SDCC Shadow Scout with Speederbike
« on: June 26, 2007, 09:24 PM »
If you are attending SDCC, you can now pre-order for pick-up at the show.  :)



Sounds like pre-orders for the rest of us non-attendees will go up at the end of the show...

I'm hoping this - and the other exclusives - are relatively easy for us to pick up online after the show.  I kind of dig this, even if it is EU-ish, but it just looks cool though.  I see the price is $25 though according to the SWShop preorder, and that seems a little steep.  Not that I'm surprised, especially being an exclusive, but when we got that Saleucami BP at WM earlier this year for $20, it seems kind of high.

25 bucks is high. No squad for me.

Also... the "T" bar?  ???

25 is a lot. These exclusive keep getting more expensive all the time. I will get just one though.

One is enough for me... if I can get one after the show that is.

$25? That's a big "hell no" from me on this. It'd be worth it if they had a new Speeder Bike though.

I'm leaning towards saying no on this one.  $25 is just too much.

For $25 a piece I will have to settle for a "CHiPs" 2 man team...

$25 each, huh?  I think I might limit myself to two.

If you don't wanna pay $25 you can always go for this price.  ::)

25.00 is what i was expecting. I will pick one up, as long as they make them available after the show.

This is an easy pass for me.  Even if it was half the price and in stores, I still might not get it.  The whole "Shadow" concept for a lot of the troops to me is just a cheap gimmick.

I'll see if I can manage to get a couple of just the scout loose for my growing Empire, but the bike repaint really sucks. I wanted a new one too.

Well at $25 and an old Speederbike mold, a big pass for me. I like the look of the Scout, but I can't see spending $25 for the Scout as the Speederbike is junk. Will Hasbro ever learn that we don't like old POTF2 molds in place of the new and better versions they already have? Come on Hasbro ::), replace you marketing team or something.

I might have picked one up if it had the new Speederbike. I guess if I want a Shadow Scout, I'll just repaint one of the Elites or Scouts that are coming.

I do agree with Chewie on the "cheap gimmick" thing though. Are the running out of ideas and colors for the clones that they have to add colors to the OT troopers? Again what is the deal? I never knew they had Scouts in different colors as the Stormtroopers or Blackhole Troopers ::). I don't get into the comics, bucause most is blown what out of context. The Empire I think would frown on this type of individualism in there troopers. Look at the 501st with the void of color in OT. That is just my opinion.

Wasn't everybody complaining in the McQuarrie R2/3PO & Luke thread that all exclusives should be repaints and not all new sculpts??  Well this is a repaint and I'm eagerly waiting to get my mitts on it.  The Scout has always been my favorite trooper since I was a kid, so I'm looking forward to an all black one.  We'll be getting a new speederbike soon enough so I don't blame Hasbro for giving it a final hoorah....at least I hope it's a final hoorah.
