Wasn't Merumeru the Preview Wookiee?

The Preview Wookiee is most likely Salporin.  At least that is the Wookiee that most closely resembles the Preview Wookiee.  If you look at the photo on the package, this is most likely the same Wookiee.

No way, dude. Sal has no braids. Check out this pic:

The guy on the left rear clearly has the red ties on his braids just like the preview guy. And I think his body type fits too. He's bulkier. Salporin looks more like the slimmer #43.

Yeah the pic Nicklab posted has the helmet and body armor of the Preview Wookiee, but I guess the braids eliminate Salporin as the template.

At any rate, it's huge, hairy, bulky, and generic enough to be a great army builder, and in my top 5 figures all time.

They can paint the preview wookiees as many times as they want and I'll still buy it.

My next diorama for my thread in the custom section will be a HUGE (I'm talking 75 +) mob of wookiees ambushing an AT-RT patrol that are roaming a forest in convoy formation on AT-RT's and on foot.

Your post did nothing to steer it in the right direction...


Anyway, as Dressel posted in another thread, Wal*Mart is aparently going Clone Crazy with a special wall of HTF figures....any clue as to why a retailer such as The Wal would do that? I'm of course refering to the hordes of #6 Shocktroops and #38 Green Repaints.

It's not alot of troopers....62-72 pegs???! that's like 30 cases! most normal stores' SW sections have 15-20 pegs-see for yourself. Yeah, after 30 cases it's gonna seem like alot of clones...- but the case packed amount is the same in case-so it just appears like alot of clones- and ...I bet there wasn't any reds after 2 days....

WHY DO THEY DO IT?? duh, they know what's selling and if H has more product avail. WM' s gonna buy it.

Tell me... what else are the stores supposed to do...? Now that most of the waves have shipped- what other options do the stores have but to stock a ton of the best selling cases to hold over until new product finally starts to hit the stores.

"Your post did nothing to steer it in the right direction..." ::)
= Anyway, I'm glad we're steered right since we're talking about clones again ;D

Posted this in the customs section, but I am currently working on a green clone found on page 44 of the visual dictionary. I really like that clone and I don't want to wait so that's the reason for the custom. Wish HB would give that one a shot on a SA body!

With all the clones we've gotten, it's kind of typical that we have not gotten the clones with the most screen time, the orange Utapau battle clones. Must be the helmet design.

Yeah, I wouldn't wait either, because it's never going to be made.  That green clone turned out to be orange in the flick, that's the same pattern as the Utapau grunts under Commander Cody.  I think the green kind were originally intended to be from Kashyyyk under Gree.  Anyhow, I did those customs but with orange instead of green:
