Yes,Hasblo says they have no new plans RIGHT now. In 3+ years we'll probally be getting a new one. Hasblo knows clones of any kind fly off the pegs the moment they hit there (except GB clones). We'll be seeing new versions of clone dissapointments like Gree, Cody, Bacara or this guy before Hasbro's rights expire.

I myself highly doubt that. In fact, I doubt that they'll EVER retool it to fix the minor inaccuracies.

But, that's just my opinion.

I think they will Roton, they do want to make money. At this point, they know they're going to sell this guy as an army builder and a year or two down the road when they retool him, they'll sell that many more. It's win, win as far as Hasbro's concerned.

I think the real kick in the nuts is the fact that we paid $10-12 for the exact same sculpt just a few months ago.

Things like this and the Shuttle piss me off to no end.

Which basicaly is a confession that we were being charged between $3 -$5 for a fake vintage card and a plastic blister.

What's everyone's take on the Kashyyyk clone trooper?  I found some this morning at Wally and I kinda dig it.  Is it that different than the movie clone?  These pics show a big difference in the amound of pouches he's got on his belt.

I guess the helmet is the biggest difference?

Yeah the helmet stands out...  from my POV he's still a decent figure and maybe even makes a good OT figure more than a prequal figure, but he's far from perfect and it's disappointing we won't have a truly accurate version fo the Kashyyyk clones, nor Gree, for seemingly quite a while.

So for the army builders out there, how many are you getting.  I know Anton is like myself, in that he assembles squads or platoons of figures.  I usually go for about 32-36 which is a platoon or 4 squads of 8-9 troops.

I think considering that the helmet rebreather and visors are so short vertically, I may just get 8-10 and hope they redo it someday.

What are y'all doing?

Depending how many I find, I could see me snagging a dozen...  My theory is, when a new one is made (and I'm pretty sure it will be) I can just fold these into an OT group of Scouts, maybe a Sniper squad, and buy all new...

The repaint clones I'm really not going ape**** with.  Partly because I can't afford to, partly because I can't find much, partly because they're not film clones.  I could easily see me doing 20 of any given design but not beyond that.  20 would be my maximum and I'd likely fall short of it honestly.
