Based on how Hasbro described it during the livestream, this is almost certainly a straight reissue of VC-060. That figure did have a removable helmet, so I think it's fair to assume that the clone will have photo real deco for the face.
Not that I really need any more 501st Clones, not to mention one with this head underneath. I would buy a few if they sculpted a new larger head because I feel that it's too tiny, although with the new sizing happening and Wolffe's head being a bit small as well as the new ARC Troopers I guess it's not that tiny anymore.
I think since it is a reuse of VC60 it wouldn't kill them to also include an extra helmet for Ahsoka's tribe. Then again with the limited numbers they're producing these in it wouldn't exactly help anyone on either camp as I feel it would skew more towards her troops versus basic 501 Clones. Plus since all it does require is a different helmet I suspect that Clone is in the immediate parking lot to do next. How can it not being such an easy reapint?
I’ll echo those who say they don’t like this clone body. It looks really skinny, like there’s no room for a person under that armor. I honestly think the super articulated mold from 2005 looks better, and has decent enough articulation.
I've always felt this clone mold looed too skinny, on the other hand I also felt that the ole ROTD mold looked to chunky/blocky in areas. So if they ever do decide to make an all new mold I wouldn't mind a slightly stockier mold, but I suspect not as it would require more plastic which costs more. If anything figures are getting slimmer.

No real need for these guys as I too already bought my share in the early days. One thing I wish they'd stop doing is the removable helmet, they should have just sculpted a helmet that fit the neck post. Also while I like they gave him the updated facial sculpt I find that it's getting used too much, some of these Clones should have the younger version head sculpt so I wouldn't mind if they tooled a new Bodie Taylor head for some.
I was out of collecting back when clones were everywhere, so I'll likely pick up a couple for myself, and also get a couple more for my son to add to the battle droids vs. clones display he has set up on his bookshelf.
so, with new card/logo, anyone up for guessing the tvc#? #222 seemed obvious for Ahsoka but now there's 2 figs and 1 missing TVC # in that numeric sequence. Unless, they have one go back to p/u the still MIA #188 (which i recently was thinking Jesse given that Echo went back to p/u the MIA #176) other than #188 there is #228 & up. #188 could also be "Periwinkle" since that has been long rumored now, longer than the "Mauve" and "Violet" figs, but ATM, I'm leaning toward 501st and Ahsoka as #188 and #222. Maybe when preorders go up, back of card images go up as well like w/ Bib and Lobot preorders.

I grabbed one of these, I missed it the first time around. I would love to army build clones, again. But this Clone Trooper mold is not it. I still prefer the older Clones, these are just too skinny and the thigh joint is too restrictive. The dang joint was made for sitting in a saddle, it's not good for much else. They can barely stand up straight because of it. And that bobblehead helmet. They should just do like they have most recently and include two heads instead of a removable helmet.
