Green, left corner (http://www.paparock.com/starwars/clone/28.jpg)

Yellow, bottom right corner (http://www.ffurg.com/teaser/cw-061.jpg)

Yellow looks to be a reflection, but on the one in front, it looks too "thick".

That green one is just the yellow one in funny light. The red one is the commander and the yellow one is the captain. :) Nice thought though it would get awfully confusing to have yellow and green when there's so many of them. So I'm sure there's just the two colours and the plain white one. Course, it'll be easy enough to customise any colour you want once the figgies come out :D

I can't wait for those die-hard diorama fans to recreate this scene!

I saw the yellow too. I am pretty sure we will be getting that one too.

Well I plan on getting a card table and then putting up a giant back ground with a couple gunships and hopefully a bunch of Clone Troopers, should be cool.

Just for the record, there were some posts awhile back somewhere that had a picture of squads of Clone Troopers coming out of those ships and stuff and someone pointed out that each squad had 90 Clone Troopers + 1 Yellow trooper in front of them leading and the yellow on the trooper was very appearant. My guess is that the Yellow troopers lead the ones in the bigger ships while the red ones lead the ones in the gunships.

The figure of the clonetrooper displayed at the Toy Fair recently with red markings/insignia emblazened on its armour, was referred to as the Clone Captain. So if the rank of Captain is denoted by red on the armour, then presumably the yellow belongs to the rank of commander (OOM-9 springs to mind here). Just an idea. We saw 3 colours denoting rank on battle droids in TPM: yellow, red and blue, perhaps a similar set-up is what's being done by the Republic in AOTC.:)

Okay so it might be the other way round, but it still means just two colours and the regular white. I can't see a commander leading troops around in formation though. That'd be the captains job. So the captain would be the yellow one and the commander doing more tactical stuff or on the bridge of the ships would be the one with red markings. Messy explanation but it seems logical to me. (Where's BigBarada who used to be a sergeant when you need him to explain the ranking system. )

I won't be buying any clones until they improve the sculpt. The movie version is more squat about the helmet than these toys. More robust looking and more stocky. The toys look shiny and the movie version has a matt finish. I guess hasbro just worked off the drawn designs or maquette not the finished costume.

Still maybe by the time we get a yellow version of the clone we'll get a better sculpt. The preview version is lacking somewhat and the red highlighted one is posed strangely again. A neutral clone would be nice. An army building pack would be nice. Four clones - one red, one yellow and two plain. :) with commtech stormie style articulation or more. Yeah, dream on Jargo...... :rolleyes:

I agree, we'll only see two coloured rankings: red and yellow on their armour. But bear this in mind, the battle droid with the yelllow markings/dot, OOM-9, fought along side his comrades (re: opening assault in TPM), AND led, in a strategic capacity, the attack on Naboo - dual role. My guess is the clonetroopers with red markings lead the ground assault while those with yellow man/fly the assault craft/gunships/AT- AE. :)

In naval military rankings, Commander is lower than Captain. I'd follow the red guy into battle. More charismatic! Yellow is cowardice.

If you want me to recreate that diorama, Steve, I'll start accepting donations for the funding I'll need to buy THOUSANDS of Clonetrooper figures. Sheesh.

Yeah I saw the different Clones as well. Yep, Diorama builders are gonna have a good time with this one. Hopefully Hasbro will make enough Clone figures.

I think customisers will have NO trouble putting the markings on these. I'm sure Hasblah will eventually put out the different variations (since we've already seen the red).

I actually see a black one, not green... hmm, let me try my graphic software to see actually what it really is...

Hmmm, hey will there be blue ones for the pilots... ???

I think the red troopers will be piloting the gunships, at least according to the Hasbro gunship pictures.

There doesn't seem to be any indication of a blue trooper yet...:( too bad, blues my favorite color.

To the rescue...

O.K. the green is actually a yellow one in bad light, Jargo is right...

However there's a Blue/gray one hidden between the red one and the left yellow one... 2 rows back!!! And it ain't no reflection...

I see it! That is definatly not a reflection. So it's Blue, Yellow, Red, nothing.

I watched the trailer again at the clone boarding sceen. As the camera pans up and right, you can clearly make out a "dark" stripe on some of the trropers helmets that can't be a reflection. I can't tell what the color is, blue, black, but there is definely a third color.

www.rebelscum.com pretty much confirms the existence of the coloured clonetroopers, by revealing that Kaybee will be releasing 12" exclusives of the red, yellow and green clonetrooper later in the year.
