It's tough to compare other army builders to the ROTS Clone though... How many cases has he reshipped in now? Wave 2, 3, 4, 5, 6... How many VC figures have shipped like that? How many previous army builders shipped like that?
I get why Hasbro wanted to include him, but he was A) barely in the movies really (the only ones I can even think of were the gunners on the ship in the beginning, I think), and B) he's got his Legends comrade right beside him for less money and more ****.
I just think he was a poor choice of figure, but Hasbro wanted a plain vanilla clone on the ROTS card. One wave, maybe 1 reship, but no more. I don't believe at all that the yellow helmet hurt him, or side-by-side inspections, or whatnot.
I see the AOTC Clone out of Wave 4, more than any other figure from that wave. That doesn't mean it's a ****** figure, it just means the rest are just doing a little better and we've had AOTC Clones steady since 2007. It's a good figure and Hasbro should just moderate his release a little, roll him out again in the future, etc.
The orange decoed ROTS clone is the same figure. We have seen plenty of him in my area, and he's not stagnated even remotely the same as the plain white one. That's your difference. Recognizability from the movies, and a lack of direct competition. The yellow helmet didn't bog him down, the look of the sculpt... He's sold very steadily. Likewise, the 501st and 41st Legion troopers on Legends cards never backed up like the plain white ROTS Clone did.
