"I'm ready to slap someone for giving him a removable helmet..."
Well then, slap many of the people on these furums who asked and asked and asked for removable helmets. Hasbro's only doing it because collectors wanted it.
I hate the removable helmets on ROTS clones, because Hasbro hasn't done as good with them... I know some people want them, but so far they've done a poor job on the ROTS removable helmets. Same thing happened with the TAC Stormtrooper...
Just look how much larger this helmet is on a clone -
Then how much better it looks here -
It's just like any other figure parts when there's more than one version of something made... to me the removable helmets are a step back on ROTS clones (except for Cody - to adjust, they reduced the size of his head itself so they didn't make an oversized helmet... another example is the Combat Engineer - cool figure, but the helmet really looks too big and also with that grade of plastic they seem to lose a lot of the details in the sculpt (not to mention the painting is never as precise) -
Anyways, I'm sure you guys have seen these close ups but just in case -
It almost looks like Gree is a kitbash of three different figures -
Almost like somehow the compressed these parts togther for a mock-up -
helmet - ROTS AT-TE Gunner or maybe even the ROTS Combat Engineer?
arms - ROTS Quick Draw Clone
torso - ROTS SA Clone
legs - ROTS Quic Draw Clone
If you look closely you can see the belt is positions the correct way (rather than upside down like the SA Clone).
Maybe it's just an AT-TE Gunner clone with modifications, but the waist kind of looks ball jointed from Hasbro's preview. And the belt piece definitely does not look sculpted on, but rather a separate piece like the SA Clone.
This is probably the last time they make a Gree (other than repacks) so I'm hoping it's a good figure.
