Saga-064 Commander Appo the army builder
« on: September 1, 2006, 01:57 PM »
So basically what we have here is an SA clone #41 501st trooper.  Pop off the head, pop off the pauldron, pop the head back on.

I'll take 20 please.

I remember reading someplace that a few folks were hoping that would be the case when he was revealed at SDCC.  I'm sure glad to see it still looks that way... and especially glad it's not that AT-TE sculpt again.

Yep, take the pauldron off and you get a Comm. Appo. I guess Hasbro thinks all Commanders have pauldrons.  ::)

I was hoping and dreading the same thing. Nice to have this one on one of the two most articulated clone bodies, too bad this is the third try at this figure.

I finally found the Tact Ops Trooper last night at Target.  But then I remember this Appo was coming out soon.  I passed on them last night.  I would just rather have an SA version.  I think they just gave it a pauldron to spice it up a bit and make it different looking that the Tact Ops.  No big deal.

You do know the pauldron is removable, right?

Yeah, I noticed some people at other sites getting upset about the pauldron as well.  I assume it's removeable like all the other pauldrons?  Unless you are a carded collector I don't see what the problem is?  Maybe a Jedi sliced his pauldron off camera or something  ;D

Actually, he is seen wearing that pauldron in a comic book.

...Although I can't seem to find an image of it.

Maybe you mail them to a customizer that needs them?  Or picth them.  Or give them to the homeless!  Just joking around.  Happy it's Labor Day weekend!

That's like me being upset that I have 30 extra sandtrooper backpacks and pauldrons from converting him into dirty VOTC stormies.

Custom fodder is a wonderful problem to have!

So? If you don't need them just throw 'em away.

I'm hoping to get this one in some heavy quantity...  I've been relegated to the figs from a couple K-Mart packs and a lone TE Gunner repaint so this is great for me.  Definitely the army builder of all the repaints that people will clamor for...  I like the pauldron to set it off some and it's something extra, but I think Hasbro was clearly intending this to just be "an excuse" to put the 501st out in a new format and slightly different and a unique character (in theory) that they can X off their list... 

I'll take 30 anyway, if I can find that many.  The way Utie Clones sold though, I just hope this is shipped heavily.
