I saw a note over at the TradeFed that Yestertoys will be getting in a shipment soon...perhaps it is better to wait and see if more etailers start importing them

Want a Silver Clone for $24.99 plus shipping? go to http://www.galaxyactionfigures.com/productinfo.asp?productID=1584


Uh... for clarity, that's a UK seller, so that's 24.99 Pounds Sterling...
meaning around $46.00 US currency.  Plus international shipping, bringing it up to around $60-65 total.

Yeah, it is in Pounds. But when I e-mailed them they said it was American.
Better double check if you order with them.

I have one on the way thanks to a friend overseas. :)

I'd hold your horses on this figure folks.  GH has had a few scoops of info roll in on this figure in the last week, and it's starting to sound like it's definitely still coming, and might even have cases showing up in TRU's computers now.

So if you're not rollin' in the dough, I'd stay away from eBay and the secondary market for a bit longer.  Looks like a safe bet that we'll be seeing these soon enough...   8)

I talked to a guy at TRU today. I showed him a print off of the upcoming sales add along with the post with the SKU of the Clonetrooper. He told me they do not have the Clonetrooper in stock but it could be on this weeks truck. As for the regular Action Figures and Unleashed he said unless they get something on this weeks truck they will be stocking the older stock that is in the back.

If you snag the 25th Clone please post.

I think that they will be at the TRU's stores it will just be a matter of time.
I also think the Clones will come UPS as the R2-D2's did last year.

I wonder if it will show up on-line like R2 did last time??  That'll be about the only way I'll get one as there is no TRU in the U.P.

If I remember right, couldn't you just buy it outright??  

....the plot thickens....

Yeah.  It was $10 if you bought it seperately, or FREE if you added it to $20 worth of other stuff, I believe.

I decided to play it safe, and snagged several of the 'then hot' resculpted Landspeeders from Amazon, sending each of them to seperate households mind you, to snag 3 of the Silver R2's for free.  Of course, then I still managed to snag a few more for free, with little effort, when they were issued at the various TRU's.

I'd have no problem if the Silver Clone is handled similarly...   8)

Lets just hope this Silver Clone dose'nt have two left feet like the silver R2-D2 did. I'm still baffled how Hasbro could let that slide. ???

April 4th, eh?  Still have a ways to go, but at least we've finally got some official confirmation on this thing.  So stay away from eBay and the e-tailers folks, 'cause just like with the Silver R2 - the Clone's gonna be free with any $20 purchase at TRU or TRU.com.  Cool!   8)

Still don't like the idea of the Silver Clonetrooper itself (should've been a Stormtrooper dammit!), but what the hell - I'll get a couple.

This is good news.  Really glad I held out on this one.  I'll probably just pick up one of these, but is there anyone out there who plans on doing some bizarre Silver Clone army building with them?
