What The 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper Should Look Like

Posted by Paul | November 17, 2013 at 01:40 PM EDT |

JTA reader and friend Josh M. sends us a little eye candy on what the 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper from The Black Series should look like. Hasbro claims to know about this error and that it's in motion to be corrected (and rumors have abounded since the prototype was shown off at Celebration Europe), but we can attest that it has still not been corrected in wave 3 of The Black Series line, unless they plan to do a running revision at some point. We're clinging to hope that this figure stays in circulation long enough to be fully corrected, but our hope is slowly growing dim. In the meantime, please click through for a better idea on how this character should look utilizing this sculpt.
