Ok first here is a link to a LEGO minigif. A little hard to see, but the name under the Blue Clone Commander is small enough and indeed looks like "Rex."

So here are some shots from the animated trailer of "Rex" if he is indeed the Blue Commander Clone.

Seems my assumption may have been right then. He looks cool enough. Guess I can pick one up.

Repaint of Alpha?

No, I kind of doubt this one will be a repaint. Maybe a kitbash.
Maybe this recipe:
Alpha Body
Clone Commander Paulron
New Kama
Then new paint apps to match.

In the trailer, I thought that WAS Alpha (Dave Filoni mentioned Alpha at least once during the CIV presentation). We'll see.

The Togruta (like Shaak Ti) has a different name; I remember them saying she'd be a new character. What's that green thing next to her?

A baby Hutt I think.

Hmm, it does look like it says "Hutt." I thought it was a deformed Yoda. :D

John, I think they're getting the Evil Monkey to play "Hutt" in Family Guy ROTJ. :thumbsup:

"Rex" looks like he has the "Boba Fett eyes" painted on his helmet from the early ESB concept drawings. That's kinda cool.:yes:

The Togruta's name is Asoka

I've got tons of UPCS' so I might as well trade them in for Rex figures.

Captain Rex? Shouldn't it be Lieutenant Rex? I thought red markings were Captains, blue for lieutenants.

White—Private
Green—Sergeant
Blue—Lieutenant
Red—Captain
Yellow—Commander

Isn't this the ranking system used by the clones, and ARCs?

I'm sure they'll figure out a way around that one Jangu.

Ok, if you needed more proof, here is a MUCH clearer pic of the LEGO figs. Rex is CLEARLY marked and is the very same trooper as originally posted and seen in the CW trailer as well.

They'll probably use the Alpha body for him, and why not, they're cranking it out for every other ARC style we're getting this year.

For the clones yes for the ARCs No if your an Arc you can pick your colour they want CC-8826, nicknamed Neyo was a commander and his where red Commander Gree was green so the arc dont really have a ranking system

But, as we all now know, Rex isn't an ARC Trooper (nor are any of the clones seen in AOTC, ROTS, or the new cartoon), and they got rid of the aforementioned color system very early on in the war (it was already outdated by the time of the new series, which is apparently about six months into the war) so that the clones essentially pick their own colors now.
