I'm genuinely surprised to see the lack of enthusiasm for the clone re-paints. I guess there is such a thing as too much. :P

Part of me is too, but part of me isn't as well Anton... 

I guess though when the Shadowtrooper, which by all intents and purposes was probably one of the shorter production run Clones in the modern line, actually sat and pegwarmed many places and even saw clearance...  Well, I guess the non-film Clones don't have the legs if you push them too hard too fast, and that could be a problem with these ones.

For me, I like them but I'm a big fan of how ROTS was presented and I liked the Clone flavors and I like things not necessarilly in the films but which are believable off screen.  I thought some of the paintjobs on these looked outstanding, plus they're pre-production work too technically.

For me I dig them but I really think it's the kind of figure(s) that polorizes collectors.  I think you'll find those that love it, and those that hate it, with not a whole huge grey area.  Whether those groups buy or not is a whole other question of course.  I think though that if it's not in the movie your odds will increase of finding it in quantity so long as it's not distributed like crap...  If it is, then anything can happen and even the biggest douche of a figure can be a pain to find...  Swimming Jar Jar and Sio Bibble anyone? :)

Personally, I've liked that one ever since I got the EPISODE III Visual Dictionary.  It's featured prominently in that book even if it never made the screen.  Also, I never saw the previously released version of this Clone sitting for long (from the ROTS Deluxe line - Clone Trooper 3-packs).

Well these repaints are no worse than the Green Commander and Black clonepilot variants.  Or those SWShop.com and Target exclusive clonetroopers.  I don't have a problem with the repaints at all.  Plus they look better, IMO, than the purple set with Mace coming up soon.

I like the exclusives at the end the most. I'm glad they're WM exclusives... If it were target it would be 10$ a figure that I would never see on the shelves anyway. Being at WM... I'll see alot of them, I never have a problem finding WM exclusives in my neck o' the woods...errr ah desert that is.

I'll take every one, except the two holos, Maul, and Chewie.

What a tasty line up!

At least they could of given Kit Fisto some more articulation. The articulated ankles just don't cut for me to buy another one.
I remember my dream now.

Take away Chewie, Maul, Aurra, and the holos and you got yourself a great line.  Can't wait to pick up Nabrun Leeds & Kabe, Labria, & Kitik Keedkak to almost complete my cantina.

It's a clone, clones NEVER warm, it's a fact of life. :P

having some problem with the base on the clones. 
#57 & 59 are the SA ROTS #41 VERSION
#60 looks like it could be the same just without the antenae or it could be the CW version
#64 looks like it could be SA or the CW version by looking at the belt, but the arms almost almost look like the swivel gunner arms.
#69, while my favorite number  ;D, I'm totally stumped on.

I think...

- #57 & #59 - yeah definitely the ROTS #41 Clone (based on the Antenna)
- #60 is the Clone Wars Version (like from the EE Multi-Packs)
- #64 is based off the ROTS #33 Commander Sculpt
- #69 is based off the ROTS #38 AT-TE Sculpt (based on those arms and the lack of antenna)

At least that's what I remember someone saying from SDCC.

Now that there's a picture up, I think I can finally say what's of interest to me:

56 - Holographic Commander Cody
57 - Clonetrooper 442nd Siege Battalion
58 - R5-A1
59 - Clonerooper 5th Fleet Security
60 - Clonetrooper Sergeant
63 - Holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi 
64 - Clone Commander Appo
65 - Kashyyk Scout Trooper
67 - Darth Vader's R2 Droid- I need more Astromechs, bring it on.
68 - Arena Padme
69 - Clonetrooper (yellow markings)  74 - Maces R2 unit 

I might be convinced on a few more down the road depending on whether they are improvements on the older versions.  Padme needs a new head for me to buy.  Presumably Kit Fisto is just a re-release of the CW non-animated version, so I don't need another.

If Hasbro changes the head I'll buy it, if not there's no way in hell I'll buy that peanut head.

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?
