Sweet! Good thing I haven't bought a BARC yet.

Although considering the spoilers I've seen, I think it would make more sense to put the Wookiee with the AT-RT and the clone with the BARC.... *scratches head*

*spoilers*

Actually, if you take a look at, I think, issue 3 of the ROTS comic book adaptation, Chewie and Tarful help Yoda fight his way past what looks like a squad of the clone that comes with the Barc - so perhaps they actually got it right (if the comic is to be believed).

I saw this up last night, Hasbro toyshop.com, and it looks like its still there.  When I saw this, I thought I had been missing out on the AT-RTs because of this bonus clone, so now I'm hope I catch it on the second go around.

Hopefully, this means that this isn't a Khols exclusive. Can anyone confirm if these will be widely available?

I'm gonna have to track one of those bad boys down.  Hopefully I'll get one.  I love these AT-RTs, just when you think they are going to tip over, they keep walking.

Definitely a nice nod to the army building collectors (all collectors for that matter), to toss in a bonus figure with these vehicles now.  But a painful blow to packaging completists who now need to go buy another one of these things...  Ouch!  Not that I'm complaining though, as I'm well aware of the fact that it's my own fault that I'm such a freak!  :P

So I wonder if the Boga's gonna get similar treatment...

Should only have been $15.  I think.

I think it is supposed to be $15 as well, but at some Targets it will ring up at $20 for some strange reason.

Yeah Lando is me.  Chewie tracked me down and lead me here.  I have been catching up reading the posts and posting as I can.
Nice to be part of a forum group again.

Saw one at Target today, and I didn't realize the white clone rider pictured isn't the one that's included. Its this green guy:



I didn't get one, but he wasn't what I was expecting from the other images I saw.

Not that this is a big deal or anything, but the boxes with the bonus figs are about 1/2" shorter length wise than what the originals were.  I just found it odd that Hasbro needed to do this.

Wow, it's been several days and still no word on whether these will be available beyond Khol's. Also, why would Khol's be able to get something first?

This is quite interesting.

All the info I have heard thus far from Hasbro indicates that these will only be able at Kohl's (therefore Kohl's exclusives).
