I'm really becoming rather disinterested in collecting Hasbro's constant errors and variants, especially when they're occurring on the near impossible to find Bly figure.

I've decided that I'm only interested in intentional variants/repaints.  It's just so much easier on my sanity that way.

i had a question about the #41 SA clone. there was a post (with pics) on the belt variation of this figure a day or two ago in another thread either on this site or 'scum. for the life of me i cannot find it. i wanted to see pics of the differences of the belts. correct me if i'm wrong but is one of the versions of this actually the belt that normally comes on the #6 clone? if i remember, wasn't one of the belt versions supposedly upside down? if anyone has comparison pics, please post. thanks.

That was covered in a separate thread about the AT-RT Driver...

Dammit, I thought my ROTS shopping days were over. I'll need this "corrected" Bly. Is it really more movie accurate?

Bugger! If this Gree variant looks better, I'll have to get that too. >:( But I'll probably return my other Gree and Bly. Bly's finger is about to rip off, anyway, from jamming it into the little trigger guard on the pistol.

As soon as I get these, the damned Twins and TSC will probably be out. :(

You know the hard part about the latest Gree and Bly variants (besides they are cool and the ROTS line is ending soon) is that it's extra hard to get online.  It's not like Amazon.com will spell this one out.   I live for clones and this is going to drive me crazy...I thought I was done!  I've got to figure out a way to trade for these suckers...

It blows my mind they fixed the visor on Gree, but not that inaccurate helmet deco.   ::)

A visor on Gree isn't going to fix the ****** black paint aps, the inaccurate paint on the helmet, the lack of a holster/greeblies on his uniform, the ****** camo paintjob...

List goes on but basically look for a review in the near future on this POS. :)

I've been buying Bly figures to remove the visor so I can build up his "squad" a little bit (since finding Evo sets here is impossible) using the Bly figure itself.  I like the variation but now I too am sorta hell bent on getting this latest one if it's the most accurate.  I can't even really tell the difference (I haven't looked hard) but now I want it.  ::)

Gree can suck a nut though.  The only justification I've found for buying Gree figures is to BS them as some kind of EU troopers he has in his squad.  I'm still waiting on "Gree" to start ground pounding for my republic military.

There's a sort of brown stripe laid overtop the the yellow one that runs vertically down his middle. It's not much of a difference, but when side-by-side you can see it. And since it seems to be more movie accurate (you can see those markings right on the CGI Bly on the Hasbro package), I want it. It actually matches his pauldron now, so I guess it was always supposed to be his commander color. There's more battle damage on the new one too. Much bigger differences than the new Gree. Found Gree but no Bly yet. Can't believe I'm hunting ROTS figs again.....  :'(
