Yeah - I've never really liked the laying-down clone sculpt either.

If they needed a third "pose" why not have the clone standing at attention like at the end of AOTC when they're all lined up to start loading the transports. To me THAT would be a better pose then laying on the ground.

Not really disagreeing, I never noted any lying down during the movie, but this pose isn't that unusual, just unsuitable. 

Way back in the day, we used to get generic army figures in multiple poses, zero articulation.  This guy is a hold over in someone's mind for a sniper from a bygone era.  I probably get more of a kick out of it because it simply reminds me of old toys that I used to play with as a kid.

That said, the sheer expendability of clones in AOTC has always bugged me.  I realize they are clones, but were their minds turned off completely.  Some of the battle formations must have surely resulted in multiple casualties from friendly fire.  If one or two were actually bright enough, I think they might have lived a fair bit longer than their compatriots leading the front edge of the charge. ;)

Just what we needed clones lying down on the job.  Not happy will Yoda be.

Whoa, slow down there, grandpa! ;)

Just because someone at Hasbro has nostalgia for the days before that newfangled "articulation" was invented doesn't mean we should bring back the old toys. What's next, a tin wind-up Darth Vader and a stick-horse speeder bike?

You mean I haven't told you about the old SSP racers I used to own? :P 

Grandpa indeed. :D

I'd like to go on the record as saying that I have met Morgbug, and he is not as old as he would have you all believe!

Granted, he's not as young as Gregg, but still.

He must have left his cane at home the day you met him.   ;)

The clones in this set are far too skinny.  Especially the arms.

I heard yet another rumor today where a guy found a clone 3 pack with only one of the clones colored. ???

Was that the only clone in the set with markings? I thought there was going to be (different) markings on all three clones.

Did you happen to catch the rotation number on the box Rob?


FYI, according to EE, one of the wave 3 revisions will have 2 clone 3packs per case. Makes sense.

I'll know for sure tomorrow when I pick it up off layaway. Im sure it was just the standing clone that had the red markings.

As for the box it coming out of I don't know. There were a bunch of empty cases boxes. I do know that it was the same ratio as the regular white ones. 1 Yoda, 1 Vader Rebuild, 1 Stass, 1 Clone 3 pack and 1 Spider Droid. They were the only ones from wave 3 there.
