I have found it difficult to get excited about the Black Series 6" Clone Trooper. I am not sure why. Maybe it is because I prefer the mk2 helmet or perhaps I was expecting him to be a bit "cartoony" like some of his 3.75" brothers.
I finally picked him up a couple of weeks back from Film n Figures in Chorley, but had him whipped away and "put away" for my Birthday. Now I finally have my hands on him I am still not overly excited with him as a figure, but he is much better than I was perhaps expecting.
The Trooper arrives in the now defunct black with orange trim box, and is packed with a rifle and a hand blaster. Paint is good, but like the Stormtrooper there are small areas that just arent quite perfect - although these dont detract massively from the figure.
Posibility is good and on par with the Storm Trooper, and despite the armour he can achieve a number of good poses and hold his rifle in one or two handed poses.
Negatives are the plastic used for the knees which are obviously black and then painted white - unlike the rest of the armour which has been cast in pure white.
Like the ST this guy is going to come into his own displayed in squads or even larger armies. As a luke warm fan of the PT I will probably add one more and then the upcoming sergeant to make a nice trio for the PT display. Going forward I then expect Hasbro will give us plenty of different clone flavours and colours, with Commander Cody already on the cards.
Solid enough figure, but not exciting enough for me. PT and CW fans should love him.
