It looks great, but I don’t want to pay shipping for just one clone. I’m hoping it will still be available at BBTS, just like the EE exclusive Purge Trooper was.

****.... I have to get this and I said Fives was my last Clone. Sign me up for the Italian Stallion/Cobra Kai/ Latin King color scheme clone.

🎵 Black and yellow...black and yellow

Seriously though, the paint job on this one is pretty good too. I do also hope that I can get a couple of these new Gaming Greats from the same place since separate shipping for each one of these figures is dumb.

Looks like The Punisher version of a clone. Not sure why they suddenly dumped the 'Gaming Greats' Star Wars card for a 'Battlefront II' logo. Wish they'd have just stuck with 'Expanded Universe'.

Pre-ordered three from Skyward since they have no tax and free shipping if you add to their supply drop. Same price as EE even though that's where they source from IIRC. You can get free shipping from EE as well, but you need to order 5 to qualify. Unfortunately, you can't mix with the Lambent for the free s/h.

I was thinking the chest pattern looks like a SHIELD logo.

Hmm, makes me wonder when the republic trooper comes out he will be on an Old republic card.

Dang..if that happens, I'll need to track one down for the carded logo..unless Hasbro releases anotber OR figure. A least I should have a few extra cw/wm excls to trade to get a OR troop.

I have one of these on preorder. It’s pretty, I think.

Went back and forth on this guy, finally decided to place an order. I never played with this skin in the game, because I never really utilized that class of trooper.

The sculpt and paint apps are just too good and make this guy too unique to pass up. This is the only one of these new ARC troopers I'm getting, specifically because of the paint apps.

This class of Trooper tears it up. Low battle point cost and super potent.

This is way cool, but I was surprised Hasbro didn't first go for the ARC Trooper commanders from Clone Wars Season 3: Colt, Havoc, and Blitz. I'm kinda partial to the last one as you might imagine.

Why would Shae not be VC101? The Republic Trooper reissue retained VC113 and Ahsoka retained VC102...??
you're right. I guess i wasn't thinking when I typed that post and I was actually on my way back here to edit my post reflecting just that. In fact reviewing the numbers between #227 and #240, IF Jesse jumps back to p/u mia #188 (hey, Fives went back to p/u MIA #176, so why not Jesse?) then the remaining 5 from jesses' wave, Lambert seeker, koska, axe, migs and lando could fill all the #s, then the next 2 g.g. and/or Anakin/mortar trooper wave could start at #241

They almost look like they’re in the same army.. 😄

It’s kind of a mixed bag. Doesn’t quite look like they ride together, but I’ll definitely try them all together, for a night time mission on Umbara 😎

Obviously we need a Republic Commando in black with blue highlights, that gives you three styles of GAR elite armor (Phase 1 ARC from the Multimedia Project CW, Phase 2 ARC from Filoniverse TCW and Katarn Armor RC) in three primary shades.

Was that head used before? (I never got the 501st ARCs) looks like one of the best Tem likenesses

I put an order in for two openers. I really don’t do that often. I look for loose troop builders. I think last time I got two on card was the TOR Trooper. No regrets there. It’s such a cool look. They also come to my location next month, so I don’t want them hanging around another month waiting for a Mauldalorian or what have you to be shipped with.

I have to admit, I thought “Umbra” was a misprint, being one letter short for Umbara. So it turns out it’s Latin for “shadow”, meaning the “darkest part” of a shadow. I’ve only briefly played the game and I wasn’t very good at it, but I’ll definitely check it out in the near future. Loved the original games. They really kept Star Wars alive during the dark times.

^ figures (no pun intended) since I switched to bbts to avoid ee's extravagant shipping costs.
