^ My early nomination for worst figure of 2008.

Thanks for the pic though... just really I think the weathering looks awful... looks like a cheesy custom.

Since this version isn't in one of the WalMart 3-packs and it's not in the Wave 2 assortment, what do you all think the chances are this figure will be a Target Exclusive just like the Saleucami and Utapau Shadow Trooper clones were?

While they haven't had a specific figure as an exclusive for a while, I could totally see Target wanting an exclusive figure as part of their Force Unleashed offerings.

Ack, that's horrid. I SO want to be a Stormtrooper purist. Other than the Shadow Stormtrooper that is. Sadly, I know I'll prolly cave and buy one or more of these.

That was my guess...

it looks like the Blue Storm Commander is going to be carded.  Since he's not in the TFU wave, maybe he'll be a Target exclusive to counter these Wal-Mart box exclusives.

If he's going to be an exclusive, I'd rather TRU get it. I loathe paying $13 for a figure (only to have it reissued a year later at $7).

I'm not totally sold on that idea.  The reason being that there are still other, significant characters in The Force Unleashed that we really haven't heard much about.  And they seem to be likely candidates for figures.  Just to name a few?

-Proxy - This is a droid that can disguise itself as other people
-Shaak Ti - She's confirmed to be in the game
-The Secret Apprentice

And the RS 411 report said that there may very well be more Force Unleashed waves later in the year.

Another thought is that it could be a game exclusive figure like the Scout Trooper was for Battlefront (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/otc/exclusives/01.html) and it would be available to those who preorder the game and/or through SWS.com.

Title: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Pete_Fett on December 22, 2007, 12:32 PM
I would be okay with that, especially if it ended up being a joint exclusive with StarWarsShop.com - if you pre-order the game, you get one for free. If you want just the figure, it will be $10 from SWS.

Has anyone seen or have a pic of the FULL cardback of FU Stormtrooper Commander???
Just wondering What wave this comes in and who else is in that wave???

I find it funny with all the released pics of this Figure a full pic of the cardback has never been shown.
Title: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Jeff on January 11, 2008, 02:41 PM
The cardback has been shown, albeit kind of small...

(http://www.rebelscum.com/TAC/StormCommander.jpg)

According to those who have the figure already, the cardback shows part of Wave 1 and all of Wave 2 (just like the rest of the Wave 2 figures have), but it does not have any numbering of it's own, leading folks to believe that it will be some sort of excluisve figure somewhere.

2. Many different pictures of a blue Force Unleashed Stormtrooper Commander have been leaking out over the last few weeks. He doesn't seem to have any wave or number attached to him though. Is he going to be an exclusive of some sort, or will he show up in a second TFU wave that we haven't seen or heard of yet?

** We canít give you any more detail on this other than the fact that he is not in a mainline assortment (hence the numbering). The actual details are still under wraps and will be revealed closer to the launch date for the game. All of our other mainline TFU sets will still ship on our original schedule, though.

I wonder if this figure will be available through pre-ordering the game and/or SWS.com?

Similar to the way the Battlefront Scout Trooper (http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/otc/exclusives/01.html) was released.

That is a definitely possibility. I just checked the GameStop.com pre-order page for the game - and there's nothing about it there, so once the pre-orders are being taken, it's not like you can retro-actively make such an offer.

So my guess is that StarWarsShop.com will be offering the figure. Remember, no exclusives will be shown at Toy Fair, only the mass market items that are open to all buyers. So them saying that we'll have to wait to closer to the release of the game makes sense if it's an exclusive to somewhere like SWS or Target or WalMart or even HasbroToyShop.com.

Title: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Pete_Fett on January 22, 2008, 08:28 PM
The mail-away figure is Captain Rex and he's in The Clone Wars cartoon, not the Force Unleashed - so the Stormtrooper "Captain" is going to be offered somewhere else.

Well, if you think about it - since they just seem to be giving them out for $5, there's nothing to say that you can't go to a bunch of stores and just keep pre-ordering the game for $5 and walking out with a figure each time.

I really wish they would just come out and reveal what the heck is going on with this figure.

I think it's EB Games in Canada. The auction link posted goes to an auction where the seller is in Canada, so that makes sense. Heck if you were not an action figure collector and there were giving you the figure in-hand with the pre-order, why not pre-order as many as they'll let you and at $90 a piece, not only will it pay for the game, but it will give you a nice profit.
Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander

Hopefully, here in the States, you only get the figure when you actually buy the game.
Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Jeff on August 26, 2008, 09:33 AM
Why would you hope for that?  To screw the folks out there who want the figure but not the game?   ???

I hope it works the same way as Canada is getting it... pay $5 for a pre-order and you get the figure.  That way anyone who wants the figure has a chance to get it without having to buy a $60 game that they can't use or don't want.
Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Darth_Anton on August 26, 2008, 09:46 AM
Didn't work that way with the BF II scout trooper, you could only get it when you get the game?

Getting the figure with the pre-sale only invites third part sellers into the mix, so not only will that take figures away from those who don't want the game, but it will also take figures away from those who are rightfully entitled to get a figure with the game.
Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Jeff on August 26, 2008, 10:10 AM

SWShop ended up selling the figure alone (for about $10 I think). 

Getting the figure with the pre-sale only invites third part sellers into the mix,

The current $90 eBay price is what will attract the third party sellers, not how you can get it.  I mean, if you can sell the figure alone for $90, why would selling the figure with the game stop the third party sellers?  At $90, they could drop $65 on the figure/game and still make a profit re-selling it...
Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Darth_Anton on August 26, 2008, 11:25 AM
That's right, I think you're right about SWShop. Also realized I made a typo in that question, should have been "Did it" not "Didn't."  :P

Good point about the third party sellers. Though, I know some scalpers around here that think buying the game will be too much of an investment, whether that makes sense or not. (Some of the scalpers around here ain't too bright.) However, that $90 plus price won't hold as only the impatient collectors with disposable income will only pay that ridiculously high a price, so we'll have to see if it will continue to fetch more than the game itself.

I think everyone should wait it out. Hasbro/Lucas will probably market this through another outlet after the game release in order to gain the money of collectors as not all collectors play video games. This know-it-all at 'Scum named Grak is spreading info that this is a Canadian exclusive and will not be released in the U.S. Somehow, in between being an internet tattle tale and just an all around *****, he was able to get a job at Hasbro. Huh.

In any case, if this figure turns out to be hard to find we could always use another undershipped Saga Legends wave.

Agreed.

This is why I wish they would just come out and say what's going on with the figure.

At this point, my guess is that it will just simply be an online exclusive with either StarWarsShop.com or HasbroToyShop.com on the day the game is released. And even though the folks up in Canada got it for $5, we'll have to pay $15 to get it.
Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Pete_Fett on September 6, 2008, 05:18 PM
Still no word on this and someone tried to get info from Hasbro in this week's Q&A and they blamed Lucasfilm for the fact that we have no idea what's going on with the figure.

I'm sorry, but that's a lame excuse. I guess if it's an exclusive being handled by Lucasfilm, that rules out Hasbro Toy Shop having the figure. That means here in the states, our only option for getting this figure will be a $14.99 purchase through Star Wars Shop.

I got confirmation from my local Gamestop that they have the figure as part of the release of the game. I preorder mine through them last night. They didn't have the figures on hand yet, but said they should have them by Friday, but won't sell them until game release date. Makes sense. They don't want people getting the figure then backing out on buying the game from them.

Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: JediJman on September 13, 2008, 10:12 PM
Well, it is possible that a lot of Gamestop's don't know that they have them.  We have a store here in Mpls that gave out a couple of figures with pre-orders earlier in the week.  I went to get mine yesterday and they told me they didn't have them, but would give them out when people came in to get their games.  i called back today to discuss the situation and the same person who told me they had none confessed that they do have them in stock, but that her employees mistakenly gave them out ahead of time and wouldn't be giving anymore out until people came to get their games. 

Just some food for thought on why your local gamestop might not say they have these:

A.) They really don't have them
B.) They have them and don't know it ('cause they aren't supposed to give them out yet)
C.) They're just giving you a line to avoid complaints and plan to give them out with the games

And of course, I sometimes assume the worst in people, but what would stop a Gamestop Manager from just keeping the case(s) for themselves and selling them online?  There doesn't seem to be any tracking of what has been handed out so far and most of the GS's I spoke with didn't know what the hell I was even talking about.   ::)

Post by: evenflow on September 14, 2008, 08:23 AM

Post by: DoctorPadawan on September 14, 2008, 09:03 AM
So, although I'm sure this has been mentioned somewhere in this thread, how much does this figure cost if you don't buy the game?  And how many of the figures are stores getting, total?  I'd be more than happy to have bought the game had they done a PC version of it, but as there is inexplicably no PC version, I'm only interested in the figure. 

And speaking of (even though I know this isn't the section for it), has there been any reason given as to why LucasArts didn't do a PC version of the game, given the huge marketing push behind it?
Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: Darth_Anton on September 14, 2008, 09:53 AM
There's been no conformation of the figure being available outside of purchase with the game, yet. However, as with the BFII Scout Trooper, it could end up at SWS.com, probably for $15-$20.

It was up for only a short period of time. If you blinked you missed it. There was also a slight variation between the version you got with the game and the version you ordered from SWS.com - it was minor, but at least they made it obvious to tell the difference between whether it was a pre-order version or a straight-up purchased version. I was able to order two of them w/o any problem.

Yeah - this has been pretty bad. I was told at one GameStop that if you pre-order it at one store, you can't take that pre-order and get it at another. So since only selected stores got the figures and they didn't know which stores were getting figures until just recently, as a SW toy collector, there was no motivation to pre-order this game.

I was able to get four figures tonight on my way home (2 for me, 2 for my friend) when I put in a pre-order for four copies of the game - I was already going to buy the game for the PSP and XBox360. My friend was going to get it for the Wii and PS3, so that's what I pre-ordered. I really hadn't intended on getting both formats of the game so soon, but whatever. To make matters worse, I basically had to BEG the clerk to let me have the figures right then and there. He was going to make me come back at midnight tonight to get the figures. I'm sorry, but that's retarded and someone at LucasArts should have thought to themselves: "It's one thing to ask collectors to attend a Friday-night midnight madness for the entire launch of a line, it's quite something else to ask them to go out on a Monday night just to get ONE figure and ONE game."

To make matters worse, there hasn't been any policy on this - in Canada folks have been able to just continually plunk down $5 and get a figure each time. In some locations in the US that has been the policy too. Since I gave the clerk my word that I would be back tomorrow to buy the game, I feel compelled to do it and I would have been happy to do it, if GameStop hadn't made this so damn difficult. Part of me wants to just say "screw it", be happy I got four figures for $20 and go buy the game at TRU and get a $20 gift card so I can offset the cost of the Lars Homestead TurdPack (I refuse to call that a BattlePack). Anyone know GameStop's policy on pre-orders? They're not going to just charge my card the remaining cost of the game if I don't go pick it up, are they?

If at some point in the future, the figure goes up on SWS.com - I'll order another one to open. But for now, I think I'm going to stick with just one to open and one to keep MOC.
Title: Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
Post by: JediJman on September 16, 2008, 01:14 PM
I think they'll just keep the pre-order money, but not charge you for the full game.  They may call to harrass you about it if you gave them your real number, but that's it.  $5 per figure is a good deal - I would just keep what you have and not buy the games unless you really want them at this point.  I know a lot of people are buying the games, getting the figure for FREE, then returning the games, so you're doing better by Gamestop by giving them the $5 than most are. 

I was able to get my fig last night and buy two more at $15 each.  Not a great deal, but I figure they'll cost more than that with shipping if they're sold online.

If anyone lives in an area with plentiful Commander figures and has an extra one for sale at a reasonable price, please PM me - it can be loose, I don't really care. None of my local Gamestops are "in" on this promotion. I wonder if it's a regional campaign... eg they figure the game will sell well in New York City regardless, so they don't need the additional promotion of the figure to drive sales?

The Gamestop near me wasn't handing out the figure until midnight. I got there about fifteen minutes before midnight and was told to go inside and pay for the game. After I paid for the game, they had me wait outside in a line of about 25 guys. They then let in five people at a time to give them their game and free figure. Most if not all of the people in line where video game players and not star wars collectors. Most though the toy was pretty silly and wern't there for the figure. Someone leaving the store gave me a stormtrooper as he left the store. Now that I think about it, I could have hung out outside the door and asked people for their stormtrooper and gotten mutiples.

I was told that I wasn't even guaranteed a figure by reserving the game and showing up at midnight so I decided to pass.  Thankfully a local was able to snag some extras as apparently most gamers don't care about SW or action figures, but they wanted the game badly enough to show up at midnight. 

Nice to finally close the book on TAC though.   :)

They are going for $20+ on eBay, although each auction lists it as Rare, or something, even though these about 30 up right now.  That doesn't make it common, just funny to see something described as rare, 30 times in a row.

Give 'em a year.

You'll be able to snag one for $8 plus shipping.

Yes, and even then, you'll be paying $6 too much.

I haven't been paying enough attention lately... I bought the game at TRU and got the $20 giftcard, so that's cool and all... but now I have another not-in-stores item to track down.

Is the $20 TRU gift card with purchase of the game still going on? If it is, I think that's the route I'll go to buy the game.

The same body for grey shadow stormie (from tfu 2 troopers with emperor) the blackhole or black stormie needs a removable helmet version.
