yessss

Though I wish they just stopped the removeable helmet(non-removeable aka glued in this case) and just give a solid helmet. That helmet looks a little soft and squished.

Near the greatest snow on Earth.
It kind of irks me that the grunt gets the new superior body and the recent Lieutenant gets the old mold. I know it fits with the other officers, but I don't care - I wanted them all to be reissued and use the newer body.

Agreed. There is potential for a helmet to be glued on crooked the way they are doing it now. I have also been hearing that the bands for the elbow pads tend to break. Personally, I'd take durability over increased articulation. I could live with the articulation of the old mold and the Rex mold.

That said, I will be ordering multiples of these. I just have to hope I get properly fitted helmets and the elbow bands don't eventually break.

Yay, another redo. I'm glad now because I could never find the first Phase I Clone Trooper.
However, I wonder if they're going to remake all the commanders as well, only to reveal another new mold afterwards. :cautious:

Found two of these at Target today. LOVE them. Was put off by the rounder, larger helmet at first, but honestly I kind of prefer it to the classic mold (shown here with the other New Molds, and also with the new Lt. for comparison)

Thanks for the comparison shots. That Clone Trooper Lieutenant looks really off white in comparison to the new Clone Troopers. If I didn't know better, I would think the Lieutenant was an older figure which had yellowed with age.

At least that means it fits in with the other Phase 1 Commanders that have been sitting on my shelves for years 😂

Wow that looks 10x better then the clone from Walgreens.

Definitely want to see more Phase 1 clones going forward though, few commanders and named clones would be easy money makers for Hasbro.

Agreed, this new mold is so good. And I like Phase 1s more than Phase 2, so I'm overjoyed. Really think I'll pick any up if I happen to find more on shelves (ordering online would result in me spending way too much money, but leaving it to fate I can kind of justify!).

A few more comparison shots:

Thanks for the comparison, C234! New helmet looks good in the profile shots, old one definitely looks better from the front. Right side of the new helemt is crooked (at least on this copy).

Anyone have this and a model kit clone head to try some sort of swap? The helmet of this looks horrible. Pulled out my model clone today and it's just better still. Shame they are impossible to get right now since covid.

I got mine yesterday and boy is his helmet warped. No amount of heating is fixing it, it's like the mold itself was lopsided...
That sucks, and it makes me nervous about the two I ordered. I also have yet to receive the four Stormtroopers I ordered, and I am concerned about the condition in which they will arrive. If I can find good ones at a store, I'd buy them and cancel my pre-orders.

Found this figure and the rest of the wave this morning at Walmart. I was going to pick up this guy, but the wavy visor and brow looked horrible (just like in C234's pictures above), plus the gray paint apps for the frown missed and were too low on the helmet. I'll wait and see if any later deliveries look better.
