Jeebus.

$12.99 for a clone trooper!  That hurts.

Is it the SA version?  Not that it matter for army builders I guess!   :'(

Just how the hell does two half circles of paint make a $6 figure DOUBLE in price?

I'll still get one, but two at the most. If I get more cash, I'll see if I can get more than that, if I even find them.

FYI,

My understanding is a 5/8/05 release date = Mother's Day.  Great reason for me to get up bright and early to get my wifey an nice Momy's Day Gift!

I'm not thrilled on the price, but I guess with all the advertising Target has been doing of late I can live with it.

I wonder if there will be a limit on how many you can get at one time.  And of course I wonder if there will be uniformity as to the policies at each store.  I have 2 Targets within 5 minutes of each other, so hopefully I'll be able to get mine and some extras for my buddies without Targets...

Went to 3 local Targets and nothing. One of the sellers on ebay is local and looks like he cleaned them out.  >:(

If you look at the picture of this in the image archive from CIII - the tag in front of the figure says that the suggested retail price is $9.99 - so it turns out that Target has gotten greedy and tacked on another $3?

Does anyone have a DPCI number for this thing or is it under the same number as Lava Vader....

This would make sense then why Target has on their planogram the space for an exclusive figure at $12.99 price point.

I sure as heck hope there are more of these then there are of the Lava Vaders!

Found them today - they are indeed $12.99 - hurts to army build.  I still don't understand what the red circel clone is.  Anyone help me out?

Who is the clown. Since we hit the same stores, maybe when I see him he'll have an "accident". Not that I advocate that sort of thing.

Accidents happen. The sad thing is, it's probably the manager.
