I have been mulling over this for awhile and have posted about Cody in the past but the question still remains. Why didn't Hasbro make a Commander Cody for the ROTS line ??????

If you think about it we got the Red Clone Commander who has what mere seconds of screentime, Bacara same only seconds, the Green Clone Commander who I not even sure if this guy is in the movie, Commander Bly, again seconds of screentime, plus the yellow Clone Commander from the evolutions set, we are getting Gree, and while he did have more then a few seconds, perhaps a few minutes, Cody played a larger part in the movie. It strikes me as funny that Hasbro produced more the of minor background Commanders then one that actual had dialogue, and more then 2 seconds of screentime.

Yes I am a big supporter of Commander Cody and think that when and if (since there is no real sources stated that he will be made) he should come with the SA Clone body with minor alterations, removable helmet, blaster rifle, holographic mini Lord Sidious, ala Order 66, and Obi Wan's lightsaber hilt that can be attached to his belt. :thumbsup:

I cant understand it. But the only explanation I can give is its Hasbro. You should be used to it by now

Well one thoery is that Hasbro held this one back to sell at a later date to help either keep up interest or renew interest. Well, at least that's what Hasbro might be saying now. I think they just dropped the ball. They saw snippets of the movie during prodution and got to see some of the clones. Not all of those clones though mad eit into the movie, hence part of the reason why we have clones like the Red commander.

Not just this, but I think Hasbro was hoping to save money by not having to sculpt another helmet and all of the other accessories needed to make a Cody figure.

Rumors abound that we are getting him in 2006. It remains to be seen. I'm a patient enough person though, so I'll wait. If he doesn't come out then it looks like a custom job is in order for me.

Id like a Cody figure too, but it doesnt look like its going to happen right now. But something tells me we will see him fairly soon. Im sure Hasbro is well aware of the fans desire to have a Cody figure.

If they do make a Cody figure, it should have a removeable helmet and come with Obi-Wans saber hilt.

He was in the background when Obi-Wan is getting ready to board the Star Destroyer headed for Utapau.

I thought Cody was announced for 06 in the Saga Deux line?

Ya know hasbro just announced that due to overwhelming fan demand they have decided not to cancel the 7 inch unleashed line...so I don't see how that making a petition to make commander cody could be a bad thing.

The only Clone trooper in Episode III to have something of a personality and they decide to exclude hime from becoming a figure. I guess Hasbro thought Commanders Bly, Gree, and Bacara are more important.

We should keep in mind the long lead-time required to get a line off the ground. What characters are featured heavily in an early script (hello Mon Mothma) or presentation to the toymakers (Utapau Security) may not make it into the final mix well after the figure has been developed, approved and packaged into the line.
The Red Commander, while not featured in the film, WAS featured in some advance press (an Insider cover & article for one) so I guess there is a little logic there.
Another thing....note how this flood of redeco'd clones are basically spun off the SAME figures, all containing the same helmet design and basic accessories. Very little work on Hasbro's part past the initial devo of the figure.

Our buddy Cody on the other hand...he'll require (if he's going to be done right) a new figure. He features a different helmet design, shoulder paldrons, arm detailing and of course, deco.

I'm hoping that his omission from the ROTS line means that we can expect a properly done figure of him in the future...not just a cobbled-together version out of what Hasbro has out there now (hello Gree). Dare I say...I'd go for a deluxe figure of this character if it were done with the care of an Evolution-style figure (multi-arct/intense detailing) and included ALL of the relevent accessories for this guy from multiple weapons to interchangable hands (to hold weapons, grasp a lightsaber hilt or recieve a certain holo-message) to a removable helmet.

Commander Cody has initiated a geniune spark of interest in the collector-based fans...c'mon Hasbro...step up to the plate and do this character justice...we know you can!!

i read in the latest toyfare... '06 release date. it was next to a sick custom of cody that recently sold on ebay for $71. the one that we'll get before that is the animated version in the commemorative box set.

I agree, they should make a fig of him.
