In the end I worry about folks getting that jedi the most :(
I don't see him distributing as much as the clones in later waves/case assortments

Looks like KB had Scorch and the Ut. Clone in stock but they went fast.

Sora Bulq is in stock and ready to ship for $6.99 and shipping ($4.32 for 2). Here's the link:

I find it quite amusing how folks must be going in there buying multiples(no doubt) of the clones at 7$ then shipping on top of it. :)

Yeah, but you have to admit, we'd much rather see people doing this that buying from e-bay or Frank&Sons.

What I find amazing is that people never learn. Sure, a few figures have bit us in the butt in the past, but for the most part, as will be the case for the clones, the hype will die down and then people are going to be kicking themselves for panicking.

Got my shipping notice from NewForce comics today!

The case should be here next week - it'll be nice to actually get my hands on Scorch and the Utapau Clone (along with the rest that I still need openers of - Sora, 3PO, Jango).   :)

EE is shipping this wave as well now. They've gone from being about 5 weeks behind B&Ms on the Hoth wave to about 2-3 weeks for this wave.

Hopefully this means the gap is closing between the major B&M stores and etailers.  I'm downright sick of dealing with my local Target, and Walmart is just too damn far away.

I finally found this wave at Wal*Mart today, except for Scorch and the Utapau Clone.

Holy crap, this is basically reaching epidemic proportions.  The hype around the clones should die down soon though.  But check this out, the term " star wars scorch" currently returns 91 Scorch figures.

I have been out of the country for a while so I am a little behind the hype.  What is the deal with Scorch?  I thought he was just some EU commander.  Am I wrong?

EU commando, yeah. From a game, I believe (and a novel...?). I guess everyone just has a hard-on for ALL the different clones. ???

Yep, it's a game (and I think the book followed).



You can never have enough clones (EU or not).

I am allfor clones without a doubt but their distribution ends up short changing us.

Found myself an Utapau Clone tonight. No Scorch, of course.

But it's hard to be let down over that since I got the figure I wanted more anyway.  I also picked up a Sun Fac because bug people are kinda cool.

It's all a matter of perspective though. Beleive it or not, in some areas, clones are no more popular or hard to find than any other figure. Hasbro has to consider this when malking their case ratios, otherwise they can loose more sales than they could gain by flooding the market with clones.
