And it looks like they still haven't figured out which way the belt goes

 :D

That is pretty funny that there are two different clones in the picture and the belts are opposite on the two.  I think you're right, I don't think they have a clue how it is supposed to look.   :-\

Dang, that makes the Utapau Shadow Trooper look good to me.

What's with purple designs? He looks like he's demonstrating "Pinch of Plum" at the make-up counter. I might cancel this thing. Then at least they'll send the shirt I ordered instead of sitting on it till Dec.

If only they were switched  :'(  I would have ordered SEVERAL on line even at the online price.  If Target had the "psychadelic, electric, purple wiskered ***** cat" clone I'd leave it to the scalpers and save my gas money and stress.

It's funny, while my feelings towards the SWSHop Clone grow worse (I think I've gone from wanting all five I ordered down to wanting just one to keep carded), my love of the Target Utapau Clone increases.

The more I see the Target Utapua Shadow Clone, the more I'm digging it - it's kinda got a "vertigo" type of thing going on and it isn't totally FUBAR in it's execution.   :-\

I still don't like the Utapau guy (Was he really on Utapau in the movie at all??), and I think it's due entirely to his supposed "stealth" and the fact that he's basically half white. How is that stealthy? More like Zebra Legion.

The name is the stupidest part. IMO he would actually look fairly cool as an elite bodyguard/secret police type of character, but "stealth"? Nuh-uh.

It's for the children.  Secret police would scare them, stealth makes them think of Batman.  I can hardly wait for the next Mattel trooper. :P

I guess I still haven't had good enough timing to be able to order any of these.

Argh.

OK,

GH has shome shots of the new Covert Clone Trooper posted...

While the Target Utapau Trooper is the modified CW SA Clone body, it looks to me like the Covert Ops Trooper is the #41 body... complete with the antenna slot still in his back.  Please someone else go look at the pictures and tell me that isn't a big gap on his back where the #41 antenna is supposed to go.   :(

If this Clone shows up and has a giant slot in his back?  That's just damn lazy.   >:(

If that is the case, I'm glad the 501st trooper got the #38 body - I'd hate for all my 501st troopers to have that slot or have that fdang antenna sticking out everywhere.   :-\

Yep… still has the slot. Maybe I'll try my hand at a custom accessory to fit in there. Any ideas?

LOL!  The SW.Shop trooper gets the 41 body as a repaint but not the 501st or the Red Shocktrooper?  Hasbro is odd.

The Target clone uses the CW SA clone sculpt again, that is why the belt is right-side up.
