It's all about the 25th anniversary of Star Wars

Technically not, since Boba Fett was originally from ESB (please don't mention the Holiday Special).  But I agree with the sentiment.  Seems we should at least be honoring the OT here, but ANH most of all.  A Stormtrooper would've been perfect, and one of the few decent remaining choices to be "silverized".  Too bad.

Honoring the Clonetrooper, or even AOTC, with the vac-metal at this point is just silly since the movie and character don't really warrant it so soon.  Kind of degrades the rest of the "silver line".  I wouldn't want to pose the silver Clone next to the other 3 silver figures myself.

Well the guys up here in Canada are finally receiving there Silver Fetts.

But not to there liking! Reports on Snowtroopers are coming in that they are getting hit with a $21.55 CDN UPS bill on top of the $7.00 US for delivery.

Not very good IMO, especially when the Santa Yoda is coming out!  :-\

How in the heck did I miss this!

I just read over on the main page of GH that the Silver CloneTrooper promotion launches on April 4th. This is free with any purchace of Hasbro SW products of $19.99 up. It also mentions that they have a price of $4.99 & a SKU number to sell any remaining stock once the promotion is over.

I have not seen these at all, but when I do I will be sure to tell you.  I have heard some reports that some one bought 4 of them at their TRU for 4.99 each!

But the wait is almost over for these Silver Clones!

I am guessing that TRU is going to re-stock all their Star Wars stuff too.

Cause when the silver R2 was offered. TRU had all the new waves there.  So I am really looking forward to this baddi!!!

Someone also brought up that the Silver R2 was available at Amazon.com for sale during the TRU promotion time-period. Maybe it will happen again with the Clone.

That would be cool!  To buy lots of the Clone Troopers, what an army builer!

This was indeed true, but it was rather pricey.  I ordered six at the time.  $9.99 each but no other way to get them in Canuckada.  And worse, Amazon does not ship toys past that imaginary line on the map.  

I'll be needing help on these, unless amazon comes through again.

These showed up at a TRU near me this fine day for $4.99 hanging on pegs with every other figure I guess.  They're on their way.  Yay!  

*sigh*  These things are boring...  Oh well.  A complete set of silver figures, I think, will be sort of neat.
