With #RogueFriday (the second annual #ForceFriday) now in the books, STAR WARS fans are already looking ahead, and if my inbox is any indication, the months ahead will have no shortage of fantastic new STAR WARS toys and collectibles hitting the streets - from stories both new and old. "Order 66" is among the most infamous actions that occurred during the rise of The Empire, and from my friends at Entertainment Earth comes their latest Exclusive in partnership with Hasbro: STAR WARS: The Black Series Clone Troopers of Order 66 6" Action Figure 4-Pack. These just went up for pre-order, and all of the details can be seen below...

Entertainment Earth Exclusive! Bring home an entire army in one box with this Star Wars The Black Series Clone Troopers of Order 66 6-Inch Action Figures - Entertainment Earth Exclusive. The set brings you four 6-inch scale plastic action figures in the employ of the Republic. Each features awesome weapons and amazing paint, so you really should pick up a few of them to serve the Jedi - until they decide to move in a different direction. Ages 4 and up. 

Clone Troopers

They're the first-ever 6" figures based on The Grand Army of the Republic's various factions from STAR WARS: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH!

Each set includes:

  • 501st Legion Clone Trooper – The Grand Army of the Republic’s finest battalion, these blue-striped soldiers became “Vader’s Fist,” helping the Sith Lord carry out his slaughter of the innocents at Coruscant’s Jedi Temple.
  • 212th Attack Battalion Clone Trooper – Identifiable by their distinctive orange-trimmed armor, the 212th defeated Separatist battle droids on Utapau – but, during Order 66, they came close to making Obi-Wan Kenobi their final victory.
  • 442nd Siege Battalion Clone Trooper – Don’t let their armor’s cool green accents fool you: The clones of the 442nd were experts at making the fortresses they besieged, such as those on Cato Neimoidia (where Order 66 claimed Plo Koon) feel some serious heat.
  • Shock Trooper – Bred in secret on Coruscant under Palpatine’s personal supervision, these “peacekeepers” with angry red armor plating became the Emperor’s personal security detail after Order 66 (prefiguring the later Imperial Guard, cloaked head-to-toe in crimson).
