I just wanted to chime in here and say that the cockpit that Plo Koon is sitting in in Nick's photo appears to be from one of the ROTS-style Jedi Starfighters and not one of the AOTC style Jedi Starfighters.  The "Making of" book actually has photos of animatics of this scene, and Plo's flying a ROTS style Jedi SF there as well.  At first I wrote off the difference, saying it was an animatic and wasn't a finished shot, but now I'm not so sure.

It seems like either:

1.  LFL screwed up and while we'll see the interior of a ROTS fighter, it will be an AOTC fighter for the exteriors.

or

2.  Hasbro screwed up and didn't think it necessary to correct their mistake.

Very curious.  I guess we won't know until May 19th what the real Plo Koon JSF is.   :-\

Back to the Clones and, particularly, who serves under Stass Allie: didn't Hasbro update with photos of that deluxe wave (with Allie and the Speeder Bike) a few weeks ago, and include something about the planet she was on with the bike?  I'm trying not to look too closely at things at this point, but those of you more knowledgable as to the individual planets the Clones are on might be able to start there.

So, I wonder if the V-Wing actually appears anywhere?

From what I understand, this is the case. And I gather there is some significance to his using the AOTC-style Delta-7 fighter instead of the new Eta-2, but I don't know and don't want to either.

So, I wonder if the V-Wing actually appears anywhere?

It is in the ROTS Incredible Cross-Sections and also visible flanking the shuttle at the beginning of the trailer. Essentially it resembles a scaled-down Delta-7 with the side wings from the Sith Infiltrator or Eta-2 Jedi fighter.

I don't know if he's a "Clone" or not, but I wouldn't mind seeing one of the Courcscant Firefighters...

I say, the more clones, the merrier.

Just like women.   :P

Seriously, I'm a sucker for different paint schemes - the clone commander is one of my favorite figures so far (no#41's yet) just because he's different from the generic clonie.

Though I do think it's kind of stupid that GL has decided to go the Skittle route with these prequel troopers...what happened to the ranks in the OT?

Was there too much tension between the superiors and cronies? 

"Hey, were exactly the same, what makes you better than me?  Why do you get the cool red armor and I get stuck with this piece of **** lame-o white crap?!"

I honestly don't have much to add other than that I'm more than o.k. with getting more Clones. My only protest would of course be that we don't need them one right after another. It's just to expensive to army build like that and, honestly, takes away some of the fun.

That said I think we're due a lot of Clones...especially in the form of mulitpacks. Just mass-market SA Clones in a simple box with 4 figures and sell it for $20. They'll fly off the shelves constantly. Every month or so, make a variant on paint schemes and send out 2 cases of the new clones. Then send out 1 mixed case. You get the idea.

This Army Building Pack line could include the rest of the movies aswell, with Stormtroopers (ANH) and then later down the line ROTJ style Stormtroopers. Make an officers pack, make a Rebel Fleet Trooper pack, hell make an Ewok pack. They'll all sell, and collectors will be happy to be getting quality Army Builders at resonable prices (unlike the Target Clone  ::)).

^ But that could not possibly be done. It would be far too sensible. ::)

And kids don't buy Army builders and this line is driven by the kids, we collectors only make up 20% of the purchasers of Star Wars, just ask the Big H, they have a Chart and Graph and a business Degree that they obviously traded for using Jedi Master Points as tuition...

It would be awesome if they made some small little box sets of a Clone Commander and then like 4 of his personal troops, wouldn't it? I'd be all over something like that.

There's what, like 6 Clone Commanders or something like that? Maybe more?

I believe so far there have been 8 sort of identified...

Commander Cody
Commander Bly
Commander Gree
Commander Bacarra
Commander Neyo
Commander Appo
Commander Fox
Commander Thire

Bly (sort of), Thire and Bacarra have been done already.

My guess is that he and Bly share the same armor design except Thire has selected "Red" as his coloring of choice and Bly (as is pictured at the start of this thread) selected "Yellow".

The Evolutions 3-Pack also technically has a Commander Bly in it - unless Bly takes his helmet off and has a huge scar or something, the yellow version of the Clone Commander basic figure that is in the Clone/Stormtrooper Evolutions set could easily serve as his figure.

I guess we can cross these guys off the list...

And the other two in this picture:

Looks like they are coming in the Deluxe 3-pack of Clones...

Well, yes and no. The 3-pack clones are too static to really be considered action figures. I'll hold out for the SA clone repaint.
