Wow, a boring figure that'll be packed with a figure that's being re-packed here later this year.  ::)

LOL, wait Chewie, is that going to be a pass for you?  It'll be nice to have a set, but I won't worry too much if I don't.  May be it'll be available at retail after the con, and it'll be only $10 like the Order 66 2-packs.  The $10 price tag is probably wishful thinking though.

I heard someone suggest it could be a SWshop exclusive. Seems logical if this came to be.

Give credit to Lucas for being a merchandising genius.  He made his fortune by securing the merchandising to Star Wars ages ago and the legacy continues on with all the cloneskittleshadowranktroopers coming out now.  ::)

I actually like it but won't buy it.  I would just rather spend SW money on something else is all.

From a practical point of view, these figures are pretty silly.  Red highlights on armour for soldiers' that are supposed to be working in the cover of night?  At least, to me that would be the point of calling these clones Shadow Troopers.  Bright  highlights don't really make a lot of sense.

But from an asthetic point of view, I kinda like them, dammit.  The red just looks neat to contrast against the black and grey. 

I won't pay a high premium for them, but I would be interested in tracking them down at some point.

I'd pay $15 for the set. Same price as two figs anyway. And we'll be getting the regular shadow clone with the last Legends line anyway, so that price makes sense.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

Solid black wouldve been WAY better than this awful coloring. I don't think Troopers should be multiple colors, just doest look right..especially when they start looking like Industrial and Construction signs.

I hope this is a starwarsshop aftercon exlusive. I kind of like them.  I don't know I am still not cloned out.  Some thing must be wrong with me.

You bet.  There's just only so much display space that I have, and because of that, I don't really get into gimmicks like this... plus, I really don't like the design or even the concept.  Especially seeing one in the kama - that's just getting out of hand.

This is as easy to pass on as the Target Kashyyk walkers BP. This should do as well as the Shadow Scout which is still rotting on SWS as we speak. I am honestly happy to walk away from items now. I really use to take anything given but no more. I am done with goofy clones. I just want core ones seen in film or at the very least closer to realistic movie appeal like the Hoth Speeder Bikes.

Leave the Shadows in the dark and put a bullet in this concept. It's over already.......

Finally, some 'Shadow' troops!  I've been waiting for this to come true for what seems like an eternity.

Put me down for 1,000 of those 2-packs.

I have a hard time believing this will be only $10 if it is ever released in the US. The Shadow Stormtrooper from Star Wars Shop was like 13 dollars, and the concept Greivous was 16. This set, IF released here in the states, will probably be $20 easy.

Or $32 (applying SWS logic).
