That whole chin hanging from the helmet can get old.

Usually, turning the head around (in the helmet) will take care of that.

So if I have every clone alread released, do I need this set? 

In other words, does this set contain a new clone that I don't already have (from previous Evolution sets, single figure releases, etc.)?

The jury still seems to be out on whether all those Felucia Clones are straight Evolutions repacks or if some of them are #33 Clones painted like Bly's grunts or some other form of kitbash.   :-\

Sure looks like there are at least some pauldron differences going on in there, but the picture quality isn't good enough to tell and when you add in Hasbro's recent track record with early battle pack pics having errors in them, who knows?   ???

Yeah the Pauldrons may have some variations...  Otherwise I'm assuming the most you'd see are paint differences.

What gets me is it looks like the guys on the back of the box are all evo Clones...  They have the ammo packs on the bicep anyway I think.  I honestly hope that's the case, the Evo did have waist articulation afterall which is a plus.  I'll deal with the chins.

I've found I can hide the chin just by tilting the head up so I really think I'd rather the Evo sculpt at this point...  Either way I'm not upset, except if we don't get the final version of Bly...  I never did see that variation.

What a terrific and wonderful waste of money :o

I'm dissapointed in this set..I wanted a creature or something new out of it.
This is an exclusive??! Then where is the NEW item Hasbro promised us for exclusive BP's? Oh, are they considering repaints as new items now? In that case I guess ALL the BP's offer something new then :P.

I guess this set has been found in Sacramento.

Jeez, I think I can skip this set.  From the looks of it, I already have these figures.

Makes for a nice boxed set though...if you're into that sort of thing.

That's a pretty sweet looking set.

I ran the DCPI for this battle packl that I posted in the DCPI thread.  The number's valid even though the store I went to didn't have any in stock.

I'd definitely like to see some loose pics of this set, considering the confusion about the troopers.  It's definitely odd that they would retool the Clone Commander for the generic Clones, but then I guess the Evolutions Clone is expensive to manufacture.

I've been checking the DPCI numbers for this and the Ilum set at my local Target ever since they first surfaced back in October...  :-[

They obviously haven't had any sets, but it hasn't kept me from punching in the numbers, you know - just in case.   :P
