It seems to have become the bane of my existance. I hate thing figure with a passion! It's everywhere I go, taunting me...laughing at me...laughing at me...laughing at me!
"from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee!"
Who's with me? Anyone?
Well, OK, maybe it's just me...and I can live with that. I hate this figure.
Don't get me wrong, it's a nice enough sculpt. They paint application seems to be pretty good for the most part. It comes with a removable shoulder armor plate with new Imperial logo which is a cool new feature.
My problem is Hasbro's execution of this figure. First of all they killed it for me by giving it a lame action feature. I will never be able to bring myself to "Army Build" with this figure, not when I know that #41 is soo much better. Why does Hasbro do this to us?
First the CT Stormtrooper was hard to find, sure they released him in subsequent lines, but always in limited amounts. They gave us an "Army Builder pack, but try finding it for less than $25.00 plus shipping. Then along comes SAGA and they decide to give us a Red Clone instead of the basic White. They put out the SA Clone for Clone Wars but production was a joke! So they give us "Army Builder" sets that cost an arm and a leg. Now they give us a basic Clone and stick a lousy action feature inside it. Then wait until #41 to give us what we want! How hard will this thing be to find...VERY!
If Hasbro were smart they would ship #41 in solid cases!
So round and round I go hunting from store to store, plenty of Clones to be found and all of them that horrible #6 action feature Clone. Few people seem to want it, and fewer still go out and build armies with it, especially when the SA Clone is on the verge of hitting wide distribution. Each time I see a Clone I wonder is this the one, only to be disappointed.
Well, enough of my ranting, who's with me?
