Just wanted to mention that the #41 SA Clone does NOT have the same body as the Clone Wars SA Clone Trooper... 

Like Scott said, #41 Clone is much closer to #6 Clone in terms of Sculpt than to the Clone Wars SA Clone...

However, the Target Clone Trooper is the Clone Wars SA body with an Ep3 Head...


Thanks for the great info Jeff!  You answered a lot of questions I was going to pose.

My Canadian supplier of the EE clones has said they'll probably be another week or two before they arrive, but has assured me I'll get them.  By the sounds of it, I won't be disappointed when they do arrive.   :)

I like these EE sets, although the "get one of each type" option isn't available right now.  I'm sure that'll change soon.

Thought I'd bump this topic to see what everyone thinks after we've had some time to find a couple of these (literally).

I hear some people prefer the #6 clonie because he doesn't have the antenna nor the battle damage.

I haven't had time to compare the two extensively, I just know the #6 clone has the quick draw action which may hinder specific poses.

But you certainly can't beat the 14 points of articulation on the SA clone, I will have to count the number of points good ol #6 has tonight....

Overall, they are almost on even ground with me.  I suppose I sort of like the #41 clone better because of the "super articulation", but the #6 one isn't that much worse in that department.  Plus, it has the more "normal" appearance without the battle damage and antenna.  I finally saw some #41s at retail last week, and did end up picking up another one.  I have 4 of the #6 clones now, and 3 of the #41, and I think I will likely stop with that.  Part of that being just because the white clones really didn't show up much in the movie, so the ones I have are enough for now.  Overall, they are both nice figures, and I'm happy that we got these.  Compared to the clones we got for AOTC (preview and red version), these are so much better.  And to think that movie was actually called "Attack of the Clones" ;).  With these two versions though, I don't think you can go wrong.  Both are pretty nice figures.

I really like the #41 for the articulation.  I have him scaling a wall with the #33 Commander at the top helping him.  Looks pretty cool!   ;D

I like both of these Clones.  The #6 Clone was excellent and I would have been happy with just that offering, however I really like the #41 Clone as well.  I would say that I like the #41 more than the #6 Clone, but that's only because of the lack of the action feature and the added articulation in his torso.  My only (very minor) complaints with the #41 are the fact that you can see the neck-ball-joint for his neck as well as the addition of the antenna on the back (which seems pointless to me).  I would have much rather had a removable helmet like the #38 or something like that.  As it stands though, these clones are great and I recommend picking up lots of each if you haven't already (yeah right) :P

^^ I actually like the ball joint neck on the #41, it makes the head easier to move. You can hardly move the head of the Target Clone.

I like both the #6 and #41, but I like 41 just a little bit better. Both are great, the #6s large shoulders and action feature are made up for with the ball joints and the inclusion of both Clone weapons. #41 loses points for not having the Rifle and having the antennae (sp?), but those are very minor flaws. IMO, both are great for army building, I currently have 5 #6 and 4 #41 (I'm a small army builder :p).

I liked the #6 Clone and I knew that one would be easier to find the #41, so I bought ten of the first one.

I'd like ten of #41, but apparently so does everyone else, so it's not very easy to get ahold of.

#41 is better overall but the helmet sculpt (face part) is better on #6.  At least on most of them.

BTW, if I was king of Hasbro for a day I'd make every single Clone version that was in the movie in spades!  That's right I'd make GOBS of them and suckers like me would brake their bank buying up every last blue and yellow stripped clone and I'd be waiting for the stores to open to get at the Shocktrooper version.

How could I forget the shoulder pads on #6?  They are a little too big and I don't care for the removable feature - too easy to lose.

The "wall" just so happens to have grafitti that resembles the large BK cup.  ;D

I personally prefer #41, however...

He doesn't have the rifle.  That's his one major drawback to me.

I love the Antenna...  Every squad needs a comm specialist so that's what I use the Antenna for (every like 12th figure wears the apparatus).  The articulation is superior, so I can pull some better poses.  I think the sculpt looks better too.

That said, #6 shines in several ways...  First, he does have the rifle (and the carbine), which makes him a great figure in and of itself.  Second, his sculpt's not bad in the slightest...  The shoulder pads look barely different than #41's if you ask me.  Third, my #6 troops can pull off a kneeling pose better than any SA Trooper I own (VOTC Stormie included).  Gotta have some guys take a knee in combat dioramas.

To me, I'm equally happy with the figures for different reasons...  The battledamage on #41's doesn't bug me in the slightest either.  It resembles light scratches to me.  Clean grunts are nice too.  I'd take 50 more of both I think...  Then 50 of various unit colors/helmet designs as well.

It's amazing how we can't get an ultimate clone. Both are very excellent, but both have features, all of which have been mentioned, that subtract from perfection. I'm just glad that both are good enough to do some army building with. If I have to give an edge, it's to #41 due to added articulation and slimmer shoulders.

Exactly, while the SA Clone is a great figure, it could be made better if it utilized aspects from other figures. Namely the inclusion of the long rifle that the QD Clone has, along with the ball-jointed hips that the AT-TE Gunner has. The latter especially since it would allow the SA Clone to kneel more properly as JJ mentioned.
