guys are out again, and with better and whiter plastic. That said, I have three so far and I am aiming for a total of thirty by the end of the year.

I love me some SA AOTC clones.  When I see them, I attack the peg that bears them.

7 and counting.

I only have one and plan on picking up just a few more.  I also think it's kinda weird that we didn't get "attacked by clones" until only after Sith came out.   ::)

So when does this guy start shipping in his EE colors?

I pretty much had a full platoon of 36 (well, 32 white clones and 4 sergeants) by the time the Legeneds wave hit. I did pick up one to open, but that's it for me.

Got one so far... gotta see how many other whites I have before picking up more (but they ain't SA, so it's tempting).
