Compare this Clone Trooper figure
This Clone Trooper was released in the Anti-Hailfire Droid Squad battlepack during The Clone Wars collection in August 2010. The set included 4 Star Wars figures - with this figure being in the set twice - plus a Clone Commander and an Aerial Recon Trooper. As of this review - Clone Troopers from Bantha Squad haven't had an appearance yet in the Clone Wars TV show.
The Clone has 12 points of articulation - missing only ankle joints. There are ball-joints in the neck - shoulders - elbows and the knees. The wrists - the waist - and both legs are swivel jointed. The figure does stand by itself OK - but since there are no adjustable ankles - it stands a little shaky. Besides the battle game card - the die and the stand - Hasbro included a blaster rifle with the figure. Unfortunately - the trooper has problems holding it - and it keeps falling out of both hands. Luckily - one of the clones has the blaster rifle attached via a small rubber band - so if you want to display the figure holding the blaster rifle - you'll want to keep the rubber band in place. The clone trooper helmet is not removable.
The paint application on the Bantha Squad Trooper is only average - but cleanly applied without any factory errors or smudges. Since this character has not been seen in the animated TV show yet - we can't comment on how well it compares to the source. However - the sculpt and the markings created by Hasbro fit right in with any of your other animated-style Clone Troopers in the collection. All in all - this Clone Trooper from the Anti-Hailfire Droid Squad isn't as good as it could have been - but it still looks nice on display aiming at your Hailfire Droid!
Hailfire droids present a significant challenge to the clone trooper army. They quickly establish a special squad to fight these rolling devastators. Bantha Squad includes specialists in heavy weapons - aerial recon and demolitions. With these combined skills - the squad can pinpoint these droids and attack them with the weapons and firepower necessary to immobilize and demolish them early in any assault operation.
Clone Troopers: The troopers use a modified version of the Turbo Tank's heavy laser cannon to bombard the droid with weapons fire before the final application of explosives.
