Is it me or does the armor look like it's the same Hasbro used for the Stormtroopers?

It looks like they may have reused some parts. Anyone else notice how the head, torso and legs are all different shades of white?

I want to get one, but at my TRU the helmet has a greenish tint, the chest armor is white, and the legs have a slight tan tint. Very annoying.

So I'm gonna wait til I find a pure white one. Unless that is how they are suppose to look (who knows why though?).

it's all new parts. i looking at a clone vs. a stormtrooper now.

the legs are supposed to have a tannish tint because it is arena dirt.:)

Derek, I haven't compared, but I heard they have some parts that MAY be from the 12" Scout Trooper.

As for the coloring, I'm going to wait and see a clean version from KB (which means yellow or red trim), but the "dirty" regular trooper is just too dirty for my tastes.

jeditricks,

the only parts similar on the clone vs. scout trooper are the elbow pads. they are similar, but not from the same mold.:)

Hey there!

Hi I was recently at a store, and saw that they had the 12" Clone troopers <white> for sale. But I also noticed that 3 of them had a green tint to their helmets...is this a good or bad thing? as I couldnt decide and left them there!


Help much appreciated!

Sounds like a defective paint job to me. Personally I'd pass and try to get a cleaner version.

I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned sooner.

The green tint seems to be a very widespread situation based on my experience. Nearly all the Clonetroopers I've seen in Wal-Mart, Toys r Us, etc. in different areas of Pennsylvania have all had green tint helmets. Only KB had a fair amount of white helmets. That's why I held out on the figure until I found a single white helmet clone at TRU for $20.

I just had to open a Clone the other day and he is awesome, but there's one problem. His upper leg pad does not stay up. I'm wondering if mine is missing some velcoe, or did Hasbro just skip this little detail. BTW his body is pretty good and can pose him very well

like the stormtrooper armor, the clone armor is too big, hence it does not fit well. a solution for this is to pull the boots and thigh armor off, and wrap some tape around the thigh so the armor will fit snugly.

My 12" Clonetrooper is pretty white. But I've noticed some in the stores that look a little off in their white armor.

BTW, I love your avatar Derek!

And welcome to the boards Valek!

My 12" Clonetroopers leg armor stays up just fine. I wonder if the armor is diffirent.

My Clone looks like he's wearing Leg warmers.
