3 if you want to count Vader's astro.

You mean the one that was never shown, nor mentioned in the OT? ::)

I count 5 OT figures BTW...

Saga-058 R5-A1 Imperial Astromech Droid
Saga-070 Kitik Keedkak
Saga-071 Nabrun Leeds and Kabe

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.

I dunno. The more I look at this picture, the more it looks like the tank gunner body.

Yeah, but the sculpting on the left arm is what's confusing. The TE Gunner doesn't have that, but Clone Commanders do.

I'm pretty sure that new one is the Evo body, at least that prototype is. The red flag for me is that armband he has, the Evo clones has got it on the same arm there, and the Tank gunner's is bare. The stance on this new one is fairly narrow, also suggesting that it is the Evo body. The shoulders are different too, you can tell they are ball jointed. The belt on the new one appears to be a seperate piece, not sculpted onto the torso like the Tank Gunner's. One last thing, the helmet looks sturdier and a little wider at the base, much like the Evo helmet. After looking at it again I'm now 100% sure it is the Evolution body. I guess we will se whether or not the final product uses it.

Alright, I'll take that back, definitely not the Gunner body. It does look like the EVO once you study the details.

I wonder if this guy will come with any technician stuff? He's not really a technician without some stuff.

To answer my own question from earlier in the thread (as to whether or not the Clone Technician is a Hasbro creation or based on conceptual art), the "Making of ROTS" book has a lineup of several Clone Trooper legion designation variations, and sure enough, the Clone Technician is at the far right of the lineup on page 169.

What's also interesting to note is that, of that lineup, Hasbro has seemingly decided to do the final three on the right (Green, Blue Stripe, and Gold) in the final 22.  The only other in the lineup that hasn't been made (I don't count those horrid deluxe 3 packs) is the Burgundy Dot Clone Trooper.  The other two in the lineup are the 501st Clone and the Saleucami Clone (the Target Exclusive Clone from last summer).  I think that, after this at least, the Clone barrel has been scraped as far as it can go.

Which in my mind means that we should/hopefully will get a Commander Neyo, Commander Faie, an SA Commander Bacara, and a corrected Commander Gree in the next few years, should they need new Clones. :)

Does Cody have ankles? If that's the final product, I'm picking up 2. One for a holo & 1 for a regular Cody. That would be Hasbro to place the good version on the holo. ::)
