Found the new Yoda and Anakin Skywalker Clone Wars Mini Fig Clocks last night at my local walmart here in Louisville, KY. They were $19.97 each. Good Hunting.

That Yoda clock is pretty awesome. I might just pick one of these up after all. I'll probably want to see one in person first.

Apparently there's a Jedi Luke as well.

Are Yoda and Stormtrooper short packed?

Saw 1 Yoda and 4 Anakins as well 5 Vaders and 1 Stormtrooper.

Maybe the Stormie is just popular. I think that would be my choice if I were to pick one of these up.

I picked up a Vader and Stormtrooper when Kmart's toy book price of $22.50 went into effect.

Now I'm tempted to pick them up from Walmart then head down the block to Kmart and return those with the Kmart receipt I still have. That would be a saving of $5, and every little bit helps these days.

There was 1 stormtrooper in each case of six clocks with Vader. If you find one, BUY IT!!

As far as Yoda, I've seen them in equal amounts at all the Walmarts I have been to.

Check out any Indy toy shops in your area. I scored a stormie one for $5 over MSRP. Better than the eBay markup and uou're helping out the little guy too...

Picked up a Stormie for $19.99 at Wal-Mart yesterday, they had 2 or 3 on the shelf along with a bunch of Darth Vaders.

i just wish they had some panel on the front to hide the clock when not in use -- the 1970s digital clock look is just totally ruining it for me...

At least my Darth Vader doesn't wake me up with "turn left at the round-a-bound"... ;)

That would have made these perfect if you could conceal the clock face. Maybe you could make a card with the torso printing on it to snap into place to cover the time. Now I really want one so I can try this out.

Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker Clock by fbtb, on Flickr

I was browsing through some old photos and ran across this. This was taken at this year's Toy Fair back in February. Apparently, there is or was supposed to be a Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker clock along with the Stormtrooper, Vader, Yoda, and Anakin clocks.

I looked around for it with no luck, so I'm guessing it never made it into retail production.

I managed to found the Stormtrooper and the Darth Vader on a french web shop called LaPetiteBrique.
They are french but you can ask them shipping for your destination, which I did, as I'm from Belgium.
Very pleased to found them, I'm waiting for it with impatience.

nope and it doesnt rotate

This was probably the most disappointing thing of all.

Has anyone figured out how to mod this so the head can rotate? I tried to open up the head, but I think the two sides are glued to each other - to prevent AFOLs from choking on the plastic piece. :lol:

P.S. Walmart was $19.99 right before X'mas. :D
