awww, battle droid, you beat me to the scoop!

i love the fact that cody won't be made with that blasted at-te gunner mold! i think since the upside down belt was corrected for the utapau shadow trooper (or was it the covert ops? i don't have either one readily availalbe to check), it should be corrected in time for released of this wave. or maybe we'll see variants with some upside down, some right side up? ;)

I could've sworn that we already got a Shocktrooper.:rolleyes: I don't care that he may have a horizontal slash instead of a vertical one it looks exactly the same. They're getting really carried away with all of these damn clones.

These guys look great! I especially dig the firefighter. Fan-favorite Cody also looks good-although the face underneath looks funky. Then again these are hand-painted samples. Would be nice if Cody came with a little holo Emperor (Hasbro even has a mould of a holo Sidious that came with Dooku and Lot Dodd back in the Saga days)

Get the first Jedi Council set they made; I think it was the Mace Windu one. It had a funky little hologram coming up out of the floor. Cut it off and put in in Cody's hand; it'll look awesome.

I can't wait to get my hands on these figures. I have been waiting for Cody since he first graced the screen in ROTS. The fire pilot looks awesome and willpick up about 5 Utapau clones. Will look great for my Utapau display i'm working on. Might have to pick up a few Cody's though, customize a one or two and use the others in different scenes. I'm also working on the Star Destroyer hanger scne as well.

CODY IS HERE !!!!!!!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Cody looks good as does his troop. Since we never saw the firefighter, I'll just take their word for it.

Wow!!!!!! Cody and the Utapau trooper look freaking sweet.:D The Fire pilot looks great as well. I cant wait to get my hands on these guys. Hasbro has finally done something right.:thumbsup: Now to perfect Cody all they would have to do is include a mini-holo Sidious/Palpatine that can fit in his hand and the figure would fly of the shelves like wild fire.:yes:

Since we never saw the firefighter, I'll just take their word for it.He's kinda like most of the Cantina aliens. We see his head and maybe a little of his upper body but Hasbro just makes up the rest.

like 'em or not, they're here to stay, Slicker. i take it you're not an army builder? :p

even hasbro has to realize what a cash cow they have with the clones. all they have to do is repaint the same 41 mold over and over again and collectors will buy them in droves. look at it this way...the more that i and others buy up every clone, the more money it puts in hasbro's pockets to make the molds for the figures that you actually do want.

I 100% realize that people like love clones and naturally Hasbro is gonna release them but, although yellow, the Utupau Clone looks just like the Shocktrooper and the Cmdr. Cody looks just like the Clone Commander from the Evo. set. The Fire Pilot is something else too. He looks like one of those Action Man figures that you dress up in all of the different outfits. This particular one looks like "Deep Sea Expedition Action Man".

I'm not saying that I don't like them, in fact I like all 3 of these but all that they're doing now is just changing paint apps (well, they've been doing it since AOTC but it's getting worse now).

DAMN, these look sweet!!! Was Cody that scarred in the film? He looks a little overdone, but I'll keep the helmet on anyway. Nice work Hasbro! :thumbsup:

I didn't realize that till I looked closely at my loose Jedi Council. Sure enough, there he is. Don't know if I want to cut him. Perfect size for Cody. They should still include the Holo Emperor as an accessory, along with an Obi-Wan Lightsaber hilt. Cody also appeared as a Hologram in the movie. Would be nice to see a 3.75 Holo of him. Till then this Cody looks way cool! Glad they are making him from the #41 mold.

:eek: Bite your tongue!!! That's blaspheme around here!

Cody looks great as does the Pilot, and of course we've already seen the Utuapa clone. It's just too bad we'll never get a ship for the pilot!:cry:

I will be getting one of each, possibly two of the fireman. He looks as though you could put him in the cantina. I am pleased with the clones.

Wait! Hasn't ANYONE else noticed that the orange on the chest of the Utapau Clone is WRONG!!!

The color part should NOT be going straight across, but rather as a downward pointing triangle. See here (next to the blue clone on the right):

Dont' get me wrong. I'm happy to finally be getting this clone, but that's one of the two major areas for coloration (the other being the head, IMO). They should have got this right. Looks like I'll have to custom these guys. Damnit, that's what I was hoping to avoid.

I didn't even notice that until you mentioned it!!! What's sad is that I have the Unleashed battle pack versions right here next to me, and they got the chest coloration right on those!! Amazing quality control they've got, eh? :D

Another paint oddity (this time on on Commander Cody): Everyone knows that the belt on the #41 clone sculpt is upside down. Apparently, so does the painter at Hasbro. I did a comparison between the figure and the pic of Cody in the visual dictionary, and if you turn the belt on the figure right side up, the paint app is correct. As it appears on the figure, it is backward.

Also...there is a difference between the Cody and the Trooper at the legs. The hip joints look different.

Does anybody remember what Cody's unit was called?

Whatever. Its just a minor detail. At least everything else is right. If no one noticed til now, then they wont really notice or really care when they get the figure. And besides these figures are still prototypes so maybe Hasbro will fix this along with Cody's silver eyebrows.

Good job Hasbro! I really can't wait until pictures from Toy Fair are released on what to expect for next year. I really am missing the Galactic Marines. That would be a nice addition to the selection of clones offered.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
01-01-2006, 03:23 PM
Hopefully they'll change the coloration on his chest before production . . . it wouldn't be the first time that the paint apps got changed on a figure.

It will likely be fixed by the time they show up at retail. I'm pleased with all of them based on what we're seeing in the pics. :thumbsup:

I'm curious to know, in one of the links above, there was a picture of the different clone troopers, and the one on the far left looks like the snowtroopers but with a red top on the helmet. Did anyone see them in the movie, and if so, where?

You would think they would have pictures of the different clonetrooper color schemes to work on while painting these.

The Lee's picture of the Utapau Clone looks wrong, but keep in mind these are all hand-painted samples. The picture released on EE a while ago of the clone hanging out with the Geonosis gang appears to be more accurate. Check out this comparison pic I made.:thumbsup: :whip:

jedi master sal
01-03-2006, 09:30 AM
I guess what I'm trying to say about the chest paint error is this:
THey got it RIGHT with the Shadow trooper! Except that that one was balck and dark grey. Swap out the colors and you HAVE the Utapau trooper. There's NO excuse from Hasbro if they screw this up. They've already proven that they can and have done that exact paint markings. (Just in different colors)

Ok, I'll quit griping.

jedibear
01-03-2006, 10:12 PM
Let's not forget that as the pics from Lee's (and Vadervette reminds us) point out, these are handpainted production samples, not the final versions and...the figures have the unique habit of looking way better in person than these photos make them appear.
And Jayspawn...I respectfully disagree with your assessment of the Firefighter...some of the coolest figures lately as far as detailing, articulation. accessories and appearence have been of characters that were really in the background or just a quick appearence onscreen Some examples...Bo Shek, Bespin Guard, Cloud Car Pilot, Dutch Vander, Myo & Feltpenn Travegg to name a few. I think the Firefighter might be another entry in that group....

I'd like them to make the Galactic Marines (Mygeeto, Bacara's unit)

the Kashyyyk Scout Troopers (Commander Gree's unit). Then I think I'm good with the clones. Although I suppose I'd buy a few yellow ones not in Evolution sets (Cmdr. Bly's unit).

I agree with a lot of what's being said here, except in the Jedi Council set, the hologram is supposed to be Obi-Wan Kenobi reporting from Kamino with his hood up and in the pouring rain.

At such a small scale and out of the context of the Council set though, you can't see that it's Obi-Wan. It simply looks like a hooded figure. If you clip that piece off the council floor and place it in a clone's hand, it could very easily look like Darth Sidious' hologram.

My anxiety is greatly relieved. I just saw a link to a carded pic of the Utapau Trooper and he is definitely (at least by that carded shot) on the #41 sculpt. It appears that the paint app on the chest is not corrected to the tapered point. But I really don't care about that.

I just caught this shot of the Firespeeder Pilot in EIII. This is during the scene when Obi-Wan is talking to Commander Cody in the hangar as he is getting into his Jedi Starfighter to go to Utapau. We have a full body shot from the movie to compare the figure to after all.

I noticed these guys when I was watching that scene the other day to check on Obi-Wan's blue starfighter. Nice to see that these guys were indeed in full body costumes sometime in the film.

This wave is alreadyhitting shelves. I have personally got two sets of each. First wave of these comes as follows. 2 vaders, 2 clones,1 firespeeder pilot, 1 Lushros Dofine, 1 clone commander cody, 1 anakin skywalker, 1 holo Ki Adi Mundi, 1 obi wan, 1 foul moudama, 1 general grievous. At least i hink thats what it had.lolthere where 3 boxes and two were the new ones and the other a different wave assorment of others. But codys gonna be hard to find, scalpers are taking him up due to the fact hes selling anywhere from 25-40 bucks on ebay.
