I guess I got lucky with my red ARC.  I went into Walmart one day and saw several pegs of them and grabbed two the first time.  I came back the next day and grabbed another, opting to leave a few for others.  Then I came back two days later and haven't seen one since.

I opened two of them and ended up selling one of them last year sometime.

I was lucky also on both the Red and Blue, and have 3 of each loose now. My son has 2 of each loosed so I guess we were spoiled here in Utah. I can remember walking in and seeing about 30 Blue's, and then a week or two later, seeing about 30 Red's. Everyone here got one that wanted one, and more got at least 3 because of the debate at the time of how many Jango had trained (3 blue's I always said).

Utah is where I got mine. And the only place I ever saw them.

I got my red in Cali right on the pegs in the front-this after I already had everything /didn't know about the color variant/ just thought it strange so,I purchased it. ???

Didn't buy the 'blue'- it just doesn't look 'blue' to me-just a little bluish gray compared to the original=had the opportunity/didnt buy it ::)

One of the few things I know I never saw.  Pissed me off to no end, and I still don't have one.  If they'd make a GOOD Red ARC Trooper utilizing a SA Clone and just adding some accessories like a kama/holsters and that same rifle, I'd be pretty content but Hasbro's such a hive of douchebaggery that they miss this easy sell.

I'd buy blues and reds if they were "realistic" sculpts but accurate to the cartoon as far as their details (IE: not the CW version).

Thanks to Brent, I got one in the mail today. :)  Sweeeeet.  That rounds out the CW line for me pretty much.

While that is over the retail for this figure, it's not a bad price.

In Canada I didnt even see a single CW figure aside from the animated Mace Windu...
Later in the year we went to disney world where the clones are plentiful.
I got the red Saga clone...it sucks but it was a birthday present from my little sister so its still nice to have.
I saw 2 reds and 5 blues and 4 SA CW clone troopers at a wal-mart down there, but it was on the top shelf, and back then I was short so I could grab em' and i had 90$ to spend, instead right as I had gotten a stool I thought it was in my grasp when some guy ran right infront of me and grabbed em' all.
It was a kick in the teeth, I meen hell I still dont have anything from the CW line... :'(
