212th Battalion Clone Troopers & Jet Backpacks



This one is posted over at Entertainment Earth, EE has a picture of the Clone Trooper up as well so it might be worth checking out.

I take it that it'll include a couple of clones


Any thoughts on this pack? Figures?

Not what I was expecting. I guess I assumed it would be 501st clones.

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

It says there is an Anakin included. I hope it is a SA one with a ball joint waist this time like that one with the helmet because if that one has a hole in its back for the space gear it would be pretty easy to just give it a jetpack

It says the same thing on the Turbo Tank Gunners pack, so I think it is not correct that Anakin is included.

The gunners obviously don't "fly into battle" so it looks like they just copy and pasted the Clone Trooper Jet Pack description by accident.

I also thought they'd be the Rex's guys from the CW movie, but it looks like the 212th. Does look more yellow than the than orange but if you look at the gunners they look almost black rather than the grey pictured in the Hasbro TF presentation.

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

We saw the 501st in the movie with jet packs at christophosis so why does the 212th have jet packs and not them?

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

Well, looking at the picture of the wave he comes in, it looks like he has the same or a very similar jetpack to the ROTS clone has, not at all like we see in the movie. The picture shows only one, but I'd imagine it will come with several.

Several, meaning at most 2.

Most likely no more than two, but these troopers look cool nonetheless.

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

I hope I'm wrong, but it looks like the Jetpack is the one from the RotS line. The Jetpack Clone
. I Hope not...

That's exactly what it looks like. I'll be passing on this one and will hope for an eventual release with the correct jetpack.

Sure is, looks like Hasbro is trying to make the most out of the mould.

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

The jet pack looks cool, but already have 8 of the 212th from the Obi Wan BP. Might skip. Besides, I take a lot of accessories out before displaying (except the guns, of course)

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

The jetpack appears to use the same wings as the ROTS version, the pack itself looks either new or retooled. As for the clone, I dont want another 212th troop either, I dont understand why they are releasing the clone in this color...

Jetpack looks cool, was expecting the 501st myself - hopefully they'll show up in the series.

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

Def the same jetpack as the ROTS one; no new tooling whatsoever.

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

if they wanted to use a jetpack they could have used the space trooper one and add a peg to it or the jango one for accuracy to the movie(not hasbros storg suit)

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

That was kind of redundant.

I wish they had just done the jetpacks like in the movie so I probably wont be getting this unless there is something to sway my opinion

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

This is an easy pass for me. I cannot wait to see what the third wave of this line will have. It's supposed to have all new molds for most of them. These first two waves of repaints are just supposed to fill the void until they are ready to go.

My thoughts exactly, I can't believe they didn't change ANYTHING on the jet packs... At least throw some painted on droid heads on the jet packs to show how many,"clanker's", they have destroyed. I don't know, SOMETHING!

I wouldn't get this unless it showed up in the show. It's not exactly that exciting. I don't like the glider wing things.

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

Hasbro should make a Battlepack/ Army Builder Pack similar to Obi Wan's and Yoda's.

Captain Rex (with Jetpack) and four 501st Clone Troopers (also with Jetpacks) would not only have been cheap for Hasbro to make,
as they all would of been re-releases/ repaints, but cool at the same time.

Oh well. It's an okay deluxe figure, though it could probably be released on a basic card as well, can it?

not gonna get this, but if H gave this guy an updated rifle with strap like the ph.2 counterpart then that would be a plus

Re: Clone Troopers with Jet Packs

so i am guessing the description of this set is just talking about the clones with jet packs as a whole-so we are only getting one clone with a jet pack for 16+ dollars-well isn't that just like hasbro

Passing on all of these too, especially if they're still coming with the older helmet sculpt.

Umm, to shoot things with.


Seriously, don't you remember the scene in the movie where the 212 were flying around killing droids? Well if you look in the back ground, you will see one guy run out of ammo and he swoops down to get a fallen droid's gun. He still holds onto his own gun though since Palpy makes them pay for them if they lose any gear. I believe that was revealed in a scene that was cut at the last minute.

Re: 212th Battalion Clone Troopers & Jet Backpacks

Actually, they look fun! I think I'll get them! I don't know why I even bother trying to pass on anything anymore; the pull these figures have is insidious ^^
