The 1st Enlisted Stormtrooper by kevinbolk The 1st Enlisted Stormtrooper by kevinbolk
This has been kind of a recurring nightmare for me: being the first non-clone stormtrooper and knowing no matter how many rebel scum I vaporized, I would never fit in. I think it might be a metaphor for my life. XD

Not to sound to much like a whiny nerd, I never got behind the whole "clone trooper" thing. I kinda liked the idea of it being enlisted guys. I think it made it more "real" and gave me freedom to imagine "Man, wonder if that guy Han Solo just blasted had a wife and kids?" 9.9

Oh, and yes, the helmet fits. It just goes on and off with a very loud "pop!". Imagine that for your amusement. XD

Careful, clones. Soon or later, cloning will be become obsolete.

Wouldn't it be ironic if one of those clone-Stormtroopers remarked, "I bet he's a terrible shot!"? XD

Don't you know? It's common for Stormtroopers to have terrible aim. Just take a really good look at how they fire their blasters in the original trilogy, you'll see what I mean.

Given that the Classic Trilogy troopers sound nothing like Jango, I'm guessing this is actually right.  I'm wondering how many clones can be produced at a time anyway.  The Kaminoans gave the impression they needed time to grow more in Ep 2.

That is true. Another thing is that the original trilogy stormtroopers got nothing on the clones. Don't get me wrong, some are actually competent, and the ones on the Death Star just let the rebels go, but unless they are precise in hitting a sand crawler, they suck in general.

And about the time, the kaminoans said they age twice the rate of average humans, so clones would take a decade to be mature enough for war.

There are actually clones who have gone off and had a family. One even had a child with a Jedi (though the latter was killed during Order 66).

Though most of those were clones who'd defected from the Republic/Empire, there are a select few (the most prominent named above, part of the 501st) that served under the Republic/Empire, but still maintained a secret, family life.

Not all stormtroopers were clones. In fact, only the 501st (AKA Vader's Fist) were clones; they were the best Imperial AND Republic soldiers in history.

The Galactic Marines were very highly skilled, many of which were integrated into the 501st on the regular, but they were basically the regulars. Think of the 501st as the special forces of the Republic, under that of the Commandos.

I'm going to get a lot of hate for this, but I didn't mind the prequels, AT ALL. But most stormtroopers were enlistees, towards the end of the war, but there were various other clone templates at the time too.

You won't get any hate from me, I read the original book when it first came out, before I saw 'Star Wars' as it was back then. I knew about Palpatine becoming Emperor by subversion. My only gripe is that he changed a bit of the plot to get the droids in and it should've been rather a bit more than 18 years prequel. Think about who trained Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Leia remembered her mother a bit; which would suggest she wasn't a new born babe when Padme died. Other than that, I don't see why the hate; they set the scene for Ep4,5 &6.

According to Commander Cody, non-clone human soldiers were "expendable buffoons," and expresses this even further when he sees a non-clone storm trooper hit his head on a blast door. I suppose the clones were insulted by the enlisting of non-clones. George Lucas designed the clones with a big sense of loyalty, which also means they're loyal to their brothers... Bravo in this cartoon! It made my day! :D

I think the "clone trooper" concept was just another way for George Lucas to eliminate any guilt he might feel from allowing his heroic characters to do morally ambiguous things. Han casually kills Greedo in the middle of a bar? That's okay -- Greedo shoots first now, so it was SELF-DEFENSE! Luke and pals kill Stormtroopers by the thousands? Don't worry, they were all CLONES who were CREATED to be lightsaber-fodder. Somewhere down the road, George Lucas must have decided that only "bad" people do "bad" things and "good" people can only do "good" things, and then retconned "Star Wars" to fit into his insanely unrealistic black-and-white view.
