Well, I hooked up a fellow collector with 6 on Tuesday, and then left 10 more on the pegs last night so I know they are hitting Walmarts here. I have a friend who saw 12 at a local Target yesterday so they have arrived here in Utah (he has 6 which is what he wanted). I have my fill of em and may have 1 too many.

I really did think this day would come. I stopped looking to see if I could find a Bly to see if it is worth buying and I hit 2 Walmarts and 2 Targets, 1 TRU and at the Target and Walmart, I found a total of 12 of these figures, and this was at 6 to 7 pm! I had two in hand at one Target (only 2) and some collector was there with his wife (who is on a business trip from Pennsylvania) so I gave them to hiim (first he had found!). Was nice to see him walk away with 2 sets of the final 5! I think the Tactical ops will no longer be hard to find for the next 2 to 3 weeks.

I found two of these at Target today, but only got one since the other one was opened a little bit. While these look a lot better in person, I can already see that once I open it the left arm is going to come off. ::)

I finally got our toy manager to order some (told her to only order Coll. 2) and we got 13 cases of figs, 2 Tactical Ops Clone in each.

You know, something just occured to me regarding the whole Comi-con SA prototype thing. Did anyone notice in the display that the Evolutions AOTC clone used a Gunner body, but came on an SA body? Perhaps the person doing up the hand painted prototypes accidently painted the wrong bodies for the display.

That or it was a rush job and they just wanted product out in the display to give everyone an idea of what was to come.

Answer #2 is right because they (hasblo) never even planned to do the extra 12 figs...when they realized they were it was faster to do it the way they did (or saved them production costs somehow undoubtedly).

I kinda thought rush job was implied, therefor being the cause of the mix up. But yet, I prove once again what happens when one assumes.
