Old Clone troopers vs. Stormtroopers.

Generally, which ones do you think look better ?
IMO the old Clone Trooper, like the ones we saw in ep.3.
The markings are just awesome and the overall look is übercool. The normal white Stormtrooper is pretty boring.

I think the episode 3 clones have the best uniforms, but the stormtroopers are definately my favorite just because they're from the originals.

I like the Ep3 clones and Stormtroopers equally.

I like the clone troopers more i think as they look better, but then the stormtroopers are so great but i think is clones just as they have all different uniforms really.

I consider Episode III's Clone Troopers better, because they seem to be more efficient and gifted at blasters' use than Stormies...

I like the "look" of the ARC Troopers best, but my loyalty as far as being my favorite must stand with the 'original' (ep. IV, V, VI) Stormtroopers...

I think The episode 3 clonetroopers look cooler, especially Gree, and Neyo, but the OT Stormtroopers, still hold a special place in my heart.

Just going by the movies, the ones in the prequels simply have larger numbers and better equipment (even if the OT walkers are better, they have fewer of them and less support vehicles and equipment).

The best Stormtroopers we've seen in the classic trilogy are the ones that go to Tatooine to look for the droids. We don't see a single one of them killed, but granted, we don't see most of their "battles." They were the best equipped and seemed the most elite.

The Stormtroopers are supposed to be better, but overall we see the Prequel era troopers in a much better light.

Then again Lucas says that the "modern" Stormtroopers aren't all from the same genetic stock of Jango (which supposedly made them all so uniformly great). So they could be better or worse. But ultimately the gear and equipment is the most important thing, and of course training.


As to the armor being "better" that's a matter of interpretation. On the one hand, the OT armor might be said to be "better" if it's more comfortable or lighter or something. But in terms of protection it doesn't seem to be any better. Blasters from both eras easily kill troopers. Are the blasters in the OT significantly stronger than the ones in the PT era? Who knows. But we do know that the handguns used both eras are adequate for taking out the armored troopers of that era. The armor doesn't seem that worthwhile for combat protection, at least not in the movies. That doesn't mean it couldn't be useful in other ways (like identification, NCB protection, etc) but you get what I'm saying I hope.

Han shot one of them. And according to EU, another was shot in friendly-fire.

I'd say the best action the Stormtroopers were in was boarding the Tantive IV.

It did establish them as a scary force, making the heroes seem truely gifted in their ability to take them out.

I think you know those Stormtroopers were especially trained for this kind of assault. So, it isn't really surprising if they prefectly achieved their work aboard the "Tantive IV"...
(I could say the same thing about Sandtroopers, in Mos Eisley...)

Oh you're right, or he got knocked over from shrapnel. Forgot about that!

Was the "friendly fire" that BS story about how the "look sir, droids!" guy felt guilty about all the murdering he'd been doing and killed his commanding officer in order to escape and join the Rebels?

As to the Tantive IV action, I don't see what was so great about the Troopers. Sure, they showed nerves of steal moving into that deathtrap, but other than their apparent ability to see through smoke and having a larger force, it doesn't show them as particularly skilled, just disciplined. The Tatooine troopers show their relentlessness, admittedly offscreen against weak targets, but it just shows better their utterly ruthelss pursuit of their goals, plus you can see they are loaded down with special gear.

But, in terms of showing them IN action I suppose you have a point.

The courage of the Stormtroopers gets the better of them in ROTJ when they race off into the woods chasing a few teddy bears, only to get ambushed by said teddies.

Killed the person who ordered him to murder. Doesn't sound too unreasonable.

I actually don't know it, I like both Stormtroopers and EPIII Clonetroopers (not the EPII ones, those are )Though I more like the 501'st EPIII Clonetroopers then the 501'st Stormies.

Personally for me I like the Stormtroopers better. Something about the mostly white uniforms seems badass. Perhaps I would have liked the clone troopers better if they had cloned this guy: www.ditty-o.com
