Very nice looking figure indeed. Nice to see real movie clones make the cut.

I really like this figure. Now that he's been shown, I've decided to skip that Mace Windu set since the purple clones are rather silly, and I can just get the orange version in '07. I'm going to try to get three of these soldiers, since I am trying to get the exact number of troops seen on both the Utapau Trooper and Commander Cody cardback scenes for my Utapau Invasion Force.

I also skipping the Mace Battle Pack. I was only going to get it because of the Airbourne Clone, but now the right version is coming, so no rush on Mace Battle Pack, look for it in the Clearance aisle.

I hope to pick up a couple of these as well, and it looks like a pretty nice figure overall.  I really liked the designs fo the various clones in ROTS, and it is actually pretty impressive how many different clonetroopers we've been getting since last year and now into next year.  Good stuff.

I am also not that keen on the non movie clones. The Green are ok, they look very Utapau but the Blue stripe ones..zzzzzzzz. I will buy 1 of those just to have one.

The airbourne I will probally go for 2-3, very cool indeed. It would be great if he cam with a PVC dying clone trooper accessory to tend to.

Looks sweet. I'm into 2 or 3 to augment Cody's troops. I'm passing on the lame Purple Nurple Squadron, though, that's for damned sure.

Absolutely.  Especially now that I know I don't have to buy these and repaint them.  That Mace Battle Pack is retarded.  A bunch of off-screen EU clones, the Parjai trooper (but the wrong color), and a Mace figure that is a bad likeness, wrong proportions, and about 1/2" too short.

Knowing this is coming out on a card has saved me a bit of money, as I now have no desire nor reason to pick up the Mace BP.  It's not film accurate, and the purple just looks silly.  I'm not hatin' on the Green and Blue Clones from the basic figure line, since they are  based on conceptual art, but the Mace BP Clones just scream "The guy who used to run the GI Joe RAH line with all the repaints runs SW now!"

That said, I'll buy my one Utapau Airborne Trooper and be happy with that. :)

I will certainly buy 2 of these.  I actually like these better than the regular clonetrooper and Commander Cody.

I agree with you on that...  The armor was unique and really stood out.  These guys I actually sort of missed in my first couple viewings of ROTS but after a while they popped out at me and just seemed intriguing looking compared to the regular troopers.

I love what Hasbro did with the sculpt too...  The pack (if it comes with the basic trooper) with a pocket for the pistol, all the gear he seems to have...  They're a unique figure amongst the sea of Clones we've gotten in all their various flavors.

Part of me wonders if this isn't also why there's some disappointment in the Kashyyyk BARC Trooper being a repaint and inaccurate sculpt.  The unique look fo those troopers (even though they are still clones) was appealing I think to collectors...  Getting away from the basic style armor. 

I'll happily add many of these Airborne Clones to my troopers next year though.  The one in the Mace pack looks amazing.
