I've got a set of 4 on order...and I'm debating splitting it up.  Anyone interested in splitting a set of 16 with me?  I haven't completely decided to do that yet, but I'm leaning that way.  We'd each take 2 of the white clean, 2x white dirty, 2x colored clean, and 2x colored dirty (opposite colors).

Anyway, let me know if anyone would be interested in that sorta thing...

Does anybody know when these are shipping? It only says May on EE's website, and I haven't heard anything else about these since they were announced.

Looking at their site today, it looks to me that they could be shipping any time now.  Many of the packs/cases are listed as "in stock" and "hot off the truck", and when I checked my order status it said it was processing.  I have read a few reports around the net today that their credit cards are starting to get charged, so maybe they will be on the way before too long.  I ultimately decided to cancel my order, just because I am spending money on so much other Star Wars stuff this year, and for some reason it just feels right to cancel it for me personally.  Hopefully I won't regret it later :).

Yeah, I got an email today saying that they were "Sold Out and Arriving Soon". I checked my order status, and my credit card has been approved. Hopefully these arrive soon!

Well I ordered my set, and it comes out to around $10 a figure (I ordered both clean sets). Pretty reasonable, I guess.

Reasonable?  No dude.  Extortion.

Well I never saw this guy in stores, and I paid $10 for each of my VOTC Stormies, so I think it's good. Besides, it beats paying $30 for ONE on eBay. ::)

And I think that email I got had false information, the website still says they're available, and in stock.

I can see now that pre-ordering those clones at almost $10/figure a few months back was just a nice little stepping stone to Target hosting the EIII clone with the red dot stage painting on the armor for $12.99 + tax/ each.  You have no idea how happy it would make me to see pegs overflowing with this figure.  It is a $5-6 figure.

I started to think that the price was a bit much to me as well, possibly because I'm in more of a "ROTS Clone" mood right now.  I attempted to cancel my order, figuring they wouldn't ship until May, but apparently I was a little too late and they are coming sometime this week.  Oh well, I'm not too disappointed...because they should be nice figures (I just got one set)....but for the $40 it cost me with shipping, I just keep thinking I could have picked up about 7 of the SA Clone from ROTS (if they can be found)...or other figures/army builders.  Oh well, at least they aren't bad figures :).

My set is also on the way.  Around here we were some of the first people to order them so it would stand to reason that they ship them to us first :)

Good news that they have the foot holes.  I guess my set might show up this week.

Mine hasn't shipped yet, but it's "processing." I hope I get them this week.
