Hopefully with these items being exclusives, coupled with the fact that you must be a member to get into Sam's, (unless you get a free pass or one-day coupon) these will be remotely easy for most to attain. Cuz I'm tellin ya, with four figures included, these are an incedible deal!

Which clones are they? They don't look like #41 or #6. They look like the Target clones minus the emblems. :(

How do I become a member? I live in Canada and am going to the states in a week or so and would love to get one.  Any info would be cool thanks.

Sam's Club Membership Info

If you are just going down to the USA for a bit, you can sometimes get 1-day freebie memberships to "try it before you buy it", so I would check with the store first before buying a full membership...

Jeff's right. 

It depends on the individual store. 

Some are like the Pentagon when it comes to entry, others could care less.

Two plain white clones and only one pilot? That seems rather odd to me.

What astromech is that? the ROTS preview one?

If the figures are 100% repacks as opposed to being some new variation (i.e. the Target SA Clone w/o any emblems) then I'm only going to get one of these for the packaging variation.

The Sams Club by me charges a bit extra to go buy something if you're not a member. I think it's like 10% more or something. Being that I only shop that Sams Club when they have exclusives like this, I'm willing to take the 10% hit.

I might be wrong, but it almost looks like the ROTS #7 R2-D2 figure.  Very weird.  I would have thought an ARC-170 with a generic repainted astromech and three Clone Pilots would have made more sense, but oh well.

As for the Clones, I'm not sure what they are (I don't have that good of an eye to tell with the glare and the fuzzy photo), but the Target Clone was a ROTS Clone head slapped on a Clone Wars SA Clone body (with paint apps), so they could have just used that one again as well for this, since all other Clone SA bodies were being utilized for the Chevron Gas Station exclusive Oil Slick Clone Trooper.  :)

Hope the Mustafar set comes with at least 2 red shocktroopers.  I have a better chance getting those clones that way than the regular carded versions.

Hopefully I can get in there without the membership. I had one once, but now it's $30 to join. Bleh.

And I hope the Mustafar set has some Shocktroopers in it. Hell, I'd buy it if it had regular white Clones, but I'd really like Shocktroopers.

Knowing Hasbro, the Mustafar set will come with a Pilot or two as well.  ::)

They were going to do bonus holographic figures but due overstock the assortments will be accompanied by either a clone pilot or a crappy neomiodian warrior. :P
