    Looks like the V-Wing (?) doesn't have hands but has giant blasters for hands. Still cool though. the other Clone fighter pilot looks awesome. Definately will be picking up the clones..

    I'm still wondering how that V-19 is going to fit in the packaging, it'll have to be bulky to make a properly sized figure to begin with and those wings are long as it is.

    Too bad the V-Wing doesn't have actual hands, though other than that it doesn't look too bad. Would have made perfect fodder for a Jhiaxus, as that mold would have looked nice in orange. The other new molds don't look that bad, and could make for some nice kitbash fodder.

    I think the V-Wing will be packaged like the imperial shuttle- wings folded up and/ or detached. It's probably the easiest way, at any rate.

    These look quite good overall, but I'm still not sure on the V-Wing/Shocktrooper's arms.

    Oh, and Plo Koon should've had new hand molds.

    The last two look decent. Plo is a mess.

    V-wing looks better than in the original images. And he has hands, too - their molded such that they are grasping the circular base of the laser cannons. I really like the "Imperial guard" motif - he looks just like the Clone Troopers that are attached to Sidious. It's also appropriate because the V-wing is the escort ship from that scene. I think the shoulders are mistransformed, though. It might be worth getting for the vehicle mode alone.

    AT-TE/Captain Rex (is that who he is?) continues to look great, best of the wave and probably one of the best SWTFs overall.

    Torrent is OK. Bot mode top-heaviness might be a bad thing.

    Plo's head is nasty, but at least that means it's accurate. The vehicle mode looks great, though - the best deco yet seen on this mold.

    They all look ok to me except for Plo Koon. Head and the deco aren't really going well together :(  I need AT-TE already!

    Well, at least they're getting closer to doing that Jedi starfighter in the one color scheme I would buy, as Mace Windu.

    ^ Doesn't seem terribly likely, unfortunately. Mace has never been shown flying a Delta-7, AFAIK.

    I'll probably be buying that last one for the heck of it, looks neat and is ripe for a blackwash and detail job in my eyes. What is the alt. mode, though? I'm not up to date with some of the newer Star Wars fighter types.

    The Shocktrooper does have hands, they're just sculpted in. I like Plo Koon, but he does need new hands and some better colours for the head and hands. Rex looks pretty cool, but the more I see these clones the more I think that they should have regular clone weapons like how the Jedi have Lightsabers. Not Liking the V-19.

    They're all missing one crucial aspect that would actually make me buy them: PILOTS!

    Has every SWTF been based on a character who actually pilots it? I don't know, I'm just asking, plus I keep thinking of the Vader recolors of prequel trilogy vehicles.

    These look great! Definitely going to get the three 3 molds. Big pass on the repaint.
