I've heard a LOT about either reshipments of these (maybe a 2nd wave of them was sent out at one point or another?) or just that stores were really stocked up with them.  I know that I had hit a store here and they'd had some and I got one there.  Then they didn't have any my next trip (at least that's what the computer told me).  Then a buddy said they had about a dozen on the pegs weeks later.  Very strange this figure was.

It's a good figure too so it's nice people didn't seem to have a horrid time finding it if they used the DPCI...  It's neat having it, but I just wish they'd had more at a cheaper price.  It's one I'd have loved to army build with.

Still haven't found one of these....I was at a Target on Black Friday and they had 10 pegs for it, but none there. It looks like a cool fig, are the going to reship?

I wouldn't count on it at this point...  The best thing to do was take the DPCI before they went on the pegs and try to get either a helpful (IE: Rare) employee at Target, or one who was confused but not argumentative, and get one for you from the stockroom when they came in...  I went around and got mine that way and it worked best.  I also got my TIE Fighter and Assault on Coruscant exclusives that way (just to be safe, as nobody knew how "rare" either would have been).  I got the first Clone the same way too, and I know other guys scored Evolutions sets that way...

My technique is to ask an employee in the back, if they deny you go to one in the middle, then one in the front if you're denied again, and lastly hit the customer service desk if all else has failed.  The CS Desk I've never been denied at.

What part of NC are you in? I'm in Raleigh.

Anyway, I was able to get 2 of these about a week before Thanksgiving, and they weren't even on the shelf. The guy didn't seem like he wanted to go into the back to get them. I never saw anymore after that, except at a flea market. I felt lucky to get 2 of them, as I never even saw the first clone.

Incidentally, the Utapau Shadow Trooper is the current entry in the What's the Story? feature on StarWars.com Hyperspace.

Here is the submission form if you're a HS member. He will be open for submissions until February 17th, when the next character comes up.

What's the story?

The story is Hasbro's shameless and will shill any random paintjob clone to any company they can as overpriced exclusives because they love dicking the consumer around with this line.  :)

Wait that's not the story they want?
