UPDATE:TRU February Figure Promotion
Jeremy: Toys "R" Us is currently running ads for an upcoming figure promotion that will run throughout February. Not a great deal is know about the promotion, except that for each $14.99 purchase of Star Wars toys you will receive an action figure worth $4.99. Does this fit in with our earlier news that TRU stock computers now list a new "Clone Trooper" figure? UPDATE: Probably not as the SKN number for the free figure indicates it's from the Luke Hoth and later cases. In seven days we will know more for sure. With thanks to TRUJedi for sending in the report, and TRU Employee for additional info.

And

TRU Computer Lists New Clonetrooper
Jeremy: A new item has been listed in the TRU stock computer - SW Clone Trooper has appeared alongside SKN 960767. TRU Believer, who sent in this report, says that this item has a retail price of $7.99 but other details indicate it could be a part of a promotion. Could this be the long anticipated Silver Edition Clonetrooper that Europe has seen so many of? Only time will tell.

What you think?

I saw those on Rebelscum just 5 minutes ago and was gonna post it. I don't see that first one with the 14.99 purchase and a free figure as getting the clone, but it's interesting to see a SW Clone Troop for 7.99, 3 whole dollars more than retail. It may be sold as an exclusive rather than being a promo.

i think they need to restock some of those super articulated troopers, i only found one.:( :cool:

the silver clone would be a nice promotion, but finding $20 dollers in stuff to buy will be hard as my TRU has not stocked in weeks.

Yeah, I only found one Clone too. And mine had no holes in his feet! Did yours?

Yeah, I'll buy doubles if they have nothing new. I got lucky with the R2 and got 4 new figs :p

my clone doesn't have any holes in his feet either. but he stands on his own pretty well so its not a huge problem.

my TRU has about 15 figures on the hooks and they are all old and not something i want to buy doubles of, but if it comes to it i may have to.:mad: :cool:

Well the point of a super articulated clone is to have him in cool poses. I have him standing like all the others. Big improvement because you can almost use it :rolleyes:

One plus is he looks down so I do have him talking to Yoda but I wanted him dying because he gets into a better pose that just shouts 'Look at me! I'm being blown away!' :p

the commtech stormies were the best for dying poses IMO

anyway, the SA clone can do any stance that the others do, only its not permenantly stuck that way. but i guess you could try to "drill " very small holes into his feet and file or sand down the stands to fit into the holes. used the concept on some other figure but can't remember which one.:cool:

i too am plagued with one super arcticulated clone..no holes, which is damn gay.

i too have drilled hold in figures feet, cystomes only however.

and yes, commtech stormie was the best for dying.....wonderful actually........i bought the trooper builder 4 pack, and while it does not have the cool little blast mark......i have the comtech one dead in a tantive IV scene complete with an antillies choking vader....:D

Anyways, I don't have scenes, so it doesn't matter to me. I'm just happy I have my Wampa and Luke together, that thing is pimping awesome. :)

The bases sucked for the early figures, like the Aalya and tusken. They are getting better though.
