As seen in the the CW series: Episode 9 "Cloak of Darkness", Argyus was entrusted in escorting Viceroy Nut Gunray to Coruscant alongside Jedi Master Luminara Unduli and Padawan Ahsoka.
Unknown to the Republic, Argyus was bribed by the Separatist into adding the escape of Gunray.
Moreover Argyus and Dooku were friends, as when Argyus was a recruit, the ship he was escorting fell under separatist attack and Argyus was hurt badly, which Dooku was aboard and save his life.
In the end Argyus was successful in completing his mission and was boosting to Ventress , that he would report to Dooku on his success, thus removing the credit from Ventress.
That's when Ventress drove the light through the pilot seat into Argyus chest, which killed him instantly.
A sad ending for Argyus but he had that coming with his arrogance overflowing.
Now, for the figure which i have been waiting for! every since i first saw Argyus in the series, it was a must get for me....and now i finally got it!

Over view of the Figure:
- Overall Great looking Figure! best view of the figures is from the side.
- Shoulder Pad and its detailed illustration really seals the deal on the purchase...
- The COLOR! too light...
- Helmet check piece too flimsy, should be harder.
Really Glad Hasbro made this! it came out looking Awesome!
The ancient looking Greek Soldier looking helmet and the clone trooper armor with an nicely detailed shoulder pad was a nice mix! like beacon & eggs (random right?)
I only have issue with the color, as the Senate Commando or Argyus for that matter had darker blue colored armor in the series!
The light blue given to this figure isn't bad, but it ain't great either!
However having said that, i hope Hasbro will revised the senate commando, if they are ever are going to produce that! and hopefully Argyus color will still be able to fit in with his troopers....
Figure: 9/10 (minus point on the color)
