And I know it will upset some of our members, but I am going to get the usual dozen of the new Target Stealth Clone.
You can have all the ones I'm not buying. :P

I want at least half a dozen 501st, though! Was there a 501st commander in the movie? How many men are in a, what's the term, squad? Batallion? Can't wait to surround Zett and the youglings with these bastards! :D

The 501st commander isn't shown in the movie, but Darth Delicious did post a pic somewhere, I think in the customizing section, of Commanders Appo and Faie.  Appo looks like Gree crossed with a 501st trooper, just picture a 501st trooper with the suspenders and Gree colored eye visor.

EDIT:  Here's Commander Appo of the 501st, courtesy of Darth Delicious' feverish search:


I think the 501st w/ suspenders was supposed to be Gree. Because in the Attactix, it shows Gree but colored blue insyead of green.

Don't base anything off Attactix. They are way off, they show Bly as a red commander and several clones have seperatist logos and are listed as seperatists. Attactix is easily one of Hablows worst lines ever.

What date stamps do you guys have on your AT-RT drivers? My brown has 51571.

And how, again, do you read them? ???

The Wookiees are really getting the shaft. I can't believe we're seeing the crappiest one repainted 3 times. Where's Merumeru? I thought Wookiees would get a lot more attention finally. Of course it doesn't help that were barely in the movie, which came as a surprise. :( I posted a thread in "Dear Hasbro" on RS last night, and no one's even replied yet. Doesn't anyone want more Wookiees...?

Count me in for some more wookiees! The only good wookiee warrior we got was the preview one. Though I don't mind Tarrful, even with his lack of knee articulation.

Me too. I love the guy. They cheesed on articulation, but how can you not love him?

Erm, back to clone discussion.... ;)

Wasn't Merumeru the Preview Wookiee?

And seeing that list makes me think DAMN, we actually DID get some Clones this year. I don't count those 3 pack Clones though, they stink. :P

No, here's Merumeru. He was the one leading the ground forces, the one that stood and raised his staff. I don't remember the name (Gaunta?), but the SP seems to be based on the one in the back, far left in this pic. It's hard to tell with none of their armor or anything on, but note the braids with red bands. In that pic, Tarfful is to his right and that's Merumeru next one over.

Unfortunately the Wookies kind of got the shaft in the movie.  I think that may be one reason we are not seeing more Wookies other than the 2 repainted figures.

The Wookiees did get shafted bigtime.

The #43 is a terrible sculpt, with a horribly "posed" foot that makes standing him a real pain, and his articulation is cut so that sucks as well.

If they made the legs separate at the knee, thus requiring the extra "work", why didn't they make the knees hinged like the Preview figure?  That alone would've been about enough for me to be happy with that figure.

The weapons were weak too though...  The Preview had a nice rifle, but I think the bowcaster deserved more love than a lame-ass feature stuck on it.

I actually dislike Tarrful quite a bit due to the articulation...  He also has a weak paint application compared to others, but whatever.  The articulation was my beef with him.

I would like a resculpt of the #43 which I see as the "in-between" sized Wookiees that lie somewhere between Chewie big and Preview gargantuan. :)  A bit more articulation (at least at the legs anyway) and a nice bowcaster resculpt...  I'd dig that. 

I'm actually into the repainted preview WOokiee though.  I'd take a couple straight re-releases of that figure just repainted.  Even with the same accessories, it'd be nice since it's the better figure.

The preview wookiee is easily in my top 5 figures all time.  I lost count of how many I have somewhere after 50.  He's right in the wheelhouse with VOTC stormie, Coleman Trebor, Ephant Mon, and POTJ sandie.

And here's my list of Clones that I've been able to find:

III-06 Clone Trooper (v1 - White)
III-33 Clone Commander (v1 - Red)
III-38 AT-TE Gunner
III-41 Clone Trooper (v1 - White)
III-49 Commander Baccara (v1 - Maroon)
Target Exclusive Clone Trooper
III-34 Clone Pilot (v1 - Gray)

What's that rolling across the floor at my feet? Oh yeah, the ball Hasbro dropped on good Clone choices and distribution! And where the hell is Commander Cody? What in God's name is Hasbro's reason for NOT giving us a Commander Cody in the ROTS line? Damn! The guy even had a speaking role and camaraderie with one of the main characters of the film!!!

Sorry to keep veering in the direction of Wookiee discussion, but I agree with that! One of the best figs ever!

Back on the subject of clones, I'm getting pretty impatient for the Jedi killers. I think I'm gonna pass on the Temple Assault guys, though. I'm pretty tired of the quick draw body.
