Spudtrooper showed up here at only a single retailer and disappeared really quickly.  I didn't end up with one at all.

Here's a look at the variations - hours of fun I say!



That middle photo on the right is just wrong in soooo many ways...

Overall, I think R2 is cool looking but I probably won't buy it. Still trying to find a Spudtrooper though...

Brent / Brian,

If either of you do not want to wait and don't mind an open Spudtrooper, I can mail you out one at cost (whatever that was) + shipping.

No, I actually passed on it, just like spudtrooper.  I do have Darth (also saw some Darth Tater keychains in the US earlier this week) but that was a gift from my wife and daughter, so I could hardly say no.  If I found these potato heads locally, I'd pick them up, but I don't even feel like paying the additional shipping on them.  I even rejected a trade with them so they obviously don't do that much for me. 

Now, you buy all my comics.

"Usually ships in 63-65 business days."

Uh... I'll just wait for regular retail then I guess.   ;)

Hah!  That would probably still get here sooner than Canadian retail.  ::)  ;)

I guess I'll be checking Kmart this weekend. That's where Tim found my Spudtrooper, right before Christmas. I don't recall if we ever saw them anywhere else.

Ok, I technically went back on my word. I didn't pre-order it, but when i noticed it was in stock I ordered it. I got it in the mail the other day and i think it's my favorite one of the line. The holographic spud leia is a very nice addition.

I picked one up through the Hasbro site as long as I was ordering a gold titanium darth tie anyhow. It showed up, and I definately like it. I do hope this is the end of the line, or maybe just  a chewbacca to give R2 company.
