My prediction is that after this new set with the one red and two whites, we'll get a couple more similar sets, with one green and two whites, and then one blue with two whites.

AND THEN...  We'll get the set with all three colored Clones together.  That's the way Hasbro would make the biggest killing.  If they sell off the red, green and blue individually, one at a time, we'll all buy at least one or two of those sets just to stay "complete".  Then, they'll hit us with the multi-flavored pack that we'll just buy more of.  If they do the all-white pack and the all-colored pack straight off the bat, then we'd only need to buy those two sets to be complete (as far as loose figures go), instead of going out and buying all FIVE sets.  Think about it...  :-\

Granted, loose completists could lay off a fifth set of all colored Clones if they had the first four, but packaged completists couldn't.  But an all colored Clone set (as openers) would sell well regardless just for army building/diorama purposes.

Either way, it's gonna be totally aggravating, I'm sure.  More sets on the way, no doubt.

This sucks. I don't even remember those clones from the movie

That's because they weren't in there, except for the white one.  And that was brief.

Where did the plain whites appear, anyway?

I noticed them in at least 2 places for a few seconds:

1.  On the gunship that Mace, Yoda, and ObiWan are sitting on.

2.  Manning the guns on the big cruisers during the opening space battle.

I think they're dead on the ground when Obi and Yoda discover the dead younglings on the floor.

Aren't there a bunch of white clones walking around in the scene with Tarful in Coruscant?
You are never alone when there's a clone.

Those clones actually have grey shoulder armor and grey shins/boots.

I found the 3 pack tonight with the standing clone decked out in the red polka dots, and the crouching and laying clone all white.  I picked it up, looked at it, and put it back.  Then I grabbed a crab droid and spider droid to buy.

The clone 3 packs are crap people, let's face it.  The 2 paint designs they threw in don't appear in the movie.  The arms are twigs (what's up with that?)  And on top of that, I find #6 and #41 clones every time I go to a store.

Now if the color variants in the clone 3 packs were Cody's Utapau legion, Coruscant red shock troops, or blue 501st temple raid, I'd probably suck up the skinny arms and funny helmet sculpt and buy some.

But these things are c-r-a-p crap.

Couldn't agree more, but they are still going to sell like hot cakes though. :P

Next time pick them up and I'll make it worth your time.

When the Target clones hit, I was very concerned that I wouldn't find any, but luck was on my side and I did. It's weird, but I have a feeling these are going to be even tougher to track down then those, especially since I can't hit stores in the morning.
