Will these still mix in well with the Preview Clone?

Anyone worried that the paint jobs on the different colored Clones might not be too great?

 :P

Good questions Chewy.  I just got the three pack during the week.  And right now, I'm comparing them to one of my preview Clone Troopers.

Obiviously, there's the cosmetic paint differences, with the Preview Clone Trooper being dirty, and the 3-Pack Clones being clean.  Aside from that, one of the biggest differences?  A slight paint difference on the helmet (on the mouth grill, and a ring around the top/back), backplate, and stomach sections of the armor.  The preview Clones have some grey detail paint on those sections, while the 3-pack Clones are all white.  I think they're still fairly interchangeable.  But I think the clean Clone Troopers will fit in better in dioramas with the Clone Trooper Pilot and Clone Trooper (red trim) because those versions are also clean.

Thank you for that info, I was definitely wondering about it. :)

BTW, is there much difference in sculpt quality?

 :P

The sculpts are pretty good.  The waist/utility belts aren't the greatest, but it's in large part because of the nature of the poses.  Everything else in the sculpt is great IMO.

Well, I thought that maybe the Clone Troopers had some kind of neck ball joint...nope!  It turns out that the Clone Trooper helmets are mounted much like the ones on the bootleg Clone Troopers.  They'll pop off if you try, but thankfully go back on pretty easily, too.

Thanks for the info Nicklab.  I'm really looking forward to getting these...

...I've looked on ebay, but the prices are a joke right now.  One guy  from NY has 2 of the Clone 3-pks for a $30 "buy it now" option, and I was considering it, until I saw that he charges $12 for shipping to anywhere in the states.  Hello, shipping should be about half of that!!

Just be patient.  I've managed to get two sets so far.  It all has come down to luck lately.  But I think they'll show pretty soon at retail.

I have YET to see anything with "Clone Wars" on the packaging in my area.  It's very frustrating, let me tell you.   >:(

Picked up a Clone 3 pack in Atlanta yesterday - very cool set, even though the guns are perminately in their hands. All white clones, I really wanted a Yellow/Green/Blue, but oh well.

Also saw the Droid 3 pack but passed cause the paint job was so poor.

From everything that's been seen so far, it seems that the ranked Clone Troopers aren't going to hit until the Jedi Army 3-Pack starts shipping in the new  case assortments.

Are you serious?!?  That's the first I've heard of that.  I don't understand why Hasbro would have done it that way.  The guns can't be taken out of their hands whatsoever?   :-\

Yes, the weapons are SCULPTED to the hands. The articulation on all the figures are at the Arms and Head, and waist, the waist articulation is hidden under the armor, which is cool.

Only if you have the skills of a surgeon with an exacto knife.   ;D

The guns are only sculpted to the trigger hand. The other hand is not.
Yeah at first I did not even notice this until I opened up my third pack of these guys I wanted to change the guns around and found out that I could not. It is not a big deal to me.

The kneeling Clone Trooper looks great in the forward hatches of the Republic Gunship.
