Obi-Wan Kenobi & 212th Attack Battalion Clone Pack

We'll seperate this from the other thread so please use this thread to discuss the Clone Trooper Commander figure be it a variation or a seperate release...

Picture from JD

So who's going to buying this one?

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

I'd consider this one, if they gave him the thicker rifle...instead of that flimsey thing they call a rifle.

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

I enjoy the non-helmet stripe figures. Though inaccurate, I think it looks better. Both the Lieutenant and the Commander are definite maybes for myself, they have good custom potential.

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

WTF!?! What is this, a plaything for Barbie? What an anorexic piece of feces. And, as Dan pointed out, where are the dots and stripes that were such a concern for LFL during TAC? Since this takes place between Ep. 2 & 3, and we clearly see dots on the clones in Ep. 2, there's really no excuse. Way to blow, Hasbro/LFL/everybody else involved...

It's only a prototype, not the final product.

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

it sucks that as a commander they won't let you have a rocket launcher

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

LOL, rocket launchers are for clones who can't aim!

No, they're for noobs.


He'd look fine if he only had the right paint job.


The carbine looks like osik but the rifle's clip makes it OK in my book!

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

Having just checked the 2nd Theatrical Trailer I can confirm the figure is correctly painted.
There are no chest dots on two yellow Clone Commanders that are in frame and neither do their helmet stripes go all the way up to the fin.

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

But is this guy orange in the CW 3d series or does the lighting make the figure look like that? The AotC Commanders wore bright yellow markings.

What the?


Anyways, are these all going to packaged on one card like the previous clone trooper officers from the old animated series, and the saga legends officers?

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

yes, like all the other clone troopers. its nice because the phase 1 troops are shown using both the blaster and rifle in the upcoming movie.

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

unlike the last one the rifle was mostly used or the dual pistols now we see both guns in action.

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

I would expect more paint on a 212th Clone. Kinda lame. Still, this would give me 4 clones to go into my fodder bucket. Hmmmm.

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

I quite like the look of it, kinda goes against whats been established with colours but still nice for army building. Hope they do like Grevous wiht magna guards, and assaj with maybe 2 super battle droids and 2 battle droids. Hasbro are great for throwing out clones, but it makes it hard to army build droids

Re: Clone Trooper Commander

Those are 2 good ideas. Maybe Hasbro will try those.

Since Yoda and Obi-Wan have an upcoming BP with 4 clones, I bet we'll see a BP of Anakin with 4 of his JetPack Clones.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi & 212th Attack Battalion Clone Pack

Nice pack, it's a good way to build up some clones but the only bad part is Obi-Wan being included

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi & 212th Attack Battalion Clone Pack

I like the idea myself. I wish they would have done this with the movie clonetroopers. Not now though of course since we already got those troopers single packed.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi & 212th Attack Battalion Clone

I'll most certainly buy this is Commander Cody is released individually. The fact that he is in the preview makes it inevitable. Both of these battle packs (yoda/troopers) are pretty nice.

However, I'd trade em for a good Asajj BP any day.

Re: Obi-Wan Kenobi & 212th Attack Battalion Clone

These guys' paint color looks more like 327th yellow than 212th orange. What's up with that?
