You know I am not a fan of all the repaints usually, but i am actually enjoying all the different clones.

Me to.  Those EE exclusive clones are still calling my name.  I won't be able to get all of the clone variants but it would be nice to.

Note in the GH Preview of the SA Clone that they indicate Hasbro told them paint variants were in the works for #41.  I don't really care for these 3 packs either :-\

Yeah!  Another example of "take a hard to find figure and make it even harder to find"!  Way to go Hasbro!  Now just make sure that the re-painted #41 is only 1-per-case to really screw us...   ::)

Go ahead and give us some paint variants on #38 AT-TE Gunner too while you're at it...

I hope so that would be fantastic!

They should do a yellow (mustard?) version of the Clone Commander, because I don't think the Evolutions one comes with a visor.  Or does he?  Can't remember.

The Evolutions Clone does not come with a visor because he is supposed to be Commander Bly:

In the Hyperspace Reversal of Fortune webstrip Bly has the visor, and even in grayscale you can sometimes see the additional shading on the chin.

I think we can say its an EU issue and we won't know until he specifically identified as Commander Cody by Lucasfilm on the Website (IMO is the closest source to EU confirmations we can get)

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

Yes.  They escort the Theta class shuttle from Mustafar to Coruscant.  And as previously noted, you can see them in the full length trailer.

So, who's going to be keeping track of Clones tomorrow?  I know its something I'll be paying a little more attention to than I should :)

A question on the Pilots (and I may get my answer at 6:30 tonight....)

Is the Gunship Pilot, the same as the ARC Pilot and the same as the V-Wing Pilot?  As far as uniforms/helmets go?

OK, after seeing the movie, I can't really see Hasbro making too many of the different colored Clones. Why? Because outside of 1 or 2, they appear on screen for so short a period of time, it would be pointless. Kinda disappointing, to be honest.

The clones that got the most screen time were: Blue Shocktroopers, Commander Cody's forces and Commander Gree's forces.

So I think when we're getting Commander Baccara who was a "blink and you miss him" commander, I think Cody and Gree are no brainers.

We do need a regular version of the BARC Trooper 'cause that uniform was all over, not just riding in BARC speeders.
