Looks good, I'll wait for the normal looking release as I'm not really into the carbonised look of the figure itself.

Is this only available in Carbonized? Or are there two 99s? One white carbo and one regular red/black box? Or they different numbers?

If he's number 99, do we know who is #98?

Man this is just getting all so ridiculous.

Ah ok disregard, so a little sleuthing on Yakface looks like he will be regular boxed 99 as part of the second wave of figures. I would imagine #100 will be the regular version of Luke Yavin complete with exclusive (that the actual exclusive doesn't have) medal? So that makes 4 confirmed cabonized exclusive releases (Sith Trooper, Second Sister, Mando, and Jet Trooper).

We haven't seen anything like this from the First Order ranks. Unless its mentioned in comics or other books with them mentioned. All I can say I hope articulation is great and if so, its another trooper and I have to find another spot on the shelf.

Not feeling this design; it's OK, but still somewhat bland. It reminds me slightly of the "Spacetroopers" that were briefly seen floating around the Death Star in ANH, when the Falcon was being pulled into the DS by the tractor beam (I think they made at least one 3.75" figure of these characters, years ago).

In any case, I'll probably pass on this 6" version. If they make a 3.75" version, however - I may get that - but that's a big maybe.

Ugh, a freaking Walmart exclusive. They'll never learn.

At least all the other Carbonized figures are different store exclusives so they should be easy to find.

Yeah, I'm not really feeling this one either.

Man, if the Emp...*ahem* First Order would cut it out with all these specialized units equipped with unique armor, they could save so many extra credits to spend on building more planet destroying space stations.

It kinda makes you wonder if Cobra Commander isn't secretly running the First Order.

The Walmart near my job seemed to have just put out Force Friday stuff. Included in the big shipper were some Carbonized Jet Troopers. I really like these. Some great McQuarrie-esque details. The carbonization gives it a kind of 70s look to my eyes, which only enhances that BUT isn't really in line with the pure-white First Order look. So I'm a little torn to see how these fit into the collection over all.

Found one of the Carbonized version at a Walmart yesterday. Cancelled the preorder I made online on TFF. No need to risk Walmart's shipping.

still shows 2 in stock at my local Walmart but saw nothing today. Walmart is always always a disappointment. Either they won’t sell me product like the TFA FF or they have nothing or their inventory/stock is inaccurate. I have never found one good toy find at a Walmart in a decade, if ever.

Did you find the Jet Trooper in the cardboard display or at the main aisle or somewhere else?

Monday I found a few of the Carbonized Jet Troopers. This was in a city that really doesn’t have a collector presence. I found 2 at one store and 2 at another.

Still waiting on word of my Carbonized Jet Troopers, which should've arrived today. But with Walmart, it most likely not coming.

I have a feeling that walmart is screwing me with my order...says expected to be delivered Tuesday...
But it hasn't shipped yet. When I called them..they said everything is on track and I will have it Tuesday...the thing is that's the same crap I went through with the marvel legends 2pack... I really hate having to deal with Walmart...

I preordered a carbonized one from Walmart on 10/4 that's supposed to get here this Friday but hasn't shipped. Ordered another two days ago when it came back in stock Just for the heck of it, and it's already shipped. If you preordered, I'd suggest canceling it and reordering.
