"Clone Commander" is the name given to this character (officially known as "Galactic Marine") because that is what he is called in the Star Wars: Battlefront II
video game. So, it's not really a mistake...from a certain point of view.
For more details on all of these characters, head on over to Wizarduniverse.com
and get ready to vote for your favorite character that YOU want to see made into an action figure in 2007.
It's interesting to see the number of characters from the Expanded Universe
make the list. Perhaps that's something that Hasbro should seriously take a look at...FANS WANT EU FIGURES!
Not all fans of course..in fact, one of our forum members has dubbed the term SWINO (Star Wars In Name Only) when describing the characters not from the movies. No matter where your loyalties lie, be sure to vote for the character YOU want to see made.
Another interesting thing to make note of...the Galactic Marine ("Clone Commander"), Commander Neyo, Hermi Odle, Kir Kanos, Luke Skywalker, and Padmé Amidala (Ilum cold gear) are already on many rumor lists for figures to be made in 2006/2007. So vote accordingly... ;)
