Your Favorite Clone Color/Design?
« on: April 28, 2006, 03:50 PM »
Although we had several armor differences, the troops in the OT were basically all of the black and white variety - something we definitely didn't see in the prequels, ROTS in particular.  Anyways, of the different designs we saw in this movie (and AOTC) which one(s) were your favorites?  Or would you have preferred to see them all in black and white like the classics?

Although I like several of the colors (there are a lot), I think the Shocktroopers are consistently my favorite.  They look pretty cool, and I almost think that color could have transferred into the OT to some extent with the Emperor having his own Stormtroopers signified by the red markings.  Not that I want those inserted into future releases (no more changes please), but that might have worked.  I thought Gree and his Kashyyyk (BARC) troops were pretty nice too, as well as the Mygeeto clones - but a lot of that is because I like the Biker Scouts and Snowtroopers they are based on. :)  Which are your favorites?

My top favorite...

Bacara's armor. It just looks so cool, and my theory is that it was prototype Snowtrooper armor. Other favorites:
-Galactic Marine (Cold Weather Gear)
-41st Scout Armor
-Shocktrooper Armor

The BARC Troopers on Kashyyyk were probably my favorites...  The Scout's armor has always been a design I liked, and seeing it used on some kind of specialist group in camo is kind of neat.

I thought the Clone designs in ROTS were nice though...  A different time and all that.  Clones being given individuality by their Jedi leaders...  It tied in with the notion of "emotional attachment is forbidden" among Jedi really well I feel, and it's one of those little things that just got glossed over.  The Jedi grew a bond with their Clones, as we see with Obi and Cody, only to have that trust and closeness be betrayed wwithout them having the foresight to see it coming.

It's really no different than Obi-Wan being blind to Anakin's thoughts and emotions...  His "love" for Anakin never lets him see what Anakin is truly able to do.

So the different colors, to me, really represent that different time of individuality among even those who have none. 

Come time of the classic trilogy I'm of the breed that feel they're no longer Clones...  Individuality is now supressed by the uniform, though it's there underneath.  The irony of that really sits well with me.  That Clones strove for individuality, and expressed it with names and unique looks, but yet in the Empire's army the military is only individual under the armor...  On the outside they now appear the mindless drones their Clone predecessors supposedly were.  That's deep to me.

I love Bly's design and colors, and of course who doesn't love the Shocks and Tac Ops?!

Good stuff.

Nice way to break the monotony of the classic white armor.

You have to wonder if it wasn't done intentionally to sell more toys.... ;)

I'm agreeing with 212th Battalion. Their armor was sweet.

Coming close is the AOTC ranked Clones, my favorite being the lt.
