This Special Ops Clone Trooper 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 the
Geonosian Drone and is based on the Landing At Point Rain
story arch from the second season of The Clone Wars.
The Special Ops Clone has 14 points of articulation, including a ball-jointed neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed elbows, 2 swivel wrists, a ball-jointed waist,
2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees and 2 ball-jointed ankles. There are no balancing issues at all, and the figure can hold the only weapon included, a basic blaster, well in both hands. Unfortunately, the
Special Ops Clone Troopers were seen in "Landing At Point Rain" wearing backpacks, but there was no backpack included with the figure. There
is no face underneath the helmet, and there are no other parts on the armor which can be removed.
The paint application on the Special Ops Clone Trooper is well applied, and the color tone fits well with the previously released
Flamethrower Clone Trooper. Unfortunately, there is no dirt or battle damage to be found on the armor.
The figure's super articulated sculpt leaves only little to be improved upon, and should please a lot of fans of
clone trooper figures.
