Me too. For whatever reason it has always seemed more "classic SW" and less contrived to me. It looks like something McQuarrie or Johnston might have designed from scratch instead of a direct reference to Boba Fett (Phase I helmet) or an attempt to simply merge Fett with a Stormtrooper (Phase II helmets.)

Well put, I do see a McQuarrie style there that I never noticed before. Definitely a better design and more unique than "the merge".

That all just makes me want this more now. I have no other PT clones and the only commander I have is Cody... but this really appeals to me. At least he'd go well with Cody.

From Star Wars Wiki:

The 212th Attack Battalion was a unit of clone troopers under the leadership of Clone marshal commander Cody and General Obi-Wan Kenobi. Troops of the 212th Attack Battalion were distinguished by the orange markings on their armor. The 212th Battalion sometimes worked in conjunction with a second battalion. It was attached to the Third Systems Army and was part of the 7th Sky Corps. Divisions of the 212th Attack Battalion include the Ghost Company, 2nd Airborne Company and Parjai Squad.

The 2nd Airborne Company made huge drops from high altitudes, with specialized armor and a specialized helmet to do so.

Parjai Squad was one of the first squads to land in the Battle of Utapau and later aided in the subjugation of Utapau following the transmission of Order 66. The clone troopers of Parjai Squad wore specialized armor and helmets that allowed for high altitude drops.

The squad's name, parjai, meant "victory" in Mando'a.

____. Definite buy. They'll be my first Phase II clones. I'm thinking I could pass it off with the Phase Is with the specialized helmet but I'm stepping into a world here I was trying to avoid. Hopefully the order is sooner than later and this isn't Comic Con teasing which traditionally starts at the end of April with SSC.

Agreed. Don't remember seeing them but will keep an eye out next time I watch Revenge. Am staying away from PT, especially clones, but these are a nice design (especially mixed in with the Phase II clones as in the photo), so I can definitely see why people would be excited to pick these up. Kind of cool coming after the Tusken, too, in the sense that I don't think anyone predicted Sideshow making either one.

This makes me wonder what Sideshow has prepped for SDCC, if they're just dropping stuff like this and the Tusken prior. Hope we're blown away this summer by what they've got planned. :pray:

Essentially there armor is the same design as the phase I/II clones but it has different paint schemes than the 212th clone. Also there phase I/II helmets have unique paint jobs to there characters. You also get a whole bunch of accessories with them that you don't get with the 212th which is kinda upsetting.

SS are really banging out the clones. By my reckoning, of the film clones we now have

Phase 1 Commander
Phase 1 Captain
Phase 1 lieutenant
Phase 1 Sergeant
Phase 1 Trooper

Phase 2 Coruscant
Shocktrooper
501st
Cody
212th Trooper
212th Airbourne
Bacara
Bly
Gree

So that leaves
Phase 1 Pilot
Phase 2 Pilot
Galactic Marine
BARC trooper
ATRT Driver
Neyo
91st Reconnaissance Corps Trooper
327th Star Corps Trooper

Not many left at all and I think the 327th Trooper is highly likely to be this year's SDCC exclusive.

I think the airborne trooper has one of the coolest helmets in the SW universe.

It definitely fits in and yet is wholy unique. It looks threatening and 'thuggish' in a good way. I would say it ranks up there with the best helmets: Vader, Fett and OT stormtroopers.

Clones too often look like obvious variants of the Fett/stormtrooper mix. This one keeps the basics and yet reinvents them is a new, cool way.

Yep, love the beehives, plus these guys get an honorable mention for the exact same reasons you just mentioned.

Cool and McQuarrie-ish (even kind of "thuggish" like you said) without being blatantly exploitative of the original designs.

(Apparently they are part of the 91st Recon Corp as I just learned from Wookieepedia)

The only thing I'm not a fan of is the "skirt". I don't see how it is useful or functional and in fact it seems like it would get in the way.

Khev
04-13-2012, 11:09 AM
I'm sure wookieepedia has an explanation about those somewhere. :lol

The Snowtroopers had them. Maybe the Airborne guys are accustomed to cold at high altitudes or have use of the extra layer when repelling down into thick terrain. Who knows. The designers probably just added the skirts to balance out what would have been a top heavy look with those big beehives.

Is that supposed to be ammunition of some kind stuck to their shoulders?

Looks like a little bandolier on the shoulder -- one of the things I think is pretty rad. Also like the one orange shoulder -- reminescent of the orange pauldron sandtroopers.

I don't see the skirt adding warmth to an armored character that has an environment bodysuit underneath and can virtually walk in space. As to the snowtroopers, I think it was more a stylized version of cold-weather Nazis than anything functional. How the "skirt" made it over to the clones... :dunno

maybe it indicates a 'top' or 'bottom' in the ranks. :lol

SS are really banging out the clones. By my reckoning, of the film clones we now have

Phase 1 Commander
Phase 1 Captain
Phase 1 lieutenant
Phase 1 Sergeant
Phase 1 Trooper

Phase 2 Coruscant
Shocktrooper
501st
Cody
212th Trooper
212th Airbourne
Bacara
Bly
Gree

So that leaves
Phase 1 Pilot
Phase 2 Pilot
Galactic Marine
BARC trooper
ATRT Driver
Neyo
91st Reconnaissance Corps Trooper
327th Star Corps Trooper

Not many left at all and I think the 327th Trooper is highly likely to be this year's SDCC exclusive.

I want not only those that SS hasn't release yet but those from Clone Wars series. From first season to the last one, there are a lot of cool clones I really like to own. Too many to name but, if possible, every single ones with different colour markings.

Oh, if only Sideshow thought that way we'd have a plethora of commanders for the 501st to choose from since they'd be so easy to cabbage together with what they've already sold since most of them are just 501st armor with pauldrons and various webgear colors, but of course they weren't "on screen" official so maybe thats the problem. Then again, why no troopers for Bly? take off the visor, minor paint app differences bam, you've got Star Corps.

That design does not fit in with the style and clear evolution of all other PT clones and just seems forced for more toy sales. Even in the OT, the Biker Scout design always seemed like a newer, more advanced Trooper variation, more agile, less bulky; like that would be the direction the Stormtrooper design evolution if the Empire lasted another 10 years.

In the end its what makes you happy on the shelf. I got an extra set of Waxer&Boil and when I get my hands on a second Airborne kama after the figure is launched, one of them will become a bashed 212th Lt. which is one of my favorite 3.75" figures in my 212th army, but alot of people would sneer at it as being a "EU" monstrosity since there were no Lts shown like that on screen. And similar to the subject at hand, in my mind the 41st Clone Commander in 3.75s with the cool black kama is Gree with my grey 41st ph2 troops and I display Camo Gree with my Arfs.

I like the bikers like everyone else, just seems so lazy to stick them in without backtracking their design in any way to an "origin" biker. If this was a "bike" design, then they should have been on the rides that Neyo's group is on. They can't even get the use right.

Boots have buckles on one not the other, there's a slight angling off at the bottom of the 'snout', the gloves look different... I'm sure there's little variances that come with making a CGI character vs. actual costume but overall it just looks too similar, not enough evolution.

At this point I'm not even sure if you're being serious :dunno

But... the biker scout armor is just another form of advanced armor chain, it does look different, maybe they didn't need as many changes to it or maybe since it was specialized armor more attention was paid to main troop armor. Its also far from the "perfect" armor for various uses, which is why Stormies had more plating and snow troopers had gear for the cold, etc.. etc...

I dunno... if Sideshow is releasing a Gaunch and Fox (two I've never heard of) Fives and Echo can't be far behind.

Clone variants are pretty easy for Sideshow to produce at this point... so I'd expect to see many, many more :lecture

They are and as a fan of clones I'm glad. I just love all the different designs and colors.

Maybe I heard his name before... but there's like 20 different clones every episode :lol

And as long as it keeps the line moving along I'm all for them. Make Sideshow money so they continue to take risks with figures like IG-88 and Hammerhead.

Not a fan at all of that bucket. However, I think I'll get him because of his cool gear and pouch and then pop an extra phase II on him. This was a no-buy until I saw that pouch. Yeah, I'm easy.

"The Exclusive Utapau Airborne Trooper Sixth Scale Figure, which will include a 2nd Airborne Company Base with ‘Parjai Squad’ Emblem" will be priced at $134.99 while the regular edition, without the extra base will be priced at $134.99

Whoops, youre right, but it does also say the regulare will be priced at $134.99 without the extra base.

The "extra" denotes in addition to, so that should mean the ex comes with the standard base plus the "extra" base :dunno

Looks to be no NRD for ordering two this time :)

I love this clone (I actually have the GG bust still boxed up never opened...not sure why....), not the price per se but I like it enough to pay it which I what I'm sure SSC is banking on. I'm just hoping for a short window from order to ship. I'd love for this guy to be in-stock but I doubt that'll happen.

06-19-2012, 02:21 PM
Now HERE's a clone that's actually worth the increased price of $134.99. The extra straps, pouch, bullets, and brand-new helmet more than make up for the lack of an unmasked portrait.

Man, I'm on a specifics roll today... at least from the pre-order (and it may have changed since you saw it) an :"extra" isn't mentioned:


The Exclusive Utapau Airborne Trooper Sixth Scale Figure, which will include a 2nd Airborne Company Base with ‘Parjai Squad’ Emblem will be priced at $134.99 while the regular edition, without the 2nd Airborne Company themed base will be priced at $134.99.

Does not look like it... again, mostly reuse with a unique bucket, the shoulder and bicep do-hickes and the pouches. Pretty much on par with the Bacara figure as there is no Morrison sculpt.

Wor-Gar
06-19-2012, 02:58 PM
Has the same chest rig and kama as Bacara too. Looks better on this guy though. Plus the extra bandoleer with satchel is awesome! He needs some cool 'flying' grenades.
