Got off work early today and had a bit of extra time... went to two TRU's, two Targets and a Walmart... NO CLONE TROOPERS ANYWHERE!!!  And only a couple of Battle Droid sightings.

-sigh-

So many Anakins, Obi Wans and Yodas.  :(

Vator,

It's Republic, not Republican army -  though I'm sure Zod will chime in with some smart ass comment.... :P

I tend to disagree...but to each his own I guess. I'll still call my CIS forces Confederates too.  :)

The ranks of my REVENGE OF THE SITH armies continue to swell:

Wookiee Warriors:  12

Clone Commander:  2

Clone Pilot:  2

Clone Troopers:  12

AT-RT:  2

BARC Speeder:  2

ARC-170:  1

General Grievous's Bodyguards:  4

Blue Royal Guard:  4

Red Royal Guard:  2

Battle Droid:  2

Super Battle Droid:  2 (1 x regular, 1 x from the Deluxe)



Have to say, the Battle Droids seem somewhat better than their AOTC brothers.  A good thing, definitely.  I'll be waiting on the SA Clone Trooper to further build up my Clone Army along with the 3-pack.  I'm also hoping that there are Commander Bly, Cody, Gree and Neyo figures on the way along with Commander Bacara.

I'm up to seven number 6 clones. I would have had the ONLY Commander on the pegs except they decided to put Star Wars stuff in two different sections and P'Dubbs decided he needed it more than I. >:( Bastard.

Anyway, yeah. 7.

I'll be happy when the Tank Gunner starts showing.  That figure looks like it's got promise.  Same goes for the SA Clone Trooper.  I can only hope that the Turbo Tank Driver will be good, too.

Was able to get two each of the following at Kohl's today...

AT-TE Gunner
Clone Pilot
Clone Commander
Palpatine (red outfit w/ lightsaber)

These are all freaking awesome figures... and I must say the best of the army builders is the Clone Commander.  Holy freaking Mike Schmidt!  Wow!  This might be the BEST ROTS figure yet.

The pilot is nice - very cool and up there as one of the best figures too.  Wonderful articulation.

The AT-TE Gunner is nice - but I must say that I won't be army building this one as much as I thought.   I hate his elbow articulation... it's a swivel arm joint that does not allow for him to have his arms in a straight position... it's almost like the arms from the SAGA Imperial Dignitaries.  Still though, a great figure.  I will probably get about 10-12 more, but not the 30-40 more that I originally wanted.  He does have ball jointed hips though... but no other ball joints except for the head.

 :P

That tank gunner is pretty sweet. Being that he's the only one with a helmet that comes off, I can't believe I only grabbed one. :-\

They make some odd choices, though. Why is it that when they have molds already for ball-jointed clone arms, they give this guy swivels incapable of straightening....?

Not to mention the unusually limiting shoulder swivels. ???

Added a couple clones.

Love that Collection 1 clone even, I'm amazed really.

Now just to add more Wookies and Royal/Senate Guards...  And hopefully then find Clone Commanders, Pilots, and TE Gunners.  :(  Had I stopped at Target on the way tot he toy show today, I'd ahve cleaned up, but unfortunately I didn't and the next guy came through and got them... 

You live and learn.  I was in a hurry to meet my buds though, and then another guy from our group scored them!  Damn.  :(

4 Wookiee Warriors
6 #6 Clones
2 blue Guards
2 red Guards (I want six, and fear they might have dried up for the time being)
2 Clone Commanders
1 AT-TE Gunner
1 Clone Pilot
1 AT-RT with pilot

I think Hasbro would do well to ship out cases of nothing but Clones. #6 Clone (or the SA one, if they were nice), Clone Commanders, and Clone Pilots. If they could get away with sneaking the Collection 2 AT-TE Gunner into the case, that would be cool too.

I think some army builder cases should surface like this:

"Clone Case" that features Collection 1 Clone, TE Gunner, and Commander....

and a 2nd case that is a mix of Red/Blue guards, and a repaint of the preview Wookie Warrior.  I'd like a black furred one myself.

Yeah, I'd like a set of clean officers, but that's rape.

My dream is finding a bunch of people to go in on a case with me but who just want the officers.  I'd take every set of white clones for the case price (it's not too bad, like $6.25 or so per figure), but I don't need umpteen officers.   :-\
