Identical in form, physical prowess, stamina and mental capacity, each of the first generations of clone troopers were fully encased in hard white armor, each identical face concealed behind a t-shaped visor. Eventually, color-coded flashes on the armor denoted rank and later came to signify individual units.
The Sideshow Collectibles 1:6 scale Star Wars Phase 1 Clone Sergeant 12-inch Figure features: Fully articulated male body (armored body) with 30+ points of articulation, Black Bodysuit, Fully detailed armor set with helmet, Clone Trooper Carbine Blaster, Clone Trooper Long Rifle, Generous assortment of switch-out hands, Two (2) pairs of switch-out boots (including action and standing) PLUS 12-inch Figure Display Base with Star Wars Logo
Another Star Wars armored trooper to join the growing ranks of troopers that have already been released, each painted in a different color to denote rank and as the clone wars go on, units as well.
At the time of their introduction, the Republic clone trooper represented the future of galactic warfare. Far superior to the battle droid armies of the era, the clone troopers formed the backbone of the Republic's new military initiative that battled against the forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
So pervasive and symbolic were they of the times, the galaxy-wide conflict that saw their debut took its name from their ranks: the Clone Wars. It would be a long and bloody conflict in the years to come, but the efficiency of the clone trooper infantry would be proven time and again on many scattered worlds.
And Sideshow continues to repaint their standard clone trooper figures and release them to unsuspecting buyers and anyone who just can't get enough of these clone troopers or are looking to build their very own 12-inch Clone army.
Estimated Ship Date: 2nd Qtr 2011
