far, far away, a group of Star Wars fans teamed up to journey together on an epic

is guaranteed by participating in their new "Pick your favorite Clone Trooper
armor style!" poll!
Choose from a variety of Episode III clones: 501st, Shock Trooper, 212th (orange),
187th (purple), 9th Assault Corps (gray), and 38th armored (tan). My guess is it will
be a tight race between the 501st and the Shock Trooper! Head
