CW: Clone Trooper (Space Gear)

Space troopers, as seen in the clone wars, love the details on their helmet; however the Basic Figures details don’t look as nice & accurate as the ones in the movie. As a collector of troopers had to get them, it was the only one which I was able to get in the wave, wanted to get Padme & the Mud Guard, but they were all sold out….

As I was only able to get my hands on ONE! I am sorry that I can’t open and take pictures of the actual figure; the best I could give you is close up of the figure from the box… The Space Trooper is fitted with a standard clone trooper body, repainted and added a chest plate with breathing mask & a blaster pistol pocket.

Although the marking on it is not as accurate as the series/illustration, I probably try to get my hands on another 2 more MAX, to display with Plo Koon on my sleeves. Too bad I couldn’t get Padme…she will go well with Commander Fox & Corusant Guards.

CW: Commander Fox

The Chargers are set; he and his squad of Corusant Guards are backed against the wall ready to storm the Palace of Ziro the Hutt! The Explosion rips the door apart, and he and his squad bust in to aid Senator Padme…..

Commander Fox the second most anticipated Commander to see in the Clone Wars Movie aside from Captain Rex, I remember while watching the show, I couldn’t help but wondered when would he make his appearance.

Ahhh figure…a repaint of Captain Rex Body, thus having the same articulation and with the head of Obi wan Clone Helmet. Great details on the chest amour and helmet, however I fine that his neck seems elongated, then the rest of the other clones, may because Rex head sinks deeper in the stub then his….
