Because we cannot post in the Clone Wars section, I'll post here. Much credit to Jedidefender.com on this one, as well as Black Sheep Toys.

Clone Trooper Lieutenant:


Strangely enough, I think these animated Clone Troopers look really cool. I might end up with a sizeable force for my AT-TEs.

Anyway, enjoy the pictures and remember to credit both Jedidefender.com and Black Sheep Toys when re-posting these pictures.

Re: Clone Trooper Officers

Why is the Commander orange instead of yellow?

In any case, I'll pick one of these up (either plain Clone or Commander) and paint it in 327th markings. The stylized armor could always make for a nifty Scout or Light Trooper

Darth Anton, they do, but for some reason I cannot post in that forum.

Re: Clone Trooper Officers

I'll probably pass on these.

By the way, the stripe on the crest of the helmet should come all the way down the front of the forehead/dome area, but it doesn't, similar to the error on the TSC Clone Sergeant.

This is because only admins or mods can create threads in the TCW and TLC sections.

So starting a thread in the wrong section wasn';t the smartest thing to do....next time, just alert one of us and we'll start a thread ourselves. Cool?

Re: Clone Trooper Officers

Fair enough, Mr. Curto. I was just thinking I had limited posting abilities or something of that nature. I didn't know it applied to everyone. Is there any reason why this forum and the Legacy collection are closed to people starting new topics?

Looks like they have removable helmets. Otherwise not impressed with these.

Yes, this is an intentional change for these two forums, since members were asking for more moderation. It's also easier for the mods to keep control of the various threads and eliminates duplicate threads, which are a problem at times.

It's nothing personal at all against any one member, just an experiment we tried out.

Truthfully, I think it's worked out rather well. I wish we'd done it before!

Re: Clone Trooper Officers

That makes a lot of sense, especially for a high traffic website such as this. I do apologize once again for my messing up of the system, I didn't know about the new rules. I hope everything is cool.

So is this permanent for the TLC and CW lines, or will it be lifted once the lines have officially hit? I imagine for someone with a specific urgent question (which wouldn't fit an existing thread) it'd be great if he could start a topic on his own, instead of mailing the staff and waiting for it to be posted.

Use the General Discussion Thread in whatever forum you have a question in.

On topic, I knew something looked off about these guys (besides the animated style that I still don't like for the toys), and the front page posting confirmed it...the stripe. I haven't watched the clips of the movie much, so I don't remember if any of the officers were in there or not, but if they have the full stripe like in the movies and Hasbro messed this up again...sigh.

Re: Clone Trooper Officers

Just to answer...we'll consider it once the lines start up.

Back on topic (sorry for the detour), I have to say i'm surprised the clone officers don't have the stripe. Especially after the issues that arose last year: full stripe/half stripe, high thin dots/low thick dots....I notice these don't have dots at all.

Of course, it's POSSIBLE that the clone officers in the animated series don't even HAVE dots or stripes...we don't know yet, but that would be a change made by Lucasfilm, not Hasbro...and that could be what caused the issues last year.

The mind boggles....

Re: Clone Trooper Officers

Wow. These look much worse than I imagined. I know that these are done in the animated style, but I don't like the detailing (or lack of) in the figures. I will definitely be passing up on these.

Again, might be good custom fodder. The helmet design is growing on me.

Re: Clone Trooper Officers

The more I see of this line's offerings, the more I'm thinking I won't be collecting it. Kinda regretting ordering the mail-in Captain Rex figures now.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

I've seperated the clones into 2 threads, please use this thread to discuss the Clone Trooper Lieutenant figure.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

I can't wait to get one to add to my blue clones collection! He looks great. And I love that they all come with 3 guns. I really hope that feature continues.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

I like some of the animated figures and others not so much. This one I don't care for. Maybe it's the post of angle? I have liked the all white versions and Rex but not this or the yellow version.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

The lack of weathering that somewhat redeemed the other clones is absent here, so this is a pass.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

Maybe in the cartoon, it doesn't have the stripe, hence why it doesn't have it....so it's accurate to the cartoon....same with the dots.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

If the orange one is the 212th, I'm wondering if this guy is a 501st. I kinda hope not because he is a little bland.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

This has to be a 501st or regular Trooper. Considering that the last clone we saw that we thought was a Commander or whatever that didn't have dots or stripes, this is gonna be a regular clone.

That's also my feeling. He looks bland but after all, his captain (Rex) doesn't really have specific 501st markings either. Moreover, the phase 1 212th trooper looks quite bland too as his markings look nothing like those of the phase 2 armors in RotS...
BTW, one thing makes me doubt he belongs to the 501st... the blue on his armor isn't really similar to that on captain Rex's armor. However, this is perhaps due to the fact the above figure is a prototype (or perhaps due to Hasbro screwing up with the 501st colours once again...).

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

Ha! I know! The TSC 'Sergeant' is missing his green stripe on the helmet so he MUST be from the 442nd Attack Battalion!


This is getting ridiculous. No offense to Hasbro, they just have to work with what Lucas delivers. This makes no sense whatsoever as preparation for the markings we see in RotS.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

Stinks that he is a WM exclusive. Hopefully they will have tons per store because people are going to want to army build him. I would be good with 2.

Re: Clone Trooper Lieutenant

OK... so once again, 2 different colours for two characters belonging to a same corps...

BTW, those markings really suck. We can barely see the difference with a lieutenant (also, we can now perhaps change the title of the topic).
