Compare this Clone Pilot (Gunship Pilot) figure
This Gunship Pilot was released in Fall of 2009's The Legacy Collection - in a battle pack titled Geonosis Assault. The battle pack contained two of this clone trooper figure - and a Gunship pod where the figure can sit inside. The Gunship pod can be attached to a Gunship - or it can be a stand-alone unit. Gunship Pilots were very briefly seen in Attack Of The Clones - when Anakin and Obi-Wan are trying to capture Count Dooku.
The clone trooper is super articulated with 14 joints - including a ball-jointed neck - shoulders - elbows - waist - knees and ankles. The only swivel joints are in both wrists. The pilot's helmet is a good fit and easily covers the entire head. The chest box is permanently attached to the helmet - but hangs down loosely on the front of the trooper. There is no hole in the figure's chest where the chest box can be plugged in - like on some other pilot figures. This is great - because if you want to display the figure without the helmet on - you won't see a hole in the chest. The included blaster is a great fit for either of the Gunship Pilot's hands - and won't fall out every time you reposition the clone. The figure does fit in the Gunship pod - it's a very tight fit - but with enough patience - it's possible to make it look OK.
The paint application is cleanly applied with no smudges or paint errors - and the armor is kept in a pristine condition without any dirt or battle markings. The head sculpt - and the mold are not something we haven't seen yet before when it comes to clone troopers - but all in all - it's a nice - super articulated figure. If you are looking for clone troopers to pilot your Gunship - this version is probably the one you want to pick up.
Clone Troopers arrive on Geonosis in Republic Gunships to support the Jedi - who are battling Geonosian warriors and battle droids. Troopers in armored spheres operate the bubble-turret cannons that extend with laser fire in this opening salvo of the Clone Wars.
