Looks cool, however it being an overseas exclusive it'll be pricey for those of us who want it.
I remember my dream now.

Great...more "shadow" troopers...

You know, Hasbro should apply the "shadow" concept with other types of troopers, only in reverse.  For instance, instead of "shadow" Death Star Troopers (which wouldn't work 'cuz they're already black), Hasbro should make "sunshine" Death Star Troopers: DST's painted white.  This idea would work with Death Star Gunners, TIE-Pilots, etc.  And believe me, they would sell.....

Well, I for one would like to get this set.

I hope it's available after the con at retail. Exclusive or not, so long as it comes to the states.

I can't help but think that Star Wars Shop will be carrying this item after the convention.

I'm in for two or three depending on the price. If they are $10 then definitely I'll order three. Anything more than that, and my limit is 2.

I knew it was only a matter of time before they made a Clone Commander in the Shadow Trooper scheme.

I like that idea, and I would buy many of them ::). What will Hasblow not do, I wonder?

I'd pick up a set if I could get a hold of one inexpensively.

I could take it or leave it.  Won't be bummed if it never comes our way.

I don't need, it but I would maybe get one if it came here. They look pretty cool, as much as I hate that shadow concept.

The millions and millions of clone variants crapped out by hasbro, half of which are garbage.
