Custom or the real deal? If the latter, they had better change the base. Nice!

Yes, it does. Just wait, they'll repaint the sculpt many times over...Gree...Bly...Bacarra...etc., etc. :rolleyes :D

Yup, and its not like these are Hasbro figs that cost $5 bucks either.

Anyone know when this goes up for order?

Hey, if Gentle Giant can do it, you know someone else may do it, too. :lol

Richard: they did release 3 painted variations, all exclusives, of the Ep2 clone trooper....so the chances of them doing the same are high. :rolleyes :D

and 3 sandtroopers....

At least they (the sandtroopers) had different poses, unlike the crouching clone.

I remember seeing the Episode II clones on eBay. A little line of paint and voila - a variant clone. What a joke. :dunno

Yes indeed, guys, this one will be limited to 1,000 pcs and available exclusively at Japan Toys "R" Us stores. :(

I bet that SWShop gets ahold of 500 extra ones to make it a non-Japanese exclusive with a total ES of 1500 (1,000 Japanese + 500 U.S.).

If you remember, the Sandtrooper Sergeant and Corporal were once exclusive to Japanese Toys "R" Us stores and had an edition size of 1,000 originally before the U.S. release.

They really should change the base on the Shock Trooper to either Mustafar or the Senate. It does look very cool, though.

I ordered him, looks to cool. I wish Sideshow would do 1/4 Clone asap esp battle worn looking. Check out Azogs for some pretty cool pictures of him and the blue one in a display.

Definitely expected. Thanks for the heads up pitch, they must have added it after I checked earlier. Got my 2 ordered.

I like both, but hopefully the blue will drop in price to be had
for around $60 to $80 over time. We shall see.............. 8o 8)

Well, I went back and forth and finally ordered him. Just in time, because I just noticed that he is all SOLD OUT.

This is back up for those that want one. I went ahead and ordered 2 just in case I want them.

Showed up earlier today. My guess it'll bounce back and forth for the next few months like most items do there.

Yep. I ordered the Sandtrooper Sergeant, Corporal, and MR Special Ops Helm months after all of them had sold out. I guess some people cancelled and they bounced back up.

I can't believe they actually added them a week or so ago at $84.99. They rarely discount Koto items and those had been sold out, so why would they discount? Strange...unless they were damaged boxes or something.

They were damaged boxes.
