Great news. I think that's the last major group of clones that hasn't been released, right?(I'm not counting the Kashyyk scouts because technically those were released).

I want this figure, actually I want about 10 of them. This is awesome news! While initially I want this one individually carded, in time might make for one tight battlepack

This is good news indeed. Hopefully this clown won't win the ToyFare poll. :D

So, what does this guy look like then?

Oh, boy. They're just going to slap some red paint on the Saga Snowtrooper. I hate to be a downer, but everyone knows that as well as I do.

This is literally the ONLY clone from the movie that I have wanted. Mainly because of what Chux just said. It's a snowtrooper (the most awesomest of the OT troopers) and it's painted red (my favorite color).

I still hate clones but this one looks better than ALL of the others.

OH! Them. I thought those guys had different helmets. I hope they don't use the Saga snowtrooper body, it's awful.

Slicker

The helmet is slightly different.

The one really main difference is around the eyes. The snowtrooper has a ridge around them almost as if they're goggles whereas the marine has the lenses almost blended in.

Ah yes, I remember seeing that guy now. He'd make a cool figure. His armor is more different from the Snowtrooper than believed, compare the arms and legs in those photos.

Yeah, after seeing those pics, there are a lot of differences between the two. I really don't thnk Hasbro will be able to get away with just a repainted snowtrooper (although I still won't put it past them).

I wonder if these Marines will look the soldier in my Avatar? :D

I'm stoked though- Ep 3 Clones ROCK! Even if they are rainbow colored now...(Darn Mace troops...)

I would love to see this figure. If this is true, and I will wait till 2007 to be sure, I'd get about 5 or so.

I'll get between 20-40. Lower if the articulation isn't good. Higher if it's SA or close to SA.

I'm not going as crazy for these as I did Utapau clones. I build armies based on how many you see in the movies. We saw tons of Utapau troopers, so I bought alot of them. We didn't see as many Galactic Marines, hence not so many. Besides taking account of OUR real military, there are by no means anywhere near the amount of Marines compared to regular Army. So my building them in these numbers holds true to this.

I just want one of each, painted decently, opened, thanks :D (Maybe two if they come with the pistol and rifle accessories :p)

Sign me up for at least 5! Now if they could pump out some Kashyyk BARC troopers that actually move!!!

Slicker, why do you hate clones?


Anyway, I like the GMs. But, the fact their officer (toywise) is terrible will be a deterrent.

Bacara is an easy custom though. Switch helmets with either a #6 or #41 (I forget which one works better). Switch the belts/kama. Move the shoulder armor/strap to the new body and BAM you've got an SA Bacara. Only takes one other figre to make this and NO painting or sculpting. Easy as pie!

So no excuses...heh heh.

actually sal, the #6 won't really work because the belt is molded to the figure and so bacara's skirt won't fit onto it. and with the #41, you have to slice into the belt to take it off and then you can fit on the skirt.

Okay so there is "Some assembly required" but not too much that it should be a pain for even the novice customizer.

I still have yet to do it. Not because I can't, but because I've been lazy with customizing lately. (Get me that ELO F_B, PLEASE and I'll get crackin' on the customs.)

Hopefully Hasbro will have the decency to A) make it an all new figure and B) disregard it from the fans choice poll. If you ask me this proves that clones don't need to be voted for in fans choice polls. Hasbro actually want to make them. With Fans choice we should force their hands into making figures they otherwise are reluctant to do.

I was aware of how easy this would be to customize. But, I really should not have to.

I likely will though. I just need to pick up a Bacarra figure.

I am wishful thinking, but it would be really nice if these have removeable helmets and super articulation! I am going to have to get a few of these because I love snowtroopers.

Slicker

I'm wishful thinking by hoping that it has the POTF2 6 POA just to pi55 people off so they can have an honest reason to "complain" about it not being SA. That would be great!!!

I'm amused by this for some reason :D

Maybe because I still own a dozen of the old Snowtroopers loose X-D

...I liked 'em :p

but it's fun to customize!!! who knows, you might enjoy it so much that you'll take it up as another hobby like i did. i started out repainting ROTS clones and now i've done all sorts of alien jedi customs.

I'm excited about the prospect of Galactic Marines. I'd buy 7-8 of those guys so Commander Bacara can finally have some troops.
