Okay, I have a question about the new armour. On one of the videos (I believe it was from a Club Jade blog post), which was a sneak peak video from the Star Tours show, it showed new armour, which I was certain was this newfangled 1.5 set. However, recent comments on here and on twitter have led me to believe that it's the version 2 armour we see in Ep III.
What do you all think? Or have we already seen this 1.5 armour?
A quote from LightsabreRattling, which made me suspicious of the 2 armour claims (Slight spoilers in the first paragraph):

|New Clone Trooper Story Arc with Captain Rex:
Umbara is a new planet shrouded in darkness & for the first time you get to see clone troopers killing non-droids, but infact humaniods that live on the planet. All the technology the Umbarans fight with weapons you’ve never seen before. Fans have actually seen Umbarans before; Palpatine’s creepy aid is an Umbaran. And a lot of the favorite troopers who have survived so far like Captain Rex and Fives will show up in this episode.
New Faces and Armor:
They changed the look of a lot of the main characters like Anakin, Ahsoka and Obi-Wan, so this season they upgraded the facial expressions on the clone faces and changed some of the armor as well. Captain Rex doesn’t like the new armor because he thinks it’s too disposable so he makes a hybrid of his old armor welded together with his new armor. He’s worried that the Republic looks at the clones as more of a disposable army.
