I don't have a toy fare vader either - that might be just about the only figure I'm missing to this day.

Will you take $15 for one?   :P

Its funny, I sold one for 15 or less originally and have been unable to part with the other 2 "extras".  Some part of me does not want to sell them for a big chunk of cash and the other part wants to kill that part. :-\

I got an email this morning that my 2 troopers shipped.  Now I have 2 of these on the way and 2 holo emperors.  Of course stupid me saw the holo figs in person and bought them even though I ordered 2 online.  I'm so impulsive sometimes...  Any one want to trade fo rthe 2 emperors?  I still need Bly, and a Tac ops trooper.  2 holo emps for a Bly and a Tac ops trooper?  Anyone?  Anyone?

I got my Covert Ops Clones at 8:45 this morning!  Of course, I'm luckily right next to the Lucas shipping warehouse here in L.A., so I'm usually amongst the first to get something when it starts shipping.  But that means everyone else should keep an eye out for theirs in the next day or two...

Nice looking figures, even if one of the bubbles was sealed on the card practically sideways.

Packaging absolutely sucked, as usual.  The two figures (in their starcases) were just tossed into a box with one small piece of thin brown paper crunched up for padding.  These guys are a joke...

Cool!  I guess that means the charge on my CC a few days ago wasn't a fluke!  :)

Since I was too slow to order one of these, I hope you all get herpes from that crack smoking monkey.   >:(

Time to dredge up the photos I took from my visit to the SWShop offices... I think that last guy was promoted from "Order Processing" to "Packaging".

Just got mine now. About to tear into it.

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if they saw all the negative reaction to the final product and said, "Uh oh, we better ship these now, before they can cancel their orders!". :D

I was hoping the final, close-up view would make it look better.  I wish I was getting the Target version and not the purple whiskered wonder with sparkles  :P  But I'll take it cause I'm a clonetrooper freak ;)

Didn't they say that they were going to offer a few more after the first orders started shipping?
I remember my dream now.

As pissed as I am that I didn't order these before because I need one for the wall and one for the shelves... I'm kinda glad that I still have my $30.00 and don't have a pair of these steaming turds.
