And with that, a good comparison pic that Jayson shot:



I think the new one (on the right) looks really bad compared to the old version... glad I have several of the original release of the Utapau clone.  For the premium line that vintage is supposed to be, Hasbro doesn't seem to be putting much effort into the Phase 2 clones.

Boy, seeing that comparison shot, I'd have to agree.  The new one doesn't look all that great compared to the original.  The original Utapau trooper was probably one of the rarest in our area.  I picked up the only two I ever saw, and wouldn't mind having a few more, but I don't know how much I like this new version.  We'll see I guess.  Definitely more detail in that early version, with the dings and scuffs/etc.

I think the new one's helmet isn't as nice, and I think he should have a worn paintjob.  The lack of wear looks awkward.

Beyond that though, it's not a big enough difference to me to say I won't buy a couple.  I won't be stocking up though because I have over 50 of the original ROTS figure and can't justify buying another 50 to replace them.  I'll still probably pick up two, so long as the yellowing thing isn't going on.

Wow.  The helmet on the new 212th Clone looks pretty craptacular.

Oh well.  I can use that clone w/out the helmet for the briefing scene on the Jedi Cruiser with Obi-Wan & Cody as seen here.

The Saga2 one still looks the best! Saga2 had such nice deco ops on the figures and vehicles. Just look at the V-Wing and the Trade Tank. I love that 2006 figure and I would like to get 5 more to have a clean 40.

It really is amazing that the clones in the Vintage line have been such disappointing duds. Imagine if they made the White Clone with battle worn deco and a tighter helmet. It would have turned around that figure like no tomorrow. I hope the Wave 6 Clones change this trend. From the looks of it they will.

The helmet on that trooper is so ugly - the eye lenses looks so oddly proportioned, and the paint job is just terrible.

That clone is going to look fabulous hanging on the peg hooks at TRU for the next 3 years, covered in dust with a $12 price tag hovering above it.

Wow.  That does look really bad.  I wish I had bought more of the Saga2 version.  I wish I had money then!

New pic of the Skiff Master turned up...  

Folks aren't gonna like those elbows shoulders, but I don't mind them terribly.


Clicky to check it out.

Like the deco...  Pretty slick figure.

the elbows?

its the neck or lack there of that is bugging me in this photo.  I am thinking it is just assembled wrong because the other photos we have been shown have not looked like this.

The shoulders always bothered me, but they look much better in this photo. You're right about the neck though. Have to keep an eye on it.

Yeah, he's turned around.  I am really looking forward to this guy, though.  He's been on my Most Wanted list for a long time.

Might have to bore the head out a little to get that to sit better, but overall I like him.

Looks really good, I ordered a couple already from tunghori.  I think a scarf of some sort will look great with it.

I meant the shoulders, sorry.  They're definitely out further than the last proto image seemed to imply from UK Toy Fair.
