I am happy that Hasbro finally but slowly do single versions of the way overpriced EE 4-pack, 2 done 2 to go ( I count the BB Shocktrooper too )
But rethinking, I would have prefered the plain white Phase II trooper from that other 4-pack for this archive slot.

That way we could armybuild like hell AND do custom paint for whatever colorpattern everyone wants 🤔😉

I have two of these already. Not sure I'll bother getting another, but it's great for those that didn't get him the first time.

I might spring for one of these, didn't get the original and love the Archive packaging

Certainly the highlight of the wave for me at least. I'm sure people will want to army build this guy. Need at least 2, but I wouldn't be opposed to getting 4.

Well we just got Echo and they're making Captain Rex available again. Finally any 501st army builders can build to their hearts content. I want to but I also don't want to. I would also expect Fives at some point in the future considering there is a TVC version of him.

My favorite clone (excluding commanders), and I never got this one, so very happy he's getting released.
Rest of wave, not so much.

Kind of weird with Best Buy. I had 2 in my cart but every time I tried to check out it kept saying "not available for the delivery method selected please select a different delivery method". It's a pre-order and the only option was to have it shipped. There was no other option. Now it says "coming soon" and you can't put the item in your cart.

I went and ordered one on BBTS, didn't want to sleep on this one just in case.

Has anyone been able to determine if this is the new phase 2 Clone Armor buck, or the original sculpt that was in the Order 66 4-pack?

It's the original sculpt, you can see the pins in the elbows and knees for the double knee/elbow type articulation.

The other giveaways are the slightly thicker visor the old helmet sculpt has and the thick elbow straps that show this hasn't even been updated to the Rex standard to get slightly more bend out of the double elbows. This is original sculpt in every detail.

These were back up on amazon earlier this afternoon, with a shipping date of January 1st. Ordered two, since my Pulse order is currently delayed until March. Let's see what happens.

Looks like it popped up again on Amazon a few minutes ago, but it wouldn't show up in my cart for some reason. After many attempts it finally went back out of stock. Only scalper scum listings now. I guess I wasn't fast enough to out pace the bots. :rolleyes:

I got a couple on pre-order at Best Buy as a safety net, but I would prefer Amazon. Best Buy is notoriously slow. I can't recall the last time I got a pre-order from them. I usually end up cancelling it because I found it someplace else.

Although I have a couple of these on pre-order via a case at Skyward, Gamestop just notified me that the singles I ordered through them are nearly ready to ship. Of course, GS likes toying with us with their, "Don't miss out. Your GameStop order ***** is dropping soon," emails. 😒

Back in stock on Amazon. Shipped and sold by Amazon.

BTW, is it easy to remove the battle damage with say rubbing alcohol? I just feel like it's way to dirty. The ironic thing is Hasbro could have saved some money by not adding any weathering. Personally, I would have been just fine with clean looking clones.

Edit: gone again. Sorry.

Not sure about rubbing alcohol, but I have had good luck with diluted acetone and a q tip, just be patient and do a little at a time, when you try to get everything in one sweep is where you tend to remove something you did not want too.
