In photos I've seen all versions so what's the final result with the new Shogun from Queen? I'm guessing I'd prefer clear but if it's green or black it's not all bad.

The copy I saw being played at BGG.CON had a clear base for the tower. It looks very cool.

It's clear.

The prerelease prototype was green (taken from Wallenstein) and the images in the manual use a black (photoshoped green?) base, since a clear one wouldn't show up in print.

It's not as strong as I expected, it's relatively thin plastic. How does this compare to the Wallenstein one? Is it just as thin? Is the plastic less flexible?

The new clear base looks good but is pretty bad plastic - too thin and/or too soft. The tower wobbles much more than the Wallenstein one. I am not amused.

it wobbles? I didn't notice, will have to check as soon as I get home today
(I agree on the plastic, it's not bad but could've been sturdier)

Is the Shogun base the same shape and size as the one from Wallenstein? Are they interchangeable?

I wouldn't care if the color is "tutti-frutti". The sumbiches are 6 weeks late with my pre-ordered copy, and bummin' me out big time, while the guys across the pond are just playin' away. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
