I would be buying a lot more of the SA Clones if I wasn't spending the money on the Shock Troopers and the black Clone Pilots. It pains me to see any of them sitting on a shelf but until I have all of these other two figures that I want, plus the Clone Evolution, and a couple other odds and ends, that is just how it must be.

No offense back but... your 'definition' sounds great but it really has no place where I live. You know what? My stores(well there not really mine lol, but my area) havn't gotten any new figures in almost three weeks- I've seen all the waves go through up through #56 including all the revisions- How do I know ? we have 8 or 9 places to shop I go 4-5 times a week and communicate well with all our other collectors here.  ::)

What I'm saying is since no new cases have been set out in
almost 3 weeks now THOSE clones are still there from then. I wasn't suprised today ..when walking with 2 other area fellow collectors how they agreed that they never thought they'd see the drivers/clone versions pegwarm.  ::)

Believe it or not- this is a big beautiful universe
and there are different areas/situations then your own..LOL!

Of course on the other hand.. there are NO colored clones left here because myself and others have stripped them ;)

I am more optimistic in believing other people's situations
'cause I've been doing this for along time and have seen some crazy ****. Show me color variation clones pegwarming and then definately I would be pessimistic about THAT story however..LOL




Ok, I think there's a bit of a misunderstanding here...

I'm not making any claims about what is available in your area. I know everybody has there own unique issues with distibution and collector competiton.

I'm just saying a product sitting for 7 days is hardly pegwarming.
You can call it that if you want, but I will disagree wholeheartedly.

Now you say the stuff is there for 3 weeks. That's a bit more odd for a supposedly hot figure, although the white clones are no doubt sitting becuse people are waiting for the colored versions.

Very nice!

Looks like a repainted Bacarra along with 4 "Gray Squad" Clone troopers!  Now THIS is a Battle Pack I like!

Why couldn't the Jedi Temple set have had a 4th Clone instead of the Pilot?   :'(

Not too bad.  I've passed on all of the "Battle Packs" so far, but I might have to pick this one up.  I like the grey Clonetroopers and even the Bacara repaint is something different.  Thanks for the pic, looks kinda nice.

The gray clone are some of my favorite decos in all of ROTS, glad to see at least those got made

And that blue bacara is sweet… just put the blue stripe on the chest like the 501st grunts have and you got a pretty nice 501st Commander.

I dub him "Commander Azul"

Yeah, it's funny isn't it-

A box with 5 Clones for $25 (at least 4 of which were actually IN the movie) is a MUCH better way to go than 1 carded EU Clone for $14 plus shipping...  :P

Nice.
Especially the packaging. What with the one guy with his foot propped up and holding on to the imaginary ceiling strap..... and the Jedi Temple burning in the background...

I may have to let that box sit around awhile before I rip it open.

This looks really great! Not like that ugly-DS2 Luke-including Rebels vs Empire battlepack. The only reason I'd buy that is for the Stormie...

Actually, I'll probably buy two to open. :P

If I didn't collect scads of other toylines, I think I might buy a third to keep sealed. But I don't have the room or money for all that.

This looks really cool and I'll definitely be getting one of them to crack open.  From what I can tell in the photo, the Bacara paint job is really nice looking, and I like the gray color scheme on the Clones.  And even though such things are secondary to me, the packaging looks really nice too.  As far as their end of things go, a big thumbs up to Hasbro on this set!

It would also be nice if Hasbro would actually, you know, release more of the Gunship on which the Clones are riding in this package for the holidays, but big vehicles don't sell, blah blah blah, so I know that's a pipe dream.

Now all we have to contend with is Target actually ordering enough of them and/or actually stocking them on the shelf rather than on Ebay, and we'll be set.  :P 

A box with 5 Clones for $25 (at least 4 of which were actually IN the movie) is a MUCH better way to go than 1 carded EU Clone for $14 plus shipping...  :P

Let's not get all excited yet, Jeff.  After all, this is Target we're talking about.  Knowing them, they'll order one set for each store and price it at 35 dollars, even though the regular open stock Battle Packs sell alongside it for 10 dollars less.   :-\

That said, can you or someone else check the DPCI for the price next time you're at a Target that hasn't blocked the scanner from customers?

Yep, I'd love to get two of these to open.  I'm just a bit nervous since it's a Target exclusive... I'd like to see it be a widespread release.

But this is the way Battle Packs should be!
