Not to be a pessimistic jerk but since they up the cup prices $3 for no apparent reason, my guess is that suggested retail would be the same but Target will sell it at 14.99.  And I have to say that $2 is nothing but is enough for me not to buy it.  $15 for a figure you can do at home with a $5.24 SA clone and some 3.99 paint is f-ing ridiculous.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

Did anyone bring up the whole "exclusives" issue at the Q&A?

Im not sure if Matt brought it up or not. I do remember someone dissing this Clone to their faces after they showed it.

If I find it I may pick it up. I would rather have a Commander Cody figure though.
I remember my dream now.

I dont know why, but i really like this figure and am excited for it. I think it goes back to me wanting a black stormtrooper from the old Star Wars comics.

An auction has popped up on eBay...

"The Utapau Shadow Troopers have played an essential role in helping the Jedi fight the Separatist force's massive droid armies, but their alliances change after the secret declaration of Order Sixty-Six. Armed with a sharp shooting blaster rifle and protected by hard black armor, this Utapau shadow trooper commander is ready for battle!"



Should be here soon I guess.

As a reminder, here's the DPCI for this guy:

This looks pretty cool. Reminds me of the Blackhole Stormtroopers from the Star Wars comic series. I'll definatly have to snag this bad boy up. If I can find it...
BTW Jeff thanks for the DPCI. That'll no doubt help on my hunt. :)

Rather than endlessly bashing this, and God knows I could, I'll simply say that I am glad for those who want this and I will be happy for those who can find it.

I like the figure and I want the figure. I'm not not sure that it will be worth the effort to find it and the expense when and if I do so.

After the SWS stealth trooper, this thing is starting to look good in comparison. ::)

I'm going to perhaps get 2...  If they were only $10 (man, sucks to say that), I'd consider a 4-man team though.  I gotta cut-back on the Clonies though if they're not basic figs.  The prices on these are just obscene.

I'll definately be getting one. I like the paint scheme, it would look cool next to Vader and Palpatine.

Then again, if I get this one, I'll feel obliged to get the Covert Ops Trooper. :-\

LOL my 11 year son Tyler wants one of each kind of clone-he already has at least one of everything so far including the first target exclusive exclusive clone. ::)

I think what I'm gonna do is get him all the rest types and around christmas take a picture of them in their rainbow colors splendor so I can post it here calling it a "sanfranciscan army" ;D

Better yet, I COULD decorate the tree with them....Hmmmmm..LOL yeah he'd probably help me too! ::) :P

I might get one... maybe.  Depends on the fundage situation, and of course, whether or not I ever see it.  Since I'm not seeing anything right now, not too concerned either way.
