Grrrrr. This is more than I wanted to spend, but I may yet "have to" get 2 of these. I envision my SideShow Emperor kneeling over my Hasbro Crispy Anakin (from the Ultimate Darth Vader set from E3's 12" Collection - and probably the only decent use for this figure in my collection - as a burnt and charred, correctly disfigured persona) and 2 Shocktroopers hurrying to assist their Emperor on Mustafar. (The Hasbro E3 Anakin came with 2 heads - regular (sucked) and xtra crispy (useful). His clothing could be changed into Darth Vader's gear. This was a good concept as a TOY but the sculptwork was first and foremost what the figure was lacking (Hayden Christianson's likeness that is).
As for different kinds of E3 Clones? Which would I get?
Utopau - have 1 already. Want Cody. I think I can pass on an Airborne.
Kashyyyk - cool but I'll save money here. No thanks (to Scout and Gree both - probably. I can tell it's already tempting me. )
501st Legion - I don't know. I might possibly be able to skip these, come to think of it. My Anakin figure is occupied fighting Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The StarCorps - maybe 1 and Commander Bly to go with Aayla. I hadn't considered this before, but I'd been planning to get the 501st until I started typing this post. Just now I realized that I didn't need them for what I'm displaying. Then again, SSC could always make Bail Organa in his speeder pilot outfit....
The Galactic Marines / Commander Bacarra - as cool as these look, I think I can do without. I have a few of them Hasbro Snowtrooper Style from ESB.
