Awesome...saw reports at RS and Sandtroopers these were starting to hit. Were they on the pegs or did you have to use the DCPI mind trick?

They had them in the back at a Target in Raleigh. I opted not to have them pulled, but I'll probably get them this weekend.

How much were they Ghost of QG?  I'm pondering the Geonosian and Trooper for the gun, actually, and selling the Geonosian off.

The price came up as $14.99 at the store by me. It was a bit pricier than expected, since I remember the last ones being $12.99... or maybe that was just the sale price.

Picked these both up today, courtesy of ye olde DCPI mind trick. Thanks for the tip! Gotta love cracking open a fresh case.

Haven't had time to look them over closely yet but my general impression is they are both outstanding efforts, like everything they have produced from the Geonosis arc.

These can't hit clearance fast enough as I would like at least 1-2 more of each for openers.

Picked up two of each of these sets this morning at my local Target.

Even though I was told by a manager that they would be put out on the 20th, they still weren't out this morning, so I had to use the DPCI trick to get them - at least the employees didn't give me any grief about it.

I like both sets, would love to army build them, but at $15 each, it just doesn't seem practical.

I grabbed one set to keep MOC and another set to open. If by some miracle these make it to clearance like the previous two sets, then I'll try to snag a few more of each - would definitely love to have small squads of the Special Ops Clone, Geonosian Drone and the Red Battledroid.

I saw these tonight...  Army builders in 2 2-packs?  Man, this is really where the realistic line fails.  You do something similar for realistic figures and I can't imagine that it would tank so long as the figures used were quality.

I picked up the set with the tri-pod gun, and I'm going to sell the Geonosian out of it...  I may sell the Clone too, I really just wanted the gun in it, but yeah, this is a really cool set I think.  They're both cool sets really.

They are, indeed, great sets. I hope we see more.

Picked these up yesterday morning at the local Target, and overall, they're pretty cool sets.  The clones are both very well done; the Battle Droid is what it is (I will need to get two more to pilot and gun in the recent AAT, so if anyone just wanted a Waxer and had no interest in the BD, let me know and I could probably hook you up with one).

My only issue with the sets is the Geonosian.  It's a really well done figure (I love the Zombie version), but the omission of the chest/shoulder piece bugs me (no pun intended).  Not so much that it isn't included, but that the hole said piece plugs into is left empty.  Still, that cool tripod cannon makes up for that small issue, so everything kind of evens out.

What really surprised me is that my local Target actually had them on the pegs, considering I sometimes wonder if this particular store even remembers they have a toy department.

Indeed, exact same situation with me and the store I got my set at...

I don't recall from the episode but do the bugs use the tripod cannon or is that a piece of Republic artillery?* I like the SpecOps set the best since it has 2 generic army builders in there, too bad they didn't include the backpack for the clone as most of them were sporting one in the episode. I had an extra one lying about and it really makes the figure, I think.


I'll pick up a couple more if it ever makes it to clearance.

* I guess I should have looked closer to the battle card included for the Geonosian as it shows it in using by the separatists.  :P
