I believe that is a clone of Punky Brewster (sp?)

This is an example of Hasbro taking the want of collectors too far. Stupid clone, not needed. I will pledge right now, right here that I will pass on this clone so someone else can have an "extra" though I don't think that will really be a problem.

Is it just me or is this guy looking a bit better in the new Hasbro photo?



Less metallic and purple-y, more black and gray?  I guess it's just the lighting difference.  I'm still not exactly thrilled about shelling out $20 for one fancy clone....

You may be right Jeff.  I think they toned down on the use of the sparkly lip-gloss finish from the original photos.  Perhaps Hasbro realized they went a little overboard?

It looks better, but it is still an easy pass for me. No way am I shelling out $20 for a shiney clone with random blobs of dark colored paint. I have plenty of other shiney things at my house to be entertained with.... Ooooo, look tin foil from my burrito!!

Sadly, that is more movie accurate than either the Utapau Shadow Clone or the Covert Ops Clone - at least there were some Yellow and Orange colored Clones in the movie.  If fact, if you got replaced the yellow with white and added a few more Orange highlights, it'd actually be nice!

I'll admit, this looks better, but I'm not paying the $15+ price tag.  :P
