I really don't care too much for these, I have a Silver R2 and he is cool, don't have a Silver VAder and don't care that I don't  The exclusivity of Convention type exclusives (see Muppets and MOTU lines) borders on asinine IMO.  Same goes for Mr Sacul as well

Well, I'm a comletist so I'm going to get these one way or another, but it's frustrating to say the least that Hasbro's doing this...  I think the silver-plated figures will look nice as a centerpiece to the collection but they're really just being made too difficult to find in some respects.

I hope we see some change in availability...  Maybe a one per customer rule instead of 2 as was with the Vader.  That might help somewhat.

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!

I have both the silver R2-D2 and the Toy Fair Vader, and I love these figures.  I'm against the fact that the silver Boba Fett is going to be limited only to the Mexican convention, and that figure will be a couple hundred easily once it hits eBay.  I don't own a Sacul figure, but hopefully one of these days I will.

Everyone is really getting worked up over the Silver Fett (if in fact that's what it is, and while I believe it is indeed that figure, I will still contest that it has yet to be officially confirmed). I feel pretty confident that we will be able to get this figure, inexpensively, through other means. I've heard a few very trustworthy remarks from some people that are involved directly with a group that could help us get these figures, but Im not going to say what, or who, I dont want to start anything ;)

So, dont worry too much at least until its released :)

Well, since I was fortunate enough to get Vader and had lots of help getting R2, I "need" to get the Fett so the set remains complete.  I like the Fett idea, but clonetrooper?  That's not a misprint of stormtrooper is it?  The latter would probably look pretty sweet.  I really like the cards they are on.  Very nice.

Hasbro is supposedly planning on doing the Boba Fett and Clone Trooper "silver" figures.  I still would rather have them do a Stormtrooper versus the Clone Trooper, because these figures are to represent their 20+ year anniversaries.

Well, looks like slightly better news on the Silver Fett's availability now, since it'll be at four U.S. conventions, as well as the Mexican convention now.  Plus the Fan Club will be taking orders too!  So hopefully the production numbers on this guy will be decent enough to satisfy all the collectors out there.  $10 bucks a pop.

Looks like I'll definitely be hitting the San Diego Comic Con now, and will likely be scrapping my Mexico convention travel plans...   8)

I can't believe how much money those Silver Boba Fetts are going for on eBay.  That's crazy, and it hasn't even been released yet to the public!

I'd like to go ahead and throw my hat in the ring for anyone who can spare one of these.

Yes, it's nice to see that for those of us not making these particular con's that there will be a chance to buy one on-line.
