2016 EE Black Series 6" Clone Troopers of Order 66 4-Pack

Looks like it's a 4-pack of ROTS troopers - they started teasing it today and will put it up for pre-order on Saturday, 10/1.

Nice, I should probably wait to pick this up cheaper down the line, but depends on how exciting a line up we have here.

I really want to like this set, but meh.  I already have the shocktrooper from WM and he's the best of the four.

I'm a bit more irked at the price tag for 4 x of the exact same figure for a total of $100!  This isn't 4 distinct sculpts.  This is the phase 2 Clone Trooper with 4 x different paint jobs.

I can totally understand some of the confusion about the Shocktrooper, too.  The Walmart exclusive Battlefront Shocktrooper just came out last year and was a complete PITA to get.  It absolutely would have been nice to see it get reissued.  But that character was a creation of the Battlefront game, and was an Imperial Stormtrooper with the red Shocktrooper markings like we saw in ROTS.  And THIS Shocktrooper is a phase II Clone repaint.  But the markings are so similar between the two that I can see the cause for some of the confusion.

This set is going to have to drop to around $55 for me to bite. 

I've done my mini-rant on 6" repaints before...  I just don't have room to grab minor variations and uninteresting redecos in the 6" line.   My wallet (and shelves) can handle a lot more of this in the 3.75" line, but it just doesn't make as much sense in the 6" line.

I spotted this set on Amazon for $91.99 with Prime shipping.  Not that much of a discount, but it's worth continuing to watch.

Got a notice that the price on this is now $99.99 after surging up to $145 for a while there.  I'm still thinking we'll get a window of heavy clearance eventually, the set is growing on me a little.

$71.99 was as low as I ever saw it go on Amazon, but I am holding out too. The fact that I have little enthusiasm for this set helps make the waiting game easier. $60 feels about right to me.

Been waiting this thing out for over a year now...this is my #1 target for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, assuming it finally goes on sale. Come on, Amazon!

***EDITED AFTER THE FACT - What Jeff Said!

Was just coming in here to let you all know the same (but with a JD referral linky #ad)

$39.99 is a great deal for the 6" Order66 Clone 4-pack

Please keep our links in mind.  We don't have many sponsors left and every little bit helps to keep the lights on around here. ;)
