This Clone Heavy Trooper action figure was released in an exclusive Toys'R'Us 6-pack in the summer of 2009. The entire set was a re-release from The Anniversary Collection's exclusive "Previews" set. The Heavy Trooper could be seen in the Battlefront II video game which was released across multiple gaming platforms, but was never seen in any of the movies.
The figure has 11 joints, missing articulated knees and a movable waist. The rest of the joints are all over the place, for example, Hasbro gave the right side of the figure ball-joints in the shoulder and elbow, but then only gave it a swivel joint in the left shoulder and a swivel joint in the left elbow. In addition to that, Hasbro included an action feature in this figure, which moves both arms up simultaneously when you squeeze both legs together.
The helmet is not removable, but the "waist protection skirt" is. Without it though, the clone looks a bit skinny so you probably want to keep it on the figure. The rocket launcher can be held by the figure, but the weight of it will make the figure fall over. Hasbro added peg holes in the clone's feet though, so you can use a stand if you have one.
The paint job on the Heavy Trooper is cool with lots of dirt and battle markings on the armor. Overall, the figure gets high marks for its looks, and very low marks for its joints and limited pose-ability.
