Cool photos of the clones!  Is there a website I can go to in order to see all of the different types?  The above photo of the "funny faced" yellow striped clone was the first I've seen of it outside the bigscreen.  How about some photos of the Mygetto "snow" clones?!?!  Those are COOL!

Right now I don't know of a definitive listing of pictures/descriptions of the Clones.  It's mostly people pulling images from various sources to prove a point (hehe). 

Browse Clone Customs threads in the customizing areas though because they're where I'm seeing a LOT of clone pictures for the first time.  The customizers go nuts for the most obscure images/reference pictures. :)  Clones have been no different in that niche of the hobby, that's for sure.

First of all, I'd like to commend the fine people at JD.com for doing such cool giveaways.  One more reason why this is the best forum/site for SW collectors around.   :)

Okay, getting away from my blatant asskissing, the thing about the cut scenes/canon debate that muddies the issue anymore is that the vast majority of the cut material is actually in the scripts (at least for the prequels).  I finally got to read the official script of ROTS yesterday, and there is A LOT of stuff that we see in the toy line (Senators, in particular) that showed up in the script and was shot/completed but wound up getting cut.  Same thing with AOTC: all of the Padme's family stuff is in the script, was shot, and completed (and then included on the DVD), so how it could be any less "canon" than anything else is beyond me.  That's just my opinion though.

As for the Target Clone, the funny thing is that there is such a fuss over this and the fact that the 12" Clone is the exact same thing is going almost completely unnoticed.  As a 4" Target exclusive I can't see the fuss, considering it was a short run novelty item for one particular retailer (and the paint scheme, you have to admit, is very similar to what you would imagine a Target store on Coruscant would have as its logo, hee hee), while the 12" doll was an open market release and has been seen by a lot more people.

That being said, it's a Clone that has different markings and it would have fit in with the actual film since it was actually developed for the film, so that's good enough for me to have one in my collection.  ;D

The linked to guy's custom stickers are easy enough to print out yourself as well...  Hell, you can take the image he uses and go to Kinko's and have it printed out in any color you wanted really, and for relatively cheap.  Just a thought for those wanting to build a MASSIVE Clonetrooper army with that logo.  It's a good way to go.

yeah I was able to win 2 on evilbay  ;)
and I'm selling the 2nd one to a friend who wanted one too. I ended up paying about retail plus s/h so I don't feel bad about it.

Target Clones Return?!?
« Reply #327 on: August 14, 2005, 09:03 PM »
Today at two of my local Targets I found the Target exclusive clones on clearance at 50% off.  Both Targets had 6 clones each and they were case fresh.  They had the first knob on the star case, the one that looks like a lollypop not the star one.  They all had 6.48 stickers and that was what they rang.  I got one at one Target but 2 more when I saw them again.  Originally I thought it was a scalper return but at 2 stores is unlikely.

Yeah, people on RS reported buying some at half price a day or two ago. I called them with the DCPI, but they said they didn't have any. I'd sure like score a few for that price.

I now feel like a moron for not buying all of them.  At the very least I could have offer them at cost to forum members.  I'm sure by tomorrow there will be no trace of them.
