AAARGH!

They -had- to do this the day before the Celebration, didn't they?

There goes about half of my spending money.

I was really counting on this not hitting until May. :P

Damn I have no money now, they couldn't of come out a month later, and I really don't want to miss out on these. So what would you say then another month until there all gone?

I dont know how many they got or how many they sold. Alot of people passed on these because of the price. They might, they might not. Check EE's website and give them a call.

They are selling out quickly. They are out of the Clean Colored Clones & the 4 pack set.

I hope that means they are ready to ship or are already going out. Anybody seen Darth Quack around lately? I imagine these might sell out soon, lots of people wanted the SA Clone and this set might help quench that thirst, despite the price. Its much better than trying to get one off ebay, thats for sure.

Actually today they got the Clean Colored Clones back in today, I bought that and the Clean White Clones. :) With all the stuff i've been buying lately this is going to be one hell of a credit card bill this month. :(

I'm really looking forward to these. My card hasn't been billed yet but when it is its gonna hurt to the tune of $600. :eek: Not all of that is for me though, I only bought one case and the other is for a friend. Still 48 SA Clones is a huge addition to my ranks.

I did a will call order for a color/clean 4-pack, and just picked it up about 2 hours ago. This thing looks sweet, you guys are gonna love it!

Now I'm thinking about ordering 2 white clone sets (clean & dirty)..... hell I might as well just get the color/dirty one too! :crazed:

Thanks, I have to wait two weeks atleast for mine. :cry: I'd love to order more but it's too much, all I really want is 1 Clean Green, 1 Clean White, and another clean colored so I can customize it to be a Sniper.

Heck, at that rate you may as well just order a 1/3 case assortment for $120 and save some $. :smoker:

Thats what I got for myself as well. I also ordered another case for a friend too and I'm still a bit upset that the shipping charges totaled out to $51. :mad: If I get the package and it has the shipping total posted on the package and its significantly less than what I paid, and I'm sure it will be, I'm going to fire off a pretty nasty email to EE. Its bad enough that these sets were overpriced to begin with but getting screwed on the shipping like this may keep me from doing buisness with these guys again.

How much was your order, including shipping?

I paid $325+change including shipping. My average fig price comes out to be $6.78 each. That's not bad at all compared to normal retail prices right now AND that this is an exclusive PLUS they are the SA clones.

I just bought a set off Ebay for $110.00 plus $7.50 shipping. That's $117.50 total for 1 full set of four 4 packs. Cheaper than buying a single set from EE. Just in case anyone is wondering about the cost, the dealer probably bought direct from EE in bulk. EE sells to dealers/retailers at discounted prices. Anyway, my sets should be in next week. :D

My total was $650.98. Thats $599.98 for 2 cases plus $51.00 for shipping, which comes out to be $6.78 per figure just like you said. I just have a hard time swallowing the $51 S&H charge. I paid less in shipping charges for 2 Imperial Shuttle Tyderiums when those came out. :confused:

Yeah, I know it sucks, but just try to put it into perspective what you're getting here. This is the best Clone sculpt to date. When you average the figure price it's only $1-1.50 more than retail. Check out eBay and see what even the loose SA clones can go for and you'll see you're getting a heck of a deal. Also, if you break down two "super cases" (as I've been calling them), that's 24 4-packs OR 96 clones, for the 4packs you pay an average of $2.13 or per clone 53 cents. Considering that and the sometimes exhorbitant shipping costs on ebay for instance, the shipping price we had to pay is quite fair.

Hope that makes it just a little easier to understand and swallow.

Mine shipped on the 21st but I haven't got mine yet. Ayone got theirs through the super saver shipping yet?

I got billed this week but I live in SE Wisconsin so I figure it always takes 5-7 business days for stuff to travel Super Saver shipping.

I just received them!

I'm looking at them as I type this!

I ordered the SUPER case of clones. (as noted in the above post)

They came in a huge box. Each 4 pack is also indiviually boxed in a protective white box with text that denotes which variation set is inside!

I've only cracked one of these open for the moment, but I gotta say these look freakin' outstanding.

Everyone that's ordered these should look to be receiving them very shortly. If not today maybe tomorrow or very early next week.

Wow, these look great.

Did I say these look great? Cause they do.

Great, just great!

Okay, I'm going off to play with my army now...

Yeah i just got mine today. Pretty cool. I would like to ordered the battle damaged coor set as well, but its too much money.

When I went to order (once they were in stock) I missed the color Clean and got the white clean and the color damaged.

I have the Color Clean on backorder......these are eXcellant!

I got mine yesterday and i used the super saver shipping option. The box is of a decent size (i bought all four variations of clones) and each version comes covered in a white box. Ive yet to open them though because i need to send two boxes to another SSG member.

Well, I got mine in today! :D

Did everyone else have theirs ship in the white "mailer" boxes? Talk about well protected!!! These babies are MINT! For the price, they better be. LOL

Anyway, I am happy with these. The "battle damage" is a little weak, but that's OK. :)
