I'm digging it immensely actually, and how it matched up nice to the ARC 3" Titanium ship.  I'll get a set but I really doubt I army build it (if it's abundant).  It'll likely be a one-purchase-pony deal for me just for some elite pilots among my grey/black pilot army.

I was so against this but the clones actually turned out pretty neat (love the eyes on the helmets) and I'm a sucker for droids, so... sigh.

I'll pick up a set as well, mainly for the droid - but the clones aren't too bad either.

Yeah, anyone want the clones and NOT the droid? Although I wouldn't mind having to buy the whole set since the Clones are nice.

I need two sets. But not the second droid. So I'm totally open to trading/selling the droid. I'll also have one extra pilot figure to if anyone wants just one.

So that would give me the 3 pilots needed plus 4 grunts and the one astro droid (again with the other droid and 4th Pilot to be traded or sold).
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

Nicely done, but again, too many EU clone creations. Too bad it works. :-X

I can't stand the clone pilot mold.  The swivel cut elbows don't work for me.  Literally - the lower arms have a habit of detaching from the upper arm.

These colors don't do much for me, so I'm going to pass on this set.  As others have said, I've got way too many non-movie clones as it is...

Non-movie clones can be all right, but this paint scheme just looks like ass. Definite skip.

What the hell's the background there?  Very odd... 

I still dig it too Robo-Quack.  To me it's not outlandish and goes with the fighter it's based on.  They ahve the fighter out already, so why not, right?  To me it only makes sense because of the ship though...  Had they done this without it, I'd be at least curious as to WHY they'd do it...

The astromech even matches the astro on the 3" Titanium ARC Fighter with the teeth/eyes.  I think it's kind of neat to tie the two together like that.

Jesse, I assume you mean the background of the box, which looks to be an overturned and blown up AAT.

Yeah, the package's background...  That's an AAT overturned and blown up?  Hmmm...  Little tough to make out for me.  Interesting choice I guess.
