Think of me come time Rob, and I'll probably pick up some of your extra stuff.  Just PM me.  Or you may want to see if Paul will split the troopers with you first actually.

Looks like Jeff and I may have an arrangement - I'll check back with you if that doesn't work out, but it's a pretty simple thing so it should be fine.

I'll admit, incinerator troopers; catchy. I may pick up the Palpatine set since I kind of like those troopers and the Palpatine is the best to date.

If these are $10.00 each, I'm sure I'll get 3-4 of each set.  If $15.00, then 2 of each.

Heh, I just thought of this. The red and white troopers are Incinerator Troopers, right?

So, does that make them the "IT" department for the Empire...

will these be arriving before X-mas? I'm already eating Ramen for the rest of the week.

Incinerator Troopers?  So what, they guard Vader's super duper garbage can?  ::)

Bah, I'm still pissed they're repainting Stormtroopers.

They did a ****** job outside the trash compactor I guess.

manglord, I really doubt these arrive before X-Mas or anytime soon...  Being Force Unleashed, they're probably a ways off.  That's not to say that stranger things haven't happened, but I just doubt it.

Maybe these will be available on the release date of Force Unleashed? Didn't all the other WM sets get released on a specific SW DVD release date?
I remember my dream now.

I would assume so...  I believe April was the game's pushed back release date?  I was figuring most of the rest of the "multi-media blitz" would come around that time.

I thought it was pushed to February?
I like the Palpy/Shadow set. I never bought the Evo set, because I thought Maul was a waste, Dooku wasn't any better than the ROTS version, and Palpy's robe was too funky.
I'm sure I'll buy both, and since I usually collect 4 of each trooper, I'll have an extra Vader (or 2) and at least one Palp to trade.  :D

February is when the first wave of '08 is supposed to hit, so April seems logical.

I'd think they might release these right when the game comes out; similar to the DVD sets.

Ok, according to Amazon.com, and a few gaming sites, the TFU game hits April 8th. I'd guess these will start hitting the last week of March, since Walmart rarely holds things for promotions. I know I found the 3 OT DVD sets before the release for both the singles DVDs and the box set a few years earlier.
