So, I got my order in the mail yesterday... but I didn't have a chance to open them because I went straight from work to the Hockey Game (Wild v. Phoenix). 

So, I got home from the game and took a brief look at them before heading to bed.  I have to admit that once I had them in my hand, they don't suck quite as bad as I first thought.  Don't get me wrong, I am still not thrilled about owning a purple kitty-cat deco, ugly silver Clone Trooper but it's not as bad as it could be. 

I guess that at this point, I should just be happy that I was lucky enough to grab one for my collection and just move on...  :-\

Yeah, the the purple markings don't stand out as much as they do in that loose pic we all saw. Up on a shelf, he just kind of looks dark camo.

 I received my two troopers today. They do not look as shiny as they did on the SW website. I'm happy about that. These figures are a great addition to my collection.
THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE

"Partially covered in vac-metallized finish, with camouflaged patterning on select sections of armor"

What? Mine isn't vac-metallized at all. If they changed that before the actual release, they should update their description.

LOL! I busted out when I read this. I guess I complained a little too much. Sorry about that. And yes I was about to get my 2 Troopers.  ;D

Got two!

What a relief, now I won't have to pay $1000.00 to Brian's toys for a pair.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

Just watch, everybody finally gets to order and then in a few days, they'll offer up all the jacked ones at a reduced price.
