Why Bacara would be in there though, I have no idea.  Never saw him on Coruscant with the grey shouldered troops.

Other than that picture can anyone say for a fact in the film that those dead guys are all white and not blue?

I can see reinforcements being needed at the temple...  so I can see white suited Clones there.  I can see the grey marking troops there too since we do see them on Coruscant in one scene... 

Be funny if Palpy sent in the 501st thinking they'd get the job done and they still needed extra guys to pour in.  Jedi kickin' ass and they'd take names but they kicked it so fast they could only take initials!   :o

Here's a picture of this set from the Comic Con Q & A...



Pretty cool packaging set up there by Hasbro.  I think I'm actually somewhat impressed with that.  ;)

I'm digging the blue Baccara officer.

Off topic: Why do all the new higher ranking clones have the TE/Baccara shoulder covering? I mean, I like them and all...but whatever happened to paldrons? I guess an in-universe anwser is these are less cumbersome in the feild?

I find the skirts more cumbersome and pointless, yet they slap them on every commander

Well I wouldn't imagine that the Kama would be all to bad, I mean they seem light enough.

But yeah, every commander dosen't need one...I was under the impression that only certain legions adopted them from the ARC corp, but then again, its only my interpretation.

I look at the Bacara and TE Gunner's thing as a Pauldron...  Seems like the Clones just had a variety of them (as far as their "look" or physical construction)...  Why that is, I'm totally clueless.  Maybe the Clones made them on their own by their specific legions, but the Empire stripped them down to a specific uniformed style for all troopers with the colors meaning the same across the board.  

At least that's how I'm looking at things right now.

On the "skirt", I think it's more means of a Commander establishing himself as unique among his men, and perhaps paying some tribute to the Republic's most elite Clones too...  I dunno.  I wouldn't think it would hinder movement or be a "problem" for troops and movement.

^ If you'd prefer, think of them like kilts. You gonna tell these guys to their face that kilts aren't manly? ;)

I got all four sets from EE a few weeks ago.  They are ok but they are overpriced.  I think it is about $36 a set or all four for $120.  I think EE will get more in September.  You can order them now and get them when they are released.  I ordered mine in May and got them a few weeks ago.


My guess is that he bought them at EE
You are never alone when there's a clone.

Those aren't the Target 5-pack Clones......

He is selling those at a high price because he wants to get what $$ he can while they are temporarily out of stock at EE.
