Hopefully that's the 1:6 Vader. I've been holding off buying the 1st release in the secondary. Deluxe 1:6 Trooper will definitely be great.

Definitely the ESB/ROTJ Vader. Wondering if the floor piece is stepping on is part of a larger Death Star throne room environment. The perfect diorama piece to give Palpy and throne even more appeal.

Great news, I've been looking for a really good generation 1, Clone.
Hope we get the classic white one first.

Kind of looks like it's got bits of orange on the arms... I figured the deluxe would be a an all white release? But maybe this is just the first of many deluxe releases :huh

I think there is three troopers in the photo, a 501st on the left, a white in the middle and possibly a 212th on the right.

Yep thats what it looks like to me. Looks like they are Phase 1 helmets too.

I wonder what the requirements for a deluxe are. Comparing the first clones with Commander Wolffe the differences are huge. Maybe it's the troopers and the cool stand they have in all their pictures.

A new Vader with a good helmet instead of their first abortive attempt would truly be awesome.

Not sure we need multiple DX clones releases (from the same phase anyway) but i'd welcome one if similar to the DX Sandtrooper. If it were to come with a couple or more headsculpts (Both Bodie Taylor and Temuera Morrison), it'd be an instant buy for me.

T.E.D

Well masterside has said that this is the 1/6th scale Darth Vader in the statue forum.

MaxGoof

I don't like the idea of interchangeable armor pieces at all. I'd rather buy 1 501st Trooper and 1 plain Trooper for $120 each than pay $150 each for two deluxe troopers with extra armor pieces.

You're only going to display the clones wearing one set of armor at a time, so what's the point of charging more for extra armor? They might as well release each clone individually.

I imagine if this is a deluxe white it will include both helmets (maybe an unhelmeted portrait) and an assortment of extra hands, crouched feet and maybe some extra weapons.

The original Phase I was pretty light; I think just 4 hands and the two blasters.

I've really been waiting for this. I have all the clones released so far (except boil/waxer) but still like the idea of making this guy custom. The Deluxe Sandtrooper is great and they will probably do a Stormtrooper also. There is no plain white Phase II released yet.

So there are clone miniguns, short carbines and long rifles which has a grappling hook attachment as well as backpacks. There also seems to be clean and worn versions

It's a bunch of Phase 1s.... and I guarantee you don't get to buy a sticker sheet. It'll be about 3 (white, 501st, 212th) separate figures for you to buy as many as you want. That's why they have an offering for a lucky winner to get a "set" of them. I'm just down for the plain white one as I find the design to be fantastic.

Hard part is deciding to go with the clean white or the battle damaged.

Since they already made droid poppers it would make sense. I wasn't around when they released the Endor troopers, were they sold as a set or individually? That might be the key to how these are sold.

with any luck, these will have a MASSIVE edition size, or possibly not even be "limited edition".

this has a few benefits.

1) Easy to get for the forseeable future

2) Lower price per unit ( hoping for the 90-120$ ranger per figure)

3) Armybuilding actualy becomes a posability

I hope you are right. It would make all kinds of sense I think. If the stormtroopers were readily available at non inflated prices I would build an army on the spot, but they're not so I don't own a single one.

This is so what I want to happen. At the current prices you either cast new armor and build clones or buy a ton to build a army which is expensive or time consuming either way.

I have been looking forward to making a phase 1 clone dio against droids but phase 1 are to expensive to army build for what they are. If this turns out the way I want it to we will get an actual option to army build with and if it doesn't we will at least get the Gatling and backpacks which in itself is pretty cool.

Yeah, the armor body is quite solid and the new body suits are a lot better than the original ones.

Overall you really can't go wrong with a Clone; the releases have generally been very solid once they made those two changes.

You've got a good point, it would be nice to see some of the other commanders get clones to display with. I've already got 6 212th including Cody and just am not interested in adding anymore of them. Theres 4 different troopers in that preview so I am hoping that you get a choice of what type of troopers you want and don't have to eat a 212th with every box set.

I think that photo session was simply to show some of the weapons. Don't think SSC was meticulous enough to think that collectors would scrutinize the figures to make sure those were the new ones by checking out the under suit lol
With that said, I don't think SSC has any reasons to go back to their old rubber suits. They have released all the latest clones with this new mesh suit and so will continue until they develop a new fabric suit. The Snowtrooper was a tremendous improvement in terms of the body they used. In the old clones, the joints sucked. They could not be made to stand without falling if not using a stand. The Stormtrooper joints, for what I saw in the store a while ago, are much more sturdy and smooth.

Darkarn009
06-03-2013, 01:26 AM
I'm sure they have thousands of the fabric ones in reserve for this and i highly doubt they'd go through the drama that came with the rubber ones again.
It would simply be stupidity for them to go back to that when the fabric is clearly the better and more popular option.

Word!

If these are a 400 plus bundle of that many clones, theres going to have to be group buys or Ebaying for scraps. I don't need anymore orange on my shelves, I would not mind a couple 501st and the updated gear, but seriously, why bundle anymore 212th? The last 5 weren't enough? :lol

Either Way the paint job for the 501 (old) on the promo looked dirty. On the actual figure is much cleaner. I think this 501 will suffer from the same. Judging by the price these ones will cost, people who own the 501 might as well just keep it and get the weapons off ebay.

The only one out of these 4 that I am interested in is the 501st.

I wouldn't mind but I only bought one of the original SS 501st a few months ago from a fellow freak and I was hoping to find another but the prices were too high.

Hopefully these come in around $100 a piece but I have a feeling it will be $135 knowing SS pricing lately.

The price for the 212 and 501 got pretty high on the secondary market before the news of these came out, take it from someone whose been looking awhile but wouldn't pay 150-250. :gah: I think 130 to 150 isn't bad for a chance to get clone(s) you missed out on and get some other stuff you can use with your existing clones to bring some variety to the display. :dunno

Good point... although maybe not better on the 501... but more accessories since that had the new bodysuit, but before the addition of 20 hands no one ever used :lol

It's a figure they can reuse over and over without new money into development, unlike a lot of other figures. So I'm not sure why people complain thinking their not making some OT figure because their making clones. The profit they make in the clone line finances the new OT stuff and you could make the point that the OT figs would come out even slower without revenue from the clones. BTW, I buy PT, OT and EU Star Wars. :yess:

Invictus Sol
06-07-2013, 11:55 AM
I used to buy the 'sales from clones finance other stuff that you'll actually like' argument but don't really think that's the case. I think it has more to do with the fact that they're good at releasing these armoured figures, adding more detail here and there but with low overhead. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for those that want them (and 501 does look pretty good... just I won't go PT) but I don't think these releases affect the pace of OT releases or finance them in any way.

spiderrogue
06-07-2013, 12:11 PM
why are they releasing another 501st clone? the only difference is the ph 1 bucket and some extra gear...same with the 212th and the shiney...so pretty much all of them have been released...lol...i have them all now(the old ones or customs)..but would still get some parts down the road from TA im sure....

BTW, I buy PT, OT and EU Star Wars. :yess:

Nah I get it... and if anything it helps me not overspend since I can skip these kind of releaeses. But I do think it can possibly hurt the overall series if they become stale and release too many of the same thing over and over again.

Not to mention I have a feeling these will come with a pretty hefty price tag... With Bacara coming in at $135 as pretty bare-bones with only on helmet and no Morrison portrait I'd think these could easily top $150.

I think it has more to do with the fact that they're good at releasing these armoured figures, adding more detail here and there but with low overhead.

So they make a higher return on Investment (ROI), I think we agree here. :dunno


but I don't think these releases affect the pace of OT releases .

Your right and that's what I said, but a lot of other people think so. They only have so much money to develop new products each year and have to divide it among all product lines.


or finance them in any way.

Everything SS sells and makes a profit on helps finance the company and all new products (star wars and others). Although no one knows their financials since their privately owned, the proliferation of clones means their a reliable money maker and add more to the ROI than anything else. So I guess we'll agree to disagree on your last point. :1-1:

Don't disagree with you here. And I could see these sticking around for awhile and maybe that's the plan with only a new specific character clone once or twice a year like Woiffe? I certainly wouldn't mind being able to buy them over time, say a year or two.

I hope not. I think these will be priced at $135 like the Utapau Airborne Trooper, there isn't any large extra cost I can see and it would be spread over 4 figures anyways.

Maybe... but 2 buckets, and the extra large weapon and backpack could be where the cost comes in.

Not to mention there is a steady creep up in price between releases. I mean the Cobra Commander is $175 and aside from the 2nd head appears to be a pretty basic figure.

so wait til TA parts out the clones and get only what you need..weapons, etc...ph 1 buckets, etc...because 150 bucks each isnt worth buying them for just excl. weapons or what have you...

You forget one very important fact, it is not just a basic figure! It is a figure with Kato tailored suit. remember the Joker 2.0? wasn't that also Kato's work? And HT kept saying that they paid a lot for it? lol. Having Kato on the tailoring definitively improves SS figures with fabric outfits.

just wait until you see that Kato tailored the new 3.0 bodysuit for the deluxe clones, easy 189.99 per figure

Whatever happens I am atleast picking up 2-3 depending on price only the shiny and white veteran. Need more clones for my army and if anything can always mod them down the road. The backpacks are a welcome sight since I have been wanting one for some time now.

With these releases, I smell phase II Captain Rex is not far behind!!! I think that's what SS is planning. Cody got his troops already. It is time for Rex's now.

I hope they don't move clones to the Prometheus 1.2 or 1.3 bodies...I don't want to fight with ratchet knees...I have lots of clones crouching or down to a knee...otherwise I can't wait for the exact details of what is included...

Oh god no those ratchet knees are the worse. I am sure though they will stick with the armored bodies due to they work so well know why switch it I mean its SSC were talking about......oh **** were getting wratchet knees :gah:

I'm in for the new 501st, 212th and the veteran. Not interested in the shiny clone whatsoever. It feels like these things come in waves. I have a feeling we'll get another one (maybe a Shocktrooper with Phase I) as an SDCC exclusive on top of it?

Could the price really get as high as $135? Didn't the green siege clone trooper come out around a year ago and cost about $90? And that had the ton of hands, two pairs of feet etc. The airborne at $135 had the skirt, a whole new type of helmet and parts that other clones didn't. I guess it will be a bit more simply beacause it's a "deluxe" but a $45 extra?

If I had to guess, I'd say it'll be $125.00 - $135.00. Just thinking that's about the max that they'll be able to milk out of collectors and still make it seem like a decent deal, next to the other stuff @ $175.00+.

119.99 is what I think they will go for any higher and its just madness for collectors to army build like they want us to. Everything on the clones is just a re do of older clones except for the backpack and Gatling so any higher than 119.99 is asking to much. If they do go 135$+ a piece I am going to order threw other retailers than SSC just to save some money or wait for this whole thing to fall apart and pick up clones that are discounted at some point.

Or just pick them up on Ebay. Generic troopers always sell dirt cheap for quite awhile.

Yep thats also why I am selling off my 501st right now so that I have the option to make money on them and get 2x the clones.

I wonder which shade of orange the 212 figures will be - Cody's or the first 212 shade of Orange or waxer and Boils or the Airborne. It would be nice if they at least match somebody...5 shades of Orange is a little crazy...

:exactly::goodpost: I know right? For me I hope its cody orange or the or the 212th orange. Boil orange is to light in my opinion and the utapau is to dark on the shoulders/knees everywhere else is good though on him.

They should have offered multiples in a package for a lower price. This way there is an actual incentive for army builders to buy more without losing sales to buyers only interested in one.

I would even go for some kind of deal were if you ordered more than 3 figures of a certain clone that don't come with boxes just some kind of mailer issue they would be able to give a discount to those people and also keep them from going straight on the market for resale.

It shows the the 501st clone with his phase 2 helmet when you click the view button so it looks like they do.

Yes, they will each include a phase 1 AND phase 2 helmet.
