Do you think that he will be a variant of the SA Clone Trooper or the up-coming Target SA Clone Trooper exclusive. I hope that he isn't the target exclusive, becuase I want to recreate the scene from the trailer where is Anakin is leading a platoon of the blue troopers through the Jedi Temple.

Who knows? At this point I don't think we know if a Clone Trooper with blue markings is even slated for production let alone what he might or might not look like if it was.

From what I read, the blue clone is known as the Shocktrooper. These are the ones seen marching with Anakin into the Jedi Temple. With such a large role, I can't imagine why they wouldn't eventually release it - I just hope their not dumb enough to make it an exclusive.

It means super articulated. Target is supposed to have an Exclusive SA Clone Trooper in May.

There is really nothing known at this point about the S/A Target exclusive Clone, at least I have heard. I would guess that it will have some sort of paint app that makes it different than the regular white version, but what that'll be I don't know.

Hasbro will probably release several re-paints of the S/A mold. I would love to have the blue ones. Just hope it won't require us to jump through all of the hoops that it took to get the Lava Vader.

In the trailer when they show Aayla, there is a yellow version of the clone commander....that variant would be cool as well!! There is also a couple of regular clone troopers with yellow coloring as well.

Give it time, I am sure there will be plenty of figures to make in the upcoming months. 56 will not last long, middle of the summer at most.

I hope they don't make him an exclusive, becuase I want some of these Order 66 Clones that I am seeing in the trailers/TV Spots. Wal-mart is the only place I can get to...

The yellow variants in that frame with Aayla look like Commander Cody. He's on the cover of the Clone Wars Risk game, and you can also learn about him on the Episode III game website.

Hopefully we will get a figure of him, at any rate.

theyll defiently make more than 56 figs. I forget how many Ep. 1 figures there were, but there sure was a lot of them

What they should do since they are doing it with the Royal Guard is release the clones with different colors. Just like they did the new animated Clone Trooper. How hard would it be for HASBRO to take the #6 Clone Trooper and release it in different color variations. They could use the same mold and make tons of $$$. They could also do that with the #33 Clone Commander.

Dudes? Isn't the world f'n famous SA clone already at the store with the glass packed with it? Simon ese!(as Eddy Guerrero would say) Isn't the blue stripe an indication of the trooper being a security specialist just like the blue shouldered Battle Driods of EPI, "the best Star Wars film ever" according to Goody of the PJ's cartoon.

Actually the entire run of EP 1 basic assortment figures only totaled out to 50 and thats counting each version of the Battle Droid as an individual figure. Saga consisted of 77 figures before switching to the style with the gold strip up the side of the card. So if Hasbro continues to release the figures at this rate the ROTS line has the potential to have the biggest basic assortment by far.

How many were in POTF2, though? Counting all the card colors, of course...

It is too early to tell if the SA Clone will have variations. Maybe they will. I wouldn't mind it, really. I gotta get an army of various clones going. Right now I have a whopping ONE!

Off the yop of my head:

28 Red/Orange
52 Green
56 Freeze Frame
10 CommTech

But several of the Red/Green/Freeze Frame figures were re-carded on 2-3 different POTF2 cards. Stormtrooper and Sandtrooper for example were released on all 3 POTF2 cards.

Everything I have heard is that they will do 56 figs on ROTS then start in on their new line, which is actually about right for a Hasbro SW line.

The Clone Commander with Ms. Secura is Commander Bly. He has yellow markings on his Commander Armor.

Cody serves under General Kenobi, Bly serves under General Secura.

Commander Cody's marking are Orange, he does not have a shoulder paldron or the commander skirt and not to mention his helmet is completely different than the other Clone Commanders with a Visor, antennas, and a different mouth piece.

Both Commander Cody and Bly play a decent size role in executing Order 66 in the movie, so I would think we will get figures of both of them...Bly would be a simple repaint of the #33 Clone Commander minus the Binoculars, where as Cody would need a new shoulder with antenna and a new helmet all together.

Here's a pic of Commander Cody and a pic of Commander Bly

I would think they would make these figures. I mean come on why wouldn't they. They made all those crappy senator figures ex: orn free ta who was in the background in ep II and will have a very minor part in III. HE does not have a speaking role in ep III and they usually make these figures. They might put them in a "new series" like they did with chain and yoda and some of the other figures. I will be very dissapointed if we don't but I think they will. Only time will tell.

They can and should also make a figure for Commander Neyo. Another Clone Commander with COMPLETELY different armor.

Here's a pic of Commander Neyo (something very GI Joeish about him to me):

I would think Hasbro will eventually get around to making those Commanders. Especially given the popularity of the Clones with fans and the major role they play in the grand scheme of things, especially in this film. If the ROTS line does indeed end after 56 figures (which I seriously doubt) we'll probably see the remaining characters produced at some point as part of an all inclusive SW line.

If you can stand the spoiler chancing or just look at the pretty pictures and not try to read it take a glance trought the ROTS visual dictionary there are A LOT of different kinds of clone troopers besides the various commanders, the blue stripe, theres the red circle/ white stripe varient, the upper half red shock troopers which are local coruscant security ... etc.... we're gonna be up to our shoulders in little armored guys and really really poor when hasbro gets done with us.... that's assuming they reallize we WANT trooper variations and not the 349th Anakin/tatooine Luke/R2-D2/ variation (now with a different head sculpt, 1 more point of articulation, the new style lightsaber, and a pointless accsesory we have left over from the GI-joes we just canned)

I would perfer trooper variants to all the Anakin/Obi/Padme and so one figs.

On the SW Trivial Pursuit DVD edition, there is another variation on the clone trooper with a yellow stripe and a visor similar to the biker scout. I wonder if he is going to get his own action figure, too.

There is one out now similar to that in the BARC figure set. Looks very close to Scout Troopers...

Yeah, but the figure sucks. It has no articulation below the waist and is molded to sit on the vehicle. I would buy another one of that figure if HASBRO released it as a Basic Figure and gave it some articulation.

That's a good idea. They could also do that with Grievous's guards...the visual dictionary shows four or five different colors.

I haven't seen the visual dictionary. Can you post a pic of the different guards?

You are right about them marching with Anakin, but wrong about them being Shock Troopers.

The red ones are Shock Troopers. The blue ones are Special Ops.
