I would guess it's removable to help them add/subtract different belts/kamas as needed so they can re-use the Clone legs.

Or maybe it's more removable than intended since it's an early/leaked figure?

Jeff has a good point and is probably right on the mark. Speculation makes me wonder though, if it might be a good way to add on other accessories: backpack, jetpack, heavy rocket launcher, grappling hook launcher, etc...time will tell.

Gotta admit those clones look good, but I think it's the weathering on them that I really like.

Chewie, I feel the same way about the Force Unleashed troopers. It makes them look like hardened warriors, don't you think?

I do like those troopers too... I just wish they had a bit more weathering... I might have to do a little work on mine.   :)

Very cool look at the AT-TE.  I guess for the price tag, you should get that much playability from the toy.  Off to the left looked like new Falcon and may be the sticker sheet for the AT-TE?  I'm still saving up for this guy.

Just saw about 8 of these in a "dump" in the middle of an aisle at a Wal-Mart, with electronic blasters on the other half.  $99.96 a pop for the AT-TE.

I assumed so as well, but figured I would check.  The Pittsburgh guys have been finding stuff early lately as well, so one can always hope its closer to home!

Wait, WHAT???

That's news to me. I haven't seen any CW stuff. The only thing that I know of reported by we Pittsburgh guys has been the cheapo printed materials, not any of the toys.

I WISH I could find this stuff early. I don't want to have to scramble for this stuff on 7/26. I just hope merchandise at my TRU is plentiful and that they keep things organized. I plan on being there EARLY so it shouldn't be a problem. However, you never know when some over zealous fan or scalper may push you aside to get to the toys.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

Yeah I think you got fed some misinformation Jman...  That or someone is finding stuff and not sharing. :P

Hell, we don't even have much 30th stuff at some stures anymore.  I know my nearby WM's depleted of just about everything when less than a month ago the pegs were full.  Not sure why that happened or how, but our stores are starting to run dry.
