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.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.
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 yearsThanks 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.
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!).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.
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.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...
For movie/"Realistic" Clones, the only difference between Phase I and II was the helmet. The rest of the armor was exactly the same. Animated Clone Wars style has some differences between Phase I and II, but, that does impact the Back Series figures. So, yes, this new body could be reused for all the Phase II Clones.People who are greater clone experts than me can detail the armor differences in the Phase I versus Phase II clones. Could this sculpt be ported over to be used in Phase II clones like a new 501st clone, shocktrooper, etc.? They could case-pack the 501st clones in this sculpt and they'd barely make it out of the shipping boxes at stores, assuming Black Series figures are ever seen in stores again.
