I got it, because I am sucker for the carbonized figures and especially troopers. Add in it's got the 40th ESB logo, and I already pre-ordered. I can understand it's not for everyone, but I buy so few figures whenever ones come up that are my focus it's hard to pass on them .
When I heard of the Stormtroopers being Carbonized, I thought they would have the look of the Carbonized Jet Troopers from ROS that's a Walmart exclusives. I was picturing them in that pearlescent paint scheme, not silver? These look OK, I'd rather have the original white or the Shadow Stormtroopers in black/blue.
