Compare this Clone Trooper Lieutenant figure
This Clone Trooper Lieutenant was released in the last wave of the comic 2-packs during The Legacy Collection in Spring 2010. The second Star Wars figure in the set was a regular Clone Trooper from the 212th Battalion. The figure is based on a Clone Trooper Lieutenant's appearance in the Dark Horse comic book story titled "Routine Valor".
The trooper is super articulated with 14 joints - with all of them being ball-joints - with the exception of swivel joints in the wrists and legs. The right leg is a little bit shorter than the left - and you'll have to adjust the ankles to balance the figure out. The helmet is a good fit and covers the head nicely. The two hand blasters don't fit very well into the trooper's hands and sit very loose. The blaster rifle however is a good fit. Besides the basic weaponry - Hasbro included a grappling hook - which can be plugged into the blaster rifle's front. The nice thing is - that even though the blaster rifle houses the grappling hook - it's not any bigger than any other basic blaster rifle. There is no mechanism that shoots the grappling hook out - so you'll have to do that manually.
The paint application on the Clone Trooper Lieutenant isn't all that great. The helmet was given a big orange stripe - instead of having it run into a triangular shape towards the front. The armor does have some scratches on the shoulders and the upper chest - but Hasbro didn't add any dirt to the armor or the boots. It looks strange when you see all the holes in the skirt and the scratches in the armor - while everything is shiny and clean. When you look at the ankles - you'll notice that the joints are painted in orange - which should either be a black to show the under suit - or a white - so that it would be still part of the armor. The figure's mold isn't all that great either. Like mentioned before - the right leg is a little bit shorter than the left - and Hasbro neglected to give the figure holsters on both sides - like seen in the comic book. All in all - this Clone Trooper Lieutenant doesn't meet expectations - and is probably only a good addition to the collection if you want to add a generic clone figure to your army.
Clone troopers display more than “Routine Valor” during a battle on Sarrish. When their Republic gunship crashes near a dangerous gun emplacement - the clones launch an attack to capture the promontory on which the gun is anchored. Although the odds are against them - the troopers don’t hesitate to take on the deadly challenge.
