Review: 75000 Clone Troopers vs Droidekas
Posted 16 December 2012 - 11:31 AM
Bought the two 2013 Battlepacks from a Swedish retailer last week. I´m saving the Old Republic one for christmas but this one got opened today. It´s lack of "real" figures makes this one seem less interesting but is it worth the cash at all?
Minifigs: 1 clone Sergeant, 1 Clone trooper, 2 brickbuilt droidekas
1 (small) Command base
Price: € 14.99, 149SEK
Box size is the new smaller version. (Pirates of the Caribbean Captains Cabin had a testrun for this box)

Bags and instruktionbooklet. No stickers. Front of booklet is the same as box.

Yes, he´s still there.

Both clones. I like the new print and the non-clonewarsfaces.

Helmets close up. Really nice but why´s the Sergeants visor silver?

Compared to the 8014 Clone Wars Clone clooper (to the right).
I see no need to replace my CW Clones with this EP2 Clone. I´ll just make sure
that in mocs the EP2 Clones are in the front.

The droidekas doesn´t really rock, but with some folding they can roll. I think the droidekas are actually quite nice. Certainly very playable and the kids won´t complain. If you don´t like them they are made of some very useful parts anyway.

Playablility is as good as any and kids will love this. Afols will look at this as an expensive EP2 Clone armybuilder with some great parts in it.
I will probably buy some more these on sale, but since I bought set 8014 when it was available I don´t really need more clones.

I too don't mind the destroyer droids.....there will be some members who will say again that Lego can't get it right.
That flick fire weapon is used while no one is sitting at that terminal.
Brick On Review On 'mordatre' !

I didn't realized how good is this set!
The new clone is very rich in details, and makes me think in buy few more (and I have lots of the first clone-2002)
The droid era is the best, by far, when we compare them with the first " Jedi duel"
The pieces of the hole set are exceptionally good!
Thank you againqq

I am just eyeing for those clone troopers.
I came out of my dark ages few years ago and I missed the clone troopers battle pack. I am aiming to build an army of phase 1 clone troopers so I guess this might be my chance here,,,

I'm in exactly the same boat. However, I just invested in buying some phase 1 clones off ebay, and so the armour doesnt quite match with this armour, so I'm in a pickle whether to continue with the ebay ones or start off with the ones from these new BP's. I'll probably just end up with a mixture and hope no one notices ;).
Why cant TLG leave anything alone!?
With regards to the set, I'm relatively impressed, although I always feel BP's are a little over-priced, especially as in this one there are only two actual minifigures. I do like the droidikas though!

I never buy any set at full RRP. I would wait till there's a clearance or massive sale or something like that so I could get multiples of those.

Clones are the obvious standout, nice to get them updated in movie format; not just clone wars.

One for the sales and I expect it to be on sale quick, as the SW line is starting to fail in the UK. You only have to look at the crazy sale prices on the run up to Christmas to see that! 40% off a few weeks before Christmas for sets only released in the summer. Unheard of before this year!

Current favourite set: Republic Gunship (75021)
Currently playing the role of Lt. Colonel Jack Hendry in Trapped
Award Winning Performances: Earl in It Always Rains, But Sometimes its Sunny; Adam DeBlanc in Bullied 2; Mark Cowan in Key in the Door

These are Ep2 clones so they´re not from the animated Clone Wars show.
The droidekas are just normal droidekas as seen in the Prequel trilogy.
Here´s the Clone Sergeant at Wookieedia: http://starwars.wiki...rooper_sergeant

I think the reason is that though visors generally look black, they look silver when they are reflecting light, e.g. here. Personally, I like the effect, but I think it should have been incorporated for all clones, not only for officers.
