    I just read a sighting of the fig in the LA Just Found thread, so apparently they are.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Yeah, he's out, at least he was at the Target in in a suburb of L.A. I visited this morning. I'm the one that mentioned it in the L.A. thread. I'll have a better report when I finally have a chance to open him, but he looks like a slightly tighter repainted version of the AT-TE gunner. His helmet does come off(you can see his chin sticking out from the bottom of the helmet). His ankles are muddied up a bit. He's got more details, more paint than the Jedi Temple Assault clone.
    Says "Vaders Legion" on the package. They did not put out many of this wave's figures out though, and there was no Wookie Gunner, which surprised me, given the clone would be in higher demand. Like I said in the other post, I have a feeling they just put out enough to make the pegs look fuller.

    AAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHH!" back at you--I haven't even found Gree or Bly. So you can imagine my surprise when I actually found these guys instead. I haven't even heard of Targets in L.A. carrying the Gree wave so I'm a little confused about why these would be out.

    Found the 501 wave today at an LA Target. Looks like these will be scarce until Walmart starts getting them (Targets are only getting one case per store).

    Congrats on the finds. Looks like I'll be paying more attention to Target than I have for the past few months. It makes sense that these would arrive there before Wal-Mart, since the WMs seem to be pretty much loaded with figures, and Targets (at least where I live) haven't really put out a lot of product for the holiday season (Oct. 16 is apparently start of the new reset).

    I don't know if other people who found these will agree, but I personally have changed my opinion about the AT-TE's mold. I think it's a great mold, as long as it's for a repainted clone trooper. The two thin lines on the single carded 501st trooper give this figure a slimming look and I cannot overstate how much better the torso area of this figure, including the head, looks than the JTA 501st trooper.
    I'll try to post some pictures. The pics that have been posted by Hasbro or whoever up to date do not do this clone justice. It's actually a really good looking clone. Would the SA mold have been better? Probably. But I think a lot of people(including myself) who were down on the AT-TE mold will see things different when they see this figure in person--AND OPEN IT! That's key because in the package he really doesn't look as good.
