There milking the Sandtroopers now, whats next the new skittle colored pauldrons.

no their not. all the pauldrons on these figures were in the movies...

Right.  Frankly, I like these a lot more than the skittle colored clone trooper officer redos.  :P

Yeah, if the dots were in the right place there wouldn't have been a problem.  ::)

I agree, I don't really view the Sandtroopers as being "milked".  I'd go so far as to say I'd even take the yellow pauldroned EU one from Jedi Knight (video game) with the Railgun.  The RG was packed with Kyle Katarn's figure...  So the mold's are all there.  The figure would just be a clean deco...  Voila.  I'm a fan though, so my opinion there is clearly biased.

But yeah, I mean they're tweaking the decoes a little, that's fine, and the pauldrons are all appropriate (grey's debateable, but I do believe it exists in a way), so I'm into the Sandtroopers...

I feel the same with the AOTC Clones though.  They could even redeco some battle damaged ones with nice weathering, and I'd be buying.  Some mud deco, some Geonosis red-dirt deco, etc.  I'm in on those...

The Utapau Shadow Trooper, the Covert Ops...  They're "eh" though, and nobody's design but Hasbro's.  Those are a little disappointing to me.  Same as the Evolutions Officer (2nd Version) is nobody's design but Hasbro's unless you used the grey belt I guess, but regardless, I'd have much preferred a movie-accurate Officer, or just repack the Felucia Clone who was quite neat.

Saga Legends vs Original release
« Reply #573 on: January 24, 2008, 08:40 PM »
I hope you guys can help me out.  I am trying to determine which Saga Legends figures are different from their original release. This is what I have so far: (copied from Rebelscum forum)

This is the complete list of figures variants for Saga Legends as known to date. This does not include the packaging variants (stickers, etc.) only the figures:

Battle Droids:
TPM Tan Infantry and OOM-9
AOTC Maroon Infantry Blasted and Slashed
ROTS Tan Infantry Blasted and Heavily Slashed
ROTS Tan Infantry Clean and Lightly Slashed

Pit Droids:
White standing version (new paint, old copyright, 2nd bonus wave)
Maroon standing version (new paint, old copyright, 2nd bonus wave)
Orange standing version (new paint, old copyright, 2nd bonus wave)
White sitting version (new paint, new copyright, 1st bonus wave)
Brown sitting version (new paint, new copyright, 1st bonus wave)
Orange sitting version (new paint, new copyright, 1st bonus wave)

Sandtroopers:
Super Dirty Sergeant white/grey pad (EVO II deco on TSC body)
Dirty Squad Leader orange pad (EVO I deco on TSC body)
Clean Sergeant white/grey pad (TSC body)
Mythical Clean Corporal black pad (TSC body)
Squad Leader orange pad (EVO I deco and body)
Sergeant white pad (EVO II deco and body)

clone officers:
red - high dots
red - low dots
yellow - high dots
yellow -low dots
blue - high dots
blue - low dots
green - low dots
green - high dots

501st Legion Trooper started out as Tank Gunner mold (clean deco), hopefully to be replaced next year with SA ROTS #41 mold, but this is not yet definite.

Also, of note to loose collectors:
1. Darktrooper was not old sculpt, it had new copyright on foot
2. Clone Trooper ROTS is clean, new paint app from original
3. Darth Maul has new face paint app from original
4. Obi-Wan Pilot has different head than original
5. Shock Trooper has new paint app from original



also:
C-3PO (battle droid head) - slight repaint from TSC
Clone Trooper (AOTC) - brighter white from EE exclusive
501st Clone - ROTS had muddy boots
Boba Fett - now has peg holes in feet
Chewbacca - ROTS had yellow highlights
Imperial Officer - POTJ had black eyes, Legends has blue


do you guys know of any others? I've heard possible TC-14 & RA-7?

thanks!

The Sandtrooper pauldrons are either white or grey, but I haven't seen clean grey ones, etc.  Just clean white and black are all I'm aware of.

Nothing I can think of on the RA-7 and TC-14.  They look like their original figures, and I've heard no variant on either of those.

I think the RA-7 deco is slightly different.

Is the second Evolutions version of the Sandtrooper ever coming? I thought Hasbro had been vague on that. They did say they were going to go back and offer the black pauldron TSC body again, but with the Evolutions Clone set featuring the White/Gray Pauldron Sandtrooper shipping again, I find it hard to believe that Hasbro would also package it individually.

I think clear information about the Saga Legends Line has been handled quite poorly by Hasbro. They should have posted a list with all variations and in what cases/waves figures were shipping to help us out.

I'm a bit out the loop lately. Is there still supposed to be a #41 repainted in 501st deco?

There was supposed to be, but as usually, we don't know when/if it's gonna hit now.

Any pictures? I've had a number of non-board members tell me they found the SA mold months ago, and after I told them what to look for, they came back and told me it was the gunner mold after all.
