since this figure has been made from the Stone mold
You don't want anything else, and I've noticed some collectors really despise it. Personally, I don't even pay attention to that. I couldn't care less which body is used for the Clone Troopers. I find it amusing that people have such strong opinions one way or the other.

I'm wondering how the flesh tone of this new figure would look if I swapped heads to the Rex I currently have. He seems to be much lighter in the photos, so I'm not sure if it would mesh well.

In my opinion, collectors dislike the Stone mold because it lacks ankle joints, and it also lacks the wrist joints that were used on the original mold. I can't argue against them, since I think the Stone mold would definitely benefit from the addition of ankle joints. But I just prefer the aesthetics of the Stone mold: it more closely resembles the way the clones look on the show.

I've seen several people refer to it as ugly (or similar adjectives). Like I said, I don't have a preference either way. I think they look fine standing next to one another, too.

I prefer the body of the Stone mold because the joint between the chest and abdomen never sits right on the other body style. The solid body is more aesthetically pleasing. I like articulation as much as the next guy, but it doesn't trump the overall aesthetic of the figure.

Ugly, huh? That strikes me as odd, since the Stone mold closely resembles the design of the clones seen on the show, at least to my eye. And if anything, I would say that it looks better than the original mold, since it makes the troopers look bulkier, and corrects the "cankles" and the incorrect elbow armor.

I like the two-piece torsos, and I haven't had any issues with them in this line. Marvel Universe and the occasional G.I. JOE figure are another story, though, so I do know what you mean.

I have never paid any attention to elbow armor.

I know! I should turn in my fan card right now.
