They have finally--after all these years--given us a gunship with a troop compartment that has floor all the way through. The speeder is stored up and out of the way and there's no weird trench down the middle. Cthulhu be praised.

Beautifully shot and composed photo of every clone trooper variant LEGO has ever made.

Now take a photo of your company without any of those wussy hero units.

Realized that I actually screwed up the first picture—I didn't include the Horn Company clone trooper. They're in this one.



All I need is one more sergeant to have the full platoon.

And I thought you'd never notice.
With that, you've passed the test. Congratulations.

Goddammit I quit



This is what remains of Axiom Company. The rest are somewhere in the box I'm not too keen to go sifting through anytime soon lest I break the carcasses of my vehicle component even more. Bask in the glow of my terrible 7th grade custom clones.

And yes, I did have a Captain in charge of this trainwreck. Because of course I did.

Those custom clones are a lot better than mine. I eventually ended up buying new helmets off the Internet to fix the clones I basically destroyed.

At its heit, my LEGO SW company consisted of 3 clones and a stormstrooper without a helmet. With 1 blaster between them. The Pointy Sticks, named after their weapon of choice.

I just painted them excessively badly. I'd take a picture, but I don't think I have them anymore. I found the lieutenant's arms, but none of the helmets. I may have thrown them away after I bought new ones.

My Orange Taskforce (no formal name made) was at its best in the following, there were probably the most of my clones I could manage to locate and completely assemble. I have ~20 clones but can only find ~10 at a given time.
Present were about 9 clones total, a (heavily) modified Juggernaut, and a scouting vehicle made of whatever was leftover from the Juggernaut.

Set names for the Summer 2014 wave.

75054 AT-AT
75050 B-Wing
75055 Imperial Star Destroyer
75051 Jedi Reconnaissance Fighter
75052 Mos Eisley Cantina
75048 Phantom
75049 Snowspeeder
75053 The Ghost

The Ghost and presumably the Phantom are from the upcoming Star Wars: Rebels series. Hopefully the cantina will be a nice big set with lots of figures; they haven't done a version of that since 2004, and it was a pretty crappy version then. The dewback was really the only thing it had going for it. This list has been run through Google Translate, so 'Jedi Reconnaissance Fighter' is probably a Delta-7.

So according to a totally unsubstantiated forum post that I have decided to treat as absolute truth, the Jedi Reconnaissance Fighter is another Jek-14 set. I spent, like, ten minutes trying to decide which rage face properly summed up my reaction to this news, and eventually decided to post all of the contenders.

Brickipedia finally has a nice picture of one of the airborne troopers, along with the new blaster. The trooper looks great (I love that they're using more cloth now. The Star Corps troopers had it way back in 2006, and then it went away), but the blaster doesn't really get any better up close. You can see how it works now, though.

The trooper is one of the 212th Airborne guys who appear very briefly in RotS. The gun is just some crap LEGO has decided is an acceptable substitute for weapons that at least vaguely resemble those used in Star Wars. They don't seem to be in very many sets, though--only the battlepacks appear to be using them, in this wave at least.

I'm offended you thought I didn't know that Razz

That's a relief. Just look closely at it. It's like a gun trapped inside a gun. Maybe a mini-GL?

I wasn't sure which you meant. The gun is like that because it can fire the stud off the front--that's what I meant by seeing how it works. You press the grey part down and the blue bit pops off. I don't think it's meant to look like any kind of weapon at all.
