    ROTS Clone Trooper #6 (and variations) reviewed

    After looking back, I was surprised that this figure never got it's own thread...

    At this point the "quick-draw attack" Clone Trooper is old news, but after getting my hands on a few of the newer red "Shocktrooper" variants, I was reminded of what a fun toy this is. The new clone has stationed itself on my desk becoming the current "thing to fiddle around with when I should probably be doing something else."

    The main thing that I'm reminded of with this figure, is that given all of the complaining that I and many others do (and have done) about figures with action gimmicks, it's nice to see that Hasbro can pull it off once in a while. As great as the SA Clone #41 is, it's not all that much better than this one... it's just nice to have the variety I think.

    And as far as variety goes, I really like this new version.

    Re: ROTS Clone Trooper #6 (and variations) reviewed

    I like how the #6 clone can move its hips more than a few degrees unlike all the other Super Articulated clones, one of my #6s is fully kneeling. I only wish the designers had incorporated standard waist articulation on the #6, Anakin #28 has the exact same gimmick but has waist articulation, Vader #11 has a slightly more complicated version of this gimmick yet has really smooth waist articulation.

    As for all the paint variants of #6, we've got the Shocktrooper and Commander Gree for the basics, and then there are several Battle Packs with variant paintjobs of this figure as well. I am not a fan of ANY of the rainbow of clonetroopers, but the only one that bothers me in toy form is Gree with those painted suspenders, it's crappy looking work and should have been a separate piece since its on its own separate card.

    Yeah, I refuse to begrudge #6 his due just because he has an action feature. Though it does have rather wide hips, they do allow the range of motion Jedi Tricks mentions. The head and neck area of #6 is head and shoulders (couldn't resist, and believe me I tried) above #41. And of course #6 comes with two guns, which is less a good thing about #6 than a bad thing about #41, I suppose.

    The variations (I've got six each of Shock Troopers and 501st) just make this figure even better. I still plan to get more white #6 figures.

    Is it just me or do the bodies of the 501st and Shocktroopers look kind of different? Maybe the paint schemes create the illusion that the molds are slightly different, but I get that sense. Or maybe it's the way the 501st clones were posed in the package, maybe it re-molded their pose slightly. Or maybe it's just a mirage

    Luuuuuuke, I haven't seen one in person yet, but isn't the 501st Trooper a repaint of the #41 clone?

    Yeah, that's the one I looked at and thought, "OK, that's really pushing it." I'll save my judgement for when I see it in person, but...

    Not the one in the Jedi Temple Assault pack. He's a #6 clone. Probably everyone here wishes it were a #41 clone But the #6 is a cool clone.

    Ah yeah, the ones in that set -- don't have it yet either. Have to wait and see in person, but I'd bet it's just the paint that makes it look different.

    Thye 501st from the Jedi Temple Assault pack is the #6 Clone, complete with squeezy leg feature. Two of them have the shorter blastes and one has the rifle.

    Speaking of the Jedi Temple Assault Battle Pack, why oh why did they pack in a Clone Pilot? Why not just give us the cheesy Anakin with four 501st Clones? The Pilot makes no sense!
    May the force be with you.

    Is this finally the case? Weren't we all complaining because the carded 501st was apparently going to be using the AT-TE gunner mold? That's what he looks like from the pictures. Then again, some of the early pics of this figure did make him look like a #41 repaint.

    sith killer99, i think everyone wondered that about the JTA set. It seemed goofy to include the pilot.
