Bio: The clone army is the main force of the Republic. Their armor has been adapted to integrate with different environments and also designates special divisions. These troops are fierce, loyal and single-minded in battle. (Taken from the figure's cardback.)

Commentary: Based on a modified version of a figure from Clone Wars, but with a retooled head and torso. This Clone Trooper has very limited articulation, with his gun molded to his hand. Basically, it's a posed solider-- if you need figures for your Gunships, armies, or other displays, this is the kind of figure you might want to use. With a ball-jointed head, a wrist joint, questionable arm joints, and a waist joint, it isn't going to be doing much but sitting in a pose pretty much exactly like in the picture. It's exciting, isn't it? If it weren't for the deco (which at the time, appeared exclusively on this figure) it probably would've gone ignored. Since a super-poseable version of this Clone came out in late 2006, odds are this one will fall in the cracks of history and be spoken of only in columns like this one.
Collector's Notes: This figure in this pose was made available in three of the four configurations of this deluxe 3-pack. As green is cool, this is a figure worth picking up, I'd say.
