Especially as we assume we'll see more of them in the next two films... and no idea if the TBS one will be re-released!

Someone also got me one as a gift later that day, and they both have good paint apps. :D

Any of you get the Stormtroopers from the overseas sellers? Simple ebay search and you'll run into them.

They're essentially the same deal as Hasbro's TBS version... 3.75... no trademark on them... only differences are they don't cost a ton, their color is just a little more "off white" and their joints seem to be a bit tighter (be a little careful when first posing them).

:wink:

Since finding any of the new 3.75" Rogue One figures seems hopeless, I picked up my first 6" figure today: the Walgreen's exclusive C-3PO. It is a nice figure of my favorite character, and the articulation is awesome. I might pick up the R2 when it is rereleased in the Vintage packaging, but there is no way I would ever try to replace my expansive collection with this larger scale. It's just a shame that the smaller scale is waning. That said, C-3PO is excellent.

Any more details to narrow down the search?

Just saw that someone on Instagram scored 5 Deathtroopers and 5 Shoretroopers *in store*...There's hope.
