New Star Wars Vintage Collection and Black Series clone troopers added to Gaming Greats line

Even if you aren’t a gamer, it’s going to be hard to pass on these new clonetrooper designs.

On Tuesday, StarWars.com injected the penultimate week of their Bring Home the Bounty campaign with some unexpected clone repaints. These designs come from Star Wars: Battlefront II, a game I grow more and more tempted to play with each new toy reveal from its library of characters/appearances.

We’ll kick things off with the Vintage Collection reveals, which will be part of the Gaming Great subline. All of these will retail for $15.99 and go up for preorder on Wednesday, December 22 at 1:00 PM EST (no announced arrival date yet). Thanks to some digging by Yakface.com, we also know that each figure will be exclusive to different retailers, which is all types of annoying. Yakface was also kind/awesome enough to link to each figure’s preset launch page–give them a click if you want to have it saved beforehand!

Listen to the latest episode of our Star Wars podcast, Talkin' Tauntauns!

ARC Trooper

One of the Clone Wars’ most formidable troopers is also an Infiltrator Reinforcement unit in Battlefront II. I won’t even pretend to understand what that means, but the armor paint looks really cool.

This one will be exclusively available from BigBadToyStore.com.

ARC Trooper (Lambent Seeker)

The Lambent Seeker‘s look is based on a purchasable appearance/skin in Battlefront II. The figure will also be a fan channel exclusive, meaning that most major toy-specific e-tailers (BigBadToyStore, DorksideToys, Entertainment Earth, etc.) should have it.

ARC Trooper (Umbra Operative)

The Umbra Operative is another purchasable appearance/skin in Battlefront II and by far my favorite of this bunch. It will be exclusively available from Entertainment Earth.

We’ll close things out with the sole Black Series offering from today’s Bring Home the Bounty reveals.

Despite just stating how much I like this design, it’s still not quite cool enough to get me to buy the 6″ scale version of the figure–even with my love/obsession with clone troopers.

If you want it, however, the figure will be exclusively sold through GameStop and retail for $26.49.
