If that gear actually existed it would weigh 100 pounds. I'm not impressed with this. The paintjob looks sloppy and the figure looks a bit too clunky overall.

This dude is pretty clunkariffic, all right.

I'm not really down with all this naming and nicknaming among a vast group of clones. Does that make sense, really? On one hand you'd think a bunch of clones would grab at any nickname they could think of, and do things like burn their eyebrows off and get all kinds of scars to set themselves apart. On the other hand, they're all clones. If none of your army buddies liked you, you could wait until one of them dies in combat and take his place.
