I totally agree Jared.  I'm an over the top clone trooper fan and I have to say this is my least favorite clone so far -- by a lot!  Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I have it (2 since I collect one of each card style) but my daughter agrees it looks like it was targeted for the 10 year old girl crowd ::).  It's like they hired a GI Joe person to cross over and make a funky Star Wars figure in some sort of exchange program.  Maybe there is an extra cool GI Joe coming out soon  :P.

Rebelscum just reported that the clone trooper went back into and back out of stock again today.

I still haven't been able to order...  :P

Me either. Not really worried about it now. If you search for it it comes up but you can't add it to your cart.
I remember my dream now.

Yeah, the paint deco is WAY too weird for my taste.

Went in and out of stock yesterday as well. Again, I tried to order more, but by the time I clicked to order, it was gone.

I have a feeling this is going to be the only ROTS figure that I really want and won't have one of. :( I just can't bring myself to pay some way out eBay kind of price for it. ::)

I hope I'm not rubbing salt on any wounds but I was looking (not playing...what?) at mine last night and it's really growing on me. The joints move better and more smoothly than any figure I have and I really dig the solid plastic of the shiny material it's made out of.  When it's not exposed to really bright light it blends well with the shadows in a creepy-cool sort of way.

No, you're not. As much as I am bothered that I was unable to get at least one of these, I don't begrudge anyone lucky enough to get one. In particular someone who opens and plays around with it.

The thing that I find strange is the fact that hasbro showed us with this figure they can properly apply camo on a figure, so why did they screw up Gree so bad?

I like this figure. I ordered 3 way back when the pre-order came up. I really like the packaging. The purple is a little out in left field, but for the most part I'm happy to have them.
Hey Hasbro, Wake the #@$! UP!!

I don't have the game but I'd like to see some examples! Is there a website that shows some of the new clones you are referring to?

After opening this guy up, I have to say that I'm a little dissapointed. I like the paint job, but, I think the #41 torso doesn't work well with the head they're using.
