Found the ARC Trooper/white Clonetrooper at my local Wal-Mart yesterday. Hopefully I'll find more because these are a great deal  :).

Got the Anakin & Lieutenant and Yoda & Commander value packs tonight.  I think it's kind of cool that they actually noted the ranks of the Clone Troopers on the bubble inserts.

I also have to wonder, how well will this Anakin fit into his Starfighter?

I found 1 an Anakin/Blue Clonetrooper.  Darn cool if you ask me.  Glad to see Hasbro go Wally World to take these with a free figure.  Maybe Wal-Mart should threaten Hasbro more often :)

Quick question for those of you who have already found some of these...

Are the 2 cards for the respective figures actually conjoined somehow, or are they separate?  Basically, will there be any difference at all between the regular carded CW figures (like Anakin & Yoda), and the ones that come in these sets?

Also, are any of these Clonetroopers the same as any of the ones that came in the Clonetrooper 3-packs?

Color me stupid when it comes to this item!  Any info would be appreciated!   :-*

Hey JediMac-

I found all of these at a NY Wal Mart tonight scattered all over the toy aisle, there was no display.  But initially they come in a cardboard display that you can hang on an endcap.

The card is the size of 2 SAGA cards side by side, but all one piece.  You can separate them with a scissor of blade of some kind, but it's not meant to be that way.

The white clone, yellow, and blue, are all simply repaints of the SAGA red clone.  But the cool thing is the whole pack is just $4.77

I found a total of 6 value packs tonight but left 2 of them there because the clones had awful paint jobs.  The 4 that I bought were pretty nice.

Yep DR hit most of the major points, the two places I have seen remnants of the cases were at the ends of two different aisles in a blue box.  They were hung on two pegs...

Adam Pawlus has a nifty review over at GH of these, I agree that these are some of the best things of 2003...again my only thing is...why aren't they doing this with all figures if they can afford to do it here?  Plus non-Value packs are going to be retail death even more than before.  This may mean bad things in terms of Pegwarmers

Scott, don't know why Hasbro is doing it now, but it resembles their GI Joe figure packaging.  They all come in 2-packs now, and that must be working well for them.  However, those GI Joe 2-packs are about $8 each, instead of the Star Wars 2-pack price of $4.77.

They remind me of uncut baseball card sheets.

The card is the size of 2 SAGA cards side by side, but all one piece.

Yeah, that's what I gathered from glancing at a couple pix around the net, but thanks for the confirmation Matt.  Hadn't read Pawlus' review on them yet either, so consider me informed now...

Unfortunately, it's what I feared - as an avid carded and loose pschopathic completist.  Not sure what my game plan on these is going to be, but I'd imagine I'll "have to" be getting 2 of each of them, in addition to their equivalent single carded counterparts...   :-\  I guess that I can get by with only one single carded version to keep carded, since I can use the second value pack for my loose specimens.  Hopefully that's OK with my OCD...  I'll keep you posted on that developing situation...   :P

So, there's only 3 sets so far, correct?  Just the Anakin, Yoda, and ARC Trooper, and each of them only come with one specific Clone Trooper (no Clone swapping between the sets), right?  Has anyone heard whether there's going to be more of these, for some of the other future CW figures?

Thanks for the info everyone!   :-*

Only three so far, Matt.  Anakin with Clone Lt. (blue), Yoda with Clone Commander (yellow) and ARC Trooper with your basic white grunt clone.  As for more, your guess is as good as mine.  I haven't heard anything yet.

I would suspect that IF we get more of these value packs in the future, that we might get a green Clone Trooper Sergeant and another white Clone Trooper with Obi-Wan and Mace.  I can't see them issuing more red Clone Troopers.  There are plenty out there as it is.

As for the others, if they do them, I get the feeling they may pack in Super Battle Droids or Battle Droids with the Seperatist characters.  Just a theory, nothing more.

The reason they aren't doing this all the time is because Hasbro needed to do some major ***  :P w/ WalMart. This was it... Could it happen again? Sure it could  ;)

Thing is Wally cancelled on their exclusives and really were not buying much at all including Clone Wars product... Hasbro knows WalMart is an account that you need and want to support a line of any kind. So sometimes you need to do what ya gotta do...

This is a money maker for WalMart and that is pretty obvious by the lack of these value packs anywhere. There was no way they could pass on it. Although this was a one shot deal...

However many were received by each store was it. There is no replenishing of these...

Hopefully everyone that wanted made out w/ at least a set...
Gotta love me or leave me alone....
