I was customizing a Clone Trooper for my son the other night from a design on the new "Jedi" poster. If you haven't seen it there's a couple of links below. There's also a "Sith" poster which features the "other half" of Anakin's face, but as the Darth Vader mask. The two posters are made to be hung next to each other. Anyway, I found out that there are two variations of this poster. The first link shows the Red Armor clone trooper design I used for my custom figure on the bottom right-hand corner. The second link shows a variation with a Yellow Trooper, Clone Commander, and standard Clone Trooper, but not the Red Armor Trooper that appears in my poster. I got mine at Wal-Mart. Anyone have the other one? Any idea why the two variations?

EDIT: Just noticed a couple of other differences...the Jedi "logo" at center is larger on one, and the wookies are in a different pose...

We bought those posters for my Boys' room. They love it, and I have to admit it looks really cool... :)

They moved nearly all the elements around from "Jedi" v1 to v2, but the only actual removed elements from v1 are the 3 tiny ARC-170s and indeed that red trooper. My best guess is that the poster was done up with art supplied by Lucasfilm, but then Lucas changed how the trooper looked in the movie afterwards and the poster had to be changed to match that - Lucas has done this sort of thing with the previous 2 prequels as well, the pipe on Dex and the Kahouns with R2 in the Saga line and the 2-headed Announcer figure with Jabba in the Ep 1 line. (There are other changes as well, but those spring to my mind first.)
