Man, I really can't wait to get these.  Your reviews have really gotten me to looking forward to these Clones.  Have you taken any pics Nicklab?

Naahh, no pics.  But I bought my 3rd & 4th sets of Clone Troopers yesterday.

I was able to score 3 of these packs today, and I absolutely LOVE these figures!  I really like how the guns are molded to their hands!  I didn't think I was going to like it, but they're cool because they'll never be able to drop their weapons.  They look great, the detail is nice, and my favorite of the three is the only that's squatting on the ground.  I'll have pictures of my stuff posted later tonight.

 ;D

Sweet, I found a set of these too the other day, including the Droid 3-pk.  I got two of each of those. and passed on the Droid Launcher and Jedi Starfighter.  I'm sure I'll end up getting those when money isn't so tight.

I also found the Wat Tambor wave on the same day!!  As well as two more Snowtroopers! :)

Good score.  Post your thoughts on the Clones, Chewy!

Alrighty!

STANDING

I think the Clones are awesome, especially the standing one.  I remember a scene in the movie right when the Clones jump off the Gunships and make time for the Jedi to board, a Clone standing in that exact position firing upon the Droid Army.  I really, really like this figure.

KNEELING

Another great figure, it really adds another dimension to dioramas when some of your army-builders are in a realistic pose such as this.  Great job Hasbro!!

LYING DOWN

Eh, I would prefer another standing Clone in a different position instead, but it's still alright, so I can't complain, especially with how cool the other two Clones are.

I have noticed that it's cool that the heads are easily interchangeable, and the torsos should just pop right off and be able to switch them around too on the different sets of legs to make a larger variety of armies.

4TH CLONE

I seem to remember seeing somewhere a 4th Clone made for this line, I would not be surprised if it replaces the lying down Clone in later waves.

Overall, I give this pack an A+, and want to get at least 10 more of them!  Excellent work Hasbro, except the case distribution should have one more of these and one less Droid Launcher.

That would be great, wouldn't it?   :-*

Yep, it would be awesome.  Way to not use your heads Hasbro!

Anyone know where a link is to a pic of that 4th Clone I mentioned?

Did you guys see the new pics? You're 4th one popped up, holding binocs, and repaints including green versions and red prone. This is going to be a carded/openers tracking nightmare! :) All good though.

Sweet, I saw the pic of the 4th one, but guess what?  The pic I was referring to must be of a 5th Clone!!!

A while back, Bounty Hunter GNT posted a pic of another Clone in a firing position on the Rebelscum forums.  I am 99.9% sure that it is indeed a different Clone than the one shown recently.  

So what are your thoughts everyone on these extra Clones?  I love it!

I caved and cracked open the 1 pack of clones I've found so far yesterday. I love them to death! The lack of articulation really doesn't bother me since they're intended for bulk and they really make it feel like an army. I'd like to see another pack with that 5th clone, as well as more standard white clones without the prone version in it.

It makes me wish they'd maintain a Saga line along the same lines so we can have army builder sets of Stormies.

I need more! More more more!

Looks like we won't be seeing these at Walmart...

...not too sound like a hoarder, but I am going to get as many of these that I see at retail.  

I also want to get a few of the Droid sets and a couple Jedi sets too.

I think 4 of the all white sets is all I'm gonna do.  As for the ranked sets...I'm not sure.  Maybe two of each.

My Clone Army is starting to reach proportions I hadn't fathomed.  Hoo boy!  :o

Didn't Hasbro announce somewhere that there is another single carded white Clone coming out?
