That comic was written long before ROTS was out, I'm assuming, so it's othing to worry about. Plus...It's EU. :)

I'm a big EU fan, so I don't disregard it solely for that reason. But you know, it's not all that unusual to see some errors in the comic art. It happens.

Or if you don't buy that, just say he lost his helmet that day and borrowed one from one of his grunts. ;D

Oh man....don't get me wrong...I love the EU, and that particular issue of Republic was fantastic IMO, but there are some things you just have to take with a grain of salt.

Judging from the looks of Commander Thire, and from the fact that the clone in Bly's legion with the macrobinoculars is the only one shown like that, I'd say that we do know that, Scott.
Wut do u mean judging by the looks of Commander Thire? Commander Thire is a commander of shock troopers

Yeah but the original rumor was that the commander #33 was "Commander Thire".  People were just applying a spare commander name to that figure.  But now the official site has said that the #33 figure was supposed to be Bly, but it was changed to yellow to better fit Felucia.  Gentlemen, buy your yellow paint if you haven't already.

Nicklab, which one is Bly again?   :-*  Just clownin'.   :-X

Hasbro could just make everyone happy are rerelease the Red commander with yellow paint.  Just a thought.  It can't be to difficult.  Eh, they will say get your own paint.

Whatever dude.  The reason for the back and forth on this was because there were too many bits of conflicting information from Lucasfilm floating around regarding the character.  The Databank is as close to canon as you're going to get and I'm content with that as a reasonable explanation.

The interesting thing that was revealed in the Commander Bly databank entry was the Behind the scenes page.  It finally explained why the Official Site's Cargo Bay has the Clone Commander, figure #33, listed as Commander Bly by posting this image:

Could very easily happen, I agree.  I think it very well might someday too.  We all know Hasbro likes to get their mileage if they can...  With the OTC format coming back, it's a possibility.

For the record, I did some editing so that the Replied to title of the thread didn't read as, "Re: Evolutions Assortment" anymore.  That just was confusing.

Ummm isn't that happening with the Evolutions Clone set? They included a yellow Clone Commander to represent the ROTS era trooper.

Ah, yeah, that's right.  The one Clone is a Commander in yellow...  I think.

Not quite. I believe the ROTS gold clone is infantry from the same legion, not Commander Bly himself. The paint apps on the helmet are a little different.

However there is an AOTC-era gold commander in the set.
