Commentary: White this Clone Trooper was originally known to fans as a weird, rust-dotted concept abandoned from the film, we now know it's part of the 7th Legion. A new version of this legion of clone is just starting to hit, but this one is significantly less poseable. Based on a modified version of a figure from Clone Wars, but with a retooled head and torso. This Clone Trooper is a standing trooper that aims his rifle. He can move his head, his arms, his wrist, and his waist-- so basically, all you can have him do is stand and aim. The markings were unique to this figure until just now, so picky fans would be best served just picking up the new version-- even though this one is probably cheaper, and if you're building out a diorama, significantly more cost-effective. It's not a lot of fun since it can't sit or really do much other than stand and fire, so you might not want to get this one unless you're really looking to build your own Grand Army of the Republic or you just have to collect them all. (No that there's anything wrong with that.)
Collector's Notes: This figure in this pose was made available in three of the four configurations of this deluxe 3-pack. The figure was also available in plain white.
