Was thinking the same thing.I was wanting it originally until they released the photos yesterday and it looks like the orange is too bright. :/
I might pick this up in store if I see it...

Yes, well, you know, I really look for realism in Star Wars.yeah, while it's nice to be able to do this it does make it look off, though i guess there's no real way to fix that issue. And for some people simply being able to put a figure in that pose is enough realism be damned.
I'm with you on thisI prefer these single joint knees over the double jointed ones. The range of motion is a lot better than you'd expect them to be.
Personally Id rather the sculpt accommodate the articulation. I know that's a sore spot for some people, but to me, if that's the difference between buying figures vs statues.
Yeah I read that this morning and then got excited when I saw an email from Wallyworld later in the day. But it was just a delay for Transformes RED. Walmart strikes againInteresting..

Being Walmart I wouldn’t be surprised. They did that to me years ago. Two of the same figure and another from save wave, ordered at once, got 3 separate shipments. I think two were in envelopes and I in a boxI would have thought that the Super Commandos also being en route would have been mentioned in the article since they're supposed to ship at the same time. At least that's why I specifically ordered those two together. I hope they don't end up shipping them separately 'cause that would almost guarantee a mailer bag instead of a box.
What were they supposed to do? This is from the final Clone Wars episodes where the 501st repainted their helmets themselves to honor Ahsoka. The 501st aren't painters/artists and to have them all completely repaint their armor is a bit much. Plus, it seemed very short notice between when they knew Ahsoka was coming back and when they repainted the helmets. Not to mention if they took it much further they would probably be going too far for someone that wasn't even a member of the Grand Republic military anymore.In all honesty, and nothing against the figure itself, but someone in the art department could have come up with something a little more interesting for the design. IMO
That's why this figure falls flat for me, it's just another 501st that dipped his head in a bucket of paint.
Fair point, but for such an advanced civilization, and consider how quickly Sabine could paint something up. Not to mention the various Gunship nose artwork, it's not exactly like those were coming off the assembly line painted like that. So I would expect some sort of machine that can just paint some kind of artwork on it and presto! Could have even been a simple emblem like the Wolfpack used.What were they supposed to do?

October 1stHave these hit Walmart stores as yet?
I don't see how, the pattern of the paint specifically mirrors Ahsoka's facial design.As far as I'm concerned they really don't look remotely like it could be associated with Ahsoka, the orange paint could easily be honoring Plo Koon.
Yeah, I love the Clone Wars show, the 501st and Ahsoka but it did seem very strange to me. Then again I also love Clone Troopers so any reason to throw some interesting new paint apps on them and I'm also happy. I just don't think too hard about it and appreciate more variety in the universe.It's just a dumb idea to begin with.
