Thanks for the heads up. Ill grab him someday when I can find him cheap. I think the arms are the only thing on hasbro's that looks better than mine. However, did they botch the wrist comm? The blue stripe is supposed to run across the top of the comm.The arms are the same. I was just looking at mine and if I had a VC45 white clone body, I can use the trunk and slap all the Rex parts on it (lower legs, arms, and head) and then I'd have a VC45 mold Rex. I'd also have to find a belt and kama for him that would fit as the Clone Wars cloth one fits on very small waists.
Didn't know about that, but yes, it is not over the comm. Even for Doom, his paint apps on the comm on his arm are all over the place.Thanks for the heads up.

Use the Fordo body and substitute the arms and legs with this Rex, the SG kama from Rocket Pack Rex and use Fordo's belt.The arms are the same.

You don't need to dye them if you don't want to. I just used good acrylic paint on mine seen below. The kama isn't as a soft/pliable then, but that didn't really matter to me as I am not moving him around much anyhow.Legs are hard to do. Im going to do an alternate method where I cut joints. Any tips on painting fabric? I want to pant over fordo's red parts on his kama. Is it doable?
Yeah, I've done below the knee before kn a VC45, but I think the person who was asking probably wanted the '45 legs for the ball joint hips, which can be troublesome to remove.You mght be able to get away with just doing below the knee.
My goodness, this is what's passing nowadays for regular figures?!! They look like sloppy custom figures. I see better paint apps on the saga legends stuff. WOW. And I was really looking forward to these...add me as another highly disappointed with these clones, especially after getting one like Fordo in the Vintage line. And price wise...blah.Recieved my Rex today and the head is indeed ball jointed. Overall the paint apps are pretty good and look much better in person!
Yeah, they had the head already too. And for the Phase II, they could have used the one that was from the Clone Wars line and retooled it to be hollow. It's so big anyways that it should work.I can't believe they didn't give him a removable helmet. They already had phase 1 made anyway!
I know. It was a bummer that they weren't the same size. The good thing though is that it is still ball joint. I was scared it would be like the 5POA swivel neck joints. Here's my Rex customized with the Clone Wars oversized helmet that I posted a while back.So, this figure's pin-sized head really made the release a bummer. Actually, the over-sized head of the Clone Wars Phase II Rex looks good on this when I hold it on there, but the pegs are different sizes...so not an easy swap.
I tried the head from AT-RT Driver from TVC - with some hair trim it looks good. One of the best clone heads there is. Anticipating your pics to see the resultIt's also irritating that the face of The Clone Wars in fact was not given a face (i.e head). Even if they wanted to go with the undersized helmet, they could have easily given us a separate Rex-head as well. Anyway, now we have him and I'm happy we at least got a realistic Rex. But I will nevertheless customise a spare Commander Neyo head and give the figure the head it deserves. I post it here when it's finished .
I did the same thing...thinking, how bad could it be? It is WAY too small. It's almost like they mixed up the heads between the last Phase II Clone Wars cartoon version and this one.I really want to see this figure in person so I can judge the size of the helmet for myself. In some pics it looks way too small and in others it's just a little bit too small. Honestly, his horrendous looking wrist joints are bothering me more than anything else. Makes his hands look completely unnatural. Captain "Fat Hands" Rex.
