Yeah Aaron, waist articulation woulda been nice... but to be honest, for $5 this is still one hell of a figure.

They seem to be pretty much sold out in my area.  Along with Battle Droids...

I'd pick one up, if I wasn't so picky.  I think I'll wait for the SA version for now.  And #6 is everywhere here in Iowa, except at Target, where he's the only figure you can't get.  Besides the Red Guard.

i've been lucky to find the #6 Clone on every occassion I looked. I think it's worth picking up as its a fine addition to the Grand Army of the Republic, though of course now knowing what I do about the waist articulation, I'll definitely pick up a few of those SA Clones  ;D

I think you're pretty much solely responsible for the battle droid shortage in your area there Justin  :D

Well I broke down and bought a second one today.  I'm still not sure I can justify buying a ton of these with the Clone Comander, Pilot, and Tank Gunner floating around - plus with the SA clone on the horizon.  Maybe I'll grab half a dozen or so...

I figure I'm trying to spread it out over figs so I'm not so inclined to want 100 of the SA Clone coming.

I have YET to get any of the other Clones.  Just this #6 and the guards, but hopefully soon I'll get the others, and then find plenty of the SA Trooper too.  I want a lot of all of them at this point.

Yeah Dressel - I'm up to 20 or so ROTS Battle Droids.  Gotta stop there.  Too much money has been spent by this poor Wookiee!

But damn, I've started buying the AT-TE Gunners and Pilots now... check out Kohl's... they have been getting them in.

The way I see it, this figure may not be perfect, but he's darn close.  I grabbed 12 of him and when the SA clone comes out I'll get as many as I can.  However, I am predicting that the SA clone will be hard to find, so I want to make sure I stock up on the current one, just in case.

Yep, stock up on them while you can.  I totally agree with that theory.

Yeah, I kinda thought the same thing so I picked up 2 more when they were still on sale for $5 at Target... I have a total of 4 so far.

2 AT-TE Gunners
3 Blue Senate Guards
4 Red Senate Guards
4 Grevious Bodyguards
6 General Grievious :)
8 Preview Wooks
2 SB Driods

I believe there is only 1 clone commander in the film that looks anything close to this current clone commander that's out.  The rest of the commanders from other planets will look totally different, take Commander Cody and Baccarra for examples.

I think you really only can use 1 loose of this guy unless you're gonna customize it big time.

Check this auction on ebay.  Color variations?  Dont think so. Nice try.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2476&item=5969222710&rd=1

It was only a matter of time.  If your going to try and make a believeable auction he should of stayed away from those neon colors :P
