Okay... logged onto AOL and got off of NetScape. I got them.

It IS a FC Exclusive. The total came to right around $25.56 USD (I think).

Its fanclub exclusive, but you don't need to be a full SWFanClub member (as in you don't have to be in the $30/year fanclub).

I'm only a website member and its $19.99 for the 4-pack. I think its 17.99 for full members.

Mine came to $44 (2 4-packs and basic shipping PLUS the free 5-card starter pack).

yeah... I was a little concerned about that at first, but someone told me I didn't have to be a member. The members just get a discounted price because they already got ripped off once by joining the club! ;)

I think I'm gonna pass on these. I've got plenty already, so I'm saving up to get enough Endor Troopers to fight them.:)

I want to order the x5 Super Pack cause I was wanting to get some for building my army plus I wanted one set to keep in the box (even though it's just a white mailer box...) so this way I can get my army-builders and plus save $20 I would've paid for the one I'll keep boxed. I just hope S&H isn't too much... probably won't be able to get the super pack though, be my luck by the time I can order they'll have sold out. :frus:

I got the Super pack and it didn't charge me for shipping. Cool. Plus they are sending me a free pack of those crap AOTC TCG cards. Too bad they weren't old Decipher packs...

Are they on a card, in a box or in a "white box" or a bag?

They're individually bagged and put in the classic white mailer box.

Good lord! That's 100 Stormies! Which diorama are you doing exactly? the one where Han runs around the corner into the room of Stormies? :)

Eternal - Thats a great scene! I would love to see a diorama of that.

I might end up changing my order to more later on so I can have them all standing on a shelf in groups. So far I have 2 4-packs (8 stormies) and thats quite alot as it is.

But 100 stormies? Sheesh thats alot! If I could afford it, I would, but not any day soon.

I can't get them because the stupid and so called fanclub doesn't ship overseas. Grrr....this ****es me off.

Btw, does anyone have their set(s) already? I wanna know what weapons they included in the final version. Hope they included 4 Imperial issue (Stormtrooper) Blasters, cause i really hate those big floppy rifles!

:frus:

No one has them yet... they just went on sale on 13 May. They come with two rifles and two blasters.

Also to clarify, the regular E-11 Stormie blaster they come with are the larger, POTF2 versions. Not the smaller, softer (although technically more accurate) POTJ blasters.

Personally I'm glad. I can't get any of my comtech Stormies to properly hold most of my tiny soft POTJ blasters, so I've been using the larger ones anyway. They just look much more menacing.:)

I was actually hoping that the POTJ Sandtrooper came with the original '95 blasters so i could switch weapons with the Commtech Stormie's. Could do it anyway, but the Sandtrooper can't hold his weapon, let alone the CommTech Stormie.

Stupid Hasbro.

The POTJ blaster I think was smaller than scale. In the movie the Stormy rifles were pretty big to Leia but they're a perfect size for the figure.

So I guess my next question is.... how many stormtroopers does everyonwe have here, and how many do you wnat to get in the end?? I owuld love to hear from everyone

Currently I have 15-17 CTC Stormtroopers, I don't have a definite number has to how many I want but I hope to have a good amount for an Imperial Base dio.

The Fansite said that the Stormtroopers should be at our doors on or about June 7th.

DarthMaulSithLord: I thought there was a thread that talked aboiut a set of Comtech Stormtroopers similar to the fanclub set. I thing the website was either from Germany or England. - You would have to put them together yourself though.

I only have one CTC Stormie.

I have 8 POTF2 Stormies opened.

I have 2 Luke w/helmet Stormies that I keep the helmet on.

I have a Fruit Loops Han that I keep the helmet on

And an opened Death Star Escape that I keep their helmets on.

Thats 14 stormies in various poses. Add the 20 from the super-pack and i should have enough to make some decent dioramas...

I have 1 vintage stormtrooper and thats it. I started too late to get any of the POTJ/POTF ones. Grabbed the vintage one off ebay for a low price.
