Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?

I tried the torso switch today, and it turned out excellent!!

All you customizers out there, definitely try this!!

Also, I think once I get another GREEN CLONE, I am going to try the switch there too, so I can have him in a standing position instead.

If anyone isn't sure how to do this, here's this Wookie's simple recipe:

- boil some water
- toss a Clone in
- let him get soft and mushy
- take him out with a pair of tongs
- using gloves or something to shield your skin, pull his chest off from his stomach region
- do this again with a different Clone
- trim the peg down a little bit from the lower stomach area
- put a new chest/upper torso region onto the lower extremeties

Bang!  You have a couple more Clone variants! :D

Sure, count me in for most of this stuff.  About the only things I'm not too thrilled about are the ARC Trooper and the silly Mace figure.  Just about everything else I like though, and plan on customizing a lot of this stuff.

I guess KB sees an opportunity to gouge a few more dollars out of us.  Kinda sucks, but I guess I can live with it since they have all of those earlier SAGA figures for so cheap.

My thoughts exactly Nicklab.  So how many of these does everyone have so far?

For me, here's the breakdown:

All White Pks - 5
Green Pks - 1
Blue Pks - 1

My army is starting to grow, but I definitely want to get some more of them.

On a customizing note, has anyone considered popping one of these suckers at the waist and switching the torsos on them?  For example, imagine how cool it would look by having the upper body of the kneeling Clone on the legs of the Clone that is in an extended stance?

I still don't have one!
I saw one at TRU a little over a year ago but someone grabbed it before I could. Havn't seen one since...
 (I'm in Canada the land of no star wars)

Would you like a few of mine?  I am sure we could work out a trade if you wish.

Yep, I really like the human probably the most, and then the blue Twi'lek.  The Rodian is alright, but I think a different alien might have been a little cooler.

Still, this is a very fun set, and I would definitely like to pick up a second set to customize a little bit.

Back on to the Clones though; which is everyone's favorite Clone pose?  I prefer the one that is standing with both hands on the rifle (almost in an extended stance position), and then I like the one with the binoculars second, especially after taking the binoculars out of his hand.  The kneeling Clone isn't bad either, but I really don't like the one that is lying down too much.

If memory serves me right, isn't there another version coming out too in a slightly different stance?

Yep, I agree that the green pack is very nice, that Clone with the binoculars is a great addition and adds cool variety to the line.  

I do have the blue Clone now too, and it really looks awesome with all of these set up in my Geonosis battle diorama.  Now I can only wait for the yellow Clone pack to start showing up.

So who all has found the Jedi pk?  I've only seen it once, and grabbed it from TRU.

No complaints here, I think that if they left him too much like the movies, then people would then be complaining that they didn't change him enough! ;)

My biggest rant might be the Mace Windu, why did they make his head so stupid looking?  Also, I really don't like Kit Fisto not having a shirt on, it reminds me too much of Whiplash, the He-Man figure.

I found two of the all white pks at a TRU today and a blue set at KB.  Bought them all! :D

Hey I would too, but with how cool those Clone 3-pks turned out, I think I'd like to see this done with Scout Troopers too, and of course Stormtroopers.

I didn't realize that he would sit well, guess I'll have to try that. :)

Another fun one might be a Scout Trooper 3-pk, I don't think too many people are 100% happy with the POTJ version...

I've got in the neighborhood of 40.

40 of them?  You sick ba$tard don't you know when enough is enough... ;)  Just kidding, I bet they look awesome set up in your diorama.

I've accumulated most of these at TRU stores, and found several at a Walmart a while back for $2 each on clearance.  I also found several at a collector show for $2 each loose.  They really weren't all that rare in the St. Louis area, or I got very lucky in finding them.

If I see any more, I would only pick them up if there was someone I knew that needed some.

As for the Clone 3-pk versions, well I am sure when it is all said and done, I will get around 12-15 or so of the 3-pks, which will give me 35-45 more Clone Troopers.  Cound the 7 or 8 red Clones, 7-8 pilot Clones, and the extra ones I plan on getting from the special 2-pks, and I am sure I will have well over a 100 of them come Christmas time...  GO CLONE WARS!!!

How many of this guy does everyone actually have?  I'm not really sure about myself, but right now I have about 30-35 of them I'd guess.

They blend in ok with the newer versions that have just come out, but I do have to say that I am sick of their static pose.  Although the 3-pks are in static posed as well, at least they have some variety.

About 2 weeks ago, I saw a ton of these Preview Clones at a TRU.  I passed on getting any more though.  Would anyone have gotten them had they seen them?
