Target Exclusive Utapau Shadow Trooper
« on: July 15, 2005, 08:09 PM »


Booooo!

This is slightly more appealing than that ridiculous Target-logo clone--he does look cool in a cheesy, totally impractical way--but it still sounds like a bad idea. And I'm sure it will be $13+. ::)

It looks pretty cool from the picture. Better than the Lava figures.

Yeah, but only 50,00 are going to be made meaning that it's going to be a hasstle to track it down. Ugh!

Interesting. Though I won't really be sad if I miss out on it.

At least it was not in the film.  I don't think?

Nah, these weren't in the film...

Might not be that hard of a custom though... no way am I gonna pay more than regular figure price for this.

Boo all you want, but I will happily buy this figure.   :)

I loves me those Clones... I didn't have trouble with either Lava Vader or the Other Target Clone, so I should be able to nab this one too.

Man, Target is kicking ass with Clones!   :)

The problem is though, why make them exclusives?  I can see the Anakin and Obi Wan, as they are lame in my opinion and I don't think they will be as popular... but Clones as exlusives?  I don't like this one too much, but these Target exclusive Clones are really getting annoying to me.

 :P

Objections aside, I bet I will buy it, 'cuz I'm a sucker for clones. I was able to resist the last one because of the astronomical price and because it was barely different from a normal clone. Plus in hindsight, he isn't even in the film.

But at least this stealth guy has a more extensive paintjob to show for his $13.99 or whatever.

All this exclusive stuff is just getting silly.

I'm kind of torn on this.  While I'd like to have one, it's not in the films and thus, isn't a concern for me.  If I see them, I may pick one up, but I'm not going to lose any sleep over it if I don't.

I can't even begin to understand how Target is getting about 50 different exclusives this year.  Lava Vader, Target Clone, the figure cases, the Micro Collection, the cup sets, Lava Anakin, Lava Obi-Wan, Plo Koon's Jedi Fighter, and now the "Stealth" Clone? 

Frankly, it's almost as if the regular open-stock items are those last 12 figures and everything else is an exclusive at this point.

Man, I'm really getting tired of the constant exclusive figures places like Target and TRU are getting. Maybe one here or there, but this? :P

That being said, I really don't care for the "look" of this one or a price-tag like the last ones, but I may very well get one if I'm able to find it at the stores.

If I find one and I have the cash, I'll get one. But if I don't find one, it won't bug me.

It has the same paint scheme as Cody's legion grunts...except everywhere you see black is white with Cody's crew, and everywhere you see grey is orange.

I'd like to see this same figure with the white and orange scheme.

You know me, I don't go for this EU stuff.  The $14 "stealth" clone, LOL.  Gimme a break.  It looks like it belongs in the streets of Gotham City or something.
