Sideshow's Star Wars 1/6th Clone Trooper Phase 1 Quasi Review

Spawned from my least favorite of all the Star Wars films ("just being around her again is... intoxicating"... Jesus H. Christ Crappin' Out His Own Crown 'O Thorns, will you shut your cake hole already, Skywalker?), the Phase 1 Clone Troopers exhibit one thing that George Lucas' space fantasy accomplishes in spades; Balls out swinging design work.
Seeing the clanking, horded columns of these white armored bad boys marching around in lockstep on Kamino, followed by their prevention of the Jedi forces having their collected asses handed to them on Geonosis was the cats ass, and made up for Episode II's hellishly awful "romantic" scenes between Natalie Portman and that department store mannequin George Lucas cast as Anakin Skywalker...

No matter how 'intoxicating' Episode II may be.....this Phase 1 clonie is one superb figure Dash! Cool....are you planning to collect every single trooper frm the franchise?

Rebel- I'm not sure my wallet can handle EVERY clone from the franchise, but I am pretty excited about Sideshow's upcoming Captain Rex figure.

The Rebel said...

Yeah Dash...have to agree with ya....Rex looks unique enough for most collectors to consider. Heck, even I'm considering to preorder him now! Heheh.....
