This cartoon-style ARC Trooper was released individually carded in Spring 2005, and was later the same year re-packed as a Walmart exclusive in the Jedi Force Pack along with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. ARC Troopers were first seen on screen in the Tartakovsky Clone Wars cartoon in 2003.
The ARC Trooper has 4 joints, including a ball-jointed neck, 2 swivel arms and a swivel waist. The rest of the figure is static. The trooper can be balanced out OK, but for more stability, you might want to use the included stand. Hasbro included 2 blasters with the figure, which fit both nicely into the holsters. The ARC Trooper's left hand can also hold the blaster very well. The helmet, the range-finder, the shoulder armor and the karma around the waist are not removable.
The paint application on the cartoon-style ARC Trooper matches the TV version quite well. The sculpt looks nice and does a good job capturing the hand-signal poses these troopers were seen in. It's a cool looking figure overall, and a great addition to the cartoon-style Tartakovsky Clone Wars line-up.
