Elite Clone Troopers?
« on: July 19, 2005, 09:25 PM »
Not sure if you guys have seen these.

Elite Clone Prototypes

GH has them listed as possible Target exclusives.

I am not feeling them.

We're going to have more EU clones than legitimate paint variations at the rate this is going. Weak.

Those look like the Clones they're using in that Target Battle Pack with the 5 Clones...

So we have a little Commander Bacara, a little Coruscant shock troop, and the rest plain white generic clone all mixed into one.

Wow.  Just wow.  I seriously hope that isn't the Coruscant Battle Pack set, because if it is...that's yet another pass from me this fall. 

I mean, I don't have the patience or skills to do a custom figure, but wow.  The Bacara pauldron on a #6 Clone with a red shoulder piece?  My daughter could make that figure, and I don't even have a daughter.   :)

Not much of a custom, but I agree.

It would look a lot better if the left shoulder and the shoulder pad were the same color.

I'm really tempted to say it's a custom job, but they all look a little too uniform and cookie cutter to me for that to be the case.

If this is legitimate, it isn't too impressive to me.  Like Jared mentioned earlier, we're going to have more "EU" paint variations of troopers than actual movie versions before too long here.  Plus, with a possible "exclusive" tag, it will probably be in the $10-$13 range.  I'm starting to get tired of the exclusive stuff, even though I'm not actively looking for most of them.  I know exclusives have always been somewhat of a pain for people, depending on area, but I kind of miss the days where we could actually sometimes get a decent, movie vehicle or something as an exclusive.  Not repaints that are 2-3 times retail price.

The funny thing is, being EU, I'd leave it on the pegs for $5, Hasbro and Target can forget about $13.

Seriously, how many people here are going to go out and hunt for this thing with gas $2.50/gallon, then pay probably upwards of $13 for the actual figure when you find it after going through 1/2 tank of gas conservatively?  This piece of **** realistically costs $30.
