I picked up X3 of the Clone today at a Target. This figure is cool. I love the Clones.

I haven't had any luck in my area with these,  I am looking forward to gettting 10 or so, but as of yet all my normal toy stops have been empty, nodda, none to be found.  I will keep looking... these look and sound great!

I havent seen ANY. Pegwarmers. Everywhere. If I had the cash, I would buy them all out, just to see them go. If I see another Zam, or Han, or Chewie...some one will recieve bodily harm.

I scored another 5 yesterday at a Target in south of me, so I've opened 6 so far. :) Finally found my camera cable, too...  so here's some pretty aweful quality shots:

Just how poseable are they?:


Tarantino-style poseable! :)


Group shot:




And with a few 3-pack versions interspersed:



I put a lot of my Clone army into storage when I moved. Figures, as now I want to set up a diarama with the new guys in there. Target really seems to be getting the CW Wave 3 in bulk around these parts, judging by my big run yesterday. Now's the time to hunt for these! They're too cool!  8)

A guy at Scum posted tonight that you could only get maybe 3 good poses out of them...


Riiiiiiiiiiight.

If you have the imagination of a rock maybe.

I have easily posed mine into 25 different poses including many group shots where all 5 of my clones are in a differnt poses (nothing as fancy as SilverZed3 though :) ).

This really is the best figure ever made in this scale.  Anyone who can only get three poses out of it just isn't trying hard enough!

Jeff

ps.
The lack of peg holes doen NOT bother me!  If you can't get this guy to stand, you're just not trying.  Also, the lack of holes looks cooler on those kneeling/laying poses (wher you can see the bottom of the foot).  Also, I'd MUCH rather have the fancy ankle joint (the reason there is no peg hole)  that the peg hole!

These are the best army builders ever...and in my top 3 favorite figures of all time. I'm really at a loss for words right now other than I love them more that Ice Cream....and I really love ice cream...

It's still the only real point of criticism I can come up with for this figure, aside from including a rifle. Totally agree though, that it does not prevent many poses as you'd think it would. Given the choice of the articulation or the peghole, Hasbro made the right decision. There's always Stick-Tac that can be used instead. :)

If someone here finds extras of these PLEASE pick them up for me!  I am despereate for these, since I haven't found them in stores by me yet.

Those figures look so sweet!  People have been complaining about their feet not having holes in the bottom of them, but they sure do look like they stand pretty well (even with all the different poses you did with them).

Very cool!

They're definitely hitting.  Picked up two of 'em today.  Boy, they're real nice.  My only gripes are:

- the fact that the CT doesn't have pegholes under his feet
- the fact that the CT doesn't have a ball socket in the inner thigh/hip area
- the fact that he didn't come with a rifle

Oh yeah, and his thighs still look a bit chubby.  Other than that, the figure is perfect.   :P
