SL 09: 501st Legion - Clone trooper

THE 501st Legion!

During the SW era they were know as "Vader's Fist" and The CW (Galactic Civil War) they were called the Five Hundred and First.

This troopers are commissioned by the Dark Emperor himself during his days as the Supreme Chancellor! This trooper are trained and base in Coruscant itself and fought in some of the most notable battles of the Clone Wars!

This AWESOME legion made its first appearance in the EP 3 Revenge Of The Sith, as Anakin has fallen to DARK side and led this MIGHT legion up the steps of Jedi Temple (a breath taking scene..)to eradicate the remaining Jedi Knights & Apprentices , this move was classfied as "Operation Knightfall".

- images above are with reference to "google"

But who's to complain, it troopers? and more troopers are always good! =P

My Comments:

Likes:
- Over all nicely painted & detailed figure. (with morderate battle/blaster damage)

Dislikes:
- None.
My Verdict

Altough this figure has been re-issued countless times, its still a GREAT Figure to have or for army buildig.

Cant wait to do a diorama of 501st marching up the Jedi Temple Steps with Anaking leading them!

If you have miss out the previous waves from ROTS or the Saga Collection then this figure is a must to pick up, for any troopers collectors! and if your not then probably this is the figure you should start with?

Dont miss out on this wave!
