Im sure there were more Commanders offscreen with the same type of outfit. 

I'm sure there were more of just about anything I can imagine offscreen, because it's not Lucas' vision, it'd be mine.

Wait...can someone explain why 6 Bacaras would be needed?  There's only 1 in the movie.  You can't customize grunts out of him.  I don't get that one.

Dressel - I'm thinking about picking up several for customs actually.  I like his "skirt" thing and shoulder pad - I think they will be good for parts for some Mygeeto Clone grunts.  As for his helmet not looking like other Clones, well I'm planning on making my own EU custom Clones.   :)

CuDa033 - sorry, but I'm an army-builder.  I make giant dioramas.  To do so, I need large armies.  Blame Hasbro for not producing the army builders in the quantities they should - don't blame true collectors. 

As for the ebayers who sell "lots" of army-builders, one of those main sellers in in China or Hong Kong (or somewhere over there) and he has access to multiples of all of the figures. 

But there are also people who sometimes are forced to sell part of their collection, just last week I sold 6 Commtech Stormtroopers on ebay because I need some money.  I don't hoard them for ebay - but I needed a little extra cash so I decided to sell a few.

Anyways, I'm sure you're a good guy, but please don't try and start arguments here.  We have a good forum here where that doesn't happen fortunately.

Which figures and parts would you kitbash to make the Bacara grunt?  I was thinking about this yesterday, I bought the perfect paint - Folk Art Berrywine color.  I brought a Bacara figure over to the paint section and opened some bottles to match it.

I was thinking of using Clone Commander 33's shoulder pauldron and putting it on a SAGA snowtrooper, then painting various parts.  Famine pointed out that there are some unique boots though.

A little sculpy, and you could easily make those boots.

I'm hoping to do a custom early Imperial Army officer squad...as the uniforms in ROTS are slightly different than the ones in the OT.

I'm not 100% sure on what parts I'll use... definitlely the Bacara skirt thing, and maybe the shoulder thing... those are some great reference pics by the way!

Wasnt trying to start a fight I just think its lame when people buy 50 clones. I mean if its somthing they were givin or do with a child like custom play sets things like that... then cool . But to just walk into a store and see 10 clones and buy all of them is what I dont get. Give other people a chance to collect is how I see it. I mean was there ever a figure you wish you could have picked up as a kid and had or still have a knightmare of a time finding? Just somthing to think about.

Again not starting a fight just wanted to voice my opinion and if it gets me booted from here Its up to the hosts.

Wouldnt the Troopers that served under Bacarra just be repainted Snowtroopers?

There's some subtle differences to the costume, but it's pretty close to the Snowtrooper in pretty much every way.

I'm hoping they do a Super Articulated one...  If only because I think it was one of the better laid out battle sequences, though brief as it may have been.

I have about 29 Clones as of my count the other night...  A meager army compared to some, but thanks to Paul Mundheim I've done a lot better than I would've on my own.  I've still yet to see an AT-TE Gunner in stores but Paul got me two... 

I like it but it's not a figure I want a ton of due to the articulation and pose.  I'll deal with #6 and #41's just fine.

I picked up a lay-away the other day of 9 Clones (mostly 41's) and man I just love how these Clones look all together.  Fantastic little line-up.  Not gonna quit anytime soon I think, but then again the sheer lack of figures (Clones that is) makes it easy to pace myself I guess.   

Paul's the only one who makes me feel like I'm overspending!  hah, thanks man! :)

Since I took those photos I've only added 3 figures.

1 Commander to bring them to 15 - the same number as the pilots.

and 2 Gunners - bringing them to 20.
