Discussion on Mandalorian Clones? within the Expanded Universe Bounty Hunters forum, part of the Star Wars Universe category; what do you think
thats looks awesome. That would be pretty cool to make. I would make an atemmpt but i got a bunch of projects already, But it is just regular clone armor, true??
Those are two clones from a 14 figure two box set coming out by Hasbro. It's will also come with some new Mandalorians who trained them at kamino. So far one Mando and these two clones are all that have been shown. They are supposed to show the rest of the figures at SDCC.
It's another set of repaints....(yawn), but yes, it's regular EP.III clone armor. I guess it's not really a stretch though considering the genetic donor. After Geonosis most of the clones were really becoming aware of their heritage so it makes sense that this scheme would show up at some point. Seems a little bland though.....
Just my 2 cents.
They could have at least put thier belts on up-side right. Even though I like the design and believe it or not I drew something similiar for a custom arc trooper design a year ago, I think it is just another marketing attempt to sell more figures. Sad, Sad, Sad, Unfortunatly I will end up buying them to add to my clone collection.
Why would the Republic use Mandalorians as the palette anyway? They are great warriors, but they are a completely different regime that is extremely hostile to the Republic. I don't get it, the figures are just repaints, I'm disappointed in them. However, if you put that Mythosaur skull on just about anything, it will excite Mando fans.
I actually saw a couple of these costumes put together last year here are some pics
They were based off of the clones who broke away from the republic army as was stated above. They didn't have the bantha skulls though, but same character idea.
wow those costumes look really cool. Now if hasbro made figures that looked like that I might be a bit more excited.
As to figures... In actual fact Hasbro created them and the EU adopted them and integrated the idea into the stories.
To be honest with you guys, the two clones in the above photos are brothers in my garrison and good friends of mine, one is a long time member here. It was there take on the arcs lonnnnnnnnnng before speculation this, and EU that. Hopefully he will chime in if he has time LOL.
Yeah, these are realy "Mando clone troopers" they're just "Hasbro repaints."
Wait, in those pictures, do those clones have boot spikes?
Thats probably true in alot of cases. I feel that the whole clone/mando idea sort of strips the identity from mando culture. Sure the clones want to regain their lost heritage, but even though they were the product of Mandalorian genes...they are still clones at the end of the day.
IMHO the clones are not part of mandalorian history. They are part of republic/imperial history as machinations of the Sith.
dont clones only live for a certain amount of time before dying?
either way...pretty cool armor
They seriously do look like they just steped off the pages of a comic book,etc.
Oh man, It just hit me that they also have gauntlets! Nice! Those are some rocking clones.
The repaints with the "eyes" are cool, but I could do without the Jaing skull on the chest. I probably wouldn't bother with them if they weren't a part of the figure pack.
Well no matter what is about this Armour, from the pics they look great.... makes me want a set.
Forgive the continued beating of the bush, but Mandalorian is a culture, not a species or race. human, twi'lek, clone, hutt, the blob, it doesn't matter, a Mando is a Mando. Now of course that deosn't mean all clones are mando, just those that embraced the culture, just like everyone else.
I know, it looks awesome!Well no matter what is about this Armour, from the pics they look great.... makes me want a set.
