I found a Red ARC Trooper several minutes ago at my local Wal*Mart here in mid-Michigan. So for me, this is officially NOT a hoax!

I heard from Hasbro's media relations department that it is in fact the real deal.  I posted a story about it last night on http://www.thejawa.com/

Found a ton (well, 4, but thats a ton recently) of these out in Valencia, CA last Friday at Walmart. It looks like these will be available en masse.

Jared, you just bailed on me and moved out of the area, so stay away from MY Walmart and other stores, and enjoy your own new stores from now on!  Lay off the Red ARC Troopers that I'm still looking for too.  Thanks.

P.S.  Nice find.   :-*

Well, technically, I still had rent paid on the old place, so I was entitled to that Walmart. In honor of reaping the spoils of your Walmart, Matt, I shall go home and roll around in the ARC Troopers, and laugh maniacally.

Now don't let me be catching you at the one near my new place! Oh wait, there isn't one :(.

I just got my first one in a trade, and have "never" seen this at retail.  Just curious Jared have you stumbled on more of these since this find?

I must say, this is one cool figure!

Heh, funny.  The red version must be the Canadian version.  It's the only one I've seen up here. :D

Well, I think Jared's conscience got the best of him (for raiding my Walmart), so he was kind enough to pass along a couple of the red ARC's to me.  Aside from Ephant Mon, this is the only figure I've NEVER seen at retail...

Thanks a ton J.  I owe ya' one bud!   8)

I want 2 of these bad boys, so I can re-enact the scenes from the CW cartoon!

JM,

Have you heard of any reports of people finding these in the L.A. area?  Just curious.

This is priceless.  I actually found something you didn't?  LOL, I love it.  Damn, I'm going to have to go shopping again tomorrow.

This figure is still a thorn in my side, and one of the only figures I've never seen at retail.  I keep expecting them to finally trickle out, along with some more of the HTF CW wave 3, but alas, I've seen nothing.

Odd that Canada seems to have quite a plethora of them though.   ???

I never saw this one at retail either, I was thinking this was gonna be a transition from blue to red ARC Trooper dealio like the battle droid going from tan in the start of the Saga line to red later on. Where are all these elusive red ARC troopers? I want one bad. O.k I want ten, BAD.  ;)

These were a weird thing, never saw them in real abundance, but enough that I managed to pick up two of them.  It was a neat thing these Red ARCs, I wish they surprised us more with little things like this (ala repainted Astromechs or head swapped Army Builders and Pilots)
