A bit of a stretch, in the bottom of this (http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/288125_400816293309646_833781481_o.jpg) picture we see what appears to be a Clone Trooper Sergeant holding a rifle from AOTC.

Thoughts on this?

Then again, something similar would have been obvious for the lieutenant, and they went and made his cardback a photoshopped ARC Trooper, so...

Same here! I never got the old repaints so this definitely great, not to mention I'm already lovin' the VC45 sculpt.

It also reminds me a lot of A'den (Null-12).

We again find ourselves in the midst of an attempt by Hasbro to capitalize on tooling by producing guys in the TVC45 sculpt in all kinds of different colors. This is just the first wave...

I withhold excitement purely because I get the feeling that the 501st, green sgt., shocktrooper, etc. will eventually become the TVC15 ROTS clone all over again. I hope not, but there ARE an awful lot of clone coming out in the near future (not even including the new TOR trooper as something very similar)...

Amazon still has plenty, ans there's some scummers that have some up for sale or trade. I've bought most of mine online. They're practically retail price, and unless you had a Tuseday Morning around you, you could have gotten one for $4. I really would like to massively army build these guys. And I'm still waiting for a realistic Captain Rex, more Kamas galore!

I'd probably have to buy 6 VC45's then, though, because I need their heads. Maybe someday. After I get the full Delta Squad that came out last year (birthday present to myself?). :P

I imagine there will be running changes like the last time, otherwise I'd say they should have gone with red or Yellow.
The Green one saw way too much time in TLC IMO.

The problem with AOTC Clones is you only have 5 version to do, as opposed to ROTS where you can have Commanders and their Battalions.

I always imagined a lime-green colour. But according to the images, it's more of a green gold. I'm not sure we even saw them in AOTC, so I think Hasbro did an OK job.

Completely forgot about that game. That green is Perfect! Although Hasbro's Lieutenant's colours are off too. It's a Cobalt-teal colour, when it should be like a Primary Cyan.

Some have been painted black (Fordo, Lieutenant, maybe the 501 and Shock) and this one and the original EP II clone have pure white ones. There is no consistancy is what I figure it is.

Here's the issue. On the CG renders of the character, there isn't any black showing. Hasbro sculpted it so that the black suit underneath is very visible, so painted or not, it's inaccurate.

Then came the blue stripes show in Comic Con. Now its the greenies

Red is captain, and my money is on both captain and commander being released in 2013, so they can get all the AOTC clones out of the way - the pilot is also coming next year - in the same year AOTC is out in 3D.

Good. its about time Attack of the clones figures are getting some respect around here.

And of course the red stipes will be next year. it's obvios because of the greenies and the bluesies and the regular all white Vintage syle ATOC Clonies previously this year. And its good to see the return of ATOC Anakin Skywalker too. Hopefully a rerelease of Count Dooku carded on a Vintage style card this time

Actually, yellow is commander and red is captain. Blue is lieutenant, and Hasbro made him in TVC.

CMDR_Appo

Having the Commander come with binoculars makes sense since you have the Commander with Yoda using them through the battle. If he didn't come with any though, I guess I could put Gree's with him for similar effect.
Also, anyone else want the Forward Command Center unit that all the officers and Yoda stood in?

It would be a great way to release a few more generic human Jedi, which I'd welcome. My battle of Geonosis, Jedi Temple and Clone Wars shelves could certainly use some more of them.

I think Hasbro wants to move through the colored ones, but they'll probably have a basic one in the line or in the MH2013 line. There's also a good chance that we'll see a BP with at least one white one and either a red on e or a yellow one and some Jedi.

Hasbro wont stop until every color of Clone Commander and Trooper has been released now in this new sculpt. I dont think i for one would army build all the different deco clones again, but i would buy new releases of the Commanders. If they look like the 2013 Captain Rex then its a definate buy from me for any Clone Commander.

Back on topic, i will buy 2 of this Clone, as they will look great next to Captain Rex as his 501st phase 1 Troopers.

Oh I'd be fine with a battle pack in place of single figures, but to expect Hasbro to release a wave of figures from Attack of the CLONES with no clones is a little ridiculous. :)

actually thats not too surprising w/ Amazon. They have many fullfillment centers accross the country. So like, one close to you may had one in stock but not the reat, for example (just using random numbers here) they got 100 cases. Your clone mmmay been #77 on thier list but your luke and padme may been # 116 and #122 respectively so that FC could only fill your clone part of the order. The rest could come from different FC that had either luke or padmme or both in stock. When they arrive, just take note of the shipping adress and maybe that'll make more ence. I had order from Amazon before and had items shipped seperate from seperate FCs before. Sometimes, if it seems longer than usual to get shipping notice, Amazon will move part of your order from one FC to another to ship them together. It's random how they do it. 0h, yeah you can also mark your order to ship together or as available too

That's good. I'll just have to inspect them up-close in the store. I don't want any filled-hand troops, because he won't be able to hold his weapons two-handed. Call me OCD, but I will do my best not to buy a filled-hand one.

I agree. Nothing against clones, but it would be better all around if they just made a couple of clone BPs. I'd rather see clone BPs with a few clones together, then having them taking valuable space in the case and because it would be a lot easier for those that want a lot to just pick up a few BPs at one store than to have to rush around to every store that puts out one case to get enough.

With the VC 45 sculpt Hasbro has introduced a new standard for all upcoming clones. That's why they're using it.

Are you referring to the first picture? There is a glare on the last dot, look at the second pic. That's the same figure without the glare. All the dots I've seen are perfect. The paint you need to look out for is on the helmet around the visor and going over the top of the helmet. Those have been lopsided on a lot of the ones I've seen.

The one I picked up had no pink and a perfectly painted helmet!!! I might get one more, but I'll wait for a sale to get anymore multiples!!!

Great. After passing on about four of these guys I finally found one with good paint apps. However, while playing around with the figure and moving the joints I noticed that the left shoulder was not properly inserted into the body, which makes him look like he had a dislocated shoulder joint. I really inspect every figure very thoroughly before I buy it and compare different specimen (if I have the option), but the weird shoulder joint was unfortunately not visible in the package.

The body and half the helmet is ok paint job wise, but then on one half of the helmet, the green around the T visor tapers off into nothing way too early, so basically, half the helmet is correctly painted, the other being virtually a plain white clone helmet. I'm gonna keep my eye out for a second one in order to get a better helmet.

I visited several stores today to see if they had any figures from wave one. The Sergeant and the Biker Scout were always sold out. Seems like they're very popular here.
The other Sergeant (my fifth or sixth) I saw over the weekend again suffered from a messed up paint job. It somehow has become a game of chance for me to finally find one that doesn't look bad when displayed next to the my other VC45 clones. Luckily he's going to be carried forward in the next wave.

There's a seller on Amazon selling these for just $3.77 a pop. Because it's a Marketplace seller there's no free shipping, but the rate is pretty reasonable, I ordered 4 and it worked out to $6.01 per figure.

I know that it's wrong to have a squad of sergeants, but the plain white one isn't so easy to get a hold of and I also really like the military green of the sergeant's markings. I'll just pretend they're unit markings (kinda like a phase II clone) instead of a rank marking, heh. Had originally planned to hold out for the 41st trooper, but the phase II helmet really looks off on those guys while the sergeant's phase 1 helmet looks great.

Over the last few weeks I have come across many cases of the first wave and the one figure that is mostly, if not always, sold out (since the stores here have always been getting just one case) is the Sergeant. It's currently the most popular TBS figure in my area.

Yeah, I managed to snatch one of these guys up on Amazon through a sale since the blister pack was separating from the backer card. I think I paid $6 something shipped with prime. Anyways, I know he's been out for awhile but I reviewed him anyways- Clone Trooper Sgt. Review: ThEpic Review: Action Figure Review: Clone Trooper Sergeant from Star Wars Black by Hasbro (http://www.thepicreview.com/2013/11/action-figure-review-clone-trooper.html)

He's really a fun figure to fiddle around with.

Interesting point from the beginning of October. I've been keeping an eye on what's in stores over the last two weeks and this clone is the first figure from the case sold. At first I saw him here and there, but now you can't find this guy. The second most quickly sold-out are the pilot and the scout trooper.

Same here. I understand collectors being "cloned out", but they are hot sellers. I've seen Luke more than the Sergeant since TBS debut.

Big difference here, the scout is the most common one around here, followed by Biggs and Anakin. None of wave 1 is particularly hard to find, but around here the ones I see least are Padme, Luke and Vader. The two clones seem to fall in the middle.
