Clone Trooper #6 Blue Variant. Real or Hoax?
« on: November 16, 2005, 06:32:20 PM »
Hey Everyone,

While checking out eBay recently I saw a Quick Draw Clone Trooper #6 but, it was special. The seller showed it packaged just as the normal #6 and the Shocktrooper variant however, it was stated to be a blue variant. It appeared to be a 501st, as from the Jedi Assault pack. The seller claimed it was an actual figured that was sold on the shelf and a verifiable variant. Unfortunatly, the item has since sold (last I saw it, it was nearing $100.00 with time to go) so you can't see it for yourself.

Anyway, that is the one and only I ever saw listed. I have never seen one on the shelves and I have never seen one at any shopping or collectors websites.

Does anyone have one? Can you verify if it's real or fake? I don't really want one, I just want to know if someone got ripped off. Obviously I understand that a packaging snafu may have occurred at Hasbro resulting in the figure. However, my vote is that it is BOGUS!

I've never heard tell of this variant, and am pretty sure it's bulls**t.  I'm guessing it's a custom or a repackl all sealed up and sold to suckers

Sounds like someone got duped. Remember the old saying, "If it sounds to good to be true....". 
Failure is not in my vocabulary

All I know, is the idiot who was dumb enough to pay the final price, deserves to lose his/ her cash. People that dont use common sence get burned like this all the time, and if they arent willing to do the research, then they deserve the loss. JMO.

Most likely it was a switcharoo! If it was a #6 and painted as a blue shock trooper - it would be pretty easy to spot. Especially if they used sealant on the trooper. If it was the classic switch with a #6 from the jedi assault set, then it would just suck to know that some jerk went out of their way to lose a trooper from that 5 pack - I have seen the clone pilots and anakin stuffed into SA trooper packs....

So buyer beware..... and if it is too good to be true, it probably is....


If the blue shock trooper looked great, then maybe it would be worth shelling out $4.77 for someone's art work.... the helmet work alone would be worth it if they made it look neat.

A friend of mine just picked up a TRU Mega Buy of Shaak Ti and Agen Kolar, and both packages has the botton cardboard front insert printed Shaak Ti. I examined the Agen Kolar and it looks legit, unopened, a mistake. Anyone else get an Agen Kolar with Shaak Ti bottom insert?

I can't remember where, but I am pretty sure that there were pics floating around of a blue clone that was rumored to be coming out. This one probably wasn't it I am sure, but I think someone posted in the yahell group I am a link showing a blue variant. I will have to go check through the messages over there and ask around. I could be wrong though so don't everyone bash me at once. lol
