Nice, but I always said Koto should have made different poses for the Clones the way they did the Sandtroopers.

I agree with you on that, these troopers should have different poses, that's what keeps me from buying the different versions

Exactly. Not sure why they didn't at least make different sets of arms. As much as I love the Clones, I couldn't justify buying so many of the same figure just in different colors.


Yo I'm sittin on top of the- It's more than a feeling ain't it?
I be killin damn it, I'm illin and I'm illin'
Eh eh eh meet Mr. Popular, Go get your binoculars
And see Penthouse 3 where a ni**a be
They whisperin about us
I know you haters doubt us
How you count our money we ain't even finish countin'
Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

Yeah, but with Hasbro figures you can pose it just about anyway you want

Exactly. That's the big difference (besides the fact that 4 Koto Clones will run you $400 and 4 Hasbro Clones will run you $32). You don't have any choice in the matter of display when it comes to Koto.

Ordered 4-LOM and IG-88 off of ebay for $70 each and $10 combined shipping.   Can't wait to get them!     Still have to get Boba and the Yoda/Sidious but I couldn't pass up this deal.

Koto TIE Fighter Pilot is already in stock at BBTS but I use "Pile of Loot" and ship it together with some other items that will arrive only in August. So I'll wait a bit but save on shipping

A friend got me the Boba Fett Version 2 for my Birthday

This piece is amazing. So much more dynamic than the first one.

You must get this. I now have Vader's left arm doing nothing as I don't intend to purchase the other bounty hunters

What do you think about the possibility of this statue to lean over time since Boba has only one foot on ground?

It does seem quite sturdy.

The grounded foot does look like he's wearing a high heeled boot, but heh if he were on tip toes he would most certainly topple.

I guess only time will tell.

 I received the TIE Fighter Pilot but have to keep him boxed until the display cabinets at the new house are ready.

Check out the new Sandwatch LIVE review:

There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

That's a cool review... but they did the Build-A-Figure before this with the Bounty Hunters, where you could build Darth Vader.

What I should have said was NOT with only 3 figures. Yes it was done before with the bounty hunters.

They are nice but way too tiny. Hope Koto to go back to their 1:7 statues.

They did say in NYC the ARTFX line will be revisited this year. I'm not so sure about with what.  :-\

They should go with Aliens, armored troopers and clones.
