I can't keep these damn things straight... I'm up to 3 different battle droids versions, 2 different pit droids versions, the shocktrooper, maul, 2 Sandtroopers, Blue Clone, Yellow Clone, Dark Trooper, Saesee Tiin... Still looking for another Pit Droids or two? Another Sandtrooper or two... an SA 501st if that ends up happening, the Red clone...
This crap is out of hand.
I hear you on that Rob, and this is my understanding of what's out (but I'm not positive on what's COMING out)
-3 Battledroid Variants (Commander & Grunt-Cream, Shot/Sliced-Red, Shot/Sliced-Cream)
-3 Pit Droid Variants (Cream w/Grey Markings, Cream w/Orange Markings, Reddish-Brown Overall Color)
-4 Clone (AOTC) Officer Variants (Gold, Green, Red, Blue)
-4 (as of now) Sandtrooper variants (Orange Pauldron w/Dirt Spray, Grey Pauldron w/Heavy Dirt Paint, White Pauldron Clean, Black Pauldron Clean)
Indeed it's out of hand though. The Green Clone was unnecessary at the moment since he was out last year. I'd say nix the gold commander too but that's me. Black Pauldron Sandtroopers seem unnecessary to me too, since last year's figure. I like the clean white trooper though because it's good for a stormtrooper and gives you pauldrons for your potential army from last year to mix some up.
And there's the Evolutions/E3 Clone Officer "variant' that has a clone rifle and one with the big sandtrooper rifle.... Technically, that wasn't an intended variant by Hasbro though, they screwed that up. Yet there is no variant on this figure with the film-accurate yellow markings for a Felucia Clone... Go figure.
