I bet even with his purple whiskers and sparkles this guy would be impossible to get if it was a store exclusive.  I wish Target would offer their special clone trooper online.  That way I'd actually have a chance at them...  They offered the Lava Vader online the 1st day ROTS figures came out but no others since then.  I wonder why. ???

I just randomly checked SWshop.com and there it was, in stock. I went to order more, and it was no longer available. :'( Then I refreshed the page, and it was no longer listed.

Well I ordered mine right off and everytime I look it still isn't showing as shipped=I'm worried as hell. I remember how a TON of people were trashing this and saying it sucked and they wouldn't buy it..no way. Funny I see those same now upset that they can't get it. When you wait....you're late

but I haven't got mine in yet so I'm (hopefully) temporarily pissed >:(

I have 2 that should be here today but I still have mixed feelings about it.  The only reason for that is because I'd rather have the Target version which I think looks better (more sinister) and the Target one if FREAKING HARD TO GET!  The "Purple whiskered wonder w/ sparkles" is cool but it looks like it was geared towards my 10 year old daughter.  Not a complaint because clones are cool and Hasbro owns me when it comes to clone troopers and stormtroopers.

For the Covert Ops trooper I ordered it the moment it was available online.  Very stright forward.  I'd do the same for the Target trooper but so many don't follow the "rules".  I have 2 Targets near me and wrt the 1st clone exlusive BOTH allowed their entire stock to be DCPI'ed prior the the official release date so that the figures never made it to the shelf.  Annoying  >:(

I haven't recieved any kind of email either about it being shipped. I ordered mine back on September 1st. A little strange that all these people that ordered later are getting thier orders filled and shipped. I'm going to be a little annoyed if it doesn't work out. I've already sent them an "email" about it . . . . 2 days ago, and have yet to get a reply. Beautiful customer service!

Mine showed up as well yesterday, and after spending some time looking at the figure, I still think it's silly looking. I guess it's a fun repaint, but it doesn't feel like it would fit into the movies for me. I just can't get into EU-ish toys.

The paint job is just way, way overboard. It's also great to see the #41 Clone's upside down belt remains intact and, well, upside down.  ::)

The thing that gets me though is with the camouflaged parts of the uniform. They're done with three different tones of paint, and this time, unlike Gree, it doesn't bleed into a blurry mess. It looks perfectly clean, sharp, and detailed. It proves that camo can be done properly, and that Gree was needlessly botched.
