Preview Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Clone Wars Captain Rex - Phase II Armor 1/6 Figure

When Sideshow Collectibles first previewed their 1/6 scale Star Wars Clone Wars Captain Rex way back in May 2010 (posted in my toy blog HERE), I lamented how they only have him wearing the Phase 1 helmet (which I didn't fancy at all). Well, guess what? After four years, Sideshow Collectibles has decided to release the Star Wars Clone Wars Captain Rex - Phase II Armor Sixth Scale Figure and this one comes with battle scars :)

One of Kamino’s most esteemed and decorated soldiers in the Clone Wars, Captain Rex serves under Jedi General Anakin Skywalker as leader of the 501st.

Ready to lead the charge, Sideshow’s Captain Rex - Phase II Armor Sixth Scale figure comes fully equipped with his signature grey pauldron, kama and twin blasters, along with a carbine blaster and droid popper for backup. Never one to follow the crowd, the aggressive and freethinking Captain shuns the standard upgrades for his highly customized Phase II gear. His Phase II bucket boasts blue jaig eyes, a Mandalorian badge of courage, along with rangefinder and other welded modifications. Often faced with danger in the line of duty, numerous tally marks along the seasoned fighter's helmet and armor paint a vivid picture of his victories in battle.

Despite his unusual individualism as a clone, there is no doubt that Captain Rex is loyal to his fellow troopers, and always puts the mission first.

Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Clone Wars 1/6 scale Captain Rex - Phase II Armor 12-inch Figure will come with Detailed Captain Rex Phase II Hybrid Helmet sculpt, Detailed Captain Rex portrait, Fully Articulated Armored Body, Full Body Armor with customized chest piece, Pauldron with chest pouch, "Belt with Holsters, Fabric Kama Skirt, Thirteen (13) interchangable hands, One (1) pair standing pose feet, One (1) pair action pose feet, Droid popper, Two (2) DC-17 hand blasters, DC-15S Blaster Carbine, Black 'Star Wars' logo base. Sideshow Exclusive: Captain Rex Display base

I always feel that all the clone troopers are merely repaints from the same mold because they all have the same identical clone trooper armor but at least the Captains were more individualistic and had slightly different designs and variations, making each of them unique in their own right and Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Clone Wars 1/6 scale Captain Rex with Phase II Armor is no exception.

Under the helmet is the detailed Captain Rex portrait which looks pretty much the same as the other clone troopers and captains because they are all clones after all, made from the DNA of one Jango Fett. Check out the Medicom Toys Star Wars Episode II Jango Fett Bounty Hunter 12-inch figure reviewed HERE and see the similarity of the head sculpt.
