Was the #69 Clone's paint scheme in any of the conceptual art not printed in the books (as in the "line-up" from the issue of the Insider that revealed the new Clone designs before ROTS was released, or even the Visual Dictionary)?† I've looked through the Art of ROTS and the Prequel Chronicles books and can't find the design anywhere.†

So yeah, is this LFL conceptual work or Hasbro conceptual work?

The paintscheme on that Clone seems to most closely resemble the Clone Troopers that were in the WalMart exclusive DVD 3-pack.† But I haven't seen any literature or reference book with that design.† The best source to check might be The Star Wars Chronicles - The Prequels, but it's not widely available as the book sells for around $100.† But even then I doubt that we might see that design in anything approaching a cgi character rendering.

The one figure that REALLY puzzles me in this lineup?  Holo Obi-Wan Kenobi.  I honestly cannot remember seeing Obi-Wan as a hologram in Revenge Of The Sith.  A holographic Anakin would have been a much better choice for a holo figure, especially in light of the scene where Obi-Wan watches the security recordings of Anakin attacking the Jedi Temple.

Yeah, like I said, I checked that book, and no sign.  If this guy is an AT-TE Tank Gunner body with an EU paint scheme, that's really going to save me a few bucks.

Wow, I just caught that poster that Famine posted. Very cool.

Is it me, or does it look like that the 501st commander could be converted into a normal trooper?

The 501st Commander looks more like Commander Bow who took Appo's place after he was killed on Kashyyyk.

#53-62 are up for pre-order at EntertainmentEarth.



1x Darth Maul (Sith Training, Saga #53)
1x Chewbacca (Cloud City Escape, Saga #54)
1x Kit Fisto (Clone Wars, Saga #55)
1x Clone Commander Cody (Holograph, Saga #56)
2x Clone Trooper (442nd Siege Battalion, ROTS green markings, Saga #57)
1x R5-A1 (Imperial Astromech, Saga #58)
2x Clone Trooper (Fifth Fleet Security, ROTS blue striped, Saga #59)
1x Clone Trooper (Sergeant, AOTC green, Saga #60)
1x Super Battle Droid (Kashyyyk, Saga #61)
1x Battle Droid 2-Pack (Kashyyyk, Saga #62)


I have to admit that's a pretty nice case assortment - 1x everything and an extra of each ROTS Clone.†

I'm really glad to see that they weren't dumb enough to pack Maul or Chewie at 2x per case.† †:P

I definitely want at least one of the AOTC clone sergeant. Probably also Cody, and mayyyyybe the two "made-up" clone troopers.

I already have Maul, Chewie, and Kit. I don't really care about the Imperial R5, although it is a cool figure. And the camo droids are just stupid.

The 7th Sky Corps were part of the 212th. Hasbro didn't make up the green ROTS clone. EU did. :P

Just for the record, that is one kick ass assortment to order online.  I'll never find those clones on the pegs so this one is a no brainer to me.

I just wish the last four figures of TSC weren't WM exclusive....that purple droid is going to be murder to track down at Wallyworld.

Hasbro has a nice update today that features 17 of the last 22...

Not much new but nice to get some "official" names for them.

Anyone else notice that this figure is now pictured as a repaint of the Evolution version as opposed to the Tank Gunner show at SDCC? I wonder what the final version will look like.

The only figures I want from the final 22 are R5-J2 (Imperial Astromech), Clone Trooper Sergeant, and R4-K5 (Imperial Astromech). I was thinking about the camo droids, but I don't like them anymore.

I'll pick up the new figures but pass on the re-issues.

2 OT characters, 3 if you want to count Vader's astro.
