Yes, I actually would be interested in Ponds.  I never knew what his name was but yeah he pops up a few times in the series I believe.

A clone commander in the white uniform would be very cool but that's the weakest clone name I've ever seen.

Well since it's a TRU exclusive I will wait to pay their high price instead  ::)

Interesting.  He's got a 'TRU Exclusive' sticker on him, so that explains the "where".  I would guess he will be an in-store promo type figure for the Fall to kick off the new line and the Season 2 push maybe?

That makes the most sense.  It falls in line with what TRU did with the holo Grievous when the Clone Wars line launched last summer.

I was given a couple photos of Ponds loose with and without his brain bucket...  Kinda neat looking clear images to check out if you're interested in this figure.

Just as a heads up, our local TRU had two pegs full of Commander Ponds today @ $9.99 each.

Yeah I saw about a dozen of him a few days ago at one store, went back and they're already gone.

My TRU has two pegs full, too.  I got mine and was surprisingly happy with how he turned out.

Is anyone here starting to reject $10-12 "exclusive" figures that never used to?

I'm proud to say I've never paid more than a standard basic figure price.

Why can't a figure be exclusive to a store and still be $7.99 or less?

I'm not going to pay a ransom and I urge the rest of you to abstain as well.  Let these things rot on the pegs and maybe we'll see an end to $12 figures and $80 ARC-170's.

I'm not thrilled about it, but I did pick one up as to not deal with having to spend $30 later to get one "free". Too bad TRU didn't follow Wal-Mart's lead with their exclusive 501st Legion Clone last year. Those were the regular figure price and they seemed to be able to be found quite easily even for being and "army builder" of sorts.
