    Thumbs up Super-articulated Clone Trooper to be released!

    The lastest INSIDER stated that Hasbro is currently working on and planning to release a super-articulated Clone Trooper at the end of this year or towards the beginning of the next year!

    Yeah!!!

    I have seen a prototype of this fig, and it rocks!

    14 points of articulation!!!

    It will be released as a white trooper although it should easy enough for Hasbro to vary the colors.

    Hmmmm, three packs, value packs and then a single carded clontrooper... can't see that happening. The original single carded red stripe clonetrooper has twelve points of articulation. They're using this as the basis for the value pack clonetroopers. What's the point of putting out a single white clonetrooper with just two more points? All they could add is pin-joint elbows. Woo. There are so many other characters that are being neglected as it is what's the point of milking the clonetroopers to the detriment of new characters?

    The single carded Clone Trooper has already been announced (in SW Insider, WWC, SDCC, etc). It is also shown on the 2003/2004 catalog that first had pics of the new stuff.

    It is also in Clone Wars case assortments on EE.

    I can see why Hasbro is doing this. It's a smart move on their part because look at how many completionists there are. People may grumble about another cloney, but many will still gobble them up because it's one more thing they have to have. Look at some of the posts in the clone wars section. Forumites have talked about buying dozens of clonetroopers for army building and variant collecting purposes. Hasbro will sell tons of these.

    Now, I'm with you Jargo. I think they should give the clonetrooper fabrication a rest and get to making new characters.

    I think these are a great addition to the Commtech Stormtroopers packs. I'm sure we'll see these single carded and then bundled as four-packs available through various e-tailers.

    These are the reason I am not going all crazy about the Value Packs or the Clone Trooper army builders. I'm saving my dough for these!

    I want to see these new clonetroopers to compare them to the $3 Red Clone troopers in mass quantities at my nearby KBToys.

    I figured I could repaint the Red ones to all of the necessary colors for army building.
