Great pics once again Jared, thanks.  I can't wait to find those last few clones.  Despite the complaints about Gree's "look", I'm looking forward to that figure the most I think.  Just one of my favorite of the "new" clones from ROTS.

I am going to post that I am very much in doubt about the posting at Galatic Hunter. I think the figures are from overseas since we are missing a receit to verify the purchase. We know from EE that one case ratio will have 3 per case. I also base this on the fact that if you check the major threads on the major forums on finds, you fail to have anyone in the LA area making reports of the same finds, or anyone on the West coast area reporting finding these. Perhaps I am wrong and since Targets here stock on Tuesday's, Thursday's or Saturday's traditionally, perhaps they will hit later this week.
 So . . . I am still in doubt about this post, and I am going to focus on my Wally's this week and if they show up at Target locally guess I can hope that a fellow collector can hook me up.

Furthermore, as I look at the picture, it sure looks photocroped to me. Look at the loose Clones, and how the card on the left intersects the 501st clone near Gree. Just looks fishy is all. That and the head that is on the bottom of the picture that looks like it comes from the cards. So, again, I have my doubts.  Probably am wrong, just looks weird and no other collaboration.

Interesting points. Does anyone know anything about the poster? That my help to clue us in on the authentisity of the report.

Thanks for the comments on the pics, guys.  :)  I have sort of standard shots I do for all figures and then some action shots. If you're looking through them and ever see something that you think is missing, give me a shout over PM. It would be good to have the feedback so I can better tailor the db for what everyone likes to see from images.

Great pics Jared! Having Gree in hand I have to say he BLOWS. He looks worse in person than he does in the pictures. I don't know how they could have gotten him so wrong, the picture on the insert  looks completey different from the figure. I have no idea why I bought that piece of crap. ::)

I'll buy this figure despite its errored paint ops… but I'll still make my own movie accurate version.

The funny thing is that you guys hate the figure but you still bought it.

I think the best one is the Wookie Commando....he looks really cool.

Passel Argente and Cat Miin are also pretty cool looking.

Bly looks pretty good....I don't open them, but he looks to have some good articulation.  Jesse, I'm awaiting your review!

Even though the Commander Gree figure doesn't look like the actual character, he looks ok for a green clone trooper. (I do wish they had gotten him right though....you'd think someone would've noticed the packaging at the Hasblo plant)
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Bly is pretty goood for a repaint but they got the color wrong. He doesn't match his grunts. >:(

The more I look at Gree, the more the suspenders bug me. He looks like a lumberjack.

Of course he does, it takes a lumberjack of a clone to take down the wookies.  And you have to have balls the size of Paul Bunyan to try and take on Yoda, orders aside.
You are never alone when there's a clone.
