#65 vs. JTA #6
« on: November 14, 2005, 09:58 AM »
Hey GANG!

I have just now gotta a Tac Ops (#65) trooper, and am a little confused about the detailing.  shouldnt the #6 and #65 have the same markings? (stripes on the legs), since they are both vaders' legion?  If He's some sort of commander, I thought Appo was the commander of the 501st?  can ne one shed some light??

thanks

Some in the movie had stripes and some didn't.

I should point out I haven't looked at the scene to verify it, but that's been the consensus, that some did and some didn't. A lot of people agree on it. I'll have to take a look... As far as why, I can only guess it has to do with rank?

Who knows?  Maybe some have the leg stripes to signify that they are just grunts and the others are officers or something.

But I actually don't like either of these figures.  I prefer the #41 sculpt, and repainting it.

 :P

#41 rocks!  I have 2 of the JTA packs (so 6 of the clones) and 2 of the #65 on the way via Amazon.com.  I'm going to have a couple of commanders 1 w/ and 1 w/o helmet on.  I like #41 so much I'm starting to buy them up just so I can customize them.  I have the worst luck w/ finding these repaints that are carded.  I NEVER found a Shock Trooper at retail :'( and had to get my only one via Ebay...much easier to just paint my own.

Yeah, I'm w/ya on the #41 CHEW.  But isnt Appo supposed to be the commander?  or is that only in the comics?

Well, maybe there would be some difference between officers and commanders?

 :P

Ah, officers, yeah that is posible; the pre-black uniforms of the Empire.
