Can Oddball be used as just a generic pilot or is there something special about him? I have 2 V-19 Torrents that I need pilots for, also I guess I will need pilots for the upcoming Gunships & ARC-170's.

I'm wondering the same thing. He looks pretty generic to me, so hopefully he can pass for just a regular clone pilot.

I seem to remember Oddball being the same as the AOTC Gunship Pilot, but he had a red imperial logo on his helmet instead of the regular black one. I could be wrong, as it was just a brief moment we got to see him. http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=/swsaga/sw0249clonepilotblaster.jpg

This figure needs to be re-issued or redone. There are 3 different pilots from Clone Wars that haven't been made yet so far:

Coruscant Clone Pilot (Clone Wars cartoon- his helmet might be slightly different but it's not ROTS open face style)
Arc Pilot (Clone Wars cartoon- his helmet looks like a slightly different shape too)
Oddball (Clone Wars CGI- same as AOTC Pilot with possible slightly different paint apps?)

Even with the red insignia, he looks generic enough to me.

I wonder why Hasbro hasn't gotten on the stick with the Phase I clone pilots...?

I'll never really understand why the Clone Pilots are wearing any armor at all below the waist. It must be extremely uncomfortable sitting for long periods of time with full body armor on.

Venturing a guess or two, it might have something to do with the Kaminoans not completely understand human physiology. I think I read this in some EU material, possibly one or two of the RC books by Karen Traviss. It's along the same lines as the Phase I armor not always fitting properly and pinching in certain places.

It also might allow some survivability if the pilots have to pick up a blaster and fight along with their brothers when they're not flying or if they have to eject during atmospheric flight.

Just a few thoughts. I always wondered why Phase I and Phase II pilot armor was so radically different.

BB - I have the answer why they do it, the answer is are you ready for this, can you handle this, can you handle the truth...........
















Tune in next week when the answer is revealed, Attack of the Clone Armor.:thumbsup:

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, they had better plastic than we do.

Someone pointed out he had a different helmet or something. The Evolutions set had and AOTC clone pilot.

I've noticed in the movie that every clone pilot has there own colors on there helmet, there all different. Im reaaly hoping that they rerelease him in different colors or ill be very disapointed.

Hasbro probably will not release any character from the new Clone Wars in realistic style, till the whole animated figure thing has run it's course. I wouldn't think they would want the two lines competing.

I would hope they all get released in Legacy "realistic" style in due time like Legacy wave 2 from the original cartoon series.

Meanwhile there are still plenty of characters to do from the Clone Wars cartoon, that can be done in the Legacy line without competing with the new animated series figures.

So did we figure out an answer? Is he an individual or can he be used as a generic pilot?

I vote generic pilot.

They could release the Clone Pilot in the "legends" line. I think an AOTC Pilot would be very popular given the amount of Clone Wars ships to be released this year. Though I think the Evolutions one is a superior figure.

I would like a clean version without all the black specks like the AOTC, or without the dirty boots of the Evolutions one.


As far as Oddball being an individual or generic Pilot, if he is made as an individual, he will be released in animated style first anyways.

You could pretend an AOTC Clone Pilot was Oddball, because he's so close but we haven't seen what he looks like from the helmet down yet though, or his head, maybe with his own hairstyle. He could have his own individual thing going on.

I already said that there all different, none can ever be used as generic so lets hope they start releasing repaints soon.
