The funny thing is, being EU, I'd leave it on the pegs for $5, Hasbro and Target can forget about $13.

Seriously, how many people here are going to go out and hunt for this thing with gas $2.50/gallon, then pay probably upwards of $13 for the actual figure when you find it after going through 1/2 tank of gas conservatively? This piece of **** realistically costs $30.

Dressel's right.

The only reason is I work anymore is to pay for the gas to get me here and home,  health care and the babysitter!! 

**** it.  I quit.

I'm voting for the other guy and going on welfare.  Let you bastards support me.

Uhhh looks like a custom to me.

It's not a custom

I know it's not. Just saying it looks like one. But Im sure the guys on the customs board could do a better job.
I remember my dream now.

That's a pretty bizarre mix 'n' match, but I think they look kind of cool. They'd be very much improved if the shoulder colors matched though.

I have decided that with the clones that are not in the movie, I will buy them only if I see them, but I will not look for them.

These look OK, but nothing that interesting.

The guy selling these isn't a customizer, nor known for selling customs.  Not much is being said on them, but right now I'm thinking they're NOT customs but something due out sometime in the not-too-distant-future.

Are they cool?  I think so...  I'm a fan of the non-film figures so long as they're good figures on their own.  Price is up in the air (as with everything else anymore)...  I'd like an army if I could find them for a good price.  I'd like a squad if I could find them for a fair price.  I'd like a team if I could find them for an unfair price.  I'd like 1 if it's going to be too expensive for my tastes/spending limitations.

I like the pauldron, and I like the colors.  Could use a little more color, but he's cool as he is too. 

Like other non-film (and non-eu even) repaints, I like it.  The films aren't "everything" for me as a collector/army builder.

Well now i dont know what to think. The guy who is not for selling prototypes, is selling these, which Hasbro is now saying are not the real deal. Maybe they are customs.  ???

That's nice to hear.

If they are going to invent new paint schemes, at least use up all the various movie and EU ones first. =)
