Q: I love the Clones! Any chance for a 1:6 scale Rex in Phase II armor?

A: Absolutely. His new look is phenomenal!


Maybe not currently in development but in the works. :yess:

Hope they sculpt a new bib so the middle strip isn't just painted on when they release the new one.

Too bad im starting to lose interest in clones..
quite an interesting fig though

Are there many differences in the armour, or will it be just the same figure with a new helmet, and cost $50 more than the phase one Rex?
Considering Bly comes with the option of both it'll be a bit painful to fork out for a whole new figure:(
That said I'll probably get him.

^ well Rex was only Phase 1 when they released him, Phase II hadn't been revealed yet, but i take your point

I'm all over this when its released!!! Ever since the krell storyline I have been wanting him with the phase 2 bucket....awesome news!!!

I didn't pick up the 1st one as I am a fan of Phase II helmets so this is GREAT news!! Hopefully this will be out before the end of the year...

Rex 2.0 will be a pass for me... I'm sure the figure will be cool, but I'm keeping away from CW figures.

I hope they make Wolffe and his troops from S4! They have some of the best markings on the armour and Wolffe's helmet was also different.

This is perhaps the coolest of many, many cool clones - sooooooo excited for this figure!!!

The original version of Rex is still one of the best figures in my collection! IMHO it is a must have! I do love the new modified version of his phase 2 helmet. I'd be in for getting the updated ver. but SSC needs to step up and make sure it's on par w/ the first one! You have to admit the jet pack was a great addition to the original ( as well as head sculpt, extra hands) and raised the bar on the clone figure line. If it does happen, I just hope it doesn't trend toward the upcoming Commander Bacara release ( less for more $$$$).

Agreed on all the above, I really,really, hope we get an extra backpack as seen in the Krell arc, especially some thermal detonators. I have mentioned this already, but a extra hand holding a thermal detonator would be awesome with the clones.

Yeah, i think the magnet feature really boosted the value of Rex in Phase I armor
Bacara plainly failed in the accessory dept.

I think that would be great!!!! That is the kind of stuff that would justify a second purchase. Cody had the order 66 holo hand, a thermal detonator hand shouldn't be very difficult. I'd also like them to add some different weapons in the mix.

Yes agree with both of you. SS raised the bar w/ Rex, Cody, Bly and Gree to a lesser extent. But Bacara seems like a bit of a let down. Doesn't even come close to above mentioned. It's just greed. You know they will be able to reuse much of that helmet sculpt for the snowtrooper and galactic marine figures! Sorry to jump off topic for a bit.

Really looking forward to this one, a very striking armour variation especially when compared to other phase 2 troopers. :yess: I hope they tone down the hair colour a bit if we get another un-helmeted head.

Too bad there's no upgrade kit.. Might have to go on ebay buy the few pieces to upgrade my Captain Rex.. Phase 2 helmet, ARC pauldron and prob a few hands..

Bobamike, from here on the forums has made an unpainted Rex Phase 2 helmet and also has done the Arc pauldon with pistols and holsters. I've bought from him before, he's a reliable seller. You can see his site here:

and his custom Rex Phase 2 helmet painted up:

This will be the ultimate companion piece for my ROTS Ani.

I passed on phase 1 Rex, but really hope they hop on getting this oen out. Also wouldn't mind seeing a Wolffe with the advanced armored helm like he has this season. Gotta keep the CW's stuff rolling. :clap

Ah man, my heart jumped for a bit with the thread bump, was hoping for news.

I wonder if SS will do CW style bodies--slimmer profile bodies.

Chances are, they don't want to mention anything just yet because they are selling the Rex Premium Format. From a business point of view, they don't want to lose money on that item should they announce a new phase 2 Rex to soon.
Once they make the most out of the PF Rex. I'm sure they'll announce the phase 2 Rex. ;)

I agree. and not only is the Rex PF up for PO, but I believe next week the Phase 1 Rex Legendary Scale Bust will be up for PO too. I'm pretty sure we won't see the PhaseII Rex for awhile

I believe they said it was six seasons max, if I'm correct it was at the beginning of 4 they said they were past halfway.

Yup! Bumped for disappointed expectations. I finally picked up a ph 1 Rex, because I got tired of waiting ( he looks great with his head protrait), but this is definitely what I want on my shelf...
