(Now since the JC has Clonetrooper icons and SW.com has released pictures of the 12" Clonetrooper figure, we can now discuss them! Now, on to the topic...) First of all, I'm sure you all have seen the new Clonetrooper pictures up on the official site or at least here at the JC used as icons. Have you noticed anything about their masks? I think what George has done with the Clonies is perfectly brilliant! We all thought that Mandalorians were to be the clones of the Clone Wars. Also, most of us were pretty sure that Stormtrooper were clones as well. Well, we were wrong about the Mandalorian thing, but right about the Stormtrooper part. BUT, instead of just making clones wear Stormtrooper armor, George ups the ante another notch! He *blends* Mandalorians and Stormtroopers! To illustrate this, look at this mathematical equation: [image=http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/fett.gif] + [image=http://www.theforce.net/snowboards/icons/TFN_stormtrooper.gif] = [link=http://www1.theforce.net/icons/publicicons/clonetrooper.gif]Pic of Clonetrooper[/link] See? Clonies have the Mandalorian "T" viewing slit on top which continues down to the classic Stormie "frown"! I dunno if any of you noticed this yet (thought most of you probably did ), but I had to share it with you!
