ARF Trooper Waxer was released in a 2-pack during the
Clone Wars Collection as a Target exclusive in February/March 2011. The figure was packed-in together with a
Battle Droid and is based on the Landing At Point Rain and Weapons Factory
episodes from the second season of The Clone Wars.
Just like ARF Trooper Boil, Waxer features 14 points of articulation, with all
the joints being ball-jointed, including the wrists, the waist and the hip. Waxer stands quite well by himself, unless he's displayed with the gatling-gun in his hands, which causes him to
loose balance, and you'll need to use the included stand for additional stability. There were two weapons included with Waxer, a basic Clone Trooper blaster, and a gatling-type gun. The
basic blaster is a good fit for both hands. The bigger gun can be placed well into Waxer's hands, but it'll take some patience to get it right. There is no head sculpt underneath the helmet, and there
are no other removable pieces on the armor.
The paint application on ARF Trooper Waxer is nicely done and all the yellow markings seem to be in the correct spots. The ball-joint-only sculpt looks nice, with very well hidden
joints and an overall very good likeness to the character from the TV show. All in all, ARF Trooper Waxer turned out nicely, and is a fine addition to any Clone Wars Collection!
