Hasbro have announced that we’ll be seeing a 332nd Ahsoka Clone Trooper in the vintage collection.

Anyone else looking forward to seeing this figure?

Picture of the character for reference:

It’s been at the top of my list since I saw the episode (well, just underneath Sim Aloo). It’s such a great moment in the series. You get sentimentally sad during the first part, then poignantly sad for the second part. I’ll buy like twelve.

I'd like to see them also make Captain Vaughn, which only requires new torso with the rank badge. They could also reuse for a new Commander Cody who is also needed.

Makes you think since they did a Bad Batch Clone 4-pk they could have just as easily done one for TCW S7,although it then might have meant too many figures of Rex out at the same time.

Please don't have the godawful removable helmet (oversized bucket!). New helmet/head and I'm down for 4. If oversized bucket, 2.
I'm thinking it won't, mainly for 2 reasons, when announcing the purge trooper they mentioned wanting to move away from removable helmets for character or troops that don't remove them, so save it for main clones, and the new elite trooper seems to have the he'd glued it, which I see as the start of that, and a new helm (and hopefully new ankles) would be an easy step to solving some issues with that mold

i'm expecting it to be the exact same figure as the 501st with different paint apps on the awful helmet.

^ not until we get the long overdo promised AOTC red and yellow clone officers. the new troop 4 pk concept is PERFECT for an AOTC clone officer 4 pk, especially being AOTC 20th anniv.

I agree! I'd like to get some white Phase II troopers, though. Wasn't the only release of this mold as one of those the one with the BARC speeder?

I must say, I’m not in love with this mold, and wish they would replace it. Same with the Battle Droid. After seeing updates to the Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, Bib Fortuna, Maul (Mandalore), etc… I know Hasbro can do better.

We really need a new Battle Droid that can actually hold its blaster with both hands.

I do miss the beefier look of the older rifles with the smidge of brown paint apps.

But I'm still in for two of these pups.

Oh, yeah, I always swap out the skinny rifles for the old beefy one. They just look nicer.

Not a fan of the battle-damaged deco, makes it look like a sloppy custom to be blunt. I don't mind it on the body, but the helmet should at least be crisp, so it's more identifiable, especially in this scale. Same for the head not fitting on the peg correctly, looks like a rushed head-swap a fan made, just not at the level of what's been described as a premium line, and what we pay $15+ for...

You all make valid points, but I think it looks nice enough. I’m excited to get a handful of them!

Considering the in-universe excuse is that they did a quick custom paint job on their helmets to honor Ahsoka, I can live with it.

yeah, they literally did it upon learning Ahsoka was on the ship, in what, like 15 minutes?

I ordered five. That’s crazy but I’m an army builder—what can I say?

I only ordered four, since they're a specialized group among an already elite legion.

Just two to flank ARC Jesse.

Running low on display space, but got some fun ideas on how to pose ‘em.

🤷🏽‍♂️
