With the sale at Target, I bit and bought this for $17.99.  Looking at it, its well worth it to have this many clones for the price.

I was amazed, last Wednesday I was at Target and it had the new endcap set up with all the Star Wars exclusives.  They had plenty of the Lava figures, at least 5-6 of the Clone Battle Packs, several Plo Koon Starfighters, etc.  Stopped by there yesterday morning (after oral surgery, woo hoo), and all the Lava figures were gone, clone packs completely gone, and 1 Plo Koon fighter on the shelf.  I was a little surprised all those lava figs sold, unless they took them in back during their sale or something.

You're lucky, these aren't supposed to be on sale. None of the Target exclusives are except the TIE.

You sure?  They're on sale in my neck of the woods, at multiple Targets.

Mike which Target you finding these figs?  Mine has not put out the exclusives or the Clone 5-pack.  The employees in my area are not cooperative at all when asked to look for them.

I've been to a few Targets around the twin cities and they are all different.  ::)

- Some Targets have NO exclusives on sale (cases, TIEs, Mustafar, Clone 5-pack)
- Some Targets have EVERYTHING on sale (including the exclusives)
- Some Targets have "selected" items on sale

It's really strange.  Some Targets have the Collector Cases on sale, others don't.  Some have the Clone 5-packs on sale, others don't.  it appears to be a totally regional random thing (probably based on sales or some other random metric).   :-\

Wow, I better check all my Targets then.

So I just picked up this set and I'm pretty disappointed. I knew going in that the grey Clones were the Deluxe Clonetrooper mold, I just didn't realize how bad they were. The packaging certainly hides their flaws, I was able to get past the odd ball hips they have that make them look bow-legged, but then I opened the box up and took a grey Clone out and it was all downhill from there. I was going to look past the lack of ball joints at the shoulders and elbows, but then I find that the left elbow has no joint at all, it's just stuck in one position. Then the wrists have no articulation and the coup-de-grac (sp?), the Clone can't hold his blaster in the right hand! The hand is so open, the blaster falls right out! Bah what a load of crap! Had this set been made with the #41 or even the #6 Clone molds, I would easily have bought a couple of these sets, but I had a hard time making a decision at the store to get one. I should have listened to that voice in my head saying not to buy it, but I bit the bullet and figured it couldn't be all that bad. I was wrong.... Now I'm contemplating returning it to the store for a refund, this shoulda been a sure hit....  >:(

The Battle Packs weren't on sale at any of the Targets around me either.  I've bought two of these and might pick up one or two more.  It's a pretty good set for the price, even if it is generic.

I agree with your disappointment Jason, but the price makes it worth it to me...  If I could find those supposed all-troop sets I'd likely cave and buy one or two more actually, but all my area stores have the Bacara in them.

I hate that sculpt as much as the next guy though, and if this was more than $20 I'd probably have bought my set begrudgingly.  The troopers are ok, but there's such BETTER sculpts available that they kinda feel like a letdown.  Even the #6 sculpt's vastly superior IMO.  I wish they'd have used that since it seems to met hat they sure as **** aren't using it to make Red Shocktroopers given that I've yet to see one of those damn things.

I LOVE this set ! :D  I have 3 and my army is even more vast & for a decent price too!  Since I have so many I can't "play" with most so the lack of articulation doesn't bother me.  I'm just glad they can hold their weapons in a two handed pose.

I just feel that knowing what could be put into the set based on pre-existing figures, that the set just isn't worth keeping to me. I'm going to likely return it tomorrow and get my money back. Maybe use the money to pick up a few more SA Clones since they're no longer hard to find and Target has figures for under $5 now.

Really too bad, this could have been a spectacular set, instead it's just craptacular.  >:(

They're still not sold out out here too...  Which surprises me.  Though there are noticeably less of them, but I only see 2 now whereas they had 5 or 6 the last time I was out to this same store, so that's odd that it seemed to take a moment to "hook" people.

Though I think the one lower traffic store I go to still has a ton of them, and Lava figures, etc., etc., etc...
