Another hard announcement to stomach here. I've got the silver R2 and would love to get the Vader as well, but probably never will due to the cost. I think the silver figures on the retro cards are actually pretty cool, but the distribution of them is what really sucks. Hopefully the fan club can come through on this figure and hook us up with it, and hopefully in much greater numbers this time around as opposed to that Vader nonsense.
Why are they doing a silver Clonetrooper though? That seems dumb. I like the idea of these figures as being "retro", and therefore from the original trilogy. Please Hasbro, don't start up with the silver treatment on the PT figures also! In fact, let's just have the Boba Fett be the last one. Or maybe just a Stormtrooper to round the set out, but that's it! No more!
