Anyone notice that we did get a look at the upcoming Yellow Clonetrooper Pilot on the back of the box for the Republic Gunship. He does have the Republic Symbol on his helmet, as well as some sort of chest box. He looks really cool, can't wait to see the actual figure. We also got a sneak-peek of the Deluxe CloneTrooper's Speeder Bike on the back of the box. :)

Thanks Jar Jar, they look great, the Clone Pilot looks alot like an AT-AT Pilot after close inspection!

I was actually just about to report this. :D

The box on the figure is the same as the TIE Pilot and AT-AT Driver boxes, guess they need the boxes also.

Thankx for the pics JarJarBinks, those clone pilots look great and I can't wait to get them. Gunship,Pilots, and speeder bike, what a diorama that's going to be. The pilots though may be different from the actual yellow clonetroopers right ?

Speeder bike looks to be just a freaking repaint! Well it might come with some cool stuff.

Judging by the movie, there is a big difference between the Pilots and Commanders. The Yellow CloneTrooper pilots have the republic symbol on their helmets, and no fin. They also have a chest box. And they don't have yellow stripes down the front of their helmets or down their arms. Where as the Yellow Commander Clonetroopers are in the same armor as the regular CloneTroopers, just with yellow accents painted similar to on the red one. :)

Theres a picture of the cannons that come with the Pilot Clones. Kinda ugly looking, I was hoping they'd be like from the movie, smaller of course but clear like the wings cannons and would be on pipes that went outwards like the ones in the movie.

Neat. I hope we get some clearer shots of the speeder soon.

It's close to what they were like in the movie, but the bubble actually enclosed the gunner. Scale wise, it would have been impossible though. And putting a lil miniture gunner inside them would have looked silly. So, while it's not totally movie accurate, I can see why they did it that way though. You can still have a gunner now if you wanted, even though it's not 100% accurate. :)

I agree, I don't normally buy vehicles(partially because I can't find them), but I might make an exception in this case.

Did anyone else notice that the Clonetrooper pilot helmet strongly resemble the AT-AT driver's helmet?

LTBasker

Yeah, one thing I noticed is that the TIE Pilot and AT-AT Driver's helmets use the Stormtrooper helmet face part, and the Clone Pilot's helmet uses the Clone Trooper helmet face part.

Here's a link to a picture from the movie of the CloneTrooper Pilot. Looks like Hasbro did a pretty good job getting the figure movie accurate. Can't wait for this one. BTW, thanks go out to Big Barada for originally posting the image. :)

Heres a clearer pic of the Speeder Bike I was able to get by enhancing the image a little. It is indeed the same mold as the other speeder bikes. Interesting way to pack it though. If they made an AT-TE to scale (be about as big as the POTF2 AT-AT) then they should add a hold with some of these which would be cool.

The clone speeder is the POTF2 speeder with the outriggers removed. :D

If you mean the front part, it's tucked under it because that's a picture of it "packed" away in the Gunship. If you look at the full picture of the back of the box you can see the speeder on the back angled wall.

Can someone post the picture of the gunner bubbles that come with the Clone Pilot? I know someone linked to rebelscum for the pic but that site takes several minutes to load up for me.

The clone pilot looks pretty cool, I can't wait to see the actual figures. I haven't bought any Ep2 vehicles yet, but the Gunship might just be the first one.:cool:

Sorry about that BigB, that's why I will usually attach the images from there here. Their site is slower then mollasses for some people. So, here ya go, Big Barada. :D

Thanks, Jar Jar!:cool: The gunpods look pretty cool, not what I expected exactly; but still pretty cool.

Yeah, they are pretty cool. Not movie correct, since the ship isn't 100% to scale. But good enough that it looks ok as a toy. Much better that way, then if they would have done large oversized bubbles to hold a figure. Or mini-bubbles with a small under-scale CloneTrooper inside. :)

Probably, nothing rumored on the immedate horizon. Got another 2-1/2 years before E3, so plenty of time for more Clones. As for a half mature clone, you could buy extra Boba Fett's. :)
