It's my understanding that there's 3 different Stormtroopers that are out (which makes two variants, though they're all evenly distributed, I know). Semantics. I think from those 3, you can make up a total of 8 different arm combinations, essentially making 8 unique Stormies.

Yes. Three Different Stormtrooper Sculpts:



BUT, there are only FOUR unique Arms. Let's call the Stormies 1, 2, 3 from the photo above.

#1 and #2 share the same right arm (A), while #3 has a unique right arm (B)
#1 and #3 share the same left arm (A), while #2 has a unique left arm (B).

So, we have

1 - Right Arm A - Left Arm A
2 - Right Arm A - Left Arm B
3 - Right Arm B - Left Arm A
4 - Right Arm B - Left Arm B

You already get 1, 2, 3 in the packs, so the only one to create is #4 using Trooper #2's left Arm and #3's right arm.

THEN, you switch the guns around (TWO different guns) to get the 8 combos.

2 right arm X 2 left arm X 2 guns = 8 combos


1 - Right Arm A - Left Arm A - Long Rifle
2 - Right Arm A - Left Arm B - Blaster
3 - Right Arm B - Left Arm A - Blaster
4 - Right Arm B - Left Arm B - Long Rifle
5 - Right Arm A - Left Arm A - Blaster
6 - Right Arm A - Left Arm B - Long Rifle
7 - Right Arm B - Left Arm A - Long Rifle
8 - Right Arm B - Left Arm B - Blaster


What I find funny is that in order to achieve all 8 stances, you may actually need FOUR of the SWshop.com 3-packs.   ::)

Since you only get 1 long rifle per set of 3 (according to the picture) and you need FOUR long rifles to complete the 4 figures, you'd need 4 sets of 3.  Also, you'd need FOUR of Trooper #2 and #3 each in order to mix the arms to get enough parts to make 2x Trooper #4 and still ahve 2x Trooper #2 and #3.  If you did that, you'd end up with another extra Trooper #1 everytime you make a Trooper #4, thus 2x more Trooper #1 from creating 2x Trooper #4.


SO, to truly cover your bases, you better order FOUR of the Stormie 3-packs. Then, you'd have enough parts for:

1x Trooper #1 - Right Arm A - Left Arm A - Long Rifle
1x Trooper #2 - Right Arm A - Left Arm B - Blaster
1x Trooper #3 - Right Arm B - Left Arm A - Blaster
1x Trooper #4 - Right Arm B - Left Arm B - Long Rifle
5x Trooper #5 - Right Arm A - Left Arm A - Blaster
1x Trooper #6 - Right Arm A - Left Arm B - Long Rifle
1x Trooper #7 - Right Arm B - Left Arm A - Long Rifle
1x Trooper #8 - Right Arm B - Left Arm B - Blaster


OR, I could be completely wrong or the 3-packs are completely blinded and that would change the whole thing for how many you'd need. It's suck if you ordered 4 sets and got 6 Trooper #1 and 6x Trooper #2, you'd be screwed... :P

which looks to have a removable hood.

Is it a removable hood? Or is it maybe one of those "turning heads" action features, a la Man-E-Faces from the He-Man line?

I wouldn't be surprised if one side of the head was Old Palpatine and the other side of the head was wrinkly Sidious with a little turny-wheel in the back to switch the faces...

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper 4 Packs!
« on: January 6, 2005, 01:53 PM »
i want to know if the all-white clones w/battle damage are going to have the damage marks all in identical spots or if all four will have differently placed and shaped battle markings?

From the looks of the picture at EE:


It looks like the blast marks on the Red and Blue Clones ARE in different spots, the red has a blast mark on his left, the blue more of a scortch mark on his right, but no one really knows until better pictures with all 4 dirty clones surface or people start receiving them... :-\

Nice Art, Bill. Not as great as some of your others, but better than I can do for sure.

CC.com still sucks though...

Everything I hear on these says that they are delayed, but why? I guess I'm not really sure of why they got delayed.

They haven't really even popped up anywhere in the rumor mill that I have seen... still is still a strong chance that they show up at Target at/around the Ep3 melee though ;)

For those interested in the Johnny Lightning ships, it sounds like NewForce Ccomics is doing full sets INCLUDING chase peices as well...

Quote
We have received our shipment and will be able to make complete sets of all 6 series 1 ships available for $24.99 (+ shipping). They are not on the site yet, so please email for ordering details, if interested in obtaining a set (newforcecomics@aol.com). Thanks.

***UPDATE 1/1/05*** We have received an incredible number of requests, far exceeding our existing supply (wow!). We are trying to determine if we can get additional cases in route to us, and will respond to all inquiries asap!

***UPDATE 1/3/05*** I believe we will be able to procure more cases directly from JL, so we should be able to fill all requests, as well as new orders-we will email specific ordering instructions to all that have emailed us requesting. Also, we will be shipping the rare/chase white lightning ships as part of sets at NO additional cost...


May be worth your while to drop them an email and see if you can stil get in on the pre-ordering for complete sets of ships?

Oh and it's a motley crew at that. There's what, 8 of us in a room :o *shudder* Think about one bathroom after a night of beer and hot wings ;)

I'm already planning on bringing a new can of Glade/Oust Air Freshner, and maybe a 3M organic vapor respirator to sleep in. :P

You know, on second thought Brent, maybe Hong Kong would be a better place for collectors to live?

You could nab cheap Kubricks AND pick up the Star Wars stuff that "falls" off the Hasbro trucks AND you'd have it all weeks before everyone else in the USA! :P

Hmmm... maybe I better ask the wife if she ever wanted to move to Asia? :-\
