I like the new Trooper figures and they do pose great, but aesthetically, I still find the original 25th Troopers/Officers to be the best. They completely nail the vintage look.

According to Walmart, I should get Grunt and the Cobra guy on the 17th. Incredulous squinting has begun.

Ordered two officers and one grunt.

They just shipped me.....one officer.

That card is going to be ruined.

After my order being stuck on delay for 3 days, I contacted customer service and was informed that they are out of stock on this product and that I just have to wait for an unspecified amount of time or get a refund.

What is the point of pre-orders if they are going to stock shelves with the item before fulfilling the orders? More like a post-order.

So I'm pretty much screwed, cuz I ain't paying flipper prices for these guys. Just gonna have to live without these figures in my collection because Walmart hates money.

I found 2 each of the Retro Wave 5 Grunt and Cobra Officer today. One Walmart got that case in while the other Walmart in town got another case of Wave 4. The Stalkers and Cobra Troopers are falling off the peg.

Looks like they found my dudes, Grunt shipped last night and the Officer just shipped a minute ago. Hope that happens for everyone else as well.

Mine say they're shipped...but also delayed...whatever that means. Says they're coming next week but I'm not holding my breath.

Got my Grunt today, and I gotta say I love him. He would be a lot less interesting if he didn't have that unique face sculpt. What a punim!

Grunt and the Officer are great little figures.
I really REALLY need them to do commando Snake-Eyes on the Stalker/Grunt body. All he needs is a new head.

I found an Officer (along with a ton of troopers and Stalkers) at Walmart in Delano, CA yesterday. Then my order from Pulse showed up today. Glad to have two of these guys, such a great figure!
